Tricyclic antidepressant drugs are known to cause often electrocardiographic abnormalities and to induce sometimes cardiac rhythm disturbances. We report a case of a patient on antidepressant therapy (Desipramine Hydrochloride, 50 mg/die, and Dothiepin Hydrochloride, 150 mg/die), without any underlaying heart disease, admitted to our Coronary Care Unit for(More)
Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to diet only in patients with non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis is characterized by high post-prandial hyperglycemia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 24 weeks of treatment with 300 mg acarbose per day in 76 consecutive outpatients affected by type 2 diabetes and(More)
sometimes difficult to be met in practice, are required Introduction for the system to be fully managed; and good system identification is far from being attained. Haemodialysis (HD) is a specific treatment for The aims of the present study were to forecast the uraemia, consisting of multiple doses administered urea concentration profile and TAC urea over(More)
The performance of the right heart during respiratory activity has mostly been studied in terms of changes in flow and pressure in pulmonary circulation. The aim of this study was to identify which moments of the respiratory cycle exert the greatest influence on right ventricular dynamics. Thus, the behaviour of the right ventricular systolic time intervals(More)
