2661. Conditional FKBP12.6 overexpression in mouse cardiac myocytes prevents triggered ventricular tachycardia through specific alterations in excitation-contraction coupling. Full Text available with Trip Pro

to diastolic sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) leakage and ventricular tachycardia (VT). We tested the hypothesis that FKBP12.6 overexpression in cardiac myocytes can reduce susceptibility to VT in stress conditions.We developed a mouse model with conditional cardiac-specific overexpression of FKBP12.6. Transgenic mouse hearts showed a marked increase in FKBP12.6 binding to RyR2 compared with controls both at baseline and on isoproterenol stimulation (0.2 mg/kg i.p.). After pretreatment with isoproterenol (...) Conditional FKBP12.6 overexpression in mouse cardiac myocytes prevents triggered ventricular tachycardia through specific alterations in excitation-contraction coupling. Ca(2+) release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum via the ryanodine receptor (RyR2) activates cardiac myocyte contraction. An important regulator of RyR2 function is FKBP12.6, which stabilizes RyR2 in the closed state during diastole. Beta-adrenergic stimulation has been suggested to dissociate FKBP12.6 from RyR2, leading

2662. Breast stimulation test and oxytocin challenge test in fetal surveillance: a prospective randomized study. (Abstract)

Breast stimulation test and oxytocin challenge test in fetal surveillance: a prospective randomized study. Fifty healthy gravidas with uncomplicated singleton pregnancies at a gestational age of 35 to 42 weeks were assigned at random for the performance of either a breast stimulation test or an oxytocin challenge test after a nonreactive nonstress test. A satisfactory contraction stress test was achieved in 21 of 25 women in the breast stimulation test group and in 24 of 25 women (...) in the oxytocin challenge test group (nonsignificant difference). Significant differences were found in the cumulative rate of achieved contraction stress tests: in the breast stimulation test group 17 of 21 after 20 minutes and 21 of 21 at 50 minutes whereas in the oxytocin challenge test group only four of 24 at 20 minutes, eight of 24 at 50 minutes, and 21 of 24 at 150 minutes. The mean duration for the achievement of a contraction stress test was 20.9 +/- 11.5 minutes for the breast stimulation test group

to occur. It can be concluded, therefore, that AST offers a greater advantage over NST by lowering both the incidence of nonreactive tests and testing time, thereby resulting in less of a need for the contraction stress test and biophysical profile. (...) Comparison of the acoustic stimulation test with nonstress test. A randomized, controlled clinical trial. The nonstress test (NST) is a helpful adjunct in the management of high-risk pregnancies. It has high predictability and a low false-negative rate but unfortunately has fairly high false-positive results. Attempts have been made to find a suitable stimulant to help decrease nonreactive results as well as to shorten the duration of testing: the recently introduced fetal acoustic stimulation

a mechanical activation function, assumed as half a sinusoidal wave, to describe the time-dependent isometric stress for the activated cardiac muscle. This, in turn, results in the time-varying elastance function and represents the instantaneous activity of the muscle contractile proteins. The model is tested for a set of boundary conditions that determine preload, afterload, and the inherent properties of the muscle, i.e., the contractility. The computed results of the isovolumic contraction, auxotonic (...) Model for left ventricular contraction combining the force length velocity relationship with the time varying elastance theory. A model for the contraction of the left ventricle (LV) is developed for a spheroidal geometry. The classical force-length-velocity relationship for a single muscle fiber is assumed. The linear maximum pressure volume relationship (maximum elastance), a measure of muscle contractility, is further extended into a time-varying function. This is achieved by utilizing

2665. Pelvic Floor Muscle Contraction During a Cough and Decreased Vesical Neck Mobility Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pelvic Floor Muscle Contraction During a Cough and Decreased Vesical Neck Mobility To test the hypothesis that a voluntary pelvic muscle contraction initiated in preparation for a cough, a maneuver we call the Knack, significantly reduces vesical neck displacement.A convenience sample of 22 women consisted of 11 young, continent nulliparas (mean age [+/- standard deviation] 24.8 +/- 7.0 years) and 11 older, incontinent paras (mean age [+/-SD] 66.9 +/- 3.9 years). With the use of perineal (...) 4.6 (19.5) to 0.0 (17.0) mm (P =.007), and the older incontinent women demonstrated a median (range) decrease from 6.2 (10.0) to 3.5 (15.4) mm (P =.003). At rest, the median vesical neck position in the group of older incontinent women was significantly further dorsocaudal (P =.001) than in the younger women.A pelvic floor muscle contraction in preparation for, and throughout, a cough can augment proximal urethra support during stress, thereby reducing the amount of dorsocaudal displacement.

2666. Influence of vibration on endurance of maximal isometric contraction. (Abstract)

Influence of vibration on endurance of maximal isometric contraction. In order to investigate how vibration affects endurance during muscular contraction, knee-joint extension efforts were performed with and without superimposed vibrations. Fourteen healthy non-smoking 20-year-old males performed maximal isometric and sustained knee-joint extension efforts (angle 90 degrees) in sitting posture three times with each leg, with or without vibration. The tests were done once with each leg (...) in a randomly chosen order. The frequency of the vibration was 20 Hz and the acceleration 20 m/s2 RMS, applied in a horizontal sagittal direction to the ankle. The endurance was defined as the time in seconds that it took for the exerted force to decrease by 10% of the initial value. The endurance time averages 22.5 s without vibration and 15.8 s with vibration. The vibratory stress reduced endurance by 6.7 +/- 1.84 s (mean +/- SEM) (P less than 0.005). The difference in maximal force recorded initially

2667. VENTRICULAR ECTOPY DURING TREADMILL EXERCISE STRESS TESTING IN THE EVALUATION OF LONG QT SYNDROME Full Text available with Trip Pro

VENTRICULAR ECTOPY DURING TREADMILL EXERCISE STRESS TESTING IN THE EVALUATION OF LONG QT SYNDROME Long QT syndrome (LQTS) can present with sudden death during exertion.The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic importance of exercise-induced ventricular ectopy in the evaluation of LQTS.From 1998 to 2006, 381 patients with a referral diagnosis of LQTS underwent a treadmill exercise stress test. An investigator blinded to both genotype and rendered diagnosis scored the stress tests (...) for the presence of exercise-induced ventricular ectopy.The dismissal diagnosis was LQTS in 177 (46%), catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) in 16, miscellaneous cardiac disease in 17, and normal in 171. Exercise-induced ventricular ectopy was detected in 107 (28%) patients. However, only 34 patients (9% overall) had exercise-induced ventricular ectopy greater than single premature ventricular contractions (PVCs). Among the 171 patients dismissed as normal, only 2% had ectopy greater

[The atropine test in patients with stress incontinence and their treatment with a combination of diltiazem and oxyphenonium]. The authors applied the Atropine test in 28 patients with the motor type of urgent incontinence in an attempt to establish the prognosis of the success of treatment with parasymthatholytics. Atropine was administered in amounts of 0.01 mg/kg body weight by the i.m. route and after 30 mins. a urodynamic control examination was made. The assumption that a reduced (...) frequency or amplitude of detrusor contractions will occur or that they will disappear in patients, where subsequent treatment with parasympatholytics will be successful, was not confirmed. The patients were subsequently treated by a combination of dilthiazem (Diacordin), 3 X 30 mg by the oral route per day and oxyphenonium (Oxyphenon dupl.) 2 X 10 mg by the oral route per day. After evaluation of the therapeutic results the group was divided into two sub-groups. The first one comprised patients where

2669. Correlation between urodynamic test results, perineal ultrasound and degree of stress urinary incontinence. (Abstract)

Correlation between urodynamic test results, perineal ultrasound and degree of stress urinary incontinence. To evaluate whether the results of urodynamic tests and the perineal ultrasound were different between grade 1 and 2 stress urinary incontinence.Forty premenopausal women with a diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence according to urodynamic tests were enrolled in this study. Stress urinary incontinence was defined as urine leakage during stress without detrusor contraction. Twenty (...) patients had grade 1 and 20 had grade 2 stress urinary incontinence. We compared the parameters of uroflowmetry, filling cystometry, urethral pressure profile, dynamic urethral function test, perineal ultrasound and stress urethral axis between grade 1 and 2 levels of stress urinary incontinence.There were no significant differences in age, parity or body mass index between the grade 1 and 2 patients. Uroflowmetry results showed that there were no significant differences in maximal flow rate, average

[The diagnostic and prognostic value of echo-dipyridamole in patients with suspected coronary disease: a comparison with the stress test]. The aim of the study was to assess the relative diagnostic and prognostic accuracy of high-dose dipyridamole echocardiography test (DET: 2D-echo monitoring during dipyridamole infusion up to 0.84 mg/kg over 10') vs maximal symptom limited bicycle exercise electrocardiography test (EET) in patients with chest pain addressed to coronary angiography. We (...) initially considered 477 consecutive patients, meeting the following inclusion criteria: 1) history of chest pain; 2) off antianginal therapy; 3) no previous myocardial infarction and/or obvious regional left ventricular dyssynergy of contraction. All patients were submitted to a DET and EET--on different days and in random order--within 1 week of coronary angiography (which was performed independently of test results). DET could not be performed in 32 patients for a poor acoustic window in resting

-stress-testing methods and contraction stress values of current composites, and discusses the validity of contraction stress studies in relation to results from microleakage tests. The effects of lower curing rates and alternative curing routines on contraction stress values are also discussed, as well as the use of low-elastic-modulus liners. Moreover, studies with experimental dimethacrylate-based composites and recent developments in low-shrinkage monomers are described. (...) Alternatives in polymerization contraction stress management. Polymerization contraction stress of dental composites is often associated with marginal and interfacial failures of bonded restorations. The magnitude of stress depends on composite composition (filler content and matrix composition) and its ability to flow before gelation, which is related to the cavity configuration and curing characteristics of the composite.

2673. Contraction stress determinants in dimethacrylate composites. (Abstract)

Contraction stress determinants in dimethacrylate composites. The influence of composite organic content on polymerization stress development remains unclear. It was hypothesized that stress was directly related to differences in degree of conversion, volumetric shrinkage, elastic modulus, and maximum rate of polymerization encountered in composites containing different BisGMA (bisphenylglycidyl dimethacrylate) concentrations and TEGDMA (triethylene glycol dimethacrylate) and/or BisEMA (...) (ethoxylated bisphenol-A dimethacrylate) as co-monomers. Stress was determined in a tensilometer. Volumetric shrinkage was measured with a mercury dilatometer. Elastic modulus was obtained by flexural test. We used fragments of flexural specimens to determine degree of conversion by FT-Raman spectroscopy. Reaction rate was determined by differential scanning calorimetry. Composites with lower BisGMA content and those containing TEGDMA showed higher stress, conversion, shrinkage, and elastic modulus

2674. Influence of Pelvic Floor Muscle Contraction on the Profile of Vaginal Closure Pressure in Continent and Stress Urinary Incontinent Women. (Abstract)

Influence of Pelvic Floor Muscle Contraction on the Profile of Vaginal Closure Pressure in Continent and Stress Urinary Incontinent Women. We characterized the vaginal pressure profile as a representation of closure forces along the length and circumference of the vaginal wall. Vaginal pressure profile data were used to test the hypothesis that the strength of pelvic floor muscle contractions differs significantly between continent women and women with stress urinary incontinence.Vaginal (...) pressure profile recordings were made in 23 continent subjects and in 10 patients with stress urinary incontinence. The recordings characterized closure forces along the entire length of the vagina and identified differences among the anterior, posterior, left and right sides of the vaginal wall. Using a novel, directionally sensitive vaginal probe we made vaginal pressure profile measurements with the women at rest and during pelvic floor muscle contraction while supine.The nature of the vaginal

Clarification and confirmation of the Knack maneuver: the effect of volitional pelvic floor muscle contraction to preempt expected stress incontinence. The aim of the study was to determine the immediate effect of timing a pelvic muscle contraction with the moment of expected leakage (the Knack maneuver) to preempt cough-related stress incontinence. Women performed a standing stress test using three hard coughs without and then with the Knack maneuver. Volume of urine loss under both conditions (...) was quantified with paper-towel test. Two groups of women were tested: nonpregnant women (n = 64) and pregnant women (n = 29). In nonpregnant women, wetted area decreased from a median (range) of 43.2 (0.2-183.7) cm2 without the Knack maneuver to 6.9 (range of 0 to 183.7 cm2) with it (p < 0.0001); while in pregnant women it decreased from 14.8 (0-169.7) cm2 to 0 (0-96.5) cm2, respectively (p = 0.001). This study confirms the effect from the Knack maneuver as immediate and provides a partial explanation

2676. Contraction stress of flowable composite materials and their efficacy as stress-relieving layers. (Abstract)

Contraction stress of flowable composite materials and their efficacy as stress-relieving layers. The authors compared the polymerization contraction stress produced by flowable resin-based composites with stress values produced by nonflowable composites. They also measured the stress reduction produced by placing a precured layer of flowable composite under a nonflowable composite.The authors first tested four flowable and six nonflowable composite materials for contraction stress (...) in a tensiometer. In the second part of the study, they applied a 1.4-millimeter-thick layer of flowable composite or unfilled resin and precured it in the test apparatus to assess the stress relief produced by a low-modulus material during light curing of a subsequent layer of highly filled composite. Flexural moduli of the precured materials were determined via a three-point bending test.The stress values ranged between 6.04 and 9.10 megapascals. The authors found no significant differences in stress between

2677. Nonstress and contraction stress fetal heart rate monitoring. A randomized trial to determine which is the faster primary test. (Abstract)

Nonstress and contraction stress fetal heart rate monitoring. A randomized trial to determine which is the faster primary test. Antepartum fetal heart rate monitoring can be performed with either the nonstress or contraction stress method. The recent introduction of nipple stimulation as a means of achieving uterine contraction has simplified performance of contraction stress tests and raises the possibility that that test may be a more rapid approach to antepartum fetal heart rate testing than (...) the nonstress test. In order to investigate the time taken to achieve a satisfactory end point of fetal heart rate monitoring, 186 women were randomized to either "intention to perform nonstress test" or "intention to perform nipple stimulation contraction stress test." Neither approach was found to be significantly faster than the other. One-third of all completed contraction stress tests were classified as equivocal and required further investigation or management. The nipple stimulation contraction

2678. Comparison of the nipple stimulation and exogenous oxytocin contraction stress tests. A randomized, prospective study. (Abstract)

Comparison of the nipple stimulation and exogenous oxytocin contraction stress tests. A randomized, prospective study. In a prospective, randomized trial, 103 women underwent a total of 203 antenatal stress tests. One hundred four nipple stimulation contraction stress tests (BSTs) and 99 oxytocin challenge tests (OCTs) were performed. The patient populations were similar for the two groups. Uterine hyperstimulation with abnormal fetal heart rate patterns occurred with 2.9% and 1% of the BSTs (...) and OCTs, respectively. The failure rate for the BST group was 22%. Maternal age and weight, parity and gestational age were not associated with test failure. Only one patient failed more than one BST, but she did not fail every such test. When test time (time from initiation to completion of the test) was compared between the two groups, a significant difference was found when the BST was successful. However, when test time in the total BST group (successful and unsuccessful BSTs followed by an OCT

2680. Patterns of uterine contractions and prolonged uterine activity using three methods of breast stimulation for contraction stress tests. (Abstract)

Patterns of uterine contractions and prolonged uterine activity using three methods of breast stimulation for contraction stress tests. The contraction patterns in 378 breast-stimulated contraction stress tests administered to 213 women are described. The subjects were assigned sequentially to one of four intervention groups: bilateral manual breast massage, unilateral pump stimulation, heating pad stimulation, and placebo. There was a marked increase in the proportion of tests with three (...) to four contractions in 5-minute intervals after the interventions occurred. Twenty-five percent of all tests showed prolonged uterine activity, occurring most frequently in women with postdate gestations using manual massage or breast pump stimulation. The duration of prolonged contractions ranged from 1.5-8 minutes, with 19% lasting from 4.5-8 minutes. There was no difference in the incidence of fetal heart rate abnormalities between tests with and without prolonged uterine activity, and no late
