Electrophysiologic study, isoproterenol infusion, and serial treadmill exercise tests before and after administration of propranolol, verapamil, lidocaine, and procainamide were done in three patients with exercise-triggered ventricular tachycardia. In all three patients, organic heart diseases were absent. Ventricular tachycardia was reproducibly provoked(More)
Electrophysiologic studies were performed before and 2 hours after the oral administration of 270 mg of diltiazem in 3 divided doses at 8-hour intervals in 36 patients with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Before diltiazem, all 36 patients had induction of sustained SVT: 24 with atrioventricular (AV) reentrance incorporating an accessory(More)
UNLABELLED The present work assesses the potential of three-dimensional (3D) porous titanium (pore size of 188-390 μm and porosity of 70%) fabricated by vacuum diffusion bonding of titanium meshes for applications in bone engineering. Rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells were used to investigate the proliferation and differentiation of cells on titanium(More)
In 14 patients with atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia incorporating an accessory pathway, electrophysiologic studies were performed before and serially at 0.5--1-hour intervals for 6 hours after the fourth dose of 80 mg of oral verapamil given every 6 hours. Verapamil increased both the longest atrial paced cycle length producing type 1(More)
An experimental platform for solidification of undercooled melt and synchronous measurement of magnetization under strong magnetic field is reported. The facility can be used for in-situ measurement of the magnetization of the undercooled melts and to studying the non-equilibrium solidification from deeply undercooled metals and alloys in magnetic field.(More)
In 22 patients with atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia incorporating a retrogradely conducting accessory pathway, electrophysiologic studies were done before and after oral digoxin, 1.25 mg, and propranolol, 160 to 240 mg, each given in 4 divided doses at 6-hour intervals. Before digoxin and propranolol, all 22 patients had induction of sustained(More)
Factors determining tachycardia induction using ventricular stimulation in atrioventricular (AV) nodal reentrant tachycardia utilizing the slow pathway for anterograde and the fast pathway for retrograde conduction were analyzed in 53 patients. Sixteen patients had tachycardia induced by ventricular stimulation. In 15, tachycardia was inducible with(More)
Porous titanium with average pore size of 100-650 μm and porosity of 30-70% was fabricated by diffusion bonding of titanium meshes. Pore structure was characterized by Micro-CT scan and SEM. Compressive behavior of porous titanium in the out-of-plane direction was studied. The effect of porosity and pore size on the compressive properties was also discussed(More)
High magnetic field is a powerful tool to tune the microstructure and improve the properties of materials. In this report, the nucleation behavior of undercooled Co76Sn24 near eutectic alloy under strong homogeneous and gradient magnetic fields have been investigated using glass slag fluxing method in a 12 T superconducting magnet. The mean undercooling of(More)
Porous titanium and its alloys are believed to be one of the most attractive biomaterials for orthopedic implant applications. In the present work, porous pure titanium with 50-70% porosity and different pore size was fabricated by diffusion bonding. Compression fatigue behavior was systematically studied along the out-of-plane direction. It resulted that(More)
