Abstract Introduction We sought to assess the prognostic impact of left atrial (LA) size on long-term outcomes of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Methods We studied 200 consecutive patients admitted to a single center between January 2010 and December 2014 with non-fatal STEMI treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) who underwent a comprehensive echocardiographic examination at discharge. LA volume was estimated by the area-length method. The left atriu...

A 52-year-old Caucasian woman with a history of hypertension since age 30 was referred to cardiology department due to aortic stenosis. She had exertional dyspnoea, without thoracic pain or syncope. There was no blood pressure gradient between upper and lower extremities. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed bicuspid aortic valve, severe valvular aortic stenosis and dilation of ascending aorta (figure 1). There was also a tapering of the descending aorta, with turbulent flow and a systolic pe...

A 47-year-old Caucasian male presented with exertional dyspnoea and thoracic pain within the last month. At physical examination, he had bradycardia (heart rate of 45 beats per minute), fever, and a diastolic murmur. Electrocardiogram demonstrated complete atrioventricular block ( A ). Transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiogram revealed severe aortic regurgitation due to dilatation and thickening of the …

Objectives:The incidence of mechanical complications after acute myocardial infarction has markedly declined with the advent of reperfusion. Nevertheless there is some controversy about the equal effectiveness of the different reperfusion therapies in preventing these complications. We aimed to analyse how reperfusion therapy and treatment delay relate to the incidence of mechanical complications in a population of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients.Methods:We analysed all STEMI...

Background Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is frequently associated with cardiovascular disease. Its diagnosis seems to be related with poor prognosis. Aim To determine the prevalence of OSA in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Evaluate the prognostic impact of OSA and CPAP therapy in these patients. Methods Prospective study of 73 patients diagnosed with ACS. A polysomnography was performed in all patients. An Apnea-hypopnea index >5 was considered diagnostic of OSA and patients were r...
