The relationship between ST segment elevation on the right precordial lead V4R and the hemodynamic, echocardiographic, and myocardial scintigrapic signs suggestive of right ventricular (RV) infarction was studied in 42 patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction. Twenty-two patients had ST segment elevation in V4R. Among these patients, a significant(More)
Fetal arrhythmias form a complicating factor in 1-2% of all pregnancies and in 10% of those cases morbidity or even mortality is encountered. The most frequent occurring arrhythmias are premature atrial contractions (PAC). These are usually benign phenomena which resolve spontaneously, but require some follow-up to exclude the development of(More)
To analyze the behavior of aortic valve gradient (AVG) after ventricular extrasystole (VE), we studied 36 pure valvular aortic stenoses (AS) free of coronary artery disease and obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, in whom basal (B) (74 +/- 32 mm Hg) and catheter-induced post-VE (110 +/- 50 mm Hg) AVG were obtained. In all 26 cases with valve area less(More)
We prospectively studied 110 patients with a first acute myocardial infarction with cross-sectional echocardiography, between 7-10 days post-infarction, to assess the value of semiquantitative segmental contractility score for the first year post-AMI risk stratification. 87 patients had acceptable recordings (40 anterior and 47 inferior infarction). Twelve(More)
OBJECTIVE The routes of lymphatic drainage from a breast cancer are the axilla (the most frequent) and the extra axillary regions. Among the latter, there are the so-called intrammamary lymph nodes (IMLN). This study has aimed to assess the incidence of IMLNs in our patients and study the evolution of these cases with IMLN in the lymphoscintigraphy. (More)
We report 2 infants aged 6 months and one year with an anomalous left coronary artery origin treated surgically at our centre with direct aortic reimplantation of the anomalous coronary. Evolution has been satisfactory, with a great improvement of ventricular function. The mitral incompetence and congestive heart failure have disappeared and myocardic(More)
