Endoscopic morphology of duodenal ulcer (DU) have been studied in 188 patients repeatedly observed in the course of medical therapy (120 with conventional therapy and 68 with Cimetidine alone). The evolutive behaviour under treatment reveals a clear speeding up effect of Cimetidine on the healing time with a smaller number of failed and delayed recoveries(More)
The thoracodorsal vessels have been the standard recipient vessels for the majority of surgeons performing free transverse rectus abdominis musculocutaneous (TRAM) flap reconstructions. Recently, the internal mammary vessels have been recommended as the first-choice recipient vessels for microvascular breast reconstruction. This approach requires a shorter(More)
Enalapril was used to treat five patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension secondary to congenital cardiopathy, three with ventricular septal defect, one with arterial septal defect, and one with patent ductus arteriosus. The dose of enalapril was 20 mg/day. All patients underwent pretreatment and posttreatment cardiac catheterization. It was concluded(More)
Sodium nitroprusside (SNP) is rarely used in cardiology. It is reserved traditionally for severe episodes of arterial hypertension. Certain states of refractory heart failure represent new indications for use, which implies a double haemodynamic monitoring system: continuous control of systemic blood pressure by intra-arterial catheterization; control of(More)
Enalapril (E) was used to treat 16 patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension, 6 primary and 10 secondary, 5 of the latter with congenital heart disease and 5 with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The average dose of E was 20 mg/day. All patients underwent pre and post-treatment cardiac catheterization with determination of pressures at: right(More)
Cutaneous metastatic carcinoma, also known as carcinoma erysipeloides, is an unusual clinical finding. In women, it is most frequently found in association with breast cancer rather than other visceral malignancies. Breast cancer patients can present with cutaneous manifestations of breast disease at the time of their initial diagnosis; however, cutaneous(More)
Isoproterenol and salbutamol caused relaxation of guinea-pig trachea, and generation of PGE2. The phenomenon appears to be specific for beta-adrenergic agonists since the relaxant activity induced by atropine, theophylline and papaverine was not associated with generation of prostaglandin-like material from tracheal smooth muscles. Indomethacin reduced only(More)
