    Contrary to what the name implies, the left atrial appendage is increasingly becoming an organ of clinical importance. Its role in the pathogenesis of thromboembolism is now well established. Enlargement of the appendage due to haemodynamic disturbances or anatomic weakness increases this risk,...

    Background: Intraventricular pressure gradients have been described between the base and the apex of the left ventricle during early diastolic ventricular filling, as well as, their increase after systolic and diastolic function improvement. Although, systolic gradients have also been observed,...

    The influences of cardiac loading conditions and left ventricular performance on pulmonary venous flow are poorly understood. The authors studied the effects of volume loading on the pattern of pulmonary venous flow in normal and ischemic hearts. Thirteen anesthetized dogs were equipped with a...

    We analyzed heartbeat-intervals with our own program of detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) to quantify the irregularity of the heartbeat. The present analysis revealed that normal healthy subjects have the scaling exponent of 1.0, and ischemic heart disease pushes the scaling exponent up to...

    Objective: To evaluate whether cTnT elevations occurring after ICD discharges have an impact on survival. Design: Prospective observational study. Patients: 174 patients (mean (SD) age 68 (12) years, 32 women) who received spontaneous (n = 66) or induced (n = 108) ICD discharges were studied....
