While cannabinoid receptor agonists have analgesic activity in chronic pain states, they produce a spectrum of central CB(1) receptor-mediated motor and psychotropic side effects. The actions of endocannabinoids, such as anandamide are terminated by removal from the extracellular space, then subsequent enzymatic degradation by fatty-acid amide hydrolase(More)
Extracardiac anomalies (ECA) occur in 25% of infants seen during the first year of life for significant cardiac disease. Often the ECA are multiple and one third of the affected infants have some established syndrome. In infants with endocardial cushion defect, patent ductus arteriosus, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, malpositions,(More)
1. Although cannabinoid receptor agonists have analgesic activity in chronic pain states, they produce a spectrum of central cannabinoid CB(1) receptor-mediated motor and psychotropic side-effects. The actions of endocannabinoids, such as anandamide, are terminated by uptake and subsequent intracellular enzymatic degradation. In the present study, we(More)
The course and prognosis of 16 infants and children with sick sinus syndrome associated with cardiac surgery is reviewed. The dysrhythmia was observed most ofter after extensive atrial reconstructive surgery in patients with transposition of the great arteries and with atrial septal defect. In 12 (75%) of the patients, sick sinus syndrome was detected in(More)
Peripheral pulmonary stenosis with or without intracardiac disease is described in 14 patients with intrahepatic biliary dysgenesis. Cardiovascular malformations were not present among a large group of patients with extrahepatic biliary dysgenesis. This association of intrahepatic biliary dysgenesis and vascular malformations is postulated to be a specific(More)
There was 230 patients with heart disease among 369 infants and children with Down's syndrome. The majority exhibited defects of the endocardial cushion variety and approximately one quarte had complete atrioventricular canals (CAVC). Pulmonary artery hypertension was uniform in catheterized patients in this latter group and frequent in all left-to-right(More)
A total of 161 infants and children, ranging in age from 1 day to 17 years at initial encounter (mean, 3.7 years), was seen over a 30 year period with primary myocardial disease (idiopathic myocarditis, nonobstructive cardiomyopathy, endocardial fibroelastosis, and an anatomically unknown category). These patients were observed from 1 hour to 23 years after(More)
Since its 1947 founding, ETS has conducted and disseminated scientific research to support its products and services, and to advance the measurement and education fields. In keeping with these goals, ETS is committed to making its research freely available to the professional community and to the general public. Published accounts of ETS research, including(More)
