1 Abstract One of the points that differentiates most Linux distributions nowadays is the meta-installer. Meta-installers are software programs that run over RPM / DEB / TGZ installation systems, providing for automatic resolution of dependencies. Meta-installers like Apt-get, Smart or Yum are used widely and are starting to have more features. A framework(More)
Evaluation of the second generation of a bioresorbable everolimus drug-eluting vascular scaffold for treatment of de novo coronary artery stenosis: six-month clinical and imaging outcomes. Findings of intravascular ultrasound during acute stent thrombosis. Coronary responses and differential mechanisms of late stent thrombosis attributed to first-generation(More)

A 60-year-old male with previous hypertension, left ventricle hypertrophy, and coronary artery disease was referred for stress echocardiography because of exertional chest pain. The electrocardiogram revealed deep T-wave inversion in the anterolateral leads. Contrast echocardiography was notable for an apical filling defect consistent with the apical form(More)
Gerbode defect is a rare type of left ventricle to right atrium shunt. It is usually congenital in origin, but acquired cases are also described, mainly following infective endocarditis, valve replacement, trauma or acute myocardial infarction. We report a case of a 50-year-old man who suffered an extensive and complex infective endocarditis involving a(More)
The case of a 19-year-old female with a neonatal diagnosis of Tetralogy of Fallot and complete atrioventricular (AV) septal defect is described. She had had a corrective surgery at the age of 6. She did well afterwards despite recent complain of fatigability with mild arterial hypoxaemia. Transoesophageal echocardiography depicted a 12 mm atrial septal(More)
A 56-year-old man had been referred to our department in 1978 at age 22 with a diagnosis of congenital cyanotic heart disease, and had undergone ventricular (VSD) and atrial septal defect (ASD) closure and repair of pulmonary valve stenosis. The chest X-ray showed mesocardia. He began to experience signs and symptoms of heart failure in 1992, with a(More)
Recurrence of cardiac myxoma is a rare condition, observed in about 3% of patients in sporadic cases, although it is more frequent in familial ones. Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain such recurrence, and the importance of increased vascularization as a facilitating feature is the subject of debate. The authors report the case of a(More)
