DIASTOLIC INTERVALS IN CARDIOMYOPATHY AND ABNORMAL THYROID STATES: ALTERATIONS IN ISOVOLUMIC RELAXATION TIME AND RAPID FILLING TIME OF DEPRESSED AND ENHANCED MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTILITY
- A case of transient left ventricular apical ballooning syndrome in a child: clinical features and imaging findings. Lee, So; Lee, Se; Choi, Jong; Choi, Sang; Chun, Eun; Choi, Jung // International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging;Dec2010, Vol. 26, p345
Transient left ventricular apical ballooning syndrome (TLVABS) is an acute cardiac disease that is characterized by transient left ventricular systolic dysfunction involving the apical region. The symptoms and electrocardiographic changes of TLVABS mimic those observed in acute myocardial...
- Mechanical Versus Electrical Dissynchronism in Patients with Heart Failure. Emőke, Baricz; Zs, Gyalai; E., Carașca // Acta Medica Marisiensis;Aug2011, Vol. 57 Issue 4, p279
Background: Despite the existence of significant correlation between the mechanical and electric dissynchronism, it is widely known that these two types of dissynchronisms are quite different and there are a number of reasons why mechanical dyssynchronism might be an important variable to...
- The ECG Quiz: "Zebra!". Ali, Fathi I. // Ibnosina Journal of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences;May2010, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p139
A quiz concerning electrocardiography (ECG) is presented.
- The Likely Diagnosis? Grauer, Ken // Internal Medicine Alert;12/15/2009 Supplement, p184
The article presents the electrocardiogram's (ECG's) interpretation of a 60-year-old man with a history of dilated cardiomyopathy.
- History Is Everything. Grauer, Ken // Internal Medicine Alert;2/15/2011 Supplement, p24
The February 15, 2011 issue of the journal "ECG Review," is presented which presents an interpretation for an electrocardiogram (ECG) obtained from a patient presented to the emergency department (ED) and suspected with multichamber enlargement and cardiomyopathy.
- A Cryptic Dialysis Tracing. Grauer, Ken // Internal Medicine Alert;11/15/2007, Vol. 29 Issue 21, p168
The article presents an interpretation of the 12-lead electrocardiography (ECG) and lead II rhythm strip obtained from a middle-aged dialysis patient with a dilated cardiomyopathy.
- Subclinical Hypothyroidism and Lipid Abnormalities in Older women Attending a Vascular Disease Prevention Clinic: Effect of Thyroid Replacement Therapy. Ganotakis, Emmanouil S.; Mandalaki, Kiriaki; Tampakaki, Maria; Malliaraki, Niki; Mandalakis, Emmanouil; Vrentzos, George; Melissas, John; Castanas, Elias // Angiology;Sep/Oct2003, Vol. 54 Issue 5, p569
The authors evaluated the frequency and type of lipid disorders associated with subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) in older women referred to their university vascular disease prevention clinic. They also assessed the results of thyroid replacement therapy. Fasting serum lipid profiles and thyroid...
- Relation of ventricular-vascular coupling to exercise capacity in ischemic cardiomyopathy: a cardiac multi-modality imaging study. Wong, Raymond C.; Dumont, Carlos A.; Austin, Bethany A.; Kwon, Deborah H.; Flamm, Scott D.; Thomas, James D.; Starling, Randall C.; Desai, Milind Y. // International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging;Feb2010, Vol. 26 Issue 2, p151
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between noninvasive measurements of ventricular-vascular coupling (VVC) with exercise tolerance, and compared the value of VVC versus other traditional determinants of exercise capacity in this population. 43 patients with ischemic CMP...
- Ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm associated with noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium. Murat Unlu; Ozcan Ozeke; Muammer Kara; Sait Yesillik // European Journal of Echocardiography;Mar2008, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p311
Rupture of a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare, but life-threatening cardiac abnormality that requires surgical correction when diagnosed, and is frequently associated with other congenital defects, particularly with ventricular septal defect, aortic valve regurgitation, and bicuspid aortic...
