The initial presentation is dependent upon the severity of the intracardiac involvement. In this report, we describe two women with leiomyomatosis originating from the uterus and extending into the inferior(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects and mechanisms of panaxoside Rg1 on the new vessel formation in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) rats. METHODS The AMI model of male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats was established, and rats were randomly divided into the AMI model group, the treatment group of panaxoside Rg1, the placebo group and the treatment group of(More)
Posttraumatic foreign bodies in the heart or great vessels is rare, which may cause cardiac tamponade, bleeding, shock, infection, embolism, arrhythmia, valve dysfunction, etc. The foreign bodies can be removed by surgery or percutaneous intervention. In this report we reviewed our experience in managing posttraumatic foreign bodies in 13 patients at our(More)
Epithelioid haemangioendothelioma (EH) is a rare malignant tumor of vascular origin that usually arises in bone, liver, soft tissue, or lung. EH originating in the pleura has been less frequently described. We describe an uncommon case of pleural EH compressing the myocardium in a 39-year-old woman. The patient was diagnosed with pleural EH confirmed by(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrosis causes abnormal conduction through the atria, creating a substrate for atrial fibrillation (AF). In a rabbit model, rapid atrial pacing produces significant atrial fibrosis and the substrate for AF maintenance. This atrial remodeling is a potential therapeutic target. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of the losartan on atrial(More)
Interrupted aortic arch is a rare congenital cardiac defect. There are extremely few cases in adults that are reported in the pertinent medical literature. However, single-stage repair of interrupted aortic arch combined with coronary artery disease has been rarely reported. We describe the management of interrupted aortic arch associated with coronary(More)
To assess the effect of basic fibroblast growth factor-binding extracellular matrix (bFGF-ECM) combined with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) transplantation on acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and explore the underlying mechenisms. Rabbit hearts were processed by decellularization with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) perfusion, heparin(More)
