The association between right ventricular free wall strain and exercise capacity for health check-up subjects

Background Right ventricular (RV) function has been found to be a major factor of exercise capacity in patients with heart failure. However, the role of RV function in exercise capacity in healthy subjects has not been well studied. This study aims to validate the role of RV strain derived from speckle tracking echocardiography for exercise capacity for health check-up subjects...

Elevated Serum Interleukin-18 Level Is Associated with All-Cause Mortality in Stable Hemodialysis Patients Independently of Cardiac Dysfunction

Background High circulating interleukin (IL)-18 level predicts a higher hospitalization rate among dialysis patients, possibly through cardiovascular mechanisms; however, whether higher IL-18 level is associated with mortality in dialysis patients is less clear. In addition, its impacts on left ventricular (LV) function are also unknown. We conducted a cohort study to examine the...

Atypical presentation of "takotsubo cardiomyopathy" without ST segment elevation: a case report

Introduction "Takotsubo cardiomyopathy" is characterized by transient LV dysfunction and mimicking acute myocardial infarction. Case presentation We reported a case with atypical presentation of "takotsubo cardiomyopathy" without ST segment elevation, but with severe transient left ventricular dysfunction. Conclusion Diagnosis of "takotsubo cardiomyopathy" should be based on...

Tuberculous constrictive pericarditis with concurrent active pulmonary tuberculous infection: a case report

Introduction In some particular endemic area, it is not uncommon to see patients with tuberculosis pericarditis. However, it takes a period of time from tuberculous pericarditis to constrictive pericarditis. There is still no report of tuberculous constrictive pericarditis concurrent with active pulmonary TB infection in a patient without previous pulmonary TB infection history...
