Background: Data on coronary heart disease (CHD) are scanty and matter of argument in acromegalic patients. Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate risk factors for development of CHD and the occurrence of cardiac events in acromegalic patients during a 5-yr prospective study. Design: Ten-year likelihood for CHD development was estimated by the Framingham scoring system (FS); patients were stratified as having low (FS < 10), intermediate (≥ 10 FS < 20), or high (FS ≥ 20) risk. Cor...

We report on two cases of patients with myocardial R interval. The best data sets of axial images for evalubridging on left anterior descending artery (LAD), studied with multidetector computed tomography study (MDCT). Patient no. 1 was a 65-year-old man, who presented at our cath lab with stable angina pectoris. Patient was a previous smoker and had no history of systemic hypertension. Echocardiogram showed a normal left ventricular function with no myocardial hypertrophy or any valvular diseas...

Purpose: The purpose of this work was to evaluate feasibility of spirometric-gated high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and to compare the lung density CT measurements obtained with and without spirometric control of lung volume. Method: Twenty-nine patients with COPD underwent pulmonary function tests and spirometric-gated (3 slices at 10% and 90% of vital capacity) and -ungated (12 slices at maximum expiration and inspiration)...

Abstract An enhanced proteolysis of lung interstitium is key event in the pathogenesis of emphysema, a major constituent of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. To assess whether urinary desmosine and/or hydroxyproline may be used as a marker of lung destruction we studied urinary excretions of these products in 20 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and in 19 appropriate controls in 24 h urine collection samples. For desmosine measurements, we developed a new indirect competit...

PURPOSE: To evaluate computed tomographic (CT) colonography in patients with clinical suspicion of colorectal cancer and in whom colonoscopy was incomplete. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After incomplete colonoscopy, 34 patients underwent CT colonography before and after intravenous injection of iodinated contrast agent, in supine and prone positions. Twenty patients with no evidence of colon cancer after complete colonoscopy were included as a control group. Sensitivity and specificity of CT colonogra...

We investigated the relationship between the extent of pulmonary emphysema, assessed by quantitative high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), and lung mechanics in 24 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The extent of emphysema was quantified as the relative lung area with CT numbers < − 950 Hounsfield Units (HU). Patients with COPD had severe airflow obstruction (FEV1 35 ± 15% pred) and severe reduction of CO diffusion constant (Dco/Va 37 ± 19% pred). Maximal static el...

Purpose Our aim was to evaluate the accuracy of spiral CT study of small-bowel Crohn disease with use of oral hyperhydration with isoosmotic solution. Method We prospectively analyzed 33 consecutive patients and 10 control subjects with spiral CT after oral administration of 2,000 ml of polyethylene glycol electrolyte-balanced solution. The CT diagnoses were compared with the results of conventional radiologic oral barium examination (33 cases), ileum colonoscopy (8 cases), and surgery (4 cases)...
