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: ...
Retinoic acid supplementation attenuates ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction in rats
The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of retinoic acid in experimental postinfarction myocardial remodeling. Wistar rats were subjected to myocardial infarction (MI) and treated with retinoic acid (RA), 0.3 ...
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. ...
Energy Metabolism in Cardiac Remodeling and Heart Failure
Fatty acids are the main substrates used by mitochondria to provide myocardial energy under normal conditions. During heart remodeling, however, the fuel preference switches to glucose. In the earlier stages of cardiac ...
