A mass lesion occupying the left ventricle was noted on a screening CT scan in a 42-year-old man with a history of malignant melanoma. Subsequent echocardiography and cardiac MR imaging provided further hemodynamic and anatomic characterization of the lesion. These studies were also essential in guiding the proper surgical approach to allow extensive(More)
To investigate possible autonomic sequelae of ACE-inhibition, the authors studied a group of 33 male post-infarction patients who were randomly assigned to a 1-year ACE-inhibition (15 patients) or placebo therapy (18 patients). HRV measurement sessions were 2 weeks after discontinuation of this therapy. The authors computed, in a 5 minute supine and in a(More)

BACKGROUND A peak negative myocardial velocity gradient (MVG) across the left ventricular wall is an important indicator of diastolic performance. The reproducibility of MVG measurements by color M-Mode tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) is still unsatisfactory, restraining its use in clinical practice. Aim of the study was to improve the reproducibility of(More)

BACKGROUND ST segment depression on the electrocardiogram during the exercise treadmill test (ETT) is used as a predictor of coronary artery disease (CAD), although it is recognised that both false-positive and false-negative results limit the value of this procedure. Although adenosine does not produce an inotropic or chronotropic effect upon the(More)
