UNLABELLED The northeast Nile Delta region exhibits a high incidence of early-onset pancreatic cancer. It is well documented that this region has one of the highest levels of pollution in Egypt. Epidemiologic studies have suggested that cadmium, a prevalent pollutant in the northeast Nile Delta region, plays a role in the development of pancreatic cancer.(More)
BACKGROUND Comparative assessment of clinical outcomes after use of drug-eluting stents versus bare-metal stents for treatment of aortocoronary saphenous vein graft lesions has not been undertaken in large randomised trials. We aimed to undertake a comparison in a randomised trial powered for clinical endpoints. METHODS In this randomised superiority(More)
A village in the Nile surveyed for schistosomiasis by J. A. Scott in 1935 was surveyed again in 1979. The same number of people as in the 1935 survey were randomly selected for investigation by the same parasitological techniques as those used by Scott. The prevalence of Schistosoma mansoni infection had increased from 3.2% to 73%, whereas S. haematobium(More)
We report a case of a 65-year-old female patient treated with an everolimus-eluting bioresorbable scaffold (BRS) after rotational atherectomy of a severely calcified lesion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. The implanted BRS restenosed 10 months after implantation and was treated with a scoring balloon followed by drug-eluting balloons with(More)
In patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and multi-vessel disease (MVD), the optimal therapy for non-culprit lesions is still a matter of debate. While guidelines discourage a concomitant treatment of infarct- and non-infarct-related arteries, recent studies document advantages of a complete (preventive)(More)
INTRODUCTION Limited data exist on the outcomes after left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) with the Amplatzer™ Cardiac Plug (ACP; St. Jude Medical, Minneapolis, MN, USA) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) with very high stroke and bleeding risks, the subset expected to benefit most from this procedure. The objective of this study was to report(More)
The optimal treatment approach for coronary intramural hematomas has not been well defined, and discussion is limited to scarce data. In addition, the impact of prior thrombolytic therapy in the setting of coronary artery dissections with possible development and/or extension of an intramural hematoma is not well understood. We describe a case of iatrogenic(More)
