Left ventricular ejection fraction was assessed using nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.
In addition, right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) can also be calculated using this technique, without the need for a first pass study.
Conclusion: Thirty one percent of the patients developed = 10% decline in left ventricular ejection fraction with the use of doxorubicin in the cumulative dose range of 300-400 mg/m2.
2 At first, the heart can compensate through concentric hypertrophy but, due to disease progression, becomes overwhelmed, causing a drop in the systolic left ventricular ejection fraction.
Plasma BNP levels also increase with decreasing physiological functional capacities, as measured by left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) or exercise-based evaluations [9].
The researchers measured various factors including finger arterial blood pressure, heart rate, left ventricular ejection time, and cardiac output.
Diastolic heart failure, defined as classic evidence of congestive heart failure with "preserved" or "normal" left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), (1) is often encountered in medical practice.
The result is improved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)--the percentage of blood in the ventricle that is ejected with each contraction.
A significant improvement was reportedly seen in both the six-minute walk as well as the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF).
Upgrading traditional 2 chamber cardiac pacemakers to modern 3 chamber pacemakers--cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices--improves left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), researchers reported online March 16th in the European Heart Journal.
