Valvular disease in mucopolysaccharidosis type I-Hurler (MPS/1H) is relatively common, but mitral stenosis is very rare in this genetic abnormality. The authors describe the case of a 16-year old girl with Hurler's syndrome diagnosed at 4 years of age. The morphological features were characteristic: bridged nose, thickened lips, macroglassia, short neck(More)
Isolated congenital sick sinusal syndrome on non harmed heart is a rare affection. Its association with an atrio-ventricular block is exceptional. The authors report a case of a 19 year-old patient, with an early history of bradycardia, hospitalised for effort intolerance. His electrocardiogram reveals a high degree sino-atrial block replaced by a(More)
High degree atrioventricular block complicates inferior wall acute myocardial infarction in 10 to 15% of cases. Its significance is still controversial. In this study, we have analysed 152 observations of acute inferior wall myocardial infarction during hospitalisation period. The mean age of our patients is 60 years, 48.7% of them have received(More)
The frequency of non-Q wave myocardial infarction is permanently increasing. In this retrospective study, we have tried to establish the clinical features, the prognosis and the therapeutic possibilities in this entity. We have studied the clinical history, the physical examination data, the results of the different explorations and the short and long term(More)
In this work we report a consecutive series of ten patients having auriculoventricular block "presumed" congenital which is seen in adulthood between 1990 and 2001 to determine their clinical profile and forecast, and to deduct the therapeutic consequences. Our criteria of inclusion requires the existence of patients with a second or third degree heart(More)
The permanent ventricular tachycardia (PVT) represent a rare and dangerous arrhythmia that causes prognostic and therapeutic difficulties. Three patients admitted during last year for PVT complicating ischemic cardiomyopathy in two cases and idiopathic cardiomyopathy in the last case. These patients were admitted from emergency department for sustained(More)
The dissection of the descending aorta is a serious affection regarding to its mortality and its complications. It becomes chronic after the 14th day following the first signs of dissection. The authors report the case of a 55 years old patient who has presented a type III dissection diagnosed at the chronic period. The persistance of the pain has indicated(More)
In acromegaly, dilated cardiomyopathy is rare. Indeed, arterial hypertension, coronary artery disease and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are more common. The authors report a case of a 42-years-old man with dyspnea (class III NYHA) and palpitations. The cardiac echography showed a dilated cardiomyopathy. The investigations revealed an acromegaly as an(More)
The hypothyroidism and coronary disease are tightly related. Our retrospective study, based upon the data from ten patients with hypothyroidism and coronary disease, aimed to assess the diagnosis, the prognosis and the therapeutic measures in these patients. Our population aged in average 60 years and was almost composed with women. Acute Coronary syndrome(More)
