Evaluation of left atrial longitudinal function in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: a tissue Doppler imaging and two-dimensional strain study
Objective: We sought to quantify left atrial longitudinal function by tissue Doppler (TDI) and two-dimensional (2D) strain in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Design: Case-control… Expand
Isolated Left Ventricular Noncompaction: An Unclassified Cardiomyopathy with Severe Prognosis in Adults
Noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy, which appears to represent an arrest in intrauterine endomyocardial morphogenesis. It is diagnosed both in children… Expand
Long‐Term Nonoutflow Septal Versus Apical Right Ventricular Pacing: Relation to Left Ventricular Dyssynchrony

Background: Right ventricular (RV) apical pacing deteriorates left ventricular (LV) function. RV nonoutflow (low) septal pacing may better preserve ventricular performance, but this has not been… Expand
Interleukin-2 serum levels variations in recent onset atrial fibrillation are related with cardioversion outcome.
We evaluated the hypothesis that a relationship exists between inflammation and the outcome of pharmaceutical cardioversion with amiodarone in recent onset atrial fibrillation. We studied 86 patients… Expand

ObjectivesThe aim of this study was to evaluate the longterm follow-up results of percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA) in a large patient cohort.BackgroundPTSMA by alcohol… Expand
Diagnosis and management of myocardial involvement in systemic immune-mediated diseases: a position statement of the European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Myocardial and Pericardial Disease
Systemic immune-mediated diseases (SIDs) include autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases (AD) affecting at least two-organ systems.1 Autoinflammatory diseases refer to a growing family of conditions… Expand
Novel association patterns of cardiac remodeling markers in patients with essential hypertension and atrial fibrillation

- 28 December 2011
BackgroundMatrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) are essential for the cardiac extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. We investigated differences in serum levels of… Expand
A decade of percutaneous septal ablation in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Percutaneous septal ablation has emerged as a less invasive treatment of symptomatic patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). In the past decade, the availability of this… Expand
Alcohol septal ablation for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy: collateral vessel communication between septal branches.
Specific localization, gamma camera imaging, and intracellular trafficking of radiolabelled chimeric anti-G(D3) ganglioside monoclonal antibody KM871 in SK-MEL-28 melanoma xenografts.
The chimeric monoclonal antibody KM871, directed against the G(D3) antigen, is under evaluation for its potential to target melanoma. To facilitate the in vivo evaluation of biodistribution… Expand
