Catheter ablation of para-Hisian premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) still represents a challenge and is a compromise between success and inadvertent AV block. We describe a possible strategy to address PVCs from this location with high-amplitude His-bundle potentials at the site of earliest activation.
W e have reviewed 81 patients with fractures of the odontoid process treated between May 1983 and July 1997, by anterior screw fixation. There were 29 patients with Anderson and D'Alonzo type-II fractures and 52 with type III. Roy-Camille's classification identified the direction and instability of the fracture. Operative fixation was carried out on 48 men… (More)
The variations of fibrinogen, alpha-antitrypsin, haptoglobin and C-reactive protein (CRP) were compared in sera from patients with a cranial trauma. All these protein concentrations were increased with CRP variation being the most marked and the most rapid. The prognostic and diagnostic value of CRP determination was studied in a series of 88 patients… (More)
