The clinical consequences of prolonged storage of red cells have not been established. In this pilot study, we evaluated whether it would be feasible to provide a continuous supply of red cells stored <8 days. In addition, we examined the potential benefits attributed to "fresh" as compared to standard red cells in 66 critically ill and cardiac surgical(More)
BACKGROUND This case series summarizes our observations of hemolytic reactions after the administration of large amounts of intravenous immune (gamma) globulin (IVIG). STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Cases of hemolysis were identified by a decrease in hemoglobin not otherwise explained following IVIG administration. RESULTS Sixteen cases were identified over a(More)
Inflammation of the fat in lupus erythematosus also known as lupus erythematosus profundus (panniculitis) is a rare clinical entity. As the presenting feature of lupus, it is even more unusual. In this report, we describe an elderly woman who presented with an orbital mass infiltrate as the initial manifestation of lupus that had the classical histological(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if there are any pathologic or technical differences between laser-assisted uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (LAUP) and electrocautery-assisted uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (EAUP). DESIGN A prospective randomized in vivo trial in an appropriate animal species. RESULTS We found no gross difference in healing between the palates treated with(More)
An 82-year-old woman had experienced progressive enlargement of a long-standing left upper lid mass for 3 weeks. The superior visual field was compromised secondary to mechanical ptosis from this lid lesion. Computed tomography showed a large lid mass with a low density signal, similar to intraorbital fat. The tumor was completely excised. Histopathologic(More)
INTRODUCTION Mapping of different foci in multifocal papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) has previously not been done as it is difficult to do so when thyroid specimens are serially sectioned transversely (ie, parallel to the horizontal plane). In this study, thyroidectomy specimens were serially sectioned coronally (ie, parallel to the largest surface of the(More)
INTRODUCTION A study of immunohistopathologic and cytohistopathologic changes of the parabasal/basal layers in the differentiated squamous intraepithelial neoplasia (DSIN) may elucidate the histopathogenesis and reveal changes aiding early diagnosis and grading of the lesion. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 55 consecutive resection specimens of(More)
We hypothesize that cystic structures in metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) develop along the framework of lymphatic channels. To investigate this phenomenon, different categories of PTC were immunostained for D2-40 and TTF1. In this study, reactivity for D2-40 was considered as positive when there is membranous staining as often seen in lymphatic(More)
