We prospectively evaluated and followed 204 patients with syncope to determine how often a cause of syncope could be established and to define the prognosis of such patients. A cardiovascular cause was established in 53 patients and a noncardiovascular cause in 54. The cause remained unknown in 97 patients. At 12 months, the overall mortality was 14 +/- 2.5(More)
The incidence and the diagnostic and prognostic implications of recurrences in 433 patients enrolled in a prospective syncope study are reported. Over a mean follow-up of 30 months, 146 patients had recurrent syncope. Patients with an initial diagnosis of a cardiovascular cause of syncope had a recurrence rate of 31 percent, patients with a(More)

Long-term prognosis was determined in 70 patients with unexplained syncope who underwent electrophysiologic testing between April 1981 and April 1986. The electrophysiologic study had positive results in 37 patients--31 with ventricular tachycardia, 3 with supraventricular tachycardia and 3 with abnormal conduction. There was no significant difference in(More)
To our knowledge, there is no previous clinical description in the literature of patients with defecation syncope. We evaluated 20 patients with this disorder who were a subgroup of a larger, prospective study of syncope, 13 women and seven men, with a mean age of 59 years. Eleven patients had had one episode and nine had experienced multiple episodes.(More)
The purposes of this study were to document the findings on prolonged electrocardiographic monitoring in patients with syncope, correlate these findings with symptoms during monitoring, and define the prognostic importance of these findings. A total of 235 patients with syncope in whom a cause was not assigned or suggested by the initial history, physical(More)
An extensive literature in psychology, economics, statistics, operations research and management science has dealt with comparing forecasts based on human-expert judgment vs. (statistical) models in a variety of scenarios, mostly finding advantage of the latter, yet acknowledging the necessity of the former. Although computers can use vast amounts of data(More)
Tumors involving the distal humerus are extremely rare. Those tumors can be safely resected and then the extremity reconstructed. In this article, we present a series of patients treated with hinged semiconstrained modular distal humeral replacement for reconstruction following wide resection of tumors of the distal humerus. We retrospectively reviewed the(More)
