In studies of autonomic regulation during orthostatic challenges only a few nonlinear methods have been considered without investigating the effect of gender in young controls. Especially, the temporal development of the autonomic regulation has not yet been explicitly analyzed using short-term segments in supine position, transition and orthostatic phase(More)
A new algorithm is proposed for localization of accessory atrioventricular pathways by use of a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). The polarity of the QRS complex in leads III, V1, and V2 from 102 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome with manifested preexcitation who underwent successful radiofrequency catheter ablation was analyzed. Accessory(More)
In patients with an orthostatic intolerance, the hemodynamic response to standing, may identify an abnormality know as postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome or orthostatic hypotension, that can often be treated without further testing. When the response to standing is normal, tilt-table testing may be useful in making the diagnosis of vasovagal syncope(More)
Several reports have demonstrated that radiofrequency catheter ablation provides effective control of a variety of tachyarrhythmias. This report details the results of radiofrequency catheter ablation in 1,000 consecutive patients with a wide variety of tachyarrhythmias treated in the Instituto Nacional de Cardiología "Ignacio Chavez". Tachyarrhythmias were(More)
Three cases of endocarditis affecting endocardial leads of permanent pacemakers are presented with a review of the literature. Vegetations were identified using transesophageal echocardiography. Infection of pacemaker leads is far less common than infection at the site of the pulse generator with greater morbidity and mortality and generally requiring(More)
The role of hipoxia on A-V conduction was studied in the patients with severe respiratory insufficiency. Intervals of A-V conduction were measured under basal conditions, breathing room air and with increasing atrial rates. Results are compared with those obtained after the administration of 99% oxygen. A-V conduction times were normal in all the patients(More)
UNLABELLED While the circulatory response to orthostatic stress has been already evaluated in Parkinson's disease patients without typical orthostatic hypotension (PD-TOH), there is an initial response to the upright position which is uniquely associated with active standing (AS). We sought to assess this response and to compare it to that seen in young(More)
Over the last decade the surgical treatment of the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome has been well accepted. It is important to make an early diagnosis for surgical success. For this purpose we utilized programmed electrical stimulation to assess the functional characteristics of atrioventricular and ventriculoatrial conduction in our post-operative patients.(More)
We report a 28 year old man with the Brugada syndrome characterised by an electrocardiographic pattern of a right bundle branch block and an ST segment elevation in the right precordial leads as well as syncope. During an exercise test, we observed a normalization of the ST segment in V2+ while in the postexercise phase, the ST segment elevation in the(More)
