Cardiac cachexia: Perspectives for prevention and treatment
(Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia, 2017-01-01) [Artigo]
Cachexia is a prevalent pathological condition associated with chronic heart failure. Its occurrence predicts increased morbidity and mortality independent of important clinical variables such as age, ventricular function, ...

Martinez PF, Okoshi K, Zornoff LA, Oliveira Jr SA, Campos DH, Lima AR, Damatto RL, Cezar MD, Bonomo C, Guizoni DM, Padovani CR, Cicogna AC, Okoshi MP. Echocardiographic detection of congestive heart failure in postinfarction ...
Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome in Japanese-Brazilians According to Specific Definitions for Ethnicity
(Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders, 2010-04-01) [Artigo]
Background: The American Heart Association/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (AHA/NHLBI), revising the National Cholesterol Evaluation Program for Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III), and the International ...
Follow-up study of morphology and cardiac function in rats undergoing induction of supravalvular aortic stenosis
(Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia, 2003-12-01) [Artigo]
OBJETIVO: Caracterizar, evolutivamente, o modelo experimental de hipertrofia ventricular esquerda (HVE) por indução de estenose aórtica supravalvar em ratos jovens. MÉTODOS: Ratos Wistar foram submetidos a toracotomia para ...
Chronic heart failure-induced skeletal muscle atrophy, necrosis, and changes in myogenic regulatiory factors
(Medical Science Monitor, 2010-12-01) [Artigo]
Background: Although intrinsic skeletal muscle abnormalities can influence exercise intolerance during heart failure (HF), the factors responsible for muscle changes have not been elucidated. In this study we evaluated the ...
Long-term low intensity physical exercise attenuates heart failure development in aging spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Cellular Physiology And Biochemistry, 2015-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Physical exercise is a strategy to control hypertension and attenuate pressure overload-induced cardiac remodeling. The influence of exercise on cardiac remodeling during uncontrolled hypertension is not ...
Doppler echocardiography in athletes from different sports
(Medical Science Monitor, 2013-03-12) [Artigo]
Background: Studies have shown cardiac changes induced by intense and regular physical activity. The purpose of this study was to evaluate cardiac structures and function in soccer players, cyclists and long-distance ...
Untreated tophaceous gout
(International Journal of Case Reports and Images, 2014) [Artigo]
Aldosterone Blockade Reduces Mortality without Changing Cardiac Remodeling in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats
(Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: The role of aldosterone blockers during transition from long-term compensated hypertrophy to dilated failure is not completely understood. In this study we evaluated the effects of early administration of ...
Heart Failure-Induced Diaphragm Myopathy
(Cellular Physiology And Biochemistry, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Intracellular signaling pathways involved in skeletal myosin heavy chain (MyHC) isofornn alterations during heart failure (HF) are not completely understood. We tested the hypothesis that diaphragm expression ...
