The aim of the present PPS3 study is (1) to assess the determinants of the regulation of heart rate and blood pressure variations and carotid properties (under different physiologic stimulations) and (2) to evaluate the respective contribution of heart rate, blood pressure variations and carotid properties to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality including sudden death during 10 years at least in healthy considered subjects.
Overall, 10 000 men and women will be recruited during two years for an extensive clinical examination including a 2h holter ECG, a carotid doppler echo tracking, a step test, as well as blood and DNA collections. Thereafter, the cardiovascular morbidity and mortality of the participants will be followed up for 10 years at least.

To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Excel V system for the treatment of lower extremity spider veins on the ankles.
The overall objective of the study is to determine whether speckle tracking echocardiography presents additional prognostic value to the routine assessment (clinical and echocardiographic)...
The study is designed to validate the use of speckle-tracking echocardiography to measure tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion as a measurement of right ventricular function during t...
The present observational prospective study aims at identifying echocardiographic parameters (based on the Left Bundle Branch Block (LBBB)-like contraction of the left ventricle (LV) ascer...
The goal of this study is to increase the efficiency of exposure in virtual reality (VR). Based on the EMDR research the investigators would like to show that the implementation of eye mo...
2D speckle tracking echocardiography (2DSTE) was proved to be accurate for the assessment of the RV function. However, normal values for RV strain refer mostly to 3- or 6-segment models, excluding the...
Exercise stress echocardiography is a widely used modality for the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with coronary artery disease. During the last decade, speckle tracking imaging has been used incr...
It is challenging to detect small nontransmural infarcts visually or automatically. As it is important to detect myocardial infarction (MI) at early stages, we tested the hypothesis that small nontran...
To evaluate the effect of hyperuricemia (HU) on subclinical changes of left ventricle (LV) function and structure in patients with hypertension (HT) using three-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardio...
By tracking echocardiography images more accurately and stably, we can better assess myocardial functions. In this paper, we propose a new tracking method with deformable Regions of Interest (ROIs) ai...
Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

A distribution in which a variable is distributed like the sum of the squares of any given independent random variable, each of which has a normal distribution with mean of zero and variance of one. The chi-square test is a statistical test based on comparison of a test statistic to a chi-square distribution. The oldest of these tests are used to detect whether two or more population distributions differ from one another.
The maximum exposure to a biologically active physical or chemical agent that is allowed during an 8-hour period (a workday) in a population of workers, or during a 24-hour period in the general population, which does not appear to cause appreciable harm, whether immediate or delayed for any period, in the target population.
