Influence of different doses of retinoic acid on cardiac remodeling
(Elsevier B.V., 2014)
Intravenous iron sucrose reverses anemia-induced cardiac remodeling, prevents myocardial fibrosis, and improves cardiac function by attenuating oxidative/nitrosative stress and inflammation
(Elsevier Ireland, 2016-06)
Background: According to recent clinical trial data, correction of iron deficiency with intravenous (i.v.) iron has favorable outcomes on cardiac function. We evaluated whether i.v. iron treatment of anemic rats has favorable ...
Impact of the length of vitamin D deficiency on cardiac remodeling.
This study was aimed to evaluate the influence of vitamin D (VD) deficiency on cardiac metabolism, morphology, and function. Thus, we investigated the relationship of these changes with the length of the nutrient restriction. ...
Association between echocardiographic structural parameters and body weight in Wistar rats
Background: The association between echocardiographic structural parameters and body weight (BW) during rat development has been poorly addressed. We evaluated echocardiographic variables: left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic ...
Mesenchymal stromal cells improve cardiac function and left ventricular remodeling in a heart transplantation model
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2015-11)
Background: Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is an inevitable consequence of organ transplantation and a major determinant of patient and graft survival in heart transplantation. Bone marrow–mesenchymal stromal cell ...
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 ...
Cardiac remodeling in a rat model of diet-induced obesity
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-10-01)
The mechanisms by which diet-induced obesity cause remodeling and cardiac dysfunction are still unknown. Interstitial collagen and myocardial ultrastructure are important in the development of left ventricular hypertrophy, ...
New Equation for Prediction of Reverse Remodeling after Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
Objectives: To integrate data from two-dimensional echocardiography (2D ECHO), three-dimensional echocardiography (3D ECHO), and tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) for prediction of left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling (LVRR) ...
