Evaluation of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Patients with Strain Echocardiography
Objectives: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is characterized by several metabolic abnormalities that may lead to insulin resistance, diabetes, and atherosclerosis which are associated with chronic inflammatory processes ...
Determinants of New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation in Patients Receiving CRT Mechanistic Insights From Speckle Tracking Imaging
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the factors associated with the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) and to examine the impact of these factors for long-term outcome after cardiac resynchronization ...
Is there a relationship between resistin levels and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure?
Objective: Resistin, a cysteine-rich peptide, is associated with atherosclerosis and diabetes. Resistin levels increase corresponding to coronary artery disease (CAD) and heart failure severity. Since resistin level tends ...
T1 Mapping by Cardiac Magnetic Resonance and Multidimensional Speckle-Tracking Strain by Echocardiography for the Detection of Acute Cellular Rejection in Cardiac Allograft Recipients
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that echocardiographic strain imaging, by tracking subtle alterations in myocardial function, and cardiac magnetic resonance T1 mapping, by quantifying tissue ...
Subclinical myocardial dysfunction in liver transplant candidates determined using speckle-tracking imaging
Objective: There are various cardiovascular abnormalities in end-stage liver disease (ESLD). In these patients, left ventricular (LV) systolic function is normal at rest but deteriorates during stress. This deterioration ...
Longitudinal Strain and Strain Rate for Estimating Left Ventricular Filling Pressure in Heart Transplant Recipients
Traditional parameters have limited value to estimate left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) in orthotropic heart transplant (OHT) recipients. We hypothesized that global longitudinal strain (GLS), diastolic, and systolic ...
