BACKGROUND Coronary revascularization in patients with persistent angina after myocardial infarction reduces the incidence of recurrent angina pectoris and myocardial infarction and improves left ventricular function. The results of revascularization after a Q wave myocardial infarction when there is no residual ischemia may depend on myocardial viability.(More)
Twenty-five patients with severe renal impairment treated by periodical haemodialysis underwent splenectomy (for spleen injury or tuberculosis in 2). All have been on long-term follow-up. At present, 7 patients have not improved; 7 are no longer transfused but remain anaemic with a less than 20% haematocrit; 11 have a more than 20% haematocrit without(More)
212 male prisoners were collected at the prison in March 1983. Anti-HBc and HBs Ag were detected by a combined test (AUSRIA-CORE, Abbott Laboratories). 67 sera (31,5%) were anti-HBc positive, 7 of them HBs Ag positive. Screening for anti-HTLV (anti-p24) was negative for all the donors. Beta 2 microglobulin levels were determined on 115 sera (B2-micro RIA(More)
Early 99Tcm-labelled methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile (MIBI) SPECT was performed in 14 patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The radiopharmaceutical was administered immediately upon admission to the intensive care unit and before any diagnostic confirmation. Then, if decided, thrombolytic therapy was started. Cardiac imaging was performed 1(More)
The feasibility and immediate tolerance of single-lung transplantation were recently demonstrated in patients with severe obstructive lung disease. Since initial reports, hundreds of procedures have been performed worldwide in such patients, but views regarding the results are still controversial. Since few data concerning medium-term functional results are(More)
The detection of coronary disease before valve surgery remains difficult in the absence of coronary arteriography. The contribution of myocardial scintigraphy with dipyridamole (MS-DP) was studied in 34 consecutive patients with valve disease (11 mitral and 23 aortic) with a mean age of 63 +/- 11 years having undergone coronary arteriography before valve(More)
