Cardiac remodeling in a rat model of diet-induced obesity
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-10-01)
The mechanisms by which diet-induced obesity cause remodeling and cardiac dysfunction are still unknown. Interstitial collagen and myocardial ultrastructure are important in the development of left ventricular hypertrophy, ...
INSULIN-RESISTANCE AND MYOCARDIAL HYPERTROPHY IN THE ATTENUATED REDUCTION IN MEAN ARTERIAL-PRESSURE AFTER A GLUCOSE-LOAD IN HYPERTENSIVE PATIENTS
(Assoc Bras Divulg CientificaSao PauloBrasil, 1995)
Cardiac MRI for Detection of Unrecognized Myocardial Infarction in Patients With End-Stage Renal Disease: Comparison With ECG and Scintigraphy
(AMER ROENTGEN RAY SOC, 2009)
OBJECTIVE. The purposes of this study were to use the myocardial delayed enhancement technique of cardiac MRI to investigate the frequency of unrecognized myocardial infarction (MI) in patients with end-stage renal disease, ...
Mechanisms Involved in the Beneficial Effects of Spironolactone after Myocardial Infarction
Introduction:Our objective was to analyze the effect of spironolactone on cardiac remodeling after experimental myocardial infarction (MI), assessed by matricellular proteins levels, cardiac collagen amount and distribution, ...
Differential effects of variation in athletes training on myocardial morphophysiological adaptation in men: Focus on I-123-MIBG assessed myocardial sympathetic activity
High intensity systematic physical training leads to myocardial morphophysiological adaptations. The goal of this study was to investigate if differences in training were correlated with differences in cardiac sympathetic ...
Quantification of Extracellular Matrix Expansion by CMR in Infiltrative Heart Disease
(Elsevier Science IncNew YorkEUA, 2012)
Comparison of MB fraction of creatine kinase mass and troponin I serum levels with necropsy findings in acute myocardial infarction
(EXCERPTA MEDICA INC-ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2008)
Serum levels of troponin and heart-related fraction of creatine kinase (CK-MB) mass are used as diagnostic and prognostic criteria in myocardial infarction, but the relation between those levels and-the necropsy-determined ...
Cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase and mechanical heart function in ventricular hypertrophy induced by pressure overload or secondary to myocardial infarction
(Academic Press, 1996)
The role of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) and systolic function during the development of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) still remain uncertain. The aim of this work is to study PKA activity and mechanical ...
Autonomic impairment after myocardial infarction: Role in cardiac remodelling and mortality
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2010)
P>1. Impairmant of baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) has been implicated in the reduction of heart rate variability (HRV) and in the increased risk of death after myocardial infarction (MI). In the present study, we investigated ...
