Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is common in patients with advanced heart failure and impaired left ventricular function. The study aim was to examine functional and hemodynamic effects at three...
The goal directed hemodynamic therapy is an approach focused on the use of cardiac output and related parameters as end-points for fluids and drugs to optimize tissue perfusion and oxygen delivery. Pr...
Impact of Preprocedural Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction on 1-Year Outcomes After MitraClip Implantation (from the ACCESS-EU Phase I, a Prospective, Multicenter, Nonrandomized Postapproval Study of the MitraClip Therapy in Europe).
This report describes the 12-month outcomes of the a prospective, multicenter, nonrandomized post-approval study of the MitraClip therapy in Europe (ACCESS-EU postapproval study of MitraClip therapy) ...
The aim of this study was to directly compare the hemodynamic effects of 2 contemporary percutaneous mechanical circulatory support devices in a porcine model of acute myocardial infarction.
The goal of MitraClip therapy is to achieve mitral regurgitation reduction without iatrogenic creation of clinically significant MS. In some series, up to 35% of patients are left with mild MS. There ...
Aim of this prospective trial is to assess the hemodynamic effects of a MitraClip procedure caused iatrogenic arterial septal defect (iASD) and the functional changes after interventional ...
The study is comparing MitraClip® to Surgical therapy in high and intermediate risk patients, who should be older than 75 years, and shall evaluate safety and efficacy of MitraClip® vs. ...
The purpose of this pilot study is to use cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and echocardiography to define the anatomic and functional remodeling that results from MitraClip implantation. A...
The primary objective of the registry is to investigate and follow all patients treated with the MitraClip System in Belgium. This information is intended to contribute to decision making ...
The aim of the present study is to influence the central and obstructive sleep apnoea in patients with severe mitral insufficiency by an interventional MitraClip examination to evaluate.
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.
