A patient with complete atrioventricular block was fitted with a temporary endocardial pacing wire via a right subclavian percutaneous approach. The result was initially satisfactory, but within a few days radiography for left-sided chest pain showed pneumopericardium. A permanent epicardial pacing system was therefore substituted and she remained well for(More)
This study investigates the use of propranolol and nifedipine in the treatment of angina pectoris. The clinical response and the effects on the precordial 16-lead electrocardiogram before and after exercise were studied in 52 patients with frequent angina pectoris. Relief of chest pain and abolition of exercise-induced ST-segment depression was achieved in(More)
Left ventricular volumes were estimated in 59 patients, who were investigated by single plane ventriculography and coronary arteriography. The relation of the left ventricular end-diastolic volumes to the QRS voltage of the 12-lead electrocardiograms and Frank vectorcardiograms was examined. It was found that the maximum spatial QRS voltage and the R wave(More)
To determine whether cigarette smoking interferes with the medical management of angina pectoris, 10 patients with angina pectoris who smoked at least 10 cigarettes a day were studied before, during, and after a standardised maximal exercise test. This was done at the end of four randomly allocated one-week treatment periods during which the patients took(More)
In order to determine the significance of exercise induced ST segment elevation in patients with previous myocardial infarction, we have studied 156 patients, 26 months (mean) after myocardial infarction. Each patient underwent 16 lead precordial electrocardiographic mapping before, during, and after exercise and in addition coronary arteriography was(More)
OBJECT Few studies have evaluated the prognostic significance of different types of T2-weighted MR imaging changes in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). The object of this study was to determine whether the type of increased signal intensity (ISI) was an independent predictor of outcome following central corpectomy in patients with CSM or(More)
The effect of propranolol on ST depression in the praecordial 16 lead electrocardiogram was observed in 52 patients before and after treatment, both at rest and after exercise. In a further 20 patients exercise tests repeated on separate days two months apart showed that the technique gave reproducible results. A variable relation between symptomatic relief(More)
Fifty patients who presented with angina pectoris were studied to examine the disturbances of regional myocardial perfusion during stress. Each patient underwent 16-point precordial mapping of the ECG during an exercise test, and coronary and left ventricular angiography. Regional myocardial perfusion was assessed using an atrial pacing test and a(More)
Serial 72-point precordial mapping of ECG has been recorded to describe the natural history of changes in the precordial areas of ST segment elevation and the development of Q waves in 51 patients with acute uncomplicated anterior myocardial infarction. Eight patients have been studied in the same way but received 25 mg/kg of methylprednisolone sodium(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebrospinal fluid diversion procedures are indicated in patients with hydrocephalus after tuberculous meningitis (TBM). We present 2 patients with hydrocephalus after TBM who were successfully treated with endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). METHODS Two patients had been diagnosed with hydrocephalus after TBM and had undergone(More)
