OBJECTIVE Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a myocardial disorder characterised clinically by ventricular arrhythmias that can cause cardiac arrest and morphologically by fatty or fibro-fatty myocardial atrophy of the right ventricle. In vivo tissue characterisation without endomyocardial biopsy would be useful. The aim of this study(More)
Anatomic and electrocardiographic correlations in a case of primary cardiac rhabdomyosarcoma are examined. Interatrial and atrioventricular conduction disturbances were associated with multiple lesions involving the alleged internodal pathways, together with atrial-atrioventricular nodal connections. The clinicopathologic findings seem to be consistent with(More)
Electrophysiologic and histopathologic correlation has been carried out in a patient with scleroderma heart disease, affected by syncopal seizures, who died of recorded ventricular fibrillation. The electrophysiological investigation disclosed dysfunction of sinoatrial conduction, revealed by sinoatrial blocks and by an abnormal return cycle pattern after(More)
We examined association of inducible myocardial perfusion defects with cardiorenal biomarkers, and of diminished left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) with kidney injury marker plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL). Patients undergoing nuclear myocardial perfusion stress imaging were divided into 2 groups. Biomarkers were analyzed(More)
