A 59-year-old man had a first myocardial infarction in the right coronary artery, followed by an another infarction in the left anterior descending coronary artery. Coronary thrombolysis for both occasions of acute myocardial infarction was successfully performed without severe residual stenosis. In the chronic phase after the second myocardial infarction,… (More)
A 59-year-old woman was admitted with acute inferior myocardial infarction. Cardiac catheterization revealed total occlusion in the right coronary artery and thrombus-like filling defect in the left anterior descending coronary artery. With simultaneous intracoronary urokinase infusion to the right and left coronary arteries, the right coronary artery… (More)
The case of a patient with severe left main trunk disease is presented, in which spasm of the right coronary artery resulted in intraoperative myocardial ischemia and perioperative myocardial infarction. It is suggested that coronary spasm may be a cause of perioperative myocardial infarction, and has to be considered in case of unknown etiology.
No aneurysm of the aortic valve associated with infective endocarditis has yet been reported. This report describes the clinical echocardiographic and pathologic findings in a patient who developed infective endocarditis resulting in aneurysm of the non-coronary cusp with aortic regurgitation. Surgical treatment was performed because of gradual expansion of… (More)
A 53-year-old woman presented with symptoms of dyspnea on exertion and edema of lower extremities. Chronic cardiac tamponade caused by the rupture of the right atrial wall was diagnosed by two-dimensional contrast echocardiography. Autopsy findings revealed primary cardiac hemangiopericytoma.
A 54-year-old man presented with symptoms of exertional syncope. Cardiac amyloidosis was diagnosed by endomyocardial biopsy. Exercise tolerance test revealed a failure of increased heart rate followed by sinus arrest, associated with syncope. Autopsy revealed amyloid deposits in the sinoatrial node.
In order to predict the residual stenosis in coronary thrombolysis, the factors easily obtained from clinical history--age, gender, history of angina before acute myocardial infarction (AMI), family history, hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, smoking, and interval between onset of AMI and recanalization--were observed in 114 patients with… (More)
