One hundred twenty-four patients with chronic renal failure underwent color Doppler ultrasonographic examination of both arms, including the cephalic vein, before arteriovenous fistula(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion is a complex set of events with severe pathologic consequences. Reperfusion initiates both the local and systemic damage in part through rapid oxygen generation. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a scavenger of free radical species, inhibits neutrophil accumulation, acts as a vasodilator and also improves microcirculation. In present(More)
Improved preservation of the harvested heart with attenuation of the reperfusion injury is important for successful outcomes of cardiac transplantations. The most commonly used cardioplegic solution, to prevent ischemic changes has been St Thomas' Hospital cardioplegic solution (STHCS). However, it is neither ideal nor sufficient to prevent myocardial(More)
Pseudocoarctation, also known as kinking or buckling of the aorta, is an uncommon anomaly. Its recognition is important, because it may be mistaken for true coarctation, aneurysm or mediastinal neoplasm. A case of pseudocoarctation associated with left cervical aorta is reported. The present case is unique in the demonstration of obvious tortuosity and kink(More)
