The study presents case of a 62-year-old female patient with symptoms of the heart failure NYHA class III intensifying for the last 2 months. In the physical examination at admission no significant abnormalities were found. In the two- and three-dimensional echocardiography normal thickness and contractility of the left ventricle wall were found, as well as(More)
BACKGROUND We assessed the impact of morbid obesity on systolic and diastolic heart function in severely obese, but otherwise healthy subjects and age-matched controls. METHODS Overall, 27 obese patients: 19 female (F) and 8 male (M) mean age 37 ± 9, mean body mass index (BMI) 46 ± 6 and 27 control subjects: mean age 36 ± 10, mean BMI 23 ± 3 were examined(More)
A 49-year-old woman with a history of hyperten-sion and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus presented to an outside medical institution with the chief complaint of retrosternal chest pressure. The chest pain occurred at rest, radiated to both arms, was associated with shortness of breath, and was relieved with sublingual nitroglycerin. The presenting ECG(More)
Nest predation is one of the most important mortality factors of birds. Field observations showed that tits (Paridae) produce hissing calls and, usually, have lower breeding losses than nesting Ficedula flycatchers, which do not make such calls. We hypothesise that differences in fledgling success can be directly attributed to the vocal reaction of tits. We(More)
OBJECTIVE Parameters of left ventricular systolic function directly influence the management of patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Quantitative gated single-photon emission computed tomography (QGS; Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA) allows the computation of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) from myocardial(More)
