Pulmonary embolism as a cause of death in patients with heart disease: an autopsy study.
TLDR
PE was a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with HD who underwent autopsies and the incidence of massive PE was high in children, higher in patients < 10 years old. Expand
Combination therapy with sildenafil and bosentan reverts severe pulmonary hypertension and allows heart transplantation: case report.
TLDR
Combinations of an oral pulmonary vasodilator with diverse action mechanisms may represent an alternative for patients with irreversible pulmonary hypertension who do not respond to monotherapy. Expand
An experimental study of survival after two hours of normothermic hepatic ischemia.
TLDR
The findings corroborate and extend those of recent clinical studies in which a similar tolerance of the human liver to prolonged normotherthermic ischemia is reported, thus questioning the necessity for deliberate hypothermia in operations involving the liver. Expand
Differences in right ventricular remodeling secondary to pressure overload in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
TLDR
A postmortem morphometric analysis of the left ventricles and RVs of patients with IPAH or EMS who died from RV failure showed that the RV in both groups of patients responded to pressure overload with significant hypertrophy as evidenced by increased RV wall thickness. Expand
[Ventricular conduction disorder in presence of dead myocardium].
TLDR
An intermediate degree RBBB, associated to antero-septal necrosis, is characterized by the reduction of the electrocardiographic signs of the said block and the presence of Q waves in the right precordial and transitional leads. Expand
Impairment by cyclosporin A of reperfusion-induced arrhythmias.
TLDR
The results indicate that cyclosporin, when given before coronary occlusion, at a dose of 20 mg/kg, effectively protects against the high incidence of arrhythmias and the fall in blood pressure induced by reperfusion. Expand
Sexual hormones: Effects on cardiac and mitochondrial activity after ischemia–reperfusion in adult rats. Gender difference
TLDR
Hormonal influences on the heart at functional and mitochondrial levels are shown and Alterations in cardiac function were worst in intact males and castration females as compared with those found in intact females and castrated males. Expand
In hyperthyroid rats octylguanidine protects the heart from reperfusion damage
TLDR
It is concluded that octylguanidine inhibits the hypersensitivity of the hyperthyroid myocardium to undergo reperfusion damage due to its inhibitory action on the permeability transition pore. Expand
Churg-Strauss syndrome and myocardial perfusion SPECT imaging
[On the diagnostic value of indirect electrocadiographic signs of left posterolateral basal infarction].
TLDR
The left basal posterolateral infarct does not give pathological Q waves nor ventricular QS complexes in the low lateral leads V5 and V6, which speaks for a no absolute but relative diagnostic value of the indirect electrocardiographic signs of altered ventricular depolarization and repolarization in the left postersolateral basal regions of the left ventricle.
