Our aim was to evaluate the acute effects of transcatheter edge-to-edge mitral valve repair using the MitraClip device on mitral valve geometry in patients with functional mitral regurgitation (FMR).
The transcatheter mitral valve interventions (TRAMI) registry was established in order to assess safety and efficacy of catheter-based mitral valve interventional techniques in Germany, and prospectiv...
Although major advances have been made in radiation techniques, concerns still exist about the treatment-related acute and long-term side effects. This issue is most notable in the pediatric populatio...
During a pulmonary hypertensive crisis, the marked increase in pulmonary vascular resistance can result in acute right ventricular failure and death. Currently, there are no therapeutic guidelines for...
The safety, feasibility, and hemodynamic effects of mild hypothermia (MH) induced by transnasal cooling were studied in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). MH is a common therapy following ...
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 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.
The purpose of the Cardiovascular Outcomes Assessment of the MitraClip Percutaneous Therapy for Heart Failure Patients with Functional Mitral Regurgitation (COAPT) Trial is to confirm the ...
Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is a common finding in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). The presence of a relevant FMR (gra...
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.
