  • Broken heart in elderly patients: two clinical observations. [Case Reports]
    Aging Clin Exp Res 2012; 24(1):97-103Saller A, De Stefano F, … Fabris F
  • Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy (idiopathic or transient left ventricular apical ballooning syndrome [ABS]) is a reversible condition frequently precipitated by a stressful trigger that clinically mimics an acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Characteristically, hypokinesis or akinesis occurs in the mid- and apical segments of the left ventricle in the absence of epicardial coronary lesions. Pres…
  • Atypical Takotsubo syndrome during anagrelide therapy. [Case Reports]
    J Cardiovasc Med (Hagerstown) 2009; 10(7):546-9Proietti R, Rognoni A, … Rognoni G
  • Anagrelide is a phosphodiesterase III inhibitor utilized in the treatment of essential thrombocythemia. Anagrelide can be responsible for positive inotropic and chonotropic activity of the cardiovascular system. Moreover, it can induce vasospam directly on the epicardial coronary arteries. In the literature, it is well reported that this inhibitor can determine serious cardiovascular side effects…
  • Takotsubo cardiomyopathy in two female patients: two case reports. [Journal Article]
    Cases J 2008; 1(1):325Turley A, Graham R, Hall J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Patients with tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy present with features consistent with an acute coronary syndrome and as such the syndrome is probably under-diagnosed. It may be with the introduction of primary percutaneous coronary intervention more cases are identified, sparing patients the risks of unnecessary thrombolytic therapy. Tako-tsubo cardiomyopathy should be considered in all patients presenting with acute onset chest pain and elevated cardiac biomarkers.
  • ECG-gated 18F-FDG positron emission tomography. [Journal Article]
    Int J Cardiovasc Imaging 2002; 18(5):363-72Hoffmeister HM, Helber U, … Müller-Schauenburg W
  • CONCLUSIONS: ECG-gated metabolic PET with pixel-based Fourier smoothing provides reliable data on regional function. Assessment of metabolism and function makes complete judgement of segmental status feasible within a single study without any transfer artefacts or test-to-test variability. The results indicate the presence of considerable amounts of viable myocardium in regions with an uptake of 40-50% 18F-FDG.
  • The effect of hyaluronidase on akinesia during cataract surgery. [Randomized Controlled Trial]
    Ophthalmic Surg 1989; 20(5):325-6Abelson MB, Mandel E, … George M
  • The ability of hyaluronidase to improve akinesis in retrobulbar anesthesia was evaluated in a double-masked study. Forty consecutive patients undergoing cataract surgery were anesthetized with 3 ml of a 1:1 mixture of 4.0% lidocaine and 0.75% bupivacaine solution. In a predetermined randomized fashion, 2 ml of hyaluronidase (300 USP units) were added to half of the syringes, and 2 ml of saline to…
  • [Reversibility of akinetic segments in coronary heart disease]. [Journal Article]
    Z Kardiol 1984; 73(9):568-77Schneider W, Kohl S, … Kaltenbach M
  • Akinetic wall segments not exhibiting contractions following nitroglycerin administration or in a post-extrasystolic beat are usually considered to consist of scar tissue; i.e. even by re-established or improved blood supply following aorto-coronary bypass surgery no functional improvement is expected. In the present study, the pre- and postoperative ventriculograms (RAO projection) of 24 patient…
