Patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy may continue to experience persistent chest pain and shortness of breath despite conventional medical therapy and/or revascularization. The purpose o...
It has been known that liraglutide reduces infarct size, improved left ventricular function, reduce myocardial stunning, and play a protective role in myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injur...
This study evaluates mechanisms of arrhythmogenicity in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, in comparison to patients with well-understood arrhythmogenic substrate (ischemic cardiomyopathy), as w...
Ventricular Tachycardia ablation in ischemic cardiomyopathy patients is required procedure in cases when anti-arrhythmic drugs failed. The concern is if adjunctive continuation amiodarone ...
The study is testing the hypothesis, that the application of low dose erythropoetin beta (35 I.E./kg BW/week) for 6 months following successful coronary revascularization by PCI improves l...
Aim of the study was to investigate whether late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) at cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) predict reverse remodeling (RR) in non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (NIDCM).
To investigate the expression and mechanism of plasma microRNA-21 in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM).
To study capabilities of perfusion-metabolic myocardial scintigraphy for prediction of the left ventricular (LV) reverse remodeling after comprehensive surgical treatment of ischemic cardiomyopathy (I...
Feature-Tracking Global Longitudinal Strain Predicts Death in a Multicenter Population of Patients with Ischemic and Nonischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy Incremental to Ejection Fraction and Late Gadolinium Enhancement.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) feature-tracking-derived global longitudinal strain (GLS) in a large multicenter population of patients w...
Current ventricular tachycardia (VT) management in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) includes optimal medical therapy, ICDs device therapy, and antiarrhythmic medications. Data about outcome...
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).
The application of repeated, brief periods of vascular occlusion at the onset of REPERFUSION to reduce REPERFUSION INJURY that follows a prolonged ischemic event. The techniques are similar to ISCHEMIC PRECONDITIONING but the time of application is after the ischemic event instead of before.
Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

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.
Restoration of blood supply to tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. It is primarily a procedure for treating infarction or other ischemia, by enabling viable ischemic tissue to recover, thus limiting further necrosis. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing REPERFUSION INJURY.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
