The researchers found that the change in log2-N terminal pro-b-type natriuretic peptide concentration was associated with changes in LVEF
, LVEDVI, LVESVI, LAVI, and E/e' ratio.
'We thank the clinical team for their excellent work in providing the first data on this important application.' The study included 26 patients and found no significant difference between the end-diastolic (LVED) and end-systolic (LVES) ventricular volumes for the left ventricle and LVEF
between conventional 2D ultrasound using the VMS+ system and contrast-enhanced ultrasound.
The major randomized cardiovascular outcome trials that showed lower risks of heart failure hospitalization and all-cause mortality in type 2 diabetic patients on an SGLT2 inhibitor, such as EMPA-REG OUTCOME for empagliflozin (Jardiance) and CANVAS for canagliflozin (Invokana), didn't include information on baseline LVEF
. So until now it has been unclear whether the beneficial effects of the SGLT2 inhibitors preventing heart failure hospitalization vary depending upon LVEF
, explained Dr.
We prospectively studied patients that underwent primary PCI within 12 hours of the onset of symptoms, had normal LVEF
([greater than or equal to]50%) at admission, had only single-vessel coronary disease, and underwent complete and successful revascularization (thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) III flow and myocardial blush grade (MBG) III) during primary PCI.
SIMPSON method was used to gain LVEDV, LVESV, LVEF
and other parameters according to the principle of counting-volumetric method and the count of end-systole and end diastole of cardiac cycle.
Another resembling study comparing SPECT and echocardiography with MRI showed good overall relationships between left-ventricular volumes and LVEF
in 21 patients with suspected coronary artery disease and hence proposed that such techniques can be used for LVEF
measurement exchangeably but are recommended for the treatment of comparison volumes.
Major adverse cardiac events (MACE) were defined as a composite of death, stroke, myocardial infarction or recurrence of TTS, admission due to new onset of heart failure with a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF
) <30% and occurrence of a new left ventricular (LV) thrombus formation.
Nearly, 50% of patients who were not thrombolysed had moderate-to-severe LV systolic dysfunction with LVEF
< 40%, while only 32.08% of patients who received thrombolysis had EF < 40% (Figure.6).
LV dimensions and LVEF
were measured in parasternal long axis view, and TAPSE of the RV lateral wall was measured in apical four-chamber view, all of them were acquired by M-mode.
, LVESV and LVEDV were calculated by QGS software.
Although, many patients undergo safe intraoperative course of noncardiac surgery, their perioperative course is often complicated by tachyarrhythmias, AF which results in extraordinarily high morbidity and mortality especially in those with pre-existing AF and lower LVEF
. The primary goal in such cases is to maintain a heart rate of 80 to 100 beats / min, reduce the afterload and to offer adequate depth of anesthesia.
He was found to have severe global myocardial hypokinesia with LVEF
decreased from 55% prior to sunitinib to 30% to 35% after initiating treatment with sunitinib.
