OBJECTIVES We sought to describe characteristics and outcome in adults with isolated ventricular noncompaction (IVNC). BACKGROUND Isolated ventricular noncompaction is an unclassified… Expand
Echocardiographic and pathoanatomical characteristics of isolated left ventricular non-compaction: a step towards classification as a distinct cardiomyopathy
AIM To determine clear cut echocardiographic criteria for isolated ventricular non-compaction (IVNC), a cardiomyopathy as yet “unclassified” by the World Health Organization. The disease is not… Expand
Mutations in Sarcomere Protein Genes in Left Ventricular Noncompaction
Background— Left ventricular noncompaction constitutes a primary cardiomyopathy characterized by a severely thickened, 2-layered myocardium, numerous prominent trabeculations, and deep… Expand
Paravalvular leakage after mitral valve replacement: improved long-term survival with aggressive surgery?
BACKGROUND Following mitral valve replacement, surgical closure of paravalvular leaks is usually advised in severely symptomatic patients and in those requiring blood transfusions for persisting… Expand

AIMS Significant brady- and tachyarrhythmias may occur in active endurance athletes. It is controversial whether these arrhythmias do persist after cessation of competitive endurance training. … Expand
Primary pulmonary hypertension in HIV infection.
A prospective evaluation of 74 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients with cardiopulmonary complaints revealed six patients (8.1 percent) with pulmonary hypertension with elevated right… Expand
Isolated ventricular non-compaction of the myocardium in adults
Isolated ventricular non-compaction (IVNC) in adults is a genetic cardiac disease of emerging importance with a distinct clinical and pathophysiological presentation. The body of evidence for the… Expand

PURPOSE To evaluate the risk of cardiac lesions after conventionally fractionated irradiation (Rt) of the mediastine with or without chemotherapy (Ct) in patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) and to… Expand
Dealing with dilated ascending aorta during aortic valve replacement: advantages of conservative surgical approach.
- T. Carrel, L. V. von Segesser, +5 authors M. Turina
- European journal of cardio-thoracic surgery…
Five to fifteen percent of patients undergoing aortic valve replacement (AVR) will have an ascending aortic aneurysm requiring a concomitant surgical procedure. On the other hand, a dilated ascending… Expand
