[treatment of early post-infarction ventricular aneurysms by assisted circulation and surgery].ventricular aneurysm formation in the 3 months following transmural myocardial infarction is rare but may cause serious complications. cardiac failure and/or ventricular arrhythmias resistant to medical treatment are indications for ventricular resection. the operative mortality is high in this group of patients. 8 patients with ventricular aneurysms of average volume (124 +/- 117 ml/m2) and very impaired left ventricular function (ef : 21 +/- 10%, akinesia : 53 +/- 10%) were operated on with tw ...1998106796
aneurysm rupture secondary to transcatheter embolization.false aneurysms of the pancreatic and peripancreatic arteries are a well recognized complication of chronic pancreatitis due to proteolytic enzymatic digestion of the arterial wall. these false aneurysms can be a source of life-threatening hemorrhage. three cases are reported in which attempted embolizations of these bleeding aneurysms resulted in rupture into the gastrointestinal tract. special precautions should be taken in such a procedure because of the inherent weakness of the aneurysmal wa ...1998106684
[conspicuous accumulation of membranous glomerulonephritis following gold therapy in chronic polyarthritis--a side effect of a new preparation?].the development of severe proteinuria or nephrotic syndrome as an adverse reaction to gold therapy in rheumatoid arthritis is well known. morphologic examination reveals membranous glomerulonephritis in almost all cases. since the beginning of 1978 there has been a striking increase in the number of such cases seen at this institute. 5 patients aged from 17 to 65 years who had been treated with sodium aurothiomalate for rheumatoid arthritis developed severe proteinuria. in all cases only minimal ...1998106466
regulation of immune response to tumor antigen: interference with syngeneic tumor immunity by anti-ia alloantisera.we present evidence for a role of i-a subregion-encoded determinants in syngeneic tumor immunity. in animals rendered immune to the s1509a fibrosarcoma, daily treatment with microliter quantities of antisera directed against kk and i-ak determinants expressed on lymphoid cells of host origin decreased the capacity for immune tumor rejection. absorption studies revealed that anti-i-ak antibody activity alone was sufficient for the manifestation of this effect. furthermore, experiments utilizing f ...1998106399
