Europace 14:325-30. 2012..We sought to determine the safety and efficacy of propofol infusion sedation administered to patients without assisted ventilation for AF ablation...
- Instantaneous effects of resynchronisation therapy on exercise performance in heart failure patients: the mechanistic role and predictive power of total isovolumic timeT V Salukhe
National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College, London, UK
Heart 94:59-64. 2008..We sought to determine the acute effect of resynchronisation on exercise performance and determine, with pharmacological stress echocardiography, the mechanism underlying this effect...
- Mechanism of cardiac output gain from cardiac resynchronization therapy in patients with coronary artery disease or idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathyTushar V Salukhe
National Heart and Lung Institute, Royal Brompton Hospital, London, United Kingdom
Am J Cardiol 97:1358-64. 2006..Second, little of this increment in CO is achieved by AV delay shortening alone. Third, under native activation, long t-IVT during peak stress is the single best predictor of resynchronization-mediated increment in peak stress CO...
- Chronic heart failure patients with restrictive LV filling pattern have significantly less benefit from cardiac resynchronization therapy than patients with late LV filling patternTushar V Salukhe
National Heart Lung Institute, Royal Brompton Hospital, Sydney Street, London SW3 6 NP, UK
Int J Cardiol 100:5-12. 2005..Indeed, the very mechanism of benefit from resynchronization is controversial. Resynchronization may work by improving ventricular filling: we tested the hypothesis that benefit from resynchronization depends on filling pattern...
