Left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy is a physiological or pathological response of LV myocardium to increased cardiac load. We aimed at investigating and comparing hemodynamic alterations in well-established rat models of physiological hypertrophy (PhyH) and pathological hypertrophy (PaH) by using LV pressure-volume (P-V) analysis. PhyH and PaH were induced(More)
BACKGROUND The role of physical exercise in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases has been well described, however, elevations in cardionecrotic biomarkers after prolonged exercise (i.e. ultramarathon running) were observed. We aimed at understanding the biochemical, molecular biological, structural and functional alterations in the heart(More)
Long-term exercise training is associated with characteristic structural and functional changes of the myocardium, termed athlete's heart. Several research groups investigated exercise training-induced left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy in animal models; however, only sporadic data exist about detailed hemodynamics. We aimed to provide functional(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus (DM) leads to the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy, which is associated with altered nitric oxide (NO)--soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC)--cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) signalling. Cardioprotective effects of elevated intracellular cGMP-levels have been described in different heart diseases. In the current study we(More)
Pathologic myocardial hypertrophy develops when the heart is chronically pressure-overloaded. Elevated intracellular cGMP-levels have been reported to prevent the development of pathologic myocardial hypertrophy, therefore we investigated the effects of chronic activation of the cGMP producing enzyme, soluble guanylate cyclase by Cinaciguat in a rat model(More)
INTRODUCTION Nationwide medical databases started to record observations in the 90s. A Hungarian vascular registry was set up in 2002, which processes data of carotid, aneurysm and lower extremity arterial operations. The Hungarian Society for Angiology and Vascular Surgery decided to analyse the data each year. In this article we show the results of the(More)
INTRODUCTION The Endologix developed an aortoiliac stent graft system that is different than the conventional implantation technique (Nellix, EVAS-endovascular aneurysm sealing system). The first implantation in Hungary has been performed in the beginning of 2016 at Heart and Vascular Center. METHODS Nellix: two endobags surrounding ballon-expandable(More)
INTRODUCTION The Hungarian Society for Vascular Surgery decided to analyse and publish regularly the data of the Hungarian Vascular Registry. AIM The aim of the authors was to present the outcome of infrarenal aortic aneurysm surgeries performed during the past five years. METHOD Prospectively collected multicentric data obtained from the Hungarian(More)
