Diastolic Dysfunction in Morbidly Obese Patients Undergo Bariatric Surgery

Morbidly obese patients are at risk for diastolic cardiac dysfunction, which can lead to adverse event, such as, diastolic heart failure postoperatively. Preoperative screening by transtho...

Assessment of Diastolic Function in High Risk Patients Undergoing Major Vascular Surgery

Diastolic Stress Test: Invasive and Noninvasive Testing.

Diastolic dysfunction is a key factor in the pathogenesis of heart failure. Around 50% of cases of heart failure, the hemodynamic correlate of which is increased left ventricular filling pressure, are...

Effect of diastolic dysfunction on intraventricular velocity behavior in early diastole by flow mapping.

Intraventricular velocity distribution reflects left ventricular (LV) diastolic function and can be measured non-invasively by flow mapping technologies. We designed our study to compare intraventricu...

Diastolic dysfunction is associated with an increased risk of postcontrast acute kidney injury.

Computed tomography (CT) is an important imaging modality in diagnosing a variety of disorders. Although systolic heart failure is a well-known risk factor for postcontrast acute kidney injury (PC-AKI...

Comprehensive Assessment of Changes in Left Ventricular Diastolic Function With Contemporary Breast Cancer Therapy.

This study determined the effects of doxorubicin and/or trastuzumab on diastolic function and the relationship between diastolic function and systolic dysfunction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Ultrasonic recording of the size, motion, and composition of the heart and surrounding tissues. The standard approach is transthoracic.

The inability in the male to have a PENILE ERECTION due to psychological or organ dysfunction.

General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

A rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by the deposition of copper in the BRAIN; LIVER; CORNEA; and other organs. It is caused by defects in the ATP7B gene encoding copper-transporting ATPase 2 (EC, also known as the Wilson disease protein. The overload of copper inevitably leads to progressive liver and neurological dysfunction such as LIVER CIRRHOSIS; TREMOR; ATAXIA and intellectual deterioration. Hepatic dysfunction may precede neurologic dysfunction by several years.
