BACKGROUND We aim to deliver large appliances into the left ventricle through the right ventricle and across the interventricular septum. This transthoracic access route exploits immediate recoil of the septum, and lower transmyocardial pressure gradient across the right versus left ventricular free wall. The route may enhance safety and allow subxiphoid(More)
AIMS The urethral retro-resistance pressure (URP) is a new retrograde measurement of urethral function. URP is the pressure required to achieve and maintain an open sphincter. The assessment of any potential diagnostic measure must include an evaluation in individuals both with and without disease. In this study, we examined URP values in women without(More)
AIMS The urethral retro-resistance pressure (URP) is a retrograde urethral pressure profile measured by a new urodynamic measurement system.1GYNECARE MoniTorr Urodynamic Measurement System (ETHICON, Inc., Somerville, NJ). URP is the pressure required to achieve and maintain an open sphincter. This clinical investigation focused on a comparison of URP to(More)
