McNeal-Davidson, Ariane; Fournier, Anne; Scuccimarri, Rosie; Dancea, Adrian; Houde, Christine; Bellavance, Marc; Dahdah, Nagib // Pediatric Cardiology;Jan2013, Vol. 34 Issue 1, p170
Most population-based series reporting on the coronary artery complications after Kawasaki disease (KD) originate from Japan. This study aimed to describe the complete series of KD patients from the province of Quebec in Canada, a predominantly Caucasian population. This retrospective case...
- IMAGES IN CARDIOLOGY: Percutaneous device closure of post-infarction ventricular septal defect with aneurysm. Burrell, C .J.; Zacharkiw, L. A.; deGiovanni, J. V. // Heart;Jul2004, Vol. 90 Issue 7, p731
Ventricular septal defect in association with left ventricular aneurysm formation has been reported. rarely. Researchers describe attempted surgical closure of' such a defect that was unsuccessful. A 61 year old man presented with a very similar defect 10 days after inferoseptal myocardial...
- Classic Intermittent Claudication Is an Uncommon Manifestation of Lower Extremity Peripheral Arterial Disease in Hospitalized Patients with Coronary Artery Disease. Dieter, Robert S.; Biring, Timinder; Tomasson, Jon; Gudjonsson, Thorbjorn; Brown, Roger L.; Vitcenda, Mark; Emerson, Jean; Tanke, Timothy E.; McBride, Patrick E. // Angiology;Nov/Dec2004, Vol. 55 Issue 6, p625
Synchronous peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) is common. Standardized questionnaires such as the Rose/WHO questionnaire and later the Edinburgh modification of this questionnaire were developed to screen for PAD. Little data are available on the sensitivity of...
