Objective: To determine the incidence of central catheter-related bloodstream infection (CR-BSI) and to compare patient and catheter characteristics of those with and without CR-BSI from a clinically suspected subgroup. Secondly, to assess the efficacy of the acridine orange leucocyte cytospin test (AOLC) as a rapid in situ method of detecting central(More)
To evaluate the feasibility of the use of serial ultrasound measurements of cervical length, membrane protrusion, and dilatation to discriminate between the competent and the incompetent cervix, 107 at-risk patients and 30 control subjects were examined prospectively. Patients were divided into five groups based on treatment and method of diagnosis.(More)
Left ventricular myocardial blood flow and metabolic parameters were studied in dogs with severe heart failure induced by rapid ventricular pacing. The impact of early administration of enalapril was also evaluated. Seventeen dogs were randomly assigned in a blinded fashion to receive enalapril at a dose of 10 mg orally per day or a matching placebo(More)
OBJECTIVES A prospective evaluation was performed to define the role of systematic transition zone (TZ) biopsies in prostates larger than 50 cc. METHODS From August 1994 to July 1997, 213 consecutive patients referred because of an abnormal digital rectal examination or prostate-specific antigen greater than 4.0 ng/mL had a calculated prostate size(More)
Importance Clinicians rely heavily on fluorodeoxyglucose F18-labeled positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) imaging to evaluate lung nodules suspicious for cancer. We evaluated the performance of FDG-PET for the diagnosis of malignancy in differing populations with varying cancer prevalence. Objective To determine the performance of FDG-PET/computed(More)
