  • Loncaric, Filip; Bijnens, Bart; Sitges, Marta (Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Journals, 2018)
    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is clinically defined by the presence of increased left ventricular (LV) wall thickness that is not solely explained by abnormal loading conditions. The aetiology is diverse, but in 60% of ...
  • Mas‐Stachurska, Aleksandra; Siegert, Anna‐Maria; Batlle, Montserrat; Gorbenko del Blanco, Darya; Meirelles, Thayna; Rubies, Cira; Bonorino, Fabio; Serra‐Peinado, Carla; Bijnens, Bart; Baudin, Julio; Sitges, Marta; Mont, Lluís; Guasch, Eduard; Egea, Gustavo (Wiley, 2017)
    Marfan syndrome (MF) leads to aortic root dilatation and a predisposition to aortic dissection, mitral valve prolapse, and primary and secondary cardiomyopathy. Overall, regular physical exercise is recommended for a healthy ...
  • Sitges, Marta; Merino, Beatriz; Butakoff, Constantine; Sanz de la Garza, Maria; Paré, Carles; Montserrat, Silvia; Vidal, Barbara; Azqueta, Manel; Sarquella-Brugada, Georgia; Gutierrez, Josep Antoni; Canal, Ramon; Brugada, Josep; Bijnens, Bart (Springer, 2017)
    Background: The significance and spectrum of reduced right ventricular (RV) deformation, reported in endurance athletes, is unclear. Purpose: to comprehensively analyze the cardiac performance at rest of athletes, especially ...
  • Rodriguez López, Mérida; Cruz-Lemini, Mónica; Valenzuela Alcaraz, Brenda; Garcia‐Otero, Laura; Sitges, Marta; Bijnens, Bart; Gratacós Solsona, Eduard; Crispi Brillas, Fàtima (Wiley, 2017)
    Objective: To identify the presence of different cardiac phenotypes among FGR. Study Design: Fetal echocardiography was performed in 126 FGR (defined as birth weight <10th centile) and 64 adequate for gestational age (AGA). ...
  • Cruz-Lemini, Mónica; Crispi Brillas, Fàtima; Valenzuela Alcaraz, Brenda; Figueras, Francesc; Sitges, Marta; Bijnens, Bart; Gratacós Solsona, Eduard (Wiley, 2016)
    Objectives Intrauterine growth restriction is associated with increased cardiovascular risk later in life but the link between fetal disease and postnatal risk is not well‐documented. We evaluated longitudinally the ...
  • Sanchis, Laura; Sanz de la Garza, Maria; Bijnens, Bart; Giraldeau, Geneviève; Grazioli, Gonzalo; Marin, Josefa; Gabrielli, Luigi; Montserrat, Silvia; Sitges, Marta (Taylor & Francis, 2017)
    Background: High-intensity training has been associated with atrial remodelling and arrhythmias in men. Our purpose was to analyse atrial performance in female endurance athletes, compared to male athletes and controls. ...
  • Ortigosa, Núria; Rodriguez López, Mérida; Bailón, Raquel; Sarvari, Sebastian Imre; Sitges, Marta; Gratacós Solsona, Eduard; Bijnens, Bart; Crispi Brillas, Fàtima; Laguna, Pablo (Elsevier, 2016)
    Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR) and premature birth are associated with higher risk of cardiovascular diseases throughout adulthood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of these factors in ventricular ...
  • Bijnens, Bart; Porras Pérez, Antonio Reyes; Alessandrini, M.; De Craene, Mathieu; Duchateau, Nicolas; Sitges, Marta; Delingette, Hervé; Sermesant, Maxime; D'hooge, Jan; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro; Piella Fenoy, Gemma (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    We propose a technique for myocardial motion estimation based on image registration using both B-mode echocardiographic images and tissue Doppler sequences acquired interleaved. The velocity field is modeled continuously ...
  • Sanz de la Garza, Maria; Giraldeau, Geneviève; Marin, Josefa; Grazioli, Gonzalo; Esteve, Montserrat; Gabrielli, Luigi; Brambila, Carlos; Sanchis, Laura; Bijnens, Bart; Sitges, Marta (Springer, 2017)
    Background: Characteristic right ventricle (RV) remodelling is related to endurance exercise in male athletes (MAs), but data in female athletes (FAs) are scarce. Our aim was to evaluate sex-related influence on exercise-induced ...
  • Imre Sarvari, Sebastian; Rodriguez López, Mérida; Nuñez-Garcia, Marta; Sitges, Marta; Sepulveda-Martinez, Alvaro; Camara, Oscar; Butakoff, Constantine; Gratacós Solsona, Eduard; Bijnens, Bart; Crispi Brillas, Fàtima (American Hearth Association, 2017)
    Fetal growth restriction (FGR) affects 5% to 10% of newborns and is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality in adulthood. We evaluated whether prenatal cardiovascular changes previously demonstrated in FGR persist ...
  • Soto-Iglesias, David; Duchateau, Nicolas; Butakoff, Constantine; Andreu Martínez, David; Fernández-Armenta, Juan; Bijnens, Bart; Berruezo Sánchez, Antonio; Sitges, Marta; Camara, Oscar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Electro-anatomical maps (EAMs) are commonly acquired in clinical routine for guiding ablation therapies. They provide voltage and activation time information on a 3-D anatomical mesh representation, making them useful for ...
  • Sanz de la Garza, Maria; Rubies, Cira; Batlle, Montserrat; Bijnens, Bart; Mont, Lluís; Sitges, Marta; Guasch, Eduard (American Physiological Society, 2017)
    Arrhythmogenic right ventricular (RV) remodeling has been reported in response to regular training, but it remains unclear how exercise intensity affects the presence and extent of such remodeling. We aimed to assess the ...
