We tried to establish the incidence of silent myocardial ischemia (SMI) in the general population and also in patients with recognised ischemic heart disease. For this, purpose 2, 375 stress tests (ST) with Bruce protocol were reviewed, 364 were positive and those patients were divided in two groups: group I with SMI during the ST and group II with(More)
In 121 patients (93 males, mean age 53.9 years), percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) of 140 lesions was performed as treatment of symptomatic, single or multiple vessel disease, with the following clinical syndromes: stable angina pectoris (Group I) in 59 cases (48.8%), unstable angina (Group II) in 40 (33%), and angina or residual(More)
Rupture of the myocardium is often a catastrophic complication of myocardial infarction with a poor prognosis in the short term. The occurrence of more than one myocardial rupture is a rare condition, and has been published in most cases as a necropsy finding. The purpose of this communication is to report one case of double rupture of the myocardium,(More)
Heart failure is one of the most important causes of death worldwide. Heart transplant is the last effective alternative when the medical and surgical treatments have failed in patients with end stage heart failure, giving them an 80% one year survival rate. Unfortunately, during the outcome, the heart transplant patients can develop complications such as(More)
The classic electrocardiographic abnormalities observed in massive or submassive thromboembolism in the absence of preexistent cardiac or pulmonary disease are: S1Q3T3 pattern, right axis deviation, "pulmonary" P wave, ST segment depression or elevation, subepicardic ischemia and transient right bundle branch block. Left axis deviation due to pulmonary(More)
Percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) with the Inoue balloon catheter (IBC) was performed in 11 adult, symptomatic patients with moderately severe, pure of predominant mitral stenosis (MS). The transseptal approach and a valvuloplasty technique of progressive and controlled valvular dilatation were utilized. The procedure failed in one(More)
