Posted: April 3, 2019 at 5:41 pm

Cardiac remodeling is generally accepted as a determinant of the clinical course of heart failure (HF). Defined as genome expression resulting in molecular, cellular and interstitial changes and manifested clinically as changes in size, shape and function of the heart resulting from cardiac load or injury, cardiac remodeling is influenced by hemodynamic load, neurohormonal activation and other factors still under investigation Continue reading

Ventricular hypertrophy – Wikipedia

Posted: December 26, 2018 at 6:41 am

Ventricular hypertrophy (VH) is thickening of the walls of a ventricle (lower chamber) of the heart.[1][2] Although left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is more common, right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH), as well as concurrent hypertrophy of both ventricles can also occur. Ventricular hypertrophy can result from a variety of conditions, both adaptive and maladaptive. Continue reading

Ventricular remodeling – Wikipedia

Posted: December 21, 2018 at 12:42 am

In cardiology, ventricular remodeling (or cardiac remodeling)[1] refers to changes in the size, shape, structure, and function of the heart. This can happen as a result of exercise (physiological remodeling) or after injury to the heart muscle (pathological remodeling).[2] The injury is typically due to acute myocardial infarction (usually transmural or ST segment elevation infarction), but may be from a number of causes that result in increased pressure or volume, causing pressure overload or volume overload (forms of strain) on the heart.

The Significance of Cardiac Remodeling – verywellhealth.com

Posted: at 12:42 am

Cardiac remodeling is a term that refers to changes in the hearts size and shape that occur in response to cardiac disease or cardiac damage. When doctors talk about remodeling, they are usually talking about the left ventricle, though occasionally this term is applied to other cardiac chambers. When you remodel your house, that is often considered a good thing. Continue reading

Cardiac remodeling is a term that refers to changes in the hearts size and shape that occur in response to cardiac disease or cardiac damage. When doctors talk about remodeling, they are usually talking about the left ventricle, though occasionally this term is applied to other cardiac chambers. When you remodel your house, that is often considered a good thing. The opposite is true with remodeling of the heart. In general, the greater the degree of ventricular remodeling, the worse the patients outcome is likely to be. When the left ventricle is damaged -for instance, by amyocardial infarction(heart attack) or by cardiomyopathy-changes often occur in the size and shape of the ventricle. The ventricle tends to become enlarged, its general shape becomes more globular and less elliptical, and the muscular wall of the ventricle often becomes thinner. This remodeling occurs due to mechanical stress on the heart muscle produced by the underlying disease process. In the early stages of a heart attack, some degree of remodeling can help the ventricle compensate for the damage that has occurred. But if this initial remodeling process continues, and the changes in the size and shape of the ventricle become more exaggerated, cardiac function … Continue reading

Cardiac resynchronization therapy – Wikipedia

Posted: June 23, 2018 at 8:42 am

An implanted cardiac resynchronization device is a medical device used in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). It resynchronizes the contractions of the hearts ventricles by sending tiny electrical impulses to the heart muscle, which can help the heart pump blood throughout the body more efficiently. CRT defibrillators (CRT-D) also incorporate the additional function of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, to quickly terminate an abnormally fast, life-threatening heart rhythm. CRT and CRT-D have become increasingly important therapeutic options for patients with moderate and severe heart failure.[1] Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is an effective therapy in patients with heart failure and dyssynchrony identified as a prolonged QRS duration.[2] Benefits include improved exercise tolerance, reduced remodeling (reduction in LV chamber size and measures of mitral regurgitation), reduced mortality, and reduced need for hospitalization in patients in sinus rhythm. Several research papers[3][4] have proposed software platforms for planning and guiding the implantation of CRT devices. This research proposes using pre-operative images to characterize tissue and left ventricle activation to identify potential target regions for deploying the CRT leads.
