Heart rate turbulence: An additional parameter in determining the need for mechanical relief of mitral stenosis?
(I C R PUBLISHERS, 2007)
Background and aim of the study: Heart rate turbulence (HRT) is a relatively newer parameter which has predictive value for mortality and severity in a variety of cardiovascular diseases. The study aim was to investigate ...
Impact of beta-blockers on sleep in patients with mild hypertension: a randomized trial between nebivolol and metoprolol
Introduction: Sleep is an innate and essential part of human life. Various aspects of sleep are negatively affected by beta-blockers. We compared the impact of two beta-blockers, metoprolol succinate (extended release) and ...
Comparative effects of levosimendan and dobutamine on right ventricular function in patients with biventricular heart failure
Severe heart failure represents a major source of morbidity and mortality. Poor right ventricular function is an independent prognostic marker for mortality in patients with chronic heart failure. In this study, levosimendan ...
Levosimendan improves renal function in patients with acute decompensated heart failure: Comparison with dobutamine
Background Levosimendan is a relatively new cardiac inotropic agent with calcium sensitizing activity. This study was conducted to investigate the effects of levosimendan (L) and dobutamine (D) on renal function in patients ...
Comparison of myocardial performance index versus ratio of isovolumic contraction time/ejection time in left ventricular systolic dysfunction
Myocardial performance index (MPI) has been regarded as an important parameter in the evaluation of ventricular systolic function in congestive heart failure. This study was designed to investigate the relationship between ...
