Rupture of aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva into the right atrium mimicking tricuspid valve endocarditis is a rare presentation. We review a case of spontaneous rupture of aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva i...
This report describes a unique case involving an obese 16-year-old boy with a mosaic form of trisomy 13 and no previous cardiac history who presented with a new murmur, hypertension, pleural effusions...
We retrospectively analyzed 65 patients who underwent surgical repair of sinus of Valsalva aneurysm over the last 27 years.
Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are unusual, particularly when located on the left coronary sinus. They are mainly asymptomatic, however once ruptured, they are associated with high mortality. We present ...
Aneurysms of sinus of Valsalva, usually a rare presentation, account for 0.1%-3.5% of congenital heart defects. They rarely present unless rupture occurs. There are very few cases of unruptured sinus ...
The aim of this investigation was to assess the value of Systolic Time Intervals (STIs) as a method of detecting Left Ventricular Dysfunction (LVD) in patients admitted to ...
Hemodynamic instability was controlled in 27 patient during carotid stenting and it was showed that hemodynamic instability can be predicted by Valsalva maneuver before stenting and hemody...
The purpose of this prospective registry is to determine if patients harboring intracranial aneurysms have any predictive markers between aneurysm wall tissue, cerebrospinal fluid and bloo...
The purpose of this trial is to assess whether the new endovascular repair technique of the abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an adequate substitute of the conventional AAA repair.
Hypothesis- Radiofrequency ablation, targeting the sympathetic input of the sinus node identified by 20Hz stimulation at the junction of the superior vena cava and the right atrium, will e...
The dilatation of the aortic wall behind each of the cusps of the aortic valve.
The formation of dentin. Dentin first appears in the layer between the ameloblasts and odontoblasts and becomes calcified immediately. Formation progresses from the tip of the papilla over its slope to form a calcified cap becoming thicker by the apposition of new layers pulpward. A layer of uncalcified dentin intervenes between the calcified tissue and the odontoblast and its processes. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992)
Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.
Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
