Renshaw M - - 1994
A link between density-dependent larval competition and adult size of the mosquito Aedes cantans was demonstrated in northern England. Ponds containing high larval densities produced smaller larvae which, in turn, resulted in smaller adults at emergence. In both 1989 and 1990, parous mosquitoes caught at human bait were larger than ...

Presynaptic as well as postsynaptic adrenergic regulation abnormalities are reported in symptomatic patients with mitral valve prolapse. This study was undertaken to evaluate presynaptic sympathetic supply by m-[123I]iodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy in 17 preselected patients with mitral valve prolapse and symptoms suggestive of hyperadrenergic dysautonomia as compared to normal scintigraphic findings. Mitral ...
Salati M - - 1992
From 1986 to 1992 102 mitral valve repairs were done for mitral regurgitation due to a degenerative disease. Forty-eight patients had an anterior prolapse or prolapse of both leaflets at initial presentation and underwent chordal transposition from the mural leaflet to the anterior leaflet. The corrective procedure was completed by ...
Kai H - - 1992
The incidence of and the Doppler color-flow echocardiographic characteristics of aortic valve prolapse with nonrheumatic aortic regurgitation were examined. Aortic valve prolapse was observed in 21 of 243 patients (15 men and 6 women) with aortic regurgitation as detected by Doppler color-flow echocardiography (rheumatic, 112; nonrheumatic, 131) in 1247 consecutive ...
Barlow J B - - 1992
Three decades after it was demonstrated that nonejection systolic clicks and late systolic murmurs have a mitral valve origin and that a specific syndrome is associated with the primary degenerative mitral lesion, numerous questions remain unanswered. A principal cause of confusion is the use of the term 'prolapse', which essentially ...

To assess the timing and duration of mitral regurgitation in mitral valve prolapse, 20 patients with a mid-systolic click or late systolic murmur, or both (Group 1) and 16 patients with a pansystolic murmur with late systolic accentuation (Group 2) were studied with phonocardiography and echocardiography including various Doppler techniques. ...
Gross C M - - 1989
There is general acceptance of a causal connection between mitral valve prolapse and systemic embolic events. The precise mechanism, however, remains controversial, with current hypotheses favoring the embolization of thrombotic deposits from the abnormal mitral valve. It might be surmised that echocardiography could easily document the presence of such thrombi, ...
Fig L M - - 1989
A prominent filling defect was depicted on a radionuclide ventriculogram in a patient with mitral regurgitation. This defect was later shown, by cardiac ultrasound, to be due to mitral valve prolapse into the left ventricle during diastole. This case illustrates that mitral valve prolapse should be added to the list ...
