Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery in a Young Female with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and its Operative Challenges: A Case Report

S Gurpreet, MRCS, SJ Vendargon, MS and SH Syed Rasul, FRCS

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: July 25, 2019

We understand that an autoimmune disorder such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus increases the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease. However its implications on patients undergoing cardiac surgery are not well understood. Here we present a female patient with SLE who developed coronary artery disease at a young age and underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery. As SLE is associated with vasculitis, we wanted to understand regarding the choice of conduit as well as its long term pat...

Variable Left Ventricular Dyssynergy in Recurrent Stress Induced Cardiomyopathy

Timothy E Paterick MD, JD, MBA

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: May 31, 2019

Recurrent stress-induced cardiomyopathy with variable regional location of left ventricular dyssynergy is an unusual clinical presentation and may allow potential insights into the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying the development of the variable subtypes of stress induced cardiomyopathy. This case report reveals a patient with reverse Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and apical Takotsubo cardiomyopathy within a three-week period. The discussion explores the potential pathophysiologic mechanisms re...

Metastatic Cardiac Tumor from Precursor B Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma with a Mediastinal Mass: A Case Report of a 12-Years-Old African Girl

Dorah Nampijja, Aliku Twalib, Kumbakumba Elias and Sulaiman Lubega

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 15, 2019

Cardiac involvement in metastatic tumors is not widely investigated. Commonest site of cardiac involvement is the pericardium. However, diffuse metastasis to the myocardium and endocardium is uncommon. Striated cardiac muscle, fast blood flow within the heart and unique lymphatic drainage make malignant metastasis to the heart rare. Cardiac metastasis is a late manifestation of malignancy and most of the cases are diagnosed on Post-mortem. We describe a case of metastatic Pre B-Lymphoblastic Lym...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 10, 2019

A total of 578 hypertensive patients were taken from cardiac follow-up. Among the hypertensive patients the magnitude of cardiovascular risk factors was 212 (36.7%). The magnitude of each cardiovascular risk factor was high. Magnitude of overweight and obesity was 33.7%. Concurrently 30.4% had habit of taking high salt diet and 27.3% were patients with dyslipidaemia. Patients with less physically active were 89.1% and 23.5% were consuming alcohol regularly. Whereas 15.9% was smoker. This study a...

An Unusual Thrombosis Mimicking Cor Triatriatum Dextra

Murat Surucu, MD, Haz─▒m Alper Gursu and I Ilker Cetin

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: February 25, 2019

Central venous catheters are commonly used in clinical practice. Right atrial thrombosis is a relatively common complication associated with indwelling catheter use. Thrombosis can be in different locations and forms within vascular and intracardiac structures. Echocardiographic images may mimic some anatomic and pathologic variants. We describe a case of a two-months-old girl with a thrombus which cor triatriatum dexter-like appearance in the right atrium due to the central venous catheter....

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: February 25, 2019

Renin-angiotensin system antagonists are the mainstays of blood pressure (BP) lowering strategies in people with diabetes. Perindopril a long half-life Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor offers the advantage of a single daily dose, usually empirically taken in the morning. We therefore aimed to assess the influence of time of administration on the effect of Perindopril on circadian BP in type 2 diabetes (T2D) individuals with previously untreated stage 1 hypertension. Twenty T2D patie...
