We report a case of aortocoronary bypass graft aneurysm revealed by exertional dyspnea and presenting as an anterior mediastinal mass at the unenhanced computed tomography scan. The diagnosis has been established using combined contrast-enhanced CT scan which specified the vascular nature of the mass and coronary angiography which connected it to the(More)
QT prolongation is essentially of pharmacologic origin. It is principally linked to a block of the outward potassium current Ikr, with as a consequence a prolongation of the repolarisation causing early after potentials and re-entry. The term "repolarisation reserve" expresses the variable risk of arrhythmia among individuals under the same drug blocking(More)

Five years of eros data towards the Small Magellanic Cloud have been searched for gravitational microlensing events, using a new, more accurate method to assess the impact of stellar blending on the efficiency. Four long-duration candidates have been found which, if they are microlensing events, hint at a non-halo population of lenses. Combined with results(More)
Aims. The EROS-2 project has been designed to search for microlensing events towards any dense stellar field. The densest parts of the Galactic spiral arms have been monitored to maximize the microlensing signal expected from the stars of the Galactic disk and bulge. Methods. 12.9 million stars have been monitored during 7 seasons towards 4 directions in(More)

We present a new EROS-2 measurement of the microlensing optical depth toward the Galactic Bulge. Light curves of 5.6 × 10 6 clump-giant stars distributed over 66 deg 2 of the Bulge were monitored during seven Bulge seasons. 120 events were found with apparent amplifications greater than 1.6 and Einstein radius crossing times in the range 5 d < t E < 400 d.(More)
Some electrocardiographic appearances in cardiac pacing may suggest pacemaker dysfunction but in fact the unit may be functioning normally or have a minor fault which is easy to correct by reprogramming. A pacing rate different to that programmed may be due to the rate-response hysteresis or rate smoothing functions. Irregular pacing is often due to(More)
A seventeen year old girl with anorexia nervosa (32 kg; 165 cm) was admitted as an emergency after syncope with severe bradycardia resistant to atropine monitored over a one week period. Autonomic blockade confirmed the intrinsic character of the sinus node dysfunction with chronotropic incompetence on exercise. Secondarily, a Mobitz I second degree AVB was(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate, in recipients of biventricular pacing systems, the risk of asystole due to ventricular pacing inhibition by sensing the left atrial signals by the LV lead at conventional sensitivity. Long-term ventricular sensitivity was programmed at > or = 4 m V in 17 consecutive recipients of ventricular resynchronization systems(More)
Cardiac echodoppler is an efficient tool to analyse cardiac mechanic loop. Diastolic and systolic desynchronisation criteria are analysed. It should allow a more efficient selection of patients who could take benefit of resynchronization therapy, but also to choose resynchronization system, to program optimal atrioventricular delay, interventricular delay(More)
Cardiac pacing has been proposed for patients with advanced heart failure refractory to optimal drug treatment and having conduction disorders to resynchronize mechanical activity of the heart. Activation asynchronism as caused by bundle branch block results in alteration of systolic function and arrhythmias. A too short or too long atrio-ventricular delay(More)
