OBJECTIVE Evaluation of haemodynamic effects after sublingual administration of 25 mg of captopril in patients with Acute Anterior Myocardial Infarction within the first 48 hours. DESIGN Determination of basal parameters and 30 minutes after 25 mg of captopril. SETTING Patients admitted in the ICU with Anterior Myocardial Infarction diagnosis. (More)
The authors present the case of a 52-year-old male patient with severe coronary artery disease, submitted to percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty on a type C right coronary artery lesion. The use of a platelet glycoprotein receptor IIb-IIIa inhibitor, Abciximab, led to severe thrombocytopenia, treated only with platelet concentrate transfusions(More)
There was been some controversy about non-Q wave myocardial infarction, its evolution and prognosis. The most recent studies showed that, in spite of the low immediate mortality in non-Q wave myocardial infarction, the long-term risk of ischaemia, reinfarction or sudden death is equal or even greater than in the Q-Wave myocardial infarction. In order to(More)
Changes in thyroid function may occur during treatment with amiodarone. A double blind prospective trial of amiodarone and placebo was performed in 37 patients in the subacute phase of myocardial infarction. Though none of the patients assigned to receive placebo developed any antibody, six of 13 patients treated with amiodarone developed antithyroid(More)
Tubular enzymes (TE) are early markers of acute kidney injury (AKI), but their value for liver transplant (LT) recipients is unknown. We sought to evaluate the usefulness of TE to predict AKI after LT. We enrolled Thirty-nine adult patients without AKI who had been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). AKI was diagnosed according to the Acute Kidney(More)
We purposed to study energy expenditure, power output and gross efficiency during kayak ergometer exercise in 12 elite sprint kayakers. 6 males (age 24.2±4.8 years, height 180.4±4.8 cm, body mass 79.7±8.5 kg) and 6 females (age 24.3±4.5 years, height 164.5±3.9 cm, body mass 65.4±3.5 kg), performed an incremental intermittent protocol on kayak ergometer with(More)
Phonoarticulation is characterized by changes in resonance, diadochokinesis, prosody, sound frequency, vocal quality, and intraoral pressure. The main aim of this study was to characterize the phonoarticulation in spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3) and correlate it with clinical and genetic factors. Thirty-one patients with SCA3 who were subjected to(More)
SUMMARY Using Holrer recordings and based on the principie that most of the survivors of acute rnyocardiai infarction who are going o~ diu suddcniy after hospital discharge are those who present ventricular premarure beats (VPB), the authors have studicd the effecr of three different antidysrhythmic drugs — procainamide (PA), oxprenolol (OX) and(More)
