Drowning is one of the fatal accidents frequently encountered during the summer and is the most common cause of accidental death in the world. Anoxia, hypothermia, and metabolic acidosis are mainly responsible for morbidty. Cardiovascular effects may occur secondary to hypoxia and hypothermia. Atrial fibrillation, sinus dysrhythmias (rarely requiring(More)
A 32-year-old multiparous woman who presented with chest pain at seven weeks gestation was admitted to our hospital 35 minutes after the onset of symptoms. Sudden cardiac arrest developed while the patient was waiting in the triage room. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was performed, and the patient was immediately intubated. Electrocardiography revealed an(More)
We previously reported the case of a 57-year-old male patient with a history of acute amaurosis fugax. Carotid angiography was performed as blood pressure differed between his left and right arms and there was a pan-systolic murmur on the left common carotid artery. Total occlusion of the proximal right brachiocephalic artery and a thrombus occluding 90–99%(More)
BACKGROUND Subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) is associated with cardiovascular metabolic syndromes, especially dislipidemia and abdominal obesity. Visceral abdominal adipose tissue (VAAT) and epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) have the same ontogenic origin and produce many proinflammatory and proatherogenic cytokines. We evaluated EAT and VAAT thickness in(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is related to metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular metabolic syndromes. This is particularly true for individuals with central and abdominal obesity because visceral abdominal adipose tissue (VAAT) and epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) produce a large number of proinflammatory and(More)
Bee sting may cause hypersensitivity reaction with a range from simple allergic reaction to life-threatening anaphylactic response. Although rare, cardiac involvement is a possible complication, varying from vasospasm to acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction. In this case, a 61-year old man was presented to our hospital with ST elevation acute myocardial(More)
OBJECTIVE Epidemiological studies suggest that women with loss of ovarian function at early ages may be especially burdened by cardiovascular disease (CVD). In this study, we aimed to evaluate pulse wave velocity (PWV) and myocardial performance index (MPI) in patients with premature ovarian insufficiency (POI). DESIGN We enrolled 51 female patients (mean(More)
