  1. 1. Nitrates and Left Ventricular Dysfunction

    University dissertation from Erik Tingberg Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Erik Tingberg; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lipid peroxidation; malondialdehyde; peptide; brain natriuretic peptide; left ventricular dysfunction; nitrates; acute myocardial infarction; heart failure; atrial natriuretic; diuretics; echocardiography; haemodynamic measurements; neurohumoral activation; diastolic dysfunction; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Kardiovaskulära systemet; oxidative stress; isoprostanes;

    Abstract : Use of beta-blockers and inhibitors of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) is established practice in the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). Clinical studies also suggest beneficial long-term effects of nitrates in CHF. READ MORE

  2. 2. Echocardiographic measurements at Takotsubo cardiomyopathy transient left ventricular dysfunction

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Micael Waldenborg; Kent Emilsson; Ole Fröbert; Per Lindqvist; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; takotsubo; annulus motion; cardiac autonomic function; broken heart; diastolic; ventricular mass; concentric wall motion; Medicine; Medicin; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a disease characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and typical wall motion abnormalities in apical parts, without obvious signs of coronary influence. Due to its elusive natural cause and the lack of clarified pathology, further studies are needed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Echocardiography/Doppler for the evaluation of coronary artery function, left ventricular function and the relationship between early diastolic and systolic function

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Reidar Winter; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary flow reserve; contrast echocardiography; early diastolic downward velocity; flow propagation velocity; colour M-mode; diastolic function; Echocardiography; Doppler; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system;

    Abstract : Two specific areas of development in echocardiography are assessment of left ventricular (LV) diastolic function and myocardial ischemia. This thesis describes echocardiographic methodology in these two areas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiac abnormalities in chronic kidney disease

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Pavlos Kashioulis; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiovascular; chronic kidney disease; diastolic dysfunction;

    Abstract : Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global health problem associated with increased risk of mortality and development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality even before the development of ESRD. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quantification of 4D Left Ventricular Blood Flow in Health and Disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jonatan Eriksson; Tino Ebbers; Carl-Johan Carlhäll; Gianni Pedrizzetti; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; relative pressure; 4D flow; quantification; turbulent kinetic energy; dilated cardiomyopathy; magnetic resonance imaging; physiology; cardiac function; diastolic dysfunction;

    Abstract : The main function of the heart is to pump blood throughout the cardiovascular system by generating pressure differences created through volume changes. Although the main purpose of the heart and vessels is to lead the flowing blood throughout the body, clinical assessments of cardiac function are usually based on morphology, approximating the flow features by viewing the motion of the myocardium and vessels.
