BACKGROUND Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) has become one of the most treatable hematologic neoplasms since the advent of the tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), but it was not known if similar treatment outcomes could be achieved in a resource-limited country. We tested the hypothesis that, despite challenges to access to second-generation TKIs, excellent(More)
The safety and efficacy of streptokinase (STK) (Kabikinase; Keatings) in restoring vessel patency in 70 patients with acute myocardial infarction are reported. Return of vessel patency occurred more frequently (76%) in patients receiving STK than in patients in a control group (12%) (P = 0.001). The main complication was bleeding, which invariably resulted(More)
Two cases of sudden cardiac death during ambulatory ECG monitoring, each with an episode of torsade de pointes as part of the terminal dysrhythmia, are reported. In the first case, pause-dependent changes of the TU waves favour early after-depolarisations and triggered activity as the initiating mechanism of torsade. Quinidine therapy was probably an(More)
In this modern day and age, severe injury has become the dire consequence of an ever-increasing number of motor vehicle, industrial and mining accidents as well as sport-, military- and terror-related incidents that occur. The management of the severely injured patient is mostly directed on an exclusively physical level. Often, very little attention is(More)
We report five South African families of northern European descent (pedigrees 161, 162, 163, 164, and 166) in whom Romano-Ward long QT syndrome (LQT) segregates. The disease mapped to a group of linked markers on chromosome 11p15.5, with maximum combined two point lod scores, all generated at theta = 0, of 15.43 for the D11S922, 10.51 for the D11S1318, and(More)
