BACKGROUND: The management of atrial fibrillation remains a challenge. This condition remodels atrial electrical properties, which promote resistance to treatment. Although remodelling has long been a therapeutic target in atrial fibrillation, its causes remain incompletely understood. We aimed to evaluate the role of miR-31-dependent reduction in dystrophin and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS, also known as NOS1) on atrial electrical properties and atrial fibrillation inducibility...

Atrial fibrillation is the most commonly encountered arrhythmia in daily practice. Its incidence increases with age. It has been established that in this pathology there is self-aggravation with adverse electrical, functional, and structural remodeling of the atrial tissue. This remodeling can increase morbidity and mortality associated with atrial fibrillation. It has become increasingly clear that early checking of cardiac rhythm can stop this harmful remodeling. Several antiarrhythmia treatments have been demonstrated to be effective in cardioversion of arrhythmia and maintenance of the sinus rhythm...

The author questions the meaning of the very notion of recovery from the perspective of people who have gone through a psychotic episode. Results of two studies are briefly presented under the angles of "social reintegration" from the perspective of discourses and practices of patients; the other on the place and significance of alternative community groups in mental health in regards to consumers' life trajectory and suffering. Narratives illustrate that recovery does not mean a return to what was "before"...

BACKGROUND: Abnormal frequency and pulse amplitud of prolactin secretion in micro and macroprolactinomas has been atributed to a dysfunctional tumoral lactotrope. Previous evidence suggests that non tumoral hyperprolactinemia is caused by a hypothalamic dysfunction. The regularity of prolactin secretion has not been studied with cuantitative methods in patients with normoprolactinemic galactorrhea (NPG) which could be considered an entity that precedes non tumoral and tumoral hyperprolactinemia...

Diverse studies demonstrate that the future baby reacts to the sounds and the light in uterus four months before being born, that is to say, he is able to recognize stimulus which was exposed habitually, like the beats of the mothers heart and the voice of the same one when talk him before being born, likewise the music he used to heard during pregnancy. The babies who through their mother listened to music of Mozart in uterus and return it to listen in the delivery room of when they are born feel greater tranquility and less aggressiveness...

EEG was registered in healthy volunteers before and after their entry into modeling (hypnotic) catalepsy. The brain activity recorded under standard electrode placement (the 10-20 international classification) was processed using a special computer program. The data obtained were digitally represented as sets of standard parameters of EEG patterns in 0,5-32 Hz diapason (alpha-, beta1-, beta2,-, theta-, delta-rythms). These parameters were compared under different functional tests particularly connected with the control of sensomotor brain activity...

UNLABELLED: Thyroid dysfunction exerts an effect on cardiac function and on an electrocardiographic curve. Few studies analyzed the influence of thyroid hormones on heart repolarization. Heart repolarization is assessed in every-day-practice with corrected QT interval in ECG. Prolonged QTc is associated with increased risk for heart rythm disturbances and mortality. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of hyperthyroidism on heart repolarization, measured with QT corrected by Bazett's formula...

Pain is a mechanism of defense in response to damaged tissue in order to determine a response to remove the cause of damage. Attention to pain control is considered a quality index in the pediatric care newborn infants react to pain with changes in cardiac and respiratory rate, blood pressure, blood gas, grimace, palm sweating, crying, sleep/awake rythm. Measuring pain in child is based on: history of the child, changes in behaviour adn vital parameters. Being able to explain pain depends on cognitive and language ability of the child...

Atrial fibrillation (FA) is the most common arrhythmia, and frequency of its occurrence increases with age. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of sinus rhythm (SR) restoration on heart rate (HR) and ventricular arrhythmia (AEV) and pauses (PA) occurrence in patients in over 70 years age. Study group consists with 104 patients with nonrheumatic FA of different etiology, which were divided to two groups: in younger and older age. In group I (younger patients) were 52 patients (25 women and 27 men), 38 to 69 (mean 51...

Recent progress in the human genome project allows us to study the genetic basis of complex traits such as atherosclerosis and diabetes. Among various approaches, a genetic approach such as affected sib-paired analysis and case-control study has successfully identified genes for susceptibility to Alzheimer's disease and diabetes. Several points to be considered are discussed for their successful application to athroscelorosis. In addition, functional genomic approaches based on powerful technology such as cDNA microarray and knockout mice allow us to identify genes and proteins involved in the complex biological (disease) process...

Responses to sensory stimuli were analyzed in hippocampal CA1 neurons of unanesthetized rabbits in chronic experiments before and after reversible functional blockade of the median raphe nucleus (MR) and medial septal area (MS-DB) by local microinjections of anesthetic lidocaine. The MR blockade, which resulted in an enhancement of theta-modulation of the background activity of the hippocampal neurons, was followed by a depression of sensory responsiveness (only 46.7% of the neurons reactive before the blockade retained their responses)...

Only the neurophysiological aspects of this complex problem are reviewed, excluding biomechanical data. Animal models (lamprey, cat) are chosen in view of their recent experimental and theoretical contributions to the field. Three levels of neural organization are considered: spinal level of central pattern generator (CPG): its existence and function are described with emphasis on its neurochemical constituents; moreover, sensory feedback from proprioceptive and cutaneous inputs--acting in specific phase with the locomotor rythm--is discussed; supraspinal modulations, either tonic or phasic: several brainstem loci (relaying through the median reticular formation) are key-structures in the tonic drive of the spinal locomotor network whereas vestibular nuclei and red nucleus are respectively involved in phasic modulation of extensor and flexor activities; moreover, the cerebellum receiving efference copy from the spinal network--plays a major role in the control of these subcortical systems; "superior" adaptations for skilled locomotion: a possible visuo-motor coordination by the motor cortex and cortico-spinal tract is finally proposed, based on recording and microstimulation experiments in the cat...

Sowda skin lesions are of medical and social importance in Yemen. Ivermectin (Mectizan) chose as a control strategy plan in onchocerciasis is active during 3 months for the less on clinical and histological data. After a short increase of itching and oedematous skin aspects clinical signs decrease. Some patients notice an itching rebound after 90 days. Histologically, localized ingratiates, presence of mononuclear cells and melenin loaded histiocytes and eosinophils decreased. The rythm cure has to be studied on a longer period but 3 to 6 months repetition between oral treatment with 200 micrograms/kg dose during two years could be effective...

BACKGROUND: It has been shown by previous studies that the mean fetal heart rate (FHR) decreases from the 11th to the 30th week, afterwards the values remain more stable. In the present study we evaluated the FHR pattern throughout the last stages of pregnancy and particularly we estimated the interindividual variability to achieve the maturation of the parasympathetic nervous system in the control of the FHR rythm. METHODS: Serial FHR determinations were made from the 28th week until term in 126 physiological pregnancies, submitted to umbilical Doppler velocimetry...
