PURPOSE The aims of this study were to document our single-center experience with pediatric acute fulminant myocarditis (AFM) and to investigate its clinical features and short-term outcomes. METHODS We performed a retrospective chart review of all children <18 years old who were diagnosed with AFM between October 2008 and February 2013. Data about(More)
3D geospatial information is information which presents the real world, and contributes to quantitative analysis and decision making support of construction, forestry, disaster management etc. using integrated orthophoto, DEM, attribute data, 3D modeling and visualizing information. Multi-looking Aerial photogrammetric method, which is more efficient than(More)
Malfunction of the unidirectional valve in a breathing circuit system may cause hypercapnia from the rebreathing of expired gas, ventilation failure, and barotrauma. Capnography is a useful method for monitoring the integrity of the unidirectional valve. We experienced two cases of malfunction of a unidirectional valve which caused leakage and reverse flow,(More)
Caveolae may act as mechanosensors and function as binding sites for calcium ions. The intracaveolar localization of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) derived from the direct interaction of atrial granules with caveolae has been demonstrated. The aim of this study was to define the effect of caveolae on ANP secretion induced by stretch and angiotensin II.(More)
OBJECTIVE A randomized double-blind cross-over trial was conducted in patients with persistent auditory hallucinations (AHs) to investigate whether bilateral repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) at the temporoparietal area or Broca's area is more effective at high- or low-frequencies compared to a sham condition. METHODS Twenty three(More)
We report the case of a 33-year-old woman returning from Haiti, presenting to our emergency department (ED) with fever, rash and arthralgia. Following a broad workup that included laboratory testing for dengue and malaria, our patient was diagnosed with Chikungunya virus, which was then reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC In the literature, 7% of all cases of herpes zoster present as herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO). Of these cases, 20 to 79% have orbital involvement [1]. Nearly all orbital tissues, including extra­ocular muscles, can be affected by the varicella zoster virus. Orbital involvement may present as keratitis,(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC A 31-year old male patient who was 173 cm tall and weighed 67 kg visited our ENT clinic with dyspnea and laryngeal papilloma as his main complaints. According to laryngoscopic findings, a diffuse large papilloma was observed at the posterior wall of the left subglottis (Fig. 1A). The patient was scheduled for(More)
BACKGROUND Monitoring of anesthetic depth is important for successful general anesthesia. It is well known that entropy or BIS monitoring assisted titration of anesthetic drugs decreases their consumption. This study evaluated the effect of remifentanil on consumption of sevoflurane during entropy monitored general anesthesia. METHODS Patients were(More)
Breast surgery is a common procedure performed in women. Many women who undergo breast surgery suffer from ill-defined pain syndromes. A nerve block is used in the treatment of the acute and chronic pain, but the effectiveness of the treatment has been limited because of its short duration. Recently, the advent of pulsed radiofrequency lesioning (PRF) has(More)
