Electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) strongly predicts mortality in patients with myocardial infarction (MI). However, the validity of LVH voltage criteria in this context has not been assessed. Reviewing the coded database of echocardiographic studies performed at one institution, we performed a retrospective analysis of 49 patients who had anterior ...

Congenital pulmonic stenosis (PS) rarely presents in patients over the age of 55 years. A stable asymptomatic course into late adulthood is the usual history of mild to moderate PS. Balloon valvuloplasty has become the procedure of choice for congenital PS, especially in children and young adults. There are rare ...

This study compared outcomes of two surgical methods for patients diagnosed with active condylar hyperplasia type 1. Group 1 (n =12) was treated with orthognathic surgery only, while group 2 (n = 42) was treated with high condylectomies, articular disc repositioning, and orthognathic surgery. There was no statistically significant difference ...

Endovascular treatment of intracranial dural arteriovenous fistulas can be very challenging. Conventional endovascular treatment approaches include transarterial or transvenous access from the common femoral artery or vein, respectively. A novel approach is described for endovascular treatment of an aggressive type 4 dural arteriovenous fistula. This patient, who had recently suffered ...

A culture of quality improvement (QI) is needed to bridge the gap between possible STEEEP [TM] (safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-centered) care and actual usual care. Baylor Health Care System (BHCS) developed Accelerating Best Care at Baylor (ABC Baylor), an innovative educational program that teaches health care leaders ...

A 47-year-old woman complained of abdominal pain, and a computed tomography scan indicated compressive obstruction of the celiac axis and a 4-cm retropancreatic aneurysm. An angiogram identified the aneurysmal vessel as the posterior pancreaticoduodenal artery. All foregut structures were supplied by this aneurysmal vessel. Via an open approach, the inflow ...

Hemorrhaging patients who cannot be transfused due to personal beliefs or the lack of compatible blood products provide a unique challenge for clinicians. Here we describe a 58-year-old African American man with a history of sickle cell-beta+ thalassemia who had recently received a multiunit exchange transfusion and developed hematochezia followed ...

A 77-year-old Asian man presented to the emergency department with bilateral pleural effusion and ascites accompanied with generalized weakness, dyspnea, tachycardia, and tachypnea. After an extensive workup that ruled out heart failure, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, and malignancy--including extensive laboratory tests, electrocardiograms, chest x-ray, computed tomographic angiogram, computed tomography scans of ...

A 52-year-old woman is described in whom cardiac sarcoidosis was diagnosed clinically on the basis of high-grade heart block, recurring ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and acute cardiac decompensation. Confirmation of sarcoidosis was not determined until necropsy. When it causes cardiac dysfunction, sarcoidosis rarely causes dysfunction of another body organ, although small sarcoid ...

Among developed countries, valvular aortic stenosis (AS) in pregnant women is primarily due to a congenitally bicuspid aortic valve, which occurs in ~1 % of the general adult population. Most asymptomatic patients and those with mild to moderate AS can be managed conservatively to full-term pregnancy. However, those with more ...

Twenty-eight patients from a single surgeon and center underwent atrial fibrillation surgery using a diode-pumped laser. A left-sided modified (pulmonary vein encircling with connecting lesions) or a complete modified Cox-Maze III operation was employed. Of the 28 patients, 23 were available for retrospective evaluation and Holter monitoring, and 21 patients ...
