B-cell high-grade lymphomas are heterogeneous in terms of histology, clinical presentation, treatment response and prognosis. As bcl-2 and p53 gene deregulations are frequently involved in several types of lymphoid malignancies, we aimed our investigation at the study of the relation between bcl-2 and p53 expression and survival probability in a group of(More)
AIMS The parasympathetic nervous system is thought to play a key role in atrial fibrillation (AF). Since parasympathetic signalling is primarily mediated by the heterotrimeric G-protein, Galpha(i)betagamma, we hypothesized that targeted inhibition of Galpha(i) interactions in the posterior left atrium (PLA) would modify the substrate for vagal AF. METHODS(More)
The objective of the study was to investigate the morphology, distribution, and electrophysiological profile of the autonomic fibers that innervate the ligament of Marshall (LOM). Gross anatomical dissections were performed in 10 dogs. Sections of the left vagus nerve, left stellate ganglion, and the LOM were immunostained to identify adrenergic and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to assess the trends in the use of ECV following published studies that had compared rhythm and rate control strategies on atrial fibrillation (AF), and the recommendations included in the current clinical practice guidelines. METHODS The REVERCAT is a population-based assessment of the use of electrical(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a frequent cause of sudden death. Clinical practice guidelines indicate defibrillator implantation for primary prevention in patients with 1 or more risk factors and for secondary prevention in patients with a history of aborted sudden death or sustained ventricular arrhythmias. The aim of the(More)
