Few data have been published on the course of oxalosis cardiomyopathy after combined liver and kidney transplantation in hyperoxaluria patients with myocardial involvement. We report the case of a primary hyperoxaluria type I patient with renal failure who developed end-stage cardiomyopathy. Left venticulography showed severe diffuse hypokinesia and left ventricular ejection fraction was calculated at 12%. Endomyocardial biopsy demonstrated platelike calcium oxalate crystals within the myocardium and the connective tissue, and mild perivascular fibrosis. The patient was first considered for combined liver-heart-kidney transplantation, but as his cardiac function improved slightly with an intensive dialysis program, combined liver and kidney transplantation was performed. Normal cardiac function was demonstrated at 1-year follow-up, and comparative endomyocardial biopsy showed regression of the myocardial oxalate deposits. This case adds stronger clinical, hemodynamic, and histopathological evidence that severe oxalosis cardiomyopathy may be reversed after combined liver and kidney transplantation. [less ▲]

We report a case of mechanical flow obstruction after heart transplantation caused by a prominent left atrium suture with a "pursestring" effect. The diagnosis was achieved by transesophageal echocardiography. The mean transstenotic gradient was measured at 13 mm Hg. Because of the profound hemodynamic and multisystemic failure, no surgical correction was attempted. The postmortem examination confirmed the stenosis at the level of the left atrium. [less ▲]

We report the case of a 57-year-old female cardiac transplant patient in whom an aneurysm of the recipient side of the ascending aorta developed 1 year after transplantation. Although a mycotic origin was the likely cause, histologic examination diagnosed an atherosclerotic aneurysm. [less ▲]

Simple clinical data, available in all coronary care units, were recorded in 1,013 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In order to identify the patients at highest and lowest risk of mortality during hospital stay, a prognostic index was established from a stepwise logistic discriminant analysis of 10 clinical variables obtained at admission in a consecutive series of 477 patients hospitalized in 1 of 2 coronary care units admitting new patients on alternate days and treating them similarly. This prognostic index was applied to a comparison group of 536 consecutive patients admitted to the other coronary care unit. In the experimental group, 57 of the 477 patients (12%) died during hospital stay; 60 of the 536 patients (11%) died in the comparison group. As individual variables, age, previous history of AMI, anterior site and left ventricular function on admission were associated with increased mortality. Three variables were selected from the stepwise logistic discriminant analysis of the experimental group: age; site (anterior = 1, other = 0); and grade of left ventricular function (0 to 4). Prognostic index = 5.9019 - 0.8961 function - 0.5708 location - 0.0369 age. This index was validated in the comparison group. Patients were allocated into different classes with increasing index values associated with decreasing risk. Three subgroups of patients were identified: high risk of hospital mortality (index less than or equal to 1; mortality: 51%), intermediate risk (index 1 to 3; mortality: 18%) and low risk (index greater than 3; mortality: 4%). The use of this simple prognostic index may improve clinical management and selection of patients for intervention trials. [less ▲]
