The results of the alcohol ablation are very well depicted with mri [19]. On the left a 3-chamber late enhancement image before and after alcohol ablation. Note the transmural infarction of the basal septum (arrow). Continue with the 3-chamber movie pre-alcohol ablation. Hocm (4) on the left a 3-chamber movie of the same patient before the alcohol ablation. Notice the systolic anterior movement of the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve and the mitral regurgitation. viagra online without prescription canada On the left the 3-chamber movie post-alcohol ablation with thinning of the basal septum and normalization of the function of the mitral valve. viagra canada Restrictive cardiomyopathy - amyloidosis the most common cause of restrictive cardiomyopathy is amyloidosis [20]. buy cheap viagra pills Amyloid deposits in the myocardium cause abnormal diastolic function with biatrial enlargement, concentric thickening of the left ventricle and reduced systolic function of usually both ventricles. generic viagra Cardiac involvement in systemic amyloidosis occurs in up to 50% and has a poor prognosis with a median survival of 6 months [3]. price for viagra On the left a 4-chamber movie of a patient with amyloidosis. There is diffuse hypokinesia of the left and right ventricle. order viagra online Same patient, short axis movie. Amyloidosis: late enhancement late enhancement image shows enhancement over the entire subendocardial circumference, variably extending into the neighboring myocardium [21]. Sometimes it is difficult to find the optimal inversion time for nulling the normal myocardium [1]. 30 year old taking viagra On the left the 4-chamber and short axis late enhancement images. There is circumferential subendocardial enhancement extending into the neighboring myocardium. Axial and coronal black-blood images of a patient with constrictive pericarditis after cabg.

 The Whale Hunt: folk art painting on early 1700's tavern table top 


Welcome to Mata'u Art  

We hope that you will enjoy our site. Here you will find  unique art work that is in every sense "a piece of Nantucket"

About the artist:

Around the 19th century, Nantucket whalers sailed the Pacific in search of the elusive Sperm whale. Many Nantucket ships recruited natives from the Pacific islands including my homeland of Samoa. Nantucketer’s, in time’s past, referred to these island people groups as ‘the Kanakas’ or in Samoan, “Tagatas” which means, “peoples”. 

Coincidentally, I married a descendant of the Starbuck family, who made a prosperous living from the whales’ coveted spermaceti oil. After making Nantucket our year-round home and being re-united with our whaling heritage, I am creating unique pieces of art working with hand-picked stones naturally fashioned from the beautiful shores of Nantucket Island. As my Samoan whaler ancestors worked on the ships along side the Nantucketers in hopes of bringing in the mighty giant of the sea, I desire to bring the beautiful creature to life while preserving a part of Nantucket’s historical fiber.
