A 62-year-old white male presented with recurrent pulmonary embolism (PE) despite having an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter. Investigations ruled out upper limb deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and IVC thrombus, the common causes for a PE in the presence of IVC filter. The culprit was double IVC with a persisting left supracardinal vein that allowed an alternate(More)
Classic takotsubo cardiomyopathy had left ventricular apical ballooning. Variants with mid-ventricular ballooning without involvement of the apex have been described. We describe a new variant of takotsubo cardiomyopathy where apical contraction was preserved while the rest of the ventricle was dyskinetic.
INTRODUCTION Manual (bag) ventilation sometimes achieves better oxygenation than does a mechanical ventilator. We speculated that clinicians might generate very high airway pressure during manual ventilation (much higher than the pressure delivered by a mechanical ventilator), and that the high airway pressure causes alveolar recruitment and thus improves(More)
The study reviews causes of urolithiasis and its manifestations in North-West (NW) Libya. Libyan childhood urolithiasis accounted for 3.6% of nephrology out-patient work load. There were 59 children with urolithiasis, including 34 boys and 25 girls with a mean age of 2.8 ± 2.42 years. Urolithiasis was more common among younger age groups (P = 0.001) and in(More)
We report an extremely rare cause of elevated jugular venous pulse where two esoteric causes for the same-cardiac volvulus and cardiac herniation have occurred together. Echocardiographic evidence for making the diagnosis of cardiac volvulus--subcostal long axis, subcostal short axis, and suprasternal views--have been presented. Awareness of this(More)
A good control of blood sugar <110 mg/dl, HbA1c <7%, diastolic BP <80 mmHg and systolic BP <140 mmHg, cholesterol <200 mg/dl, triglycerides <150 mg/dl are the best way to set a limit to the progression of diabetic retinopathy. Progression of DR leads finally to blindness! Blindness is visual acuity less than 3/60 with the best possible correction.(More)
