BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) shape and function serves as an indicator in several types of heart disease such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD). However, there is no in-depth knowledge of RV motion, even in healthy subjects. The aim of our study was to provide a quantitative analysis of normal variations in RV wall motion in healthy(More)
Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma is an aggressive tumour in adulthood, in which cardiac troponin T seems to be a tumour marker and course parameter. We present the clinical course of a young man suffering from this rare disease and the development of troponin T during therapy. Noninvasive cardiac imaging was used to exclude cardiac involvement, myocardial(More)
measurements by 2.5 leads to values close to the RVEF by volumetry. Furthermore, CMR-TAPSE correlates well with TAPSE determined using transthoracic echocardiography [3].

beta-Adrenoceptor blockade by propranolol (4 X 10(-6)M) was without effect on the overflow of endogenous noradrenaline from the isolated heart of the rat induced by stimulation of sympathetic nerves for 1 min at 1 and at 4 Hz. The increase in heart rate in response to such stimulation was abolished by propranolol treatment. alpha 2-Adrenoceptor blockade by(More)
1 Stimulation of postganglionic cardiac sympathetic nerves produced a stimulation frequency-dependent overflow of endogenous noradrenaline from the otherwise isolated rat heart. 2 Such nerve stimulation also produced increases in heart rate. There was significant correlation between heart rate increases and corresponding noradrenaline concentrations in the(More)
