Comparison between deferoxamine and deferiprone (L1) in iron‐loaded thalassemia patients
Abstract: Introduction: Iron‐chelating therapy with deferoxamine in patients with thalassemia major has dramatically improved the prognosis of this disease. However, the limitations of this treatmentExpand

Paradoxical Cerebral Embolism with a Patent Foramen ovale
Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is present in 25-30% of the population. Spontaneously, or with activities implying a Valsalva maneuver, a transient right-to-left shunt occurs. This can now be easily diagno

Efficacy and Side Effects of Deferiprone (L1) in Thalassemia Patients Not Compliant with Desferrioxamine
We report our experience with deferiprone (L1) (DFP) in 17 thalassemic patients, followed up in one center in Lebanon, who were initially on desferrioxamine and then shifted to DFP at a dose of 50–75Expand

Five-Year Trial of Deferiprone Chelation Therapy in Thalassaemia major Patients
Twelve thalassaemia major patients have been given deferiprone 75 mg/kg body weight daily as iron chelation therapy for 5 years. Their ages ranged from 18 to 34 years (mean 24.2) at the end of theExpand
