BACKGROUND Osteoporotic vertebral fractures (VFs) often go unrecognised in both healthy individuals and in pathological conditions. Few data exist on VFs in patients hospitalised in Internal Medicine Units (IMUs), who often suffer from multiple concomitant chronic disorders. AIM OF THE STUDY This multicentre cross-sectional study was aimed at assessing(More)
The ventricular rate during rapid atrial rhythms is related in Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome to antegrade effective refractory period of the accessory pathways. Among the many antiarrhythmic drugs available, amiodarone is most commonly used for its large therapeutic window and very long half-life. We report a case of cardiac pre-excitation syndrome(More)
We report the results of magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) infusion in 10 patients with different ventricular arrhythmias: 6 torsade de pointes (2 with total A-V block, 1 with acute myocardial infarction and 3 with lengthening of the Q-Tc due to antiarrhythmic and/or diuretic treatment), 1 bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (on chronic treatment with digoxin(More)
BACKGROUND Is it really vanished the need for echocardiography in the differential diagnosis of functional pediatric murmurs? METHODS To this aim 260 children (132 males, 128 females; age range 1-84 months) were examined with auscultatory cardiac murmur. All children underwent a clinical and instrumental evaluation (ECG and echocardiography) from two(More)
The authors report a case of hypoglycemia in a subject with NIDDM and CAD. The clinical syndrome, which was diagnosed as an induced form for a long time, was found to be spontaneous and caused by metastasised kidney neoplasm. This led to considerable problems of differentiated diagnosis owing to the concomitance of diabetes and vascular pathology. An(More)
