Echocardiographic motions of right ventricular anterior wall (RVAW) were investigated in 71 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. According to the criteria of Rosenbaum et al the electrocardiograms were classified as type A in 35 patients and type B in 36. Sixteen type B patients exhibited abnormal RVAW motion, which was characterized by an(More)
In 24 patients with old inferoposterior myocardial infarction, body surface isopotential maps were compared with left ventriculographic findings. In 16 patients with asynergy restricted to the inferior and/or posterolateral segment, surface potential abnormalities due to infarction were observed during specific phases of QRS and in specific portions on the(More)
The characteristic patterns of the epicardial activation and body surface isopotential maps (MAPs) were examined in experimental transient right bundle branch block (RBBB) produced by pressing the main stem of right bundle mechanically. During the recovery from the complete block, various degrees of incomplete RBBB (IRBBB) were obtained. The epicardial(More)
We examined the activation patterns in the left ventricular epicardial surface of dog hearts using multielectrode grid during the beats initiating ventricular tachycardia 5 to 120 min after coronary artery occlusion. The grid was placed on the ischemic border zone (the area was confirmed by ST-isopotential mapping) to record simultaneously 36 unipolar(More)
Prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis(PVE) is one of the devastating diseases and some cases present with extensive annular destruction requiring complex surgical repair. We report 2 cases of PVE with more than one-half of aortic annular destruction after complete debridement of the infected tissue. In these patients we successfully performed mechanical(More)
In 30 patients with old anterior myocardial infarction, body surface isopotential maps were correlatively studied with left ventriculographic findings. In 25 patients with ventricular asynergy restricted to the anterior segments, surface potential abnormalities due to infarction were observed during specific phases of QRS and in specific portions of the(More)
Though a high frequency of postoperative complications after an original Bentall procedure has been reported, several procedures that reduce the incidence of complications have been developed. Complications relating to anastomoses of the interposed graft are infrequent but life-threatening. This report describes a case of a 61-year-old man who presented(More)
