The frequent association of pulmonary hypertension with symptomatic mitral stenosis has stimulated much investigation concerning its significance and the mechanism of its production. Two types are now recognized: passive hypertension, where the increased pressure in the left atrium and pulmonary veins and capillaries produced by the stenosed mitral valve is(More)
The description of familial cardiomegaly by Evans (1949) has thrown some light on the group of patients in whom cardiac enlargement, for which there appears to be no adequate clinical explanation, is the main physical finding. The purpose of this paper is to describe a family showing evidence of a cardiac abnormality affecting five ofnine siblings and one(More)

This has been a significant limiting factor in the advancement of our understanding of the mechanisms and(More)
