STUDY OBJECTIVES To assess the potential benefit of thrombolysis in patients with massive pulmonary embolism (PE) with stable hemodynamics and right ventricular dysfunction. DESIGN Retrospective, cohort study. SETTING University-based, tertiary referral medical center. PATIENTS One hundred fifty-three consecutive patients with massive PE from January(More)
AIMS The choice of resynchronization therapy between with (CRT-D) and without (CRT-P) a defibrillator remains a contentious issue. Cause-of-death analysis among CRT-P, compared with CRT-D, patients could help evaluate the extent to which CRT-P patients would have additionally benefited from a defibrillator in a daily clinical practice. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
UNLABELLED NEW THERAPEUTIC OPTION: Atherosclerosis-related conditions are the primary cause of mortality in western countries. The incidence of severe limb-threatening ischemia of the lower limbs reaches 500 to 1000 per million inhabitants. The lack of effective treatment capable of preventing amputation in the most severe cases has led to research into the(More)
For the CryoLife-O'Brien valve (CryoLife Inc, Kennesaw, GA, USA), implanted with a single suture line, we aimed to analyze the surgical requests and the hemodynamic results compared to stented bioprostheses. Two groups of patients requiring isolated aortic valve replacement from this population were compared retrospectively: 84 patients receiving the(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of preceding unstable angina on the short-term prognosis of myocardial infarction based on early complications: cardiac failure, cardiac rupture, ventricular septal defect, sustained ventricular tachycardia ventricular fibrillation and hospital mortality. A continuous series of 1,910 patients admitted with 7(More)
OBJECTIVE Ventilation/perfusion pulmonary scintigraphy (PS), the current mainspring in the diagnosis of pulmonary oedema (PE), is frequently non-conclusive. The objective of this study was to determine, prospectively, the diagnostic value of the association of D-dimers and helicoidal thoracic scanner (HTS) in a continuous series of ambulatory adults with(More)
