We studied 19 patients with pericardial disease using two-dimensional and three-dimensional transthorathic echocardiography (2DTTE and 3DTTE, respectively) in order to determine whether 3DTTE provides incremental value on top of 2DTTE in the evaluation of these patients. With 3DTTE a more comprehensive assessment of pericardial effusion can be made and both(More)
This study was conducted to evaluate the different change in arterial blood gases and cardiovascular system in 50 healthy females during laparoscopic sterilization procedure performed under general or local anaesthesia. Women who had laparoscopic sterilization under local anaesthesia, showed an increase in respiratory rate by 17% in response to hypercarbia(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the value of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in determining the presence of cardiac manifestations that required anticoagulation in patients presenting with acute stroke. METHODS Of 626 consecutive stroke patients who underwent TEE, 188 patients with no obvious etiology for stroke were(More)
Two patients, an adult and a baby, with an aneurysm of the coronary sinus are described. This unusual anomaly was detected in the baby during angiographic investigations for congenital heart disease. The aneurysm was an unexpected postmortem finding in the adult. Although the adult died suddenly, there was no evidence that this could be linked to the(More)
1. Plasma tyrosine and urinary p-hydroxyphenyl lactic acid (PHPLA) and p-hydroxyphenyl acetic acid (PHPAA) were studied in thirty patients with marasmus and twenty normal controls in the same age group. 2. In the control group conventional tyrosyluria was not observed but 30% of the group excreted high levels of PHPAA. In the group with marasmus, plasma(More)
INTRODUCTION Assessment of the depth of anaesthesia is fundamental to the anaesthetic practice. Entropy measurement is an objective monitoring and is of two types- Response Entropy (RE) and State Entropy (SE) indicating analgesic and hypnotic levels during general anaesthesia. AIM The aim of our study was to assess the depth of anaesthesia for LMA(More)
