OBJECTIVE To study the impact of red cell distribution width (RDW) on postoperative recovery after correction of Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). BACKGROUND Increased RDW indicates dysregulated erythropoiesis and predicts survival in critical illnesses that include idiopathic pulmonary artery hypertension and chronic heart failure. Myocardial injury and… (More)
BACKGROUND The immediate and intermediate-term neurodevelopmental outcome in infants undergoing open heart procedures using deep hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass was assessed prospectively. METHODS One hundred consecutive infants (age 2 to 174 days) were operated on using either deep hypothermic bypass only (group A, n = 28), or with associated… (More)
The asymptotic behavior of solutions of Volterra integro-differential equations of the form f* x'(t) = A(t)x(t) + K(t,s)x(s)ds + F(t) Jo is discussed in which A is not necessarily a stable matrix. An equivalent equation which involves an arbitrary function is derived and a proper choice of this function would pave a way for the new coefficient matrix B… (More)
Optic disc asymmetry is a common finding. In the majority of cases automated visual fields are normal. However, in a minority, a visual field defect may lead to a diagnosis of normal tension glaucoma. Rarely, the optic discs and visual field deteriorate irrespective of the normal or reduced intraocular pressure.
