(5) Echocardiography can have limitations such as poor windows due to obesity or scarring and lack of definition of thoracic great vessels
. Although cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) improves upon these limitations, it may be contraindicated in patients with pacemakers or significant amounts of retained metal.
Our report demonstrates the development of a great vessel
vasculitis in a RA patient under treatment with etanercept.
About 12% of those are accompanied by congenital heart abnormalities including atrial and ventricular septal defect, aortic coarctation, transposition of the great vessels
and Tetralogy of Fallot.
There are various causes of a retroperitoneal haemorrhage; these include bleeding from renal vessels, kidney, great vessels
either spontaneously or after trauma.
However, the close anatomic relationship between lumbar spine and great vessels
including aorta, inferior vena cava, or iliac vessels result in more complications of vascular injury reported with the widely used procedures.
Histologic sections of great vessels
from all birds (study and control birds) were reviewed and then submitted for immunohistochemical staining for the presence of C psittaci antigen.
In contrast, a 90[degrees] thrust will aim the device dangerously toward the great vessels
. A slightly upward and right-sided deviation from the subumbilical entry will place the needle and trocar in the direction of the inferior vena cava and right common iliac vessels.
Incomplete or partial situs inversus is invariably associated with cardiac abnormalities like septal defects, pulmonary arterial stenosis, tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of great vessels
, and alimentary tract problems like atresia and stenosis of duodenum (4).
Contrast-enhanced MRI angiography (CE-MRA) can be performed to give an indication of the morphology of the great vessels
. Here a rapid series of images are acquired during the transit time of the contrast agent.
Background: Congenital heart disease is a defect in the structure of heart and great vessels
present at birth.
TRANSPOSITION of the great vessels
means the aorta and the pulmonary arteries, which carry blood away from the heart, are switched.
