Role of transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography in predicting embolic events in patients with active infective endocarditis involving native cardiac valves.
- S. De Castro, G. Magni, +6 authors N. Pandian
- The American journal of cardiology
- 15 October 1997
Some studies describe an increased risk for emboli in infective endocarditis patients with large (>10 mm) and mobile vegetations. Other studies fail to demonstrate the above relation. Most studies… Expand
Silicone oil in the repair of pediatric complex retinal detachments: a prospective, observational, multicenter study.
OBJECTIVE To report anatomic and visual acuity outcomes, as well as complications, after using 1000-centistoke silicone oil as a retinal tamponade for the treatment of complex retinal detachments in… Expand
Reduction of LDL cholesterol by 25% to 60% in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia by atorvastatin, a new HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor.
- J. W. Nawrocki, S. Weiss, +6 authors D. Black
- Chemistry, Medicine
- Arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, and vascular…
- 1 May 1995
This 6-week, double-blind clinical trial evaluated lipid parameter responses to different dosages of atorvastatin in patients with primary hypercholesterolemia. Atorvastatin is a new… Expand
Modulation of Genetic and Epigenetic Biomarkers of Colorectal Cancer in Humans by Black Raspberries: A Phase I Pilot Study
Purpose: This study evaluated the effects of black raspberries (BRBs) on biomarkers of tumor development in the human colon and rectum including methylation of relevant tumor suppressor genes, cell… Expand
Dynamic three-dimensional echocardiographic assessment of intracardiac blood flow jets.
Transthoracic dynamic 3-dimensional reconstruction of the heart with tissue depiction has been proved to be feasible when using various methods of data acquisition. The same method can theoretically… Expand
The Use of Ultra Wide Field Fluorescein Angiography in Evaluation and Management of Uveitis
Purpose: Uveitis can occur in all segments of the eye and has multiple etiologies, (many of which remain poorly understood). Appropriate diagnosis and subsequent management can depend on elucidation… Expand
Patterns of Periphlebitis in Intermediate Uveitis using Ultra Wide Field Fluorescein Angiography
Intermediate uveitis is a collection of diseases which can be caused by sarcoidosis in approximately fifty percent of patients. We performed a retrospective chart review of 6 patients with… Expand
Three‐Dimensional and Four‐Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiographic Imaging of the Heart and Aorta in Humans Using a Computed Tomographic Imaging Probe
We evaluated the clinical applicability of a prototype tomographic transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) system, which not only provides conventional TEE images but also three‐dimensional tissue… Expand
Simulation of intraoperative visualization of cardiac structures and study of dynamic surgical anatomy with real-time three-dimensional echocardiography.
Most prior efforts of 3-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of echocardiographic images have focused on quantitation of ventricular size and function. The resulting images have been displayed in the… Expand
Clinical, echocardiographic, and hemodynamic evidence of cardiac tamponade caused by large pleural effusions.
- L. M. Kaplan, S. Epstein, S. Schwartz, Q. Cao, N. Pandian
- American journal of respiratory and critical care…
- 1 March 1995
Large pleural effusions are typically associated with dyspnea and potential respiratory compromise. Experimental evidence suggests that with large effusions, increased intrapleural pressure may be… Expand
