  1. 1. Diastolic left ventricular filling in 50-year-old male and female adults : Evaluation by Doppler echocardiography

    Författare :Toomas Kangro; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; Arterial distensibility; diastole; Doppler echocardiography; exercise; healthy persons; hypertension; LV filling; menopause; medicin; vård; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Physiology; Klinisk fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling abnormalities are seen in many patients with various cardiac disorders. Age is an important determinant of Doppler indices of LV diastolic filling. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Effect of valve replacement for aortic stenosis on ventricular function

    Författare :Ying Zhao; Michael Henein; Per Lindqvist; Eugenio Picano; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement; echocardiography; speckle tracking; exercise echocardiography; ventricular function; septal radial motion; twist; displacement; strain; strain rate;

    Sammanfattning : Background:Aortic stenosis (AS) is the commonest valve disease in the West. Aortic valve replacement (AVR) remains the only available management for AS and results in improved symptoms and recovery of ventricular functions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Surgical treatment in chronic aortic regurgitation : Timing, results, prognosis and left ventricular function

    Författare :Éva Tamás; Christian Olin; Eva Nylander; Mats Broqvist; Dan Lindblom; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic regurgitation; left ventricular function; exercise; physical capacity; echocardiography; Thoracic surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic aortic regurgitation (AR) of varying degree affects 13% of men and 8.5% of women. In persons with severe AR, the expected length of life and its quality are influenced. LÄS MER

  4. 4. New insights in the assessment of right ventricular function : an echocardiographic study

    Författare :Avin Calcutteea; Michael Y Henein; Per Lindqvist; Jan Engvall; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; echocardiography; right ventricle; ischaemic heart disease; pulmonary hypertension; aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement; three dimensional echocardiography; speckle tracking echocardiography; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background:  The right ventricle (RV) is multi-compartmental in orientation with a complex structural geometry. However, assessment of this part of the heart has remained an elusive clinical challenge. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Left Ventricular Dynamics During Exercise in Endurance Athletes

    Författare :Milena Sundstedt; Tommy Jonason; Egil Henriksen; Eva Nylander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Physiology; athletes; exercise; left ventricular dynamics; stroke volume; mitral annular motion; Fysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Large quantities of data have described left ventricular adaptation to endurance training, but basic concepts on left ventricular performance during exercise remain controversial. In this thesis, we present the results of studies of left ventricular dynamics during exercise in 89 endurance-trained athletes. LÄS MER
