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)
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)
