Long QT syndrome with AV Wenckebaching & bundle branch block in a neonate.

Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J 2020 Nov - Dec;20(6):286-289. Epub 2020 Aug 6.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India. Electronic address:

We present a case of 21-day-old neonate brought with history of 3 episodes of syncope. Evaluation revealed congenital long QT syndrome associated with long cycle atypical AV Wenkebaching with a long short cycle sequence related left bundle branch aberrancy. Syncope was attributed to multiple episodes of Torsades de Pointes, necessitating emergency epicardial pacemaker implantation. Read More

Repeated translocation of a gene cassette drives sex-chromosome turnover in strawberries.

PLoS Biol 2018 08 27;16(8):e2006062. Epub 2018 Aug 27.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America.

Turnovers of sex-determining systems represent important diversifying forces across eukaryotes. Shifts in sex chromosomes-but conservation of the master sex-determining genes-characterize distantly related animal lineages. Yet in plants, in which separate sexes have evolved repeatedly and sex chromosomes are typically homomorphic, we do not know whether such translocations drive sex-chromosome turnovers within closely related taxonomic groups.

The QRS Complex: Normal Activation of the Ventricles.

Card Electrophysiol Clin 2017 09 27;9(3):453-460. Epub 2017 Jun 27.

Heart and Vessels Department, University of Florence, Largo Brambilla, 3, 50134 Florence, Italy; IRCCS Multimedica, Cardiology Department, Via Milanese, 300, 20099 Sesto San Giovanni, Italy.

The ventricular conduction system starts below the His bundle, where it bifurcates into the right and left bundle branches that taper out to the subendocardial Purkinje network, which activates the ventricular myocardium. This system is responsible for the synchronized and almost simultaneous activation of both ventricles. On the surface electrocardiogram, the ventricular conduction system lies in the terminal portion of the PR interval, whereas the QRS complex composed of the electrical currents originating from ventricular depolarization.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, 15260, USA,

Hyperaccumulation is the phenomenon whereby plants take up and sequester in high concentrations elements that generally are excluded from above-ground tissues. It largely is unknown whether the metals taken up by these plants are transferred to floral rewards (i.e. Read More

The Ashman phenomenon.

J La State Med Soc 2004 May-Jun;156(3):159-62

Louisiana State University, School of Medicine, New Orleans, USA.

In the presence of atrial fibrillation, impulses of supraventricular origin that are transmitted through the ventricles during periods of relative refractoriness to impulse conduction exhibit anomalous configurations. These "aberrant beats" can be difficult to distinguish from ventricular ectopic beats, and groups of aberrant beats may be mistaken for ventricular tachycardia. Richard Ashman, PhD, a physiologist at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans, noted that ventricular refractoriness varied with the lengths of cardiac cycles; that aberrant beats typically ended short cycles following long cycles; and that aberrant beats often have a right bundle branch block configuration.

Mandibular flexure and dental implants: a case report.

Implant Dent 2000 ;9(1):90-5

New York University College of Dentistry, Arthur Ashman Department of Implant Dentistry, USA.

The mandibular deformation as a result of jaw movement from rest position has been studied and documented by other authors. Here, we report that there is a possible correlation between this phenomenon and the discomfort experienced by a patient rehabilitated with implant-supported restoration for the mandibular arch during function. The recovery from pain and symptoms was achieved only after splitting the prosthesis into three sections. Read More

Satisfaction of search in osteoradiology.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2000 Aug;175(2):541-4

Department of Radiology, The Ohio State University Medical Center, Columbus 43210, USA.

Objective: "Satisfaction of search" describes a situation in which the detection of one radiographic abnormality interferes with that of others. This phenomenon has not been investigated for the interpretation of skeletal radiographs. We determined whether satisfaction of search occurs in the interpretation of conventional radiographs of the musculoskeletal system. Read More

[The electrocardiology of atrial fibrillation].

Ital Heart J Suppl 2000 May;1(5):632-40

Unità Operativa di Cardiologia, Ospedale Santa Caterina Novella, Galatina, LE.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and it is associated mainly with a significant mortality and morbidity. The purpose of this report is to focus on the major electro-cardiological aspects of AF and to provide some elements useful in the understanding of its pathophysiology. Experimental and clinical studies have shown that AF is maintained by multiple reentrant wavelets within the atrial muscle. Read More

Fc receptor off-signal in the B cell involves apoptosis.

J Immunol 1996 Jul;157(1):5-11

Iowa City DVA Medical Center, Iowa City 52242, USA.

By linking surface Ig to the FcR Fc gamma RII on the mouse B lymphocyte surface, whole anti-Ig has been shown to block cell cycle entry and subsequent Ab production, a phenomenon called the "Fc receptor off-signal." IL-4 or blocking Ab to Fc gamma RII, present with whole anti-Ig, restores cell cycle progress to the levels observed with F(ab')2 anti-Ig. The current study demonstrates that under "off-signal" conditions with whole anti-Ig, the early entry of B cells into apoptosis was accelerated relative to medium alone or equimolar F(ab')2 anti-Ig.

Sequential bilateral bundle branch block during dofetilide, a new class III antiarrhythmic agent, in a patient with atrial fibrillation.

J Cardiovasc Electrophysiol 1993 Aug;4(4):459-66

Department of Cardiology, Thoraxcenter, University Hospital, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Introduction: The mechanism of wide QRS complex tachycardias during dofetilide infusion was studied in a patient with atrial fibrillation.

Methods And Results: Endocardial recordings from the intraventricular conduction system showed that dofetilide caused "classic" aberrant conduction (Ashman phenomenon, typical QRS morphology) at high prematurity ratios (preceding interval = 1.78 x coupling interval--290), thus mimicking ventricular ectopy.

Mechanisms of verapamil-induced conduction block in anomalous atrioventricular bypass tracts.

J Am Coll Cardiol 1985 Feb;5(2 Pt 1):311-7

Verapamil, a calcium channel blocking agent, has been demonstrated to have depressive effects on the atrioventricular (AV) node but not anomalous AV bypass tracts. Of 39 patients with AV reciprocating tachycardia utilizing left-sided bypass tracts for retrograde conduction, intravenous infusion of verapamil (0.15 mg/kg) terminated the tachycardia in 31 patients.

Variation in H-2 antigen expression on lymphomyeloid cells in semi-allogeneic irradiation chimeras.

J Immunogenet 1984 Apr;11(2):135-47

Spleen cells from 30 individual murine irradiation chimeras of the type (P1 X P2)F1----P1 were compared in a rosetting assay for H-2K and H-2D cell surface antigen expression with normal (P1 X P2)F1 hybrid controls. Eleven out of the 30 chimeras were in the normal range, but the other 19 differed from F1 controls by 4- to 100-fold in endpoint titre for at least one H-2K or H-2D antigen. Every possible class of variation was found, i. Read More

The electrocardiograms of 29 patients with atrial fibrillation and aberrancy (Ashman phenomenon) were studied. The length of the cycles manifesting aberrancy (R-RA) varied from 270 to 520 msec (mean 372 +/- 55). It correlated negatively with the heart rate (r-0. Read More

The induction of ventricular arrhythmias in acute myocardial ischemia by atrial pacing with long-short cycle sequences.

Chest 1977 May;71(5):651-8

Recent studies emphasize the importance of heart rate in the genesis of ventricular arrhythmias during myocardial ischemia. The role of alterations in rhythm has not previously been systematically investigated. In 20 dogs subjected to acute myocardial ischemia and crushing of the sinus node, standard electrocardiographic leads were recorded, as well as His bundle and epicardial electrograms from the normal and ischemic areas.
