In a series of 300 cases whose atrial septal defects were closed (268 with ostium secundum, 27 with ostium primum, and 5 cases with both), arrhythmias were found in 60%. These were usually slow supraventricular arrhythmias caused by substitution (51%), and less commonly rapid supraventricular arrhythmias (27%), extra-systoles (16%), disorders of(More)
20 patients who underwent reconstructive surgery for mitral regurgitation were peroperatively investigated by contrasted bidimensional echocardiography using intraventricular injection of 20 ml of physiologic saline. Before the valvuloplasty, the peroperative quantitation of mitral leakage was in all cases closely correlated with the data obtained(More)
Left ventricular contraction was studied in 20 patients with mitral valve prolapse presenting with chest pain and/or palpitations. In this group of symptomatic patients systolic abnormalities were observed in 11 patients (55 p. 100): segmental hypokinesis was observed in 5 patients, hyperkinetic motion in 3 patients and an association of hyperkinetic and(More)
BACKGROUND Previous work has suggested an association between Chlamydia pneumoniae infection and coronary artery disease. The infection was demonstrated by titers of antibodies--enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or immunofluorescence, and polymerase chain reaction--and by the findings of C. pneumoniae in the atherosclerotic plaque. OBJECTIVES To evaluate(More)
