Transplant Renal Artery Stenosis Secondary to De Novo Fibromuscular Dysplasia

Gabriel A Hernandez, Abhijt Ghatak, Jorge M Diego and Eduardo De Marchena

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 16, 2018

We present a patient who developed post kidney transplant renovascular hypertension due to Fibromuscular dysplasia, which was unseen on donor's renal artery angiography. The temporal relationship to the clinically manifested hypertension and the patient's profound weight loss makes us postulate her intra-abdominal fat redistribution led to nephroptosis of the transplanted kidney, causing stretching of the renal artery, exaggerating the Fibromuscular dysplasia and hemodynamically significant sten...

Ventricular Tachycardia after Use of Zuclopenthixol Decanoate (Clopixol® Depot) for the Treatment of Psychotic Illnesses: The First Case in the Literature

Emre Ozdemir Farris, Mustafa Karaca and Mehmet Serdar Bayata

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 14, 2018

Certain drugs can induce ventricular tachycardia (VT) in a different mechanism. Most knowed mechanisms are creating new reentry, enhancing ventricular after potentials or exaggerating the slope of phase 4. These kind of arrhythmias can or can not be symptomatic, sustained or non-sustained and have variable ECG changes: Monomorphic or polymorphic ventriculer extras, bidirectional or torsades de pointes ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Zuclopenthixol decanoate blocks postsynaptic Dopamine receptor in...

Platypnea-Orthodeoxia Syndrome: Positional Reversal of the Interatrial Pressure Gradient Demonstrated by Atrial Septal Motion

Serio Farris and Serio M Kerala

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 11, 2018

Platypnea-Orthodeoxia Syndrome (POS) is a rare clinical syndrome characterized by dyspnea and hypoxemia while upright that are relieved when the patient is supine. A right to left shunt in combination with several hypothesized hemodynamic or structural factors are needed to develop the syndrome. It is an important source of dyspnea in a small percentage of often-elderly patients. The exact mechanism for the positional increase in the shunt has remained elusive....
