TAPSE measurement during echocardiography is a well known measure of right heart systo-diastolic function. Low TAPSE means reduced cranio-caudal excursion of tricuspidal annulus, sign of both reduced ejection fraction and reduced distensibility of right ventricle. It is a good prognostic index for cardiac mortality risk in CHF patients, adding significant prognostic information to NYHA stadiation. Nephrologists do not always fully aware of right ventricular function in their patients affected by chronic renal failure (CRF), even if this datum is probably crucial in vascular access policy...

UNLABELLED: Hypertension is a common and difficult clinic problem in patients undergoing cronical hemodialysis and exerts a deleterious effect on mordibidy and mortality in end stage renal disease. Identification of potentially reversible factors associated with hypertension would be rational fist step in designing and effective therapeutic strategy. Our study aimed to document the prevalence of hypertension in hemodialysis patients in Andalucia and identify and characterise the demographic, epidemiological, clinical factors and dialysis regimens associated with hypertension...

The purpose of our study was the evaluation of the effects of a film on the anxiety and memory of cronically ill adolescents (n. 25) versus healthy adolescents (n. 25). The chronic illness was: renal failure, renal transplantation (6 months before), scoliosis and Crohn's disease. The S.T.A.I.-Y test was administered before and after the film to evaluate the state-anxiety before and after the vision, only the trait-anxiety was evaluated before. The state and trait-anxiety was not abnormal, although the state anxiety was increased in the hospitalized adolescents before the vision (mean S...

Tests were set up on rats, guinea pigs and dogs to look into the cronic toxicity of nonachlazine, an effective antianginal agent, used for a space of 6 months in doses of 10 and 35 mg/kg, by far superior to the ones effectively employed clinically. The results of hematological, morphological and biochemical investigations bear evidence to a low toxicity of nonachlozine, which gives good reason to presume the drug to be safe for the use in medical practice.
