Diastolic dysfunction is common and may increase the risk of cardiovascular complications. This study investigated the hypothesis that, in patients with isolated left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, higher grade diastolic dysfunction was associated with greater risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) after surgery.

Imbalance in ventricular repolarization parameters are related to increased risk of severe arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. There is limited research regarding markers to detect patients at risk i...
Introduction: Gout is associated closely with an increased risk of cardiovascular (CV) events including heart failure. The aim: Improvement of treating patients with gout and essential hypertension (E...
Although obesity-associated metabolic abnormalities (insulin resistance-IR) may not play as marked a role in determining left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction (DD) as hypertension, the impact of...
Post-systolic shortening (PSS) does not contribute to the ejection of blood and may inhibit diastolic filling. We determined normal values of PSS in healthy subjects and investigated associations with...
Intra-ventricular blood flow dynamics is considered as an important component of left ventricular (LV) function assessment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the LV diastolic function in chron...
This study evaluated the association between HMGB1 and diastolic dysfunction in hypertensive patients. HMGB1 level were tested in all patients, and diastolic function determined by echocar...
Objectives: To study the prognostic value of the evolution of diastolic function according to fluid balance in patients admitted to the ICU with a diagnosis of septic shock, in terms of mo...
The project aims to investigate the effect of a regular exercise for 6 months on diastolic parameters in patients who present with shortness of breath and who have evidence of early diasto...
Impairment of relaxation, the early phase of ventricular diastole is the first stage of heart diastolic dysfunction. Left ventricular diastolic function can be determined noninvasively by...
Hypertensive patients are at increased risk of developing LV hypertrophy and myocardial fibrosis, which cause diastolic dysfunction. Because the activation of rennin-angiotensin-aldosteron...
A condition of markedly elevated BLOOD PRESSURE with DIASTOLIC PRESSURE usually greater than 120 mm Hg. Malignant hypertension is characterized by widespread vascular damage, PAPILLEDEMA, retinopathy, HYPERTENSIVE ENCEPHALOPATHY, and renal dysfunction.
A tumor of both low- and high-grade malignancy. The low-grade grow slowly, appear in any age group, and are readily cured by excision. The high-grade behave aggressively, widely infiltrate the salivary gland and produce lymph node and distant metastases. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas account for about 21% of the malignant tumors of the parotid gland and 10% of the sublingual gland. They are the most common malignant tumor of the parotid.

Blood pressure levels that are between normotension and hypertension. Individuals with prehypertension are at a higher risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. Generally, prehypertension is defined as SYSTOLIC PRESSURE of 131-139 mm Hg and/or DIASTOLIC PRESSURE of 81-89 when the optimal is 120/80 mm Hg. For diabetics and other metabolism diseases the prehypertension is around 110-129/70-79 mm Hg.
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
A malignant epithelial tumor of glandular tissue, especially the salivary glands, characterized by acini with mucus-producing cells and by the presence of malignant squamous elements. Most mucoepidermoid tumors are low-grade lesions readily cured by adequate excision. They may appear in any age group. They grow slowly. If high-grade, they behave aggressively, widely infiltrating the salivary gland and producing lymph node and distant metastases.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
