The purpose of this review is to analyze the possible parameters that lead to the development of what is a rare event--acute myocardial infarction (AMI) during pregnancy and puerperium. Through the Index Médicus, 109 publications on the subject were obtained. Since the first well-documented case by Katz in 1922, 136 patients have been reported, and from(More)
We study the Equitable Connected Partition problem, which is the problem of partitioning a graph into a given number of partitions, such that each partition induces a connected subgraph, and the partitions differ in size by at most one. We examine the problem from the parameterized complexity perspective with respect to the number of partitions, the(More)
The authors present 2 cases: 1 of a thirty-two-year-old woman and another of a thirty-eight-year-old woman, both Hispanic and athletic, with no identifiable precipitating or coronary risk factors, such as previous heart disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, cigarette smoking, hyperlipoproteinemia, oral contraceptive use, coagulation disorders, thyroid(More)
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the usefulness of two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography for diagnosing double mitral valve orifices (DMVO) in addition to identifying associated pathologies. We report five cases, three male and two female with an age ranging from 4 to 44 years old (mean age: 17 years), with the diagnosis of DMVO according(More)
Twenty consecutive female patients (mean age 30.1 years) with Primary Antiphospholipid Syndrome (PAPS) were studied cardiologically through noninvasive methods and compared with 20 age-and sex-matched healthy subjects. On physical examination 13/20 patients (65%) with PAPS had a valvular abnormality. In 12/20 (60%) patients with PAPS the ECG was abnormal,(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate cone beam CT (CBCT) scans for the presence of physiological and pathological intracranial calcifications. METHODS CBCT scans from male and female patients that met our ascertainment criteria were evaluated retrospectively (n=500) for the presence of either physiological or pathological intracranial(More)
The authors report a case of a forty-one-year-old white woman with dextrocardia with situs inversus who presented episodes of prolonged sinus arrest and syncopal episodes secondary to possible idiopathic degeneration of the conduction system, managed successfully with a permanent bicameral pacemaker. In their literature review they found that this case(More)
A sixty-two-year-old white woman with a 14.5 cm (145 mm) silent giant left atrial enlargement secondary probably to rheumatic heart disease is presented. Aside from mild progressive shortness of breath during the past year, the patient had been asymptomatic all her life. Her clinical picture was manifested for the first time by syncope secondary to slow(More)
The authors present a case of a seventeen-year-old white male who suffered from a knife chest wound and secondarily developed a traumatic coronary arteriovenous fistula communicating the left main coronary artery to the pulmonary artery, associated with pulmonary valvular insufficiency and endocarditis.
