Atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia in a patient with ebstein anomaly
G Mönnig, K Wasmer, L Eckardt
The first case of successful slow pathway modulation is reported in a patient with Ebstein anomaly and recurrent atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia. Typical signals were recorded during electrophysiological study at the slow pathway region between the His bundle and the coronary sinus where ablation was performed successfully. Thus, slow pathway modulation seems to be a safe procedure even in selected patients with Ebstein anomaly.
Late gadolinium enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance in becker muscular dystrophy
A Varghese, D J Pennell
Becker muscular dystrophy is a rare cause of dilated cardiomyopathy. A case of Becker muscular dystrophy is reviewed in which cardiovascular magnetic resonance showed previously unreported findings of extensive mid-myocardial late gadolinium enhancement. Similar detection of late gadolinium enhancement in conjunction with other uses of cardiovascular magnetic resonance may contribute significantly to the diagnosis and management of patients with this unusual and important diagnosis.
