A 65-year-old Japanese woman with dilated cardiomyopathy, hypothyroidism and refractory sustained ventricular tachycardia experienced a near-death hypoglycemic syncope. The attack seemed to be induced by a high level of serum insulin, probably due to cibenzoline and by concomitant use of an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI). Additionally, decreased food intake because of a severe toothache may have contributed to the deterioration of her condition. This case warns cardiologistsdoi:10.1536/jhj.42.255 pmid:11384085 fatcat:dvme2wiquvdhfa3gvdyhlmktdq

Therefore, the possibility of a hypoglycemic attack associated with these drugs should be explained to patients who are in poor condition. (Jpn Heart J 2001; 42: 255-259)

ypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is functionally characterized by normal or supernormal left ventricular systolic function and impaired left ventricular diastolic function, and the severity of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction is related to exercise capacity, clinical symptoms and even prognosis. 1-3 The impairment of left ventricular diastolic function in patients with HCM is closely related to intracellular Ca 2+ overload and is also known to be frequency dependent. 4 Therefore, calciumdoi:10.1253/jcj.65.531 pmid:11407736 fatcat:a6ivef5uv5d6hmh63hmqzodcw4

However, the effect of calcium antagonists is often insufficient in many patients with HCM. The class Ia antiarrhythmic drug, cibenzoline, is known to have a calcium channel-blocking property, 5,6 and it has recently been reported that cibenzoline can attenuate the left ventricular pressure gradient (LVPG) and also improve the transmitral Doppler flow patterns in patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). 7-9 However, it is unknown whether this beneficial effect on left ventricular diastolic function is due to a direct effect of cibenzoline or the result of attenuation of the LVPG. We therefore investigated whether cibenzoline directly improves The effect of cibenzoline on left ventricular diastolic function was investigated in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Before and 2 h after an oral administration of 200 mg of cibenzoline, echocardiographic, apexcardiographic and gated radionuclide angiographic studies were performed in 12 patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) and 7 with hypertrophic nonobstructive cardiomyopathy (HNCM). After administration of cibenzoline, the left ventricular pressure gradient decreased from 96±33 mmHg to 29±22 mmHg (<0.0001). Fractional shortening decreased from 53.3±7.5 to 45.4±6.2% (p=0.0008) in patients with HOCM and from 49.9±8.7 to 40.9±7.5% (p=0.0039) in patients with HNCM. On the other hand, E-wave velocity increased and A-wave velocity decreased in both groups. The time between the second heart sound and O point was shortened from 253±53 to 176±21 ms (p<0.0001) in patients with HOCM and from 245±54 to 185±44 ms (p=0.0050) in patients with HNCM. The time to peak filling rate was shortened from 248±79 to 190±40 ms (p=0.0072) in patients with HOCM and from 218±33 to 163±26 ms (p=0.0052) in patients with HNCM. These results indicate that in patients with HCM, cibenzoline suppresses left ventricular systolic function, but can markedly improve left ventricular diastolic dysfunction through its direct action.

Background Some patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) develop pneumothorax. However, the characteristics of pneumothorax in patients with IPF have not been elucidated. The purpose of this study was to clarify the clinical course, actual management, and treatment outcomes of pneumothorax in patients with IPF. Methods Consecutive patients with IPF who were admitted for pneumothorax between January 2008 and December 2018 were included. The success rates of treatment for pneumothorax,doi:10.1186/s12890-020-01370-w pmid:33407311 fatcat:hkjcdtd5m5bhvblxxote5uthcu

During the first admission, 15 patients (41.7%) did not receive chest tube drainage, but 21 (58.3%) did. Of the 21 patients, 8 (38.1%) received additional therapy after chest drainage. The respective treatment success rates were 86.6% and 66.7% in patients who underwent observation only vs chest tube drainage. The respective hospital mortality rates were 13.3% and 38.0%. The total pneumothorax recurrence rate after hospital discharge was 34.6% (n = 9). Conclusions Pneumothorax in patients with IPF was difficult to treat successfully, had a relatively poor prognosis, and showed a high recurrence rate.
Both magnetization and coercivity should be controlled on BaFe12O19 for its usage in magnetic recording. Preparation of BaFe12O19 was studied in citrate route by changing the kinds of iron source. Stoichiometric mixtures of iron compounds with Ba(NO3)2 were dissolved in distilled water. They were mixed with citric acid aqueous solution and then condensed on a hot plate to their gelatinous products. Their prefired products below 450°C were pelletized and then fired in a temperature range betweendoi:10.2109/jcersj2.117.15 fatcat:4iuohhvmw5h63ninbqbllqprqy

Three tridentate extractants and three masking reagents including O, N, and S donors have been developed and their properties are compared and discussed. The extractants are N,N,N′,N′-tetraoctyl-diglycolamide (TODGA), methylimino-N,N′-dioctylacetamide (MIDOA) and N,N,N′,N′-tetraoctyl-thiodiglycolamide (TDGA(C8)) together with masking agents having the same central frame but with short alkyl chains. The results of the present study indicate that TODGA can extract mainly hard acid metalsdoi:10.15261/serdj.26.21 fatcat:rjnminc3jzhdlotenrnfbwhmfu

Some spectrophotometric studies (UV-vis., IR, and NMR) indicate the stoichiometry and the effect of donor atoms for metal-complexation. The ΔHf values, the heat generation during complex formation, obtained by chemical calculation by DFT theory show a reverse-correlation with their extraction ability. Introduction Recently, tridentate extractants and ligands have been developed and studied worldwide [1-6]. Tridentate ligands can complex effectively with metals with 6 and 9 coordination sites with 1 : 2 and 1 : 3 metal-ligand complex stochiometries, rather than monodentate and bidentate extractants. The strong extractabilities and high complexation abilities for metals by tridentate ligands have been reported in many papers [1, 4, 6] . One of the most important tridentate extractant is TODGA (N,N,N′,N′-tetraoctyl-diglycolamide)  . This compound has three oxygen donors (two carbonyl oxygen donors and an ether oxygen atom) attached with diamide groups outside of the central frame. Based on the HSAB principle , oxygen donors are preferred for hard acid metals, metals belonging groups 2-4 in the periodic table. TODGA can dissolve in n-dodecane and shows a very high distribution ratio (D) for actinides (An) and lanthanides (Ln) from nitric acid. Therefore, TODGA is a useful extractant for metal separation from high level radioactive liquid waste [8-12]. TODGA is composed of C, H, O, N atoms and complete gasification takes place on combustion, thus producing less secondary waste. N and S donor extractants, which are similar to TODGA, can be produced by substitution of the O atom at the ether position in TODGA. The N-compound with a methyl group attached is termed as MIDOA (methylimino-N,N′-dioctylacetamide) and the S-compound is TDGA (N,N,N′,N′-tetraoctyl-thiodiglycolamide) [6, 13-16]. These extractants can be synthesized by changing the initial materials to methylimino-diacetic acid or thiodiacetic acid from the diglycol acid of TODGA. Both N and S donors are soft donors and complexing well with soft acid metals used in all calculations. Input coordinates were obtained from X-ray crystal structure data available from the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC). These calculations were terminated when the forces are smaller than the cutoff value over several cycles even though the displacement was larger than the cutoff value. The DFT calculations were performed using the Gaussian03 program package. The heats of formations of the metal complexes, metal ions, extractants, and anions (Hf,metal complex , H f,metal , H f,TDGA , and H f,anion ) were obtained from these calculations. The ΔH f values were obtained by subtracting the sum of H f,metal , H f,TDGA , and H f,anion from H f,metal complex and were compared with the information obtained from the solvent extraction experiments (i.e., the apparent extraction constants). Results and Discussion Matal extraction by three extractants Results on metal extraction using TODGA, MIDOA and TDGA are reported elsewhere [26,   . In this work, the extraction data are reconfirmed, obtained under the same conditions, new data added and plotted in Figure 2 (a)-(f). In these figures, the results by the three extractants are compared. Figure 2(a) shows the results for Sr, Nd,
