BACKGROUND The benefits of cardiac rehabilitation in diabetic patients are well recognized. We aimed to assess its impact on ventricular repolarization indexes and the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes type 2. METHODS From January 2012 to August 2013, 122 consecutive patients [diabetics (n =(More)
Intracardiac thrombus formation is exceptional in Behçet's disease (less than 50 cases had been reported). Among 180 patients with Behçet's disease (according to the criteria of the international study group for Behçet's disease), three were diagnosed as having intracardiac thrombus. All were male, the mean age at the time of the diagnosis of the(More)
Hydatid disease is a human parasitic infestation caused by the larval stage of Echinococcus Granulosus. The liver and the lungs are the most common locations. Cardiac involvement is rare and accounts for 0.5-2% of all hydatid disease. We report an unusual presentation of cardiac hydatid cyst revealed by ventricular tachycardia in a patient with a history of(More)
INTRODUCTION Arterial involvement in Behçet's disease is rare, present in 2-8% of cases. Aortic aneurysms represent the most frequent arterial lesions encountered in this disease and are associated with high mortality. CASE REPORT We report the exceptional observation of an abdominal aortic aneurysm ruptured to the duodenum, responsible of a massive(More)
Pulmonary involvement in Behcet's disease is uncommon and pulmonary arterial aneurysms are present in about 1 to 7% of patients. But despite their scarcity, they represent a life-threatening complication and are usually regarded as of a poor prognosis. Our study aims to describe the epidemiological and therapeutic aspects of this condition. Among 180(More)
The incidence of tertiary syphilis has declined in recent years owing to the early recognition of the disease and use of antibiotics. As a result, syphilitic aortic aneurysms are rarely encountered nowadays. We report the case of a 65 years old man, who was admitted to our hospital in June 2004 for dyspnea, cough and chest discomfort. On physical(More)
AIM Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is recommended for selected patients with advanced heart failure (HF) despite optimal medical treatment. However, the doses of pharmaceuticals in this population are often limited by adverse effects. We compared the drug regimens of 21 patients before and 6 months after they underwent the implantation CRT systems.(More)
UNLABELLED PREREQUIS: Amyloidosis is a rare infiltrative disease characterized by multiple clinical features. Various organs are involved and the cardiovascular system is a common target of amyloidosis. Cardiac involvement may occur with or without clinical manifestations and is considered as a major prognostic factor. AIM To analyze the clinical features(More)
