AIMS Cardiovascular (CV) disease is a major cause of reduced life expectancy in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Intensive insulin therapy prevents CV complications but is constrained by hypoglycaemia and weight gain. Adjunct metformin reduces insulin dose requirement and stabilizes weight but there are no data on its cardiovascular effects. We have therefore(More)
The present analogue study of seventy-two students with mild spider anxiety assessed the role of distraction in the desensitization and reprocessing of aversive information. Accessing different components of Baddeley's model of short-term memory, three treatment groups involving distraction tasks and one control group maintaining focussed exposure were(More)
OBJECTIVE Biomechanical comparison between locked plating and retrograde nailing of supracondylar femur fractures with simulated postoperative weight-bearing. METHODS The Locking Condylar Plate (LCP) and Retrograde/Antegrade EX Femoral Nail (RAFN) were tested using 10 paired elderly cadaveric femurs, divided into Normal and Low Bone Mineral Density (BMD)(More)
It is desirable to maintain normal, conducted ventricular activation in patients with dual-chamber pacemakers and preserved atrioventricular (AV) conduction. The shortest AV delay resulting in consistent ventricular inhibition (avoiding ventricular pseudofusion) was determined by a conventional incremental (inside-out) technique vs the alternate decremental(More)
