Lung Deflation and Cardiovascular Structure and Function in COPD: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
(American Thoracic Society, 2015-11-09)
RATIONALE: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients develop increased cardiovascular morbidity with structural alterations. OBJECTIVES: This double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study investigated the effect ...
LB01.07: ELEVATED BLOOD PRESSURE WITHOUT HYPERTROPHY RAISES LEFT VENTRICULAR EJECTION FRACTION.
OBJECTIVE: Hypertension remains a major cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality worldwide. Persistent blood pressure (BP) elevation may lead to left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and heart failure. We wanted to ...
Evaluation of splenic switch off in a tertiary imaging centre: validation and assessment of utility.
Aims: Adenosine can induce splenic vasoconstriction (splenic switch-off, SSO). In this study, we aim to evaluate the utility of identifying a lack of SSO for detecting false-negative adenosine stress perfusion cardiac ...
Myocardial deformation assessment using cardiovascular magnetic resonance-feature tracking technique.
BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is an important modality that allows the assessment of regional myocardial function by measuring myocardial deformation parameters, such as strain and strain rate ...
