These "triggered activities" are single cell arrhythmia events that can propagate in the myocardium under certain pathophysiological conditions, and are well recognized as one of the central arrhythmogenic mechanisms in the heart (Bers 2002).
Mr Green suffered from arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathia, a heart muscle disease which results in arrhythmia, heart failure and sudden death.
He had been suffering from arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, a heart muscle disease that meant both chambers of his heart were close to failing.
In June 2009, newborn Ted, of Normanby, was admitted to the children's heart unit at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital, where an irregular heartbeat - a rare arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy - was diagnosed.
While [delta]-opioid receptor blockade has been found to have an antiarrhythmic effect during acute coronary occlusions, systemic infusions of DADLE are not arrhythmogenic and have no effects on the electrocardiogram during coronary occlusions (5,8).
Ted was admitted to the Freeman Hospital after his birth in June 2009 and doctors found he was suffering from an irregular heartbeat, later to be diagnosed as an arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy.
20) It is also important to differentiate RVOT VT from arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), which has a poorer prognosis, including the risk of SCD.
CMR provides the best imaging technique available for assessment of RV free wall contraction abnormalities and is particularly valuable in assessing patients with suspected arrhythmogenic RV dysplasia (ARVD).
Cardiomyopathies such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia account for approximately 10-15 per cent of sudden deaths (2).
7), (11) Other common causes include arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, and congenital coronary artery anomalies.
Researchers in mental health and neurological sciences then discuss such aspects as dizziness at the interface of psychiatry and neuro-otology, neurological causes of dizziness and vertigo, a modified vestibular rehabilitation program, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo in old age, arrhythmogenic causes of dizziness, cognitive deficits following complete bilateral loss of vestibular function and their relationship to the hippocampus, vibratory induced nystagmus in superior semicircular canal dehiscence and in otosclerosis, and pediatric vertigo.
An active scientific work is directed to understand and affect the processes in the brain, to monitor blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases, to study potentially dangerous myocardial arrhythmogenic behaviour, and to monitor end-stage renal disease patient treatment quality.
19) In addition, the arrhythmogenic effects of an alpha-adrenergic agonist can result in cardiovascular instability.
Background: To determine the incidence of early and late arrhythmogenic effects of doxorubicin-containing chemotherapy regimens.
Other cardiac problems that could increase the risk for sudden death in the presence of a stimulant include coronary artery syndrome, arrhythmogenic right ventricle dysplasia, long QT syndrome, and Brugada syndrome, the odds of which are several thousand to one, Dr.
