BACKGROUND Respiratory system development is regulated by a complex series of endoderm-mesoderm interactions that are not fully understood. Recently Xenopus has emerged as an alternative model to investigate early respiratory system development, but the extent to which the morphogenesis and molecular pathways involved are conserved between Xenopus and(More)
A case of an acute aortic dissection (AAD) has been reported in a 61-year-old woman, in whom, by the mono and two-dimensional echocardiography (M and 2D E) the authors have detected: 1) The disconnection between the intima and adventitia. 2) A flap of the intima in the aortic cavity. The authors emphasize the usefulness of the M and 2D E because it permits:(More)
In spite of the current availability of new and more up-to-date methods of prevention, diagnosis and therapy, specific forms in general and the ability to perform rapid, efficacious and resolutory operations, a number of cases of subprimary or secondary tuberculosis still exist which are most probably the result of delayed diagnosis, contagious episodes or(More)
In this study the authors evaluate the potentiality of two-dimensional echocardiography to detect the left ventricular thrombus in the myocardial infarction. The authors emphasize the morphological echocardiographic patterns suggestive of the high embolic risk of the ventricular thrombus.
The H3L histone variant gene in Paracentrotus lividus (sea urchin) shows almost all typical features of the replication-dependent histone genes, but it codes for the H3.3 histone protein with the S.//. A.IG amino acid motif, which is typical of the variants synthesized in a replication-independent manner. “H3L-like” histone genes have been found in several(More)
The authors report six cases of left atrial thrombosis with mitral rheumatic stenosis and atrial fibrillation (AF). They analyse the diagnostical possibility of two-dimensional echocardiography (2D-E) and doppler in clinical study of left atrial thrombosis (LAT) for a correct and tempestive medical and/or cardio-surgical indication.
After a review of the literature on myocardial involvement (MI) in Duchenne's progressive muscular dystrophy (DMD), the authors report a case with an extensive MI. This severe myocardial functional impairment is a poor index in the prognosis of DMD. The authors emphasize the use of echocardiography in the screening of MI in DMD.
The authors report a case of Infective Endocarditis (IE) to emphasize the most characteristic echocardiographic features that permit to detect the tricuspid valve involvement in IE, the management of the medica and/or surgical therapy of this disease and the limitations of this noninvasive technique.
