We describe the second example of a distinctive clinicopathologic syndrome of severe pulmonary hypertension and interstitial lung disease caused by diffuse smooth muscle proliferation of the lungs (DSMPL) occurring in a 44-year-old man of normal intelligence with no cutaneous or neurological lesions. The smooth muscle proliferation involved the walls of(More)
We sought to determine whether the echocardiographic Doppler parameters of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction predict future heart failure (HF) events and, if so, which parameters best predict HF. We also examined whether the predictive ability of echocardiographic Doppler parameters was related to their prediction of left ventricular end-diastolic(More)
We investigated the influence of > or =70% luminal coronary artery stenosis on regional diastolic deformation at rest using 2-dimensional strain echocardiography. We prospectively imaged patients during/within 24 hours of coronary angiography. Longitudinal systolic (SRs), early (SRe), and late diastolic strain rates, systolic, early, and late diastolic(More)
