A newly developed ELISA was used to detect and quantify the presence of a soluble form of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) in the circulation of healthy individuals compared with patients with psoriasis vulgaris. Seventeen psoriatic patients were studied. The extent of skin lesions was rated by the psoriasis area and severity index (PASI).(More)
We showed that nitric oxide (NO) signaling is decreased in the pulmonary vasculature before the development of endothelial dysfunction in a lamb model of congenital heart disease and increased pulmonary blood flow (Shunt). The elucidation of the molecular mechanism by which this occurs was the purpose of this study. Here, we demonstrate that concentrations(More)
Aims It is commonly believed that pulmonary regurgitation (PR) after surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) leads to progressive right ventricular (RV) enlargement. However, progressive RV dilatation has never clearly been documented in this patient population. Therefore, we studied the size of the RV over time in patients after surgical TOF repair.(More)
PURPOSE To compare the quantification of pulmonary stroke volume (SV) by phase contrast magnetic resonance (PC-MR) in the main pulmonary artery (MPA) to the sum of SVs in both peripheral pulmonary arteries (PPA) in different right ventricular (RV) outflow pathologies. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pulmonary SV was determined by PC-MR in the MPA and the PPA in(More)
