  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Ther Apher Dial. 2017 Jun;21(3):279-286. doi: 10.1111/1744-9987.12516. Epub 2017 Apr 12. Author information 1 Department of Nephrology, Hypertension, Dialysis and Transplantation, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia. Abstract Continuous veno-venous hemofiltration (CVVH) could modulate the inflammatory[…][]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Abdominal ultrasound showed liver congestion with dilatation of the inferior vena cava and of the supra-hepatic veins. Serologies for B and C hepatitis were negative.[] The echocardiogram showed two mild mitral lesions, with an average LA-LV gradient of 10 mmHg and mild aortic stenosis.[]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Abstract Serotonin syndrome (SS) is a potentially life-threatening condition resulting from excessive central and peripheral serotonergic activity. Clinically, it is a triad of mental-status changes, neuromuscular abnormalities, and autonomic disturbances. It can be caused by intentional self-poisoning, overdose, or[…][]

Abstract We herein report the case of a 25-year-old Japanese woman with left-main-trunk acute myocardial[…][]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    Echocardiogram showed a dilated right ventricle with severe pulmonary hypertension and a non collapsing inferior vena cava (IVC).[] Physical examination showed jugular venous distension, lung crecipitations, femoral bruit and pitting pedal edema.[]

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    BACKGROUND: Pulmonary embolism can be difficult to diagnose, particularly in those who are hemodynamically unstable and cannot be imaged to confirm the diagnosis. Echocardiography can allow for rapid assessment of patients in shock, but requires adequate transthoracic windows to obtain clinically useful information.[…][]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Ann Vasc Surg. 2017 Aug;43:315.e9-315.e12. doi: 10.1016/j.avsg.2017.02.020. Epub 2017 May 4.

  • Recurrent Pulmonary Embolism

    Abstract A man with Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome had worsening pulmonary hypertension secondary to recurrent multiple pulmonary embolism despite anticoagulation. Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy was done. However, the patient expired 10 days after surgery due to another bout of pulmonary embolism from his[…][]
