Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a rare cause of congestive heart failure which develops in the last month of pregnancy or during five months postpartum in women without previously known cardiac disease. Intraventricular thrombi are no unusual and can be identified by echocardiography. We report the case of a woman with peripartum cardiomyopathy whose(More)
Coronary artery aneurysms are a relatively infrequent finding with an incidence of 1-2% per year. The most frequent cause is atherosclerosis and, in that case, they are always associated to stenosis of coronary arteries. We reviewed the coronary angiographic studies performed in the past seven years and we identified six patients that were admitted with an(More)
INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE The purpose was assessing the usefulness of exercise digitalized echocardiography for the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-eight patients, with suspected artery coronary disease, underwent both a exercise echocardiography with treadmill Bruce protocol and a coronary arteriography, within a period(More)
Severe thoracic trauma is a common cause of admission in Intensive Care Units; then heart injury is not a rare finding. We present a case of post-traumatic interventricular dissection and ventricular aneurysm secondary to thoracic trauma caused by traffic accident. We think that ventricular septum injury is a rare finding after chest trauma. Two-dimensional(More)
Cardiogenic shock continues to be a clinical situation which is related with high mortality. Although its etiology is varied, the most frequent cause is an acute myocardial infarction. The poor prognosis of cardiogenic shock can be favourably modified with the diagnosis of the underlying cause followed by the stabilization of the patient and early(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Drug eluting stents have demonstrated their superiority versus bare metal stents in the reduction of restenosis and major adverse cardiac events. Most studies do not identificate differences between rapamycin and paclitaxel eluting stent. PATIENTS AND METHOD Retrospective study. We identified all patients treated with rapamycin(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Elderly patients with acute coronary syndromes, particularly elderly women, suffer higher mortality and more morbidity than their younger counterparts. We try to document the outcome, treatment received and prognostic factors in this group. PATIENTS AND METHOD All data for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in women aged(More)
