Iliocaval Venous Obstruction, Cardiac Preload Reserve and Exercise Limitation

AbstractCardiac output during exercise increases by as much as fivefold in the untrained man, and by as much as eightfold in the elite athlete. Increasing venous return is a critical but much overlooked component of the physiological response to exercise. Cardiac disorders such as constrictive pericarditis, restrictive cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension are recognised to impair preload and cause exercise limitation; however, the effects of peripheral venous obstruction on cardiac function have not been well described. This manuscript will discuss how obstruction of the iliocaval venous outflow can lead to impairment in exercise tolerance, how such obstructions may be diagnosed, the potential implications of chronic obstructions on sympathetic nervous system activation, and relevance of venous compression syndromes in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.

Conclusions: Approximately, one-fourth of patients developed hyperkalaemia during follow-up which was associated with a lower MRA dose during follow-up. Discontinuation of MRA, but not hyperkalaemia itself, was associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality and heart failure admission in HFrEF patients.

The purpose of the meeting is to develop a research agenda targeted at the clinical causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. An interdisciplinary team of experts will address the question of why women die from these conditions (i.e. postpartum hemorrhage, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, infection, etc. ) and what can be done to identify patients at risk, and the interventions required to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.For more information go tohttp://www.cvent.com/d/pnqp0wAir date: 5/20/2020 8:00:00 AM

CONCLUSIONS: A significant positive correlation exists between HDI and obesity. As policy-makers attempt to improve the general welfare of the people, they should be aware of potential unwanted effects of development on the risk of obesity and overweight among the population.

Conclusions/interpretationOur study provides the first evidence thatAkap1 deficiency exacerbates diabetic cardiomyopathy by impeding mitochondrial translocation of NDUFS1 to induce mitochondrial dysfunction and cardiomyocyte apoptosis. Our findings suggest thatAkap1 upregulation has therapeutic potential for myocardial injury in individuals with diabetes.
