Brain glucose metabolism was investigated with PET and [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose, before and after a bifrontal stereotactic leukotomy in a 37 year old woman with refractory obsessive-compulsive disorder. A bilateral decrease in glucose metabolism was found in the orbital frontal cortex after psychosurgery. Glucose metabolism was decreased to a lesser degree(More)
Transfusion during the treatment of postpartum hemorrhages is rare. It always occurs in complex situations: failure of the initial manipulations or cataclysmic bleeding.
