endocardial cushions
elevations on the atrioventricular canal of the embryonic heart which later help partition the heart. Defective development contributes to several cardiac anomalies, including ventricular septal defect and atrioventricularis communis.
endocardial fibroelastosis
the accumulation of collagen and elastic fibers in the endocardium, together with left ventricular hypertrophy dilatation, is an inherited, primary cardiac anomaly in Burmese cats.
endocardial fibrosis
occurs with cardiac dilatation or hypertrophy. In cats, leads to restrictive cardiomyopathy.
endocardial splitting
a complication of chronic valvular insufficiency and congestive cardiomyopathy in dogs. May be partial or full thickness; can occur on the interatrial septum, producing an acquired septal defect, or elsewhere causing hemopericardium.
endocardial tube
formed from the cardiogenic plate in the developing embryo, this forms the primordium of the truncus arteriosus, the atrium and the ventricles; it is later invested by the myocardium.

We propose that the success rate of a hybrid atrial fibrillation ablation procedure can increase for both persistent AF (PeAF) and long-standing persistent AF (LSPeAF) by having the endocardial approach precede the surgical approach, which most centers should be able to perform.
As we described in the case reports presented in this review, these other options are endocardial resection, repair of the aneurysm, and radiofrequency/cryoablation [27].
There is a significant positive correlation between the activities of the endocardial and subendocardial iNOS and eNOS with ventricular contractile performance which suggests a beneficial effect of NO released from the endothelial cells in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy.
7 cm CVRL buffalo foetus the final closure of the interventricular foramen was possible by masses of endocardial cushions tissue from three sources--interventricular septum, endocardial cushions, and truncoconal ridges.
Even so, there is always need to distinguish LVNC from prominent normal ventricular trabeculations, false tendons and aberrant bands, as well as from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, endocardial fibroelastosis, myocarditis, apical thrombus or tumor, all of which have been described as wrong initial diagnoses in patients with LVNC.
The subsequent formation of the atrial septa, the endocardial cushions, and the ventricular septum divides the tube into four chambers.

They address tissue effects, cryotechnology, and clinical applications of procedures like ablation for atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT) and atrial flutter and fibrillation, septal pathways, balloon-based and endocardial cryoablation, epicardial cryoablation for patients undergoing mitral valve surgery, and cryoablation of ventricular tachycardias, as well as history and mechanisms.
This ability of the electronics to stretch is important because the researchers print all the necessary medical devices on a section of a standard endocardial balloon catheter (a thin, flexible tube) where the wall is thinner than the rest.
