Plasma concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD), 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25-(OH)2D), and 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (24,25-(OH)2D) were determined in 17 children with vitamin D deficiency rickets before therapy was started. Thirteen of them also had these tests repeated during treatment. The median 25-OHD concentration was at the lower limit of the(More)
Eleven patients concomitantly poisoned with methanol are described. Their whole blood methanol concentration ranged from 137.2 mmol/l (4.39 g/l) to 7.4 mmol/l (0.24 g/l). The clinical course in most patients was mild, which was attributed to the concomitant and subsequent ethanol ingestion and rapid transport to dialysing units. One patient suffered(More)
AIMS Multiple trials in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) compared early routine percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) after successful fibrinolysis vs. standard therapy limiting PCI only to patients without evidence of reperfusion (rescue PCI). These trials suggest that all patients receiving fibrinolysis should receive(More)
OBJECTIVES The evaluation of infarct size and left ventricular function after acute myocardial infarction is important for predicting the subsequent clinical course. This assessment can be achieved by non-invasive imaging methods, but biochemical assays are frequently used as an alternative. We investigated the ability of a single measurement of cardiac(More)
AIMS We aimed to compare two-dimensional global longitudinal strain (GS) with different non-invasive imaging modalities for the assessment of left ventricular function in an ST-elevation myocardial infarction population. METHODS AND RESULTS GS was compared with ejection fraction (EF) determined by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), standard(More)
UNLABELLED The NORwegian study on DIstrict treatment of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction showed an improved clinical outcome with early transfer for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) compared to a more conservative approach after thrombolysis. The aim of this substudy was to compare the 12-month quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) and costs of(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to compare a strategy of immediate transfer for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with an ischemia-guided approach after thrombolysis in patients with very long transfer distances to PCI. BACKGROUND Thrombolysis remains the treatment of choice in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) when primary(More)
