Left atrial and ventricular filling in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. An echocardiographic and Doppler study.
Abnormal left ventricular (LV) diastolic function has frequently been reported in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In the present work, diastolic function was studied by aExpand
Aggressive form of pleural epithelioid haemangioendothelioma: complete response after chemotherapy.
Epithelioid haemangioendotheliomas are rare tumours of endothelial origin. They can develop in any tissue but occur principally in the lung and liver. Their usual course is a slow progression, soExpand
Heat flow and structure of the lithosphere in the Eastern Canadian Shield
Twenty-two new determinations of heat flow and radiogenic heat production in the Superior and Grenville provinces of the Canadian Shield are presented. The new data and previously publishedExpand
The vertical distribution of radiogenic heat production in the Precambrian crust of Norway and Sweden: Geothermal implications
The present geology of southern Scandinavia offers the unique opportunity to sample deep and intermediate levels from the same crustal section for both heat flow and heat production. In the centralExpand
Haemoptysis after breath-hold diving.
Pulmonary oedema has been described in swimmers and self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (Scuba) divers. This study reports three cases of haemoptysis secondary to alveolar haemorrhage inExpand
Impact of comorbidities on COPD-specific health-related quality of life.
BACKGROUND Comorbidities are frequent in subjects with COPD, but their contribution to health-related quality of life (HRQoL) impairment is not clearly established. METHODS Cross-sectional analysisExpand
Function and bulk of respiratory and limb muscles in patients with cystic fibrosis.
Inspiratory muscle weakness due to lung hyperinflation and muscle wasting may occur in cystic fibrosis. We therefore measured diaphragm function and bulk in 18 stable patients with cystic fibrosisExpand
Abdominal muscle strength in patients with tetraplegia.
The abdominal muscles are completely paralyzed after traumatic transection of the cervical cord. To assess the residual pressure-generating capacity of these muscles, we first measured the changes inExpand
Impact of gender on COPD expression in a real-life cohort
Reports regarding gender-related differences in COPD expression have provided conflicting results. In the French Initiatives BPCO real-world cohort, which contained 688 patients (146 women) when dataExpand
Relationship between blood eosinophils, clinical characteristics, and mortality in patients with COPD
In patients with COPD, there is controversy regarding the association of blood eosinophil (Eos) levels with 1) exacerbation frequency and 2) the effect of inhaled corticosteroids for prevention ofExpand
