Cerebral angiography provides valuable information for use in the clinical management of patients but can result in relatively high radiation doses to patients and staff due to the extended fluoroscopy time and number of images acquired during an examination. In this study, extremity doses to radiologists and scrub nurses working in a neuroradiological(More)
To clarify the pathogenesis of chest pain in patients with cardiomyopathies, we compared coronary blood flow and other indicators of ischemia at rest and during pacing-induced tachycardia in nine patients with cardiomyopathy (four hypertrophic and five congestive) and in five control subjects. Coronary blood flow was reduced at rest and during pacing in(More)
Experience is reported with 100 consecutive patients in whom percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was attempted on chronically occluded coronary arteries that had no visible anterograde flow. Ninety-eight patients had angina and all had collateral vessels to the occluded artery on angiography. A movable guidewire/dilatation system was used(More)
Clinical and hemodynamic benefits have been documented after giving diazepam to patients with coronary heart disease. The mechanisms by which this agent produces its hemodynamics effects are poorly understood. Partial autonomic blockade was induced in 10 patients by the intravenous administration of 5 mg propranolol and 0.8 mg atropine. Coronary and(More)
Distressing rates of embolic complications from coronary arteriography performed by the percutaneous femoral approach have been reported since 1972. From 1970-1974, 5250 patients underwent coronary arteriography in our laboratory by the same percutaneous femoral technique with preformed polyethylene catheters and no systemic heparinization. Data were(More)
A hemodynamic study was conducted in 11 patients with myocardial bridging and milking effect (ME) of the left anterior descending artery (LADA), but with otherwise normal coronary arteries. During pacing, patients with grade III ME (over 75% narrowing of arterial size during systole) showed anterior wall ischemia, lactate production and severe angina. Thus,(More)
We report 3 patients having a grade II milking effect of the proximal left anterior descending artery (LAD) and suffering from angina. Preoperative myocardial ischemia was demonstrated by stress ECG in all 3 and by pacing and lactates studies in 2. Surgical decompression of the systolically constricted artery has resulted in disappearance of angina,(More)
OBJECTIVES We conducted a retrospective review of patients with extrapulmonary small cell carcinomas (EPSCCs) to explore the distribution, treatments, patterns of relapse and outcomes by primary site. SETTING We have reviewed the outcomes of one of the largest data sets of consecutive patients with EPSCC identified from two major cancer centres. (More)
Optimal management of the critically ill patient in shock requires rapid identification of its etiology. We describe a successful application of an emergency physician performed bedside ultrasound in a patient presenting with shock and subsequent cardiac arrest. Pulmonary embolus was diagnosed using bedside echocardiogram and confirmed with CTA of the(More)
