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)
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 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)
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)
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)
We present 4 patients aged 51, 19, 22 and 16 years respectively, with no overt heart disease. They complained of recurrent episodes of paroxysmal sustained tachycardia with QRS morphology of right bundle branch block and left fascicular hemiblock. The analysis of the electrocardiogram during the tachycardia and, in two cases, the electrophysiologic study(More)
