The anatomy of the internal mammary vessels is poorly understood and thought to be unreliable clinically for use as a recipient vein in free-tissue-transfer breast reconstruction. This study of 10 fresh cadaver thoracic cavities demonstrated by anatomic and dye resection studies that the internal mammary veins become smaller (< or = 2 mm) distally (fourth(More)
Liver involvement with Hodgkin's disease is determined at our institution by a combination of wedge biopsy and needle biopsy at the time of staging laparotomy. This retrospective study was undertaken to determine whether the wedge or the needle biopsy method is the more accurate. All staging laparotomies (n = 116) during the period 1972-1986 were reviewed.(More)
Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy is widely used in the evaluation of nodular thyroid disease. From January 1979 to May 1983, 100 patients underwent FNA biopsy at Wake Forest University Medical Center for evaluation of nodular thyroid disease. Forty-six underwent immediate thyroidectomy based upon clinical and cytologic criteria. Fifty-three patients(More)
Pyrophosphate-dependent phosphofructokinase from the facultative anaerobic bacterium Propionibacterium freudenreichii and from the mung bean Phaseolus aureus has been purified to homogeneity. Potential utilization of carbohydrate substrate analogues for each enzyme was initially screened by using Fourier transform 31P NMR at pH 8 and 25 degrees C and(More)
