Background: Atrial electromechanical delay (EMD) is used to predict atrial fibrillation, measured by echocardiography. Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess atrial EMD and mechanical function after anthracycline-containing chemotherapy. Methods: Fifty-three patients with breast cancer (48 ± 8 years old) who received 240 mg/m2of Adriamycin, 2400 mg/m2 of cyclophosphamide, and 960 mg/m2 of paclitaxel were included in this retrospective study, as were 42 healthy subjects (47 ± 9 years old)...

BACKGROUND: Stress echocardiography is well validated for diagnosis and risk stratification of coronary artery disease. Exercise stress echocardiography (ESE) has been shown to be the most physiological among the modalities of stress, but its safety is not well established. OBJECTIVE: To study the complications related to ESE and clinical and echocardiographic variables most commonly associated with their occurrence. METHODS: Cross-sectional study consisting of 10250 patients submitted to ESE for convenience, from January 2000 to June 2014...

Background: Cardiovascular urgencies are frequent reasons for seeking medical care. Prompt and accurate medical diagnosis is critical to reduce the morbidity and mortality of these conditions. Objective: To evaluate the use of a pocket-size echocardiography in addition to clinical history and physical exam in a tertiary medical emergency care. Methods: One hundred adult patients without known cardiac or lung diseases who sought emergency care with cardiac complaints were included. Patients with ischemic changes in the electrocardiography or fever were excluded...

Background: The QRS-T angle correlates with prognosis in patients with heart failure and coronary artery disease, reflected by an increase in mortality proportional to an increase in the difference between the axes of the QRS complex and T wave in the frontal plane. The value of this correlation in patients with Chagas heart disease is currently unknown. Objective: Determine the correlation of the QRS-T angle and the risk of induction of ventricular tachycardia / ventricular fibrillation (VT / VF) during electrophysiological study (EPS) in patients with Chagas disease...

We report three children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, two secondary to pharyngeal obstruction and the third secondary to laryngomalacia. All patients presented important respiratory efforts with inspiratory stridor during sleep, frequent obstructive apneas with important hipoxemia, sweating, and arousal episodes. Two patients suffered excessive daytime sleepiness, behavioral disturbances and development delay, and the third, intelligence in the borderline retardation range, and important heart arritmias (bradycardia with ventricular extrasystoles) during obstructive apneas...
