BACKGROUND AND DESIGN In this study we set out to determine the effects of long-term physical training on hemorheological, laboratory parameters, exercise tolerability, psychological factors in cardiac patients participating in an ambulatory rehabilitation program. METHODS Before physical training, patients were examined by echocardiography, tested on(More)
We tested the hypothesis that myocardial contractile protein phosphorylation and the Ca(2+) sensitivity of force production are dysregulated in a porcine model of pacing-induced heart failure (HF). The level of protein kinase A (PKA)-dependent cardiac troponin I (TnI) phosphorylation was lower in the myocardium surrounding the pacing electrode (pacing site)(More)
The aim of the case-control study was to explore the effect of coagulation factor XIII (FXIII) B subunit (FXIII-B) polymorphisms on the risk of coronary artery disease, and on FXIII levels. In the study, 687 patients admitted for coronary angiography to investigate suspected coronary artery disease and 994 individuals representing the Hungarian population(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previously, 30 untreated hypertensive patients were investigated by transcranial Doppler (TCD) monitoring during physical exercise, and changes of hemodynamic parameters were compared with those of age matched healthy subjects. After 3-year antihypertensive (AHT) treatment, these hypertensives were investigated again. The aim of this(More)
