ABSTRACT
An echocardiographic study of a 67-year-old patient with pseudoidiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis due to secondary pulmonary hypertension is reported. Autopsy revealed findings consistent with pulmonary hypertension, and no evidence of idiopathic subaortic stenosis was found.

    Anomalous origin of left pulmonary artery (AOLPA) from the aorta is a rare congenital cardiac malformation. We report a case of AOLPA from the aorta with partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR) in a 3.2 kg infant. Surgical correction was performed with direct anastomosis of AOLPA to...

Aim To investigate local practice in the follow-up of patients...
