Phillips & Harkin (2003) diagnosed hypothyroidism and cardiac failure in two dogs, whose echocardiographic findings were similar to those documented in subjects diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy, including diminished fractional shortening and augmented left ventricular internal diameters in systole and diastole.
Thus at diastole there is stasis of the blood flow, since there is an upward pressure gradient
Flow was seen through the defect during both systole and diastole excluding the possibility of tricuspid regurgitation artifact.
Aortic regurgitation (AR) is defined as reflux of blood from aorta into the left ventricle during diastole because of non-cooptation of aortic valve leaflets during diastole.
El ventriculo derecho se encuentra inmediatamente detras del esternon por lo que se encuentra predispuesto a la compresion anteroposterior provocada por este tipo de trauma, especialmente durante la fase de fin de diastole (3).
Some patients developed diastole impairment after a few months on the drugs, an early sign of congestive heart failure.
The i-cor system is a small extracorporeal pump that is synchronized to the heart beat (the ECG) so that augmentation of cardiac output with well-oxygenated blood occurs during diastole.
Ja a diastole (PAD), ocorre no momento em que o ventriculo esquerdo volta a encher-se para reiniciar todo o processo da circulacao.
Left atrium (LA) is a reservoir for the LV during systole, a conduit [for blood to ow from pulmonary veins (PVs) to the LV] during early diastole and an active contractile chamber in late diastole.
9) In M-mode echocardiography, ventricular septal and posterior wall thicknesses were measured at end diastole through a parasternal long-axis view.
Based on studies (26) of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging of hypertensive heart disease and HCM, it was found that there was a statistically significant difference in left ventricle maximal wall thickness between the two conditions, measured at diastole.
Myocardial velocities were measured in systole (Sm), early diastole (Em) and late diastole (Am) and the Em/Am ratio was calculated.
