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)
Epicardial ECG signs have been studied in 26 anesthetized and thoracotomized dogs in an attempt to follow the progress of tissue damage during regional myocardial ischemia. Epicardial ECG's were recorded before and during 15 min, 1 and 5 h of severe left anterior descending coronary artery narrowing. Epicardial ST segment elevation followed a complicated(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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
