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 ...
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 ...
Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) expert consensus for CMR imaging endpoints in clinical research: part I - analytical validation and clinical qualification.
Cardiovascular disease remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Changing natural history of the disease due to improved care of acute conditions and ageing population necessitates new strategies to ...
Ineffective and prolonged apical contraction is associated with chest pain and ischaemia in apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
OBJECTIVES: To investigate the hypothesis that persistence of apical contraction into diastole is linked to reduced myocardial perfusion and chest pain. BACKGROUND: Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is defined by ...
