Premature obstruction of the foramen ovale is a rare but serious clinical entity. Obstruction can be associated with right ventricular failure, fetal hydrops, tricuspid regurgitation, left heart obstructive defects and supraventricular tachycardia. In most cases, the diagnosis is made at the postmortem examination. The etiology is unknown. We discuss 2(More)
I ntravenous tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) is the only approved treatment for acute ischemic stroke. 1 Imaging is required to exclude intracerebral hemorrhage before thrombolytic therapy, and computerized tomography scanning is the standard imaging selection tool. MRI can also reliably exclude intracerebral hemorrhage, 2 and diffusion-weighted(More)
We report on a case of absent pulmonary valve syndrome in a woman with a history of one healthy child and one child with tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve. The diagnosis was missed at the first ultrasound examination performed at 13 + 5 weeks of gestation and correctly diagnosed at 21 + 5 weeks. Re-evaluation of the ultrasound examination(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS Between March 2006 and June 2008, in the Instituto de Oncología Ángel H Roffo, Universidad de Buenos(More)
PURPOSE To present the predominantly ultrasonographic (initial and follow-up) imaging in a disease that is rare among the Central European paediatric population--and to evaluate the role of ultrasound for initial staging and follow-up under antihelmintic therapy. METHOD The imaging documents as well as the clinical record of a 10-year old Armenian girl(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated fetal heart block is considered as an immunological disorder in the majority of cases. Mothers of affected fetuses often suffer from connective tissue disease (Sjögren syndrome or Lupus erythematodes). All of them test positive for anti-SS-A (anti Ro) and/or anti-SS-B (anti La) antibodies. Once established, third-degree congenital heart(More)
INTRODUCTION During pregnancy eminent cardiovascular changes occur. The aim of the following study was to investigate the course of hemodynamic parameters under increased volume load during pregnancy in women suffering from mild arterial hypertension. METHODS Altogether 47 women (age: 25 +/- 4 years) with mild arterial hypertension detected during(More)
