Happiness can trigger ‘broken heart syndrome,’ too: study
Dr. Jeremy Kobulnik, a cardiologist at the University Health Network’s Peter Munk Cardiac Centre and Mount Sinai Hospital, said experts label Takotsubo as stress cardiomyopathy...
Over the past 5 years, researchers have examined the utility of many experimental heart failure biomarkers that are not yet widely adopted clinically, to complement the role of B-type natriuretic peptide and its precursor. Candidate biomarkers have been identified from ...
Gene therapy approaches to enhance endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) homing may augment cell engraftment to ischemic tissue and lead to a greater therapeutic response. Therefore, we assessed the effects of ultrasound-mediated (UM) transfection of the ...
This study was designed to compare the efficacy of angiogenic gene delivery by ultrasound-mediated (UM) destruction of intravenous carrier microbubbles to direct intramuscular (IM) injections.
A 48-year-old female hemodialysis patient with Gram-positive mitral endocarditis developed progressive hemodynamic collapse. Echocardiography revealed a mitral annular abscess, which expanded rapidly due to connection with and pressure from the left ventricle. The mitral annular abscess had enlarged sufficiently to obstruct the mitral orifice, resulting in acute cardiogenic shock. The patient underwent and survived emergency surgical repair, and remained well on follow-up.
We describe the first reported case of a saphenous vein graft aneurysm mimicking a left atrial (LA) mass on echocardiographic imaging in a 62-year-old man 22 years after coronary bypass surgery. On presentation with worsening angina, a transthoracic echocardiogram ...
