\s=b\Twenty patients with refractory rest angina pectoris were treated with intravenously (IV) administered nitroglycerin (mean dosage, 72.4 \g=m\g/min;range, 15 to 226 \g=m\g/min).There was a considerable reduction or abolition in the number of ischemic episodes in 85% of patients without overall substantial changes in heart rate, mean arterial BP, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP), and pulmonary arterial mean pressure. However, those patients with an initial PCWP of more than 12 mm Hg ...

Obstructive apneas produce high negative intrathoracic pressure that imposes an afterload burden on the left ventricle. Such episodes might produce structural changes in the left ventricle over time. Doppler echocardiograms were obtained within 2 months of attended polysomnography. Patients were grouped according to apnea–hypopnea index (AHI): mild/no obstructive sleep apnea (OSA; AHI 2 , p=0.0002); Δtenting height correlated with ΔLV end-diastolic volume (rho 0.43, p=0.01) and Δtenting area (rh...

Introduction: It is known that with increasing age impaired myocardial relaxation increases, while systolic function is preserved. We hypothesize that there is, in fact, subclinical left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction in older subjects. We test this hypothesis by assessing LV systolic strain using velocity vector imaging in older subjects with no known cardiac disease. Methods: One-hundred and ninety consecutive subjects with no known cardiac disease had their echocardiograms analyzed by ...

Abstract Saddle pulmonary embolism represents a large clot and a risk for sudden hemodynamic collapse. However, the clinical presentation and outcomes vary widely. On the basis of the findings of right heart dysfunction on echocardiograms, computed tomography angiography, or cardiac enzyme elevation, some argue for the use of thrombolytics or catheter thrombectomy even for hemodynamically stable patients. To investigate the outcomes and management of patients with saddle pulmonary embolism, incl...

Left ventricular outpouchings are increasingly detected on cardiovascular imaging. Herein, we describe the case of a 45-year-old man who underwent noncardiac preoperative imaging and was found to have an asymptomatic left ventricular outpouching. The patient underwent successful surgical repair of the structure. When left ventricular outpouchings are detected, the main differential diagnoses are pseudoaneurysm, aneurysm, and diverticulum. The outcomes for these conditions differ substantially, a...

Objective: The study was undertaken to assess the correlation between the presence and degree of aortic atheroma with degree of Left ventricular (LV) mass index and subsequent clinical outcomes. Material and Method: The authors studied the clinical profiles of 87 patients with aortic atherosclerosis and controls, who had undergone TEE between 1995 and 2000. Results: Mean LV mass index was 116gram/m2 in atherosclerosis group compared to 81gram/m2 in the control group (p < 0.009). In the atheroscl...

The number of patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has risen dramatically over the last decade. There are 300,000 patients in the United States with ESRD who are receiving hemodialysis (HD), and the incidence is increasing at a rate of 6% to 8% per year. Bacteremia, a prerequisite for infective endocarditis (IE), occurs at a rate of 0.7 to 1.4 episodes per 100 patient-care months. Few other medical conditions, except for chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, immunosuppression, and intravenou...
