BACKGROUND Postinfarction ventricular remodeling is associated with lengthening and contractile dysfunction of the remote noninfarcted myocardium. Mechanisms underlying this phenomenon remain unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS We studied serial changes in global left ventricular (LV) structure and function in infarcted (1, 2, 4, and 6 weeks after myocardial(More)
Euglycaemic ketoacidosis is a rare endocrine emergency, which can have disastrous consequences if left undiagnosed. We present the case of a 57 year old man with type 2 diabetes who developed ketoacidosis (DKA) following a myocardial infarction, despite being normoglycaemic, following discontinuation of his insulin infusion in an intensive care setting. The(More)

Mutants obtained after exposure of VSV to ultraviolet light can be grouped by plaque size on primary chick fibroblast monolayers. W+ forms a large plaque on CEF and also plaques with similar eop on HeLa, L and PK cells. The eop on HeLa cells for the small plaque type mutants varied from 0.01 to 0.10. The intermediate plaque size mutants showed a similar eop(More)
