Leptotrichia species typically colonize the oral cavity and genitourinary tract. We report the first two cases of endocarditis secondary to L. goodfellowii sp. nov. Both cases were identified using 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Review of the English literature revealed only two other cases of Leptotrichia sp. endocarditis.
OBJECTIVES To assess the influence of acetyl-salicylic acid (ASA) on clinical outcomes in Staphylococcus aureus infective endocarditis (SA-IE). METHODS The International Collaboration on Endocarditis - Prospective Cohort Study database was used in this observational study. Multivariable analysis of the SA-IE cohort compared outcomes in patients with and(More)
Blood chemical parameters were analyzed by Fourier-transform infrared spectrometry (notably for determining the concentrations of glucose, lactate, urea, glycerol, triglycerides, and proteins) in 14 top-class marathon runners (133.7+/-4.1 min at marathon, 10.1% difference between extremes) who performed a 10-km run at their individual marathon velocity.(More)
AIM To assess the late cardioprotective effect of dexrazoxane associated with doxorubicin during treatment of osteosarcoma by means of low-dose dobutamine stress echocardiography (LDDSE) in non-relapsed asymptomatic children and teenagers. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study population included 58 patients with osteosarcoma divided in three groups, with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate left ventricular (LV) systolic function by means of echocardiography in patients with osteosarcoma treated with doxorubicin alone or in combination with dexrazoxane. METHODS The study analyzed 55 patients with osteosarcoma, with or without metastasis, undergoing a six-cycle chemotherapy regimen of doxorubicin, who were divided into(More)
BACKGROUND Myocardial performance index (MPI) has been used to assess global ventricular function in different types of cardiac disease. Thyroid hormones influence cardiac performance directly and indirectly by changes in peripheral circulation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible effect of central hypothyroidism (CH) on MPI. METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND Dobutamine-atropine stress echocardiography (DASE) is a safe and accurate method to diagnose coronary artery disease (CAD), and can identify individuals at high risk for cardiac events such as myocardial infarction and cardiac-related death. The literature is limited regarding the prognostic value of DASE in women. OBJECTIVE The objective was(More)
9536 Background: To evaluate whether clinical signs or symptoms of congestive heart failure, serial assessment of systolic and diastolic cardiac function by low dose dobutamine stress echo (LDSE) and serum cardiac troponin T (cTnT) can predict doxorubicin (DOXO) cardiotoxicity. METHODS Twenty five patients with osteosarcoma enrolled in the Brazilian(More)
197 Background: In a previous randomized trial (SWOG 0012), MC seemed to improve pCR rates compared to standard anthracycline/taxane neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NC). We aimed to evaluate the feasibility of MC with a taxane→anthracycline schedule, which has also been shown potentially superior to the reverse sequence [J Clin Oncol 28:15s, 2010 (suppl; abstr(More)
