In order to examine the effectiveness and safety of hydraulic resistance strength training in young males, 26 pre-pubertal males (mean age = 8.2 +/- 1.3 yr) completed a 14-wk strength training study. Subjects were evaluated before and after the 14-wk experimental period for pubertal state (Tanner's sexual maturity rating, serum testosterone, and serum(More)
BACKGROUND The childhood-onset cerebral form of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy, a demyelinating disorder of the central nervous system, leads to a vegetative state and death within 3-5 years once clinical symptoms are detectable. The hypothesis to be tested was whether bone-marrow transplantation can over an extended period of time halt the inexorable(More)
1. This study aimed at enhancing the clearance of experimental hydrostatic pulmonary oedema in dogs using hypertonic-hyperoncotic solution (HHS) and furosemide. 2. Anaesthetized dogs (n = 20) were mechanically ventilated with a positive end-expiratory pressure of 10 cmH2O (1.0 kPa). 3. Hydrostatic pulmonary oedema was induced by inflating a balloon inserted(More)
The known sensitivity of joint scintigraphy in following the course of fracture healing caused the authors to believe that this radiologic technique might be valuable in the management of osteochondritis dissecans (OCD). Accordingly, 99mTc-diphosphonate joint scintigraphy was used on 18 patients with OCD of the knee. The average age was 13 1/2 years. The(More)
The importance of correct handling of samples for blood gas analysis was studied in 100 patients. Sixty minutes storage in iced water lowered pH by 0.02 pH-units. Storage at room temperature caused considerable changes in PCO2 and PO2 (+0.45 kPa and -1.05 kPa). Air bubbles in the syringes increased PO2 if not expelled within 30 s. Thirty minutes storage(More)
A prospective study was made of clinical symptoms, liver function and pregnancy prognosis in women with cholestasis of pregnancy (CP). We used several positive and negative criteria to allow a clinical definition of CP as itching limited to time of pregnancy with or without laboratory evidence of liver dysfunction. The incidence during 1971-74 was 1.5%(More)
