UNLABELLED Purpose. Silver wound dressings are widely used in the treatment of burns. Dressings differ in material characteristics, various antimicrobial activities, and ease of use. The purpose of this study was to evaluate both dressing performance and amount of pain during the dressing changes of 2 silver dressings Urgotul SSD® (Laboratoires Urgo,(More)
Left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic volume (EDV) was determined in millilitres by equilibrium radionuclide ventriculography (MUGA) in 38 patients and in 15 normal individuals by applying corrections for background (BC), LV blood self-absorption and for absorption by the thoracic and LV walls. Volume calibration was performed by measuring a syringe(More)
The role of 2-dimensional echocardiography was comparatively evaluated to left ventriculography, with special reference to determinations of left ventricular volume (enddiastolic volume, endsystolic volume), ejection fraction, systolic and diastolic wall stress and left ventricular muscle mass. Prior to left ventriculography, 25 consecutive patients were(More)
The effects of long-term (mean 3.9 months) pharmacotherapy of hypertensive and normotensive hypertrophy (hypertensive heart disease, hypertrophic non-obstructive cardiomyopathy) as well as of advanced cardiac disease due to coronary artery disease and dilatative cardiomyopathy by large doses of nifedipine (mean 120 mg/day-1) were analyzed with regard to(More)
Prenalterol was examined with regard to its acute intravenous effects on left ventricular function, coronary hemodynamics, and myocardial oxygen consumption, as well as for its long-term effects, by oral therapy, on left ventricular function and systemic hemodynamics. Intravenous prenalterol enhances myocardial contractility and left ventricular ejection(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the safety and implementation of a diagnostic strategy in hospitalised patients with suspected acute pulmonary embolism (PE). A diagnostic strategy was established and implemented in a general hospital. A retrospective cohort study, including 400 consecutive in-patients, was performed in order to assess the(More)
The hemodynamic and contractile effects of acute cigarette smoking were analyzed in 35 patients with normal cardiac and coronary function as well as with cardiac failure and with coronary artery disease. In normal patients (normal ventricular function, normal coronary arteriogram) cigarette smoking exhibited no contractile depressant effects. Moderate(More)
