Percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial alcohol ablation (PTSMAA) is not a procedure without complications. It may produce heart arrhythmias, especially those due to disturbances of atrioventricular (AV) and interventricular (IV) electrical conduction. The goal of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the anatomical patterns of the right coronary artery ...

Intracavernosal injection of a vasodilating agent, followed by color Doppler ultrasonography of the penis, is used to diagnose vascular impotence. The vasodilating agent is usually injected into one of the corpora cavernosa and the peak systolic velocity (PSV) of the cavernosal arteries is measured on both sides, presuming that the ...

Airway obstruction by retropharyngeal or cervicomediastinal hematomas following stellate ganglion block is life-threatening. The onset of the initial symptoms of retropharyngeal or cervicomediastinal hematoma usually occurs 2 hours or more after stellate ganglion block. We report the rare complication of airway obstruction leading to respiratory arrest caused by retropharyngeal and ...

We present the case of a 63-year-old man who underwent surgical closure of a paravalvular mitral leak. Immediately after surgery, transesophageal echocardiography revealed the appearance of a mediastinal hematoma encroaching on the left atrium and separating the esophageal probe from the posterior left atrial wall. The cause was an inadvertent ...

Pulmonary embolism may result in permanent or transient electrocardiographic abnormalities. New onset left bundle branch block (LBBB) is usually associated with myocardial ischemia. However, nonischemic mechanisms are also known to account for some cases of LBBB. Tachycardia, a common finding in pulmonary embolism, is one such mechanism. This is illustrated ...

Tumours of the heart are rare, and in the vast majority of cases are myxomas that have a benign profile. According to their location, their clinical manifestations differ but there are cases that are completely asymptomatic [M. Yuce, S. Dagdelen, M. Ergelen, N. Eren, N. Caglar, A huge obstructive myxoma ...

The internal anatomy of freshwater crayfish is strictly bilaterally symmetric, with the conspicuous exception of the vertically oriented descending artery (sternal artery), which originates from the heart and terminates in the subneural artery. Serial sectioning of 133 juveniles of the parthenogenetic marbled crayfish revealed that the descending artery was bilaterally ...

Two patients with a left atrial mass underwent preoperative cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA) to rule out coronary artery disease. CCTA revealed an anomalous tortuous vascular structure originating from the coronary artery to the left atrial tumor suggestive of neovascularization. Preoperative CCTA was useful for coronary artery evaluation and provided ...

Major components of the cardiac conduction system including the sinoatrial node (SAN), atrioventricular node (AVN), the His Bundle, and the right and left bundle branches are too small to be directly visualized by multidetector CT (MDCT) given the limited spatial resolution of current scanners. However, the related anatomic landmarks and ...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxomas are a rare but well-described cause of stroke that usually occur in young people. Cardiac myxoma can embolize to multiple sites throughout the body. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 45-year-old woman presented acutely with altered mental status and signs of lower extremity vascular occlusion. Pathologic studies confirmed the diagnosis ...

Myxomas, as other primary cardiac tumors, appear rarely. The most common symptoms are typical of mitral stenosis or peripheral embolism. The rarity of infected cardiac myxomas leads to numerous diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties. We present a case of a 67-year-old man with fever of unknown origin. Laboratory results disclosed signs ...

An echogenic band like structure was seen in the left atrium on two dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2D TTE). Full volume three dimensional (3D) TTE and colour Doppler established the surrounding anatomical landmarks, and demonstrated the absence of obstruction related to this band. 3D TTE confirmed that this band like structure ...

Embolic protection devices were initially developed for the treatment of saphenous vein aorto-coronary bypass graft stenosis due to the significant risk of atheroembolism, and their use is well accepted. The use of these devices for carotid arterial interventions is also well accepted due to the significant consequences of embolization in ...

In a 60-year-old woman with episodic exertional faintness, a large left ventricular (LV) myxoma attached by a pedicle to the apical interventricular septum and prolapsing through the LV outflow tract and the aortic valve causing a severe obstruction was found by echocardiography. Early surgical excision was successfully performed using the ...

During transesophageal echocardiography, a massively vascularized left atrial tumor was found in an 82-year-old woman with transient ischemic attacks. Coronary angiography showed several feeding vessels from the left circumflex artery and right coronary artery, which resulted in marked contrast enhancement of the left atrial tumor. Histological examination after tumor excision ...

Antiphospholipid syndrome is a well-defined entity that is characterized by spontaneous abortion, thrombocytopenia, and recurrent arterial and venous thromboses. A partially calcified right atrial thrombus mimicking myxoma with recurrent pulmonary embolism has not been previously reported in a patient who also had systemic lupus erythematosus and secondary antiphospholipid syndrome. Herein, ...
