This case report describes MR imaging of lupus myocarditis that was used for diagnosis and follow up in a patient who declined cardiac biopsy. We also review the(More)
We present a patient with a history of coronary artery disease and exertional angina after an acute anterior myocardial infarction. Angiography and ventriculography revealed multivessel coronary artery disease and a large apical aneurysm. Echocardiography and gated SPECT studies were performed for further evaluation of ischemia and assessment of left(More)
Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium are both human intestinal colonizers frequently used in medical bacteriology teaching laboratories in order to train students in bacterial identification. In addition, hospitals within the United States and around the world commonly isolate these bacteria because they are a cause of bacteremia, urinary tract(More)
In the area of drug-eluting stents (DES), complex interventional procedures are increasing in number. In particular, the number of patients undergoing three-vessel or bifurcation lesion stenting is rising, together with increasing concern about the risk of acute stent thrombosis in the area of the DES.
