Diagnostic concordance of echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance-based tissue tracking for differentiating constrictive pericarditis from restrictive cardiomyopathy.
 

Author(s): Makoto Amaki, John Savino, David L Ain, Javier Sanz, Gianni Pedrizzetti, Hemant Kulkarni, Jagat Narula, Partho P Sengupta

Journal: Circ Cardiovasc Imaging. 2014 Sep;7(5):819-27.

 

Variations in longitudinal deformation of the left ventricle have been suggested to be useful for differentiating chronic constrictive pericarditis (CP) and restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM). We assessed left ventricular mechanics derived from cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) cine-based ...

Journal: Eur. J. Heart Fail.. 2014 Feb;16(2):189-200.

 

In the STICH trial, adding surgical ventricular reconstruction (SVR) to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) reduced LV end-systolic volume index (LVESVI) by 19%, as compared with 6% with CABG alone, providing no survival or functional benefits. Herein, we compared the efficacy ...

Cardiac troponin mutations and restrictive cardiomyopathy.
 

Author(s): Michelle S Parvatiyar, Jose Renato Pinto, David Dweck, James D Potter

Journal: J. Biomed. Biotechnol.. 2010 ;2010():350706.

 

Mutations in sarcomeric proteins have recently been established as heritable causes of Restrictive Cardiomyopathy (RCM). RCM is clinically characterized as a defect in cardiac diastolic function, such as, impaired ventricular relaxation, reduced diastolic volume and increased end-diastolic ...
