OBJECTIVES We aimed to predict the high-risk plaque of distal embolization after stent deployment in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) with Virtual Histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS) (Volcano Therapeutics, Inc., Rancho Cordova, California). BACKGROUND Distal embolization during primary percutaneous coronary(More)
Although several branching patterns of pulmonary veins (PVs) were reported, their prevalence and characterization were not sufficiently clarified. Multislice computed tomography was performed in 428 patients who underwent catheter ablation for drug-refractory atrial fibrillation. Size and branching pattern of PVs were analyzed. A typical pattern of 4 PVs(More)
To determine the effect of an HIV-1 counselling programme on rates of HIV-1 infection and pregnancy in a large group of married couples in Kinshasa, DRC with discordant HIV-1 infection status, we conducted a baseline cross-sectional HIV-1 seroprevalence study in two large Kinshasa businesses.

When Plasmodium falciparum parasites were stained with the fluorescent dye ethidium bromide, the fluorescence intensity of the solubilized parasites was correlated with the amount of nucleic acid present. It was possible to monitor development of the parasites from ring form to schizont by the fluoroassay. The assay system was applied to in vitro drug(More)
BACKGROUND The Democratic Republic of Congo has been experiencing a critical economic situation for several years, resulting in a favorable context for the spread of HIV-infection.
