The aim of this study was to investigate whether percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) improves left ventricular function.
The left atrium (LA) modulates left ventricular filling pressure and is a strong prognosticator in heart failure. Although anthracycline exposure may lead to impaired left ventricular (LV) function, t...
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is standard of care in heart failure (HF), however this technique is associated with a non-responder rate of 30%. Multipole pacing (MPP) with a quadripolar lead...
In Marfan syndrome early impairment of left ventricular systolic function has been reported. Our aim was to evaluate the left ventricular systolic function in young adults with Marfanoid habitus (MH) ...
Anemia is now considered as an important contributing factor to the deterioration of chronic heart failure. The present study aimed to assess the effects of intravenous iron therapy on clinical condit...
Conventional right ventricular apical pacing may result in asynchronous ventricular contraction with delayed left ventricular activation, interventricular motion abnormalities, and worseni...
Usually, "heart failure" refers to myocardial insufficiency of the left ventricle. However, in patients with congenital heart defects, often predominantly the right ventricle is affected. ...
This is a prospective, open label, single-center study, in kidney transplant recipients with stable renal function for 12 and 120 months after transplantation, that are in use use of calci...
Rationale: Randomized trials could not yet establish favourable outcomes of CTO PCI on hard endpoints such as ejection fraction or mortality, when compared to optimal medical therapy. Howe...
Patients presenting with STEMI and late revascularization can suffer from severe left ventricular dysfunction. Midterm and longterm mortality can be determined by the risk of fatal ventric...
Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.
A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.
Enlargement of the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart. This increase in ventricular mass is attributed to sustained abnormal pressure or volume loads and is a contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
