BACKGROUND Partial left ventriculectomy (PLV) has been performed without standardized inclusion or exclusion criteria. METHODS An international registry of PLV was expanded, updated, and refined to include 287 nonischemic cases voluntarily reported from 48 hospitals in 11 countries. RESULTS Gender, age, ventricular dimension, etiology, ethnology,(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the occurrence of congenital cataract in a Nordic country. METHODS In 1980, we constructed a database in the Department of Ophthalmology, Göteborg University, containing basic data from all cases in western Sweden diagnosed with congenital cataract. By collecting and processing these data from 1980 onwards, we hoped to improve the(More)
Advanced post processing of the standard acquisitions of echocardiographic data (i.e. 3 parallel short-axis views and 3 rotational long axis views) results in a total of 72 time-varying traces of segmental linear strains and 18 traces of segmental rotational data. If one separates the signal into endo, mid, and epicardial myocardial layers, a staggering 246(More)
Interest in left ventricular (LV) mechanics has recently focused on detailed 3D analysis of LV deformations. Our goal is to investigate transmural strain variability within the normal ventricle and during the early stages of ischemia using sonomicrometric crystals implanted into canine LV wall. In this study 3 open chest dog models were implanted in a(More)
It has been shown that inappropriate anterior mitral leaflet preservation during mitral valve replacement may cause left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction, usually with dismal prognosis. In this report, we describe a patient with chronic asymptomatic LVOT obstruction after mitral valve replacement with leaflet preservation.
