Rapid Versus Prolonged Inpatient Up-Titration of Captopril

Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) are one of the most frequently prescribed pediatric cardiac medication and overall their safety in children is widely accepted. Pediatric formulary recommendations for ACEi suggest starting with a low initial dose (0.1 mg/kg), to avoid hypotension, and up-titration for a maintenance dose. However, side ranges ...

Cardiac FDG PET Viability Registry

Heart failure from reduced left ventricular function is associated with significant morbidity and mortality and although there have been multiple trials involving medical and devices therapies that have shown improved survival, the overall mortality remains high. Therapeutic intervention studies involving transplantation and revascularization concluded that patients with viable myocardium can ...

An Investigation for the Optimal Timing of a Cleft Palate Repair

The goals of palatoplasty are to provide an intact palate and to create a normally functioning velopharyngeal mechanism as early as possible without hazard to other aspects of health and development. Two major criteria by which the success of cleft palate surgery is determined are subsequent speech development and facial ...

Prospective Study of Scoliosis in Children With Cerebral Palsy

Bracing severe neuromuscular scoliotic curves rarely serves as definitive treatment, thus most progressive curves require surgical intervention in order to sustain or improve sitting (or ambulatory) abilities. Surgery is a demanding intervention for these patients, with variable functional gains. Controversy persists regarding indications for surgery, timing, and technique. Concerns about ...

Modulation by Sex Hormones of Inflammation and Susceptibility to Pseudomonas Aeruginosa in Cystic Fibrosis Airways

Most CF patients die because of chronic lung infection with Ps aer, chronic inflammation and progressive airway damage. Agents that reduce inflammation or enhance airway antibacterial defences hold potential therapeutic value. Therefore, there is considerable current interest in identifying and stimulating the activities of these agents. Although sex hormones are ...

Ocular Blood Flow in Early Glaucoma Patients Before and After Treatment With Dorzolamide

High intraocular pressure (IOP) is the major risk factor for glaucoma. Lowering intraocular pressure is still the only accepted form of treatment for glaucoma. Over the past decade, epidemiological and experimental evidence suggested that impaired ocular blood flow is an important risk factor with an important role in the pathogenesis ...

Differential Gene Expression of Liver Tissue and Blood From Individuals With Chronic Viral Hepatitis

The objective of this study is to identify genes that are specifically up or down regulated in chronic viral hepatitis and autoimmune liver disease and then to examine how these expression patterns relate (if at all) to clinical outcome. The expression pattern of thousands of genes should provide extremely powerful ...
