Clinical presentation of saphenous vein graft (SVG) aneurysms (SVGAs) is variable. We present a case of SVGA that caused a patient to have recurrent bouts of presyncope. We review the clinical presentations of SVGAs in addition to the diagnostic and management challenges SVGAs pose. We also highlight the importance of multimodality imaging in the diagnosis […]

Coronary imaging by echocardiography in the pediatric population is difficult due to small vessel size, high heart rate, and patient cooperation. This case presents an additional […]

Valvular heart disease guidelines recommend that true-severe AS and pseudo-severe […]
