The percutaneous treatment of saphenous vein graft lesions containing angiographically massive thrombus is associated with a high risk of distal embolisation and no-reflow. The optimal management for these lesions remains unclear and a challenge to the interventional cardiologist. Five cases are described in whom the risks of percutaneous angioplasty were(More)
Rupture of the left ventricle after myocardial infarction results either in sudden death from cardiac tamponade or, when pericardial adhesions are present, in bleeding that is confined to a limited space, which gradually expands as the blood flows through a small communicating orifice under high pressure, forming a false aneurysm. In three such patients a(More)

Clinical, electrocardiographic, and scintigraphic data were reviewed from 32 patients (18 men and 14 women) who had syndrome X (chest pain, evidence of ischaemia, and normal coronary arteries without coronary vasospasm). The mean (SD) resting left ventricular ejection fraction, determined by first pass radionuclide angiography was 62.6 (9.2)% and was(More)
