Supravalvular Aortic Stenosis
TLDR
The presence of supravalvular aortic stenosis in mentally retarded patients with the unusual facial features here detailed may constitute a syndrome that has not previously been described. Expand
Congenital diverticulum of the left ventricle.
TLDR
Preoperative angiocardiograms showed no obstruction to outflow from the diverticulum, the mechanism previously postulated as contributing to the spontaneous rupture and death reported in over half of the patients with this lesion. Expand
Underdeveloped right ventricle and pulmonary stenosis.
TLDR
Cardiac catheterization data before and after correction of the cyanotic congenital malformation indicate that the right-to-left shunt at atrial level is caused by the abnormal filling resistance of the small right ventricle. Expand

Severe Hypertension Treated with Ganglion-blocking Drugs in a General Hospital
TLDR
The recent introduction of bretylium tosylate and guanethidine, potent hypotensive agents with a different mode of action, makes the time opportune to survey the effectiveness of ganglion-blocking drugs. Expand
Presystolic atriogenic mitral reflux developed at abnormally long PR intervals.
Atrial and ventricular systoles were controlled electronically in non-thoracotomized dogs with acute heart block. Videodensitometer analysis of selective left ventricular videoangiograms showedExpand
Initial Experiences with Extracorporeal Circulation in Intracardiac Surgery
TLDR
Every qualified medical practitioner, whether his career is in the hospital, general practice, or local authority services, will know how to make use of the wide range of assistance that local authorities now provide, and how they can help him in his patient-care and remove some of the causes of the ill-health and unhappiness of those who appeal to him for help and advice.

Effect of Ventricular Extrasystoles on Closure of Mitral Valve
TLDR
Recurrent ventricular ectopic systoles interposed once per cycle were associated with minor reflux when introduced in mid-cycle and when interposed early in the cardiac cycle, extrasystolic potentiation of the primary ventricular contraction occurred, and no or minimal mitral reflux was observed.
