BACKGROUND The close relationship between pleural space and pericardial space and the dependence of their pressure kinetics are well known. This study evaluates the effects of increased intra pleural pressure due to pleural effusion on cardiovascular system. METHODS Forty patients above the age of 12 who had massive unilateral/bilateral pleural effusion(More)
Left atrial thrombus in the presence of diseased mitral valve and atrial fibrillation is a well known entity. But it is very rare to occur in the presence of normal mitral valve apparatus. We report the case of a 36 year old female who presented with left atrial ball valve thrombus and normal mitral valve apparatus and underwent surgery. This patient with(More)
Objective: The present study was designed to derive the normal limits of a new ECG lead system aimed at enhancing the amplitude of atrial potentials through the use of bipolar chest leads. Methods: Sixty healthy male subjects, mean age 38.85±8.76 years (range 25 to 58 years) were included in this study. In addition to a standard 12-lead ECG, a modified limb(More)
Congenital mitral stenosis (MS) is a rare congenital cardiac malformation and the obstruction to the flow across the mitral valve can be caused by supramitral ring, commissural fusion, short chordae, anomalous mitral arcade, anomalous position of the papillary muscles and the so-called'parachute mitral valve'. We describe here the case of a 47 year old male(More)
