Example sentences for: dcm

How can you use “dcm” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In vivo contractile performance of the heart was assessed bythe determination of fractional shortening of the left ventricle.As shown in Table 1and Figure 1, fractional shortening was increasedby 32 and 45% in DCM 1 and DCM 20 animals, respectively,compared to non-treated DCM animals (DCM 0 ). Comparedwith baseline values at the time of randomization, the improvementin fractional shortening was of 57% in DCM 1 and 65% inDCM 20 . Associated with improved cardiac function wasa reduction in the incidence of apoptotic nuclei (see below).

  • In non-treatedDCM animals the hearts weighed significantly less than control hearts(p = 0.01).

  • 2 locus [ 9 ] . Mutations in the LMNA gene associated with DCM have a more severe prognosis and higher-event rates compared to individuals with DCM that do not have LMNA mutations [ 20 ] . A recent report describing another family with a LMNA mutation causing DCM and conduction system disease documents the need for permanent pacemaker implantation [ 21 ] . Previous reports on the proband's kindred support a high-event rate in family members often resulting in sudden cardiac death even in family members with permanent pacemakers [ 10 ] . For example, ten out of 38 family members with pacemakers for high-grade atrioventricular block died suddenly.

  • An example of such an observation is depicted in Figure 3Aand 3B(DCM 1 and DCM 20 respectively).Both the lower and the higher doses of carvedilol were effectivein reducing apoptosis from 5.64 ± 0.49% in non-treated DCM animalsto almost control levels 2.32 ± 0.23% (DCM 1 ) and 2.36± 0.26% (DCM 20 ), p < 0.001, compared to DCM 0 respectively(Figure 3C).

  • Individuals with DCM and conduction system disease should be screened by family history and genetic testing.
