It remains controversial as to whether mitral annular calcification (MAC) is an independent predictor of stroke. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is an association between the presence of MAC and stroke or whether MAC is one of the predictive factors of carotid atheroma and therefore is a secondary risk for stroke. Fifty-six patients who had MAC demonstrated by echocardiography underwent carotid artery duplex sonography and computed brain tomography with various causes were...

Embryogenesis of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is a complex process involving the formation and regression of several anastomoses, thus, various anomalies may occur. We report a case of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) accompanied by a double inferior vena cava (DIVC). A 76-year-old-man was admitted because of right leg edema and pain. Venography revealed two IVC and massive venous thrombus. To avoid massive pulmonary embolism (PE), it was necessary to block both the right and the left IVC. However, ...

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...

We investigated whether plasma levels of adiponectin in patients with both coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes mellitus (DM) are lower than in patients with CAD alone. We examined plasma adiponectin levels in 113 patients, 82 with CAD (40 of whom had both CAD and type 2 DM) and 31 normal controls. We found differences in plasma adiponectin levels between CAD patients with and without DM (7.8 ± 4.75 versus 12.1 ± 6.87 μg/mL, P = 0.002), between patients with CAD and controls (10.0 ± 6.27 v...

Connexin 43 (Cx43), a primary component of gap junctions, contributes to intercellular electrochemical communication. Cx43 undergoes dephosphorylation in early ischemia. We examined whether Cx43 is degraded in association with dephosphorylation during early myocardial ischemia and whether ischemic preconditioning (IP) affects the degradation after rat coronary artery occlusion. Male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent coronary artery occlusion for 1, 2, or 3 hours, or for 1 hour following treatment ei...

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...

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...

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.

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...

The purpose of this study was to validate whether dipyridamole stress ultrasonic tissue characterization with cyclic variation of integrated backscatter (CVIBS) compared with dipyridamole stress echocardiography and dipyridamole stress Tc99m-MIBI SPECT myocardial perfusion scintigraphy could predict myocardial ischemia in patients with chronic coronary artery disease. Twenty patients (16 M, 4 F) who had coronary angiography for stable angina pectoris were included in the study. Mean age was 62 ±...
