In 1972--1973, 785 symptom-free men, aged 40 to 49 years, without target organ damage, with systolic blood pressures between 150 and 179 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure below 110 mm Hg, were assigned at random to one of two groups: (406 to a drug treatment group and 379 to a control group) for a five-year controlled drug treatment trial to evaluate the(More)
Line integral convolution (LIC) is a powerful texture-based technique for visualizing vector fields. Due to the high computational expense of generating 3D textures and the difficulties of effectively displaying the result, LIC has most commonly been used to depict vector fields in 2D or over a surface in 3D. We propose new methods for more effective volume(More)
In this paper, we present an interactive texture-based method for visualizing three-dimensional unsteady vector fields. The visualization method uses a sparse and global representation of the flow, such that it does not suffer from the same perceptual issues as is the case for visualizing dense representations. The animation is made by injecting a(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The Chiari I malformation, characterized by tonsils extending below the foramen magnum, has increased CSF velocities compared with those in healthy subjects. Measuring the effect of tonsillar herniation on CSF flow in humans is confounded by interindividual variation. The goal of this study was to determine the effect of herniated(More)
The Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial (MRFIT) showed that diuretic treatment of hypertensive men with certain ECG abnormalities at entry was associated with an increased coronary heart disease mortality in the special-intervention group as compared with the usual-care group. Following the same criteria for resting ECG abnormalities as in MRFIT, The(More)
In this randomized, primary prevention trial of 1,232 high-risk, middle-aged Oslo men, advice during 5 years about diet and smoking brought about a significant reduction (47%) in incidence of first major coronary heart disease (CHD) events in the intervention group compared with controls. Data are presented indicating that the net difference of 10% in serum(More)
Levels of serum lipids, uric acid and body weight are reported from a controlled trial of drug treatment of middle-aged men with uncomplicated mild hypertension. The results come from 300 men after three years of follow up; 150 men in the treatment group and 150 men in the control group. The treatment has been standardized starting with hydrochlorothiazide(More)
1 The report presents the effects on blood lipids and uric acid of six different antihypertensive drugs, used alone and of five different combinations of two antihypertensive drugs. 2 Prazosin significantly lowered serum LDL + VLDL cholesterol and total triglycerides. Atenolol lowered LDL + VLDL cholesterol to a smaller but significant extent. Both pindolol(More)
Serum glucose levels, triglyceride levels, and body weight are reported from a controlled drug trial in men, aged 40 to 49, with uncomplicated mild hypertension. The drug treatment started with hydrochlorothiazide alone, and methyldopa was added when necessary. If side effects occurred, methyldopa was replaced by propranolol. No detailed advice about diet,(More)
