Uncommon cause of ventricular tachycardia in a patient with a giant pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Starck, Christoph Thomas; Zientara, Alicja; Alkadhi, Hatem; Falk, Volkmar (2012). Uncommon cause of ventricular tachycardia in a patient with a giant pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta. Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon, 61(07):603-605.

Abstract

Ventricular arrhythmias occur predominantly in patients with structural heart disease. The most common substrate is scarring due to ischemic heart disease. We present an uncommon cause of ventricular tachycardia due to excessive right coronary artery stretch in a patient with a giant pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta years after aortic root repair.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
