Preliminary investigation of cardiopulmonary function in stroke patients with stable heart failure and exertional dyspnea.
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between pulmonary function, respiratory muscle strength, perceived dyspnea, degree of fatigue, and activity of daily living with motor function and neurological status in stroke patients with

Two Distinct Responses of Left Ventricular End-Diastolic Pressure to Leg-Raise Exercise in Euvolemic Patients with Exertional Dyspnea.
Few studies have invasively assessed diastolic functional reserve and serial changes in left ventricular hemodynamics in euvolemic patients with exertional dyspnea. In this study, sequential changes in left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP)

Relationships between biomarkers and left ventricular filling pressures at rest and during exercise in patients after myocardial infarction.
Increased pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) is an independent prognostic predictor after myocardial infarction (MI), but PCWP is difficult to assess noninvasively in subjects with preserved ejection fraction (EF). We hypothesized that biomark

Protocol for exercise hemodynamic assessment: performing an invasive cardiopulmonary exercise test in clinical practice.
Invasive cardiopulmonary exercise testing (iCPET) combines full central hemodynamic assessment with continuous measurements of pulmonary gas exchange and ventilation to help in understanding the pathophysiology underpinning unexplained exertional int

Association of exercise tolerance with effective arterial elastance obtained noninvasively in patients with exertional dyspnea.
Ventricular-arterial stiffening is a part of the aging process that is amplified by various comorbidities. It affects normal cardiovascular reserve and limits exercise capacity. The aim of this study was to explore the association of physiologic dete

Novel scoring system using postoperative cardiopulmonary exercise testing predicts future explantation of left ventricular assist device.
Although cardiopulmonary exercise (CPX) testing is an established tool for predicting survival in patients with heart failure (HF), its prognostic impact on explantation of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) was unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: We en

Relationship between non-invasive haemodynamic responses and cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with coronary artery disease.
Non-invasive assessment of haemodynamic function by impedance cardiography (IC) constitutes an interesting approach to monitor cardiac function in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, such measurements are most often performed at res

Left atrial volume predicts abnormal exercise left ventricular filling pressure.
Latent heart failure at rest can be observed in a number of patients upon exercise. Considering left atrial (LA) remodelling as the reflection of the cumulative effects of the LV filling pressure (FP) over time, our aim was to investigate whether the

Echocardiography detects elevated left ventricular filling pressures in heart transplant recipients.
Diastolic dysfunction is a recognized complication in heart transplant (HTx) recipients that limits exercise capacity and is a risk factor for mortality. We investigated the ability of echocardiography to detect elevated pulmonary capillary wedge pre
