Objectives:  Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) without clinically apparent extracardiac disease may escape detection due to the poor sensitivity of endomyocardial biopsy (EMB). We set out to analyse our experience of repeated and imaging-guided biopsies in clinically isolated CS. Methods:  We retrospectively reviewed the medical records, laboratory test results, imaging studies and ...

Type D personality has been associated with poor prognosis in cardiac patients. This study investigated the validity of the Type D construct in Iceland and its association with disease severity and health-related risk markers in cardiac patients. A sample of 1,452 cardiac patients completed the Type D scale (DS14), and ...

Following advances in overall management and improved outcomes, an increasing number of adolescents with cardiac disease are reaching adult age. Patients in general, including adolescents, seem to have a poor knowledge of their illness, which may further reflect in a less optimal quality of life. As a guide to their ...

To evaluate the clinical significance of subcategory and severity of chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) as defined by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) consensus criteria, we retrospectively studied 211 patients with hematologic neoplasms who survived beyond 100 days after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation. Endpoints included chronic GVHD-specific survival (cGSS), duration of ...

To evaluate safety and efficacy of donor lymphocyte infusions (DLI), derived from frozen aliquots of the original G-CSF-stimulated graft after allogeneic PBSCT from unrelated donors, data of 121 patients with hematological malignancies treated with DLIs were retrospectively analyzed. Indications for PBSCT were AML/myelodysplastic syndrome (n=63/8), ALL (n=17), lymphoma (n=13), multiple ...

Over the past three decades, significant advances in treatment have improved the mortality of children with cardiac disease. The effect of these advances on the prevalence of arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) is unknown. We describe AIS in children with cardiac disease in the modern era. The prospectively enrolled Intermountain Pediatric ...

OBJECTIVES: (i) Prevalence of stroke in neurologically symptomatic/asymptomatic patients with unilateral/bilateral carotid disease (including occlusion) undergoing cardiac surgery without prophylactic carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid stenting (CAS). (ii) Prevalence of stroke in asymptomatic patients with unilateral/bilateral carotid disease (excluding occlusion) who underwent isolated cardiac surgery. (iii) Prevalence of stroke in ...

PURPOSE:: To explain our preferred technique and evaluate the success of ocular surface transplantation using a combined living-related conjunctival limbal allograft (lr-CLAL) and keratolimbal allograft (KLAL) in patients with severe ocular surface failure and conjunctival deficiency. METHODS:: Retrospective study of all patients undergoing combined lr-CLAL/KLAL at the Cincinnati Eye Institute/University ...

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recently released guidelines for the investigation of chest pain of recent onset. There is no published data regarding their impact on out-patient cardiac services. This study was undertaken to assess the likelihood of coronary artery disease (CAD) in Rapid Access Chest ...

A 49-year-old male had open sigmoid colectomy with colorectal anastomosis for sigmoid diverticulitis. The patient was given patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) hydromorphone and subsequently developed bradycardia with prolonged sinus pauses up to 7.1 seconds. The pauses resolved shortly after the hydromorphone was discontinued. This is the first case report to our ...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the long-term value of high-dose dobutamine cardiac magnetic resonance (DCMR) for the prediction of cardiac events in a large cohort of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. BACKGROUND: High-dose DCMR has been shown to be a useful technique for ...

Annual cardiovascular mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is much higher than in the general population. The rate of sudden cardiac death increases as the stage of CKD increases and could be responsible for 60% of cardiac deaths in patients undergoing dialysis. In hemodialysis units treating patients with ...

Background. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with implantation of a metal stent is a common procedure performed in patients with symptomatic ischaemic heart disease. Intracoronary stents typically have a backbone of stainless steel, which contains nickel, chromium, and molybdenum, and it remains unclear whether individuals who are allergic to these metals ...

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of cardiac-associated mortality in dialysis patients. Risk factors unique to hemodialysis patients include abnormal electrolytes, large-volume ultrafiltration, and prior history of cardiac disease. Few randomized controlled trials of standard cardiac interventions have been completed in dialysis patients. Observational studies suggest that modification ...

Objectives. We studied long-term effects of therapy for childhood lymphoma on cardiac function. Design and patients. We prospectively evaluated 45 survivors of childhood lymphoma, using clinical parameters, electrocardiography and echocardiography. Further comparisons were made between lymphoma subgroups and between males and females. Results. Mean age at diagnosis was 9.1 years. ...

Upper airway cough syndrome (UACS), the most common cause of prolonged cough, is diagnosed based on clinical findings without specific diagnostic test. The concentration of nitric oxide in nasal cavity air (nNO) is influenced by allergic rhinitis and/or sinusitis, both of which are common causes of UACS. We measured nNO ...

Three pulse contour systems for monitoring cardiac output - LiDCO Plus™, PiCCO Plus™ and FloTrac™ - were compared in postcardiac surgery patients. None of the three methods demonstrated good trending ability according to concordance analysis. Pulse contour systems remain unreliable in the haemodynamically unstable patient.

AIM: Metformin is the most commonly prescribed oral agent used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is effective at reducing glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c) and decreasing microvascular and macrovascular disease. However, up to 25% of patients develop gastrointestinal side effects leading to cessation in 5-10% of users. Metformin XL ...

Out of 17 schizophrenic and 14 manic patients diagnosed according to ICD-10, 11 and 9 patients respectively developed acute dystonia following a single intravenous injection of 40mg haloperidol. The results are not statistically significant (p>0.05) suggesting that monies and schizophrenics are equally vulnerable to develop neuroleptic - induced acute dystonia.

The soft neurological signs (SNS) and minor physical anomalies (MPA) were studied in 107 adult schizophrenics. The sample consisted chronic (N=60) and acute (N=47) schizophrenic subtypes. The SNS were found more in chronic patients (p< .01). The most prevalent abnormalities in SNS were related to the sensory integration and motor ...
