Unlabeled helper oligonucleotides assisting a bead-based sandwich hybridization assay were tested for the optimal placement of the capture and detection probes. The target used was a full-length in vitro synthesized mRNA molecule. Helper probes complementary to regions adjacent to the binding site of the 5' end attached capture probe were found much more(More)
AIMS Long-standing aortic stenosis (AS) causes various degrees of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, which may improve after valve replacement. The aim of this study was to assess the nature of LV subendocardial abnormalities in AS and their response to valve replacement (AVR). METHODS AND RESULTS We studied 41 consecutive symptomatic patients (age 64 +/-(More)
The perception of pain in three groups of patients with angina pectoris has been studied. All patients went through a bicycle ergometer test with an increase of 10 wat each minute. Heart rates and ratings of pain were collected towards the end of each work load. Reliable results of diagnostic interest were obtained. The rating procedure is discussed and a(More)
Lung function was evaluated in 68 patients 13 to 26 (median 19) years after repair of tetralogy of Fallot. Age at repair was 7 years (9 months to 42 years) and 51% had a palliative shunt. An outflow patch was inserted in 56%. Median vital capacity was 84% of predicted, forced expiratory volume in 1 second 83%, maximal voluntary ventilation at 40 breaths/min(More)
Exercise tests and cardiac catheterization were performed in 53 patients, 13 to 26 years after intracardiac repair of tetralogy of Fallot. At the time of repair, the median age was 7 years, and 60% of patients with cyanosis had had a previous palliative procedure. The right ventriculotomy was closed without a patch in 21 patients (40%), a patch restricted(More)
