False aneurysms of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa are rare and usually complicate aortic valve endocarditis. We report a case of a false aneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa after recent bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement in the absence of endocarditis.
To determine the causes and time course of onset of functional asplenia in adults, a four-part investigation was conducted. This consisted of a review of the world's literature, a survey of colleagues, a detailed study of 4,476 consecutive liver-spleen scans in three hospitals, and continued monitoring of 3,500 scans in five hospitals. Based on the(More)
The sheep model is preferred for chronic evaluation of prosthetic heart valves, surgical techniques, and endocardiographic studies. A bileaflet mechanical heart valve (MHV) was implanted into a sheep model to study its in vivo performance and to evaluate the thrombogenic potential of the valve. Transesophageal echocardiography and transcranial Doppler(More)
Cardiovascular dysfunction appears to be an important complication of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and is being reported with greater frequency. There have been recent reports in the literature of HIV patients who suffer from vascular lesions such as large artery vasculopathy secondary to vasculitis, as well as accelerated atherosclerosis of(More)
The clinical efficacy of gliclazide and its effect on plasma glucose, body weight and serum lipids was assessed in a 3 months open trial of 30 obese, Non-Insulin Dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) patients who failed to respond to diet therapy alone. By day 20, the mean post prandial plasma glucose (PPG), and fasting plasma glucose (FPG) were significantly(More)
Although functional asplenia may be associated with decreased splenic perfusion, two cases are presented which illustrate that the converse is not necessarily true. That is, two patients with markedly reduced splenic perfusion still showed splenic extraction of radiocolloid. These cases clearly demonstrate the dissociation of splenic blood flow and the(More)
We report two cases of limb girdle pattern of muscle weakness caused by hyperparathyroidism due to parathyroid adenoma. It can be easily missed as early symptoms are non specific but once diagnosed it is easily treatable and complete recovery occurs over a period of time.
