Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is considered the most common form of cyanotic congenital heart diseases (CHD), accounting for about 10% of cases. It includes four main cardiac defects, in addition to various extra-cardiac anomalies. This study aimed to evaluate cardiac and extra-cardiac vascular defects associated with TOF among Egyptian children, regarding frequency and types with assessment of multi-slice or multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) role in their diagnosis. Definitely, full detecti...
Amac: Bu calismada amacimiz frontal QRS-T acisi ile subklinik hipotiroidizim (SKH) arasinda bir iliski olup olmadigini degerlendirmektir. Gerec ve Yontemler: Calismaya, 41 hasta SKH ve 74 saglikli kontrol grubu olmak uzere toplam 115 kisi dahil edildi. SKH tanisi icin, serum tiroid uyarici hormon (TSH) duzeyi> 4,5 mU / mL olarak belirlendi. Tum hastalarin demografik, elektrokardiyografik ve ekokardiyografik verileri iki grup arasinda karsilastirildi. Bulgular: TSH seviyesi (5.7 [4.5-20]’e karsin...

Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) is a rare genetic multisystemic disorder characterized by mild to moderate intellectual disability and hypersocial phenotype, while the most life-threatening features are cardiovascular abnormalities. Nowadays, there are no available treatments to ameliorate the main traits of WBS. The endocannabinoid system (ECS), given its relevance for both cognitive and cardiovascular function, could be a potential druggable target in this syndrome. We analyzed the components o...

In the era of COVID-19, those special settings or indications for which standard transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) can safely produce benefits or advantages over minimized ultrasound imaging procedures need to be identified. Thus, the purpose of this study was to conduct a retrospective analysis with offline comprehensive conventional measurement of bilateral heart function and develop an appropriate prognostic model for in-hospital death. We performed a retrospective analysis of 37 consecuti...

Analysis of the cardiac vortex has been used for a deeper understanding of the pathophysiology in heart diseases. However, physiological changes of the cardiac vortex with normal aging are incompletely defined. Vector flow mapping (VFM) is a novel echocardiographic technique based on Doppler and speckle tracking for analysis of the cardiac vortex. Transthoracic echocardiography and VFM analysis were performed in 100 healthy adults (33 men; age = 18–67 years). The intracardiac flow was assessed t...
Abstract Introduction . Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is one of the most common diseases of the myocardium in children. Meanwhile, the relationship between indicators of strain and electrocardiographic changes, their diagnostic significance for children with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy remains an insufficiently well-studied issue. null null Purpose. null Тo analyze the relationship between indicators of strain of the left ventricular and ECG in children with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). null...

Objective null Handheld ultrasound devices (HUD) has diagnostic value in the assessment of patients with suspected left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. This meta-analysis evaluates the diagnostic ability of HUD compared with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and assesses the importance of operator experience. null Methods null MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched in October 2020. Diagnostic studies using HUD and TTE imaging to determine LV dysfunction were included. Pooled sensitivities a...
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that patent foramen ovale (PFO) contributes to the majority of cryptogenic stroke cases in young people, however, the direct link is still undetermined. Here we analyzed the correlation between PFO and brain ischemia lesions in a cohort of cases that were long-term residents in the plateau to provide solid evidence to support the causal relation between PFO and brain ischemia lesion or cryptogenic stroke. METHODS Long-term residents with young age from Qinghai Pl...
