SESSION TITLE: Cardiovascular Student/Resident Case Report Posters IISESSION TYPE: Medical Student/Resident Case ReportPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Amyloidosis is understood as an infiltrative disease in which extracellular tissue deposition of insoluble protein fibrils causes organ dysfunction. In primary amyloidosis, deposited proteins stem from immunoglobulin light chain fragments from an undelying plasma cell dyscrasia. Infiltrative deposition in the heart, although rare, can cause a restrictive cardiomyopathy causing heart failure associated dyspneaCASE PRESENTATION: A 67 year old male presented complaining of exertional dyspnea and lower extremity swelling...

Acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) is a pathology frequently seen in patients presenting to emergency departments (EDs) and can usually be attributed to preexisting cardiovascular disease. Heart failure alone accounts for more than 1 million hospital admissions annually and has one of the highest ED morbidity and mortality to date (). Historically, CPE has been managed by the treating clinician in a manner that is based largely on anecdotal evidence. Furosemide (Lasix), morphine, and nitroglycerin have historically been the baseline standard for drug therapy in CPE management...

Nineteen ambulant patients in cardiac insufficiency stages III to IV, eleven of them concomitantly presenting hypertension, were treated with Osyrol 50-Lasix for a period of three months. With a maintenance dose consisting on average of one capsule Osyrol 50-Lasix daily, effective and reliable elimination of edema and adequate recompensation of the heart was achieved by way of reduction of the body weight, decrease in ankle circumference, congestion of the liver and improvement of dyspnoea. In the eleven patients with hypertension grade I, the systolic and diastolic blood pressure was normalized under Osyrol 50-Lasix medication, whilst the blood pressure values of normotensive patients were practically unchanged...

Three cardiac surgical patients with acute postoperative renal failure were treated with a constant infusion of furosemide (Lasix) after furosemide given in bolus proved ineffective. Furosemide given continuously brought about a prompt resolution of the oliguria and tended to hasten the resolution of acute renal failure.

Twenty patients (8 females) with NYHA class II symptoms of chronic left ventricular heart failure completed a study to investigate the hemodynamic effects of intravenous and oral frusemide. Echocardiography indicated that frusemide 20 mg intravenously produces a transient undesired hemodynamic effect in the prediuretic phase without any influence on the patient's clinical symptoms. Once diuresis is established the hemodynamic conditions are reversed and there is an improvement in cardiac function. There is no evidence of a direct positive inotropic effect of the drug...

A three-day-old female infant was transferred to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit with chief presenting problems of progressive change of cyanosis and respiratory distress. Physical examination revealed tachypnea, acrocyanosis, hepatomegaly, undetectable pulse of extremities and oozing over the place of venous puncture. Chest roentgenograms revealed slight cardiomegaly; other X-rays were within normal limits. Complete electrocardiograms showed right axis deviation and right ventricular hypertrophy. Because of an impression of neonatal sepsis, the patient was put in an incubator with oxygen and antibiotics were given...

149 patients after open-heart surgery (correction of heart valve defects and aortocoronary bypass surgery) have been examined. Volume expansion was performed by rapid intravenous infusion of 200-800 ml of fluid. Hemodynamic parameters were studied by direct methods. Patients with initially high heart chamber filling pressure were subject to forced diuresis (bolus intravenous injection of 1-2 mg lasix), the changes in hemodynamic parameters were registered with gradual fluid excretion. Left ventricular function curves were plotted in the coordinates: stroke heart work or stroke index--left ventricular end diastolic pressure...

Feasibility of measuring functional reserve of the myocardium under functional loads simulated by extracorporeal circulation was tried in 36 patients with diffuse purulent peritonitis on filtration detoxication. Altogether 49 sessions of hemofiltration and filtration exchange plasmapheresis were performed controlled by tetrapolar rheography. It is demonstrated that persistent decline of systolic and cardiac output, an increase of central blood volume and occurrence of a pathological impedance wave in response to pre- and postload on the myocardium during extracorporeal detoxication may serve an indication of a subclinical myocardial failure...

The effect of lasix (in 51 patients) and strophanthin (in 16 patients) on the dynamics of changes in the amount of fluid in the chest and leg in cardiac insufficiency was studied by impedance plethysmography. It was established that in isolated insufficiency of only the left parts of the heart, parenteral administration of 20 mg of lasix led almost in all cases to a decrease in the total amount of fluid in the chest and its organs by 14% on the average; the decrease in the volume of fluid in pulmonary edema, cardiac asthma, and insufficiency of the left parts of the heart without acute manifestations is practically the same and amounts to 17, 14, and 12% on the average, respectively...
