Analysis of right ventricle function with strain imaging before and after pulmonary valve replacement
Background: Pulmonary valve insufficiency may develop after surgical treatment of tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). Severe pulmonary valve insufficiency may result in right ventricular dysfunction. We aimed to compare cardiac ...
A Report of Brugada Syndrome Presenting with Cardiac Arrest Triggered by Verapamil Intoxication
Background: Brugada syndrome is a disease characterized by a specific electrocardiographic pattern and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. We present this case with the updated literature to emphasise the need to ...
A case of neonatal arterial thrombosis mimicking interrupted aortic arch
Neonatal arterial thrombosis is a very rare entity with clinical findings resembling coarctation of aorta or interrupted aortic arch. A two day-old male newborn was admitted to another hospital with difficulty in sucking ...
Reversible cardiomyopathy-tachycardiomyopathy in children
Tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy (tachycardiomyopathy) is defined by the presence of a sustained tachycardia that results in left ventricular systolic dysfunction. Restoration of cardiac function is dependent on the ...
Case report and the surgical treatment of two cases with pulmonary atresia in which pulmonary arteries is circulated by coronary arteries
Pulmonary atresia (PA) and ventricular septal defect (VSD) can occur in a variety of ways, from simple valve atresia to a condition in which circulation to the pulmonary bed occurs through collateral arteries separated ...
Evaluation of right ventricular function in operated tetralogy of Fallot patients with tissue Doppler imaging before and after pulmonary valve replacement
Background: This study aims to investigate the efficacy of tissue Doppler echocardiography for the diagnosis of right ventricular dysfunction and for the evaluation of the response to pulmonary valve replacement. Methods: ...
