- Aortic Valve Sparing Operations: A Review. David, Tirone E. // Korean Journal of Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery;2012, Vol. 45 Issue 4, p205
Aortic valve sparing operations were developed to preserve the native aortic valve during surgery for aortic root aneurysm as well as surgery for ascending aortic aneurysms with associated aortic insufficiency. There are basically two types of aortic valve sparing oprations: remodeling of the...
- FUNCTIONAL SUBAORTIC STENOSIS. Brachfeld, Norman; Gorlin, Richard // Annals of Internal Medicine;Jan61, Vol. 54 Issue 1, p1
Discusses functional subaortic stenosis. Etiology; Diagnosis; Signs and symptoms; Pathogenesis; Most commonly associated congenital anatomic abnormalities; Classification.
- Model syndromes for investigating social cognitive and affective neuroscience: a comparison of autism and Williams syndrome. Tager-Flusberg, Helen; Skwerer, Daniela Plesa; Joseph, Robert M. // Social Cognitive & Affective Neuroscience;Dec2006, Vol. 1 Issue 3, p175
Autism and Williams syndrome are genetically based neurodevelopmental disorders that present strikingly different social phenotypes. Autism involves fundamental impairments in social reciprocity and communication, whereas people with Williams syndrome are highly sociable and engaging. This...
- Copy number variants at Williams—Beuren syndrome 7q11.23 region. Merla, Giuseppe; Brunetti-Pierri, Nicola; Micale, Lucia; Fusco, Carmela // Human Genetics;Jul2010, Vol. 128 Issue 1, p3
Copy number variants (CNVs) of the Williamsâ€“Beuren syndrome (WBS) 7q11.23 region are responsible for neurodevelopmental disorders with multi-system involvement and variable expressivity. Typical features of WBS microdeletion comprise a recognizable pattern of facial dysmorphisms,...
- The genomic basis of the Williams — Beuren syndrome. Schubert, C. // Cellular & Molecular Life Sciences;Apr2009, Vol. 66 Issue 7, p1178
The Williams-Beuren syndrome is a genomic disorder (prevalence: 1/7,500 to 1/20,000), caused by a hemizygous contiguous gene deletion on chromosome 7q11.23. Typical symptoms comprise supravalvular aortic stenosis, mental retardation, overfriendliness and visuospatial impairment. The common...
- Affliction Linked to Later Heart Problems. // USA Today Magazine;Oct2012, Vol. 141 Issue 2809, p14
The article discusses a study published in "Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology," which showed that Kawasaki disease, a childhood illness that causes inflammation of blood vessels throughout the body, is a predisposition to develop accelerated atherosclerosis in young adulthood.
- Cervical Aortic Arch. A�ιkel, �nal; Ugurlu, Baran; Hazan, Ey�p; Salman, Ergun // Angiology;Jul1997, Vol. 48 Issue 7, p659
Cervical aortic arch is a rare type of aortic arch anomaly that is presumed to result from persistence of the third aortic arch and regression of the normal fourth arch. Most of the patients with this anomaly are asymptomatic, but symptoms of dysphagia and respiratory distress due to the...
- DISSECTING ANEURYSM OF THE AORTA. Jackson, Albert; Slavin, Manuel // Angiology;Aug1953, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p357
Reports on several cases of patients with dissecting aneurysm of the aorta. Etiopathology of the disease; Difficulty in the diagnosis of the disease; Role of congenital defects in dissecting aneurysm.
- Syndroma Heyde. Peri�ic, Nenad; Doder, Radoje; Ilic, Radoje; Jovic, Jasna; Tukic, Ljiljana; Tavciovski, Dragan // Vojnosanitetski Pregled: Military Medical & Pharmaceutical Journ;Jul2006, Vol. 63 Issue 7, p673
Background. Heyde's syndrome implies an association of calcified aortic stenosis with the high gradient of pressure and angiodysplasic bleeding from the digestive tract. It has been proven that in patients with this syndrome, acquired form of von Willebrand type II A develops. Replacing of...
