    Abstract. Familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) is a rare and severe hereditary form of amyloidosis, due to nervous deposits of a genetic variant transthyretin produced by the liver and characterized by both sensorimotor and autonomic neuropathy. Left ventricular systolic dysfunction is rare,...

    Background: Alcohol consumption is associated with an increased incidence of hypertension and stroke, but the triggering mechanisms are unclear. In animals, alcohol causes activation of the sympathetic nervous system and also stimulates the release of corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which...

    Abstract. To investigate the role of the cardiac sympathetic nervous system in left ventricular remodelling, 50 patients with first-time acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and patency of the infarct-related artery after reperfusion underwent quantitative iodine-123 metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG)...

    The main effect of upper thoracic sympathectomy is sudomotor. To abolish sweating of the palms, T 2 ganglionectomy (often with the addition of T 3) was invariably performed. To prevent axillary sweating, additional T 4 ablation was recommended. Sympathectomy produces a vasodilatatory cutaneous...
