atrioventricular septum and diabetes mellitus

Jeng-Hsiu Hung, Jen-Her Lu, Chia-Yi Selena Hung
A complete atrioventricular canal defect occurs when an embryonic common atrioventricular valve fails to divide completely into 2 common atrioventricular valves. Tetralogy of Fallot is an abnormal embryologic development in which an unequal conotruncal division results in a small pulmonary artery and a large aortic artery. We report a case of prenatal diagnosis of a complete atrioventricular canal defect associated with tetralogy of Fallot.

Microalbuminuria (MA) is a cardiovascular risk factor. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between MA and the intima-media complex of the carotid and brachial artery, endothelial function, glucose metabolism, haemostatic variables and cardiac hypertrophy in patients with coronary heart disease. A total of 123 patients, aged 31-80 years, with a history of previous myocardial infarction and without known diabetes mellitus were examined with B-mode ultrasound of common carotid and brachial arteries, flow-mediated dilatation of the brachial artery and echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: There is little information about how previous angina influences the complications of myocardial infarction and also contradictory results have been reported. OBJECTIVE: To compare the risk factors for myocardial infarction, complications, performance of left ventricle, and coronary angiography findings of patients who had suffered acute myocardial infarction with those for patients who had not. METHODS: We studied 600 patients diagnosed to have suffered acute myocardial infarction...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the growth patterns of the fetal heart and the development of cardiac function during gestation in fetuses of diabetic mothers, and to compare these findings with those of normal fetuses. METHODS: Serial M-mode and Doppler echocardiographic recordings were made at 4-week intervals in 14 fetuses of well-controlled type I insulin-dependent diabetic mothers and in ten control fetuses at 20-36 weeks' gestation. The following variables were measured: interventricular septal thickness, left ventricular wall thickness, right ventricular wall thickness, ratio between the peak velocities during early passive ventricular filling and active atrial filling at the level of the atrioventricular valves, peak velocities, and time to peak velocity at the level of the ascending aorta and pulmonary artery...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
