METHODS In a prospective study to address the question whether unapparent pulmonary hypertension can be revealed prior to right ventricular (RV) remodelling, patients were(More)
BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) shape and function serves as an indicator in several types of heart disease such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD). However, there is no in-depth knowledge of RV motion, even in healthy subjects. The aim of our study was to provide a quantitative analysis of normal variations in RV wall motion in healthy(More)
Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma is an aggressive tumour in adulthood, in which cardiac troponin T seems to be a tumour marker and course parameter. We present the clinical course of a young man suffering from this rare disease and the development of troponin T during therapy. Noninvasive cardiac imaging was used to exclude cardiac involvement, myocardial(More)
