We studied clinically relevant haemorrhagic and thromboembolic events in 213 patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) during 818 patient-years of anticoagulant (AC) treatment. The incidence of complicating events per 100 patient-years of treatment in three groups of patients, those with mitral valve disease (MVD; n = 34), without MVD (n = ...

Patients' self-concept and personality have been shown to deteriorate with an increase in prosthodontic problems. This study determined whether patients with prosthodontic problems varying in severity showed different levels of adjustment. Four groups of patients, including a control group, were studied. The three experimental groups differed from the control group ...

A study is described in which the normal toes of 50 patients with unilateral ingrowing toenails were compared with those of 50 healthy subjects matched for age and sex. Twenty-one potential risk factors were compared between the groups. All measurements on patients were derived from unaffected toes in order to ...

Although conversion of atrial fibrillation (AF) to sinus rhythm can usually be accomplished by electrical or drug therapy, effective atrial systole may not be restored. To investigate the return of atrial transport function and its relation to the duration of the arrhythmia, Doppler echocardiography was performed after conversion in 18 ...

Both verapamil and diltiazem are used to control ventricular response during atrial fibrillation (AF). Their effect on the maintenance of AF is not known. The effects of the intravenous and oral administration of verapamil and diltiazem were investigated in 35 patients, 18 with (group I) and 17 without (group II) ...

Two patients with severe amnesia following rupture of anterior communicating artery aneurysms were able to learn a complex algorithm for mentally squaring two-digit numbers. Although both patients learned the algorithm at a similar rate, one patient's improvement was accounted for by savings in the steps of the algorithm. The other ...
Brestel E P - - 1988
In this study, four patients presented with chronic urticaria that required glucocorticosteroid therapy for control. In the first patient, the urticaria began during pregnancy and persisted after delivery with symptoms flaring premenstrually thereafter. Danazol was selected in an attempt to suppress progesterone levels, theoretically by inhibiting ovulation. The patient's urticaria ...

Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) is well recognized in its ability to colonize the respiratory tract in cystic fibrosis (CF). Furthermore, a number of the immune responses of the patient with CF to this organism have been characterized, and the immune inflammatory response to Af may result in allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). ...

One hundred consecutive patients admitted in 1980-82 for direct current conversion of chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) were followed. The first attempt to convert was made without the institution of class I antiarrhythmics. If AF relapsed, patients were selected for further conversions, in connection with which quinidine or disopyramide treatment was ...

The evolution of 53 eating disorder patients during inpatient group treatment has been studied by comparing the perception of changes by the patients themselves, the group members, and the therapeutic team. Remarkable differences were found between the judgments of these three groups. Patients tend to deny problems or to evaluate ...

Major changes were recently implemented in the diagnosis related groups (DRGs) used for payment under Medicare's prospective payment system (PPS). As of October 1987, patient age was no longer used in combination with the presence of a complication or comorbidity (CC) to define DRGs. We present the results of one ...
Petersen P - - 1987
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with an increased risk of stroke. In AF patients with acute stroke, cerebral computed tomography (CT) often reveals old asymptomatic infarcts. To investigate the frequency of such lesions, 29 AF patients and 29 controls in sinus rhythm without history of cerebrovascular disease were CT scanned. ...
Kanazawa K - - 1987
Seventy-six patients with invasive hydatidiform mole (HM) were reviewed as to clinical course, particularly treatment and outcome, in relation to their age. The results were as follows: (i) metastatic cases showed approximately a twofold increase in patients over 40 compared with younger patients, (ii) more courses of chemotherapy were required ...
Brodsky M A - - 1987
Previous reports suggest that the finding of left atrial (LA) dilatation (greater than 45 mm) by echocardiography identifies patients not likely to maintain sinus rhythm after conversion of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, these studies antedate the availability of amiodarone, an antiarrhythmic agent that reportedly is effective in patients with AF ...

Electrophysiologic testing is warranted in patients with the Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome presenting with rapid atrial fibrillation (AF) or ventricular fibrillation. Indications are less clear in patients presenting only with atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (ART). A knowledge of propensity of this latter group to show a rapid ventricular response in the event ...

The purpose of the present investigation was to provide preliminary information concerning the prevalence of stuttering among patients manifesting structural abnormalities of the velopharyngeal complex. Certain theoretical considerations suggested, a priori, that the prevalence of stuttering might be higher among these patients, although unsubstantiated clinical impressions indicated that the opposite ...

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) complicates asthma and results in immunologic lung destruction. Respiratory failure or fatalities from end-stage fibrotic lung disease have occurred in patients in the third and fourth decades of life. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis may be confirmed in patients with varying severity of asthma from minimal to corticosteroid-dependent ...

Sudden death in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) is related to a very fast ventricular response to spontaneous atrial fibrillation (AF) conducted via accessory pathway (AP). The effect of oral amiodarone was studied in 12 patients with WPW syndrome and life-threatening rapid ventricular response via an AP during spontaneous AF. The effective ...

On retrospective review of records of 150 patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), 31% experienced a stroke or peripheral embolism. The AF was not associated with cardiac valvular disease in 80% of the 150 patients. Most of the cerebral infarcts were large, disabling, and unheralded by transient ischemic attack. The thromboembolism ...

We examined 106 VCGs of cancer patients receiving Adriamycin (ADM) to investigate the nature and meaning of bites. It is known that ADM causes patchy areas of myocardial degeneration and necrosis, the appearance of which is dose dependent. Thirty-eight cancer patients not yet receiving ADM were examined to provide controls. ...
