CMV disease (CMVD) is a recognized problem of the early post-transplant period (PTP) in renal transplant recipients. Information on CMVD in the late (> or = 2 years) PTP is scarce. We have observed 5 cases of CMVD during late (3-8 years) PTP during the last 15 years. Three of these patients died from CMVD. One of the patients with late-onset CMVD recovered(More)
BACKGROUND Studies comparing the accuracy of clinical diagnosis in unselected patients who died in hospital in different medical eras have shown no decline of errors in the main diagnosis. We assessed changes in diagnostic accuracy over 20 years. METHODS We analysed retrospectively diagnostic errors, with use of necropsy as the gold standard for(More)
Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA) is a rare form of physical allergy. Although histamine release is a feature of EIA, and histamine provocation of coronary spasm has been described, serious cardiac arrhythmias in EIA have not been reported. Exercise-induced anaphylaxis was diagnosed in a survivor of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest due to ventricular(More)
PURPOSE Our goal was to assess the MR appearance and histologic correlation of primary pulmonary artery angiosarcoma. METHOD Four patients with tumorous masses in the pulmonary arteries were evaluated by dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI using T1- and T2-weighted SE images, GE images, as well as coronal 3D MRA in breath-hold technique. The percentage of tumor(More)

Pulmonary edema is a frequent complication in patients undergoing intravenous fluid therapy. Thorough and repeated clinical workup of the patients, along with few relevant laboratory data, are in most cases sufficient to analyze the factors which influence the Starling forces. This approach allows early detection of fluid overload and the development of(More)
This article aims to analyze the behavior of a portfolio selected through Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) associated with fuzzy logic and optimized using the Sharpe approach. As a basis for comparison, two other portfolios were used, one obtained through only the Sharpe approach. In this research study, a fuzzy DEA model was used to evaluate efficiency(More)
Tetrabamate (Atrium), a composite preparation of phenobarbital, difebarbamate and febarbamate, is widely used to reduce ethanol withdrawal symptoms such as tremor, agitation and anxiety. Generally this drug is well tolerated and a few cases of reversible hepatitis as well as clinically mild symptoms of asthenia have been described. We report on a(More)
