OBJECTIVE In acute coronary syndromes, switching between thienopyridines is frequent. The aims of the study were to assess the association between switching practices and quality of care. METHODS Registry study performed in 213 French public university, public non-academic and private hospitals. All consecutive patients admitted for acute myocardial(More)
This is a case of an 82 year old female patient with myasthenia gravis, who following treatment with Human Normal Immunoglobulin (Tegeline(®)), developed dyspnoea, chest pain without cardiac insufficiency, inverted T wave on ECG with slight increase in Troponine T 0.43ng/mL (<0.2ng/mL normal value in our hospital) and marked increase in Pro-BNP 4900(More)
Pseudo-aneurysm of the fibrous continuity zone between the aortic and mitral valves, the so-called "mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa" is a rare complication of acute infective endocarditis, rarely after an aortic valve replacement. We report the case of a large pseudo-aneurysm occurred in a 70-year-old man, who had a history of surgical aortic valve(More)
Some pulmonary embolism may present electrocardiogram changes, which suggest the diagnosis of myocardial infarction. We report the case of a patient with such a confounding presentation. In this patient, the wrong diagnosis of myocardial infarction led to a primary coronarography which was normal and finally, echocardiogram gave us the key leading to a(More)
A 60-year-old male presented a myocardial infarction after a voluntary overdose of Asasantine(®) started after strokes. He took chronically this association and some psychotropic drugs with vasodilator effects. After an intake of 40 tablets, he presented a cardiogenic shock with a myocardial infarction confirmed by biological samples, EKG, echocardiography(More)
Mitral valvuloplasty which is currently the most popular surgical procedure in MVD may be complicated mostly by restenosis or valvular leakage. Hemolysis occurs less frequently and by far less commonly than in prosthetic valves but deserves to be known. Delay between valvuloplasty and hemolytic anemia occurrence may vary within a wide range (from some weeks(More)
BACKGROUND We document dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) use from discharge to 4 years after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and investigate whether prolonged DAPT (beyond 1 year) is related to 5-year mortality. METHODS The French Registry of Acute ST-elevation or non-ST-elevation Myocardial Infarction (FAST-MI 2005) included 3670 patients with AMI in(More)
A 50-year-old male patient treated with mesalazine for Crohn's disease was admitted in our unit for a chest pain, associated with nonspecific ST depression or ECG and troponin elevation. Coronarography showed minimal changes while SPECT imagery suggested a posterobasal subendocardial infarction, so that the diagnosis was unclear between ischemic disease and(More)
