Bilateral idiopathic diaphragmatic paralysis (BIDP) may result in progressive ventilatory failure. To test the hypothesis that this is in part due to dysfunction of overtaxed inspiratory muscles, we studied 3 patients with BIDP before and after 2, 5, and 18 wk of daily intermittent external surface negative pressure ventilation (ENPV). The patients were(More)
The F2/3 antigenic fraction isolated from Trypanosoma cruzi trypomastigotes contains epitopes recognised by antibodies which are representative of active infection. The kinetics of disappearance of conventional serology (CS) and anti-F2/3 antibodies were compared in 21 patients with congenital Chagas disease after receiving benznidazole treatment. Patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this real-world study was to evaluate the effect of agomelatine on anhedonia as primary endpoint in outpatients under treatment of major depressive episodes. METHODS The study was an open-label, multicenter, 8-week phase IV trial. Two hundred fifty-seven (257) patients were recruited, and 143 patients were included in the analysis.(More)
Objective: To correlate visceral fat using bioelectrical impedance analysis (Dual BIA) with computed tomography (CT) in Grade I-II Obese Mexican Patients. Research Design and Methods: We recruited 30 Mexican patients from the western part of the country (15 men and 15 women, aged 50-65 years) with class I-II obesity (body mass index [BMI] 30-39.9 Kg/m2). To(More)
Transudative pleural effusion developed after plasmapheresis in a patient with Waldenström's macroglobulinemia and hyperviscosity. When albumin was added to the apheresis, the effusion resolved. We therefore suspect that rapid removal of high-molecular-weight IgM led to an abrupt decrease in intravascular colloid oncotic pressure and transudation of fluid(More)
