In nine subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pulsus paradoxus, M-mode echocardiograms showed inspiratory augmentation of right ventricular dimensions and inspiratory decrease of left ventricular diastolic dimensions. In five subjects in whom the echocardiographic transistor was in the subxiphoid position, mean right ventricular(More)
In the Lebensmittelinstitut Braunschweig 89 samples of sultanas were analysed for Ochratoxin A in 2003. The samples were slurried with water to get a homogeneous test-material. After the extraction with acetonitrile the sample-filtrates were cleaned-up by immuno affinity columns. The measurement was performed by HPLC with fluorescence-detection. As the(More)
A double-blind placebo-controlled study to determine the acute hemodynamic and cardiac mechanical effects of the quinolinone derivative OPC-18790 was performed in 12 patients with New York Heart Association class III or IV congestive heart failure. Simultaneous echocardiographic, Doppler, and invasive hemodynamic studies were performed before and after a(More)
A 72 year old woman was thought to have a paradoxically split second heart sound. Echocardiography with simultaneous phonocardiography revealed a late systolic click resulting from isolated tricuspid valve prolapse. Respiratory variation of the click in relation to the second heart sound resulted in an auscultatory phenomenon simulating paradoxical(More)
