PURPOSE To determine the accuracy of hysteroscopy in diagnosing endometrial cancer, hyperplasia, polyps and submucous myomas. METHODS Relevant articles were retrieved from the MEDLINE and the Cochrane Library (1986-2011). Studies were selected blindly. Results for diagnostic accuracy were extracted to form separate 2 × 2 tables (for endometrial cancer,(More)
BACKGROUND Experimental data suggest that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) such as MMP-3 have a central role in the remodeling period after a myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of this study was to use an experimental small-animal model to investigate the fluctuation in MMP-3 levels occurring in vivo after an acute MI. METHODS We studied 13 New Zealand(More)
Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death in women. Significant gender differences have been reported among patients with symptomatic carotid artery disease. The aim of this study is to examine if the female sex is a predisposing factor for carotid stenosis in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) patients. We studied 965 CABG patients,(More)
Phasic electromyographic (EMG) activity during sleep is characterized by brief muscle twitches (duration 100-500ms, amplitude four times background activity). High rates of such activity may have clinical relevance. This paper presents wavelet (WT) analyses to detect phasic EMG, examining both Symlet and Daubechies approaches. Feature extraction included 1s(More)
