BACKGROUND Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) predicts adverse prognosis in patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the interaction with conventional risk factors remains uncertain. Our aim was to assess whether the extent of LGE is an independent predictor of adverse cardiac outcome beyond(More)
This study aims to assess whether an alternative method, that is based on volumetric surface detection (VoSD) without tracing and is totally free of geometric assumptions, can improve the reproducibility of right ventricular (RV) volume quantification from cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) images, in comparison with a conventional disk-area technique. In a(More)
When a mother's milk is unavailable, the best alternative is donor milk (DM). Milk delivered to Human Milk Banks should be pasteurized in order to inactivate the microbial agents that may be present. Currently, pasteurization, performed at 62.5 °C for 30 min (Holder Pasteurization, HoP), is recommended for this purpose in international guidelines. Several(More)
A full-term female newborn with neonatal asphyxia and severe anemia (Hb 2.5 g/dL) with normal heart developed a massive myocardial infarction. No examinations were performed during pregnancy for parental nomadism. The baby had immediate external cardiac massage, ventilatory assistance, and blood transfusion. Cardiomegaly was evident at chest X-ray and(More)
We compared contrast-enhanced MRI (CeMRI) with the most widely used imaging techniques for myocardial infarct (MI) diagnosis, SPECT and Echo, in unselected patients with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD). Two blinded operators assessed scars on MRI, SPECT and Echo images using a 16-segments LV model. We studied 105 consecutive patients: 50 had Q-wave MI(More)
