OBJECTIVE After exhaustion of all conventional arteriovenous (AV) access options, an alternative approach is an arterioarterial conduit. The purpose of this study was to examine the utility of an axillary-axillary (AA) interarterial (IA) access in this subset of patients. METHODS A retrospective review was performed of all patients who underwent placement(More)
BACKGROUND Asymptomatic subjects with diabetes mellitus have an impaired cardiac energetics status that may play a significant role in the development of heart failure. In the present study, we assessed the role of microvascular dysfunction in the development of impaired cardiac energetics in subjects with type 1 diabetes mellitus. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Percutaneous mitral valve repair (MVR) with the MitraClip® system in patients with mitral regurgitation (MR) is known to reduce symptoms and to improve cardiac morphology and function. MitraClip has been approved for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). To date, however, no systematic analysis exists on cardiac MRI in patients undergoing the MitraClip(More)

OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate a ventilation maneuver to facilitate percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair (PMVR) and its effects on heart geometry. BACKGROUND In patients with challenging anatomy, the application of PMVR is limited, potentially resulting in insufficient reduction of mitral regurgitation (MR) or clip detachment. Under(More)
Conventional catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias is associated with radiation risks for patients and laboratory personnel. Widespread use of zero-fluoroscopic catheter ablation in clinical routine is limited by safety concerns. This study investigated the feasibility of zero-fluoroscopy catheter ablation using a three-dimensional mapping system and(More)

Most of the estimated 20 million people who are blind with cataracts live in rural areas of developing countries, where expert surgical resources are scarce. We have studied the use of multiflex open-loop anterior-chamber intraocular lenses (ACIOL) in high-volume low-cost surgery. Between 1992 and 1995, a total of 2000 people attending Lahan Eye Hospital,(More)
The effect of one single oral or parenterally administered dose of 1 million IU vitamin A on the vitamin A depot in the liver and on blood plasma vitamin A concentrations was investigated in 3 individual feeding experiments with involvement of 18 and 24 calves or 24 fattening bulls. 50% of all animals in each of the 3 experiments received feed without any(More)
