Understanding the development of behavior risk factors for cardiovascular disease in youth: the Bogalusa Heart Study.
Lifestyle behaviors, societal structure and process, as well as psychological functioning are critical for a comprehensive understanding of the development, progression, and potential interventions for cardiovascular disease in children and young adults. Several behavior factors emerge as mediators...
Panoramic radiomorphometric indices as reliable parameters in predicting osteoporosis.
The purpose was to evaluate the significance of panoramic radiomorphometric indices (mandibular cortical index [MCI], mental index [MI] and panoramic mandibular index [PMI]) as useful tools for identifying osteoporosis. One hundred healthy women aged ≥ 30 years were included. Digital panoramic image...
Atypical rocky mountain spotted Fever with polyarticular arthritis.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF) is an acute, serious tick borne illness caused by Rickettsia rickettsi. Frequently, RMSF is manifested by headache, a typical rash and fever but atypical disease is common, making diagnosis difficult. Inflammatory arthritis as a manifestation is rare. The purpose...
A rare case of double parathyroid lipoadenoma with hyperparathyroidism.
: A rare case of double lipoadenomas of parathyroid glands with hyperparathyroidism is described. A 56-year-old woman was referred for management of diabetes. Work up revealed: serum Calcium (Ca) =11.9 mg/dl, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) = 103 ml/min/m2, parathyroid hormone (PTH) = 60 pg/ml, Pho...
Takayasu's arteritis and its role in causing renal artery stenosis.
We present the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of Takayasu's arteritis with particular emphasis on renal artery stenosis. The aim is to increase the awareness of this condition among clinicians because early diagnosis and the timely introduction of treatment can lead t...
Heart failure with a normal left ventricular ejection fraction: epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management.
: Heart failure (HF) with a normal left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (HFNEF) occurs in 40-71% of patients with HF and carries a prognosis similar to that of HF with a reduced LV ejection fraction (LVEF). The pathophysiology of HFNEF is distinct from that of HF with a reduced LVEF and is charac...
Chlamydia trachomatis is present and metabolically active during the remitting phase in synovial tissues from patients with chronic Chlamydi...
Patients with chronic Chlamydia-induced reactive arthritis (ReA) often show a remitting-relapsing disease phenotype. Some information regarding bacterial and host responses to one another during active disease is available but no information for quiescence. This article presents the first molecular...
Partial papillary muscle rupture: a cause of acute mitral regurgitation.
: A 56-year-old woman presented to the cardiology clinic with a 7-day history of dyspnea and chest pressure. An echocardiogram showed a flail posterior mitral valve leaflet, and subsequent left heart catheterization showed complete occlusion of the first obtuse marginal coronary artery. Further inve...
