    • Determination of myocardial infarction size in rats by echocardiography and tetrazolium staining: correlation, agreements, and simplifications 

      Santos, Leonardo dos [UNIFESP]; Mello, Ana.f.s. [UNIFESP]; Antonio, Ednei Luiz [UNIFESP]; Tucci, Paulo José Ferreira [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2008-03-01)
      Triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC) staining and echocardiography (ECHO) are methods used to determine experimental myocardial infarction (MI) size, whose practical applicability should be expanded. Our objectives were to ...

    • Performance of two-dimensional Doppler echocardiography for the assessment of infarct size and left ventricular function in rats 

      Nozawa, E. [UNIFESP]; Kanashiro-Takeuchi, Rosimeire Miyuki [UNIFESP]; Murad, N. [UNIFESP]; Carvalho, Antonio Carlos [UNIFESP]; Cravo, Sergio Luiz [UNIFESP]; Campos Filho, Orlando [UNIFESP]; Tucci, Paulo José Ferreira [UNIFESP]; Moisés, Valdir Ambrósio [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2006-05-01)
      Although echocardiography has been used in rats, few studies have determined its efficacy for estimating myocardial infarct size. Our objective was to estimate the myocardial infarct size, and to evaluate anatomic and ...

    • A routine electrocardiogram cannot be used to determine the size of myocardial infarction in the rat 

      Bonilha, Andre.Mateis Martins [UNIFESP]; Saraiva, Roberto Magalhães [UNIFESP]; Kanashiro-Takeuchi, Rosimeire Miyuki [UNIFESP]; Portes, Leslie Andrews [UNIFESP]; Antonio, Ednei Luiz [UNIFESP]; Tucci, Paulo José Ferreira [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2005-04-01)
      Nine lead electrocardiograms of non-infarcted (N = 61) and infarcted (N = 71) female Wistar rats (200-250 g) were analyzed in order to distinguish left ventricle myocardial infarction (MI) larger than 40% (LMI) from MI ...
