Seven men, six suffering from widespread bone metastases of prostatic origin and one with urinary bladder carcinoma, demonstrated minimal or no discernible radioactivity in the kidneys and urinary bladder at the time of bone scanning using 99mTc-stannous polyphosphate. The mechanism behind this scan finding is thought to be rapid and enhanced uptake of the(More)
BACKGROUND Several modalities to diagnose diastolic dysfunction by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) exist. We compared the ratio of early mitral filling velocity (E) to early diastolic velocity by tissue Doppler imaging at the medial (E/E'm) and the lateral (E/E'l) mitral annulus and developed a model to diagnose elevated left ventricular end-diastolic(More)
Several techniques exist for surgical reimplantation of the coronary arteries to a composite aortic graft for repair of the ascending aorta. The Cabrol graft is an attachment of a Dacron tube between the coronary arteries and the composite aortic graft in aortic root replacement. Very late presentation of myocardial ischemia related to the Cabrol conduit(More)
UNLABELLED Morbidity and mortality increase when diastolic dysfunction accompanies coronary artery disease (CAD). An elevated stress (201)Tl lung-to-heart ratio (LHR) is a traditional marker of elevated left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP), which adds prognostic value in CAD. Since the introduction of (99m)Tc-labeled agents, this valuable marker(More)
Chest pain continues to be one of the leading emergency department presentations. Acute coronary syndrome is the most dreaded chest pain scenario, as "time is myocardium" in this situation. Numerous benign and less life-threatening diseases like early repolarization, acute pericarditis, and vasospastic angina can present with a similar clinical picture.(More)
