A survey of the 3-decade outcome for patients with giant aneurysms caused by Kawasaki disease.
TLDR
The results focus attention on the need to preserve myocardial perfusion, especially in high-risk patients with bilateral GA, and an understanding of the optimal CABG would be useful in bilateral GA. Expand
Assessment of ampulla (Takotsubo) cardiomyopathy with coronary angiography, two-dimensional echocardiography and99mTc-tetrofosmin myocardial single photon emission computed tomography
TLDR
Coronary angiography did not show stenotic lesions in any patient and findings indicated that coronary microvascular spasm in one causative mechanism of ampulla cardiomyopathy. Expand
Diastolic paradoxic jet flow in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: evidence of concealed apical asynergy with cavity obliteration.
TLDR
Patients with a paradoxic jet flow more often developed systemic embolism, ventricular tachycardia and thallium perfusion abnormalities localized to the apical region, and could be an important marker of concealed apical asynergy and the risk of adverse clinical events. Expand
Serum fatty acid levels, dietary style and coronary heart disease in three neighbouring areas in Japan: the Kumihama study
TLDR
It is indicated that a lower intake of n−6 PUFA and saturated fatty acids has an additional preventive effect on CHD even when the serum level of n −3 PUFA is high because of high dietary fish consumption. Expand
Sustained cavity obliteration and apical aneurysm formation in apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
In ApHCM, sustained CO is an important pathophysiologic condition as well as hypertrophy, ischemia, and prolonged QTc, which are considered jointly related to the development of aneurysm through interactions. Expand
Improved survival of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in the 1990s.
TLDR
Data indicate a significant improvement in the survival of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy after 1990, which may be explained by the change of medical treatment, especially the use of beta-blockers. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging differentiated partial from complete absence of the left pericardium in a case of leftward displacement of the heart.
TLDR
The features of the chest X-ray and echocardiography of this case, which strongly suggested complete absence of the left pericardium, are possibly not always reliable signs and MRI may provide additional useful information, as in this case. Expand
Tetralogy of Fallot, Cardiac Hypertrophy, Pulmonary Hypertension, and Anomalies of Great Vessels in Fetuses and Neonates of WKY/NCrj Rats
TLDR
A constellation of congenital heart disease is genetic in origin, but altered by hemodynamics late in fetal life, with severe pulmonary valve thickening and double aortic arches in WKY fetuses and neonates. Expand
Pulmonary hypertension in type I glycogen storage disease
TLDR
The autopsy revealed a vascoconstrictive type of pulmonary hypertension with plexiform vascular lesions in case 1, and in case 2, there was no evidence of a disorder that could have been the cause of the pulmonary hypertension. Expand
Electrocardiographic score as a predictor of mortality after subarachnoid hemorrhage.
TLDR
The ECG score, a new and simple method of semi-quantification, was a powerful risk predictor in the present patients with SAH, and was the most powerful risk stratifier in age- and sex-adjusted multiple logistic regression analysis. Expand
