A consecutive series of 200 patients having aortofemoral bypass grafts were studied in order to determine the effect of femoropopliteal occlusive disease on the results and the role of concomitant femorodistal bypass. Bifurcated aortic grafts were used in 177 patients and unilateral aortofemoral grafts in 23 giving 377 limbs for study. Of the 377 limbs, 184(More)
Background. Non-invasive cardiac output monitoring (NICOM) using bioreactance (BRT) in pregnancy is gaining interest but lacks validation. We compared simultaneous cardiac output (CO) measurements obtained using the NICOM ® (BRT-CO) and echocardiography (echo-CO), and assessed the relationship between maternal characteristics and myocardial performance.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS There is a paucity of data on left ventricle (LV) rotational physiology in neonates. We aimed to assess rotational mechanics in infants with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and premature infants (<32 weeks) at 36 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) (preterm group) and compare them with healthy term controls (term controls). We also(More)
BACKGROUND Assessment of myocardial performance in neonates using advanced techniques such as deformation imaging and rotational mechanics has gained considerable interest. The applicability of these techniques for elucidating abnormal myocardial performance in various clinical scenarios is becoming established. We hypothesise that term infants born to(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to firstly identify the different haemodynamic profiles amongst nulliparous women who develop either gestational hypertension (GH), pre-eclampsia (PE), normotensive fetal growth restriction (FGR) versus unaffected pregnancies using non-invasive cardiac output monitoring (NICOM®). Our second primary objective was to assess the ability of(More)
