Prolonged Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress in Hypertrophic and Failing Heart After Aortic Constriction: Possible Contribution of Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress to Cardiac Myocyte Apoptosis
Background—The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is recognized as an organelle that participates in folding secretory and membrane proteins. The ER responds to stress by upregulating ER chaperones, butExpand

Favourable clinical outcome in patients with cardiogenic shock due to fulminant myocarditis supported by percutaneous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
AIMS The clinical outcome of severe acute myocarditis patients with cardiogenic shock who require circulatory support devices is not well known. We studied the survival and clinical courses ofExpand

Late aortic insufficiency related to poor prognosis during left ventricular assist device support.
BACKGROUND Management of native aortic insufficiency (AI) during left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support is challenging. We investigated the occurrence of de novo AI during long-term LVADExpand

Bone marrow is a source of regenerated cardiomyocytes in doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor enhances migration of bone marrow cells and attenuates
BACKGROUND It has been reported previously that granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF) injection improves infarcted heart function, but the mechanism remains unclear. In this study we sought toExpand

G-CSF promotes bone marrow cells to migrate into infarcted mice heart, and differentiate into cardiomyocytes.
A recent study showed that granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) treatment improved the infarcted cardiac function. Although mobilized stem cells may affect it, the mechanism is unclear. InExpand
