In hypoplastic right ventricle the dysplasia of the tricuspid valve (TV) has repercussions on the development of the right ventricle. This paper documents the results of an anatomopathologic and morphometric studies of the tricuspid valve and the right ventricle in 25 hearts with this cardiopathy, which were morphologically analyzed using the segmentary sequential system. The following measurements were made: the annulus of the tricuspid valve, the thickness of the walls of the right ventricle, the ventricular septum and the distances from the atrioventricular-apex (AV-A) and from the apex-pulmonary valve (A-PV)...

Atrial fibrillation and embolic events are the most common clinical symptoms of congenital right- or left-atrial aneurysms. We report an a case of righ-atrial aneurysm, in a patient with typical history of atrial fibrillation and history of stroke. The aneurysm was resected, but the patient suffered from acute embolic occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery on the fourth postoperative day despite of systemic heparinization with 300 IU/kg bw per 24 hours.

Reversed end-diastolic umbilical artery velocities and a reduced chorionic sac were first seen at 10 weeks in a pregnancy subsequently showing a normal male karyotype on chorionic villi. Four weeks later Doppler studies demonstrated normal umbilical artery waveforms. At 20 weeks, ultrasound examination of the fetus revealed a mild pericardic effusion, hypoplastic righ heart with hypertrophic myocardium and a single umbilical artery, suggesting pulmonary atresia. After neonatal death, pathological studies confirmed pulmonary atresia...

OBJECTIVE: To assess fetal cardiac function by Doppler echocardiography in intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR). METHODS: We investigated the changes in cardiac function in 64 normal fetuses and 36 fetuses with IUGR. Blood flow velocity waveforms were obtained from the aorta, pulmonary artery and atrioventricular valves. The following variables were measured: peak flow velocity (PFV), mean velocity (V), accelerate time (ACT), systolic volume (SV) and cardiac output (CO) represented the systolic function; the peak early flow velocity (PFVe), peak late flow velocity (PFVa), PFVe/PFVa (E/A), mean velocity (V) of mitral or tricuspid valve represented the diastolic function...

BACKGROUND: Ventricular tachycardia originating in the right ventricle may arise in the presence or absence of structural heart disease. The two main causes of right ventricular tachycardia are arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) and idiopathic right ventricular tachycardia (IRVT) originating from the outflow tract. This study was carried out to determine whether body-surface QRST integral mapping can differentiate patients with ARVD from patients with IRVT. METHODS AND RESULTS: Body-surface QRST integral maps were obtained during sinus rhythm in 8 patients with ARVD, 8 patients with IRVT, and 27 healthy control subjects...

The effect of inferior vena cava occlusion (IVCO) on end-systolic pressure-volume relations (ESPVR) of the left ventricle was studied in intact canine hearts. In 12 anesthetized open-chest dogs, left ventricular (LV) pressure and volume were measured simultaneously using a microtip catheter and a conductance catheter, respectively. ESPVR was constructed from LV pressure-volume loops during IVCO (10 sec) and subsequent IVCO release under 5 conditions: control, after righ or left cardiac sympathetic nerve (CSN) stimulation, bilateral vagotomy (VAT), and both VAT and bilateral CSN resection...

Myocardial infarctions which are derived from embolic source have an incidence of 5-13%. They are at risk of systemic embolism. The pathogenesis of myocardial infarction is similar to that of those myocardial infarction whose etiology is atherosclerosis. This make it susceptible to thrombolysis. We report 3 patients with either inactive rheumatic heart disease, coarctation of the aorta or mechanical valvular prosthesis as the probable causes of an embolic infarction. It was located in the posterior-inferior region with a dorsal extension...

In a 43-year-old patient with Ebstein's anomaly and a history of acute myocardial infarction by means of duplex ultrasonography and aortography the diagnosis of thrombotic occlusion of the a aorta was established, starting above the insertion of the renal arteries and reaching as far as the bifurcation of the aorta and the common iliac arteries. In the clinical picture dominated complete anuria with uraemia and marked hyperkaliaemia as a result of ischaemic affection of the extremities due to thrombosis of the aorta; at the onset of hospitalization also left ventricular failure with hyperhydration and later also signs of the hyperviscous syndrome...

High cardiac output failure/state (HCOF) is regular feature of some illnesses e.g. thiamine deficiency, hyperthyroidism, severe anemia, Paget's disease or arteriovenous fistulae. HCOF in multiple myeloma is reported quite rarely. 31-year-old man was admitted because of fatigue, dyspnea and subfebrilities. Heart rate was 116/min, sinus rythm blood pressure 110/60 mmHg. Chest film showed cardiomegaly with sings of interstitial pulmonary edema, echocardiography mild dilatation of the left ventricle with hyperkinetic wall motion and small pericardial effusion...

We report the case of a 29-year-old man with decompensated alcoholic cardiomyopathy who developed a Staphylococcal pulmonic valve infective endocarditis during hemodynamic monitoring, as a consequence of catheter-related bacteremia. As experimentally demonstrated, the damaging role of the pulmonary artery catheter on the endocardial surface plays a major role in the pathogenesis of related right-sided infective endocarditis. Occurrence of bacteremia in a catheterized patient should be considered as a high risk situation, and righ-heart infective endocarditis must be suspected whenever patient presents fever or bacteremia without obvious site of infection...

We assessed the utility of M-mode echocardiographic and clinical criteria for diagnosis of left-to-righ shunting PDA in fluid-restricted newborn infants. The presence of a left-to-right shunting PDA was established in 56 infants by 103 aortic contrast echo injections. The studies were graded negative (pattern 0) if only the transverse aortic arch opacified; positive (pattern I) if both the transverse aortic arch and right pulmonary artery opacified; and very positive (pattern II) if only the right pulmonary artery opacified...

In electrically stimulated strip from right guinea-pig atria histamine produced a positive inotropic effect and it increased the amplitude and duration of calcium-dependent slow action potentials, which suggests an increase in the slow inward current. These effects were apparently mediated by H2-receptors. On strips from left atria histamine produced an H1-receptor mediated positive inotropic effect, without alteration of slow action potentials. The mechanism of this positive inotropic effect remains unknown...

By means of transoesophageal atrial stimulation of higher frequency in patients with sinus node syndromes (n = 78) in about 60% of the cases a prolonged sinus node recovery time could be proved. After the end of the stimulation secondary stops appeared in about half of the patients, so that in 81% of the cases at least one pathological result was established. By means of premature individual transoesophageal stimulation (n = 99) in 2/3 of the patients with sinus node syndrome we contrived to perform a calculation of the sinuatrial conduction time...

Myocardial blood flow and distribution in animals with righ ventricular (RV) hypertrophy have not been studied extensively in the experimental laboratory. This study was carried out to investigate whether or not ischemia can be induced in the hypertrophied right ventricle. Ten adult foxhounds underwent banding of the pulmonary artery. One year later coronary flow and distribution were studied by use of radioactive microspheres. Myocardial oxygen supply and demand were estimated by planimetry of aortic and RV pressure tracings...

Seven patients with aortopulmonary window type I (proximal) were studied over a period of 14 years. This report includes clinical, electrocardiographic, radiographic, cardiac catheterization and angiocardiographic data on the patients. Associated lesions were present in 6 patients: ventricular septal defect (1 case), atrial septal defect ostium secundum (1 case), persistent ductus arteriosus (1 case), membranous subaortic stenosis (1 case), aortic origin of the righ pulmonary artery (1 case) and single ventricle (1 case)...

The risk of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias complicating coronary angiography is reportedly increased in patients in whom temporary righ ventricular pacemakers are used. Placement of the temporary pacing electrode in the right atrium or vena cava during angiography theoretically removes from the vulnerable ventricle a source of mechanically or electrically induced ventricular arrhythmias. This hypothesis was evaluated in 7,648 consecutive patients who underwent cardiac catheterization with selective coronary angiography, including 103 with life-threatening ventricular arrhythmic complications...

Repair of tetralogy of Fallot and ventricular septal defect frequently requires righ ventriculotomy. Although the mechanisms for right bundle branch block (RBBB) have been frequently discussed, the pathogenesis of this electrocardiographic abnormality is still unknown. To determine if disruption of the distal subendocardial Purkinje fiber network in the right ventricular free wall produced RBBB and if cellular electrophysiologic abnormalities in or near the ventriculotomy scar could provide a substrate for conductance disturbances, we investigated the electrocardiographic and electrophysiologic effects of experimental right ventriculotomy in 12 beagles...

We report two autopsied cases of an unusual ventricular loop in hearts with right-sided juxtaposition of the atrial appendages. Case 1 showed usual atrial arrangement, a concordant atrioventricular connexion with a disharmonious ventricular loop showing left-hand topology and double outlet right ventricle with normally related arterial trunks. The atrioventricular connexions were crossing, with the inlet to the left-sided morphologically right ventricle being posterior to that of left ventricle. Mitral hypoplasia and coarctation of the aorta were the associated lesions...
