Preserved Left Ventricular Performance in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats Following Preload and Afterload Challenges

Ming Fan, Mahmoud M. El-Mas, and Abdel A. Abdel-Rahman

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: August 29, 2015

Chronic LV pressure overload, e.g. in hypertension, leads to cardiac hypertrophy and ultimately heart failure. However, it is not clear if cardiac performance is compromised during early stages of LV hypertrophy before the development of heart failure. Studies in animals with LV hypertrophy revealed conflicting results due to differences in the magnitude, duration, and method of induction of cardi...

Pioglitazone Improves Endothelial Function in Patients with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Following Catheter Ablation

Jun Gu, Wei Hu, Xu Liu and Chang-Qian Wang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 30, 2015

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of sustained heart rhythm disorder confronted in clinical practice, which confers a high risk of mortality and morbidity from abnormal hemodynamics and thromboembolism. The beat-to-beat alteration of flow dynamics in AF has disadvantageous effects on cardiac haemodynamics and is associated with endothelial dysfunction. Endothelial dysfunction may co...

Prevalence of Pulmonary Hypertension among Chronic Kidney Disease Patients and its Relation to Location and Blood Flow of Vascular Access

Osama A. Khamis, Tarek Abd El-Hamid Elzyat and Abd El-Rahman Ibrahim Mohammed Ali

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 29, 2015

Background:Pulmonary hypertension is increasingly being recognized as a factor that can affect outcome in end stage renal disease. This study was carried out to evaluate the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension among CKD patients and it's relation to vascular access blood flow and location. Patient and Methods:30 patients on regular hemodialysis, 30 patients in predialysis and 30 healthy indivi...

Unusual Manifestation of Herpes Zoster Infection Involving the Greater, Lesser Occipital and Transverse Cervical Nerve: A Case Report

Emilio Mevio

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 3, 2015

The most common presentation of Herpes Zoster infection in the head and neck region is Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS). RHS represents a complication of the Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) infection, tipically presenting with the triad of ipsilateral peripheral type facial nerve paralysis, ipsilateral ear pain and erythematous vesicles in the external auditory canal. Herpes Zoster results from the reactiv...

Ramsay Hunt Syndrome Type 2: A Review of an Uncommon and Unwelcome Neurodermatologic Disease

Reid A. Waldman, Corey W. Waldman and Steven D. Waldman

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 28, 2015

First described in 1907 by James Ramsay Hunt, an American neurologist, Ramsay Hunt syndrome is the eponym given to a constellation of symptoms including a vesicular rash of the external ear and the ipsilateral two thirds of the tongue with associated paralysis of the seventh cranial nerve. The syndrome, which is also known as herpes zoster oticus and Hunt's syndrome, is believed to be caused by re...

Suspected Aspiration of a Patency Capsule

Claude F Harbarger and Brian J Wiatrak

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 21, 2015

Video Capsule Endoscopy (VCE) is an established means of evaluating the upper and lower aerodigestive tracts, with 3 companies now having received FDA clearance for their devices. The most prevalent risk of VCE is capsule retention, which infrequently results in bowel obstruction. In patients suspected of having a high risk of capsule retention, a dissolvable patency capsule is given a few days pr...

Insomnia and Emotion Regulation: Recent Findings and Suggestions for Treatment

Silvia Cerolini, Andrea Ballesio and Caterina Lombardo

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 28, 2015

Recent findings suggest that insomnia and emotion regulation are closely connected. Insomnia is widely associated with medical and psychiatric conditions as well as with impaired quality of life and emotional functioning. Additionally empirical evidence suggests that emotional dysregulation plays a crucial role in the onset and maintenance of psychopathological disorders. Although these seem to in...

MicroRNA in Brain Neoplasia: A Review

Michela Visani, Giorgia Acquaviva, Gianluca Marucci, Moira Ragazzi, Enrico Fraceschi, Alba A Brandes, Giovanni Tallini, Annalisa Pession and Dario de Biase

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 27, 2015

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNAs involved in regulation of several cellular processes and are involved in the silencing of cell's message in a variety of ways. In cancer, miRNAs can be involved in the regulation of important genes involved in tumorigenesis, tumor development, and angiogenesis. For these reasons, miRNAs could have considered oncogenic-miR (miRNA with oncogenic roles) or oncosuppre...

External Carotid Artery Steal Syndrome via Occipital-Vertebral Anastomosis

Menarvia Nixon, Anil Nanda and Hugo Cuellar-Saenz

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 26, 2015

We describe a case of ECA steal syndrome due to occipital- vertebral anastamosis in an 81 y/o female patient who presented with gait ataxia and dizziness. She was referred to Neuro-interventional Radiology after discovery of carotid bruits on her physical examination. A digital subtraction angiogram confirmed mild internal carotid artery stenosis, however, more concerning was the discovery of retr...

Micronuclei Induction and Neurotoxic Effect in C6 Glioma Cells Exposed to Low Concentrations of Diazinon, an Organophosphorus Compound

Carla Falugi, Chiara Gambardella, Tommaso Bonfiglio, Zoltan Rakonczay, Federico Biggi, Sara Novelli and Mariangela Masini

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 26, 2015

Even though the adverse effects on environment and organism health have been long and thoroughly studied, the problem represented by the continuous use of neurotoxic pesticides, in particular organophosphates (OPs, organic salts of the pyro phosphoric acid), is still open. These are considered as emerging pollutants, as their massive employment is relatively recent, dating after the ban of persist...
