PURPOSE The encouraging initial results of gastrocystoplasty led us to perform it for failed bladder exstrophy closure. We assess the functional outcome of the augmented bladder and evaluate complications related directly to use of the stomach in this specific group of children. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed gastrocystoplasty in 22 children an(More)
A 53-year-old man with a prior history of myocardial infarcts and small cell lung cancer presented with lower limb ischemia. Laboratory tests revealed acute consumption coagulopathy and echocardiography showed massive intracavitary thrombi in the right atrium and both ventricles. Despite the administration of heparin, the patient died 3 weeks later of(More)
The effect of propofol and thiopentone on cerebral (CBF), myocardial (MBF), muscular, and arterial hepatic blood flow was assessed with radiolabelled microspheres in 12 chronically instrumented dogs, six given propofol and six thiopentone. Tissue blood flows were measured in the awake animal, after 30 min of normoxic anaesthesia (room air), and after 30 min(More)
In long-term, 1-year follow-up, uptitration of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor and nitrate therapy over established doses can further improve severe functional mitral regurgitation in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy due to a reversal of heart failure-related left ventricular remodeling. With marked left ventricular enlargement, >6.8 cm(More)
INTRODUCTION Testicular tumors are usually managed by radical orchiectomy because of the high incidence of malignant lesions. Epidermoid cyst of the testis is a rare benign tumor, and its differential diagnosis from malignant testicular tumors is difficult. MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical records of seven patients who attended our hospital with(More)
BACKGROUND N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) appears to be a strong risk marker of mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome. However, little information is available on NT-proBNP as a predictor of long-term serious cardiovascular events beyond that of left ventricular ejection fraction in patients with acute myocardial(More)
BACKGROUND High concentration mesalazine formulations are more convenient than conventional low concentration formulations for the treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC). AIM To compare the efficacy and safety of 1600 mg and 400 mg tablet mesalazine formulations. METHODS Patients with mild-to-moderate active UC (Mayo Clinic Score >5; N=817) were(More)
Decreased plasma concentrations of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) and of its N-terminal prohormones have been demonstrated in severely hypothyroid patients compared with control subjects, and shown to normalize with thyroxine (T4) replacement therapy. Whether this depends on thyroid hormone deficiency exclusively or is secondary to hemodynamic changes that(More)
