BACKGROUND Restenosis after carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a poorly described phenomenon. Studies have reported a variable incidence ranging from 4% to 19.7% at 1 year of follow-up. Doppler Ultrasound (DUS) is now routinely used in the follow-up after CAS and endarterectomy with optimal accuracy in detecting significant restenosis, compared to digital(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a marker of pediatric hypertension and predicts development of cardiovascular events. Electrocardiography (ECG) screening is used in pediatrics to detect LVH thanks to major accessibility, reproducibility and easy to use compared to transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), that remains the standard technique.(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial hemorrhage is the most serious complication of anticoagulant therapy and is itself an absolute contraindication to further treatment. CASE REPORT We present the case of a 78-year-old patient with permanent atrial fibrillation and previous intracranial hemorrhage during oral anticoagulation therapy, who was a candidate for(More)
An intraparenchymal course of the pulmonary venous pathway within one lung in anomalous pulmonary venous connection is a rare and poorly recognized variation. We report three new cases and summarize the remaining 19 known cases of this infrequent anomaly. We expect that this review will call attention to this unusual pattern of pulmonary venous drainage and(More)
BACKGROUND Severe primary mitral regurgitation (MR) carries a significant incidence of mortality and morbidity. Though a number of prognostic factors have been identified, the best timing for mitral valve repair is still debated. We assessed the role of Left Atrial Volume Indexed (LAVI) as predictor of adverse events after mitral valve surgery. METHODS(More)
