Cardiovascular mortality in uremic patients treated by hemodialysis overrates ten times cardiovascular mortality in general population. Approximatively 40% of patients on iterative hemodialysis die from cardiac diseases, half of cases by sudden death. Several risk factors for sudden death are well known: QTc interval prolongation, decrease of RR interval(More)
Though sudden cardiac death accounts for as much as 15% of all cause mortality in uremia, reports concerning advanced A-V block, requiring permanent cardiac pacing in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) hemodialysed (HD) patients are very few. This is the first long term prospective study reporting on systematic permanent pacemaker implantation, in a cohort of(More)

RVI is usually associated to a left ventricular (postero-inferior) myocardial infarction. Its occurrence as an isolated entity is extremely infrequent. Clinical signs suggesting the diagnosis are: predominance of right ventricular failure, Kussmaul's sign and rupture of the interventricular septum. The most sensitive diagnostic method is 2D-ECHO (51%(More)
In 94/116 (81%) cases of pure and isolated mitral stenosis (MS), ECO-2D permitted the correct determination of the surface of the mitral opening (SMO). The cases were divided in terms of the SMO size into: extended MS (SMO greater than 2 cm2, n = 28), moderate MS (SMO between 1.1 and 2 cm2, n = 54), and narrow MS (SMO less than or equal to 1 cm2, n = 12).(More)
The paper presents the morphoclinical picture in cardiac amyloidosis to a 50 years old man admitted at Iasi Cardiology Center with progressive chronic cardiac failure, the patient having recent history of restrictive cardiomyopathy. It was made a complete cardiovascular evaluation including the right cardiac catheterization for endomyocardial biopsy. The(More)
The paper presents the case of a 43 year old female patient with multi-malformations syndrome (facio-auriculo-vertebral syndrome), distinguished by alterations of the skeleton, face, sensorial organs and the heart. The syndrome is dominant at young ages and scarce at adults, and the explanation of the favorable evolution could be the lack of severe visceral(More)
The 78 patients with mitral insufficiency studied in the present paper were chosen taking into consideration the following: regurgitant apex holosystolic or mesotelesystolic murmur, noise 3 and the dilation of the left atrium and/or left ventricle at Echo-20. The patients were investigated clinically, ECG, phonocardiographically and echographically (2D).(More)
