- Effect of myocardial revascularisation on left ventricular systolic function in patients with and without viable myocardium: should non-viable segments be revascularised? Stipac, Alja Vlahović; Stanković, Ivan; Vidaković, Radosav; Putniković, Biljana; Ilic, Ivan; Milicic, Biljana; Neškovic, Aleksandar N. // Heart;Dec2013, Vol. 99 Issue 23, p1749
Objective: To assess the effect of surgical revascularisation on left ventricular (LV) systolic function in patients with viable and non-viable dysfunctional LV segments determined by low dose dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE). Design: Prospective observational cohort study. Setting:...
- Cardiac magnetic resonance determinants of functional mitral regurgitation in ischemic and non ischemic left ventricular dysfunction. Fernández-Golfín, Covadonga; De Agustin, Alberto; Manzano, M.; Bustos, Ana; Sánchez, Tibisay; Pérez de Isla, Leopoldo; Fuentes, Manuel; Macaya, Carlos; Zamorano, José // International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging;Apr2011, Vol. 27 Issue 4, p539
Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is frequent in left ventricular (LV) dilatation/dysfunction. Echocardiographic predictors of FMR are known. However, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) predictors of FMR have not been fully addressed. The aim of the study was to evaluate CMR mitral valve (MV)...
- Role of positron emission tomography using fluorine-18 fluoro-2-deoxyglucose in predicting improvement in left ventricular function in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Yokoyama, Ikuo; Momomura, Shin-ichi; Ohtake, Tohru; Yonekura, Katsunori; Inoue, Yusuke; Kobayakawa, Naoshi; Aoyagi, Teruhiko; Sugiura, Seiryo; Nishikawa, Jun-ichi; Sasaki, Yasuhito; Omata, Masao // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine;1998, Vol. 25 Issue 7, p736
Abstract. Improvement in left ventricular (LV) function in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) by medical treatment has been suggested. Thus, it is important to evaluate which patients will respond to medical therapy. Positron emission tomography (PET) with fluorine-18...

Discusses causes for the occurrence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Relationship between increased blood pressure and LVH; Description of determinants for the development of LVH; Increase in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality with LVH.
- Delayed recovery in peripartum cardiomyopathy: an indication for long-term follow-up and sustained therapy. Biteker, Murat; İlhan, Erkan; Biteker, Gul; Duman, Dursun; Bozkurt, Biykem // European Journal of Heart Failure;Aug2012, Vol. 14 Issue 8, p895
Aims Persistence of left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction after 6 months of diagnosis is believed to be a marker of an irreversible cardiomyopathy in peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM). We sought to determine the length of time required for recovery of LV systolic function (LVSF) in patients...
