A 25-year-old man who was known to have Behçet's syndrome and who has no coronary risk factors suffered an acute anterior wall myocardial infarction which was complicated by a ventricular fibrillation. The diagnosis of Behçet's syndrome was based on recurrent thrombophlebitis, genital and oral aphtoses, posterior uveitis, positive pathergy test and HLAB51.(More)
Isolated congenital sick sinusal syndrome on non harmed heart is a rare affection. Its association with an atrio-ventricular block is exceptional. The authors report a case of a 19 year-old patient, with an early history of bradycardia, hospitalised for effort intolerance. His electrocardiogram reveals a high degree sino-atrial block replaced by a(More)
AIMS Conductive disorders following open-heart valvular surgery represent serious complications that may require definitive pacemaker implantation. The natural history of these troubles is not well established thus, controversy persist concerning the timing of pacemaker implantation. In this study we identify the predictive factors of permanent conductive(More)
The permanent ventricular tachycardia (PVT) represent a rare and dangerous arrhythmia that causes prognostic and therapeutic difficulties. Three patients admitted during last year for PVT complicating ischemic cardiomyopathy in two cases and idiopathic cardiomyopathy in the last case. These patients were admitted from emergency department for sustained(More)
BACKGROUND The use of the antivitamines K for more than 50 years, has largely been the proof of its interest: well shown effectiveness, weak cost. However, these drugs are the cause of complications of which most frequent and most serious are the hemorrhagic accidents. AIM To determine the characteristics of the patients hospitalized for grave bleeding(More)
The hypothyroidism and coronary disease are tightly related. Our retrospective study, based upon the data from ten patients with hypothyroidism and coronary disease, aimed to assess the diagnosis, the prognosis and the therapeutic measures in these patients. Our population aged in average 60 years and was almost composed with women. Acute Coronary syndrome(More)
Taking 33 patients having pure MI as a material, the authors find a correlation between regurgitation fraction obtained by calculation of outputs estimated by Touch's method and angiographic values. There is a statistically significant differences (P < 0.001) between regurgitation fraction of grade I to II and grade II to III MI. The ratio mitral integral(More)
UNLABELLED FAST-MI Tunisian registry was initiated by the Tunisian Society of Cardiology and Cardio-vascular Surgery to assess characteristics, management, and hospital outcomes in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS We prospectively collected data from 203 consecutive patients (mean age 60.3 years, 79.8 % male) with STEMI(More)
Within less than a half-century, after the early rising of cardiac pacing, we witness a dramatical in crease of its indications. After the initial aim, which was to prevent transient ischaemic events, and sudden death due to bradycardia, some more physiological objectives have--progressively appeared, such as improvement of patient's quality of life, and(More)
BACKGROUND Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is a primary electrical myocardial disease characterized by exercise- and stress-related ventricular lachycardia manifested as syncope and sudden death usually in child and teenager and was rarely described in adults. The management includes betablockade, with the use of implantable(More)
