Baroreflex Sensitivity Impairment Is Associated With Cardiac Diastolic Dysfunction in Rats
(CHURCHILL LIVINGSTONE INC MEDICAL PUBLISHERS, 2011)
Background: Studies have shown that the autonomic dysfunction accompanied by impaired baroreflex sensitivity was associated with higher mortality. However, the influence of decreased baroreflex sensitivity on cardiac ...
Cardiac remodeling induced by 13-cis retinoic acid treatment in acne patients
Background: Currently, 13-cis-retinoic acid (13-cis-RA) is the most effective therapy for acne. Isotretinoin, a first-generation synthetic 13-cis-RA compound, is associated with numerous adverse effects. To investigate the ...
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 ...
Efeito da sinvastatina sobre a disfunção diastolica isolada em pacientes com hipertensão arterial sistemica sem hipertrofia cardiaca e sem doença arterial coronarianaEffect of simvastatin on diastolic disfunction in hypertensive subjects without evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy or coronary heart disease
GAIN-OF-FUNCTION MUTATION IN THE KCNMB1 POTASSIUM CHANNEL SUBUNIT IS ASSOCIATED WITH LOW PREVALENCE OF DIASTOLIC HYPERTENSION
(AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR CLINICAL INVESTIGATION, 2004)
Exercise training prevents diastolic dysfunction induced by metabolic syndrome in rats
(HOSPITAL CLINICAS, UNIV SAO PAULOSÃO PAULO, 2012-07)
OBJECTIVE: High fructose consumption contributes to the incidence of metabolic syndrome and, consequently, to cardiovascular outcomes. We investigated whether exercise training prevents high fructose diet-induced metabolic ...

(Elsevier B.V., 2006-11-10)
Background: the associations between autonomic function and biventricular function in patients with the indeterminate form of Chagas disease remains to be elucidated.Methods: In 42 asymptornatic patients and 19 healthy ...
Diastolic function and functional capacity after a single session of continuous positive airway pressure in patients with compensated heart failure
(Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Hospital das Clínicas, 2014-01-01)
OBJECTIVE: The effects of acute continuous positive airway pressure therapy on left ventricular diastolic function and functional capacity in patients with compensated systolic heart failure remain unclear.METHODS: This ...
Influence of aging, tidal volume, and respiratory rate on Doppler echocardiographic indices of diastolic function in normal male subjects: A quantitative evaluation
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2008)
Background: Although the influence of respiration on ventricular filling, as evaluated by Doppler technique, and the evaluation of diastolic velocities of mitral valve annulus (MVA), as measured by Doppler tissue imaging ...
