Acute aortic dissection is the most common acute aortic syndrome. It is more prevalent in males and in the elderly, and has a high mortality. Hypertension is the main risk factor. Diagnosis is based on clinical features, laboratory tests and imaging exams. Treatment is usually surgical, although in some cases an endovascular approach is an alternative. Paraganglioma is an uncommon neuroendocrine tumor. Most produce catecholamines, and so usually manifest with hypertensive crisis, palpitations, headache and sweating...

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital heart disease usually diagnosed during the first months of life. Without surgical treatment, ALCAPA carries a high mortality risk, and disease presentation in adulthood is rare. We describe the diagnosis and management of patients presenting with ALCAPA in adulthood. This multicenter French nationwide retrospective study included adult patients diagnosed from 1980 to 2014. Eleven adult patients (mean age: 38 ± 17 years) were analyzed...

Objective: To investigate the clinical features and surgical treatment effect of patients with cardiac cavernous hemangioma. Methods: Clinical data of 9 patients (5 male, aged from 4 to 53 years old) with cardiac cavernous hemangioma, who underwent surgical treatment from November 2002 to March 2015 and the diagnosis of cardiac cavernous hemangioma was confirmed by postoperative histological examination, were retrospectively analyzed. Effects of surgical treatment were analyzed. Results: Four patients were asymptomatic (heart murmur presented in 3 patients during physical examination)...

BACKGROUND: Parachute tricuspid valve is a rare congenital malformations explained in the literature. In most cases, this malformation coexists with other congenital defects. The importance of this condition depends on its functional consequences. CASE REPORT: First case was a 52-year-old female patient presented with palpitation. She had a history of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed large secundum type atrial septal defect and all the tricuspid valve leaflets appeared to be connected to a single calcified papillary muscle in right ventricle suggestive of parachute tricuspid valve...

In general practice palpitations are reported in around 8 per 1,000 persons per year. The differential diagnosis includes cardiac and psychiatric causes, as well as numerous others e.g. anaemia, hyperthyroidism, prescribed medication, caffeine and recreational drugs. Factors that point towards a cardiac aetiology are male sex, irregular heartbeat, history of heart disease, event duration > 5 minutes, frequent palpitations, and palpitations which occur at work or disturb sleep. Other clues suggesting a cardiac origin are abrupt onset and termination of palpitations, positional palpitations, and accompanying symptoms such as dizziness and presyncope...

BACKGROUND: Arrhythmia-related complications and sudden death are common in dialysis patients. However, routine cardiac monitoring has so far not been feasible. Miniaturization of implantable cardiac monitors offers a new paradigm for detection and management of arrhythmias in dialysis patients. The goal of our study was to determine the frequency of arrhythmia-related symptoms in hemodialysis patients and to assess their willingness to undergo implantation of a cardiac monitor. METHODS: We conducted a survey of in-center hemodialysis patients at a hemodialysis clinic in Baltimore, Maryland...

We report a case of a 47-year-old female who presented with breathlessness and palpitations for two weeks. On clinical evaluation, bilateral pedal edema was noticed. A CT pulmonary angiogram showed a mass in the left atrium causing significant obstruction to cardiovascular outflow. After extensive work-up, the mass was surgically resected. Histopathological findings from the acquired specimen revealed a high-grade leiomyosarcoma with extensive necrosis and heterologous (cartilaginous) differentiation. The early postoperative period was complicated by cardiac tamponade and the patient died on the second postoperative day due to ventricular arrhythmia, shock and multiorgan failure...

We herein report a case of coronary artery injury during epicardial ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT), and describe an effective method to combat such an injury. A male patient presented with recurrent palpitations which was refractory to medications, with a history of clinically documented VT during the symptomatic episodes. The ablation procedure was performed at the great cardiac vein/anterior interventricular vein (GCV/AIV) junction, in part because pace mapping showed a 12/12 match, and activation map of VT demonstrated the earliest activation site at GCV/AIV junction...

Exercise is associated with unequivocal health benefits and results in many structural and functional changes of the myocardium that enhance performance and prevent heart failure. However, intense exercise also presents a significant hemodynamic challenge in which the right-sided heart chambers are exposed to a disproportionate increase in afterload and wall stress that can manifest as myocardial fatigue or even damage if intense exercise is sustained for prolonged periods. This review focuses on the physiological factors that result in a disproportionate load on the right ventricle during exercise and the long-term consequences...

The fluoritum is used for gynecology frequently and it's for those diseases: kidney yang deficiency, Gong cold sterility, palpitation due to fright, insomnia and dreaminess and cold cough. It's ruled in Chinese Pharmacopoeia (1985 edition) that the fluoritum originates from fluorite which belongs to fluoride minerals. Its main content is CaF2. The colors are of differents grades with purple or green. In the market, there are large differences in quality and it has various colors. Besides of the ruled color of purple and green, white and yellow are also common colors...
