Lymphadenopathy, as a complication of gold therapy, appears to be an uncommon occurrence. Lymph node infarction has not been previously documented in this setting. The unique pathologic features in this case may reflect: a phenomenon specific to gold; early examination of the infarcted node; or underlying leukocytoclastic angiitis secondary to ...
Kaplan K - - 1986
Although several large trials have failed to demonstrate unequivocally that anticoagulation decreases mortality following myocardial infarction (MI), anticoagulation has been advocated to prevent embolic cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs). Since CVAs occur during hospitalization in only 1.5% to 3% of MIs, it is not justifiable to anticoagulate all patients after MI because ...

Anticoagulation may exacerbate possible tendencies for an ischemic infarction to become hemorrhagic. Little is known of any potential added risk of aspirin plus anticoagulation for such hemorrhagic transformation. A patient is reported who sustained a cerebral infarction from carotid artery disease and was treated with aspirin. Anticoagulation was begun and ...

Clinical and laboratory experience with circulating lupus anticoagulant in 3 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass procedures is reported. This circulatory anticoagulant inhibits activation of prothrombin by the prothrombin activator complex (factor Xa, factor V, and phospholipid). The presence of lupus anticoagulant was initially detected because of a prolonged activated partial ...
Polić S - - 1985
The AA describe a patient with congestive cardiomyopathy, probably alcoholic, who exhibited signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure and a pericardial rub, due to a right atrial thrombus (4 X 2 cm). The thrombus dissolved completely and the symptoms decreased markedly after 14 days of oral anticoagulant therapy alone. ...
Naeye R L - - 1985
In an attempt to determine the frequency, course, and outcome of maternal floor infarcts, 39,215 placentas and pregnancies were reviewed. The disorder is somewhat misnamed, because it is characterized by heavy deposition of fibrin in the decidua beneath the placenta rather than by arterial occlusion and ischemic necrosis of villi. ...

The effects of the antiaggregant substance ticlopidine and of the anticoagulant acenocoumarol on patency rates of aorto-coronary bypass grafts were compared in a prospective randomized trial. Ticlopidine, 250 mg b.i.d. was administered orally from the first postoperative day till angiography, while anticoagulation with acenocoumarol was initiated on the second to ...
Gianrossi R - - 1985
The aim of our study was to determine whether a relationship existed between echocardiographic evidence of left ventricular thrombus (LVT) and clinical course of myocardial infarction. We followed 143 patients who had had typical myocardial transmural infarction (82 with "anterior") and 61 with "inferior" myocardial infarction) over a three month ...
Hwang M H - - 1985
A 43-year-old man had transmural anterior wall myocardial infarction complicated by hypotension and anterior-apical aneurysmal formation. Despite continuous anticoagulation with heparin sodium (heparin) and warfarin sodium (coumadin), a large pedunculated left ventricular thrombus was formed. Four hours after uneventful left ventriculography, the patient experienced acute superior mesenteric embolism. An emergency ...
Martin G J - - 1984
There is considerable debate regarding immediate anticoagulation with heparin sodium for patients suspected of having acute cerebral embolism from a cardiac source. We studied 60 consecutive hospitalized patients suspected of having a nonseptic cardiogenic cerebral embolism who, with one exception, were treated with immediate full-dose anticoagulation. None of the patients ...
Pearson L H - - 1984
Acrodermatitis continua of Hallopeau is considered by many to be a variant of pustular psoriasis because of similar histologic features. Its clinical picture is unique and helps to distinguish acrodermatitis from pustular psoriasis. We present a patient with acrodermatitis continua of Hallopeau resistant to conventional therapy. We describe the beneficial ...

We have reviewed the risks and benefits of anticoagulation for cardiac valve disease before and after valve surgery. Though the absence of standardized reporting of complications and the paucity of well-designed comparative studies mandate careful consideration of the variables of individual cases, we have made the following general recommendations: Unoperated ...
Triolo G - - 1984
Immunological reactions have been recognized in cardiac disease and immune complexes (ICs) have been suggested to be of pathogenetic significance in the occurrence of post-myocardial infarction syndromes. ICs of IgA, IgG, IgM class have been detected in myocardial infarction utilizing a C1qSP and an anti C3 assay. A poor concordance ...
Sheikhzadeh A - - 1983
The course and complications of pregnancies in 46 patients with valvular disease and congestive heart failure with or without valve prostheses are described. In group I consisting of 33 women without valve replacement and without anticoagulant therapy one thromboembolic event was seen, emergency closed or open heart surgery was necessary ...
Nixon J V - - 1983
The identification of mural thrombus in patients with left ventricular aneurysm and mural thrombus probably warrants consideration of long-term anticoagulation. In patients with acute, large, anterior or anteroapical, transmural myocardial infarctions, serial noninvasive examinations are warranted to define a group of patients at high risk for the development of left ...
Jacobs P - - 1983
The rational use of antithrombic drugs centres on the fundamental differences in the pathogenesis of arterial or venous thrombosis. The major role of platelets in the development of occlusion in arteries contrasts with prominent fibrin deposition in the slower moving venous blood. Logically, antiplatelet agents are used to treat patients ...
Lee B Y - - 1983
We carried out a retrospective review of 45 patients (50 limbs) with toe gangrene not amenable to direct arterial surgery, and thus managed by lumbar sympathectomy alone. Follow-up data regarding toe salvage, limb salvage, and limb loss were compiled. At 5 and 8 year follow-up cumulative limb salvage was 71 ...

Anticoagulant therapy is appropriate for embolic cerebral infarction due to valvular heart disease or cardiac dysrhythmia, as well as for stroke-in-evolution. Various incidences of hemorrhagic complications have been cited in patients given anticoagulants after stroke or transient cerebral ischemia. Conversion of ischemic to hemorrhagic infarction has been shown to occur ...

What is probably the first case of presumably nosocomial Legionnaires' Disease (LD) in Israel is described in a 56-yr-old man hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction. The patient developed bilateral pneumonia and hemorrhagic pleural effusion. The diagnosis of LD was confirmed by serological examinations that showed a significant increase and decrease ...
Bjerre P - - 1982
In 44 consecutive patients with sellar volume larger than 1100 mm3, computer tomography showed that 20 had an empty or partly empty sella. None had radiological evidence of a suprasellar tumor. 10 of the 20 patients had experienced episodes with acute neurological symptoms presumably reflecting a pituitary apoplexy. It is ...
Friedman M J - - 1982
Eleven of forty-nine patients with acute myocardial infarction had left ventricular thrombus identified by two-dimensional echocardiography. The patients with thrombi had a greater incidence of transmural infarction, high-grade ventricular ectopy on ambulatory monitoring and lower radionuclide ejection fractions than the patients without thrombi. Most of the patients were receiving full-dose ...
Slone D E - - 1982
Rectal tears were detected in three horses treated for colic. Based on historical, clinical, and postmortem findings, the tears could not be attributed to the attending veterinarian and were therefore not iatrogenic (physician induced). One tear was attributable to an infarction that presumably resulted from thromboembolism; 1 tear occurred without ...
De Wolf F - - 1982
Evidence exists of an association between the presence of a "lupus" anticoagulant in plasma, recurrent fetal loss, and repeated thromboembolic accidents, also in the absence of systemic lupus erythematosus. Presented is an example of this association, with morphologic and biologic studies to elucidate its pathogenesis. In the case reported, the ...
Derias N W - - 1982
Transversely sectioned human heart slices, obtained at necropsy from normal subjects and from cases of recent myocardial infarction, were stained with the nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT) dehydrogenase macroreaction for the gross identification of recent myocardial infarction. The addition of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) to the incubating medium greatly improved the sensitivity ...
Furlan A J - - 1982
Among 54 consecutive patients with acute nonseptic embolic brain infarction, there was CT evidence of hemorrhagic infarction in 1 patient (2%). None had clinical or CT evidence of massive brain hemorrhage even when anticoagulation therapy was used immediately. Seven patients (13%) had recurrent brain emboli, all within 7 days of ...
Koller R L - - 1982
A retrospective review of the hospital course of 44 patients with embolic cerebral infarction was carried out. Eleven patients (25%) suffered recurrent embolic infarction. Three of the recurrences were fatal. Two patients suffered a recurrence within 48 hours of the initial event, and an additional patient suffered a recurrence 6 ...
