Body surface potential mapping assessed mean cardiac electrical activation times displayed by isochronal maps in the right ventricle (RV; right ventricle mean activation time [mRV]), anterior septal area (anterior septal area mean activation time [mAS]), and left ventricle (left ventricle mean activation time [mLV]) of 28 patients (mean, 61.07 years;(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of azathioprine on the mucociliary system in a model of bronchial section and anastomosis in rats. METHODS Thirty-six male Wistar-Furth rats were submitted to left bronchial section and anastomosis and divided into two groups to receive either saline solution or azathioprine. After 7, 15 and 30 days of treatment, six(More)
BACKGROUND QT interval dispersion (QTd) has been valued as a marker of increased vulnerability for cardiac arrhythmias. QTd was analyzed in patients undergoing the left partial ventriculectomy (LPV) or Batista operation, a palliative surgery for patients in the line for heart transplantation, which is associated with complex arrhythmia and death from(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine possible variations in the Anthropometric Index for pectus excavatum relative to age, race, and sex in individuals free of thoracic wall deformities. METHODS Between 2002 and 2012, 166 individuals with morphologically normal thoracic walls consented to have their chests and the perimeter of the lower third of the thorax measured(More)
BACKGROUND The Batista operation, or partial ventriculectomy, has been designed by the Brazilian surgeon Dr. Randas Batista as an alternative method for treating patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. HYPOTHESIS This study aimed to analyze electro- and vectorcardiographic data obtained from patients who underwent such surgery, and to evaluate(More)
