Arrhythmogenic ventricular cardiomyopathy is considered to be a primary cardiomyopathy. Over the last few decades, although being a relatively rare disease with its prevalence 1:2000 - 1:5000, there were numerous studies performed with the aim to elucidate the underlaying causes, pathogenesis, diagnostical aspects and possible treatment options of the disease. Arrhythmogenic ventricular cardiomyopathy is genetically conditioned disease where proteins of the cell-cell junctions are involved. Mutations of the myocardial intercalated dics proteins, mainly desmosomal proteins (e...

Costello syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by failure to thrive, short stature, mental motor retardation, characteristic facial features, macrocephaly, a short neck, loose soft skin with deep palmar and plantar creases, and hypertrichosis. Cardiac involvement is seen in almost two thirds of patients, and is a determinant for the prognosis of Costello syndrome. The most common cardiac anomalies are pulmonary stenosis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect and arrhytmia...

INTRODUCTION: Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is the main expression of uremic cardiomyopathy. Alteration of the diastolic function is frequently associated with LVH, indicating future cardiovascular events. Recent studies suggest that the Tissue Doppler (TID) of the mitral annulus obtains parameters of diastolic function that are not influenced by other factors, unlike what occurs with the pulsed Doppler (PD), and that the relationship between the velocity of the proto-diastolic waves of both techniques (E/E') would be the most important datum to diagnose a diastolic malfunction...

The combination of dilatation and systolic dysfunction of the left or both ventricles from idiopathic or specific origin define dilated cardiomyopathy (DC). It is an important cause of cardiac morbidity through congestive heart failure (CHF) or arrhythmias. Prevalence studies estimate a rate of left ventricular systolic dysfunction of 2% to 3% or more, and of 1.5% of CHF among the general population. Genetic studies on familial DC have identified at least 5 genetic locus. In addition, the role of virus, genetic abnormalities, immunologic responses and increased myocardial apoptosis are factors recognized factors that play a significant role in the pathogenesis of idiopathic DC...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
