  1. 1. Myocardial metabolism in experimental infarction and heart failure

    Author : Truls Råmunddal; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Myocardial metabolism; Heart failure; Myocardial infarction; Lipotoxic heart disease; Apolipoprotein B; Arrhythmias; Cardiac reserve; Creatine metabolism;

    Abstract : Abstract The heart is an organ heavily dependent on exogenous lipids for the oxidative production of adenosine-triphosphate (ATP) and therefore maintenance of normal cellular energy homeostasis. However, high energy flux organs such as the heart must closely match lipid import and utilization or otherwise lipids will accumulate in the cardiomyocytes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Myocardial creatine metabolism in experimental infarction and heart failure

    Author : Malin Lindbom; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Energy metabolism; Creatine; Congestive heart failure; Myocardial infarction; Ventricular arrhythmias; Cardiac remodeling; apolipoprotein B; Lipid metabolism;

    Abstract : The failing heart is characterized by changes in structure, function and metabolism. All these changes are usually defined as pathologic remodelling. An important part of this negative remodelling process is disturbances in the myocardial energy metabolism. READ MORE

  3. 3. Surgery for aortic stenosis : with special reference to myocardial metabolism, postoperative heart failure and long-term outcome

    Author : Farkas Vánky; Rolf Svedjeholm; Dan Lindblom; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Aortic stenosis; Surgery; Postoperative heart failure; Long-term outcome; Metabolism; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : Postoperative heart failure (PHF) remains a major determinant of the outcome after cardiac surgery. However, characteristics of and risk factors for PHF after valve surgery have received little attention. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiac lipid storage and metabolism following myocardial ischemia

    Author : Christina Drevinge; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Lipid accumulation; Myocardial Ischemia; Lipid droplets; Perilipin2; Perilipin5;

    Abstract : Myocardial ischemia is associated with cellular- and metabolic adjustments within the heart, including accumulation of lipids. Myocardial lipids are stored in cytosolic droplets, consisting of a core of neutral lipids surrounded by a complex surface containing proteins, such as perilipins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Myocardial metabolism and ischemia assessed by microdialysis. Clinical and experimental studies in cardiac surgery

    Author : Vittorio Mantovani; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : microdialysis; cardiac metabolism; myocardial ischemia;

    Abstract : Background: The available methods to study myocardial metabolism and ischemia show considerable limitations when employed during and after cardiac surgery. Microdialysis is a technique for continuous sampling of substances from the interstitium. READ MORE
