WELLENS SYNDROME OR PNEUMONIA?
Anno:
2024
Background: Wellens syndrome, also known as ‘left anterior descending coronary syndrome,’ is characterized by the appearance of T-wave changes recorded on the ECG and it is an ECG manifestation of critical proximal left anterior descending artery stenosis. Case report: A 65-year-old man from Bangladesh with a history of chronic…
CHARACTERISATION OF THE 12-LEAD ECG IN PAEDIATRIC CARRIERS OF PLAKOPHILLIN-2 GENE VARIANTS
Anno:
2024
Background and aim The PKP2 gene encodes the desmosomal protein Plakophilin-2, vital for cellular adhesion between cardiomyocytes. It is associated with classical Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC), a cardiac disorder that can cause malignant ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death in the young. The 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is an…
EXPLORING THE 12 LEAD ECG CHARACTERISTIC OF PAEDIATRIC AND YOUNG ADULT CARRIERS OF DESMOPLAKIN GENE VARIANTS
Anno:
2024
Background and aim: The DSP gene (locus. 6p24.3) encodes desmoplakin, a quintessential desmosomal protein for cellular adhesion, particularly within cardiac tissues. DSP gene variants can cause dilated cardiomyopathy, non-dilated left ventricular cardiomyopathy (NDLVC) and arrhythmogenic righ ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), cardiac conditions known to trigger malignant ventricular arrhythmias and cause…
A bizzare ECG
Anno:
2024
Electrocardiographic artifacts are common and may interfere with interpretation. We describe a clinical case where a limb lead electrode was placed near the pulsation of the radial artery, which created an artery pulse tapping artifact also called Aslanger ‘s sign or electromechanical association. This is a very unique physiological…
