Cardiomyopathy involves changes in myocardial ultrastructure and cardiac hypertrophy. Angiotensin II (AngII) has previously been shown to stimulate the expression of IGF-2 and IGF-2R in H9c2 cardiomyoblasts and increase of blood pressure, and cardiac hypertrophy. Estrogen receptors (ERs) exert protective effects, such as anti-hypertrophy in cadiomyocytes. Tanshinone IIA (TSN), a main active ingredient from a Chinese medical herb, Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge (Danshen), was shown to protect cardiomyocytes hypertrophy by different stress signals...

Passive and active chronic cigarette smoking (CS) remains an international epidemic and a key risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) development. CS-induced cardiac damage is divided into two major and interchangeable mechanisms: (1) direct adverse effects on the myocardium causing smoking cardiomyopathy and (2) indirect effects on the myocardium by fueling comorbidities such as atherosclerotic syndromes and hypertension that eventually damage and remodel the heart. To date, our understanding of cardiac remodeling following acute and chronic smoking exposure is not well elucidated...

Longitudinal strain (LS) has been shown to be predictive of outcome in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC). Percent predicted peak oxygen uptake (ppVO2), among other cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) metrics, is a strong predictor of prognosis in HC. However, there has been limited investigation into the combination of LS and CPX metrics. This study sought to determine how LS and parameters of exercise performance contribute to prognosis in HC. One hundred and thirty-one consecutive patients with HC who underwent CPX and stress echocardiography were included...

Broken heart syndrome, also known as takotsubo cardiomyopathy, is a syndrome characterized by a transient regional systolic dysfunction of the left ventricle associated to a psychological stress. We herein describe a case of a 23-year-old female habitual marijuana user who was resuscitated after cardiac arrest and then diagnosed with midventricular stress cardiomyopathy complicated by subendocardial hemorrhage. We discuss this unique pathological finding, the incidence of arrhythmias in this syndrome, and the possible relation with chronic cannabis and tobacco use...

In animals, it is now well established that forces applied at the cell surface are propagated through the cytoskeleton to the nucleus, leading to deformations of the nuclear structure and, potentially, to modification of gene expression. Consistently, altered nuclear mechanics has been related to many genetic disorders, such as muscular dystrophy, cardiomyopathy and progeria. In plants, the integration of mechanical signals in cell and developmental biology has also made great progress. Yet, while the link between cell wall stresses and cytoskeleton is consolidated, such cortical mechanical cues have not been integrated with the nucleoskeleton...

Exercise training is a potent, therapeutic approach in obesity and diabetes that exerts protective effects against development of diabetic cardiomyopathy and ischemic-injury. Acute increases in circulating fatty acids (FAs) during an ischemic insult can challenge the heart, as high FA-load is considered to have adverse cardiac effects. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that exercise-induced cardiac effects in diet-induced obese mice are abrogated by an acute high FA-load. Diet-induced obese mice were fed a high-fat diet (HFD) for 20 weeks...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also described as apical ballooning syndrome/stress-induced cardiomyopathy, imitates acute coronary syndrome and is usually related to a massive physiological or emotional stressor. We describe perhaps the first reported case to the best of our knowledge of a 55-year-old Caucasian woman who presented with congestive heart failure after having a regadenoson cardiac stress test a few hours prior to presentation to the hospital. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed reduced heart function...

Diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is characterized by cardiac remodeling and impaired diastolic function that may lead to heart failure. The aim of this study was to evaluate oxidative stress, inflammatory cells, and fibrosis in both subendocardial (SEN) and interstitial (INT) areas of the myocardium. Male Wistar rats were allocated to 2 groups of 9 animals, a control (CT) group and streptozotocin-induced diabetes (DM). After 8 weeks, echocardiography morphometry, protein expression, and confocal microscopy in SEN and INT areas of the left ventricle (LV) were performed...

Diabetic heart pathology has a serious social impact due to high prevalence worldwide and significant mortality/invalidation of diabetic patients suffered from cardiomyopathy. The pathogenesis of diabetic and diabetes-related cardiomyopathy is associated with progressive loss and impairment of cardiac function due to adverse effects of metabolic, prooxidant, proinflammatory, and pro-apoptotic stress factors. In the adult heart, the transcriptional factor forkhead box-1 (FOXO-1) is involved in maintaining cardiomyocytes in the homeostatic state and induction of their adaptation to metabolic and pro-oxidant stress stimuli...

Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is an uncommon complication of pregnancy. Early case reports identified overlap between familial dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and PPCM, although the degree of overlap is largely unknown. Other evidence supporting a contribution from gene mutations in PPCM includes familial occurrence, genome-wide association studies, variable prevalence among different regions and ethnicities, and more recent investigations of panels of genes for mutations among women with PPCM. Murine models implicate the role of altered metabolism and increased free radical stress to the heart during pregnancy, which seems to be involved in the pathogenesis of this condition...

Diabetic cardiomyopathy is characterised in its early stages by diastolic relaxation abnormalities and later by clinical heart failure in the absence of dyslipidaemia, hypertension and coronary artery disease. Insulin resistance, hyperinsulinaemia and hyperglycaemia are each independent risk factors for the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy. The pathophysiological factors in diabetes that drive the development of cardiomyopathy include systemic metabolic disorders, inappropriate activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, subcellular component abnormalities, oxidative stress, inflammation and dysfunctional immune modulation...

Neurocardiology is an emerging specialty that addresses the interaction between the brain and the heart, that is, the effects of cardiac injury on the brain and the effects of brain injury on the heart. This review article focuses on cardiac dysfunction in the setting of stroke such as ischemic stroke, brain hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage. The majority of post-stroke deaths are attributed to neurological damage, and cardiovascular complications are the second leading cause of post-stroke mortality...

Midventricular Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is a relatively rare variant of stress induced cardiomyopathy, wherein there is akinesis of only the mid-ventricular segment with or without hyperkinesis of apical and basal ventricular segments. The ECG findings of TC typically do not include ST segment elevation in V1-V2 and are unlikely to be associated with reciprocal changes in inferior leads. The presence of these changes argues strongly in favor of anterior wall STEMI. In our patient, the ECG had changes strongly suggestive of STEMI, however had normal coronaries on cardiac catheterization...

Oxidative stress contributes to the pathogenesis of propionic acidemia (PA), a life threatening disease caused by the deficiency of propionyl CoA-carboxylase, in the catabolic pathway of branched-chain amino acids, odd-number chain fatty acids and cholesterol. Patients develop multisystemic complications including seizures, extrapyramidal symptoms, basal ganglia deterioration, pancreatitis and cardiomyopathy. The accumulation of toxic metabolites results in mitochondrial dysfunction, increased reactive oxygen species and oxidative damage, all of which have been documented in patients' samples and in a hypomorphic mouse model...

The potential protective effect of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) on type 2 diabetes-induced heart injury was investigated. A rat model of diabetes was achieved by injection of nicotinamide (100mg/kg, i.p), 20min before the administration of streptozotocin (55mg/kg, i.p.). After confirmation of diabetes, EGCG (2mg/kg, p.o.) was administrated on alternate days for one month. Treatment of diabetic rats with EGCG showed a remarkable reduction in glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, HOMA-IR and lipid profile levels with an elevation in insulin levels, indicating its antihyperglycemic and antidyslipidemic actions...

Recent evidence shows that resveratrol (RSV) may ameliorate high-glucose-induced cardiac oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction and myocardial fibrosis in diabetes. However, the mechanisms by which RSV regu¬lates mitochondrial function in diabetic cardiomyopathy have not been fully elucidated. Mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to cardiac dysfunction in diabetic patients, which is associated with dysregulation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator-1α (PGC-1α). In this study we examined whether resveratrol alleviated cardiac dysfunction in diabetes by improving mitochondrial function via SIRT1-mediated PGC-1α deacetylation...

Myocardial atrophy is a wasting of cardiac muscle due to hemodynamic unloading. Doxorubicin is a highly effective anticancer agent but also induces myocardial atrophy through a largely unknown mechanism. Here, we demonstrate that inhibiting transient receptor potential canonical 3 (TRPC3) channels abolishes doxorubicin-induced myocardial atrophy in mice. Doxorubicin increased production of ROS in rodent cardiomyocytes through hypoxic stress-mediated upregulation of NADPH oxidase 2 (Nox2), which formed a stable complex with TRPC3...

Among children with the most severe presentation of Marfan syndrome (MFS), an inherited disorder of connective tissue caused by a deficiency of extracellular fibrillin-1, heart failure is the leading cause of death. Here, we show that, while MFS mice (Fbn1C1039G/+ mice) typically have normal cardiac function, pressure overload (PO) induces an acute and severe dilated cardiomyopathy in association with fibrosis and myocyte enlargement. Failing MFS hearts show high expression of TGF-β ligands, with increased TGF-β signaling in both nonmyocytes and myocytes; pathologic ERK activation is restricted to the nonmyocyte compartment...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate utility of Doppler echocardiography in the assessment of left ventricular (LV) mid-cavity obstructive (LVMCO) hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). BACKGROUND: LVMCO is a relatively under-diagnosed complication of HCM and may occur alone or in combination with LV outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO). Identifying and quantifying LVMCO and differentiating it from LVOTO has important implications for patient management. We aimed to assess diagnostic performance of Doppler echocardiography in the assessment of suspected LV obstruction...
