The “ECG variability contour” (EVC) method was studied with real life rest ECG. Three 1-min long, 12-lead, rest ECG formed the data sets. Mean ECG complex was calculated for each data set, and subtracted from it and the other 2 data sets, forming 9 residue matrices. Residue matrix variables were: (1) EVC reflecting ECG variability (2) normalized cumulative(More)
BACKGROUND No increased mortality has been reported in patients with thyroid papillary microcarcinoma (PMC); however, neck recurrences and distant metastases have been described. In this study, we compare patients' outcomes after total thyroidectomy vs hemithyroidectomy for treatment of thyroid PMC. METHODS Two hundred and ninety-three patients from two(More)
We investigated the effectiveness of lanreotide for the treatment of active acromegaly in a retrospectively multicenter case series including 53 patients (24 male, 29 female; mean age at diagnosis, 49.5 ± 13.9 years) with acromegaly treated with lanreotide in nine different centers. Mean tumor diameter was 20 ± 13 mm; mean basal levels of growth hormone(More)
The effect of dipyridamole (Dp) on the linear portion of the first major deflection of the QRS in human electrocardiograms (which we refer to as Fslope) was investigated in the context of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), in normal subjects (NS, n=19) and in patients with cardiovascular ischemia (as manifested by a positive MPI scan, n=53). In the(More)
To detect and quantify consistent ECG amplitude changes, the “ECG variability contour” (EVC) method was proposed. Using this method we investigated amplitude changes in subjects undergoing myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with Dipyridamole (Dp). Fifty-three patients having reversible perfusion defects and 19 normal subjects (NS) who were free of:(More)
