BACKGROUND: Safety and efficacy of bioresorbable vascular scaffolds (BRS) and the role of postdilatation on outcome in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients compared with those of everolimus-eluting stents (EES) remain unknown. The aim of the study is to compare the safety and efficacy of BRS with EES in ACS and to investigate the role of BRS postdilatation. METHODS: Consecutive ACS patients undergoing BRS implantation in 8 centers were com-pared with those with EES before and after propensity score matching...

Clinical and neuroimaging data indicate a cerebellar contribution to emotional processing, which may account for affective-behavioral disturbances in patients with cerebellar lesions. We studied the neurophysiology of cerebellar involvement in recognition of emotional facial expression. Participants comprised eight patients with discrete ischemic cerebellar lesions and eight control patients without any cerebrovascular stroke. Event-related potentials (ERP) were used to measure responses to faces from the Karolinska Directed Emotional Faces Database (KDEF), interspersed in a stream of images with salient contents...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article reviews recent advances in the postoperative ICU management of patients after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), especially with regards to hemodynamic management, methods of improving neurological outcomes, and management of cardiac and pulmonary complications. RECENT FINDINGS: Several hemodynamic monitors and parameters may be useful for guiding volume therapy, including cardiac output, stroke volume variation monitoring, and global end-diastolic volume index...

Intrapericardial pneumonectomy is a major thoracic surgical procedure which is employed to resect locally advanced bronchogenic carcinoma. The procedure differs slightly in the left side than in the right side due to the anatomical differences of the two pulmonary hila and adjacent mediastinal structures. The common beginning of the operation is the longitudinal opening of the pericardium behind the phrenic nerve. On the left side, the pulmonary artery is dissected under the aortic arch and the ligamentum arteriosum is divided...

The national Italian cross-country ski team has been evaluated on the basis of a new double poling cross-country roller skiing incremental test to exhaustion (DP) on a motorized driven treadmill. To verify the capacity of this specific test to predict performance, peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak), oxygen uptake at anaerobic threshold (VO2Th), peak treadmill speed, and treadmill speed at anaerobic threshold (Speak and STh, respectively) were measured during the test and correlated with the level of performance of 10 world class Italian female cross-country skiers...

We report a double-blind, multicenter, multinational, placebo-controlled, and well-controlled trial to prove that the sustained-release (SR) formulation of propafenone is superior to placebo in preventing symptoms of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). A total of 594 patients were enrolled in the qualifying period of the study and 293 patients were randomized at 53 centers. There were significant increases in the arrhythmia-free periods from day 5 of randomization to the first recurrence of symptomatic atrial arrhythmia in the propafenone SR 325 mg twice daily (p = 0...
