To determine which method of surgical therapy might be optimal for patients with anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA), a follow-up study was performed. Twenty-nine teenagers and adults who had ALCAPA diagnosed during life at age 13 years or older were identified mainly by literature search. Recent follow-up was obtained on all.(More)
Numerous criteria for the diagnosis of inferior wall myocardial infarction by electrocardiogram (ECG) and vectorcardiogram (VCG) have been published, but they have not been subjected to a systematic, independent evaluation. Accordingly, we studied 146 patients undergoing cardiac catheterization; 63 were normal and 83 had a history of infarction, a(More)
An adult with angina was found to have anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA). Review of the literature regarding this anomaly in teen-agers and adults disclosed only 25 cases diagnosed during life. Eighteen additional cases of ALCAPA in this age group have been diagnosed post mortem. In this report, we will review(More)
A patient with chronic lung disease became cyanotic following right pneumonectomy for cancer. He was found to have right-to-left shunting through a patent foramen ovale in the absence of pulmonary hypertension, and he improved remarkable after surgical therapy. This case vividly illustrates the subtlety with which acquired right-to-left shunting may appear(More)
The pathogenesis of the association of medullary sponge kidney and hyperparathyroidism from parathyroid adenoma remains obscure. This unusual case of medullary sponge kidney and secondary hyperparathyroidism due to renal-leak hypercalciuria gives insight into a possible mechanism for the occurrence of medullary sponge kidney with parathyroid adenoma.(More)
We have studied 28 patients undergoing coronary angiography by the Judkins technique to determine whether serum myoglobin (MG) might be useful as an indicator of myocardial injury during routine cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography. MG was measured immediately before and after the procedure, and 4 hr later. The study population failed to show a(More)
The intraventricular conduction time was measured during rest, exercise, and recovery in five patients who developed acute left anterior hemiblock during exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. The A QRS shifted from 58 +/- 17 degrees at rest to -66 +/- 11 degrees during exercise (p less than 0.001). The intraventricular conduction time at rest was 86 +/- 4(More)
