OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study is to compare cardiovascular safety profiles of two dental anesthetics: articaine versus two standard mepivacaine solutions used during etiological periodontal treatment in cardiovascular patients. STUDY DESIGN: Using a cross-over study design, ten cardiovascular patients were randomly assigned to dental treatment with 1.8 mL of a local anesthetic injected on each quadrant of the mouth: Articaine (40 mg with Epinephrine 0...

BACKGROUND: Hyperuricemia may be involved in the atherosclerotic process due to endothelial dysfunction and facilitation of smooth muscle cell proliferation. However, debates still exist on the independent role of hyperuricemia, due to its association with several cardiovascular risk factors, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity and insulin resistance. Thus, the aim of the current study was to investigate in a consecutive cohort of patients undergoing coronary angiography whether hyperuricemia is associated with the extent of coronary artery disease...

INTRODUCTION: Adrenal incidentaloma can be described as adrenal lesions that are incidentally diagnosed during abdominal laparotomy or any abdominal screening without prior suspicion of adrenal disease. It is important to diagnose adrenal lesions to learn if they are hormonally active or malignant. The most common clinical sign of pheochromocytoma is sustained or paroxysmal hypertension, and the most common symptoms are headache, excessive truncal sweating, and palpitation. In some cases, the clinical symptoms are not clear...

AIM: This study examines 10.112 cases in 10 years of bilateral block anaesthesia to Spix's spine. The aim of this study is therefore to eliminate any doubt about executing a bilateral anaesthesia to Spix's spine for the extraction, in inclusion and impacted of the inferior wisdom teeth. METHODS: A retrospective study was carried out on 10,112 operations (59% females, 41% males,) regarding the removal of the lower 3 molar teeth undertaken in the past 10 years. Locoregional anaesthesia and standard instruments and protocol were applied to all operations...

The present study shows that enalapril prevents the excessive remodeling of the left ventricle after acute myocardial infarction. This randomized and double blind clinical study analysed 50 patients with an inferior myocardial infarction. The effect of enalapril was evaluated through cardiac volumes, ejection fraction, neurohormonal levels and incidence of the left ventricle disfunction after acute myocardial infarction. The patients treated with enalapril showed a significant reduction on the values of nor-epinefrine, angiotensine II, natriuretic hormone and vasopressine, four weeks after initiation of treatment...

Pseudophakic bullous keratopathy is the leading indication for penetrating keratoplasty. Eight cases of postoperative corneal decompensation occurred during 1 year, five of them in 1 month. So far, three of these patients have received corneal grafts. None of the intraocular lenses were removed. Common symptoms are increased intraocular pressure in the immediate postoperative period, deposition of pigment on the corneal endothelium, long-lasting folds in the on descemet's membrane, edema of the corneal stroma, pigment dusting of the iris and anterior chamber angle...
