Alpha-myosin heavy chain isoform and atrial size in patients with various types of mitral valve dysfunction: a quantitative study

Journal of the American College of Cardiology

PMID: 3106447

Abstract

The cardiac myosin phenotype, an important determinant of myocardial contractility, is modified by chronic increases in hemodynamic load. To quantify the proportion of atrial alpha-myosin heavy chain in various types of left atrial overload and to assess the possible relation between th...read more

Valvular Heart Disease

Valvular heart disease causes significant burden within the realm of cardiovascular diseases and is increasing in prevalence, especially that of aortic valve insufficiency. Rheumatic fever causing valvular diseases has decreased incidence in industrialized countries. Discover the latest research on valvular disease here.

Heart Septal Defects

Heart septal defects occur when the walls separating the different chambers of the heart are not completely closed off, leaving holes that can potentially lead to heart failure. Discover the latest research on heart septal defects here.

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart diseases are present since birth and are a result of improper development of the heart. Prenatal diagnosis on screening ultrasound can detect these defects and better techniques for surgical repair have improved the life expectancy of those born with these diseases. Discover the latest research on congenital heart diseases here.

Right Axis Deviation

Right axis deviation is detected from the direction of electrical depolarisation on an electrocardiogram. This is an indication of some underlying pathological mechanism such as right bundle branch block, rhythm abnormality and lateral myocardial infarction. Here is the latest research on right axis deviation.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Supraventricular Arrhythmias

Supraventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms, typically faster than normal rhythms, that originate in the upper part of the heart. Find the latest research on supraventricular arrhythmias here.
