BACKGROUND: Echocardiography is a reliable means for the diagnosis of functional and valvular diseases of the heart in HIV positive and HIV negative patients. The current study was to evaluate echocardiographic abnormalities in HIV positive patients under an antiretroviral therapy (ART) program in Tehran, Imam Khomeini Hospital, Iran. METHODS: This is a descriptive cross-sectional study, conducted among 231 HIV positive patients under ART. All HIV positive patients including 150 men (65%) and 81 women (35%) (mean age of 41 years) were assessed by trans-thoracic echocardiography (TTE) in Imam Khomeini Hospital, over the period from 2013 to 2014...

Left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is characterized by alterations in LV diastolic filling, and is a strong predictor of cardiovascular events and heart failure. Hypertension is the most important risk factor for LVDD in the community and promotes LVDD through several mechanisms, including hemodynamic overload and myocardial ischemia. Associated factors such as age, ethnicity, dietary sodium, obesity, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease also contribute to LVDD in hypertensive individuals...

BACKGROUND: Regular physical exercise determines a progressive increase of the cardiac mass known as adaptive hypertrophy. Up to now, two morphological echocardiographic heart patterns of athletes have been described by Morganroth in 1975: predominant augmentation of wall thickness, and major cavity size in chamber dimensions in the case of prevalent static or dynamic components. The aim of the study was to follow up the impact of physical training on heart morphology and function in a group of elite soccer and rugby players for at least five years...

Carvedilol has established its evidence to improve prognosis and facilitate left ventricular reverse remodeling (LVRR) in heart failure patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and many studies have supported its dose-dependency. However, there are few studies demonstrating the effect of high dose carvedilol in Japan. We enrolled 23 patients with idiopathic non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, in whom LVEF remained 45% or less despite 20 mg/ day of carvedilol therapy for > 3 months. After high dose (40 mg/day) carvedilol therapy for > 3 months, LVEF improved (+9...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal obesity and presence of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) are associated with cardiac abnormalities. Among those, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is the most frequently encountered in clinical practice. Few studies evaluated the reversibility of LVDD by an approach promoting lifestyle modifications in abdominally obese subjects with MetS. METHODS: We assessed the impact of a 1-year lifestyle modification program combining nutritional and physical activity counseling on LVDD and metabolic profile of abdominally obese men with MetS...

OBJECTIVE: Central blood pressure (BP) is reported to associate with target organ damages (TODs) better than brachial BP. However, data regarding the association of TODs with central and brachial BP in the community-dwelling health elderly are scare. We therefore hypothesized that TODs are better associated with central than brachial blood pressure (BP) in the elderly community-based population, with considering all hypertensive TODs, namely left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction (DD), carotid plaque, arteriosclerosis and microalbuminuria...

OBJECTIVE: Both brachial blood pressure (BP) level and its variability (BPV) have significant association with cardiac structure and function. Recent studies indicated that central BP was superior to brachial BP in the association with cardiac abnormities. However, it remains unknown that whether central BPV is better associated with cardiac structure and function. We were, therefore, aimed to investigate and compare central and brachial BPV, in terms of the identification of cardiac abnormities...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) thickness on left ventricular diastolic functions in patients with normal coronary arteries (NCA) proven by angiography. METHODS: We selected study patients who were referred to coronary angiography due to typical chest pain or atypical chest pain with a positive pre-test result for coronary artery disease. After coronary angiography, 85 patients had significant coronary lesion (≥50% stenosis) served as coronary artery disease (CAD) group, 82 patients had non-significant coronary lesion (<50% stenosis) and/or a coronary plaque served as non-significant CAD group and 83 patients had normal coronary arteries served as normal coronary artery (NCA) group...

OBJECTIVES: Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (LVDD) is more common in systemic sclerosis (SSc) compared to the general population. Focal myocardial ischaemia and fibrosis may be important in its pathogenesis. LVDD is associated with increased mortality and little is known about the risk factors. Advanced SSc lung complications may accompany LVDD. METHOD: We conducted a cross-sectional study of 300 SSc outpatients with and without LVDD, seen between May 2012 and May 2014, and performed univariate and multivariate regression analyses to determine clinical factors associated with LVDD...

Determination of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) using in vivo imaging is the cardiac functional parameter most frequently employed in preclinical research. However, there is considerable conflict regarding the effects of anesthetic agents on LVEF. This study aimed at assessing the effects of various anesthetic agents on LVEF in hamsters using transthoracic echocardiography. Twelve female hamsters were submitted to echocardiography imaging separated by 1-week intervals under the following conditions: 1) conscious animals, 2) animals anesthetized with isoflurane (inhaled ISO, 3 L/min), 3) animals anesthetized with thiopental (TP, 50 mg/kg, intraperitoneal), and 4) animals anesthetized with 100 mg/kg ketamine plus 10 mg/kg xylazine injected intramuscularly (K/X)...
