Interventional closure of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is an alternative option to stroke prophylaxis, particularly in multimorbid patients with a high risk of bleeding under oral anticoagulation. ...
Tying the hands behind the back has detrimental effects on sensorimotor perceptual tasks. Here we provide evidence that beta band oscillatory activity in a resting state condition might play a crucial...
Atrial fibrillation increases the risk of cerebrovascular events, being responsible of 15-18% of all strokes. The morphological and functional remodelling of the left atrium caused by atrial fibrillat...
Left ventricular hypertrophy is causally implicated in the high risk of death and heart failure (HF) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Whether the left ventricular mass index (LVMI) adds meani...
Injuries are unanticipated and can be expensive to treat. Patients without sufficient health insurance are at risk for financial strain due to high out-of-pocket healthcare costs relative to their inc...
After obtaining a consent, bed side cardiac ultrasonography will be performed for cases undergoing transesophageal echocardiography to evaluate the correlation between left atrium volume a...
Anthracyclines combined with cyclophosphamide or taxane-containing regimens may cause nail pigmentation which reduces quality of life in breast cancer patients. We conducted this study to ...
Stress is a multiple variable and an inevitable aspect of life. Any change that affects the life of a person is a stressful agent, being possible to widely vary its nature and may be forme...
A pilot, multicentre randomized controlled study of surgical left atrial occlusion (LAA) in 50 patients with atrial fibrillation/flutter undergoing cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonar...
The investigators aimed To analyze effect of modified constraint induced movement therapy on upper extremity functions and quality of life of subacute and chronic phase stroke patients wit...
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).
The hemodynamic and electrophysiological action of the left HEART VENTRICLE. Its measurement is an important aspect of the clinical evaluation of patients with heart disease to determine the effects of the disease on cardiac performance.
A cluster of symptoms that are risk factors for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS. The major components of metabolic syndrome include ABDOMINAL OBESITY; atherogenic DYSLIPIDEMIA; HYPERTENSION; HYPERGLYCEMIA; INSULIN RESISTANCE; a proinflammatory state; and a prothrombotic (THROMBOSIS) state.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.
A cluster of metabolic risk factors for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS. The major components of metabolic syndrome X include excess ABDOMINAL FAT; atherogenic DYSLIPIDEMIA; HYPERTENSION; HYPERGLYCEMIA; INSULIN RESISTANCE; a proinflammatory state; and a prothrombotic (THROMBOSIS) state.
