β-carotene attenuates the paradoxical effect of tobacco smoke on the mortality of rats after experimental myocardial infarction
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of exposure to tobacco smoke (ETS) in rats that were or were not supplemented with dietary β-carotene (BC), on ventricular remodeling and survival after myocardial ...
β-Carotene supplementation results in adverse ventricular remodeling after acute myocardial infarction
Objective: We studied the effects of β-carotene (BC) on ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction. Methods: Myocardial infarction was induced in Wistar rats that were then treated with a BC diet (500 mg/kg of diet ...
Cardiovascular remodeling induced by passive smoking
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of death in many developed countries. The major risk factors for CHD are smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol levels, and lack of physical activity. ...
Influence of gender on right ventricle adaptation to endurance exercise: an ultrasound two-dimensional speckle-tracking stress study
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
© 2017, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Background: Characteristic right ventricle (RV) remodelling is related to endurance exercise in male athletes (MAs), but data in female athletes (FAs) are scarce. Our aim was to ...
