Eighteen patients who presented with severe aortic regurgitation and dilatation of the ascending aorta were found to be formes frustes of Marfan's syndrome and formed the basis for this clinicogenetic study. All had aortic valve replacement and reconstruction of part of the ascending aorta. The diagnosis was confirmed by histological examination of the(More)
We obtained echocardiographic measurements of interventricular septal and posterior left ventricular wall thickness in 100 apparently normal subjects in whom there was no evidence or history of coronary artery disease, hypertension or prolapsing mitral valve. Subjects were divided into five age groups of 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60-70 years and there(More)
The value of exercise testing in detecting myocardial ischaemia resulting from coronary atheroma remains controversial. In order to increase the reliability of exercise testing, all its components (asymptomatic, haemodynamic, and electrocardiographic) have been scrutinised. In this study, concerned only with the electrocardiographic response to exercise,(More)

T wave and ST segment abnormalities in 20 asymptomatic men aged 18 to 55 were investigated because they were identical with myocardial ischaemic changes, and the professional livelihood of the subjects was jeopardised. Coronary arteriograms showed unobstructed arteries in all except one in whom a 50 per cent lesion of the left anterior descending artery was(More)
