Authors: Ghali MGZ, Stewart R, Ghali GZ, Blitzer W Abstract Facile identification of cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV), extensively prevalently identifiable across recipients of cardiac explanted allografts, has proven challenging using non-invasive modalities exclusively. We consequently sought to evaluate diagnostic precision and accuracy of two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) to the end of detecting international society heart &lung transplantation stage III graft vasculopathy (ISHLT-CAV3) in individuals having received cardiac allografts by the meritorious pre-mortem scripted or ve...

Authors: Yoshimaru K, Matsuura T, Uchida Y, Kajihara K, Toriigahara Y, Kawano Y, Kondo T, Takahashi Y, Matsuoka W, Kaku N, Maki J, Taguchi T Abstract Some patients with intestinal failure, who are dependent on total parenteral nutrition for long periods, suffer from a lack of suitable conventional venous access points, including axillary, external jugular, internal jugular, subclavian, saphenous, and the brachio-cephalic and femoral veins, due to their occlusion. Furthermore, extensive central venous stenosis and/or thrombosis of the superior and inferior vena cava may preclude further catheterization, so uncommon ...
