A control flow checking scheme capable of detecting control flow errors of programs resulting from software coding errors, hardware malfunctions, or memory mutilation during the execution of the program is presented. In this approach, the program is partitioned into loop-free intervals and a database containing the path information in each of the loop-free(More)
Conventional dual-head single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT systems capable of fast dynamic SPECT (DySPECT) imaging have a potential for flow quantitation. This study introduced a new method to quantify myocardial blood flow (MBF) and myocardial flow reserve (MFR) with DySPECT scan and evaluated the diagnostic performance of detecting(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) due to arthropod envenomization has rarely been reported. Herein, we report a 65-year-old woman with clinical manifestations mimicking AMI and left ventricular wall motion abnormality after honeybee sting. The patient eventually recovered from her illness with normal left ventricular wall motion on echocardiogram and T wave(More)
This paper describes a case of 51-year-old man with a vegetation on his patent foramen ovale presenting with a cryptogenic brain abscess. He received surgical evacuation and was successfully managed with septal occlusion. This is the first reported case of cryptogenic brain abscess caused by a vegetation on a patent foramen ovale directly documented with(More)
This paper describes a case of 65-year-old woman with primary chylopericardium. She received Tc-99m phytate lymphoscintigraphy after pericardial drainage and was managed with medium-chain triglycerides without surgical intervention. This was the first reported case of primary chylopericardium diagnosed with Tc-99m phytate lymphoscintigraphy.
BACKGROUND Clinical trials on contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) prevention with different approaches generated various results. In this study, we investigated whether intravenous aminophylline preceding percutaneous transluminal renal artery stenting (PTRS) might provide better renal protection. METHODS Patients with severe atherosclerotic renal artery(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of vascular intervention in percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the treatment of hepatic artery and hepatic vein stenosis after liver transplantation (LT), including thrombotic total occluded lesions. METHODS Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty after orthotopic liver transplantation was(More)
