OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the effect that the computer interpretation (CI) of electrocardiograms (EKGs) has on the accuracy of resident (noncardiologist) physicians reading EKGs. DESIGN A randomized, controlled trial was conducted in a laboratory setting from February through June 2001, using a two-period crossover design with… (More)
This paper deals with the estimation of terrain topography from multipass synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry (InSAR), focusing on the case where variation of the system geometry within the imaged swath is relevant. A typical case is represented by airborne multipass interferometric campaigns where, due to the closeness between the radar sensor… (More)

Work related injuries, above all those involving young people, are an important health and social issue, even though up to now small attention has been deserved in spite of the presence of about 68 workers per 1000 young people and the occurrence of 27400 injures in young people in 2000 in Italy. This study was aimed at improving the knowledge on work… (More)
This paper considers the retrieval of ground elevation in presence of volume scattering, basing on multibaseline airborne SAR data. Once the interferometric phases related to ground-only contributions have been estimated through Algebraic Synthesis technique, the problem is similar to the one of generating a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) basing on multiple… (More)
Circulating levels of endogenous ouabain (EO), a vasopressor hormone of adrenocortical origin, are increased by sodium depletion. Furthermore, lanosterol synthase, an enzyme involved in cholesterol biosynthesis, has a missense polymorphism (rs2254524 V642L) that affects EO biosynthesis in adrenocortical cells. Here, we investigated the hypothesis that… (More)
We present the case of a 65-year-old male patient without any family history of renal or hepatic disease. He had been on maintenance hemodialysis for 4 months because of autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. At the start of the hemodialysis session he reported general malaise, abdominal pain, fever and diarrhea occurring in the last two days.… (More)
The Na(+) pump and its Endogenous modulator Ouabain (EO) can be considered as an ancestral enzymatic system, conserved among species ranging from Drosophila to humans, related to Na handling. In this review, we examine how EO is linked with vascular function in hypertension and if it impacts the pathogenesis of heart and renal failure. Moreover, the… (More)
This paper reports that cortisol at physiological concentrations minimizes the enhancement of human natural killer (NK) cell activity in vitro by immune interferon (IFN-γ). This effect may be important for the regulation of NK cytotoxicity in vivo.
The release of ureteral occlusion leads to a progressive recovery in LDH isoenzyme pattern with gradual increase of anodic fractions and decrease of middle and cathodic ones. Our findings demonstrate that the recovery is accomplished on the 10–14th day, in agreement with morphological and metabolic observation.
