Chronic pericarditis can take the form of localised annular bands constricting the atrioventricular grooves, the pulmonary infundibulum and, rarely, the atria. The authors report two cases of pericardial bands surrounding the ventricles and involving the atrioventricular groove resulting in a biloculation of the left ventricle. One case was complicated by(More)
Three cases of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) revealed by transient neurological accidents are reported. Although well-known this condition is rare: 1 to 9 p. 100 of CSDHs. Questioning may bring out a history of cranial injury and headache, even minor ones, which are unusual in transient ischemic accidents (TIA). Transient phenomena, such as motor aphasia(More)
Arterial endofibrosis is a disease of recent discovery which concerns high-performance athletes, predominantly competitive cyclists. The preferential location is the external iliac artery. The symptoms are diverse (pain, edema, paresthesia), always linked to an effort. The diagnosis may be delayed due to atypical symptoms in athletes. Complementary tests(More)
Ten patients with acute myocardial infarction were studied by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with injection of a paramagnetic contrast agent: Gadolinium-DOTA (Gd-DOTA). The time interval between the onset of symptoms and MRI was 8 to 12 days. The site of infarction was determined in all cases by Thallium 201 scintigraphy (hypofixation) and selective(More)
In this retrospective study changes in the prognosis of recent myocardial infarction were evaluated by comparing 731 patients hospitalized in the 1970-1974 period (group I) with 755 patients hospitalized in the 1984-1986 period (group II). The possible factors responsible for the changes observed were investigated. A 34 percent decrease in hospital(More)
A prospective randomized study was undertaken in 50 patients treated with intravenous thrombolysis (streptokinase, tissue plasminogen activator, association of the two thrombolytics) for acute myocardial infarction to determine the best time to perform percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Coronary angiography was carried out 24 to 72 hours(More)
Pulsed, continuous-wave, and color Doppler were performed in 165 normal mitral prostheses and 58 patients with prosthetic dysfunction (46 regurgitant and 12 obstructive valves) proved by catheterization and/or surgery. Mean mitral gradient (MG) and pressure half-time (PHT) were determined in all cases. Among normal prostheses, a wide range of both MG and(More)
