Glucose metabolism has been studied in the auditory cortex of human subjects with deafness of early onset, and compared to normal subjects with ears plugged. The metabolism in the auditory cortex and in the association auditory cortex was higher in deaf subjects than in normal subjects. This result is compared to similar observations that we made previously(More)
Aims To assess the accuracy of positron emission tomogra-phy to predict recovery of global cardiac function after revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease. Methods and Results One hundred and seventy-eight patients (157 male, 5810 years) with coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction (mean ejection fraction 3914%) were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the Patient/Physician Reported Efficacy Determination In Clinical Practice Trial (PREDICT; ClinicalTrials identifier NCT01255761) was to compare the patient-reported Routine Assessment of Patient Index Data 3 (RAPID-3) instrument with the investigator-based Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI) for assessing certolizumab pegol (CZP)(More)
BACKGROUND Migraine drugs can produce adverse cardiac effects. The authors have demonstrated previously that ergotamine can lead to a significant reduction of hyperemic myocardial blood flow, but little is known about the effect of the newer serotonin analogues. Coronary artery constriction caused by serotonin or its analogues is mediated mainly by 5HT2(More)
We describe a young woman who developed left ventricular failure and pulmonary edema during fulminant onset of multiple sclerosis. One of the numerous plaques was located in the left inferior cerebellar peduncle near the dorsal motor vagal and solitary tract nuclei. Within two days pulmonary edema had cleared, and within three days left ventricular function(More)
