BACKGROUND & AIMS Hepatic, splenic, portal, and mesenteric veins are confluent elements within the splanchnic system. It is therefore unclear whether thromboses of isolated segments represent unique entities. We compared etiologies, recurrence, and survival of patients with thromboses of different splanchnic venous segments. METHODS An inception cohort of(More)
A rare clinical occurrence, heart failure in the setting of tricuspid stenosis should immediately trigger a search for underlying systemic carcinoid disease. Carcinoid tumor cells can secrete a variety of vasoactive substances that result in skin erythema, excretory diarrhea, bronchospasm, and hemodynamic instability, but these manifestations are noted only(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the usefulness of a comparison of clinical failure and restenosis rates of endovascular procedures at 1 year in patients with peripheral arterial disease. The resulting comparison is presented as "clinical failure/restenosis coordinate." The authors screened 171 papers describing the outcome of lower extremity(More)
Due to the poor correlation between symptoms and left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction in a chronic heart failure (HF) population, the ability to identify patients who demonstrate LV functional recovery poses a dilemma for the clinician. Serial echocardiograms are not practical in a large outpatient HF population. Plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP)(More)
