BACKGROUND Patients with atrial switch (Mustard or Senning) repair of D-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA) are at increased risk for atrial arrhythmias, systemic right ventricular (RV) dysfunction and late mortality. OBJECTIVES To evaluate case series from a single-centre experience with beta-blocker use in adult, post atrial switch, simple D-TGA(More)
Midurethral slings are an effective and minimally invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence. One of the most common intraoperative complications is bladder perforation, complicating between 2 and 10 % of all operations, and on average 4.7 %. It is usually corrected during surgery, with repositioning of the trocars. The purpose of this video is to(More)
We describe a case of cytomegalovirus-induced pancytopenia in a heart transplant patient. The interesting finding of a hypercellular bone marrow indicates the possibility of a different mechanism for the pancytopenia other than bone marrow suppression. The patient was treated with ganciclovir, which resulted in the complete resolution of the viremia and(More)
Objective: In patients at risk of aspiration pneumonia due to gastroesophageal reflux who require gastrojejunostomy feeding tubes, the tubes are placed either radiologically (RIGJ) or endoscopically (PEGJ). There is little published evidence of the superiority of one technique over the other. Methods: Patients referred for long-term jejunal feeding were(More)
Bladder neck and urethral closure with urinary diversion is offered as a last resort to patients with intractable urinary incontinence. Various techniques have been described to achieve bladder neck and urethral closure. Most of these are associated with either operative morbidity or long-term complications. A modification of the conventional tension-free(More)
Perovskite-related compounds of composition SrFe(1-x)Sn(x)O(3-δ) (x = 0.31, 0.54) have been prepared. X-ray powder diffraction shows that the materials adopt orthorhombic unit cells. The lattice parameters increase with the incorporation of increasing amounts of tin, which is shown by x-ray absorption near edge structure investigation to be present as(More)
A 53-year-old woman presented with unstable coronary artery disease and severe peripheral vascular disease that prevented brachial, axillary, and femoral access for coronary angiography. Intensive medical management failed with ongoing angina, dynamic ECG changes, hemodynamic instability, and biochemical evidence of reinfarction. Coronary artery bypass(More)
