PURPOSE To determine the relative frequencies of persistence patterns in treated pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) and to assess whether there is a difference in retreatment outcomes between PAVMs persisting via recanalization and those persisting via reperfusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between May 2003 and May 2011, 23 patients (10 male, 13(More)
OBJECTIVE Sleep characteristics detected by electroencephalography (EEG) may be predictive of neurological recovery and rehabilitation outcomes after traumatic brain injury (TBI). We sought to determine whether sleep features were associated with greater access to rehabilitation therapies and better functional outcomes after severe TBI. METHODS We(More)
Congenital laryngeal atresia is a rare malformation almost always incompatible with life. Prenatal sonographic diagnosis of this condition has been described on five occasions and all occurred in singleton pregnancies. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of prenatal diagnosis of laryngeal atresia in a twin pregnancy. A monochorionic diamniotic(More)
This paper reports the only 6 cases of ureteric obstruction apparently caused by the gravid uterus diagnosed at the Mercy Maternity Hospital in the past 17 years, during which time there were 82,836 confinements. In 3 of the 6 cases there was clear radiographic evidence that the level of obstruction was at the pelvic brim. The rapid resolution of the(More)
Non-immune hydrops fetalis (NIHF) has become more common than immune hydrops fetalis as a cause of fetal hydrops and its contribution to the total perinatal mortality rate has increased from 0.1% to 3.0% for the 10 years to 1979. A case is reported where an antenatal ultrasonograph performed within 24 hours of delivery showed hydrops was not present,(More)
Three cases of twin pregnancy complicated by an acardiac twin are reported. This is a rare abnormality of twins. A vascular communication exists between the twins and the usually normal twin or so called 'pump' twin may develop cardiac failure as a result of perfusion of the abnormal twin. The acardiac twin is, generally, grossly abnormal with reduction(More)
