Utility of a new left ventricular asynchrony index as a predictor of reverse remodelling after cardiac resynchronization therapy.
AIMS The majority of tissue Doppler indexes proposed to predict left ventricular (LV) reverse remodelling in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) reflects LV asynchrony as assessed in ejectionExpand

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy:
Aim: Gender related differences in epidemiology, treatment, and prognosis of heart failure (HF) have been reported. We examined the sex influence in patients treated with cardiac resynchronizationExpand

Tissue Doppler and strain imaging: a new tool for early detection of cardiac amyloidosis
Using traditional echocardiography, the diagnosis of cardiac amyloidosis (CA) is often only possible in advanced stage when recommended therapies may have adverse effects. The aim of our study was toExpand

Left ventricular support device for cardiogenic shock during myocardial infarction due to stent thrombosis: a single centre experience.
BACKGROUND Stent thrombosis (ST) is a new, rare, cause of STEMI. Few data are available about incidence and clinical impact of shock complicating acute myocardial infarction due to ST (st-STEMI). Expand

Echo/Doppler-derived time intervals are able to predict left ventricular reverse remodeling after cardiac resynchronization therapy
Aim We evaluated the predictive value of echo/Doppler derived indices, which reflect the duration of the isovolumic phases of the cardiac cycle, in identifying cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)Expand

[Percutaneous rheolytic thrombectomy with AngioJet for pulmonary embolism: methods and results in the experience of a high-volume center].
BACKGROUND Pulmonary embolism is a common disease with significant mortality. Anticoagulant and thrombolytic therapies are a mainstay in the management of acute pulmonary embolism, especially withExpand

Effects of cardiac resynchronization therapy on the mechanisms underlying functional mitral regurgitation in congestive heart failure.
AIMS Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) improvement induced by cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has been related to left ventricular (LV) remodeling reversal and contractility enhancement.Expand

Temporal variation in optimal atrioventricular and interventricular delay during cardiac resynchronization therapy.
BACKGROUND Tailored atrioventricular delay (AVd) and interventricular delay (VVd) combination improves hemodynamics in patients treated with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). Whether tailoredExpand
