A sterile inflammation in the cavernous sinus was hypothesized to underlie cluster headache (CH). Neurogenic inflammation is accompanied by the extravasation of plasma proteins in the surrounding tissue. We tested the hypothesis of an inflammatory process in the cavernous sinus in CH patients using 99mTc-human serum albumin (HSA) and single photon emission(More)
A sixty-year-old man with previous history of coronary artery disease was admitted due to progressive worsening of dyspnoea at exertion (NYHA III functional class) and no angina. Coronary angiography confirmed occlusion of the right coronary artery which was naturally bypassed by homocollaterals with TIMI 3 flow to the peripheral branches. The lesion was(More)
PURPOSE This study assessed the effect of different levels of tracer uptake in the infarcted area on improvement of left ventricular function in patients treated by intracoronary mononuclear bone marrow cell (BMC) transplantation during long-term (12-month) follow-up. METHODS Thirty-seven patients with irreversible injury after their first acute(More)
Patients with diabetes mellitus are excessively vulnerable to myocardial ischemia and often suffer from autonomic cardiac dysfunction. They are also known to have specific capillary pathology and abnormalities of substances essential for the neoangiogenic cascade. These background data led us to the hypothesis that the severity of ischemic heart disease in(More)
BACKGROUND Rupture of a papillary muscle is an infrequent but often fatal mechanical complication of acute myocardial infarction. AIM The aim of this paper is to present a case report of a 65-year old women with acute severe mitral regurgitation with cardiogenic shock caused by two-step complete anterior papillary muscle rupture during acute myocardial(More)
