Sustained high ventricular rates during persistent or permanent AF can lead to a deterioration in left ventricular function, hence the requirement for rate control. Historically, digoxin has been us...
Located under your left lung, beneath the diaphragm, the spleen has two functions; lymphocyte production (which takes place in the white pulp) and filtration of the blood by phagocytes to remove mic...
Tricuspid regurgitation (tricuspid incompetence, tricuspid insufficiency) is leakage of blood backward through the tricuspid valve each time the right ventricle contracts.Tricuspid regurgitation is ...
Ventricular aneurysms are usually aftereffects of myocardial infarctions. When the heart muscle (cardiac muscle) partially dies during a heart attack, a layer of muscle may survive, and being severe...

Intraoperative pneumothorax is a rare complication with a high risk of cardiorespiratory arrest by gas tamponade especially on a single lung. We report the case of a female patient aged 53 years who b...
Metachronous bilateral hemothorax due to reverse Chance type thoracic fracture is very rare. In this case, we experienced a case of metachronous bilateral hemothorax, triggered by a thoracic fracture ...
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that apical opacities on computed tomography (CT) are related to occurrence of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) in young male patients.
Among patients undergoing cardioversion for atrial fibrillation, the presence of left ventricular thrombus is a relatively uncommon and challenging clinical dilemma. While left atrial appendage thromb...
