OBJECTIVE To compare pregnancy rates and the incidence of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) in donor stimulation cycles where final maturation of oocytes was induced with recombinant hCG or GnRH agonist. DESIGN Retrospective, cohort study. SETTING Private infertility clinic. PATIENT(S) A total of 1171 egg donors performing 2077 stimulation(More)
AIM To compare donor and recipient outcome after inducing the final oocyte maturation with hCG or GnRH agonist in GnRH-antagonist treated oocyte donation (OD) cycles. METHODS Two-hundred fifty-seven oocyte donors were enrolled to participate in a clinical trial in a private fertility centre. After stimulation with 225 IU rFSH and Cetrorelix 0.25 mg/day,(More)
Clinical observations on peridural anesthesia were made in 466 patients. The spread of various concentrations of anesthetics injected into the lumbar and caudal peridural space were followed by plotting analgesia-time profiles. Onset of anesthesia and the volume required to provide one dermatome of anesthesia varied little among different anesthetics given(More)
Thiopentone was administered in bolus doses (1.5–3.0 mg/kg) 26 times to 18 neurosurgical patients undergoing craniotomy. Intracranial pressure and blood pressure responses to thiopentone were evaluated and the cerebral perfusion pressure calculated. Thiopentone given 21 times to treat chronic or acutely elevated intracranial pressure significantly reduced(More)
In electrocorticographic recordings obtained during enflurane anesthesia, abnormal electrical activity was elicited with light and moderate levels of enflurane anesthesia and suppressed at a level of deep surgical anesthesia; Paco2 was constant at 34 +/- 2 torr throughout. Enflurane may prove to be of value in determining foci of abnormal electrical(More)
