Name: Current heart failure reports
All types of heart failure are associated with reduced cardiac output and/or increased left atrial (LA) pressure. In diastolic heart failure (heart failure with preserved ejection fraction [HFpEF]), t...
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a progressive irreversible disease associated with contractile dysfunction and heart failure. During dilated cardiomyopathy, elevated diastolic wall strains trigger mechanotr...
Mitochondrial dysfunction characterized by impaired bioenergetics, oxidative stress and aldehydic load is a hallmark of heart failure. Recently, different research groups have provided evidence that s...
Although the enhancement of early-diastolic intra-left ventricular pressure difference (IVPD) during exercise is considered to maintain exercise capacity, little is known about their relationship in h...
Regional heterogeneities in contraction contribute to heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). We aimed to determine whether regional changes in myocardial relaxation similarly contribute...
Patients of the University Hospital Göttingen with echocardiographic signs for diastolic heart failure and indication for right heart catheterisation will undergo additional diagnostic te...
The principle aim is to determine the efficacy of eplerenone in patients with diastolic heart failure to reverse cardiac remodeling and to improve diastolic function.
Diastolic heart failure is now being recognized as a key form of heart failure in older people. The focus of this research is to study ways to improve and maintain physical activity and f...
Patients with CAD and clinical symptoms of heart failure or patients with suspected heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) will be enrolled. Study drug will be given as co...
To investigate whether the medicines eplerenone or atorvastatin have a favourable effect on diastolic heart failure. Eplerenone is a drug that has been shown to be beneficial in Chronic H...
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.
A selective beta-1-adrenergic partial agonist. Because it is a partial agonist (DRUG PARTIAL AGONISM) it acts like an agonist when sympathetic activity is low and as an antagonist when sympathetic activity is high. It reduces MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA and improves ventricular function in patients with mild to moderate heart failure. In patients with severe heart failure it has been shown to produce benefits in systolic and diastolic function.
Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
