We examined the influence of ventricular tachycardia (VT) cycle length and antiarrhythmic drugs on the frequency of VT termination and acceleration by single and double extrastimuli and right ventricular burst pacing. In 57 patients, 89 episodes of sustained VT (32 control, 57 drug) were induced by programmed electrical stimulation. Overall, 60 of 89 (67%)(More)

Nickel is the most common metal to cause contact dermatitis in orthodontics. Nickel-containing metal alloys, such as nickel-titanium and stainless steel, are widely used in orthodontic appliances. Nickel-titanium alloys may have nickel content in excess of 50 per cent and can thus potentially release enough nickel in the oral environment to elicit(More)
The syndrome of enhanced atrioventricular nodal (AVN) conduction has been defined arbitrarily by: AH interval during normal sinus rhythm (AH-NSR) less than or equal to 60 msec; shortest right atrial pacing cycle length (PCL) maintaining 1:1 AVN conduction (shortest PCL 1:1) less than or equal to 300 msec; and at the shortest PCL 1:1, an increase in the AH(More)
A 34-year-old female attended the orthodontic department and was concerned with a midline diastema in the lower arch. The diagnosis made was pathological migration owing to the habitual placement of her tongue stud on the incisal edges of her mandibular central incisors, forcing them apart. This article describes the causes of pathological migration, and(More)
Natural history, structural substrate, electrocardiographic and electrophysiologic characteristics and therapy were evaluated in 18 patients who demonstrated repetitive ventricular tachycardia, defined as repeated episodes of ventricular tachycardia that had a uniform QRS configuration and normal sinus-conducted QRS complexes between the episodes of(More)
