Background: Although much has been written about the results and patient satisfaction with fundoplication for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, the reports have focused primarily on surgical successes. With the growing number of fundoplications being performed, more patients are requiring reoperation because of recurrent symptoms or side(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The ORBIT I trial, a first-in-man study, was conducted to evaluate the safety and performance of the orbital atherectomy system (OAS) in treating de novo calcified coronary lesions. METHODS/MATERIALS Fifty patients were enrolled between May and July 2008 based on several criteria, and were treated with the OAS followed by stent(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclic nucleotide Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) are ubiquitously distributed in mammalian tissues and play a major role in cell signaling by hydrolyzing cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate (cAMP) and cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (cGMP). Impairments in signal transduction have been implicated as possible mechanism of reduced plasticity and neuronal(More)
Although coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a component of the oxidative phosphorylation process in mitochondria that converts the energy in carbohydrates and fatty acids into ATP to drive cellular machinery and synthesis, its effect in type I diabetes is not clear. We have studied the effect of 4 wk of treatment with CoQ10 (10 mg/kg, ip, daily) in streptozotocin(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The prediction of prognosis in HGGs is poor in the majority of patients. Our aim was to test whether multivariate prediction models constructed by machine-learning methods provide a more accurate predictor of prognosis in HGGs than histopathologic classification. The prediction of survival was based on DTI and rCBV measurements as an(More)
Modifications of the Physiologic Stability Index (PSI) and Therapeutic Intervention Scoring System (TISS) were used to evaluate the physiologic stability and need for therapeutic intervention in 55 infants hospitalized in the newborn ICU. After modifying the PSI to reflect neonatal physiology, we found that PSI scores correlated significantly with TISS(More)
Epidemiologic and clinical research suggests important gender-related differences in the prevalence, presentation, associated conventional and non-conventional risk factors, management and outcomes of coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. Adequate data is not available for Indian population where prevalence of CHD and depression is high. We conducted an(More)
The present study was undertaken to investigate the effectiveness of adrenergic antagonists carvedilol and propranolol on L-thyroxin-induced cardiovascular and metabolic disturbances in rats. Treatment with L-thyroxin sodium (75 mg/kg body mass, s.c., every alternate day for 3 weeks), produced a significant increase in food and water intake, body(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association between altered thyroid hormones and insulin resistance (IR). MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight euthyroid (EU), eight hypothyroid (HO), and eight hyperthyroid (HR) patients with no past medical history were studied in this cross-sectional study at the Care Institute of Medical Sciences, Ahmedabad, India, The fasting blood(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The ORBIT I trial evaluated the safety and performance of an orbital atherectomy system (OAS) in treating de novo calcified coronary lesions. Severely calcified coronary arteries pose ongoing treatment challenges. Stent placement in calcified lesions can result in stent under expansion, malapposition and procedural complications. OAS(More)
