The Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) is an important factor in the management and prognosis of a patient with neurosurgical pathology. We have found that there is often a disparity between the quoted and actual GCS of patients referred to this unit. We performed a prospective observational study to determine the proportion of patients referred with a correct GCS.(More)

Although the radiographic findings were suggestive of RSL in six of seven patients, diagnostic excisional biopsy was recommended for all. One RSL had associated(More)
Although atrioesophageal fistula (AEF) formation is a well known, albeit rare, catastrophic complication of atrial fibrillation radiofrequency ablation procedures, there are less data regarding this complication using the cryoballoon technique. We report on 3 cases of AEF as a complication of cryoballoon pulmonary vein isolation at 3 different institutions(More)
The Brugada syndrome is a well-known genetic disease comprising a distinct electrocardiographic pattern with a high risk for cardiac arrest. The Brugada electrocardiographic pattern has, however, been observed in other clinical conditions. We describe a case of hyperkalemia presenting a Brugada type I pattern in the absence of typical electrocardiographic(More)
Double aortic arch (DAA) is a common vascular ring. It may occur in isolation or coexist with various types of congenital heart disease. The anomaly usually presents in early infancy. This reports a 23yr old male presenting with dysphagia, who was found to have a double aortic arch and tetralogy of Fallot. Both lesions were successfully corrected surgically.
