We report the case of a 55 year old patient presenting a discrete obstructive sub-aortic membrane. After clinical examination, complete echocardiographic evaluation and cardiac catheterisation, an operative procedure was decided and the sub-aortic membrane was resected. The results were satisfactory but the literature reports risks of re-obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract. The article points out the importance of an early diagnosis and further stresses the major role played by transoesophageal echocardiography in the evaluation of the patient. [less ▲]

The European Societies of Cardiology. Atherosclerosis and Hypertension agreed upon a table allowing to evaluate the coronary risk after 10 years according to five parameters (sex, age, smoking, total cholesterol, arterial blood pressure) and aggravating factors (familial history, diabetes mellitus, low HDL cholesterol, hypertriglyceridaemia). The risk level is based upon the equations of the prospective US study of Framingham. The calculation of such a risk is mainly interesting before considering intensified primary prevention in an individual free of any cardiovascular disease. The efforts should first focus on individuals with a high coronary risk, i.e. > 20% after 10 years. As far as secondary prevention is concerned, the patients should always be considered at high risk and beneficiate of all available therapeutic means. [less ▲]

Previous studies have shown that the maintenance of cell membrane integrity and metabolism requires the persistence of residual myocardial blood flow. The purpose of this study was to assess the role of N-13 ammonia positron emission tomographic (PET) imaging performed early after an acute myocardial infarction for predicting functional recovery. Seventeen patients with an acute myocardial infarction were included in the study. Thirteen received thrombolytic therapy, 2 underwent immediate angioplasty of the infarct-related artery and 2 were treated with heparin. N-13 ammonia imaging was performed 6 +/- 2 days after the acute event and was followed by elective angioplasty in 13 patients. Using a 16-segment polar map display, regional N-13 ammonia uptake was expressed as a percentage of maximal segmental uptake and classified as normal (> 63%), moderately reduced (63-50%) and severely reduced (< 50%) based on values of tracer uptake obtained from healthy subjects. By echocardiographic assessment of regional wall thickening within 96 hours and at 1 month after the infarct, we examined the relationship between blood flow and functional outcome of myocardial segments in the infarct-related area. Regional wall thickening was graded on a 4-point scale: normal (1), hypokinesia (2), akinesia (3) and dyskinesia (4). Of 77 dyssynergic segments at baseline echocardiographic study, 43 had normal flow, 15 moderately reduced flow and 19 severely reduced flow. Segments with N-13 ammonia uptake > or = 50% demonstrated a significant improvement in wall thickening score at follow-up (p < 0.001), whereas segments with N-13 ammonia uptake < 50% showed no improvement in wall thickening scores (p < 0.001). The proportion of segments improving contractility by at least 1 score was significantly higher in the group of segments with N-13 ammonia uptake > 63%. The predictive value for defining functional recovery with segmental N-13 ammonia uptake > 63% was 86%. The predictive value for absence of recovery (uptake < 50%) was 54%. In conclusion, our data showed that early after an acute myocardial infarction N-13 ammonia imaging provides information regarding functional outcome. [less ▲]

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) can relieve symptoms in patients with severe angina pectoris refractory to conventional medical or surgical therapy. This symptomatic improvement may result from decreased myocardial ischemia. To test this hypothesis, positron emission tomography (PET) and potassium-38 as a flow tracer were used in 8 patients for the quantitative evaluation of regional myocardial perfusion at rest and after exercise, before and during SCS. Potassium uptake was evaluated as myocardial clearance (flow times net extraction) in ml/min/100 g. Tomographic segments were categorized as nonaffected and affected on the basis of the absence or presence of arterial stenosis on coronary angiography and on the basis of thallium scintigraphic data. In nonaffected segments, before SCS, regional myocardial clearance significantly increased from rest (28 +/- 4) to exercise (47 +/- 13 clearance units; p less than 0.004). A similar increase occurred after SCS. In affected segments, before SCS, regional myocardial clearance barely increased (p = 0.065) from rest (26 +/- 6) to exercise (33 less than or equal to 12). In comparison, after SCS, the resting regional myocardial clearance was slightly elevated (29 +/- 8) reflecting an increased double product, but did not increase (p = 0.192) with exercise (34 +/- 12). However, the magnitude and duration of ST-segment depression decreased during treatment with SCS. Anginal pain occurred in all patients during control exercise, but was attenuated in all but one with SCS. These results indicate that SCS improves exercise-induced angina and electrocardiographic signs of ischemia but this influence does not appear to be mediated by changes in regional myocardial perfusion.
