RV contractility and exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension in chronic mountain sickness: a stress echocardiographic and tissue doppler imaging study
(JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging, 2013-12)
O B J E C T I V E S The aim of this study was to evaluate right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular function and pulmonary circulation in chronic mountain sickness (CMS) patients with rest and stress echocardiography ...
Exaggerated exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension causes lung water accumulation and right ventricular dysfunction in patients with chronic mountain sickness
(High Altitude Medicine & Biology, 2010-08-08)
Introduction: Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is characterized by exaggerated exercise-induced pulmonary hypertension. Evidences suggest that exercise may cause lung fluid accumulation at high altitude. We hypothesized ...
Exaggerated pulmonary hypertension during mild exercise in chronic mountain sickness
Background: Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is an important public health problem and is characterized by exaggerated hypoxemia, erythrocytosis, and pulmonary hypertension. While pulmonary hypertension is a leading cause ...
Pulmonary and systemic vascular dysfunction in young offspring of mothers with preeclampsia
Background—Adverse events in utero may predispose to cardiovascular disease in adulthood. The underlying mechanisms are unknown. During preeclampsia, vasculotoxic factors are released into the maternal circulation by the ...
