Anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), or Müllerian inhibitory substance, is a hormone that is best known for its production by fetal testes in mammals and as the inhibitor of Müllerian (paramesonephric) duct development in males. However, following the development of the Müllerian ducts into the oviduct, uterus, and upper vagina in female mammals, the ovaries(More)
A system for defining renal scarring on ultrasound is proposed and compared with DMSA scintigraphy. Renal scarring was assessed with ultrasound in children following urinary tract infection (UTI) using the following criteria: (1) proximity of sinus echoes to cortical surface; (2) loss of pyramids; (3) irregularity of outline; (4) loss of definition of(More)
We have studied, in 37 adult patients, the anatomy of the sacral extradural (caudal) space using magnetic resonance imaging. The sacrococcygeal membrane (SCM) could not be detected in 10.8% of patients. The maximum depth of the caudal space adjacent to the SCM was beneath the upper third of the SCM in more than 90% of patients (mean depth 4.6 mm; range(More)
A cross-sectional study of bone density involving 30 patients who had undergone orchidectomy and para-aortic radiotherapy for Stage I seminoma of the testis, has been performed. Bone density measurements were made of the whole body, lumbar spine and hips, including all irradiated areas. Comparison was made with previously obtained standard sex and age(More)
During 16,070 consultations in general practice 70 adults complained of difficulty with hearing. A simple poster displayed in the waiting areas together with an accompanying leaflet almost doubled the incidence of presentation of loss of hearing. Nevertheless, more than half of those complaining had failed to notice the prominently displayed personally(More)
Fourteen 15-kg hand-raised lambs were subjected to a control treatment or to one 3-hr, -5 C cold shock each day for 4 days. The greatest increase in heart rate occurred at the second hour of cold shock, when ambient temperatures were lowest. This increase became successively smaller each day. The greatest rectal temperature decreases occurred after 3 hr of(More)
