adipose tissue is related to anthropometric and clinical parameters of metabolic syndrome: a new indicator of cardiovascular risk.
Occasionally, prominent epicardial
fat or epicardial
hematoma is mistaken at echocardiography for a pericardial mass.
adipose tissue volume and cardiovascular disease in hemodialysis patients.
Release of inflammatory factors from epicardial
adipose tissue may be promoting an active atherosclerotic process, and this is indicated by the presence of non-calcified plaques," Raggi says.
Ischemia and even myocyte injury can occur in the absence of overt epicardial
fat in patients with coronary atherosclerosis produced greater amounts of proinflammatory cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor, and lesser quantities of protective factors, such as adiponectin.
Its products include venous vessel introducers, epicardial
and endocardial stimulation leads, safety needles and other products for use in pacemaker, defibrillator, catheter and infusion port procedures as well as neuromodulation and hearing restoration markets.
One-third of the women were found to have significant CAD on angiography as defined as a 50% or more luminal diameter stenosis in an epicardial
Cardiac catheterization disclosed angiographically normal epicardial
coronary arteries and a left ventricular ejection fraction of approximately 25%.
The article's take away message for me is that epicardial
ablation should be viewed as complimentary ablation to traditional catheter approaches to improve outcomes, and to expand treatment capabilities to the broader AF patient population suffering from persistent or permanent atrial fibrillation with left atrial enlargement.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Isolated rabbit hearts were perfused according to the Langendorff technique and connected to a 256-channel epicardial
They address tissue effects, cryotechnology, and clinical applications of procedures like ablation for atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT) and atrial flutter and fibrillation, septal pathways, balloon-based and endocardial cryoablation, epicardial
cryoablation for patients undergoing mitral valve surgery, and cryoablation of ventricular tachycardias, as well as history and mechanisms.
