OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine outcomes in pregnant women with pre-existing coronary artery disease (CAD) or following an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) including myocardial infarction (MI). BACKGROUND The physiological changes of pregnancy can contribute to myocardial ischaemia. The pregnancy risk for women with pre-established CAD(More)
Pulmonary hypertension during pregnancy is associated with considerable risks of maternal mortality and morbidity. Our systematic review of the literature on the use of targeted treatments for pulmonary arterial hypertension during pregnancy indicates a considerable decrease of mortality since a previous review in 1998 (16% v 38%), and a further(More)
The risk of manifestations of ischaemic heart disease (IHD) in fertile women is elevated during pregnancy and the post-partum period. With increasing maternal age and a higher prevalence of cardiac risk factors, the incidence of IHD during pregnancy is rising. However, information in the literature is scarce. We therefore performed a retrospective cohort(More)
BACKGROUND Procedural sedation for painful procedures in the emergency department (ED) can be accomplished with various pharmacological agents. The choice of the sedative used is highly dependent on procedure- and patient characteristics and on personal- or local preferences. METHODS We conducted a multicenter retrospective cohort study of procedural(More)
With increasing rates of in-hospital cardiac arrest, improving resuscitation outcomes is essential. Mechanical chest compressors seem to be related to improved outcome in out-of hospital cardiac arrest; however, the literature on its use in in-hospital cardiac arrest is scarce. We used the Medline public database to systematically review patient outcomes(More)
OBJECTIVE To present a case of ventricular tachycardia following naloxone administration and to review current literature concerning ventricular tachycardia associated with naloxone. METHODS We present a case and review the literature concerning ventricular tachycardia (VT) as a complication of naloxone administration. RESULTS In our patient, a 44-year(More)
INTRODUCTION The risk of acute myocardial infarction in young women is low, but increases during pregnancy due to the physiological changes in pregnancy, including hypercoagulability. Ischaemic heart disease during pregnancy is not only associated with increased maternal morbidity and mortality, but also with high neonatal complications. Advancing maternal(More)
An anomalous origin of a coronary artery (AOCA) is the second most common cause of non-traumatic sudden cardiac death in young athletes. Patients with a malignant course of an AOCA of the right coronary artery only need surgical correction when myocardial ischaemia is detected. An AOCA and its malignant or benign course can be detected by coronary(More)

In the November edition of this Journal, colleagues Calle et al. described a very interesting case of maternal mortality after cardiac arrest in a woman with situs inversus [1]. While their article mainly focusses on the wrongful delivery of shocks by the AED in this woman, possibly related to her situs inversus, I would like to address two other very(More)
