INTRODUCTION Circulating microparticles (MPs) may trigger a hypercoagulable state, leading to thrombotic complications. Data on their association with venous thromboembolism (VTE) are few and inconsistent. MATERIALS AND METHODS To investigate whether or not high levels of MPs are associated with an increased risk of VTE, we carried out a case-control(More)
PURPOSE Differences in the ways male and female patients confront their illness after cardiac surgery may contribute to previously observed gender differences in the outcomes of cardiac rehabilitation. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to verify whether there are gender-related differences in illness behavior (IB) soon after cardiac surgery and(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical course of cerebral sinus-venous thrombosis (CSVT) is largely unknown because prospective studies with a long follow-up and with the goal to assess thrombosis recurrence rate and predisposing factors for recurrence are lacking. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred forty-five patients with a first CSVT were followed up for a median of 6(More)
High arterial CO2 pressure (P aCO2) measured in athletes during exercise suggests inadequate hyperventilation. End-tidal CO2 pressure (P ETCO2) is used to estimate P aCO2. However, P ETCO2 also depends on exercise intensity (CO2 production, $$ \dot V{\text{CO}}_2 $$ ) and ventilation efficiency (being P ETCO2 function of respiratory rate). We evaluated P(More)
