We present a case of a 53-year-old woman undergoing successful surgical treatment ofcoarcation restenosis after patch grafting in childhood. Despite the optimal result of the operation, normal left ventricle systolic function and coronary angiogram, majority of symptoms, such as angina and dyspnea, persist 16 months after the intervention. In further… (More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The purpose of the study is to compare the repeatability and reproducibility of quantitative and subjective evaluation of elbow humeroulnar incongruity (HUI) using computed tomography (CT) on an in vivo canine model. MATERIAL AND METHODS HUI was evaluated on canine (n = 50) elbow joints (n = 100). The computed tomography of elbow joints… (More)
Care of patients with congenital heart diseases in Czech Republic does not have only important history, falling to the prewar period, but especially systematic and long-term work with excellent results in pediatric patients. With improvements in the care of these patients also improves their survival with the need for continuous care in adulthood including… (More)
The prequisite of better therapeutic results in patients with Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve is more perfect diagnosis not only of the severity of the malformed valve but also of other associated defects incl. the anomalous accessory bundle of Kent which causes the development of dangerous tachydysrhythmias. The authors present their own… (More)
A new morphological-clinical classification was suggested for this type of heart malformations based on confrontation of authors' results with literature. The classification took into consideration appearance of the top of ventricular septum, form of atrioventricular valves, topography of the defect and its relation to the location of conducting system.
Case-history of a four-year-old boy with Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve with WPW syndrome. Severe tricuspid insufficiency and repeatedly occurring tachydysrhythmias soon led to cardiac decompensation and death before the intended cardiac operation. Non-invasive clinical, ECG, X-ray and ECHO examinations correlated with catheterization,… (More)
OBJECTIVE Define the profile of NT-proBNP values in asymptomatic adult patients after radical correction of Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and identify links between possible increase in NT-proBNP and residual echocardiographic findings. METHODOLOGY NT-proBNP samples were taken from and a detailed echocardiographic examination was performed in 21 adult… (More)
In a four-month-old neonate a pericardial teratoma was diagnosed which exerted pressure on the airways, right atrium and large blood vessels. The tumour was removed by operation. It was a simple, mature pericardial teratoma. Supporting cytostatic treatment was administered. Three years after operation the patient is free of signs of relapse of the tumour.
In a group of 47 patients with Ebstein's anomaly followed up on a long-term basis the authors describe the natural course of the disease as well as contemporary diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities. The authors draw attention to typical symptoms of Ebstein's anomaly and emphasize the importance of early diagnosis by two-dimensional echocardiographic and… (More)
