The authors describe a case of pulmonary endarteritis and subsequent embolization to the lungs as a complication of a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Although 2-dimensional echocardiography has been shown to be of great value in the diagnosis of patients with infective endocarditis, echocardiographic detection of vegetation within the pulmonary artery and subsequent embolization to the lung is extremely rare and, to our knowledge, has been previously reported only in a few cases. In brief, our case not only shows the importance of echocardiography in making this rare diagnosis but also emphasizes the role of echocardiography as an e . . .ffective means of following up such a case Daha fazlası Daha az

This study was planned to investigate alterations of D-Dimer (DD), which is accepted as an indicator of procoagulant system, and C-reactive protein (CRP), which is accepted as an indicator inlammation in coal miners who were exposed to coal dust. Coal dust increases fibroblast proliferation, extracellular matrix synthesis and secretion of proinflammatory factors. So the effect of coal dust is not restricted to the lungs, but it also affects various systems. Especially its IL6 and TNF-? increasing effect makes us think that coal dust may cause inflammation and alterations in hemodynamic system. In this study, 34 males who had been wo . . .rking in coal mines were taken as study group and 32 males who had not been working in coal mines were taken as control group. CRP and DD levels were studied in blood samples of both groups CRP and DD levels were found to be significantly higher in study group than in control group ( Daha fazlası Daha az

Objectives: The aim of this age-matched, controlled, prospective clinical study was to investigate frequency and degree of erectile dysfunction (ED) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and to evaluate the results of only continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy on ED in patients with OSAS. Materials and Methods: A total of 90 patients were evaluated for potential OSAS. They were given an International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire (IIEF) and Beck Depression Inventory. Sixty-two patients with the diagnosis of OSAS were regarded as study group. Twenty-eight patients in whom the OSAS was exclud . . .ed, were regarded as the control group. Biochemical and hormonal laboratory evaluation were performed. Then all patients underwent a full-night in laboratory polysomnography examination. The degree of OSAS were evaluated by an expert from chest diseases department. Results: When compared to the control group, a decrease in IIEF-5 scores was found in patients with OSAS. However, this decrease was not statistically significant. After 3 months of CPAP usage in patients with mild to moderate and severe degree OSAS, improvement in IIEF-5 scores was statistically significant. Mean value of IIEF-5 score was 16.63±5.91 before CPAP and were improved up to 20.92±6.79 (P=0.001). Conclusion: It is not certainly possible to say that OSAS is clearly associated with ED. However, after 3 months of regular CPAP usage, ED complaints in patients with OSAS might improve positively. Trials with larger series may give more conclusive data. © 2015, Makerere University, Medical School. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Valvular heart diseases still continue to be an important health problem. Surgical replacement of cardiac valves keeps a widely used treatment method for the present. However, the efficiency of minimal invasive and percutaneous methods targeted to repair and replacement of the diseased valves has been searched for nowadays. The first clinical experiences and early stage outcomes on the applicability of these methods are encouraging. Nevertheless, it should be kept in mind that percutaneous valvular interventions are at their development stages. Long term confidence and efficiency studies of these treatment modalities are needed. The . . . present review emphasizes the studies on percutaneous techniques initiated in the treatment of valvular heart diseases. ©Copyright 2009 by AVES Yayincilik Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is relatively uncommon. It often occurs in healthy, middle-aged women without overt risk factors for atherosclerosis and is associated with the peripartum period. The pattern and severity of presentation are variable. There are only 5 reports in the literature about multivessel involvement. The etiopathogenesis of SCAD is unclear. Treatment strategy is not standard but is usually tailored to clinical features. Long-term survival of patients with SCAD who have had no problem at the initial event is good. The authors report the first case of unhealed chronic multivessel SCAD in the literat . . .ure. © 2005 Westminster Publications, Inc Daha fazlası Daha az

We report a 64-year-old Turkish man who presented with unstable angina pectoris. Coronary angiography revealed massive intracoronary thrombus, which completely occluded the distal part of the left circumflex coronary artery. The thrombotic segment and the rest of the coronary tree were free of atherosclerosis. The patient was treated with intravenous tirofiban, a glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor. A control angiography was performed one week later and showed total dissolution of the thrombus with tirofiban therapy. Copyright © 2004 by the Japanese Heart Journal.

Severe depression with suicidal ideation associated with the use of the valsartan, an angiotensin receptor antagonist, is reported. The patient, who was unresponsive to antidepressant medication with two different groups, dramatically recovered following discontinuation of valsartan. Possible mechanisms and related issues of mood changes which caused by angiotensin II receptor antagonists, especially with valsartan are discussed. Clinicians should be aware that valsartan may cause mood changes.

The purpose of this prospective study was to determine the relationship between circadian blood pressure and left ventricular diastolic function in essential hypertension. The study population included 25 patients aged 56 ± 18 years with non-dipper hypertension and 25 age- and sex-matched patients with dipper hypertension. They underwent conventional Doppler echocardiography and color tissue Doppler from apical 4-and 2-chamber views. In non-dipper patients, diastolic left ventricular function was reduced significantly. The transmitral E wave decreased (0.55 ± 0.2 vs 0.62 ± 0.2 m/s, P

Background: Left ventricular (LV) long-axis function evaluated by Doppler tissue echocardiography-derived strain rate (SR) imaging has been shown to be a useful index of LV systolic function; however, it has not been evaluated in patients with mitral stenosis (MS). We examined the LV long-axis function of patients with pure MS and normal global systolic function as assessed by LV ejection fraction. Method: In all, 30 patients (22 women; 45 ± 9 years) with mild to moderate MS (mitral valve area = 1.5 ± 0.3 cm2) and 28 healthy volunteers (20 women; 44 ± 10 years) were evaluated by both conventional and Doppler tissue echocardiography. . . . Two-dimensional Doppler tissue echocardiography was performed in the apical 4-chamber view in the septal and lateral wall on the mitral annular level. Peak systolic myocardial SR and end-systolic strain data were measured for both segments. Results: Peak systolic SR (1.2 ± 0.4% vs 1.8 ± 0.39%, P < .001) and end-systolic strain (10 ± 5 vs 25 ± 6 s-1, P < .001) were both significantly lower in patients with MS than in control subjects. Conclusions: Patients with MS had significantly impaired long-axis function evaluated by Doppler tissue echocardiography-derived SR imaging despite normal global systolic function.
