Marfan syndrome (MFS) is a genetic disorder that affects multiple organs. Mortality imposed by aortic aneurysm and dissections represent the most serious clinical manifestation of MFS. Progressive pathological aortic root enlargement as the result of degeneration of microfibril architecture and consequential loss of extracellular matrix integrity due to(More)
Aggressive intravenous and oral dual antiplatelet therapy has established primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) as the standard of care for acute myocardial infarction. Clopidogrel is currently the thienopyridine of choice for dual antiplatelet therapy in patients treated with PCI. The dose regime and duration of therapy of clopidogrel has(More)
Percutaneous access to the pericardial space serves both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Multiple approaches have been described, which include the apical, sub-xiphoid, trans-atrial, and trans-bronchial techniques. Occasionally, in the presence of both left pleural effusion and posterior pericardial effusion, echocardiographically guided(More)
Recent numerical studies were focused on the modeling of flow in patient-specific left ventricle (LV); however, the mitral valve (MV) was usually excluded. In this study, both patient-specific LV and MV were modeled to achieve a more realistic intraventricular flow. Cardiac MRI images were acquired from a pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) patient and a(More)
A 56-year-old patient with a history of Parkinson's disease presented with palpitations and an apparently irregular narrow-complex tachycardia on electrocardiogram. The discrepancy in ventricular rate between the limb and precordial leads was the result of myopotentials from his tremors mimicking the QRS complexes in the limb leads. These myopotentials can(More)
BACKGROUND Persistent truncus arteriosus is a rare congenital condition with which survival into adulthood is dismal without surgery. This is the oldest patient reported to our knowledge demonstrating the feasibility of assessing operability in persistent truncus arteriosus with unilateral pulmonary stenosis, and performing full corrective surgery in(More)
