This report describes a case of right coronary sinus of Valsalva aneurysm which ruptured into the left ventricle. The diagnosis was made with two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography which showed an abnormal structure extending from the aortic root into the left ventricle adjacent to the interventricular septum. Subsequent examinations with(More)
BACKGROUND Predictors of aortic dilatation are not well-described in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). Changes in extracellular matrix composition in the aortic wall may play an important role. Our study aimed to examine the relationship between ascending aortic dilatation and biochemical markers for collagen metabolism, such as matrix(More)
Recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after cardioversion (CV) to sinus rhythm (SR) is determined by various clinical and echocardiographic parameters. Transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) parameters have been the focus of clinicians' interests for restoring and maintaining SR. This study determined the clinical, transthoracic, and TEE parameters that(More)
UNLABELLED Existing data on the effect of retained pacemaker leads on right ventricular (RV) and tricuspid valve function is limited. OBJECTIVE In this echocardiographic study we investigated the long-term effect of retained ventricular leads on RV and tricuspid valve function in patients with permanent pacemakers. Forty patients, 18 with two (group I)(More)
Quadricuspid aortic valve is a rare congenital malformation of the aortic valve. Transthoracic 2-dimensional echocardiography can delineate aortic valve and diagnose most quadricuspid aortic valves. This article is a report of a quadricuspid aortic valve associated with aortic stenosis and aortic insufficiency diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography.
Anomalous muscular bands have been seen in the left ventricle and right and left atria. Although the significance of left ventricular false tendons and right atrial anomalous muscular bands have been reported previously, the importance of anomalous muscular bands observed in the left atrium is not clearly defined. They have been found to be associated with(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the treatment outcomes of the prostate cancer (PCa) patients treated by radical prostatectomy (RP) who could be good candidates for active surveillance (AS) and test the confidence and reliability of the AS criterias for predicting advanced stage disease (RP Gleason score≥7 or Pathological stage T3). METHODS Between 2005 and 2012 the(More)
Papillary fibroelastomas, which were initially incidental findings at autopsy and surgery, are now being recognized with increasing frequency with the widespread use of echocardiography. Because of their embolic potential, an aggressive treatment approach is generally accepted. We report a papillary fibroelastoma located at the chorda of the anterior mitral(More)
A 28-yr old female patient admitted to our clinic because of dyspnea and chest pain. Her transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated a huge mass on the anterolateral wall of the left ventricle causing dysfunction of the myocardium. Coronary angiography demonstrated left anterior descending artery fistula draining into the pericardial cystic mass. Hydatic(More)
Recent studies demonstrate that, treatment with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin-II receptor blockers may decrease left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in hypertensive patients. We wanted to assess the efficacy of valsartan on echocardiographic variables of LVH in 30 mild to moderate hypertensive patients. Valsartan was found(More)
