OBJECTIVE To determine the changes in intestinal permeability in liver cirrhosis and to investigate whether intestinal permeability relates to the stage and aetiology of cirrhosis or existence of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). DESIGN A prospective study of intestinal permeability in patients with cirrhosis. SETTING Gastroenterology and Nuclear(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate the role of esmolol-induced tight sympathetic control in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). BACKGROUND Elevated sympathetic drive has a detrimental effect on patients with acute STEMI. The effect of beta-blocker-induced heart rate mediated sympathetic control on myocardial damage is(More)
In this study, we investigated prospectively the diagnostic role of 99Tcm-MIBI for staging and for predicting the therapeutic response of stage IV neuroblastoma compared with 131I-MIBG imaging and 99Tcm-MDP bone scintigraphy. Nine patients (4 girls and 5 boys aged 1-7 years) with suspected or proven stage IV neuroblastoma were studied with 99Tcm-MIBI at(More)
A catalytic system consisting of tungsten carbene generated from WCl(6) and an atomic carbon is investigated theoretically for the metathesis of 1-octene at B3LYP/extended LANL2DZ level of DFT. The ground-state geometries and charge distributions of the structures belonging to the reaction mechanism are located. Energetics for the complete set of reactions,(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of inhaled steroid therapy on the distribution of inhaled Tc-99m DTPA in asthmatic children. Twenty-one asthmatic children and 15 healthy controls were entered in this study. The distribution of radioaerosols was scored by using a modified standardized score system over both lungs and expressed as homogeneity(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare conventional versus steerable catheter guided coronary sinus (CS) cannulation in patients with advanced heart failure undergoing cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). BACKGROUND Steerable catheter guided coronary sinus cannulation could reduce fluoroscopy time and contrast medium use during CRT(More)
Bone scintigraphy has been shown to be sensitive in determining bone involvement in patients with malignancy, but it does not allow the assessment of bone marrow lesions in early disease. The aim of this study was to detect bone marrow invasion using 99Tcm-labelled monoclonal antigranulocyte antibody (AgMoAb) in patients with prostate carcinoma. We studied(More)
A 12-year-old girl presented with a swollen right eye with three days of pain and a diffused swollen frontal region and head lasting for one day. On the computed tomography with contrast, diffused collection was detected in the subgaleal regions and subperiosteal of the right orbita. It was observed that she had bilateral maxillary, ethmoidal, and frontal(More)
