Cardiac remodeling induced by 13-cis retinoic acid treatment in acne patients
Background: Currently, 13-cis-retinoic acid (13-cis-RA) is the most effective therapy for acne. Isotretinoin, a first-generation synthetic 13-cis-RA compound, is associated with numerous adverse effects. To investigate the ...
Reduction of diameter of the left ventricle of dogs by plication of the left ventricular free wall
Objective - To determine effects of reducing the diameter of the left ventricle of dogs by plication of the left ventricular free wall. Animals - 8 healthy adult mixed-breed dogs. Procedure - Left lateral thoracotomy and ...
Plication of the free wall of the left ventricle in dogs with doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy
Objective - To evaluate plication of the free wall of the left ventricle, which reduces the left ventricular area and volume, as a method to improve the left ventricular systolic function without cardiopulmonary bypass. ...
Relações pressão-diâmetro e esforço-diâmetro do ventrículo esquerdo em seres humanos. Padronização e análise crítica do método.
PURPOSE--To provide a critical analysis of the fluid filled manometric system and M-mode echocardiography and, by their association, to standardize the determination of left ventricular (LV) pressure-diameter and stress-diameter ...
Morphological studies on the heart ventricle of African catfish (Clarias gariepinus)
(Blackwell Verlag Gmbh, 2002-08-01)
The histological and ultrastructural characteristics of the heart ventricle in Clarias gariepinus (African catfish) has been studied by light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The ventricle of the heart has ...
Gross Anatomy of the Heart in the Western Grey Kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus)

Improved systolic ventricular function with normal myocardial mechanics in compensated cardiac hypertrophy
There still controversy about the relation between changes in myocardial contractile function and global left ventricular (LV) performance during stable concentric hypertrophy. To clarify this, we analyzed LV function in ...
Relevãncia do padrão de remodelamento ventricular no modelo de infarto do miocárdio em ratos
Background: The relevance of the remodeling pattern in the model of infarcted rats is not known. Objective: To analyze the presence of different patterns of remodeling in this model and its functional implications. Methods: ...
Ventricular systolic reserve in asymptomatic children previously treated with low doses of anthracyclines: A longitudinal, prospective exercise echocardiography study
Background: The time course of mild cardiotoxicity induced by anthracycline remains unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term evolution of decreased myocardial reserve in children previously treated with ...
