Five patients with scimitar syndrome (three boys, two girls) with a mean age of 3.4 years (range 6 months to 11 years) were studied with two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography. Four-chamber apical and parasternal short- and long-axis views were obtained, in addition to subcostal views. The anomalous drainage was seen entering the inferior vena cava(More)
Within the baking industry, the control of dough properties is required to achieve final product quality and consistency. Traditional methods for dough testing are slow and off-line and do not provide fundamental rheological information. There is therefore a need for the development of fast and on-line instruments capable of providing relevant data for(More)
A child with considerable electrocardiographic (ECG) repolarization abnormalities is reported in whom, after clinical and hemodynamic evaluation, only a large muscular false tendon within the left ventricular cavity was found. The genesis of the ECG changes in such cases is discussed, and the differential diagnosis from apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is(More)
The aberrant left pulmonary artery is a rare disease, producing severe respiratory failure in the neonatal period and early infancy. The diagnosis is easy and mainly done by X-ray. Although the main diagnostic procedure continues to be an elective angiography in the main pulmonary artery, the diagnosis may be confirmed by a contrast computerised axial(More)
The vein of Galen malformation is a rarely recognized cause of congestive heart failure in the newborn. This report describes a newborn who developed severe cardiac failure in the second week of life. An aneurysm of the vein of Galen was noted on the computerized tomography scan, confirming the clinical diagnosis of cerebral arteriovenous fistula. The(More)
