This study evaluates the effect of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) scanning on pacemaker function. It must be emphasized that each manufacturer's pulse generators and each pacing modality may behave differently and, therefore, require individual evaluation. According to our results, patients with pacemakers should have their pacing activity monitored(More)
UNLABELLED Reactive oxygen species (ROS) activate hepatic stellate cells and enhance fibrogenesis. This study determined the role of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate, reduced form (NADPH) oxidase deficiency in the development of hepatocellular necrosis, inflammation, and apoptosis in relation to fibrosis produced by chronic carbon tetrachloride(More)
A 56-year-old white man with a history of Wegener granulomatosis (WG) presented in May 2003 with 6 days of sinus congestion, fever, malaise, myalgias, and red eyes. The appearance of these symptoms in the context of his previous WG immediately led to hospitalization. On admission, his serum creatinine level was discovered to be 3.8 mg/dL (336 μmol/L)(More)
This study evaluated effects of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy on four models of Medtronic implantable cardiac pacemakers. In vitro testing consisted of: (1) unsynchronized pacemaker strapped on the patient with extracorporeal shock synchronized to the patient's native heart rate; and (2) pacemakers suspended alone in water 6 inches from the focal(More)
The first three cases of kala-azar from Afghanistan are reported. Two girls (aged 4 and 5 years) and a 5-year-old boy reported from Kabul and Badghis Province with classical features of visceral leishmaniasis. The diagnosis was based on the demonstration of amastigotes in the bone marrow.
