The usage of Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) since 1980s is becoming more popular these days. The rate of both, endocarditis and constrictive pericarditis are low but it still needs attention. We are reporting a rare case of ICD endocarditis as a result of toe infection in a diabetic patient. This was followed by infectious pericarditis after device(More)
Solution-phase synthesized nanowires with high aspect ratios can be a challenge to assemble into desired structures. As synthesized, these nanostructures readily bend and entangle with each other to form larger aggregates. This manuscript reports a general procedure for directing the assembly of semiconducting and metallic nanowires into fibers that can(More)
An important aspect of synthesizing designer nanostructures is fine-tuning their size, composition, and surface area. These parameters often dictate the unique properties of nanoparticles relative to their bulk counterpart. This paper reports the synthesis of porous metal nanorods with well-controlled dimensions, porosity, and photonic properties. The(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated intrapericardial LAA aneurysm is a rare cardiac anomaly which manifests with angina, dyspnea on exertion (DOE), systemic embolization, arrhythmia, and congestive heart failure. CASE REPORT A 30-year-old female and a 46-year-old male were referred for evaluation of abnormal cardiac contour on chest radiograph and echocardiographic(More)
One of the serious complications followingcoronary artery bypass surgery is postoperative acute myocardial infarction commonly due to graft thrombosis, kinking, or spasm. Two recommended approaches for management of this event includeRescue percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and urgent open heart surgery. In the present case series, we described and(More)
