Current task force criteria (TFC) of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) for the diagnosis of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC/D) were generated by comparing probands (mean age of 44 years) to healthy participants of the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis (mean age of 60 years). These age differences may be a selection bias because right ventricular end-diastolic volume index decreases 4.6% per decade. Moreover, fat infiltration and late gadolinium enhancement were not included. We evaluated the diagnostic accuracy of TFC using the same methodology used by the task force but comparing probands and age- and gender-matched healthy controls and considering also other morphofunctional and tissue abnormalities detected by CMR...

INTRODUCTION: Differences in systolic blood pressure reading between arms are common but could signal trouble if the discrepancy is significant. Early detection of aortic dissection could invariably determine patient's survivability. Hence, a high index of suspicion with prompt diagnostic imaging is vital for accurate diagnosis. CASE PRESENTATION: A previously healthy 35-year-old lady was referred from district hospital for hypertensive cardiomyopathy complicated by acute pulmonary oedema...

Two radiated tortoises (Astrochelys radiata) exhibited anorexia and hypokinesia. In both cases, hematological and serum biochemical examinations revealed high alkaline phosphatase levels, moderately high aspartate aminotransferase levels and white blood cell counts approximately within the normal range. Despite being treated, the tortoises died 9 and 43 days after the first clinical examination. Gross pathological examinations revealed that the livers of both animals were extremely swollen and contained pale yellow necrotic tissue...

Hypocalcemic cardiomyopathy is a rare entity. We describe a patient with severe heart failure, decreased ejection fraction and global hypokinesia documented on echocardiogram, associated with severe hypocalcemia, very low vitamin D status, increased QT intervals, increased BNP (serum brain natriuretic peptide) levels and CPK (creatine phosphokinase) levels. All these defects reversed on treatment with vitamin D and calcium within a few days without any specific cardiac intervention.

Although nocturnal hypokinesia represents one of the most common nocturnal disabilities in Parkinson disease (PD), it is often a neglected problem in daily clinical practice. We have developed a portable ambulatory motion recorder (the NIGHT-Recorder), which consists of 16-bit triaxial integrated microelectromechanical system inertial sensors that are specifically designed to measure movements, register the position of the body with respect to gravity, and provide information on rotations on the longitudinal axis while lying in bed...

Deterioration of health characteristics and ever increasing diabetes and cardiovascular morbidity among young subjects imply the necessity of identification ofpossible risk factors of these conditions. We evaluated the prevalence of hyperlipoproteinemia and adipose tissue activity based on the results of screening for resistin level, aggravated heredity, disordered hydrocarbon metabolism, overweight, arterial hypertension, behaviour (physical overstrain, hypokinesia, smoking, inadequate dietary regime). The risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus and overall risk of cardiovascular disorders were calculated...

BACKGROUND: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus internus (GPi) has been established as an effective and safe treatment for dystonia. In general, side effects are rare, but there is increasing evidence that GPi DBS in dystonia can induce hypokinetic symptoms like micrographia or freezing of gait. We aimed to evaluate and quantify possible changes of gait following bilateral chronic GPi DBS for dystonia by computerized gait analyses. METHODS: We prospectively performed computerized gait analysis in ten consecutive patients (mean age 57...

Teresa H Sanders, Dieter Jaeger
Electrical deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is effective for ameliorating the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) including bradykinesia. The STN receives its main excitatory input from cortex; however, the contribution of cortico-subthalamic projection neurons to the effects of DBS remains unclear. To isolate the consequences of stimulating layer 5 primary motor cortex (M1) projections to the STN, we used a dual virus transfection technique to selectively express opsins in these neurons in mice made parkinsonian by unilateral nigrostriatal 6-OHDA lesioning...

Repolarization properties of ventricular myocardium were studied in anesthetized adult dogs of both sexes subjected to antiorthostatic hypokinesia (head-down tilt at 45° and 60° to the horizontal) and during recovery period (horizontal position for 15 min). The time of repolarization of ventricular myocardium during recovery surpassed the initial value, which represents an adaptive response of the heart to antiorthostasis.
