Valve replacement with the Starr-Edwards prosthesis: a follow-up study of 30 patients


, : Valve replacement with the Starr-Edwards prosthesis: a follow-up study of 30 patients. Canadian Journal of Surgery. Journal Canadien de Chirurgie 10(2): 161-167

The 1st 30 patients discharged from St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver following Starr-Edwards valve replacements are described. In a 1-3 yr. follow-up, 11 patients died, 36%. Two died of bacterial endocarditis, 2 of thrombosis of the valve and 1 each of myocardial infraction, homologous serum jaundice, mediastinitis, hemorrhagic necrosis of the bowel, dehiscence of the valve, escape of the ball from the cage, and sudden death.

The goals of the present study were to model the population kinetics of in vivo influx and efflux processes of grepafloxacin at the serum-cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) barrier and to propose a simulation-based approach to optimize the design of dose-f...

The MET proto-oncogene encodes a transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor for HGF (p190MET). In this work, p190MET was immunoprecipitated, allowed to phosphorylate in the presence of [gamma-32P]ATP, and digested with trypsin. A major phosphopeptide...

The development of targeted, bidentate photoaffinity reagents for mapping the interacting domains of calmodulin (CaM) with the enzymes that it regulates required the synthesis and evaluation of the binding affinity of various phenothiazines. These...

Studies to elucidate the chemical structures of new flavins formed by Schizophyllum commune, namely schizoflavin (SF), were carried out. It was found by an enzymatic study that riboflavin (FR) was apparently converted via SF2 to SF1, and that SF2...

CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T cells (T-reg) play an important role in maintaining immunologic tolerance. Glucocorticoid-induced TNFR family-related gene (GITR) expressed preferentially at high levels on T-reg has been shown to be a key player of regu...
