Patients with arterial hypertension do frequently have cardiovascular complications. Echocardiography is needed in those patients, where cardiac damage is suspected. However, systematic echocardiographic screening for the determination of left ventricular mass in patients with hypertension is not needed.
Essential hypertension remains poorly understood, despite the enormous efforts of research, which allowed understanding certain physiopathological and treatment mechanisms.
A 34-year old woman presented to the emergency department with a wake-up stroke, after onset of a sensomotoric paresis of the right arm and motoric aphasia.
This short and interesting case demonstrates very aptly the potential clinical utility of provocation testing for coronary artery spasms and briefly discusses the uncertainty encountered in interpreting the test.
This case report describes the use of a transthoracic echocardiographic transducer and scanner to assess for upper limb hyper-perfusion in a patient with an axillary artery site for VA ECMO return flow.
A 68-year-old male with diabetes and hypertension underwent coronary angiogram through right radial artery approach due to inducible ischemia on stress testing. He had significant triple vessel disease for which he was advised revascularization.
We present a case of an incidental finding of congenital absent pericardium.
