The aim of this cohort study was to evaluate the value of echocardiographic multilayer strain analysis in the identification of arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (AC) in its earliest stages in which sudden cardiac death can occurs. Twenty seven asymptomatic relatives of AC probands (mean age 39.6 ± 19.5 years, 37 % male) with a desmosomal pathogenic mutation(More)
OBJECTIVE Palliative care (PC) in heart failure (HF) is beneficial and recommended in international HF guidelines. However, there is a perception that PC is underutilised in HF in the UK. This exploratory study aims to investigate, from a PC perspective, this perceived underutilisation and identify problems with current practice that may impact on the(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional cardiopulmonary exercise testing can objectively measure exercise intolerance but cannot provide comprehensive evaluation of physiology. This requires additional assessment of cardiac output and arteriovenous oxygen content difference. We developed magnetic resonance (MR)-augmented cardiopulmonary exercise testing to achieve this(More)
Background Athletes demonstrate major adaptative changes in their hearts with high level of exercise. However the long term consequences of endurance training were not completely understood. We aimed to to explore the effect of long term endurance exercise on cardiac morphology and function, and diffuse fibrosis, and assess the significance of any(More)
Background Children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a significantly increased cardiovascular (CV) risk. The reasons for this remain unclear. However, abnormalities of systolic and diastolic myocardial function, the vascular system and autonomic dysfunction have been implicated. Conventional investigations like resting echocardiography offer limited(More)
