BACKGROUND Ultrasound is receiving growing interest for improving the guidance of needle insertion in epidural anesthesia. Defining a paramedian ultrasound scanning technique would be helpful for correctly identifying the vertebral level. Finding surrogate measures of the depth of the epidural space may also improve the ease of scanning. METHODS We(More)
Polyclonal IgM rheumatoid factors (RF) from ten patients with rheumatoid arthritis and six monoclonal IgM RF were isolated from monomeric IgG affinity columns and studied for their reactivity with the entire CH3 domain of IgG synthesized as overlapping 7-mers using a pin-ELISA assay. All ten polyclonal IgM RF showed similar profiles of reactivity which(More)
A study to determine the incidence of alkaline reflux gastritis in forty postoperative duodenal ulcer patients has been presented. Since the majority of patients had evidence of gastritis, the precise role that gastritis plays in the production of symptoms is discussed but needs further clarification. It is suggested that the presence of gastritis may only(More)
Patients with Klippel-Trenaunay (KT) syndrome have a complex constellation of anomalies that includes cutaneous capillary malformation (usually on an affected limb), abnormal development of the deep and superficial veins, and limb asymmetry, usually enlargement. Mixed vascular malformations may be present and include capillary, venous, arterial, and(More)
Gallbladder ablation by means of injection of hot contrast medium was attempted in 13 dogs. Room temperature contrast medium was injected into the gallbladders of two additional dogs (controls). After midline laparotomy was performed to expose the gallbladder, temperature probes were placed in the liver adjacent to the gallbladder, and on the surface and in(More)
m f c e CARDIAC SURGICAL PATIENTS require vigilant monitoring of metabolic status before, during, and after cariopulmonary bypass (CPB). Serial arterial blood gases allow or the simultaneous assessment and treatment of metabolic bnormalities caused by underlying medical conditions or hyoperfusion. In this review, a patient is described who was ound to have(More)
