BACKGROUND Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) remains a major public health problem worldwide. Although early diagnosis by echocardiography may potentially play a key role in developing active surveillance, systematic evaluation of simple approaches in resource poor settings are needed. METHODS AND RESULTS We prospectively compared focused cardiac ultrasound(More)
Cytogenetic studies in infertile men showed that chromosomal anomalies were more frequent in these patients than in general population. Sex chromosome anomalies, specially 47, XYY karyotype, are predominant by their frequency at the severity of testicular impair. Nevertheless, balanced autosomal rearrangements can also induce spermatogenic failure; they(More)
CONTEXT AND AIMS The advent of systematic screening for rheumatic heart disease (RHD) by echocardiography in endemic regions has led to a new entity: borderline RHD. The pathogenicity and natural history of borderline RHD needs to be addressed. The aim of this study was to assess the outcomes of children detected by echocardiography as having borderline(More)
as well as longer-term monitoring for complications related to radiotherapy. Our study was limited, as we studied only the most common forms of cardiotoxicity (related to anthracyclines, trastuzumab, and radiotherapy). The wide variation in practice among cancer centers may reflect a lack of consensus on the optimal strategy to detect cardiac toxicity.(More)
INTRODUCTION Multidetector computed tomography coronarography is a promising tool, offering a non-invasive anatomic evaluation of coronary arteries. The great majority of studies conducted upon it are single-center studies, and have reported results based upon a highly selected patient population. Our aim was to determine its diagnostic accuracy among an(More)
