In this paper, we propose to use the features based on power spectral density as a descriptor of the EEG in the compression of the long-term intensive care unit EEG to obtain the temporal evolution of the recurrent patterns. Sleep EEG is used as a baseline since the sleep stages can be mapped to recurrent patterns in the background EEG. Our results indicate(More)
UNLABELLED Background and Objective Although transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defect is emerging as an accepted, viable alternative, conduction disturbances still remain a major concern. Although steroid treatment has shown encouraging results with complete recovery, efficacy of prophylactic use of steroids is still speculative. We(More)
Recurrent or residual right ventricular outflow tract obstruction after early surgical repair of congenital heart disease is one of the most frequent indications for either surgical or transcatheter reintervention. Transcatheter stent implantation across the stenotic right ventricular outflow tract or conduit is a safe and effective alternative to surgical(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter closure of coronary artery fistula has emerged as a safe and effective alternative to surgery. However, follow-up angiographic data after closure of the coronary artery fistula is extremely limited. We report our clinical and angiographic follow-up of children who underwent either transcatheter or surgical closure. METHOD Clinical(More)
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a relatively common life-threatening cardiovascular condition associated with significant morbidity and mortality. We present the efficacy and safety data of weight-adjusted tenecteplase in 30 consecutive patients of acute PE. 30 patients (22 male, 8 female) with acute PE were included in the study and divided into three groups:(More)
Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm is a rare but serious complication of acute myocardial infarction and cardiac surgery. While surgical intervention is the conventional therapeutic option, transcatheter closure can be considered in selected patients with suitable morphology of the pseudoaneurysm. We report a case of successful transcatheter closure of a left(More)
Transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) using various occluders and coils via femoral vein is a well established therapeutic option. However, in patients with interrupted inferior vena cava (IVC) it is not feasible to close the PDA percutaneously using traditional methods. We present a nine-year-old girl with IVC interruption in whom(More)
With touch-based interfaces becoming commonplace on personal computing devices ranging from phones and slates to notebook and desktop PCs, a number of common tasks that were once performed using mouse or keyboard input now need to be performed using fingers on the touch surface. Finger-drawn gestures offer a viable alternative to desktop and keyboard(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to study the feasibility and outcomes of ductal stenting in patients with duct-dependent pulmonary blood flow (PBF). METHODS Duct-dependent hypoxic patients with confluent pulmonary artery (PA) branches were enrolled for ductal stenting and followed regularly. RESULTS Sixty patients, with a median age of 12 (1-1095) days and weight(More)
