Selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors are relatively newer anti-inflammatory drugs that produce comparable antiinflammatory and analgesic effects to the nonselective nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); but with fewer symptomatic gastric and duodenal ulcers. Limited data are available concerning the toxicity associated with COX-2 inhibitors(More)
BACKGROUND Electrocardiograms (ECGs) are essential in identifying the type and location of acute myocardial infarction. In the setting of inferior wall myocardial infarction (IWMI), identification of the right coronary artery (RCA) as the culprit artery is important because of the potential complications associated with its involvement. OBJECTIVES To(More)
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Many genetic and environmental risk factors including atherogenic dyslipidemia contribute towards the development of CAD. Functionally relevant mutations in the dyslipidemia-related genes and enzymes involved in the reverse cholesterol transport system are associated with(More)
Wilsonian crisis is fatal unless copper removal is initiated early and liver transplantation is performed for patients that fulfill criteria for a poor outcome. We report a patient presenting with severe hemolysis and impending acute liver failure that made a rapid recovery with prompt initiation of plasmapheresis and chelation therapy. Rapid copper removal(More)
Partial seizures of temporal origin can be associated with clinically significant tachycardia or bradycardia. Ictal bradycardia and asystole has been implicated in the etiology of sudden unexpected death in epileptic patients (SUDEP). Although symptomatic ictal bradycardia has been relatively well described in the literature; information on asymptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND Kinesin-like protein 6 (KIF6), a member of the kinesin superfamily, is involved in intracellular transport. A few prospective studies have shown the KIF6 variant Trp719Arg (rs20455) to be associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) in Caucasian populations. However, recent genome-wide association studies on CAD have not proven these(More)
INTRODUCTION Coronary artery ectasia is an uncommon disease that has been increasingly noticed as the increase in utilization of coronary angiograms. The aim of this study is to characterize coronary artery ectasia in the population of Saudi Arabia. METHODS This is a retrospective study involved all patient with invasive coronary angiogram that was done(More)
Alveolar soft-part sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare soft tissue tumour found in young adults that usually arises in skeletal muscle and occurs most frequently in the lower limbs. Radiological and pathological findings of ASPS in a 34-year-old man who presented with increasing shortness of breath over a period of four to six weeks with peripheral blood eosinophilia,(More)
