Among 200 consecutive cases of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) treated in a CCU, 117 episodes of slow ventricular tachycardia were observed in 72 patients. This figure represents a 36% rate of incidence. It is a relatively high figure because of the close monitoring to which the patient is submitted and because of the early admission to the unit.

In this paper we propose a 3D mathematical model for planning a corrective ostectomy on bones with angular deformities. Angular deformity is usually treated with a surgery procedure called Center of Rotation of Angulation (CORA) [3, 1, 4, 2, 5] which uses 2D radiographic images and without considering rotational deviation. Our proposal is based on a 3D(More)
Common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) account for a large proportion of the heritability of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Co-ocurrence of OCD and schizophrenia is commoner than expected based on their respective prevalences, complicating the clinical management of patients. This study addresses two main objectives: to identify particular(More)
