Terminal T-wave inversion predicts reperfusion tachyarrhythmias in STEMI.

J Electrocardiol 2022 Jan 5;71:28-31. Epub 2022 Jan 5.

Department of Cardiology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden; Arrhythmia Clinic, Skåne University Hospital, 22185 Lund, Sweden.

Introduction: A reliable electrocardiographic predictor of ventricular fibrillation (VF) in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is lacking so far. Previous experimental/simulation study suggested a terminal T-wave inversion (TTWI) in ischemia-related ECG leads corresponding to anterior infarct localization as an independent predictor of reperfusion VF (rVF). This T-wave characteristic has never been tested as a rVF predictor in clinical settings. Read More

Zoledronic acid combined with percutaneous kyphoplasty in the treatment of osteoporotic compression fracture in a single T12 or L1 vertebral body in postmenopausal women.

Osteoporos Int 2019 Jul 11;30(7):1475-1480. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Rheumatology, Changhai Hospital, Shanghai, China.

We performed a 1-year prospective study to see whether zoledronic acid infusion combined with percutaneous kyphoplasty could provide more benefits in the treatment of T12 or L1 osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF).

Introduction: To investigate and analyze the clinical effects of zoledronic acid (ZOL) in combination with percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) in the treatment of OVCF in postmenopausal women.

Methods: Included in this study were 101 postmenopausal women patients with T12 or L1 OVCF who received PKP in our hospital between August 2015 and July 2017. Read More

Prolonged T-T interval is associated with ventricular fibrillation during reperfusion in ST-elevation myocardial infarction.

Int J Cardiol 2019 04 4;280:80-83. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Cardiology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University, SE-22185 Lund, Sweden.

Aim: Ventricular fibrillation (VF) during reperfusion in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is associated with increased in-hospital mortality. Dispersion of ventricular repolarization contributes to ventricular vulnerability during ischemia. T-T interval was proposed as a ventricular repolarization dispersion marker, however its value for prediction of reperfusion VF remains uncertain. Read More

The tissue selecting technique (TST) versus the Milligan-Morgan hemorrhoidectomy for prolapsing hemorrhoids: a retrospective case-control study.

Tech Coloproctol 2014 Aug 22;18(8):739-44. Epub 2014 Jun 22.

Department of Proctology, The Sixth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University (Gastrointestinal and Anal Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University), Yuancun Er Heng Lu, No. 26, Guangzhou, 510655, People's Republic of China.

Background: Milligan-Morgan hemorrhoidectomy (MMH) is the procedure of choice in the management of hemorrhoidal disease. However, this procedure is associated with significant postoperative pain. Tissue selecting technique (TST) is a segmental stapled hemorrhoidopexy, which aims to reduce the postoperative pain, rectovaginal fistula (RVF) and rectal stenosis. Read More

Postoperative right ventricular failure after left ventricular assist device placement is predicted by preoperative echocardiographic structural, hemodynamic, and functional parameters.

J Card Fail 2013 Jan;19(1):16-24

Cardiovascular Institute, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15212-4772, USA.

Background: Right ventricular failure (RVF) after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation results in significant morbidity and mortality. Preoperative parameters from transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) that predict RVF after LVAD implantation might identify patients in need of temporary or permanent right ventricular (RV) mechanical or inotropic support.

Methods And Results: Records of all patients who had preoperative TTE before implantation of a permanent LVAD at our institution from 2008 to 2011 were screened, and 55 patients (age 54 ± 16 years, 71% male) were included: 26 had LVAD implantation alone with no postoperative RVF, 16 had LVAD implantation alone but experienced postoperative RVF, and 13 had initial biventricular assist devices (BIVADs).

Rectovaginal fistulas after rectal cancer surgery: Incidence and operative repair by gluteal-fold flap repair.

Surgery 2005 Mar;137(3):329-36

Divisions of Colorectal (Pelvic) Surgery, National Cancer Center Hospital East, Kashiwa, Chiba, Japan.

Background: We investigated the correlation between operative procedures for rectal carcinoma and postoperative rectovaginal fistulas (RVF), and treatment for RVF.

Methods: The medical records of 161 female patients with rectal carcinoma were examined retrospectively with respect to the cause, incidence, and methods of treatment for RVF occurring after rectal cancer operations, and to the outcomes of gluteal-fold flap repairs for RVF.

Results: Of the 161 patients, 16 developed RVF clinically. Read More

Pulmonary hemodynamics in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease before and during an episode of peripheral edema.

Chest 1994 May;105(5):1377-82

Department of Pulmonology, University Hospital, Strasbourg, France.

We have investigated pulmonary hemodynamics in 16 patients with COPD with respiratory insufficiency, exhibiting marked peripheral edema. All the patients had previously undergone, within the last 6 months (T1), a right heart catheterization, in a stable state of their disease, when they were free of edema. Patients were subdivided into two groups according to the level of right ventricular end-diastolic pressure (RVEDP) during the episode of edema (T2): patients with a markedly elevated RVEDP (> 12 mm Hg) indicating the presence of right ventricular failure (RVF) = group 1, n = 9; patients with a normal or slightly elevated RVEDP (< 12 mm Hg) = group 2 (no RVF), n = 7.
