Athlete’s heart Athlete’s heart denotes structural, functional and electrical remodeling seen in trained athletes. It is a physiological adaptation helping athletes perform physical tasks better than non-athletes .
Left ventricular reverse remodeling Left ventricular remodeling which starts initially as a beneficial process becomes detrimental later on leading to progressive worsening of left ventricular dilatation and dysfunction.
GALACTIC-HF Trial: Omecamtiv mecarbil GALACTIC-HF trial evaluated omecamtiv mecarbil, a cardiac myosin activator in heart failure with reduced ejection fraction . The study had 8256 patients which included
Echocardiographic assessment of LV diastolic function Though there are several parameters for evaluation of left ventricular diastolic function by echocardiography, the most commonly used are the pulsed Doppler
Non invasive cardiac output monitoring Conventionally, measurement of cardiac output was done invasively. Initially with dye dilution techniques and later by thermodilution techniques. Both needed pulmonary artery catheterization,
Metabolic modulation in heart failure Most of the treatment strategies in heart failure like angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI), angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB), angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitors (ARNI) and
