Calciphylaxis: A Rare Association with Alcoholic Cirrhosis. Are Deficiencies in Protein C and S the Cause?
Calciphylaxis is a rare condition of induced systemic hypersensitivity in which tissues respond to appropriate challenging agents with a sudden local calcification. It is characterized by acuteExpand

Acute pulmonary edema associated with direct current cardioversion in a structurally normal heart.
The transthoracic application of synchronized direct current cardioversion (DCC) is widely used to terminate atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and other supraventricular tachyarrhythmia. DCC is aExpand

Spontaneous negative pressure changes: an unusual cause of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema.
The principal physiologic mechanism underlying the formation of negative pressure pulmonary edema (NPPE) is thought to be the creation of excessive negative intrathoracic force from inspirationExpand
