A case of isolated dilation of inferior vena cava with diminished inspiratory collapse is reported. There was no other abnormality. Diameter and collapsibility of IVC should be interpreted in collaboration with other clinical and echocardiographic parameters before drawing any definative conclusion.
Coronary artery anomalies are rare entities. All angiographers and cardiac surgeons need to be familiar with these anatomic variants for proper surgical revasularisation in the presence of coronary artery disease. We report here an interesting case of superdominant right coronary artery with double posterior descending artery.
Left main coronary artery aneurysm is an uncommon coronary anomaly. We describe herein a male whose coronary angiogram revealed left main coronary artery aneurysm. The purpose of the case report is to highlight the clinical picture, workup, and treatment options for such patients.
Myocardial infarction is very uncommon in young females. We are reporting a case of acute myocardial infarction in a 20 year pregnant female with prosthetic mitral valve. Embolism from mitral valve prosthesis, in-situ thrombosis due to hypercoagulable state of pregnancy or coronary spasm could be responsible.
INTRODUCTION Right ventricle (RV) dysfunction may be secondary to left ventricle (LV) dysfunction in patients of isolated left ventricle anterior myocardial infarction as a consequence of "Ventricular Interdependence". As RV dysfunction is associated with high in-hospital morbidity and mortality, early recognization of RV dysfunction is warranted; but until… (More)
