In this paper, the authors report the case of an 8-year-old boy with an isolated slit in his mitral valve, and who did not have a heart murmur detectable either by auscultation or by phonocardiography and who had no symptoms of heart failure. Two-dimensional echocardiography, with a left parasternal direction, in a transversal view revealed the presence of(More)
The aim of this retrospective study of 50 deep vein thromboses (DVT) of the lower limbs in patients aged 80 and over (35 women, including 2 with bilateral DVT and 13 men), mean age 83.37 +/- 2.72, hospitalised in a department of cardiology, was to assess the diagnostic value of ultrasound investigations, clinical parameters and results of treatment of(More)
A 78 year old woman with unstable angina due to significant stenosis of the left main coronary artery and occlusion of the right coronary artery was treated medically for 29 months because of a surgical contraindication. Resistance to drug therapy led to referral for complex angioplasty of the left main, left anterior descending and left circumflex(More)
The authors present a case of acute renal ischemia resulting from embolism of its main artery on the occasion of the transient interruption of anticoagulant treatment for dental extraction, in a patient bearing a Björk-Shiley valvular prosthesis in the mitral position. Its progression is marked by the complete repermeabilisation of the artery under heparin(More)
12 patients (10 men and 2 women), of 59 +/- 10.5 years of age, including 4 with a patent cardiomyopathy and 7 with a cardiothoracic index higher than 0.52, presenting a permanent and complete atrio-ventricular block and fitted with a two-chambers cardiac stimulator, underwent a carotid output study by Doppler-sonography. The objective of this study was to(More)
This study compares two groups of patients: Group I with 44 patients who suffered recent acute myocardial infarction and Group II: 40 control subjects. In both groups, 2D Doppler echocardiography was performed to detect carotid atheroma, to determine the respective roles of vascular risk factors for two sites of atherosclerosis. Carotid atheroma affected 73(More)
This retrospective study involved 37 subjects who were examined by means of intravenous digitalised angiography, vascular ultrasonography and spectral analysis of the Doppler signal. The last two examinations were found to give the most precise images and functional information. The concordances between angiography and ultrasonography on the one hand and(More)
