A 74-year-old woman, with a history of hypertension and hyperlipidemia, was admitted to our hospital. She was found to have a sinus tachycardia with ST-segment elevations in leads II, III, aVF, and V3 through V6 in electrocardiography, hypokinesis of the left ventricular apex by echocardiography, and normal findings on coronary angiography. Blood analysis revealed an increase in the creatine kinase MB fraction, a significant positive detection in troponin T, and transient elevations in the conce...

Since there is in sufficient evidence on patients with coronary artery disease in Japan, the Japanese Coronary Artery Disease (JCAD) Study, in which 217 institutions participate, was designed to collect basic data based on evidence-based medicine (EBM). In this study, cardiac catheterization is performed on all cases to select study subjects confirmed as having CAD diagnosed based on the criteria that he or she has stenosis in at least one branch of a coronary artery to the extent of 75% or high...

Some angiogenic factors, including hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), have been reported to promote angiogenesis and improve myocardial perfusion in experimental models of ischemic heart disease. These factors are produced in various tissues, including myocardium. We measured the concentrations of HGF, bFGF, and VEGF by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in plasma and in pericardial fluid sampled during open heart ...

We treated an 88-year-old man with aortic valvular stenosis/insufficiency and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, who developed ventricular tachycardia due to pilsicainide toxicity. He was treated at the outpatient clinic of his local hospital, and was administered pilsicainide (100 mg/day) for atrial fibrillation. The electrocardiographic findings on admission to our hospital indicated wide QRS with frequent episodes of ventricular tachycardia. We diagnosed him as having pilsicainide toxicity becau...

Information concerning acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) after heroin injection is limited. Only one report has described the association between heroin injections and AMI in a young woman. AMI after heroin injection in a patient with a normal coronary angiogram has not been reported. We report a 38-year-old man who developed AMI after heroin injection. He is probably the first case of AMI with normal coronary artery angiograms associated with heroin abuse. The heroin-induced toxic effect and/o...

Coronary artery disease is the most important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with end-stage renal failure (RF). Hypercholesterolemia is an important risk factor for coronary heart disease. Patients with chronic renal failure (CRF) have difficulties in compliance with their care and treatment. Intermittent simvastatin treatment may help to increase compliance and can be a treatment alternative in patients with CRF at risk of coronary artery disease. We investigated the effects of si...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) has been treated with DC shocks delivered transthoracically, but in 5-30% of patients, the procedures fail to restore sinus rhythm (SR). We hypothesized that applying high energy shock waves to the chest may overcome the inadequate penetration of electrical shock to the atrium. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of higher energy external DC shock for the treatment of refractory AF coexisting with cardiovascular disease using a synchronized double external...

Premature coronary artery disease is very rare and complication with thrombus formation in the left ventricle is rarer still. A 23-year-old man was admitted to hospital for recent acute myocardial infarction after being struck by a basketball eight days previously. Echocardiography identified two peduncle thrombi at the apex of the left ventricle, which were confirmed with computed tomography. The proximal left anterior descending coronary artery was totally occluded. Following two weeks of trea...

Pulmonary and aortic valve endocarditis are uncommon especially in an adult patient with patent ductus arteriosus. A 27-year-old woman diagnosed with pulmonary and aortic valve endocarditis underwent surgical treatment. Here, we report our clinical and surgical experience in treating a case of double valve endocarditis with clinically silent patent ductus arteriosus.

ST segment resolution in ST elevated myocardial infarction has independent predictive value for congestive heart failure and death at 30 days.1-2) ST segment depression in unstable angina pectoris (UAP) and non-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) predicts high risk of MI and death and may discriminate patients likely to have greater benefit from aggressive antithrombotic and interventional therapy.5-6) This study assessed the effect of tirofiban added to conventional treatment on ST segme...
