A 33-year-old man with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and cardiac tamponade underwent percutaneous balloon pericardiotomy. To elucidate the pathway of fluid elimination, at the end of the procedure, we injected methylene blue into the pericardial space. Contrary to previous belief, we found no blue discoloration of the pleural fluids, and thus we postulate that most of the fluid was eliminated by peritoneal resorption. [less ▲]

Aims: The purpose of this registry is to collect data on trends in interventional cardiology within Europe. Special interest focuses on relative increases and ratios in newer revascularization approaches and its distribution in different regions in Europe. We report the data of the year 2003 and give an overview of the development of coronary interventions since 1992, when the first data collection was performed. Methods and results: Questionnaires were distributed yearly to delegates of all national societies of cardiology represented in the European Society of Cardiology to collect the case numbers of all local institutions and operators. The overall numbers of coronary angiographies increased from 1992 to 2003 from 684,000 to 1,993,000 (from 1,250 to 3,500 per million inhabitants). The respective numbers for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI-coronary angioplasty) and coronary stenting procedures increased from 184,000 to 733,000 (from 335 to 1,300) and from 3,000 to 610,000 (from 5 to 1,100), respectively. Germany has been the most active country for the past years with 653,000 angiographies (7,800), 222,000 angioplasties (2,500), and 180,000 stenting procedures (2,200) in 2003. The indication has shifted towards acute coronary syndromes, as demonstrated by raising rates of interventions for acute myocardial infarction over the last decade. The procedures are more readily performed and safer, as shown by increasing rate of “ad hoc” PCI and decreasing need for emergency coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG). In 2003, use of drug-eluting stents had further increased. However, an enormous variability is reported with the highest rate in Portugal (55%). Conclusion: Interventional cardiology in Europe is still expanding, mainly but not exclusively due to rapid growth in the eastern European countries. A number of new coronary revascularization procedures introduced over the years have all but disappeared. Only stenting has experienced an exponential growth. The same can be forecast for drug-eluting stenting. [less ▲]

High voltage percutaneous electrical stimulation over the lumbosacral spinal column was used to assess conduction in the cauda equina of 13 normal subjects. Electromyographic activity elicited by such stimulation was recorded from various muscles of the lower limbs. The stimulating cathode was placed over the spinous process of each vertebral body and the anode kept on the iliac crest contralateral to the studied limb. Shifting the cathode in a rostro-caudal direction shortened the response latency in quadriceps, tibialis anterior and extensor digitorum brevis muscles. At moderate intensities (60% maximum), this occurred abruptly when the cathode was placed at levels corresponding to the exit sites from the spinal canal of the roots innervating these muscles. At these intensities, the size of the response in each muscle was largest when the cathode was placed over the conus medullaris or at or below the exit of the motor roots from the spine. Latencies were always equal to or shorter than those obtained with F-wave measurements, suggesting that peripheral motor axons, rather than intraspinal structures were activated by the stimulus. Collision experiments demonstrated that activation occurred at two sites: near the spinal cord and at the root exit site in the vertebral foramina. Recordings made from soleus indicated that larger diameter proprioceptive afferent fibres also could be activated. This technique might have useful clinical applications in the study of both proximal and distal lesions of the cauda equina and provide a non-invasive method of localising such lesions electrophysiologically.

We have used transcranial magnetic stimulation of the motor cortex interictally in 12 patients with unilateral classic migraine with sensorimotor auras and 10 patients with common migraine and unilateral headache. In classic migraine, the threshold of activation of the FDI muscle by the cortical stimulus was significantly increased on the side of the auras, when compared to the unaffected side (P less than 0.01) and to normal subjects (P less than 0.01). The amplitude of EMG responses was also reduced in FDI on the affected side when compared to normals (P less than 0.02). Responses obtained in common migraine patients were normal on both sides. We suggest that some permanent subclinical dysfunction of the motor cortex might play a role in the pathogenesis of attacks of classic migraine with sensorimotor auras. [less ▲]

Recently, the advanced breast biopsy instrumentation (ABBI) system has been introduced as an alternative to conventional breast biopsy techniques. This study was prospectively conducted to evaluate the potential of the ABBI method in locoregional management of a consecutive series of patients with nonpalpable mammographically detected breast carcinomas. Sixty-one consecutive patients underwent an ABBI procedure as a first step before possible surgery for nonpalpable breast lesions that would in any case require complete excision. For the 27 patients in whom the ABBI biopsy revealed malignancy further surgery was recommended, including re-excision of the biopsy site and axillary dissection in cases of infiltrating carcinoma. We calculated the probabilities that the ABBI specimen would have tumor-free margins and that a definitely complete excision had been achieved as a function of the mammographic or pathological diameter of the cancer. For cancer with a pathological diameter less than 10 mm, measured on the ABBI specimen, the probability (92%) of obtaining complete resection was significantly better than for larger lesions (P = 0.01, Fisher's exact test). Although the therapeutic perspectives for the ABBI method are limited at present, we suggest that this approach is a first step in the direction of a surgical strategy that is better adapted to the pathological characteristics peculiar to these small tumors, whose incidence is increasing.

Las nuevas familias están constantemente confrontadas con la elaboración del sentimiento de pérdida. Son pérdidas ambíguas que suelen atañar al sentimiento de pertenencia familiar, cultural y religiosa. Muchas veces las nuevas familias se proponen, en el contexto de la consulta terapéutica, como formas relacionales en duelo cuya identidad parece constuirse sobre esta pérdida. Mediante una viñeta clínica intentaremos mostrar cómo una de las funciones del síntoma es evocar simbólicamente las pérdidas, y esto, en conexión con acontecimientos paranormativos del ciclo vital (rupturas de vínculos, separaciones, divorcios, migraciones) y en resonancia con otras pérdidas trigeneracionales. Es necesario emprender un trabajo de re-elaboración, revisión y reconstrucción de los vínculos familiares en torno a las rupturas-pérdidas a fin de elaborar correctamente los duelos no resueltos.

Perenniporiella chaquenia sp. nov. is described from Argentina. New records of P. pendula and P. micropora are discussed. A key to Perenniporiella species is presented. Preliminary phylogenetic relationships of Perenniporiella are inferred from parsimony and Bayesian analysis of a combined set of DNA sequence data (nuclear ribosomal partial LSU and ITS). It demonstrated that Perenniporiella forms a well resolved monophyletic clade distantly related to Perenniporia s.s. It also clearly showed that within Perenniporia as usually conceived other morphologically homogeneous group of taxa, such as the P. ochroleuca or P. vicina alliances, form well resolved clades, which could be recognized as distinct genera. The differentiation of the hyphal system and the basidiospores morphology are outlined as critical features for the definition of genera in the Perenniporia complex. [less ▲]
