    • Early Repolarization Pattern in Competitive Athletes: Clinical Correlates and the Effects of Exercise Training 

      Noseworthy, P. A.; Weiner, Rory Brett; Kim, J.; Keelara, V.; Wang, Francis; Berkstresser, B.; Wood, Malissa Jane; Wang, Thomas J.; Picard, Michael Howard; Hutter, Adolph Matthew; Newton-Cheh, Christopher Holmes; Baggish, Aaron L. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2011)
      Background: Inferior lead early repolarization pattern (ERP) has recently been associated with sudden cardiac death. Although ERP is common among athletes, prevalence, ECG lead distribution, clinical characteristics, and ...
    • Long-Term Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid Use Is Associated With Left Ventricular Dysfunction 

      Baggish, Aaron L.; Weiner, Rory Brett; Kanayama, Gen; Hudson, James Irvin; Picard, Michael Howard; Hutter, Adolph Matthew; Pope, Harrison Graham (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2010)
      Background: Although illicit anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS) use is widespread, the cardiac effects of long-term AAS use remain inadequately characterized. We compared cardiac parameters in weightlifters reporting long-term ...
    • Preload Dependency of Left Ventricular Torsion: The Impact of Normal Saline Infusion 

      Weiner, Rory Brett; Weyman, Arthur Edward; Khan, A. M.; Reingold, J. S.; Chen-Tournoux, A. A.; Scherrer-Crosbie, Marielle; Picard, Michael Howard; Wang, T. J.; Baggish, Aaron L. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2010)
      Background: Left ventricular (LV) rotation results from contraction of obliquely oriented myocardial fibers. The net difference between systolic apical counterclockwise rotation and basal clockwise rotation is left ventricular ...
    • Weight Loss, Saline Loading, and the Natriuretic Peptide System 

      Arora, P.; Reingold, J.; Baggish, Aaron L.; Guanaga, Derek Philip; Wu, Connie; Ghorbani, Anahita; Song, Y.; Chen-Tournaux, A.; Khan, A. M.; Tainsh, L. T.; Buys, Emmanuel; Williams, Jonathan Sylvan; Heublein, D. M.; Burnett, J. C.; Semigran, Marc J.; Bloch, K. D.; Scherrer-Crosbie, Marielle; Newton-Cheh, Christopher Holmes; Kaplan, Lee Michael; Wang, T. J. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2015)
      Background-—In epidemiologic studies, obesity has been associated with reduced natriuretic peptide (NP) concentrations. Reduced NP production could impair the ability of obese individuals to respond to salt loads, increasing ...
