Aldosterone is not Involved in the Ventricular Remodeling Process Induced by Tobacco Smoke Exposure
Background/Aims: Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade with a mineralocorticoid-receptor antagonist has not yet been studied in exposure to tobacco smoke (TS) models. Thus, this study investigated the role of ...
Metalloproteinases-2 and -9 predict left ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction
Background: The role of serum metalloproteinases (MMP) after myocardial infarction (MI) is unknown. Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of serum MMP-2 and -9 as predictors of ventricular remodeling ...
Exposure time and ventricular remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure in rats
(Int Scientific Literature, Inc, 2008-03-01)
Background: We investigated the effects of length of exposure to tobacco smoke on the cardiac remodeling process induced by exposure to cigarette smoke in rats.Material/Methods: Rats were separated into 4 groups: nonsmoking ...
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: ...
Efectos de la administración de betabloqueante en la remodelación ventricular inducida por el tabaquismo en ratas
Background: The role of the adrenergic system on ventricular remodeling induced by cigarette smoking is unknown. Objective: To investigate the influence of propranolol on ventricular remodeling induced by exposure to tobacco ...
