Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) has been associated with oxidative stress, although not with the protein thiolation index (PTI). This study explored the potential use of PTI as a biomarker of oxidative stress in patients with LVH.
This article was published in the following journal.

Myocardial performance index (MPI), demonstrates both systolic and diastolic functions of the left ventricle. Presystolic wave (PSW) is frequently detected on Doppler examination of the left ventricul...
Plasma N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and R wave in aVL lead (RaVL) have been associated with mortality in hypertension. The aim of the current study was to compare the prognosti...
Kisspeptins are a family of neuropeptides that are critical for the puberty initiation and female fertility. Plasma or serum kisspeptin is mainly derived from the placenta during pregnancy and plasma ...
There are some controversial reports related to the pro-arrhythmic or anti-arrhythmic potential of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and little is known about the relationship between ventricula...
Considering the potential deleterious effects of right ventricular (RV) pacing, the hypothesis of this study is that isolated left ventricular (LV) pacing through the coronary sinus is safe and may pr...
Cardiac complications occur in 78% of patients with Fabry disease and are mainly characterized by a high frequency of left ventricular hypertrophy resulting from an accumulation of GL3 in ...
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. ...
- To evaluate Blood Pressure (BP) reduction to the targeted values (BP ≤ 140/90 mm Hg in non-diabetic patients, and ≤ 130/80 mm Hg in diabetic patients). - To emphasize and t...
This is a prospective, multi-center, single-group, target-value clinical study. The primary safety end points are major adverse cardiovascular events (MACCE) 30 days after device implantat...
Conventional right ventricular apical pacing may result in asynchronous ventricular contraction with delayed left ventricular activation, interventricular motion abnormalities, and worseni...
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).
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.
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.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
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...
