We aimed to provide data on the diagnosis of tuberculous meningitis (TBM) in this largest case series ever reported. The Haydarpasa-1 study involved patients with microbiologically confirmed TBM in Albania, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, France, Hungary, Iraq, Italy, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Syria and Turkey between 2000 and 2012. A positive culture,(More)
Heart rate (HR) slowing action and the possible negative inotropic effect of pindolol (P) (daily dose +/- standard error of the means (SEM): 14.7 +/- 1.6 mg) were studied in 12 patients with heart failure and with rapid atrial fibrillation (AF) resistant to effective beta-methyl dioxin (BMD) doses (mean plasma digoxin concentration +/- SEM: 2.05 +/- 0.17(More)
The treatment of intractable heart failure (New York Heart Association--NYHA IV) with inotropic support is a well established adjunct in the control of clinical status of end-stage heart failure patients but usually needs many admissions and a long period of hospitalization. In this study we report on the follow-up findings of 64 patients for 18 months who(More)
A case of recurrent ventricular paroxysmal tachycardia in a young man without obvious heart disease is described. Posttachycardiac T-wave inversion followed the arrhythmic episodes. Programmed stimulation of the heart in association with intracardiac recordings showed evidence in favor of reentry within the bundle branches and its divisions during(More)
In 12 patients with manifest hypothyroidism right atrial monophasic action potentials showed a significant prolongation in comparison with data from normal or euthyroid patients. Atrial effective refractory periods were also significantly prolonged. After thyroid treatment the monophasic action potential duration and the effective refractory period of the(More)
The paper presents a report on the clinical and electrographic spectrum of nine patients with the sick sinus syndrome with severe symptoms of clinical disturbances and serious disorders of impulse formation and conduction. Seven patients had syncope associated with sinus bradycardia, sinoatrial block or atrial fibrillation with slow ventricular rate.(More)
Monophasic action potentials recorded in two patients with atrial flutter and one patient with atrial fibrillation showed a nonuniform depolarization of the right atrial wall. In each of the two patients with atrial flutter, there was a site where two separate action potential deflections were recorded for each flutter wave. It was supposed that this was(More)
