Endothelial dysfunction is a key triggering event in atherosclerosis. Following the entry of lipoproteins into the vessel wall, their rapid modification results in the generation of advanced glycation endproduct epitopes and subsequent infiltration of inflammatory cells. These inflammatory cells release receptor for advanced glycation endproduct (RAGE)(More)
Congenital diverticulum of the left ventricle is a rare anomaly. Echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and magnetic resonance imaging of the heart diagnosed a giant left ventricular diverticulum in a 20-year-old male with a history of dyspnea and palpitations. He underwent successful surgical correction of the left ventricular diverticulum.
OBJECTIVE Among the inherited cardiomyopathies, Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy is unique with a peculiar pathology of fibro-fatty replacement. Studies have been carried out all over the world and several groups have reported clinical heterogeneity in manifestation of ARVD/C related symptoms. Present study is an attempt to identify(More)
BACKGROUND Arrythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a primary myocardial disorder morphologically characterized by subtle to severe replacement of the right ventricular myocardium by fatty and fibrous tissue. ARVC is known to be highly prevalent in European population with recent reports implicating it to be a major cause of sudden death in(More)
An unusual systemic venous drainage pattern was found in a 30-year-old man with ostium secundum atrial septal defect and pulmonary stenosis. He had the rare association of absent right superior vena cava, persistent left superior vena cava draining into the coronary sinus, and a left-sided inferior vena cava draining into a left superior vena cava through(More)
INTRODUCTION Anaemia is a contributor for adverse prognosis in Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), but the epidemiology and causes of anaemia in such patients is not defined. AIM To study the prevalence and aetiology of anaemia in hospitalized patients with ACS. MATERIALS AND METHODS All consecutive patients admitted with ACS from January to March, 2010 were(More)
Pheochromocytoma patients can rarely have prolonged QT interval in the ECG. We report three cases of pheochromocytoma in females presenting with ventricular arrhythmia; two had torsades de pointes and a third patient had frequent VPCs and nonsustained ventricular tachycardia. All the patients were treated with surgical removal of the tumor with complete(More)
