Left Ventricular Diastolic Function in Essential Hypertensive Patients: Influence of Age and Left Ventricular Geometry
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia - SBC, 2002-05-01)
PURPOSE - To evaluate diastolic dysfunction (DD) in essential hypertension and the influence of age and cardiac geometry on this parameter. METHODS - Four hundred sixty essential hypertensive patients (HT) underwent Doppler ...
Influence of different doses of retinoic acid on cardiac remodeling
(Elsevier B.V., 2011-07-01)
Objective: The role of retinoic acid in promoting postnatal heart alterations is still unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the cardiac alterations caused by all-trans- retinoic acid (ATRA) in normal adult ...
Myocardial Remodeling In Hypertension
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUPLONDON, 2015)
Cardiac remodeling induced by smoking: concepts, relevance, and potential mechanisms
(Inflammation & Allergy Drug Targets, 2012)
Cardiac or ventricular remodeling is characterized by molecular, cellular, and interstitial alterations that lead to changes in heart size, mass, geometry and function in response to a given insult. Currently, tobacco smoke ...
Sildenafil vs. Sodium Nitroprusside for the Pulmonary Hypertension Reversibility Test Before Cardiac Transplantation
(ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS CARDIOLOGIARIO DE JANEIRO, 2012-09)
Background: Pulmonary hypertension is associated with a worse prognosis after cardiac transplantation. The pulmonary hypertension reversibility test with sodium nitroprusside (SNP) is associated with a high rate of systemic ...
Computer simulation of platelet activation in a pulsatile ventricular assist device, through finite elements and a simplified geometry
Ventricular assist devices are a technological solution for patients who suffer from cardiac insufficiency and await a transplant. In this work, a new design of an implantable pulsatile blood pump is analyzed in terms of ...
Atrophic Cardiac Remodeling Induced by Taurine Deficiency in Wistar Rats
(Public Library Science, 2012-07-23)
Introduction: Micronutrient deficiency is observed in heart failure patients. Taurine, for example, represents 50% of total free amino acids in the heart, and in vivo studies have linked taurine deficiency with ...
