STUDY OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate the pathophysiology of left and right heart failure in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) who were hospitalized to undergo pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE). DESIGN Thirty-nine patients (16 women and 23 men; mean +/- SD age, 55+/-12 years) with severe CTEPH were examined(More)
Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE) leads to an acute decrease of right ventricular (RV) afterload in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. We investigated the changes in right and left ventricular (LV) geometry and hemodynamics by means of transthoracic echocardiography. The prospective study was performed in 14 patients (8 female,(More)

Over a period of several months a 33-year-old man had recurrent pulmonary emboli. No thromboses could be demonstrated in the peripheral venous system. Transoesophageal echocardiography showed two spherical space-occupying structures in the right ventricle which were removed operatively under the suspected diagnosis of multilobular myxomas. However, their(More)
OBJECTIVE The cause of syncope remains unclear in half of the cases, even after extensive neurological and cardiological examination. A study was, therefore, undertaken to determine the number of patients with the suspected diagnosis of vasovagal syncope that were confirmed by the tilting table test and how often it required the additional administration of(More)
We report the rare congenital anomaly of a singular right coronary artery in absence of the left coronary ostium. In a 31-years-old man, coronary arterial angiography demonstrated a right coronary artery which, arising from the right Sinus Valsalvae, first described the normal right coronary arterial course but in the apical region continued to follow, in(More)
Durch pulmonale Thrombendarteriektomie kann bei Patienten mit chronischer embolisch bedingter pulmonaler Hypertonie eine akute rechtsventrikuläre Nachlastsenkung erzielt werden. Der Einfluß auf die rechts- und linksventrikuläre Geometrie und Hämodynamik wurde prospektiv mit Hilfe der transthorakalen Echokardiographie an einem Kollektiv von 14 Patienten (8(More)
