SUMMARY The relationship of changes in ventricular activation patterns and variations in R-wave amplitude on the surface ECG during the hyperacute phase of myocardial ischemia were studied in nine open-chest dogs. The sum of R-wave amplitude (2RWA) changes in surface ECG leads L2, V5 and Frank orthogonal leads X, Y and Z were correlated with changes in the(More)
Ninety-nine adult mongrel dogs underwent acute ligation of the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery. Thirty minutes later, the occlusion was released to evaluate the effectiveness of five antiarrhythmic protocols in eliminating reperfusion ventricular fibrillation. The five protocols included: protocol 1 --i.v. lidocaine, preligation and(More)
Diastolic mitral valve "locking," defined as sustained diastolic closure of the mitral valve after atrial systole, was investigated by simultaneous hemodynamic and echocardiographic recordings during a protocol of programmed pacing in six dogs with surgically induced atrioventricular block. Atrial extrasystoles were introduced at progressively increasing(More)
An 86-year-old woman was admitted because of heart failure. Trans-thoracic echocardiography demonstrated a pericardial effusion and masses occupying the right atrium. Axial non-contrast computed tom-ography (CT) image showed isoattenuating masses relative to the myo-cardium in the right atrium (Panel A1). Contrast-enhanced CT revealed mildly enhancing right(More)
An 11-year-old boy was diagnosed with chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO) and presented with right sacro-femoral and occipital lesions. Initially, a tumor was suspected. However, the bone biopsy showed osteomyelitis with a negative bacterial culture. Bone scintigraphy revealed inflammatory changes on multiple bone lesions. The slight elevation(More)
