BACKGROUND Death from tuberculosis (TB) is the longest recorded indicator of the TB epidemic in industrialised countries. This study aims at investigating into various factors associated with death in hospitalised patients with tuberculosis in Ile-Ife, Nigeria. METHODS A retrospective study of all admissions into the medical wards, total number of deaths(More)
Stroke, a major cause of morbidity and mortality, is on the increase and with increasing mortality. Our retrospective review of all stroke admissions from 1990-2000 show that cerebrovascular disease accounted for 3.6% (293/8144) of all medical admissions; it has a case fatality rate of 45% with the majority (61%) occurring in the first week; the mean age of(More)
Vascular therapy in oncology exploits the differences between normal blood vessels and abnormal tumour neoangiogenesis to selectively target cancer. For optimal treatment efficacy, and translation of novel compounds, the response of the tumour vasculature needs to be assessed. Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) is capable of this as it provides highly spatially(More)
INTRODUCTION Dextrocardia with situs inversus is a rare congenital disease. In patients with this condition, the heart is presented as a mirror image of itself with its apex pointing to the right. The pulmonary and abdominal anatomies are reversed. Dextrocardia with situs inversus occurs at birth but its diagnosis may be in adulthood. This case advances(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a common pathophysiological consequence of hypertension. Various voltage (ECG) criteria exist for evaluation of LVH. This study assessed the performance of 4 commonly used ECG criteria in south-western Nigeria. MATERIALS AND METHODS A cross-sectional descriptive study of adult hypertensive subjects.(More)
The diagnosis of Marked First Degree Atrioventricular Block is made with electrocardiogram when PR interval ≥0.30 s. A PR interval of up to 0.48 s had been reported in literature. Data is sparse on an extremely prolonged PR interval associated with Atrioventricular Dissociation and Pseudo-Pacemaker Syndrome. Electrocardiogram with this type of uncommon(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the mean values of electrocardiographic parameters, and to describe the pattern of electrocardiograms in young adults. METHODS AND RESULTS 353 healthy young adults were evaluated by medical history, physical examination, and standard 12-lead electrocardiogram. The mean heart rate, QRS duration, PR interval, QT(More)
This study assessed healthy young adults to determine the normal limits for electrocardiographic variables and cut-off values for left ventricular hypertrophy. It was a cross sectional descriptive study in which the participants were evaluated clinically by standard 12-lead resting electrocardiogram (ECG) at 25 mm/s during quiet respiration. The heart rate,(More)
