Background: Altered myocardial perfusion is a common finding in chronic Chagas cardiomyopathy (CCC), but its underlying histologic changes have not been elucidated. We investigated the occurrence of myocardial perfusion defects (MPD) and the correlated regional changes to histology in an experimental model of CCC in hamsters. Methods: Female Syrian hamsters ( n = 34) were infected with 3.5x104 to 105 trypomastigote forms of T. cruzi Y-strain and 6 to 10 months afterwards were submitted to in vivo imaging including: rest 99m Tc-sestamibi SPECT imaging, segmental and global left ventricular (LV) function assessment by using 2D-echocardiogram, and 18 F-FDG PET for evaluation of myocardial viability...

BACKGROUND: Exercise stress echocardiography (SE) is commonly used for diagnosing coronary artery disease (CAD). The use of quantitative echocardiographic measures such as strain imaging is expected to improve the sensitivity of conventional SE which relies on the visual diagnosis of wall-motion abnormalities (WMAs). This study is set to demonstrate the added value of resting and exercise strain analysis to detect underlying microangiopathy and inducible myocardial ischemia during a resting and SE in comparison with the results of coronary computed tomographic angiogram (CCTA)...

BACKGROUND: Simpson biplane method and 3D by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), radionuclide angiography (RNA) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) are the most accepted techniques for left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) assessment. Wall motion score index (WMSI) by TTE is an accepted complement. However, the conversion from WMSI to LVEF is obtained through a regression equation, which may limit its use. In this retrospective study, we aimed to validate a new method to derive LVEF from the wall motion score in 95 patients...

We previously demonstrated an abnormally high right ventricular systolic pressure response to exercise in 50% of adolescents operated on for isolated ventricular septal defect. The present study investigated the prevalence of abnormal right ventricular systolic pressure response in 20 adult (age 30-45 years) patients who underwent surgery for early ventricular septal defect closure and its association with impaired ventricular function, pulmonary function, or exercise capacity. The patients underwent cardiopulmonary tests, including exercise stress echocardiography...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with left heart diseases is the most prevalent cause of PH. The scarcity of studies exploring the pathophysiology and therapies of group II PH resides in the lack of validated small animal models with non-invasive determination of the presence and severity of PH. Heart failure (HF) was induced in mice by coronary artery ligation. Mice developed PH as evidenced by an elevated right ventricular (RV) systolic pressure and RV hypertrophy. Detailed non-invasive echocardiographic analysis on the left and right ventricles showed impaired left ventricular (LV) systolic and diastolic function...

Objectives: The current management of coronary artery disease (CAD) relies on three major therapeutic options, namely medication, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). However, severe CAD that is not indicated for PCI or CABG still bears a poor prognosis due to the lack of effective treatments. In 2006, extracorporeal cardiac shock wave (SW) therapy reported on human for the first time. This treatment resulted in better myocardial perfusion as evaluated by dipyridamole stress thallium scintigraphy, angina symptoms, and exercise tolerance...

Objective The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an inflammation marker that can be used to detect atrial inflammatory changes, which may contribute to a reduced left atrial (LA) function and thrombosis. Our study aimed to determine whether or not the association of NLR with the LA appendage (LAA) function in relation to thrombogenesis differs from the association with the LA body function in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) patients. Methods A total of 183 PAF patients were studied. The LA volume index, mitral flow velocity (A), and mitral annular motion velocity (A') were examined using transthoracic echocardiography...

Hemodialysis is associated with a fall in myocardial perfusion and may induce regional left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction. The pathophysiology of this entity is incompletely understood, and the contribution of ultrafiltration and diffusive dialysis has not been studied. We investigated the effect of isolated ultrafiltration and isovolemic dialysis on myocardial perfusion and LV function. Eight patients (7 male, aged 55 ± 18 yr) underwent 60 min of isolated ultrafiltration and 60 min of isovolemic dialysis in randomized order...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The role of endothelial dysfunction (ED) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is poorly understood. Peripheral arterial tonometry (PAT) allows non-invasive evaluation of ED, but has never been used for this purpose early after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (P-PCI). Our purpose was to analyze the relation between ED assessed by PAT and both the presence of microvascular obstruction (MVO) and infarct extension in STEMI patients...
