The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma rests primarily on determination of the 24-hour urinary excretion of catecholamines and their metabolites. In most cases nephrotomography and selective arteriography or venography, or both, are sufficient to localize the tumour. Selective venous catheterization and the assay of plasma catecholamines should be considered for(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the correlation between blood pressure (BP) variability and leukoaraiosis (LA) amount in patients with symptomatic cerebral small-vessel disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS We included 25 hypertensive patients: 13 with Binswanger's disease (BD) and 12 with a first-ever lacunar infarction (LI). Baseline office BP was obtained for 3(More)
UNLABELLED To determine whether blood pressure (BP) variability is increased in hypertensive patients with Binswanger's disease (BD), we studied two samples of consecutive treated hypertensive patients: (1) 11 with BD (mean age 71.3 +/- 5.2 years); (2) 16 with lacunar infarction (mean age 65.2 +/- 8.3 years) without cognitive impairment. An averaged(More)
In a patient with aortic valve endocarditis a myocardial abscess, complete heart block and acute aortic regurgitation developed. Echocardiography gave evidence of large aortic valve vegetations, and at operation vegetations were found to have destroyed the right coronary cusp and part of the noncoronary cusp. Following surgery the patient recovered.(More)
BACKGROUND It is accepted that patient education can be beneficial in the treatment of chronic diseases. We conducted an educational intervention (EI) in hypertensive patients seen at Primary Care centres (PCC) and specialised Hypertension Units (SHU). OBJECTIVES To assess patient's knowledge of hypertension and to verify the impact of this educational(More)
The insertion/deletion polymorphism (I/D) of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene has been associated in some studies with a higher prevalence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), but few of them were performed on pharmacologically treated hypertensive patients. The present study was undertaken to determine whether ACE genotype determination could(More)
