Strong pressure exerted upon the abdomen by a fabric corset for a long period might cause abnormal increase in the intraabdominal pressure. This may possibly result in disturbance of the viscera. Therefore, we measured changes in the intraabdominal pressure and the pressures in the abdominal aorta, vena cava and portal vein. We also examined the(More)
BACKGROUND Some patients with congenital complete atrioventricular block (CCAVB) develop dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) after pacemaker implantation (PMI).
