Thirteen procedures of oocyte donation by the gamete intra-Fallopian transfer (GIFT) technique are described. The patients included six women with premature ovarian failure, four normally cycling women with unexplained infertility who responded poorly to super-ovulation induction in preparation for GIFT, and lastly one woman carrier of a 16/21 balanced(More)
This study describes eleven procedures of non-surgical recovery of preimplantation conceptuses from the uteri of eight fertile donor women and the transfer of the recovered pre-embryos into the uteri of infertile recipients with primary ovarian failure, or with hypothalamic--pituitary failure. Conjugated oestrogens and progesterone were administered to(More)
AIMS We investigated the applicability of the Ventricular Capture Control (VCC) and Atrial Capture Control (ACC) algorithms for automatic management of cardiac stimulation featured by Biotronik pacemakers in a broad, unselected population of pacemaker recipients. METHODS AND RESULTS Ventricular Capture Control and Atrial Capture Control were programmed to(More)
Growing interest in preimplantation genetic diagnosis has indicated uterine flushing as one method for obtaining human preimplantation embryos. To date, our institution has performed non-surgical uterine flushing to donate the recovered embryos to infertile recipients. We performed 127 flushings in 127 cycles using a modified urinary bladder catheter. Using(More)
PURPOSE--To evaluate if the levels of lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], apolipoproteins (apo) A1, B and the lipid profile (LP) differ among heart transplantation (HT) patients, with coronary artery disease (CAD) and patients without CAD (NL) and if LP discriminates patients with graft vascular disease (GVD). METHODS--A hundred and seventy patients separated in 3(More)
A case of dextrocardia in situs viscerum inversus, prior myocardial infarction, dilated cardiomyopathy with severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction, ventricular tachyarrhythmias and recurrent episodes of heart failure is described. Coronary artery bypass grafting for multivessel coronary artery disease had been previously performed; coronary and graft(More)
A single attempt of gamete intra-Fallopian transfer was performed in 106 patients, who had previously failed to become pregnant after a certain number of artificial donor inseminations. A maximum of six unselected oocytes were transferred into the tubes. Fifty-five clinical pregnancies (51.9%) were obtained. There were 11 multiple pregnancies (20%) and 10(More)
A 24 year-old man was admitted with hypertensive crises and diagnosis hypothesis of neurofibromathosis and pheochromocytoma with blood pressure of 150 x 110mmHg and in use of anti-hypertensive drugs. The electrocardiogram (EKG) showed left ventricle hypertrophy. An echocardiogram showed interventricular septum (IVS) thickness of 16mm, posterior wall (PW)(More)
