BACKGROUND The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) have developed guidelines for perioperative assessment of patients in case of non-cardiac surgery. The aim of this study was to investigate if the preoperative cardiac evaluation of geriatric patients with hip fracture was in accordance with these guidelines and(More)
In the title compound, [Cu(SO(4))(C(2)H(8)N(2))(2)](n), the Cu, S and two O atoms lie on a mirror plane. The Cu atom is in a distorted octa-hedral environment and the ethyl-enediamine ligand is in a gauche conformation. The sulfate dianion is bridging, forming a one-dimensional chain. A two-dimensional net parallel to (001) is generated by N-H⋯O hydrogen(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with exercise-induced lower leg pain may suffer from deep posterior chronic exertional compartment syndrome (dp-CECS). Current evidence for the efficacy of surgery is based on retrospective studies. Effects of fasciotomy on symptoms associated with dp-CECS have not been systematically studied, and reasons for unsuccessful surgery are(More)
The crystal structure of the title compound, [Zn{CO(NH(2))(2)}(6)](NO(3))(2), has been determined at 110 and 250 K. The structure is stabilized by 12 individual hydrogen bonds, both intra- and intermolecular. Analysis of the thermal expansion tensor, based on unit cells determined over a temperature range of 180 K, shows uniaxial compression in the(More)
The crystal structures of the title compounds have been determined in the temperature range 140-290 K for the zinc complex, and 190-270 K for the copper complex. The two structures are isostructural in the trigonal space group P31c with the sulfate anion severely disordered on a site with 32 (D(3)) symmetry. This sulfate disorder leads to a disordered(More)
