Impairment of intestinal fat digestion and absorption constitutes one of the principal manifestations of cystic fibrosis of the pancreas (1, 2). It has been reported that in these patients, triglycer-ides of shorter chain fatty acids appear to be more completely absorbed than those containing fatty acids with chain lengths longer than 12 carbon atoms (3,(More)
The atrial fibrillation threshold was measured in 10 anesthetized dogs by delivering a series of impulses directly to the right atrium after infusion of 4.5 ml of 5% glucose per kilogram of body weight, and after 1.5 ml of absolute alcohol per kilogram in 3 ml/kg of 5% glucose. There were no changes in the atrial fibrillation threshold after glucose. The(More)
To define the prevalence, frequency and characteristics of premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) in adults free of recognizable heart disease, we performed 24-hour ambulatory electrocardiography on 101 subjects (51 men and 50 women, mean age 48.8 years) in whom physical examination, chest x-ray, ECG, echocardiogram, maximal exercise stress test, right- and(More)
Thirty-eight of 151 consecutive patients (25 percent) undergoing bypass surgery for morbid obesity had increased serum levels of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG) or both preoperatively. Ten patients had isolated TC elevation, six had isolated TG elevation and 22 had both TC and TG elevation. High density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) levels were(More)
This study is the first attempt to correlate nivocardial oxygen availability by the polaro-graphic method with direct electrocardiographic leads and cinematographic records of muscle contraction during experimental acute coronary branch occlusion and narrowing. The comparative insensitivity and slowness of the epicardial electrocardiogram as an index of(More)
