Sotalol is a unique beta-blocker that prolongs repolarization. Its use in 626 patients with complex ventricular ectopic activity, as reported in the literature, resulted in suppression of arrhythmia in 50 to 60% of treatment attempts. Detailed analysis of data...

From January 1985 to March 1992, 64 consecutive neonates with transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and ventricular septal defect (VSD) underwent an arterial switch operation and VSD closure. The mean age at operation was 18.5 +/- 12 days...

Physiological consequences of altered peak left ventricular diastolic filling rate in hypertension have not yet been fully assessed. The hypothesis that altered left ventricular diastolic filling rate interferes with inhibitory cardiopulmonary reflexes was tested. Normalized peak left ventricular diastolic...

The effects of hemorrhagic shock on left ventricular dimensions and volume were studied in 15 splenectomized dogs. A 42 +/- 1% decrease in total blood volume caused arterial blood pressure to fall 60% (from 120 +/- 5 to 48...

OBJECTIVES: To assess changes in heart rate and cardiac arrhythmias during anaesthetic induction and tracheal intubation in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.MATERIAL AND METHODS: 79 patients scheduled for cardiac surgery were divided into three groups: group I, 36 valvular diseases...

To determine whether the age-associated decline in resting left ventricular diastolic filling persists during aerobic exercise, rest and bicycle exercise filling indexes were measured from gated radionuclide blood pool scans in 88 healthy men aged 22-82 yr. To evaluate...

The course of left ventricular hypertrophy was investigated in anemic hemodialysis patients treated with recombinant human erythropoietin (r-huEPO). 12 patients, aged 60.8 +/- 9.9 years (mean +/- SD) were treated for 18.8 +/- 2.7 months. Left ventricular size was...

The authors assessed, using Doppler echocardiography under standard conditions, indicators of left ventricular filling in 95 patients, mean age 52 years, with arterial hypertension of varying severity. The patients were divided into four groups: Group I--Patients with severe hypertension...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in right ventricular function during acute coronary occlusion produced by inflating a coronary angioplasty balloon catheter.BACKGROUND: Alterations in right ventricular function are well known to occur in patients...

In recent years, two pathophysiological conditions--stunned and hibernating myocardium--have been described showing how function may be depressed in myocardium that remains viable. The aims of the present study were postoperative assessment of LV function at rest and during exercise...
