Six days old neonate with pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum is reported in which a communication was established between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. The membraneous atresia was perforated with a special radiofrequency catheter 2F connected to a Hat 200S radiofrequency generator (Osypka). The energy necessary to perforation(More)
Autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are a clinical and genetically heterogeneous group of debilitating neurodegenerative diseases that are related to at least 36 different genetic loci; they are clinically characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia and are frequently accompanied by other neurological and non-neurological manifestations.(More)
PURPOSE To study the spatial arrangement of the bundles of myocardial fibers presents in the left atrial-venous junctions and in the wall of the pulmonary veins. METHODS The study was made on 24 human adult hearts, together with pulmonary vessels, fixed in 10% formaldehyde solution. Each specimen was cleared of remnants of pericardium to expose the(More)
A 44-year-old man presented with severe right visual loss. The right fundus examination showed marked optic disc oedema associated with partial macular star. Serological blood tests for infectious agents were all negative. Serum aquaporin-4 antibody was negative but anti-MOG (myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein) was positive. Magnetic resonance revealed(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the early physical conditioning (PC) effect [initiated 15 days after the myocardial revascularization surgery (MRS)] in the functional capacity. METHODS Twenty-two male patients (mean-age of 52y-o), divided in two groups (A and B, 11 patients each), were studied. Group A started PC 3 months after MRS (phase III), with a training(More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluate correlations between variations in eletrocardiogram (ECG) recordings and acute myocardial infarction. METHODS Use of a low-cost software to digitalize printed and/or ".pdf" file format ECG recordings. Calculation of ST-segment area and amplitudes of the J and Y points. RESULTS The amplitude of the Y point holds maximum correlation(More)
