The data from this study document that dobutamine is a powerful inotropic agent in anesthetized dogs with acute myocardial ischemia and in awake, unsedated ones with chronic myocardial infarction. Dobutamine significantly increases heart rate at relatively small doses in anesthetized dogs with acute myocardial ischemia but considerably larger amounts of(More)
Studies were performed to determine whether an alteration in coronary vascular resistance and a reduction in the reflow phenomenon occurred in the blood-perfused, heparinized canine heart after various periods of myocaridal ischemia. Regional myocardial blood flow was measured with radioactive microspheres. Proximal left anterior descending coronary artery(More)
The computer-analysed 3 orthogonal lead system ("3-lead ECG") provides a rapid and consistent interpretation of the electrocardiogram. In 102 patients undergoing selective coronary arteriography, the ability of such a system to predict the presence of absence of coronary artery disease and the site of myocardial ischaemia was compared with that of the(More)
The following recommendations are made: 1 Existing centres undertaking angioplasty should increase their activity, and the target figure of 400 PTCA procedures per million of the United Kingdom population should be achieved by the end of 1996-97, or immediately thereafter. 2 Angioplasty centres should be appropriately equipped to undertake PTCA safely and(More)
The Doppler echocardiographic characteristics of 70 prosthetic valves in 35 patients are reported. Twenty nine patients had a Björk-Shiley prosthesis in both mitral and tricuspid positions and six had Carpentier-Edwards valves in both sites. Five of the patients had abnormal tricuspid prostheses on the basis of clinical and echocardiographic criteria.(More)
?The cardiovascular effects of the cardioselective beta, agonist prenalterol have been studied in nine patients with severe chronic congestive cardiac failure and in six patients with left ventricular dysfunction resulting from previous myocardial infarction. In the patients with cardiac failure intravenous prenalterol in a dosage of 1.5 microgram/kg(More)
A series of deregulatory reforms have promoted accelerated equity issuance at the expense of adequate time for underwriter due diligence. These reforms have gained wide acceptance, raising doubts about the value of due diligence investigations for today's large seasoned issuers. However, recent high-profile corporate scandals indicate that due diligence(More)
In this paper, we develop and test a model that connects information production by auditors and analysts to the expected duration of accounting fraud. Using a sample of AAERs issued by the SEC, we find that the likelihood of fraud detection is significantly greater in the quarter following the issuance of audited financial statements. Furthermore, the(More)
