We present our results of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) as an alternative treatment. METHODS Ninety-eight patients with symptomatic > 70% stenosis of the internal carotid artery were considered for PTA. Details of the procedure,(More)
A sensitive and specific radioimmunoassay for measuring urinary kinins was developed. Antibodies against bradykinin were induced in rabbits by injecting bradykinin coupled to bovine albumin. One of the antisera generated was used at a final dilution of 1:18,000 to obtain a 30% total binding of bradykinin-(8-tyrosine)-[125I]-triacetate. Synthetic bradykinin(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to assess the outcomes of severe retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in zone I or posterior zone II treated with intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) as monotherapy or combined treatment with laser photocoagulation. METHODS This is a retrospective study analyzing clinical records of the included patients. Patients were divided into(More)
1. To investigate the possible effects of potassium canrenoate (PC) on plasma renin activity (PRA) and on renal prostaglandins (PGS) and kinins under elevated sodium and/or potassium intakes, a single dose of PC was administered to four groups of Wistar male rats. 2. They were fed a normal diet (C), a diet supplemented with 4% of NaCl, (Na), with 1% of KCl:(More)
PULMONARY veins entering the right atrium or its tributaries constitute the entity of transposition of the pulmonary veins. The transposition may be complete, when all the veins enter the right heart, or incomplete, when only some of the pulmonary veins drain anomalously. We are reviewing our experiences with total and partial anomalies of pulmonary venous(More)
ZK 36 374 is a chemically stable prostacyclin analogue which has been demonstrated to be a potent vasodilator. The effects of the drug on blood pressure, plasma renin activity, diuresis and urinary excretion of prostaglandin E2 and sodium, were studied on the 1st and 7th days of treatment and a week after the end of the administration to rats submitted to(More)
Our aim was to assess the association between lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and erectile dysfunction by means of International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) and Sexual Health Inventory for Men (SHIM) questionnaire. A total of 69 eligible patients who were admitted to our outpatient clinic with lower urinary tract symptoms were included in the study. A(More)
