OBJECTIVE We investigated whether crossed legs are a prognostic marker in patients with severe stroke. METHODS In this controlled prospective observational study, we observed patients with severe stroke who crossed their legs during their hospital stay and matched them with randomly selected severe stroke patients who did not cross their legs. The(More)
Neointimal hyperplasia is the most common complication of all forms of arterial reconstructions. This response of the vascular wall to injury is influenced by many factors, especially, but not limited to, by the hemodynamic profile in the area of vascular anastomosis and in its close proximity. To eliminate this negative influence of hemodynamics on(More)
Decrease of arterial wall shear stress (WSS) is associated with higher probability of atherosclerotic plaque development in many disease conditions. End-stage renal diseases (ESRD) patients suffer from vascular disease frequently, but its nature differs from general population. This study was aimed at proving an association between common carotid wall shear(More)
Vascular stenosis is often described only by its percentage in both clinical and scientific praxis. Previous studies gave inconclusive results regarding the effect of stenosis eccentricity on its hemodynamic effect. The aim of this experimental study was to investigate and quantify the effect of stenosis severity and eccentricity on the pressure drop. A(More)
We describe 3 patients with an initial diagnosis of myocardial infarction, in whom a definitive diagnosis of myocarditis was subsequently established. All had precordial chest pain, electrocardiographic changes, elevated cardiac enzyme levels and regional wall motion abnormalities of the left ventricle compatible with myocardial infarction. During(More)
BACKGROUND Lower expression of secretoglobin and transferrin has been found in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of a small number of horses with experimentally induced signs of recurrent airway obstruction (RAO) compared to healthy controls. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES Secretoglobin and transferrin BALF expression will be similarly decreased in horses(More)
