Robert E Shave, Daniel E Lieberman, Aimee L Drane, Marcel G Brown, Alan M Batterham, Steven Worthington, Rebeca Atencia, Yedra Feltrer, Jennifer Neary, Rory B Weiner, Meagan M Wasfy, Aaron L Baggish,

Chimpanzees and gorillas, when not inactive, engage primarily in short bursts of resistance physical activity (RPA), such as climbing and fighting, that creates pressure stress on the cardiovascular system. In contrast, to initially hunt and gather and later to farm, it is thought that preindustrial human survival was dependent on ... Read more >>

Myocardial Adaptations to Competitive Swim Training.

Meagan M Wasfy, Rory B Weiner, Francis Wang, Brant Berkstresser, James Deluca, Adolph M Hutter, Michael H Picard, Aaron L Baggish,

<h4>Purpose</h4>Swim training is performed in the prone or supine position and obligates water immersion, factors that may augment cardiac volume loading more than other endurance sports. At present, prospective data defining the cardiac responses to swim training are lacking. We therefore studied myocardial adaptations among competitive swimmers to establish a ... Read more >>

Clinical guidelines advocate for customization of exercise testing to address patient-specific diagnostic goals, including reproduction of presenting exertional symptoms. However, the diagnostic yield of adding customized exercise testing to graded exercise in patients presenting with exertional complaints has not been rigorously examined and is the focus of this study. Using ... Read more >>

Ankit B Shah, Mary Z Bechis, Marcel Brown, Jennifer Michaud Finch, Garrett Loomer, Erich Groezinger, Rory B Weiner, Meagan M Wasfy, Michael H Picard, Michael A Fifer, Gregory B Lewis, Aaron L Baggish,

KEY POINTS:Intense physical activity, a potent stimulus for sympathetic nervous system activation, is thought to increase the risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmias among patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). As a result, the majority of patients with HCM deliberately reduce their habitual physical activity after diagnosis and this lifestyle change puts ... Read more >>

Cardiovascular response to prescribed detraining among recreational athletes.

Charles R Pedlar, Marcel G Brown, Robert E Shave, James M Otto, Aimee Drane, Jennifer Michaud-Finch, Miranda Contursi, Meagan M Wasfy, Adolph Hutter, Michael H Picard, Gregory D Lewis, Aaron L Baggish,

Exercise-induced cardiac remodeling (EICR) and the attendant myocardial adaptations characteristic of the athlete's heart may regress during periods of exercise reduction or abstinence. The time course and mechanisms underlying this reverse remodeling, specifically the impact of concomitant plasma volume (PV) contraction on cardiac chamber size, remain incompletely understood. We therefore ... Read more >>

Amy G Fiedler, Vijeta Bhambhani, Elizabeth Laikhter, Michael H Picard, Meagan M Wasfy, George Tolis, Serguei Melnitchouk, Thoralf M Sundt, Jason H Wasfy,

OBJECTIVES:Although guidelines support aortic valve replacement (AVR) in patients with severe aortic regurgitation (AR) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <50%, severe left ventricular dysfunction (LVEF <35%) is thought to confer high surgical risk. We sought to determine if a survival benefit exists with AVR compared with medical management in ... Read more >>
