A Bridge to a Woman's Heart as the Cause of Recurrent Chest Pain: A Case on Myocardial Bridge.

Myocardial bridge is a congenital structural variant of the coronary arteries where a segment of the epicardial vessel is surrounded by the myocardium. It is an uncommon entity that may go unnoticed i...

Left Ventricular Myxoma Causing Sudden Death.

Sudden cardiac death due to a myxoma is rarely reported in the literature. Cardiac myxomas are benign tumors of the heart, most frequently located in the left atrium. Left ventricular myxomas are rare...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection as a cause of myocardial infarction.

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a rare disease that is usually seen in young women in left descending coronary artery and result in events like sudden cardiac death and acute myocardi...

Levoatriocardinal Vein: An Unusual Cause of Right-to-Left Shunting.

We present a case demonstrating an anomalous vessel connecting the left brachiocephalic vein and the left superior pulmonary vein, found incidentally on computed tomography (CT) imaging. This pulmonar...

An unusual case of mitral stenosis with coronary artery and left ventricular apical aneurysm.

The left ventricular aneurysm is one of the most significant complications of myocardial infarction and is defined as the expansion of the ventricular wall. The coronary artery aneurysm is characteriz...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.

A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.

Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.

A malformation that is characterized by a muscle bridge over a segment of the CORONARY ARTERIES. Systolic contractions of the muscle bridge can lead to narrowing of coronary artery; coronary compression; MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH.

Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.
