Sixty patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes underwent M-mode echocardiographic examination. They were all in good metabolic control under treatment with oral antidiabetic drugs and/or diet; none had clinical evidence of micro- or macroangiopathy, cardiovascular disease, arterial hypertension, or other associated risk factors. The control group(More)
Three different types of cardiovascular sequelae attributed to interferon therapy have been reported: arrhythmia, ischaemic heart disease and cardiomyopathy. We evaluated the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) during alpha interferon therapy (3 MU administered subcutaneously three times a week for 6 months) in 11 patients with chronic viral(More)
Zinc and copper levels in the blood and urine of 44 liver cirrhosis patients and 10 healthy volunteers are reported. The clinical severity of the liver disease (according to the Child classification system) was correlated with the levels of the two metals. An attempt was also made to break down the parameters on which the Child System in based in order to(More)
BACKGROUND The percentage of diabetic patients who do not benefit from the protective effect of aspirin is larger than in other populations at cardiovascular risk. OBJECTIVE We compared the ability of aspirin to suppress TxA2 and platelet activation in vivo, in type-2 diabetics vs. high-risk non-diabetic patients. METHODS Urinary 11-dehydro-TXB2, plasma(More)
BACKGROUND The mixed epithelial stromal tumour is morphologically characterised by a mixture of solid and cystic areas consisting of a biphasic proliferation of glands admixed with solid areas of spindle cells with variable cellularity and growth patterns. In previous reports the seminal vesicle cystoadenoma was either considered a synonym of or(More)
For the purpose of assessing the cardiovascular effects of hemodialysis (HD), M-mode echocardiography was performed 24 hours before and 2 hours after this procedure in 15 patients with chronic renal failure. The results, which include computer analysis of digitized interventricular septum (IVS) and left ventricular posterior wall (LVPW), show the following(More)
A cognitive survey of the state of the art of cardiac rehabilitation in the pediatric age in Italy has been carried out, involving in the inquiry 22 Centers of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery, and the Italian Societies of Cardiovascular Surgery and Functional Evaluation and Cardiac Rehabilitation, to assess whether this topic has the dimensions of(More)
In 34 asymptomatic subjects, aged 16 to 39 years, with clearcut abnormalities of ventricular repolarization on resting electrocardiogram, a forced hyperventilation and maximal exercise test were performed. The stress test was repeated, using the same protocol, after sublingual administration of nitroglycerin (0.3 mg) and of i.v. injection of propranolol(More)
