OBJECTIVE: To explore effects of Tongxinluo Capsule (TC) on platelet activating factor (PAF), vascular endothelial function, thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) blood flow, and heart function in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients after delayed percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: Totally 80 AMI inpatients were recruited at Department of Cardiology, People's Hospital of Jiangxi Province, from Jan. 2008 to Sep.2013. Those in line with inclusion criteria were randomly assigned to TC treatment group and the conventional treatment group by random digit table, 40 in each group...

The Brugada syndrome is an inherited cardiac disorder initially described in 1992 by Pedro and Josep Brugada, with variable electrocardiographic features characteristic of right bundle-branch block, persistent ST-segment elevation in the precordial leads (VI-V3) at rest and sudden cardiac death. The genetic abnormalities that cause Brugada syndrome have been linked to mutations in the ion channel gene SCN5A which encodes for the alpha-subunit of the cardiac sodium channel. A consensus conference report published in 2002 described the diagnostic criteria for the Brugada syndrome and described the three distinct types of Brugada syndrome...

Cardiac arrhythmias are one of the most frequent complications in the immediate post-operatory period of cardiac surgery with extracorporeal circulation, this occurring in between 35% and 50% of the patients subjected to this therapeutic intervention. Among the causal factors, electrolytic alterations, direct surgical aggression on the heart tissue and alterations secondary to ischemic cell damage that is produced in the myocardial during extracorporeal circulation are found. Due to the frequency of appearance of arrhythmias, we decided to study them and know them in depth...

Case 1: A 52-year-old man presented with a chief complaint of palpitation. Diabetes mellitus was pointed out in 1992. Electrocardiography (ECG) revealed left ventricular hypertrophy in 1997. He visited our department in October 1997. Echocardiography showed increased wall thickness at the interventricular septum. The diagnosis was hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Holter ECG revealed nonsustained ventricular tachycardia in December 1997. After this, he visited our outpatient clinic. Echocardiography indicated ventricular aneurysm in January 2002, so he was hospitalized in March 2002...

A 66-year-old patient with terminal heart insufficiency (NYHA IV) received maximum medical therapy, but was also in need of an implantable-cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). The ICD functioned flawlessly for the whole duration of implantation. It reverted several ventricular tachycardias with anti-tachycardial pacing alone, whereas some needed cardioversion as well. The patient died on the fourth day of hospitalization for a routine check of his ICD. The post-mortem examination revealed, that the ICD was deactivated and that the data had been erased after the patient's death...

OBJECTIVE: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia. However, its precise electrophysiologic mechanism is still not well understood. Chronic symptomatic atrial fibrillation resistant to medical therapy can successfully be treated by the Maze III procedure (M III). Several publications are dealing with alternative surgical techniques. This study describes technique and midterm results of a Mini-variant (Mini) of the Maze III procedure. METHODS: During a 48-month period we performed either a M III (group I = 7 patients) or a Mini-Maze operation (group II = 65 patients) in 33 males and 39 females with chronic symptomatic atrial fibrillation and additional cardiac pathology...

BACKGROUND: Previous examinations have demonstrated decreased selenium levels in serum and full blood in patients with myocardial infarction. PATIENTS AND METHOD: 28 patients received a selenium treatment additional to the usual treatment of myocardial infarction. 19 patients with myocardial infarction with no supplementary selenium treatment served as a control group. Selenium levels in serum, full blood and urine were measured and the complications of the myocardial infarction documanted...

Idiopathic monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (IVT) represents 10% of all cases of VT and is usually observed in young subjects. The origin of the VT may be right ventricular, especially in the infundibulum, giving rise to runs of VT with inter-critical ventricular extrasystoles of the same morphology, or to paroxysmal sustained exercise-induced VT; they usually show left bundle branch block with right axis deviation: the triggering mechanism is probably a parasystole incompletely protected from the sinus rhythm (for the runs of VT) whereas the mechanism of maintenance is probably that of triggered repetitive activity (for the runs and paroxysmal forms of VT)...

Clinical and necropsy findings are described in 10 patients in whom the right coronary artery arose from the left coronary sinus and then passed to the right atrioventricular (A-V) sulcus by coursing between the aorta and the pulmonary trunk. In 7 of the 10 patients, the coronary anomaly never caused symptoms of cardiac dysfunction. In the other three, all of whom died suddenly, the coronary anomaly was the only significant abnormality found at necropsy: One patient had recurring ventricular tachycardis, one had typical angina pectoris and, in one, sudden death was the initial manifestation of cardiac dysfunction...

For the reduction of the functional obstruction of the left-ventricular outflow in hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy since 1978 in selected cases conventional VAT cardiac pacemakers with shortened AV retardation time have been implanted. On the basis of 4 casuistics the insufficient adaptation of these systems to unexpectedly appearing disturbances of the cardiac rhythm is demonstrated. Thus already extreme sinus bradycardias lead to parasystole by the unchangeably given asynchronous basic frequency of the pacemakers...

The exact recognition of arrhythmias (AR) is the basis for decision making weather to treat AR or not. During the past the field of non-invasive, diagnostic tools approached from a simple 12-lead-routine ECG to higher sophisticated methods. This paper deals with the advantages and disadvantages of those non-invasive methods for AR-detection. Exercise Stress Tests (ET) are of value for the detection of "exercise induced" ventricular arrhythmias and tachycardias frequently related to ischaemia or cardiac congestion...

Improvement of diagnostic procedures and control of efficacy are prerequisites for the adequate treatment of malignant ventricular arrhythmias. This necessitates a close cooperation between specialized centers which are mainly involved in the treatment of arrhythmia patients and physicians in private practice. The significance of antiarrhythmic treatment concerning the improvement of prognosis of patients with ventricular arrhythmias has to be defined by follow-up.

The effect of a standardized psychological stress test on frequency and severity of ventricular extrasystoles was compared in 42 patients with the results of 24-hour ECG monitoring and of an exercise ECG test. Frequent ventricular extrasystoles (greater than 1/min) occurred in the 24-hour-ECG in 22, in the psychological stress test in 24 and on physical exercise in 22 patients. 24-hour monitoring gave the only positive finding in ten, the psychological stress test in six, the exercise test in four. Complex arrhythmias (coupled or runs of ventricular extrasystoles) occurred in the 24-hour ECG in 30, with the psychological stress test in 16 and the exercise test in 12 patients...
