The strategy of prehospital activation by the emergency medical system (EMS) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) has been poorly adopted among the US hospitals that currently… (More)
The present case illustrates the successful transcatheter closure of an unusual double aortic root-to-right ventricular outflow tract fistula utilizing two Amplatzer duct occluders II.
Ischemic mitral regurgitation (MR) after myocardial infarction is associated with poor long-term survival, and the optimal treatment strategy remains debated. The most common repair technique used is… (More)
BACKGROUND The study aim was to evaluate the aortic valve and aortic root morphology in Hispanic patients with a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). BAV disease is one of the most common congenital anomaly… (More)
Cardiogenic shock remains a serious complication of acute myocardial infarction as it is associated with very poor prognosis. Despite the historical clinical benefits of the intra-aortic balloon pump… (More)
Amyloidosis is a systemic disorder that results from abnormal protein metabolism, producing amyloid fibrils that are subsequently deposited within vital organs. Cardiac involvement is typically… (More)
Aortic aneurysms compressing an atrium causing symptoms are uncommon. We describe a case of bi-atrial compression due to ascending and descending aneurysms leading to dyspnea.
