Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A sixty-six-year-old man with severe aortic stenosis, in whom simultaneous and continuous monitoring of the electrocardiogram and arterial blood pressure was performed immediately before, during, and following recovery from exercise-induced syncope, is reported. During exercise the patient developed anginal pain associated with a gradual fall of arterial blood pressure followed by syncope. At the onset of the syncope, arterial blood pressure was extremely low, and the electrocardiogram showed sinus tachycardia. It was assumed from these findings that profound hypotension, induced by peripheral vasodilatation and ischemic myocardial depression leading to inappropriately low cardiac output, was the underlying factor mainly responsible for the occurrence of exercise-induced syncope in the present case.
