PROFILASSI ENDOCARDITE BATTERICA

Se sei un cardiopatico stampa queste informazioni e consegnale al tuo medico. Puoi anche scaricare una versione PDF sul sito dell’American Heart Association.

Si deve praticare terapia antibiotica per la profilassi dell’endocardite
batterica, ogni qualvolta debba essere sottoposto a manipolazioni
chirurgiche sia di tipo diagnostico che terapeutico come è
indicato nell’allegato schema.


PROPHYLAXIS of BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS 1

If you have congenital heart disease, print out this information and give it to your physician. You can also download a PDF version of the wallet card from AHA.

Antibiotic therapy must be practiced for prophylaxis of the bacterial endocarditis, every tyme the patient must be take surgical manipulations as of diagnostic or therapeutic type, as is indicated in the attached outline.

SOMMARIO
Il furto diastolico duttale nei neonati con DOTTO ARTERIOSO PERVIO (DAP) può generare ischemia distrettuale.Gi AA propongono una classificazione derivata dal Doppler di cinque tipi di profili Doppler correlati semiquanitativamente all’entità dello shunt duttale che può influenzare l’evoluzione ed il trattamento.<

SUMMARY
Diastolic ductal steal in newborns with patent ductus ?arteriosus (PDA) ?may generate distrectual ischemia. The AA. propose a Doppler derived classification of five types of fluximetric patterns correlated semiquanitatively to the entity of ductal shunt wich may affect the clinical outcome and management.

The failures of current medical therapeutics for the management of fetal complete atrioventricular
block with hydrops fetalis, as well as the increasing number of fetuses at risk for acute bradycardia during interventional procedures and fetal surgeries, have inspired the author of this article to develop a monolithic pacemaker designed for closed-thorax, closed-uterus, closed–maternal abdomen over-the-wire deployment under ultrasound guidance.

Supraventricular tachycardia is the most common clinically significant fetal tachycardia. The diagnosis is usually made at routine sonographic workup during the second-third trimester of pregnancy. Treatment goals are cardioversion to sinus rhythm and reversal of cardiac dysfunction.

BACKGROUND.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and prognostic implications of the association between atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) and fetal arrhythmias in a population of high risk fetuses.<
