Sudden Death as a Complication of Anomalous Left Coronary Origin From the Anterior Sinus of Valsalva: A Not‐So‐Minor Congenital Anomaly
TLDR
The first case where this anomaly was recognized in a 14-year-old boy and a surgical attempt was made to correct the problem by creating a non-collapsible funnel-like opening into the left coronary artery is presented. Expand
Sudden Death in Young Athletes
TLDR
In this series of young athletes, sudden death was usually due to structural cardiovascular disease, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was a frequent cause of sudden death; atherosclerotic coronary heart disease was relatively uncommon. Expand
The declining risk of post-transfusion hepatitis C virus infection.
TLDR
The incidence of post-transfusion hepatitis C has decreased markedly since the implementation of donor screening for surrogate markers and antibodies to HCV and the trend toward decreasing risk with increasingly stringent screening of donors was statistically significant. Expand
Intravenous pyogenic granuloma: A study of 18 cases
TLDR
The authors' observations suggest that IVPG develops in or adjacent to the wall of the involved vein, and probably receives its blood supply from a small artery that enters the lesion in the region of the stalk. Expand
Sarcoidosis of the heart. A clinicopathologic study of 35 necropsy patients (group 1) and review of 78 previously described necropsy patients (group 11).
TLDR
Most patients with cardiac sarcoidosis have little or no clinical evidence of dysfunction of an organ system other than the heart, and usually the course in patients with extensive cardiac sarCOidosis is not prolonged. Expand
Immunohistochemistry of matrix metalloproteinases and their inhibitors in thoracic aortic aneurysms and aortic valves of patients with Marfan's syndrome.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the defect in fibrillin-1 in Marfan's syndrome leads to formation of elastin that is abnormally aggregated and more easily degraded by MMPs than is normalElastin, and progressive destruction of connective tissue by these enzymes, and development of TAAs and valvular lesions. Expand
Acute takeoffs of the coronary arteries along the aortic wall and congenital coronary ostial valve-like ridges: association with sudden death.
TLDR
It is suggested that aortic root dilation may compress coronary arteries with acute angle takeoff and that ostial valve-like ridges may act as occlusion valves and cause acute obstruction of the proximal coronary artery and lead to sudden death. Expand
Cardiac rhabdomyoma: a clinicopathologic and electron microscopic study.
TLDR
Cardiac rhabdomyomas derive from cardiac muscle cells and appear to represent hamartomas rather than true tumors. Expand
