  1. 1. Effect of valve replacement for aortic stenosis on ventricular function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ying Zhao; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement; echocardiography; speckle tracking; exercise echocardiography; ventricular function; septal radial motion; twist; displacement; strain; strain rate;

    Abstract : Background:Aortic stenosis (AS) is the commonest valve disease in the West. Aortic valve replacement (AVR) remains the only available management for AS and results in improved symptoms and recovery of ventricular functions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Echocardiographic measurements of the heart with focus on the right ventricle

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Karin Loiske; Örebro universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; heart; right ventricle; right ventricular outflow tract 1; isovolumetric relaxation time; maximal early diastolic relaxation velocity; takotsubo cardiomyopathy; long-axis function; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Clinical physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Klinisk fysiologi; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Echocardiography is a well established technique when evaluating the size and function of the heart. One of the most common ways to measure the size of the right ventricle (RV) is to measure the RV outflow tract 1(RVOT1). Several ways to measure RVOT1 are described in the literature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in Northern Sweden with special emphasis on molecular genetics

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Stellan Mörner; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; genetics; autonomic nervous system; familial amyloid polyneuropathy; echocardiography; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Abstract : Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a heterogeneous, often familial disease, characterized by cardiac hypertrophy, predominantly affecting the interventricular septum. To date, no study has systematically analysed the genetic and phenotypic aspects of the disease in a Swedish population. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diastolic left ventricular filling in 50-year-old male and female adults : Evaluation by Doppler echocardiography

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Toomas Kangro; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Arterial distensibility; diastole; Doppler echocardiography; exercise; healthy persons; hypertension; LV filling; menopause; medicin; vård; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Physiology; Klinisk fysiologi;

    Abstract : Left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling abnormalities are seen in many patients with various cardiac disorders. Age is an important determinant of Doppler indices of LV diastolic filling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Insights into the effect of myocardial revascularisation on electrical and mechanical cardiac function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ihab Ramzy Guirguis; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; myocardial infarction; natriuretic peptides; echocardiography; ventricular function; atrial function; surgical revascularisation; speckle tracking echocardiography; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Acute coronary syndrome is known for its effect on cardiac function and can lead to impaired segmental and even global myocardial function. Evidence exists that myocardial revascularisation whether pharmacological, interventional or surgical results in improvement of systolic and diastolic left ventricular (LV) function, particularly that of the long axis which represents the sub-endocardial function, known as the most sensitive layer to ischaemia.
