  1. Myocardial dysfunction in human immunodeficiency virus infection : an echocardiographic study of 157 patients in hospital in Zimbabwe.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine the prevalence and characteristics of myocardial dysfunction and other cardiac manifestations in acutely ill hospital patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in Zimbabwe.

    Design-A prospective echocardiographic survey of acutely ill HIV seropositive patients.

    Setting-General medical ward, Harare Central Hospital, Zimbabwe.

    Patients-One hundred and fifty seven HIV seropositive patients admitted with various acute medical conditions over a 12 month period, January to December 1994.

    Main outcome measures-Detection of myocardial dysfunction and other cardiac abnormalities by cross sectional echocardiography.

    Results

    Eighty (51%) men and 77 women were studied (mean (SD) age 34.4 (8.5), range 15-60 years for males and 31.6 (9.0), range 16-65 years for females).

    They were all heterosexual.

    None was haemophiliac or an intravenous drug user.

    Echocardiographic abnormalities were found in 79 (50%) patients : 14/151 (9%) had dilated cardiomyopathy, 33/151 (22%) left ventricular dysfunction, 9/151 isolated right ventricular dilatation, and 30/157 (19%) pericardial disease (28 with effusions, three having tamponade).

    There were two cases of constrictive pericarditis and one of ascending aortic aneurysm.

    Conclusions-There is a high prevalence of echocardiographically detected myocardial and pericardial disease in this group of acutely ill HIV infected patients. (...)
