While the antiarrhythmic effects of amiodarone are well-documented, its hemodynamic effects are not. We injected 5 mg/kg amiodarone i.v. in 16 patients undergoing coronary arteriography. Heart rate did not change. Aortic (systolic, diastolic and mean) and left ventricular (systolic and end-diastolic) pressures decreased significantly (p less than 0.01) at 5(More)

The goal of this study was to establish how increased ventilation modifies postural stability, as characterized by body sway and leg muscle activities. Twelve healthy subjects had to perform six 30-second postural tests: one pre-exercise test while breathing gently and then one test every minute for the five minutes immediately following a(More)

We report a case of primary malignant melanoma of the cerebellopontine angle. This tumour showed RMI features that were totally different from those reported for secondary melanomas, and therefore its nature could not be suspected before surgery. Intracranial primary melanomas are so rare that no other published case is available for comparison, and our(More)
