The effects of inequality on economic growth depend on several factors. On one hand, they depend on the time horizon considered, on the initial level of income and on its initial distribution. But, on the other hand, as growth and inequality are also uneven across space, it also seems relevant to wonder about the effects of the geographic agglomeration of(More)
We present a 52-year-old patient who came to the emergency room with non-specific symptoms and whose clinical profile after 24 hours included acute abdomen and paresthesia in both lower extremities. A chest film revealed mediastinic enlargement; embolism was suspected. During surgery intestinal ischemia was found in the superior mesenteric artery; this was(More)
OBJECTIVE Left ventricular noncompaction is a congenital malformation characterized by a myocardium organized into two layers, one compacted and one noncompacted. We aimed to quantify myocardial function, perfusion, and delayed enhancement using MRI in patients with left-ventricular noncompaction and to compare these results with those of normal patients.(More)
A 57 year old patient presented with unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis and severe hypoxaemia secondary to transient right-to-left interatrial shunting through a patent foramen ovale. The final diagnosis was made because of the initial detection of a shunt while the patient was breathing 100% oxygen.
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The plasma N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) level is a sensitive marker of ventricular dysfunction. The diagnostic and prognostic value of urinary NT-proBNP measurement has been demonstrated. The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between established parameters of ventricular function and(More)
The primary antiphospholipid syndrome is a disorder which is characterized by: arterial and/or venous thrombosis, thrombocytopenia, recurrent fetal loss and high plasma levels of antiphospholipid antibodies. Valvular involvement is associated with arterial thrombosis and the most frequent manifestation is regurgitation. We report the case of a young male(More)
The aim for this study was to evaluate the hemodynamic changes that appear in patients with myocardiopathy at functional stage II (NYHA) subjected to standard treatment (digital+diuretics) plus nitrates. We used isosorbide-5-mononitrate (IS-5-MN). We studied 20 patients for 100 days in different phases. The placebo-controlled, crossover, double-blind stage(More)
We present an adult with echocardiographic diagnosis of cor triatriatum. Continuous wave Doppler echocardiography was able to assess correctly the severity of the left ventricular inflow obstruction caused by the intra-atrial membrane. Even though the diagnosis was confirmed by catheterization, the surgical decision was based in noninvasive data.(More)
Congenital coronary artery fistulas are rare malformations that may evolve to pulmonary hypertension, heart failure and myocardial ischemia, although some may close spontaneously. Complications such as endocarditis, rupture, aneurysm or thrombosis may also be observed. Most patients are asymptomatic and the fistulas are usually detected by doppler(More)
