Herein, we report 3 cases of Behçet syndrome that were accompanied by intracardiac thrombus. The 1st patient was a 30-year-old man who presented with dyspnea; a right atrial thrombus was identified upon transthoracic echocardiography. The 2nd patient was a 52-year-old man who was admitted for dyspnea; transthoracic echocardiography revealed an echogenic(More)
Atrio-ventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is a rare supra-ventricular tachycardia (SVT) in children and becomes more frequent in adolescents. Most of children with an AVNRT have a healthy heart thus rarely experiencing severe symptoms. Because of haemodynamic instability or risk of complications, recurrences of SVT may require a chronic therapy.(More)
Neuromuscular Diseases are a heterogeneous molecular, clinical and prognosis group. Progress has been achieved in the understanding and classification of these diseases.Cardiac involvement in neuromuscular diseases namely conduction disorders, ventricular dilatation and dilated cardiomyopathy with its impact on prognosis, is often dissociated from the(More)
Peripartum cardiomyopathy is an uncommon disease defined as a dilated cardiomyopathy during puerperium, with left ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction < 45%) without any other etiology. The etiology of this disease remains uncertain and it can be revealed in a variety of ways. Thrombo-embolic complications may be, although infrequently, the initial(More)
BACKGROUND The energy requirement for internal ventricular defibrillation is reduced by reversal of shock polarity. The influence of shock polarity on the efficacy of transthoracic atrial defibrillation is unknown. METHODS This prospective, randomized study enrolled 110 consecutive patients who were referred for elective cardioversion of persistent atrial(More)
The introduction in the left ventricle of a stimulation probe, by an involuntary ventricular transseptal trajectory can pass unobserved during the implantation and can be revealed later on occasion of complications. It is a rarely described possibility and can have some serious consequences. We discuss through our observation ways to avoid this trap of the(More)
La maladie de Steinert ou dystrophie myotonique de type 1 (DM1) est une maladie génétique à transmission autosomique dominante caractérisée par une myotonie et une atteinte de plusieurs organes dont le cœur. L'atteinte cardiaque est la plus grave des atteintes systémiques puisqu'elle conditionne le pronostic vital. Ce travail a pour but de déterminer les(More)
BACKGROUND Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man 220400) is a rare autosomal recessive cardioauditory ion channel disorder that affects 1/200,000 to 1/1,000,000 children. It is characterized by congenital profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, a long QT interval, ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and episodes of torsade(More)
