The choice of inodilator drug in the acute management of patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) having right ventricular (RV) failure remains unsettled and challenging. Comprehensive experimental evaluations may provide further insight and fundamental translational research clues to support inodilator selection and clinical trial design. Our aim was to compare acute dose-response hemodynamic effects of inodilators dobutamine (DOB), milrinone (MIL), and levosimendan (LEV) in chronic experimental PH. Seven-week-old male Wistar rats were randomly injected with 60 mg·kg(-1) monocrotaline (MCT) or vehicle (Ctrl, n = 7) and underwent systemic and pulmonary artery (PA) pressure and RV pressure-volume (PV) hemodynamic evaluation under halogenate anesthesia 24 to 30 days after injection...

Retrocaval ureter is a rare anomaly in which the ureter passes behind the inferior vena cava due to abnormal embryogenesis. Very few cases have been reported from Africa. Although the anomaly is congenital, patients become symptomatic in the third or fourth decade of life. We reviewed the records of four patients with the diagnosis of retrocaval ureter and managed in our centre between January 2010 and December 2016. Three patients presented with recurrent colicky right flank pain while one was asymptomatic...

Donation after circulatory death donors (DCD) have the potential to increase the number of heart transplants. The DCD hearts undergo an extended period of warm ischemia, which mandates the use of machine perfusion preservation if they are to be successfully recovered for transplantation. Because the minimum coronary artery flow needed to meet the basal oxygen demand (DCRIT) of a DCD heart during machine perfusion preservation is critical and yet unknown, we studied this in a DCD rat heart model. Adult male rats were anesthetized, intubated, heparinized, and paralyzed with vecuronium...

OBJECTIVE: Liver dysfunction due to heart failure (HF) is known as congestive hepatopathy. It has recently been reported that liver stiffness assessed by transient elastography reflects increased central venous pressure. The Fibrosis-4 (FIB4) index (age (years) × aspartate aminotransferase (IU/L)/platelet count (10(9)/L) × square root of alanine aminotransferase (IU/L)) is expected to be useful for evaluating liver stiffness in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. We aimed to investigate the impact of the FIB4 index on HF prognosis, with consideration for liver fibrosis markers and underlying cardiac function...

The ultrasonographic evaluation of inferior vena cava (IVC) parameters, particularly the collapsibility index (CI), has been widely used in the assessment of the fluid responsiveness (FR) of critically ill patients, but the results are conflicting. In this study, we aimed to investigate the early change in CI after increased intravascular volume (IVV) induced by passive leg raising (PLR). A total of 145 healthy volunteers over 18 years old were enrolled between September and December in 2015. Before and 2 min after PLR, the maximum and minimum IVC diameter (maxIVC and minIVC) were measured by color Doppler ultrasonography, and the difference in CI (ΔCI) was calculated...

For identification of potentially surgically curable primary aldosteronism, guidelines recommend use of adrenal vein sampling (AVS) that requires selective catheterization of both adrenal veins as verified by using the cortisol-derived selectivity index. Unfortunately, bilaterally selective studies are not obtained under unstimulated conditions in a proportion of the cases ranging between 15% and 50% depending on the cutoff used. We therefore investigated whether 17-α-hydroxyprogesterone and androstenedione, which showed a higher step-up between adrenal vein and inferior vena cava blood than cortisol, can ascertain selectivity when cortisol failed to do so...
