    There is growing evidence to support an important role of inflammation in the underlying pathophysiology of heart failure (HF). Indeed, inflammatory cytokine levels are well recognized to be increased in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and appear to have prognostic implications....

    Objective Deficiency of anabolic sex steroids is common in heart failure (HF). The pathophysiological implications of this phenomenon, however, have not been fully elucidated. This clinical study investigated the significance of low serum androgen levels in HF. Design Prospective cohort study....

  • Management of the no-reflow phenomenon. Margetić, Eduard // Cardiologia Croatica;Mar/Apr2013, Vol. 8 Issue 3/4, p119 

    Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) is the preferred reperfusion strategy for treating acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The main goals are to restore epicardial infarct-related artery (IRA) patency and achieve microvascular reperfusion as early as possible,...

    Diabetic cardiomyopathy has been defined as 'a distinct entity characterized by the presence of abnormal myocardial performance or structure in the absence of epicardial coronary artery disease, hypertension, and significant valvular disease'. The diagnosis stems from the detection of myocardial...

    The morbidity and mortality of coronary heart disease and of heart failure remain unacceptably high despite major advances in their management. The main focus of treatment has been revascularisation for ischaemic heart disease and neuro-humoral modification for heart failure. There is an urgent...

  • In situ single photon confocal imaging of cardiomyocyte T-tubule system from Langendorff-perfused hearts. Biyi Chen; Caimei Zhang; Ang Guo; Long-Sheng Song // Frontiers in Physiology;May2015, Vol. 6, p1 

    Transverse tubules (T-tubules) are orderly invaginations of the sarcolemma in mammalian cardiomyocytes. The integrity of T-tubule architecture is critical for cardiac excitation-contraction coupling function. T-tubule remodeling is recognized as a key player in cardiac dysfunction. Early studies...

    Objectives: The signal transduction pathways mediating the progression to failure have been intensively studied in a variety of in vitro and in vivo animal models. Recently, acute activation of the Janus kinases (JAKs) and signal transducers and activators of transcription (STATs) has...

  • Autophagy in Cardiac Plasticity and Disease. Hill, Joseph A. // Pediatric Cardiology;Mar2011, Vol. 32 Issue 3, p282 

    The heart is a highly plastic organ. In response to the physiological stress of normal life, as well as the pathological stress of disease, the myocardium manifests robust and rapid changes in mass. In the context of disease-associated stress, this myocardial remodeling response can culminate in...

    We describe an atypical presentation of stress-induced cardiomyopathy - Takotsubo cardiomyopathy - in a 16-month-old boy previously diagnosed with cyclic vomiting and episodic hypertension. He developed features of cardiac failure and his echocardiogram showed left ventricular wall motion...
