In order to assess incidence and time of occurrence of pulmonary vascular disease, the lungs of 49 patients were studied histologically. Thirty-four lung specimens were obtained at autopsy, and 15 were open lung biopsies. Patients consisted of 24 males and 25 females ranging in age from 10 days to 14 years (median 9 months); 37 had Down's syndrome. Overall(More)
To assess the influence of the degree of revascularization on long-term results with angioplasty in multivessel disease, 151 consecutive patients with double-vessel disease and successful angioplasty in at least one vessel were prospectively followed up for a mean of 14 months (range 6 to 30 months) with clinical evaluation, an exercise stress test, and(More)
Cross-sectional echocardiographic images from 26 patients presenting pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum were compared with anatomical findings in specimens having the same anomaly. The echocardiographic study was based on a subcostal approach using oblique projections, and specimens were cut in the same planes. Patients were classified into(More)
To ascertain the incidence of aortic dissection, we retrospectively studied the data base of our hospital (Ospedale di Treviso-ULSS n 10). The population in the Treviso area is well defined as a geographic settlement and was sufficiently stable from a demographic point of view in the period examined (1976-1988). Patients were selected on the basis of(More)
Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) of complex coronary lesions (plaque ulceration and/or thrombus) has an increased risk of procedural complications. To assess the influence of these angiographic features on immediate and long-term results of PTCA, we prospectively compared the success rate, incidence of procedural complications, and(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary bifurcation lesions represent a difficult problem regularly confronting interventional cardiologist, in part due to the lack of dedicated device. OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of the Tryton Side Branch Stent (Tryton Medical, Durham, NC, USA), a dedicated bare metal stent deployed in conjunction with(More)
To evaluate the reliability of cineangiography in identifying some morphologic characteristics of type A aortic dissection, the angiograms of 36 consecutive patients were retrospectively revised and compared with the surgical of necropsy findings. The following features were examined: site and extension of intimal tear (s); extension of the wall dissection;(More)
OBJECTIVE Pulmonary vein (PV) disconnection by radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation has been reported to cure atrial fibrillation (AF). Different techniques have been proposed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the technical limitations of both anatomical and electrophysiological approaches. METHODS A total of 110 PVs were ablated in 26 consecutive(More)
