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-controlExpand

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 childrenExpand

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 beenExpand

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 patientsExpand

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 conditionsExpand

Novel association patterns of cardiac remodeling markers in patients with essential hypertension and atrial fibrillation
BackgroundMatrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) are essential for the cardiac extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. We investigated differences in serum levels ofExpand
