PURPOSE Cardiac manifestations of Takayasu's arteritis are rarely reported in the literature. However, these symptoms are not rare and when they do occur, they determine the disease prognosis. Due to its frequency, its severe nature, and even sometimes diagnosis failure, high blood pressure is the major cause of cardiac manifestations. More specific cardiac… (More)
In this paper, the authors report 8 cases of Takayasu disease presenting in the form of hypertension, observed in the Cardiology of Ibn Rochd University Hospital in Casablanca between 1983 and 1995. The majority of cases presented with renovascular HT, secondary to unilateral or bilateral renal artery stenosis. More rarely, the patients presented proximal… (More)
Hydatid cyst of the heart is an uncommon lesion. The infection is most common in sheep-raising areas of the world. We report a rare case of cardiac hydatid cyst revealed by complete heart block, which was removed with the patient under cardiopulmonary bypass. This case stresses the importance of echocardiography for the diagnosis of cardiac echinococcosis.
Authors report 10 observations of cardiac hydatid cyst collected to cardiovascular unit of Ibn Rochd hospital in Casablanca during last 7 years. Clinical investigation included in all cases chest X ray, ECG and ultrasonography (US). A computed tomography (CT) scan was performed in 6 cases, magnetic resonance imaging in four cases, transoesophageal US in two… (More)
This retrospective study was based on 157 cases of infectious endocarditis observed in the Cardiology department of Ibn Rochd Hospital in Casablanca between January 1983 and December 1994. The mean age of the patients was 27.5 years (11 to 65 years) with a male predominance (62.8%). Infectious endocarditis was secondary to rheumatic valvular heart disease… (More)
Post-traumatic aneurysms are extremely rare in the infant population. We report a case of delayed abdominal aortic aneurysm that appeared in a 5-year-old female, admitted 5 months previously with contusions to the abdomen.
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the special features of cardiovascular effects in connective tissue disorders through a group of fifteen cases observed over a period of ten years. The group consisted of eleven cases of Marfan syndrome (or Marfan-like syndrome), two cases of pseudoxanthoma elasticum and two cases of Ehlers-Danlos disease. The… (More)
A 26-year-old woman underwent bypass surgery for biiliac aneurysm of unknown origin. The aorta was cross clamped below the renal arteries to insert a tube graft between the infra-renal aorta and the external iliac arteries with implantation of the internal iliac arteries on the prosthesis. Due to leakage from the posterior area of the proximal anastomosis,… (More)
The authors report a series of cardio-pericardial metastases presenting acutely with tamponade. There were 14 men and 9 women with an average age of 39 years. The primary tumour was mainly bronchial in the men (5 cases: 20.8%) and breast (3 cases: 16.6%) or uterine (4 cases: 16.6%) in the women. The other malignancies were blood dyscrasias (5 NHL and 1 MHL)… (More)
Behçet's disease is a chronic vascularitis characterized by recurrent ulcers of the mouth and genitalia and iridocyclitis. Vascular complications involving venous thrombosis and arterial lesions are rare. We report a case of Behçet's disease in 30 year-old man revealed by a voluminous right femoral aneurysm and a thrombosed aneurysm of the left iliofemoral… (More)
