The chemical processes responsible for production of photochemical oxidants within the troposphere have been the subject of laboratory and field study throughout the last three decades. During the same period, models to simulate the atmospheric chemistry, transport and deposition of ozone (O(3)) from individual urban sources and from regions have been(More)
Over the past 14 years, 146 patients with penetrating colon trauma were managed by primary repair with/without resection (PR, n = 55), and by diverting colostomy (DC, n = 91). These groups did not differ in terms of age, ISS (Injury Severity Scale), PATI (Penetrating Abdominal Trauma Index), a-AIS (abdominal Abbreviated Injury Scale), or preoperative(More)
During the 17 years 1955 through 1971, 20 gravid patients underwent cholecystectomy. This represented 1 case for every 1259 deliveries (0.079% of 25,189 deliveries). The primary indication for surgery was repeated attacks of gallbladder colic. Generally, surgery was performed between the 10th and the 20th week of gestation. There was one spontaneous(More)
For children requiring mechanical circulatory support as a bridge to cardiac transplantation in North America, options previously were limited to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) or centrifugal pump ventricular assist, both of which were suitable for only very short term application and were associated with significant complications and(More)
Nine patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) were administered four doses of pooled transfer factor obtained from the lymphocytes of three healthy controls and three homosexuals with stable lymphadenopathy and serum antibody to the human immunodeficiency virus. Before receiving transfer factor, all patients exhibited anergy to skin test(More)
OBJECTIVE Early postoperative hyperlactatemia is seen in some children after surgical repair of secundum atrial septal defect despite apparently normal cardiac output. The objective of the study was to investigate the intraoperative risk factors for hyperlactatemia in patients undergoing atrial septal defect repair. METHODS AND RESULTS A retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intracranial lipomas are uncommon congenital malformations that most often are asymptomatic. A rare subset of intracranial lipomas arises within the vestibule of the inner ear, which can cause sensorineural hearing loss. We present the CT and MR imaging characteristics of lipomas within the vestibule of the inner ear and propose a(More)
