Two fundus cameras were used in the development of a setup for bilateral fluorescein angiography. The indications for this method are listed and examples of simultaneous fluoroangiograms are given. This technique allows the simultaneous study of hemodynamics in the carotid artery, the study of intraocular and anterior eye segment circulatory disturbances,(More)
BACKGROUND Concern has been expressed that a reduction of partial oxygen pressure during flight in commercial aircraft may induce dangerous hypoxemia in patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease.

Three consecutive patients (median age 5 years; median weight 15 kg) with double chambered right ventricle (DCRV) were studied by multiplane transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE), using a specially designed paediatric probe. Using a 30 degrees angulation from the longitudinal plane, the body and outflow tract of the right ventricle could be imaged with(More)
