Real time ultrasonography of the pelvic organs was performed on 114 normal premenarcheal girls aged between 2 years and 13 years 11 months. Values were obtained for total uterine length, anteroposterior diameters of the corpus and cervix, corpus/cervix ratio, and uterine and ovarian volumes and the resultant data were grouped according to age. It was(More)
Aim of this study is to confirm the validity of non-invasive evaluation with Doppler C.W. in the study of arterial diseases and in the identification of pre-clinical arterial lesions. We studied twenty-eight children suffering from diabetes mellitus, and dependent on insulin and a control group composed of twenty-eight healthy persons. All subjects were(More)

Outcome of surgical left ventricular (LV) lead placement is not well defined in patients with failed percutaneous cardiac resynchronization therapy. An extended experience with epicardial LV lead placement is here reported, describing the minimally invasive procedure performed at our institution using a thoracoscopic surgical approach.
AIMS Accurate selection of patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB) may help increasing response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). There is no agreement on LBBB definition. The aim of the study was to investigate the prevalence of 'true-LBBB' according to Strauss in patients undergoing CRT. METHODS AND RESULTS The study population included(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has proved to be effective in patients with heart failure and left bundle branch block (LBBB). Recently, new electrocardiography criteria have been proposed for the diagnosis of LBBB. These criteria are stricter than the current American Heart Association (AHA) criteria. We assessed the rate of(More)
Real-time ultrasonography of the pelvic organs was performed on 40 girls with PT, 31 with PA, 23 with PP, 39 with EP, 18 with isolated vaginal heeding (VB), 20 with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), 20 with hirsutism (H), 18.with obesity (0) and 133 age-matched normal girls (C). Uterine and ovarian volumes (UV and OV) were calculated and ovarian(More)
Capillary blood samples on filter paper were assayed by means of a RIA method (kit Nichols Institute USA) from 1096 newborns divided into fullterm,preterm and small for date infants.Somatomedin-C (SmC) mean value which did not differ in the 3 groups,was 0.15±0.09UI/ml. 110 newborns (10%) showed SmC disc values ≤0.075 UI/ml minimum value measurable by our(More)
The association between diabetes mellitus and coeliac disease has been described a number of times. By using tests for antireticulin antibodies, Maki et al. found a greater prevalence of the disease in diabetic subjects. In our opinion, this method is not wholly reliable, which led us to study the problem using the test for antigliadin antibodies (AGA) by(More)
