Association Between Ambient Air Pollution and Cardiac Morpho-Functional Phenotypes: Insights From the UK Biobank Population Imaging Study.
Background: Exposure to ambient air pollution is strongly associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Little is known about the influence of air pollutants on cardiac structure and function. We aim ...
Progression of myocardial fibrosis in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: mechanisms and clinical implications.
Aims: Myocardial fibrosis as detected by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is a powerful prognostic marker in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and may be progressive. The precise ...
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 ...
Mitral valve prolapse.
INTRODUCTION: Mitral valve prolapse is a common valve pathology with a spectrum of disease from isolated prolapse to myxomatous, multi-scallop Barlow's disease. The main complications relate to progression of mitral ...
The impact of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) on cardiac structure and function: Insights from the UK Biobank imaging enhancement study.
BACKGROUND: The effect of menopausal hormone therapy (MHT)-previously known as hormone replacement therapy-on cardiovascular health remains unclear and controversial. This cross-sectional study examined the impact of MHT ...
