Patients with coronary artery disease may not manifest ST segment depression during exercise. Inadequate stress, mild coronary artery disease and severe left ventricular dysfunction have been postulated as mechanisms. The purpose of this study was to determine the influence of exercise R wave amplitude on ST segment depression in 81 patients with coronary(More)
The prognostic implications of changes in ventricular ectopic activity on serial 24 hour ambulatory electrocardiographic (Holter) recordings were prospectively evaluated in 107 patients with a history of sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmias treated with amiodarone for at least 30 days. Twenty-seven patients (25%) had insufficient ventricular ectopic(More)
To determine whether failure of procainamide to prevent initiation of ventricular tachyarrhythmias during electrophysiologic testing predicted failure of other antiarrhythmic regimens, 81 consecutive patients with coronary artery disease whose ventricular tachyarrhythmias remained inducible during procainamide administration were studied. Overall, 26 (12%)(More)
Treatments of the Holocaust in imaginative literature share and pose a fundamental dilemma: how to assimilate the unimaginable into the imagination; how to find a language commensurate with the enormity of events that transpired in the Shoah. That these are difficulties to be reckoned with has become an axiomatic tenet of criticism dealing with literary(More)
The relation between plasma norepinephrine levels and the occurrence of ventricular tachycardia during exercise testing was prospectively evaluated in 17 patients. Ten patients had reproducible ventricular tachycardia exclusively during exercise or recovery, or both; 7 patients had ventricular tachycardia only during ambulatory electrocardiographic(More)
Nonsustained ventricular tachycardia, although usually asymptomatic, is associated with a high risk of sudden cardiac death in patients with depressed left ventricular function. To test the vulnerability of such patients to symptomatic and potentially life-threatening arrhythmias, complete electrophysiologic studies were performed in 58 patients with(More)
In the elderly, short asymptomatic episodes of syncope may be caused by many disorders. Therefore, it is essential to obtain ECG evidence of sinus node dysfunction before beginning treatment. Treatment of extrinsic causes of sinus node dysfunction may require removal of a suppressive agent. Medications to suspect include beta blockers, antiarrhythmic drugs,(More)
Only a small portion of the poems in Dan Pagis' collection, Gilgul, are set aside distinctly as Holocaust poems. Seven short poems, grouped together under the heading "Qiiron /:Iii tum," and the longer piece, "cA qefJot," refer with clarity to events of the so Ji'ih. Yet certain basic concerns-above all an attention to entrapment and flight, captivity and(More)
The efficacy of combination therapy using a type IA agent (quinidine or procainamide) and a type IB agent (mexiletine) in suppressing inducible sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmias was studied in 23 patients undergoing serial drug testing with programmed stimulation. All patients had coronary artery disease (CAD) with previous myocardial infarction and(More)
Openings in fiction have received increasing attention lately from critics concerned both with narrative theory and the explication of specific texts. In his story, "A Poet's Continuing Silence," A. B. Yehoshua provides a series of opening signals that command special interest, since the text focuses directly on beginnings and attempted new beginnings in(More)
