This study aimed to investigate the association of metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) and other obesity phenotypes with electrocardiographic (ECG) markers to understand the pathophysiological basis o...
Whether current proposed biomarkers of myocardial fibrosis (BMFs) actually reflect the changes in fibrous characteristics of myocardial tissue remains unclear. The relation between peripheral BMFs and...
Myocardial fibrosis is the excessive deposition of extracellular matrix proteins, including collagens, in the heart. In cardiomyopathies, the formation of interstitial fibrosis and/or replacement fibr...
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is associated with poor prognosis. In our previous study, it has been reported that patients with acute myocardial infarction and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy exhibited wors...
We assessed whether an association exists between myocardial oxygenation and myocardial fibrosis in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), using blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) T2* cardi...
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic cardiomyopathy and remains the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young people and an important cause of heart failure sy...
The presence of scar within heart muscle can act as a substrate for abnormal rhythm problems and lead to the developement of heart failure Clinical significance Correlation with biomarker...
This study will evaluate the prognostic utility of novel ECG markers of electrical instability in patients with cardiomyopathy.
Fibrosis, myocardial deformation and biomarkers in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
Prospective screening study at Odense University Hospital to assess the effect of transient elastography and other serum and imaging markers of liver fibrosis to detect advanced fibrosis (...
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.
A group of diseases in which the dominant feature is the involvement of the CARDIAC MUSCLE itself. Cardiomyopathies are classified according to their predominant pathophysiological features (DILATED CARDIOMYOPATHY; HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY; RESTRICTIVE CARDIOMYOPATHY) or their etiological/pathological factors (CARDIOMYOPATHY, ALCOHOLIC; ENDOCARDIAL FIBROELASTOSIS).
A transient left ventricular apical dysfunction or ballooning accompanied by electrocardiographic (ECG) T wave inversions. This abnormality is associated with high levels of CATECHOLAMINES, either administered or endogenously secreted from tumor or during extreme stress.
A condition characterized by the thickening of the ventricular ENDOCARDIUM and subendocardium (MYOCARDIUM), seen mostly in children and young adults in the TROPICAL CLIMATE. The fibrous tissue extends from the apex toward and often involves the HEART VALVES causing restrictive blood flow into the respective ventricles (CARDIOMYOPATHY, RESTRICTIVE).
An autosomal dominant inherited form of HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY. It results from any of more than 50 mutations involving genes encoding contractile proteins such as VENTRICULAR MYOSINS; cardiac TROPONIN T; ALPHA-TROPOMYOSIN.
