BACKGROUND Only a few texture measures can be used for texture characterization of infarcted myocardium and detection of reperfused myocardium early after infarction. This study was conducted to establish the relationship between texture properties of infarcted myocardium and infarct-related artery patency by quantitative computer analysis of 2-dimensional(More)
AIMS This study sought to determine predictors of left ventricular thrombus formation and resolution after acute anterior wall myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS We have analysed clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic data in 53 consecutive patients with anterior myocardial infarction. Two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiographic(More)
BACKGROUND In the era of cytokines, patients with brain metastases (BM) from renal cell carcinoma had a significantly shorter survival than patients without. Targeted agents (TA) have improved the outcome of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) however, their impact on patients with BM is less clear. The aim of this analysis was to compare(More)
Hemodialysis (HD) patients face increased fracture risk, which is further associated with elevated risk of hospitalization and mortality. High-resolution peripheral computed tomography (HR-pQCT) has advanced our understanding of bone disease in chronic kidney disease by characterizing distinct changes in both the cortical and trabecular compartments.(More)
UNLABELLED Neurologic complications after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are rare but poorly understood. We present a case report of a 57-year-old-male patient who was diagnosed in 2009 with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). He received two standard induction chemotherapies, as well as a following consolidation. Six months later, an(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of refractory Hodgkin disease deserves specific considerations. Recently, alemtuzumab-BEAM has been introduced in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in these patients. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the outcome of 20 patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) who received allogeneic HSCT(More)
