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 …

Abstract Tricuspid stenosis (TS) is an uncommon complication of transvenous ventricular pacemaker implantation, with few cases reported in the literature. The mechanisms described are obstruction of right ventricular inflow by tricuspid vegetations (endocarditis), multiple pacemaker leads and tricuspid valve (TV) fibrosis secondary to perforation or laceration of the TV leaflets, or adherence between redundant portions of the lead and valvular and subvalvular tissue. We report two cases of sever...
