Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is characterized by a great variety of clinical manifestations and morphologic patterns. Hemodynamic classification in obstructive and nonobstructive forms may be clinically relevant since, although many patients have disabling symptoms in the absence of a pressure gradient, in the subset of patients who do have a gradient,(More)
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a complex and heterogeneous disease. Although most patients experience just a few symptoms, and have a good prognosis, there are others whose symptoms are severe and progressive, determined by different pathophysiological elements such as diastolic dysfunction, myocardial ischemia, arrhythmias and subaortic obstruction.(More)
Aneurysmal dilatation of one or more of the sinuses of Valsalva (SVA) is a rare cause of coronary insufficiency. We describe one case of unruptured and partially thrombosed right sinus of Valsalva aneurysm of which the first sign was acute inferior myocardial infarction in a 40-year-old man while reviewing the literature, we found 44 reported cases of sinus(More)
Acute idopathic pericarditis can be accompanied by myocarditis, and in all types of acute pericarditis there are electrocardiographic signs of myocardial lesions. In order to determine the severity of the myocardial disease in acute idiopathic pericarditis, a prospective study has been carried out in a group of 25 patients with this diagnosis. The clinical(More)
The marked increase in cocaine consumption observed in recent decades, has led to the identification of previously unknown multiple medical problems. Cardiovascular complications related to cocaine abuse include myocardial ischemia and infarction, myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, rhythm disturbances and sudden death, endocarditis, pneumopericardium and left(More)
A 62-year-old man was admitted to the hospital in a state of shock with electrocardiographic signs of inferior-wall acute myocardial infarction. He was initially diagnosed of cardiogenic shock. An urgent coronary angiography showed an irregular stenosis of 90% in the right coronary artery. Coronary angioplasty was performed, and a stent was placed in this(More)
The case of a 71-year-old male patient, with symptoms of dizzines and atypical chest pain and a positive isotopic exercise stress test, is reported. Coronary angiography demostrated an anomalous origin of the left circumflex coronary artery from right coronary ostium but no obstructive atherosclerotic coronary lesions. The possible relation between the(More)
