Gorham-Stout syndrome is a rare disorder that leads to extensive lymphangiomatosis in bones with resorption of adjacent bone matrix. As a result, the disease is also known as massive osteolysis or “vanishing bone disease.” Although the disease primarily occurs in bone, it may also involve adjacent soft tissues. We report a case of Gorham-Stout syndrome(More)
The pyrimidine base, orotic acid (OA), markedly improves the function of recently infarcted hearts subjected to global ischemia. The mechanism of cardiac action of OA is unclear, but it has been proposed that OA acts by correcting a relative deficiency of nucleotide precursors required for RNA synthesis in the stressed myocardium or by improving myocardial(More)

BACKGROUND Constrictive pericarditis is an uncommon condition that could be easily confused with congestive heart failure. In symptomatic patients, septal "wobble" on echocardiography may be an important sign of constrictive physiology. This study was planned to investigate the effects of constriction on septal motion as identified by echocardiography. (More)
