OBJECTIVE To compare the methods of right ventricle segmentation in the short-axis and 4-chamber planes in cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and to correlate the findings with those of the tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) method in echocardiography. MATERIAL AND METHODS We used a 1.5T MRI scanner to study 26 patients with diverse(More)
A 50-year-old man with heart failure, systolic dysfunction, and abnormal septal motion underwent ventricular resynchronization. Postoperative clinical and echocardiographic improvement was observed. Several months later, he complained of worsening functional class after a traffic accident. Pacing lead fracture was diagnosed. After replacing the lead,(More)
The main goal of the treatment for hypertensive vascular disease is to reduce the morbidity and mortality that follow the disease. In the patient with heart disease, the choice of antihypertensive treatment will depend on several factors, all of which must be considered prior to it: type of cardiopathy and complications, pharmacokinetics of the(More)
This article presents the program for training in cardiology. The document was elaborated by the National Committee of the Specialty of Cardiology, from the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education, and describes the theoretical and practical aspects of training in cardiology prevailing at present in Spain.
Some patients with unstable angina develop a deep T-wave inversion in ECG leads V1 to V4. It has been suggested that this special ECG pattern is associated with a severe stenosis of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery. We have studied 73 of this patients. All of them had an LAD involvement, nearly always as severe atherosclerotic plaque and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare a semiautomatic segmentation method to quantify the function of both ventricles in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with the manual tracing method. MATERIAL AND METHODS We examined 17 patients with diverse cardiovascular diseases on a 1.5 Tesla MRI unit (Magnetom Symphony Quantum; Siemens Medical Systems,(More)
