Vascular complications of Q-fever infections

, : Vascular complications of Q-fever infections. European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery 42(3): 384-392

Burnetii is a strict intracellular pathogen causing Q fever, a worldwide zoonosis with an extensive animal reservoir. Chronic Q fever infections are frequently associated with cardiovascular complications, mainly endocarditis, and also aortic aneurysms and vascular-graft infection. We present four cases of chronic Q fever infections and associated vascular complications, and review the literature to identify major symptoms and assess the prevalence, treatment and outcome in these challenging patients. Materials and methods: The demographic and clinical data of four patients presenting at our unit were analysed. PubMed was searched to identify articles describing patients with chronic Q-fever-associated vascular complications. Combining our own with.

The objective of this paper is to demonstrate a multiplexed inductive force sensor for simultaneously measuring normal force and shear forces on a foot. The sensor measures the normal force and shear forces by monitoring the inductance changes of...

Gates, R.S.; Scott, N.R., 1986: Measurements of effective teat load during machine milking. A transducer assembly for measuring effective teat load exerted by the liner during machine milking was developed. The transducer showed a linear relation between applied liner load and analogue voltage output. Measurements with an artificial teat...
