BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Chronic subclinical volume overload occurs very frequently and may be ubiquitous in hemodialysis (HD) patients receiving the standard thrice-weekly treatment. It is directly associated with hypertension, increased arterial stiffness, left ventricular hipertrophy, heart failure, and eventually, higher mortality and morbidity. We aimed to assess for the first time if the relationship between bioimpedance assessed overhydration and survival is maintained when adjustments for echocardiographic parameters are considered...

The obstructive lesions in the outflow tracts of hearts with complete transposition of the great arteries determine the clinical evolution, prognosis, and the selection of surgical procedures. Their knowledge is basic to interpret the imaging findings. From the pathologic specimens collection of the Instituto Nacional de Cardiología "Ignacio Chávez", seventy-tree hearts with this cardiopathy were studied morphologically with the sequential segmental system. Thirty-two hearts had outflow tracts anomalies, being obstructive twenty-eight; among these lesions were: malposition of the infundibular septum, hipertrophyc left infundibulum, prolapse of tricuspid valve tissue through a ventricular septal defect, accessory mitral valve tissue, septal hipertrophy at the left outflow tract level, abnormal insertion of cord tendinae of the mitral valve, anticlockwise malposition of the mitral valve (first report in the literature)...

PURPOSE: To compare the correlation between the departure areas (DA), negative or positive, in patients whose electrocardiogram showed left bundle branch block (LBBB) and association with left ventricular hipertrophy (LVH) and myocardial infarction (MI), to the electrocardiographic (ECG) and vectocardiographic (VCG) classic criteria. METHODS: The study was carried out with 46 patients (27 males) with LBBB. These patients had hypertension (19.5%), coronary heart disease (34...
