  1. 1. The clinical value of total isovolumic time

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Gani Bajraktari; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart failure; cardiac resynchronization therapy; predictors; echocardiography; total isovolumic time; six-minute walk test; left ventricular dyssynchrony;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to evaluate the use of Doppler echocardiography markers ofglobal dyssynchrony [total isovolumic time (t-IVT)] in the following 6 studies: 1) Its prognostic role in predicting cardiac events in patients undergoing CABG surgery,compared with conventional global systolic and diastolic measurements. 2) Its additional value in predicting six minute walk test (6-MWT) in patients with leftventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) <45%.

  2. 2. Electromechanical effects and optimization modalities of cardiac resynchronization therapy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Cinzia Valzania; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac resynchronization therapy; coronary blood flow; dyssynchrony; echocardiography; exercise; heart failure; hemodynamics; intracardiac electrogram; intracardiac impedance; optimization;

    Abstract : Background and aims Heart failure is a major health care problem, with high morbidity and mortality rates. In recent years, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has become an established additive treatment for patients with advanced heart failure, left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, and wide QRS complex.

  3. 3. Quantitative echocardiographic methods for patients with acute coronary syndrome

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Carl Westholm; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tissue Doppler;

    Abstract : Background: The aim of this thesis was to evaluate two diagnostic and two prognostic quantitative echocardiographic methods for patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Methods:
Velocity tracking (VeT) presents the longitudinal tissue Doppler velocities of the left ventricle (LV) as a bull’s eye plot giving an easy three dimensional understanding of both the global and regional function of the LV in regard to longitudinal velocities, systolic as well as diastolic.

  4. 4. Evaluation of Myocardial Function in Chronic Kidney Disease A Colour Tissue Velocity Imaging Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Shirley Hayashi; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac; Kidney; Tissue; Velocity; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), overhydration, uremic toxins and left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony are factors that may lead to LV dysfunction and conduction abnormalities and thus contribute to the high cardiac mortality. Colour tissue velocity imaging (TVI) allows a detailed quantitative analysis of cardiac function in CKD patients, opening new possibilities to evaluate longitudinal myocardial motion, rapid isovolumetric events, LV filling pressure and LV synchronicity.

  5. 5. Assessment of Ventricular Function in Normal and Failing Hearts Using 4D Flow CMR

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jakub Zajac; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Heart failure is a common disorder and a major cause of illness and death in the population, creating an enormous health-care burden. It is a complex condition, representing the end-point of many cardiovascular diseases. READ MORE
