MitraClip® therapy is an alternative to conventional surgery. The aim was to characterize the mitral annular geometry pre- and postrepair with the MitraClip® taking into account the regurgitation me...
Mitral regurgitation (MR) is the second most commonly encountered valvular lesion and it has been positively correlated with the subsequent development of heart failure and death. MitraClip therapy is...
To assess outcomes for MitraClip therapy in patients with refractory heart failure (HF) and mitral regurgitation (MR) ≥3+.
The MitraClip device was recently approved by the FDA for the management of severe degenerative mitral regurgitation in patients considered to be high risk for surgical repair or replacement of the mi...
Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is a common clinical condition related to significant mortality. Furthermore, patients with PTE presenting with right heart thrombus show higher mortality due to rapid ...
Aim of the study is the definition of criteria for a standardized assessment of heart function by 3D echocardiographic procedures. Standardized criteria will be defined to assess aortic va...
This is a pilot study to compare the hemodynamic changes that occur during induction with a novel drug combination known as ketofol (propofol and ketamine admixture with that of propofol a...
This is a prospective trial of random distribution, open, parallel group, in which patients with esophagic variceal bleeding will be randomized into two treatment groups, after controlling...
The literature shows that approximately 40% of individuals who receive a cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device for symptomatic congestive heart failure (CHF) do not have a clinica...
The purpose of this randomized controlled study is to compare the effects of different new dialysis on-line monitoring devices on hemodynamic stability during intermittent hemodialysis in ...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
The active metabolite of ENALAPRIL and a potent intravenously administered angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is an effective agent for the treatment of essential hypertension and has beneficial hemodynamic effects in heart failure. The drug produces renal vasodilation with an increase in sodium excretion.
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
The use of hormonal agents with estrogen-like activity in postmenopausal or other estrogen-deficient women to alleviate effects of hormone deficiency, such as vasomotor symptoms, DYSPAREUNIA, and progressive development of OSTEOPOROSIS. This may also include the use of progestational agents in combination therapy.
