OBJECTIVE To investigate the differences in cardiac function and arterial biophysical properties between term-born appropriate for gestational age (AGA) infants and small for gestational age (SGA) infants. Our hypothesis was that adaptation to intrauterine growth restriction induces changes in cardiac and arterial indices. STUDY DESIGN This was a(More)
AIM To compare strain indices between small for gestational age (SGA) infants and asymptomatic appropriate for gestational age (AGA) infants and to ascertain correlations with arterial biophysical properties. METHODS In this prospective observational echocardiographic study, 20 inborn term SGA infants weighing <3rd centile for gestational age were(More)
Existing data suggest subendocardial ischemia in preterm infants with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and alterations in cardiac function after indomethacin administration. This study aimed to explore the evolution of left ventricular function by conventional echocardiography and speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) and to ascertain the interrelationship(More)
gamma-Radiation response of Y. enterocolitica 5692 and 152 was studied at 0 degrees C and at -40 degrees C in phosphate buffer (pH 7.00) as well as in 10% raw meat/salami homogenate. The strains investigated did not differ in their response and were found to be sensitive to gamma-radiation but exhibited a tailing phenomenon in the survival curve. The D10 in(More)
