Five-year results for people given hearts
with mild-to-moderate left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) -- a thickening of the heart's main pumping chamber -- were as good as for those who got hearts with no problems, the researchers report in the March 25 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Andrius Velicka had given Hearts
an early lead, but Hamilton bundled home amid claims of handball and the home side struggled to find any rhythm to create a winner.
But French striker Stephane Adam - who had given Hearts
a fifth-minute lead - struck in the last minute to send the 25,000 Tynecastle fans wild.
Neil McCabe and Mark Morrison had twice given Hearts
the lead but John Voigt and John Gates levelled things before Paddy Deane and Stuart Cargill goals won it.
Those Great War heroes of the 1914 Tynecastle team have always given Hearts
and Remembrance a special affinity, and it was pleasing to see Romanov's regime ensure the tradition remained, and indeed see the owner make a rare personal appearance.
Andrius Velicka looked to have given Hearts
the win at this venue in November, only for Jiri Jarosik to level with four minutes left before a Craig Gordon fumble at the death saw the Edinburgh club grab defeat from the jaws of victory.
Ricksen reckons referee Willie Young should have given Hearts
a penalty when Steven Pressley went down after a challenge from Craig Beattie, but the ref declined and instead sent the Jambos skipper off for diving.
In addition to the 21 patients in the study given hearts
, eight others placed on the pump had not been stable enough to receive a heart and later did.
