UNLABELLED Cardiac angiosarcoma represents a primary cardiac malignancy tumor whose early diagnosis is difficult because of its non specific clinical presentation. We present the case of a 57 years old patient with medium abundance hemoptysis. The chest X ray film and CT scan showed bilateral pulmonary infiltrate without cardiac anomaly. Abdominal(More)
UNLABELLED Myocardial infarction is a common cause of mortality in people with diabetes. The aim of this study was to determine early and mid-term mortality in diabetic patients with myocardial infarction and to determine if hyperglycemia was predictor of mortality. We conducted a retrospective study of 100 diabetic patients compared with 100 non diabetic(More)
We report a case of gastric dilatation in a ventilated 18-year-old woman, which was revealed by the acute onset of hypotension, sinus bradycardia, and complete atrioventricular block. Hypotension and cardiac rhythm disturbances resolved with intravenous injection of atropine, but recurred a few minutes later and required a second bolus of atropine, which(More)
The frequency of pericardial involvement in Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) is high but usually was asymptomatic and cardiac tamponnade was exceptional. We report a case of systemic sclerosis (scleroderma) revealed by cardiac tamponnade. This case illustrate the value of transthoracic echocardiography in the diagnosis of cardiac tamponnade in systémic sclerosis.
There is no data available on the cardiovascular risk of children under 18 years of age in Tunisia, although it is well known that these risk factors present themselves in childhood. The authors performed an epidemiological study based on a representative sample of 793 schoolchildren in the rural region of Sousse, in Tunisia, to determine the incidence of(More)
BACKGROUND The acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are classified among the major causes of mortality in the industrialized countries. The increased angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACEI) activity related to a genetic polymorphism constitutes a hereditary predisposition to these syndromes. AIM Evaluate the ACEI activity in Tunisian patients with coronary heart(More)
INTRODUCTION Oral anticoagulants (OA) are effective in the prevention of cerebrovascular events among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, several studies showed OA to be widely underused in these patients. The purpose of this study was to assess the use of OA and associated factors with non-use of this treatment. METHODS We conducted a(More)
The authors report the case of a 6-year-old girl with multi-organ hydatid disease, revealed by a complication: hydatid cyst of the right atrium. They emphasize the latency and clinical polymorphism of right cardiac sites of hydatid cyst and the severity of its prognosis. The particular site of this right atrial tumour and its relations with the septal(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in persons under the age of 45 years is uncommon. To determine the clinical features in young patients presenting with AMI, we include 38 patients with mean age 35 years who survive from myocardial infarction. This disease is almost associated with cardiovascular risk factors, the most common of which are tobacco abuse(More)
