BACKGROUND The purposes of this study were to evaluate the comparative accuracy of dobutamine echocardiography and quantitative rest-redistribution 201Tl tomography in the prediction of recovery of function after revascularization and to assess the relation of contractile reserve to thallium uptake. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-four patients with stable(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the comparative accuracy of myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE), quantitative rest-redistribution thallium-201 (Tl-201) tomography and low and high dose (up to 40 microg/kg body weight per min) dobutamine echocardiography (DE) in identifying myocardial hibernation. BACKGROUND Myocardial contrast echocardiography can(More)
Isolated, isovolumic rat hearts, perfused by Krebs-Henseleit buffer at constant coronary flow rate, were used to explore the hypothesis that endogenous cardiac glutathione provides protection against myocardial dysfunction associated with short periods of ischemia. Experimental animals were depleted of cardiac glutathione to 35% of control levels by(More)
Numerous investigators have alluded to an association of cancer of the endometrium and breast. There is no available information relating the histologic forms of cancer of the endometrium to breast cancer. We found ten cases of adenosquamous carcinoma of the endometrium in one tumor registry in a ten year period, 1967-1977. Five of these cases also had(More)
The metabolism of 3H-androstenedione (delta 4-A) and 3H-estriol (E3) was studied in 12 human breast tumors. Part of each tumor was analyzed for estrogen receptor content. Aliquots of tumor homogenates were incubated for 2 hr separately with 3H-delta 4-A and 3H-E3 in the presence of appropriate cofactors. No distinct differences emerged in the profiles of(More)
Five cases of polycystic disease of the ovaries are presented; in four diagnosis of "adenoacanthoma" was made from an endometrial biopsy. The age range was 24-37. The fifth had been called "atypical glandular hyperplasia." In four of the five salpingoophorectomy and hysterectomy were performed, and the hysterectomy specimens showed no evidence of(More)
This is a transmission electron microscopy study of peritoneal mesothelium and surface cells covering the ovary. One thousand two hundred cells derived from 22 samples of peritoneum and 1,200 derived from 22 samples of ovary were compared for cell size, length-to-diameter ratio, and distribution and complexity of surface villi. Cilia were looked for. Other(More)
BACKGROUND The authors conducted a Phase II study to evaluate the activity and toxicity of weekly docetaxel in second-line therapy for nonsmall cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). METHODS Patients with documented recurrent or refractory NSCLC, previously treated with no more than one chemotherapy regimen, were eligible if they had a performance status (PS) of(More)
This study was an examination of ovaries in the age group day 1-30 years. One hundred eight cystic epithelial inclusions cysts were found in 40 ovaries in the age group of day 1-7 years. All were lined by cuboidal and low columnar epithelium. A total of 81 cystic epithelial inclusions were found in 58 ovaries in individuals aged 12-30 years. Thirty four(More)
