A distinctive segmental glomerular abnormality is confined to the region of the tubular opening. The hypothesis was that this followed prolapse of the tuft into the tubule. Analysis was made of 39 renal biopsy specimens with acute postinfective glomerulonephritis, later material from ten cases, four specimens from three women with pre-eclampsia, and 21(More)
BACKGROUND Accounts of renal pathological findings in infective endocarditis are mostly based on studies from many years ago. We reviewed a group of patients with infective endocarditis in the light of modern concepts of renal pathology, including the largest reported series of renal biopsies in this condition. METHODS Renal tissue was available for(More)
In a 10-year prospective study of 6,256 patients (5,812 males, 444 females) with permanent pacemaker, 25 had presented with features of venous obstruction such as pain, swelling or dilated superficial veins of face, upper limb(s) or upper chest wall without congestive heart failure. When subjected to contrast venography, 22 (0.35%) of the cases demonstrated(More)
The in vitro activity of ertapenem against bacterial pathogens isolated from patients with moderate to severe complicated intra-abdominal, complicated skin/skin structure, acute pelvic, or complicated urinary tract infection or community acquired pneumonia was compared to ceftriaxone and piperacillin-tazobactam and related to known plasma concentrations of(More)
An 18-year-old man presenting with paraplegia due to spinal epidural infiltration at D6-D7 underwent laminectomy and spinal decompression followed by near-complete resolution of neurological symptoms; but this resolution was followed by progressively enlarging cervical lymph nodes. Leucocytosis, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, a marked(More)
A technique is presented of securing the cartilaginous nasal septum using titanium mini-plates in the repair of a complex open comminuted type I nasoethmoid fracture, with internal impaction of the external cartilaginous nose. This technique allows primary skin closure and obviates the need for external metal-work and the attendant potential complications.
