A case of epithelioid haemangioendothelioma sited at pulmonary valve, with an excrescence growing invading pulmonary artery troncus and its principal branches, in a 56-year-old woman is reported. The evolutive behavior simulated some clinical situations which made difficult the diagnosis: a mild-moderate pulmonary stenosis, a general syndrome, and, finally,(More)
We report the case of a young man with severe pulmonary hypertension caused by multiple thromboembolism subsequent to congenital protein C deficit. During the previous phase to haematological treatment we showed a very poor response to vasodilators evaluated by Doppler-Echocardiography. The etiological diagnosis was confirmed and initialized the(More)
Four consecutive years (1987-1990) outpatients attendance at a cardiology clinic was recorded in a district hospital with a catchment area of 200,000 inhabitants. The aim being to identify and evaluate the demand for cardiology consultations. A system for recording diagnoses was developed, based on the WONCA. The total number of consultations was 26,273,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Exercise Doppler echocardiography allows measure valvular gradient during exercise, that could be useful in the prescription of physical activity in patients with a prosthetic aortic valve. METHODS Exercise Doppler echocardiography was performed in 50 patients (mean age 53 +/- 12 years) with normally-functioning aortic(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of changes in preload induced by nitrates on calculated mitral valve area by Doppler pressure half-time. Forty patients (mean age 51 +/- 10 years), 23 with mitral stenosis, ten with mechanical prosthesis and seven with bioprosthesis were studied by Doppler echocardiography. Twelve were in sinus rhythm(More)
