The aim of the study was to evaluate by Doppler tissue imaging (DTI) the combined effects of atrio-ventricular (AV) delay and heart rate (HR) changes on global and segmental right (RV) and left (LV) ventricular diastolic function in 15 patients with dual-chamber pacemakers paced in the DDD mode. RV and LV inflow velocities and regional systolic and(More)
We report the observation of 16 cosmic ray events with a mean energy of 1.5 × 10¹⁹ eV via radio pulses originating from the interaction of the cosmic ray air shower with the Antarctic geomagnetic field, a process known as geosynchrotron emission. We present measurements in the 300-900 MHz range, which are the first self-triggered, first ultrawide band,(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnostic assessment and treatment have been described in detail in symptomatic WPW syndrome, but little information exists about significance and prognosis of an incidentally found ventricular pre-excitation (VPE) in asymptomatic children. The aim of the study was to evaluate, retrospectively, the role of electrophysiological study (EPS) in the(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequently encountered arrhythmic complication associated with cardiac surgery. The aim of this paper was to identify the clinical predictors of AF occurrence following aortic valve replacement. METHODS Three hundred and two patients were included in this study and divided into two groups according to the(More)
We report initial results of the first flight of the Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA-1) 2006-2007 Long Duration Balloon flight, which searched for evidence of a diffuse flux of cosmic neutrinos above energies of E(nu) approximately 3 x 10(18) eV. ANITA-1 flew for 35 days looking for radio impulses due to the Askaryan effect in neutrino-induced(More)
We report on observations of coherent, impulsive radio Cherenkov radiation from electromagnetic showers in solid ice. This is the first observation of the Askaryan effect in ice. As part of the complete validation process for the ANITA experiment, we performed an experiment at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in June 2006 using a 7.5 metric ton ice(More)
A 6-year-old child, operated for a perimembranous ventricular septal defect, underwent an electrophysiologic study for the presence of first degree atrioventricular (AV) block and bifascicular block with episodes of type 1 and type 2 second degree AV block. Electrophysiologic study showed a considerable infra-His conduction delay (HV interval 170 ms) and(More)
