Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging of myocardial oedema following acute myocardial infarction: Is whole heart coverage necessary?
(BioMed Central, 2016-01-23)
© 2016 Hamshere et al. Background: AAR measurement is useful when assessing the efficacy of reperfusion therapy and novel cardioprotective agents after myocardial infarction. Multi-slice (Typically 10-12) T2-STIR has been ...
In the eye of the storm: T cell behavior in the inflammatory microenvironment.
Coordinated unfolding of innate and adaptive immunity is key to the development of protective immune responses. This functional integration occurs within the inflamed tissue, a microenvironment enriched with factors released ...
Functional assessment of coronary artery disease by cardiac computed tomography.
INTRODUCTION: Rapid technological advances in computed tomography (CT) have allowed CT coronary angiography (CTCA) to be delivered at low radiation dose and high diagnostic accuracy. Due to its high negative predictive ...
Non-invasive strategies for stimulating endogenous repair and regenerative mechanisms in the damaged heart
The adult myocardium, including human, harbours a population of resident multi-potent cardiac stem cells (CSCs), which when stimulated under the right conditions can give rise to new cardiomyocytes and vasculature. Elucidation ...
Diagnosis and Prognosis in Sudden Cardiac Arrest Survivors Without Coronary Artery Disease: Utility of a Clinical Approach Using Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
BACKGROUND: Determining the pathogenesis of sudden cardiac arrest or periarrest without significant coronary artery disease is crucial for management and prognosis. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) can detect ...
Self-assembling peptide hydrogel enables instant epicardial coating of the heart with mesenchymal stromal cells for the treatment of heart failure
Transplantation of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) is an emerging therapy for the treatment of heart failure. However, the delivery method of MSC is currently suboptimal. The use of self-assembling peptide hydrogels, ...
