This study was designed to evaluate the aphrodisiac and spermatogenic potential of the aqueous extract of dried roots of Chlorophytum borivilianum (CB) in rats. Male Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups. Rats were orally treated with (1) CONTROL GROUP: distilled water; (2) CB 125 mg/kg/day; (3) CB 250 mg/kg/day; and (4) Viagra((R)) group: 4(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been shown to modulate atrial electrophysiology and confer protection against ischemia and ventricular arrhythmias in animal models. OBJECTIVE To determine whether SCS reduces the susceptibility to atrial fibrillation (AF) induced by tachypacing (TP). METHODS In 21 canines, upper thoracic SCS systems and(More)
INTRODUCTION We investigated trends in intrathoracic impedance measured between multiple implanted electrodes for monitoring pulmonary edema secondary to congestive heart failure (CHF) in an experimental model. METHODS Biventricular ICDs were implanted in 16 dogs and 5 sheep. Continuous RV pacing (230- 250 bpm) was applied over several weeks. Meanwhile,(More)
BACKGROUND This is a comparative effectiveness study for cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) therapy enabled by quadripolar (QUAD) versus bipolar (BIP) left ventricular (LV) leads.  Heart failure (HF) hospitalization (HFH) rates, associated costs, and 30-day readmissions after index HFH were compared. METHODS Patients with de novo LV(More)
Although higher detection rates and delayed detection improve survival in implantable cardioverter defibrillator clinical trials, their effectiveness in clinical practice has limited validation. To evaluate the effectiveness of programming strategies for reducing shocks and mortality, we conducted a nationwide assessment of patients with implantable(More)
