OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to assess the systemic drug release and distribution of sirolimus-eluting coronary stents. METHODS Twenty patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were treated with 1, 2, or 3 a newly designed metallic stents. Blood samples were drawn at 14 time points to determine the pharmacokinetic of sirolimus. Whole blood(More)
The conduction velocity in the efferent fibres of the median nerve has been compared in the right and left forelimbs of 38 human subjects. Six independent estimates were made for each limb. Estimates on the right and left limb of a subject were made at the same sitting. Conduction velocity was faster on the right side in the majority of right handed(More)
Freshly weaned 30-day-old male Wistar rats were fed a vitamin D-deficient diet adequate in calcium and phosphorus for 3 months. On the 120th day of age three different doses of vitamin D were injected intramuscularly into three groups of rats and maintained for another month with water and a normal diet ad libitum. One group was continued with a vitamin(More)

Left ventricular function was evaluated noninvasively in cases of chronic severe anemia (CSA) by recording systolic and diastolic time intervals (STI and DTI). These time intervals were recorded in 38 patients with CSA (hemoglobin below 7 g%), without cardiac decompensation, and in 30 control subjects. STI and DTI were measured from the simultaneous(More)
Accidentally swallowed dentures can lead to severe complications in the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, an early detection and an effective therapeutic management are important. In the era of advanced endoscopy, though the primary treatment of an impacted foreign body in the oesophagus is an endoscopic removal, a primary surgical treatment is advised for(More)

We are reporting a rare case of 12-years-old female child with history of dull intermittent pain, tender palpable mass in left hypochondrium on physical examination. Ultrasonography (USG) of(More)
Circulatory dynamics during the cold pressor test, done by immersing the hand in water at 5 degrees C for one minute, were studied in 30 male healthy volunteers. All the subjects responded to the test with statistically significant increase in blood pressure (22.04%, p less than 0.001), heart rate (11.21%, p less than 0.001), galvanic skin resistance(More)
