In August 2011, a Plasmodium vivax malaria infection was diagnosed in a Romanian traveller returning from Greece. This case together with several reports over the past decade of autochthonous cases in Greece highlight that malaria should be considered as differential diagnosis in symptomatic travellers returning from this country. Travellers may serve as(More)
Between January 1982 and December 1983 stereo colour photography covering 10 standard fields of 30 degrees and fluorescein angiography were performed in 64 consecutive patients with diabetes mellitus who had no clinical evidence of diabetic retinopathy. Fifty-two patients were excluded on the basis of the slightest photographic or angiographic evidence of(More)
The present study was undertaken to determine whether dextromethorphan (DM), a potent N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonist, could attenuate the effects of ischemia on rabbit ERG. Retinal ischemia was induced by increasing intraocular pressure to 120 mm Hg for 30, 60, or 90 min. DM was intravenously administered before ischemia and maintained throughout the(More)
Three groups of animals were studied during the four-hour period following their recovery from total occlusion of retinal circulation for periods of 30, 60 and 90 minutes. During incremental increases of ischemia, recovery followed a pattern that is the reverse of that previously reported, inasmuch as wave amplitude is concerned. From total extinction, ERGs(More)
PURPOSE To determine the role of dopamine in experimentally induced retinal ischemia. Experiment 1 was designed to study the effects of ischemic levels on dopamine (DA) metabolism. Experiment 2 evaluated the effects of ischemic duration on DA metabolism. The effects of recirculation time after ischemia on DA metabolism were investigated in experiment 3. (More)
In order to better understand the role of Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in mammalian retina, the dose related effects of human CGRP (hCGRP) on rabbit electroretinogram (ERG) were examined in the present study. CGRP was administered intraocularly in doses of 0.1, 1.0 and 10.0 micrograms. ERG A- and B-wave as well as oscillatory potentials (P1, P2,(More)
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a recognized cause of renal impairment and secondary hypertension. Being associated with important co-morbidities in elderly patients, its progressive condition might lead to serious Renal Artery Stenosis Review Upon Current Diagnosis and Endovascular Treatment in Light of Recent Studies Dana-Oliviana Geavlete1, Carmen(More)
