Quantitative morphologic findings of the myocardium in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.
This study assesses the relation between quantitative morphologic findings and left ventricular contractile function in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Left ventricularExpand

Reduction of coronary reserve: a mechanism for angina pectoris in patients with arterial hypertension and normal coronary arteries.
The pathogenesis of angina pectoris in patients with left ventricular hypertrophy secondary to arterial hypertension and with normal coronary arteries remains uncertain. We measured coronary bloodExpand

Reduced Coronary Dilatory Capacity and Ultrastructural Changes of the Myocardium in Patients with Angina Pectoris But Normal Coronary Arteriograms
Hemodynamic and metabolic studies were performed in 15 patients without heart disease (controls, group A), in 21 patients with typical stress-induced anginal pain but normal coronary and leftExpand

Determinants of survival in patients with congestive cardiomyopathy: quantitative morphologic findings and left ventricular hemodynamics.
We analyzed data from 68 consecutive patients with congestive cardiomyopathy to evaluate the prognostic significance of quantitative morphologic findings in left ventricular myocardium as comparedExpand

Reduced Coronary Reserve and Ultrastructural Changes of the Myocardium in Patients with Angina Pectoris, Arterial Hypertension, and Normal Coronary Arteries
Several recent studies have presented the paradox of patients who suffer from typical stress-induced anginal pain but have normal coronary and left ventricular angiograms [1, 3, 9, 14, 15]. PatientsExpand

[Giant-cell (Takayasu) arteritis as a cause of renovascular hypertension].
In a young female with renovascular hypertension multiple stenoses affecting both renal arteries, abdominal aorta and left axillary artery could be demonstrated. The elevated blood pressure could beExpand

Microcirculation of the Heart
The purpose of the present report is to describe a new "free-motion" technique for measuring pressures and diameters of microvessels in the intact, beating rabbit heart. Such measurements previouslyExpand

[Iatrogenic foreign bodies in heart (author's transl)].
Two cases are reported of migrating Kirschner wires, which had been inserted for stabilisation of bony defects of the thoracic cage. The wires migrated in both patients to the heart and caused lifeExpand
