One hundred forty-three subjects (107 with coronary artery disease [CAD], 23 without CAD [evaluated by coronary angiography] and 13 athletes) were selected for this study. All subjects underwent exercise testing to evaluate sensitivity, specificity and predictive value of Q wave, QX/QT ratio, QTc interval and ST depression. The Q-wave analysis revealed less(More)
In diabetic patients, the pathophysiologic mechanisms of exercise-induced left ventricular (LV) dysfunction remain controversial. In this study, the role of myocardial contractility recruitment in determining an abnormal LV response to isometric or dynamic exercise has been investigated in 14 diabetic patients with autonomic dysfunction. Ischemic heart(More)
17 patients with myotonic dystrophy have been studied. The skeletal muscle disease has been assessed by history, physical examination, electro-myography and muscle biopsy. Cardiac evaluation has been obtained by history, physical examination, chest X-ray, ecg at rest and after exercise, vectorcardiography and echocardiography. Only two patients presented(More)
BACKGROUND The possible role exerted by modulation of sympathetic outflow in the clinical effects of beta-blockade in chronic heart failure was tested during short- and long-term treatment. METHODS AND RESULTS Oral metoprolol (30-150 mg/day) was added to conventional therapy in 14 patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, left ventricular ejection(More)
One-hundred and eighty-nine patients who underwent cardiac catheterization for suspected ischemic heart disease were assigned to four different groups depending on the number of diseased vessels (0, 1, 2, 3), the dominant artery and the presence of left main coronary stenosis. Among the 45 parameters obtained from history, physical examination, E.C.G., and(More)
Four different regioselective double capping reactions were applied either to α- or β-cyclodextrin (CD) scaffolds. The first, which relied on the use of a rigid, bulky dialkylating reagent containing two trityl-like subunits, gave access to an A,B,D,E-tetrafunctionalised β-CD regioisomer in large scale reactions. Two further capping reactions, involving the(More)
A 3-year-old female alpaca was referred to the hospital because of tenesmus. Clinical examination revealed a habitual vaginal prolapse with tenesmus during urination and defecation. On vaginoscopic examination a persistent hymen was detected. Ultrasonography of the caudal abdomen showed an echogenic fluid-filled uterus. A diagnostic laparotomy led to(More)
The parameters of a maximal exercise stress test, without therapy, 30 to 186 days after myocardial infarction were related to cardiac death, recurrent nonfatal infarction, coronary artery by-pass surgery, development of angina pectoris and ST segment depression during subsequent stress test in 209 patients. During a follow-up period of 9.5 to 119 months(More)
Long-term treatment with beta-adrenergic blocking drugs has been shown to induce clinical amelioration in patients with chronic heart failure. However, the efficacy of these agents has not been consistent, and the mechanisms of their beneficial effects remain to be established. The present study evaluated the influence of oral metoprolol on symptoms and(More)
