Its clinical presentation is variable; 64% of children with wandering spleen have splenic torsion as a complication. To provide up-to-date information on the diagnosis, clinical management and diagnostic imaging approaches for wandering(More)
INTRODUCTION The management of congenital splenic cysts continues to evolve. In the past the standard treatment was splenectomy, but increased knowledge about the spleen's immunologic function has led most pediatric surgeons to preserve splenic tissue. A great number of studies using sclerosing substances have been published, but to date reports in children(More)
We are reporting 3 cases of pediatric endobronchial tumors presented with recurrent pneumonia. The median age of patients, at time of presentation, was 10.6 years. All patients presented with recurrent pneumonia with a mean time to occurrence, after onset of symptoms, of 14 mo. Bronchoscopy was early performed as part of diagnostic work-up and it revealed(More)
The electrophysiological changes induced by sequential infusion of histamine (H) (0.4 and 1.0 mcg/kg/min for 10 min each) were investigated by conventional ECG and High Resolution ECG (H.R.ECG). The latter permits external non-invasive recording of the potentials generated in the cardiac conduction system. H was infused i.v. in 5 normal volunteers with a(More)
Myocardial hypertrophy in Sprague-Dawley adult rats exposed to hypobaric hypoxia (0.40 atmosphere of air/18 h daily for 7 days) in a hypobaric chamber was investigated. Changes in the myocardial mass were evaluated on the basis of the dry heart weight and expressed as mg/100 g of total body weight (mean +/- SEM). Data are presented indicating that: chronic(More)
