In Dahl-Iwai rats, salt-sensitive hypertension causes concentric left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) at the age of 11 weeks, which is followed by LV dilatation with global hypokinesis and pulmonary congestion, ie, LV failure (LVF), at 16 to 18 weeks of age. To address the question of whether the cardiac remodeling from LVH to LVF is associated with(More)
Excretion in the urine is an important pathway for the elimination of nifekalant hydrochloride (NIF), a novel class III antiarrhythmic agent. Three patients with renal failure were undergoing hemodialysis and receiving NIF for the prevention of ischemia-induced ventricular tachyarrhythmia. Because NIF is not dialyzed, dose adjustment at relatively low(More)
We introduce an asymmetric slice profile technique, which alters the spatial response of the flow signal in 3D time-of-flight NMR angiography. By gradually increasing the flip angle from the inflow to the outflow portions of the slab, the inflow refreshment effect is distributed over a wide slab thickness. The asymmetric slice profile is simply produced by(More)
