British Heart Journal
E StraumannH R Jenzer


To identify valvar heart disease in patients with chronic uraemia by conventional and colour coded Doppler echocardiography. Case series of an unselected group of 62 patients with end stage renal failure. Centre for haemodialysis in a referral hospital in Switzerland. 62 patients on chronic haemodialysis. Frequency of structural and functional valve abnormalities and their relation to clinical findings. Structural changes were seen in 40 (64%) of 62 patients after 50 months (range 3-178 months) on haemodialysis. The mitral annulus and aortic cusps were thickened in 25 (40%) and in 34 (55%) patients respectively. Aortic stenosis was present in eight (mean (SD) age 60.5 (8.5) years), with a maximal instantaneous pressure gradient of 41 (14) mm Hg. Aortic regurgitation was seen in eight, mitral regurgitation in seven, and mitral stenosis in three patients. Patients with aortic stenosis had been on haemodialysis for significantly longer than the remaining patients (101 (43) v 46 (43) months, p = 0.01) and had significantly higher concentrations of serum alkaline phosphatase (176 (89) v 117 (47) IU/l, p less than 0.01) and of parathyroid hormone (54 (66) v 19 (29) ng/ml, p less than 0.02). Patients on long-term haemodialysis had an ...Continue Reading

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response.
