Kounis Syndrome: A Sting to the Heart
Tex Heart Inst J. 2023 Jan 1;50(1):e217788. doi: 10.14503/THIJ-21-7788.ABSTRACTA 67-year-old woman experienced pruritus, an urticarial rash, and acute, pressure-like chest pain following an insect sting. Initial electrocardiographic findings were notable for ST-segment elevations in the inferior leads without reciprocal changes, but a follow-up electrocardiogram showed pronounced ST-segment elevations in the inferior leads with reciprocal changes. Her troponin I level peaked at 3,053 pg/mL, and she was transferred to a large academic center for percutaneous coronary intervention. Balloon angioplasty was performed for 95% t...

Repeated Syncope During Exercise as a Result of Anomalous Origin of Left Coronary Artery With Intramural Aortic Course in a Teenage Boy
Tex Heart Inst J. 2022 Nov 1;49(6):e217677. doi: 10.14503/THIJ-21-7677.ABSTRACTAnomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the opposite sinus of Valsalva with an intramural aortic course (L-ACAOS-IM) can cause syncope, sometimes as a prodrome of lethal events, including sudden cardiac death, in young athletes. The detailed mechanism of syncope in patients with L-ACAOS-IM is still unclear. This case report describes a 17-year-old boy who presented to the hospital because of syncope following chest pain with increasing frequency during exercise, such as playing soccer and running. In a treadmill exercise test, a decrea...
