We analyzed the cases of 1619 patients who underwent surgery for hydatidosis in a chest localization to present a review of this parasitosis, endemic in Southern Mediterranean countries. A lung localization was observed in 1527 patients (94.6%). Extrapulmonary localizations were less common (5.62%) and included 42 heart cysts, 21 primary pleural cysts, 13(More)
In this study the long-term results of 121 repairs for organic lesions of the tricuspid valve are presented, and a attempt is made at selecting the respective indications for valve replacement (VR) and valvoplasty. Tricuspid valve correction was effected by VR in 37 cases (mechanical prosthesis 26, bioprosthesis 11) and by plastic procedures in 84 cases(More)
In this paper we go about the segmentation and analysis of an electrocardiographic (ECG) signal. Firstly, it consists in working out the locations of different characteristic waves of this signal: the QRS complex and the waves P and T, successively and in the order of magnitude and their amplitude. Secondly, we go about the analysis of this signal by the(More)
Nine cases of aneurysm of the ascending aorta responsible for aortic insufficiency were identified between 1975 and 1989. Seven of these fell within the context of Marfan's syndrome, while the other 2 were idiopathic. Aortic leak was found to be massive from the outset in 5 cases and progressively worsened in 2 other cases. Mean follow-up was 138 months.(More)
