Influence of lisinopril on cardiac remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure
Background: To investigate the effect of lisinopril on cardiac remodeling induced by smoking. Material/Methods: Rats were allocated into 3 groups: group CON (n=8): control; group CSE (n=8): cigarette smoke exposure; group ...
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 ...
Physical training attenuates cardiac remodeling in rats with supra-aortic stenosis
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that physical training (PT) attenuates cardiac remodeling and the severity of heart failure in rats with aortic stenosis. Wistar male rats were divided in sham (S, n=10), ...
Ação da diacereína no remodelamento ventricular esquerdo após infarto agudo do miocárdio = estudo experimental = The diacerein properties on the left ventricle remodeling after acute myocardial infarction: experimental studyThe diacerein properties on the left ventricle remodeling after acute myocardial infarction : experimental study
Effect of gestational protein restriction on left ventricle hypertrophy and heart angiotensin II signaling pathway in adult offspring rats
Maternal protein restriction may be a risk factor for cardiovascular disorders in adulthood. The RAS (renin-angiotensin-system) plays a pivotal role in cardiac remodeling. Components of the RAS, including angiotensin II ...
Fiber architecture in remodeled myocardium revealed with a quantitative diffusion CMR tractography framework and histological validation
(BIOMED CENTRAL LTDLONDON, 2012)
Background: The study of myofiber reorganization in the remote zone after myocardial infarction has been performed in 2D. Microstructural reorganization in remodeled hearts, however, can only be fully appreciated by ...
Ventricular remodeling and diastolic myocardial dysfunction in rats submitted to protein-calorie malnutrition
(Amer Physiological Soc, 2002-04-01)
The effects of protein-calorie malnutrition (PCM) on heart structure and function are not completely understood. We studied heart morphometric, functional, and biochemical characteristics in undernourished young Wistar ...
