Guidelines for lipid-lowering therapy recommend intensive low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol lowering for patients with coronary artery disease. Previous studies have found that many high-risk patients are not achieving their LDL cholesterol goals, and many patients, despite being treated with lipid-lowering therapy, also have elevated triglycerides or low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. To evaluate lipid goals in a “real world” clinical setting, the electronic medic...

Cardiac hemangiomas are rare cardiac tumors with fewer than 50 surgically treated cases reported in the literature. Incidence of valvular hemangiomas is extremely low, as cardiac valves are predominantly avascular structures. In this case report, we describe a 33-year-old woman who presented with pr

Abstract Pulmonary embolism after cardiac surgery is attributed to embolization from thrombus within the deep venous system. We report two cases of pulmonary embolism after coronary artery bypass surgery in which transesophageal echocardiography detected in situ right atrial thrombus. The right atrium should be screened for thrombus in patients who have pulmonary embolism after cardiac surgery. (J Am Soc Echocardiogr 1997;10:760-2)

Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk of performing cardiac catheterization or intraaortic balloon pump placement in patients with transesophageal echocardiographically detected atherosclerotic aortic debris. Cardiac catheterization was performed in 70 patients with atherosclerotic aortic debris (in 11 via the brachial approach and in 59 via the femoral approach) and in 71 control patients. An embolic event occurred in 10 (17%) of 59 patients with atherosclerotic aortic debris ...

Previous studies assessing the value of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in blunt chest trauma are limited because patients with severe chest wall injury often have suboptimal echocardiographic findings. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) can provide high quality images when the transthoracic image quality is poor. To provide complete echocardiographic assessment of cardiac structure and function we prospectively performed TTE in 105 patients with severe blunt chest trauma and TEE in 20 ...

Abstract Atherosclerotic disease of the thoracic aorta is common in the elderly and patients with clinical coronary artery disease. Although emholization can occur from atherosclerotic debris within the thoracic aorta, it is not commonly considered in the differential diagnosis of the source of a systemic embolism. In the current study, the prevalence, clinical significance and embolic potential of intraaortic atherosclerotic debris as detected by transesophageal echocardiography was determined....
