We report here a case of an intramural hematoma of the esophagus. The extension of this was from cervical esophagus to lesser curvature of stomach intramural hematoma.
Comments on article Continuous shortwave diathermy with exercise reduces pain and improves function in Lateral Epicondylitis more than sham diathermy: A randomized controlled trial
I read very carefully the article “Continuous shortwave diathermy with exercise reduces pain and improves function in Lateral Epicondylitis more than sham diathermy: A randomized controlled trial.” by Babaei-Ghazani et al. (2020)  and I would like to congratulate the authors because this was the first trial to investigate the effectiveness of Continuous Shortwave Diathermy (CSWD) in Lateral Epicondylitis (LE) patients.
Coronary sinus rhythm is an ectopic atrial rhythm supposedly originating from a pacemaker at the mouth of the coronary sinus; recognized in the electrocardiogram by P-waves that are inverted in leads II, III, and VF with a normal or prolonged P-R interval. In myocardial infarction, this presentation can reveal a wandering atrial pacemaker. We present a case of a wandering atrial pacemaker with inferior wall MI complicated by complete atrioventricular block.
