BACKGROUND The warm-up phenomenon has been considered to trigger preconditioning. We investigated whether repeated exercise treadmill tests in humans are capable of inducing adaptation to ischemia by triggering both the early and late phase of preconditioning. METHODS In 25 consecutive patients with stable coronary artery disease, four repeated treadmill(More)
To elucidate possible causes of recurrences after transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), we performed an anatomical study of the prostate in 37 cadavers. The anatomical study showed that a significant proportion of the prostatic adenoma laid below the verumontanum. This proportion in relation to the total prostatic length varied from 8.33 to(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed at evaluating the combined use of heart rate variability (HRV), baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), and MIBG imaging in the risk stratification for sudden cardiac death (SCD) of patients with mild to moderate heart failure. METHODS Twenty-five patients (17 male and 8 female, mean age 63 +/- 5 years, mean LVEF 36 +/- 3%) with a recently(More)
In this work, we present a promising and emerging energy supply chain type based on decentralized energy generation through domestic microgeneration using micro combined heat and power generators, which produce electricity as well as heat. In particular, several of those microgenerators are connected so as to form a residential energy micro-grid. By(More)
This work summarises the research and technological achievements of the EC funded research project OPT-ABSO. The major innovation of the present project is the development of a fully integrated set of modelling, simulation, and optimisation methodologies, and computer-aided tools for the design, synthesis, control, and efficient operation of sustainable(More)
Fuel Cell power systems have important potential for many applications, both stationary and mobile, due to their outstanding energy efficiency and environmental characteristics [2]. In particular, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems emerge as one of the most commercially widespread technologies, together with Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cells (PEMFC),(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the spectrum of fetal cardiac defects associated with abnormal sonographic findings in the area behind the heart (ABTH) in the four-chamber view. METHODS This study included a retrospective review of 393 fetuses with congenital heart defects (CHD) detected in 2003-2005 at our tertiary referral center and a prospective evaluation of(More)
A remarkable phenomenon of dense Boops boops shoals appearing almost adjacent to the shoreline during nighttime is known to the locals of island communities of the Aegean Sea (eastern Mediterranean). In this work, we investigated this appearance testing the hypotheses that (a) it may occur only in anthropogenically modified locations (as suggested by(More)
