I read the article by Leber et al. with great interest. However, in my opinion, the clinical implications presented are unacceptable. The proposed sequence of procedures (CT scan, followed in some cases by non-invasive stress test to verify ischaemia, followed by cardiac catheterization) causes unnecessary exposure to radiation, risks of complications,(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The aim of the study is to determine whether age, sex, or the use of drugs with a negative chronotropic effect modifies the sensitivity, specificity, positive or negative predictive value, or positive or negative likelihood ratio of the high-risk criteria used in exercise testing as defined by the Spanish Society of Cardiology(More)
Sudden death during sports activities, although unfrequent, is a tragic event with great impact on both the general and medical communities. The two commonest conditions leading to sudden cardiac death in young athletes are hyperthrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the main cause in the USA, and arrythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, which is the leading(More)
We report the case of a 57-year-old man who underwent orthotopic heart transplantation because of prior myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. The patient developed refractory hypoxemia 7 months after transplantation, secondary to a right to left shunt across a patent foramen ovale related to severe tricuspid regurgitation resulting from repeated(More)
Patients with solid-organ transplants usually present at the emergency department with nonspecific symptoms. The physician should consider a great variety of syndromes and diseases, given the greater risk that solid-organ transplant patients carry because of immunosuppression and transplant-related conditions. Myocardial infarction caused by cardiac(More)
BACKGROUND The appropriate management of patients with an intermediate Duke treadmill score (DTS) is not well established.The aim of this study is to compare several treadmill indexes (American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) High-Risk Criteria for exercise testing,Veterans Affairs and West Virginia Prognostic Score, ST/Heart Rate(More)
We describe a percutaneous intervention performed over the proximal anastomoses of an aortocoronary saphenous vein graft that had been attached to the aorta 3 months before with the St. Jude Medical Symmetry Aortic Connector System. Technical aspects of procedure are discussed, and the experience previously reported in the literature related to this issue(More)
