BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We tested the hypothesis that fibrin structure/function is unfavorably altered in patients with cryptogenic ischemic stroke. METHODS Ex vivo plasma fibrin clot permeability, turbidimetry, and efficiency of fibrinolysis were determined in 89 patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) and a history of first-ever stroke, 58 patients with(More)
Non-compaction myocardium of the left ventricle (LVNC) is a genetically heterogeneous congenital cardiomyopathy characterised by excessive prominent trabeculations and deep intertrabecular recesses which communicate with the left ventricular cavity. Echocardiography plays a pivotal role as a first line diagnostic tool of this rare abnormality. We presented(More)
A case of a 50-year-old man admitted to the cardiology department due to massive infective endocarditis is presented. Diagnosis was confirmed by further investigations and patient was referred to cardiosurgery department. The surgery revealed destruction of mitral, tricuspid and aortic valve, thus three bioprostheses were implanted. The treatment was(More)
Ischaemic stroke in thromboembolic mechanism may be a first sign of neoplastic disease, as in the presented case of a 56-year-old woman. Progressive trombocytopenia, anaemia with reticulocytosis and schistocytes in peripheral blood smear, elevated serum LDH activity as well as coexisting myocardial infarction initially suggested Moschcowitz syndrome.(More)
Intraventricular septum (IVS) rending from left ventricular wall after acute myocardial infarction is a rare and dramatic mechanical complication. We describe a patient, who survived after rending of IVS from left ventricular inferoposterior wall after acute myocardial infarction. This complication was diagnosed using transthoracic and transesophageal(More)
We describe a patient with a severe, neoplastic pulmonary embolism due to primary cancer of the pancreas. The 40-year-old male was admitted to the haematology department with an initial diagnosis of lymphoma. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a mass in the right atrium. Transoesophageal echocardiography was performed and revealed two moving tumours: the(More)
Subacute ascending aortic dissection following open heart surgery is a rare but potentially fatal complication. It is associated with dilatation of the aortic root or cystic medial necrosis. We present associated a case of a 65-year old patient with non-fatal ascending aortic dissection after coronary artery bypass grafting using extracorporeal circulation.
A case of acute severe mitral regurgitation with serious hemodynamic impairment in the setting of an inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction is presented. Both transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated a posteriorly directed eccentric jet of severe mitral regurgitation with flail anterior mitral valve leaflet. The rupture of the(More)
Detection of contractility abnormalities during stress echocardiography could affect prognosis after myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of the study was to examine the prognostic value of dipyridamole stress echocardiography (E-DIP) in patients (pts) who survived the first Q-wave uncomplicated MI. The study group consisted of 137 pts--124 males and 13(More)
