The cutaneous laser Doppler device (LDF) was employed to determine its usefulness in differentiating the circulation of the feet in normal subjects from that in patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans. It is shown that the laser Doppler frequencies correlated well with results from venous occlusion plethysmography, which measured volume rate of flow.(More)
Neutral phospholipid vesicles (liposomes) were loaded with 0.5 mCi (18.5 MBq) indium-111 and administered to 24 patients with various types of cancer. The median diameter of the liposomes was 77 nm, and lipid dose was 0.78-6.25 mg/kg. Scans obtained 24 and 48 hours after injection of In-111 liposomes showed gradual blood clearance with homogeneous uptake in(More)
Twenty-four patients with proven primary and/or metastatic cancer received single intravenous injections of phospholipid vesicles containing 0.5 mCi of Indium-111. Gamma camera scintigraphy 1 to 72 hours later visualized tumors in 22 patients (92%), including carcinomas of breast, lung, colon, prostate, kidney, cervix, thyroid, and soft tissue sarcoma,(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine a standard set of conditions for detecting peripheral arteriosclerosis with ischemia. One series of studies was done to determine the influence of room temperature on peripheral flow in healthy subjects and patients with peripheral vascular disease. The room temperature was varied from 30 degrees to 35 degrees C.(More)
The thoracic outlet syndromes of the upper extremities consist of many disorders. The most important two are the costoclavicular syndrome (compression of neurovascular structures between the clavicle and the first rib) and the scalenus anticus syndrome (compression of these structures within the scalene triangle). Congenital abnormalities of the clavicle,(More)
Peritrate (pentaerythritol tetranitrate), a nitrate coronary vasodilator, was capable of significantly increasing perfusion and function in ischemic heart muscle. The A2 image-processing computer with software developed by Burow was used to evaluate regional perfusion and segmental wall motion in six patients with ischemic areas in the myocardium. These(More)
A series of noninvasive vascular tests was performed on groups of normal individuals (Group I) and on patients with chronic deep vein thrombophlebitis (Group II) to determine the relative specificity and sensitivity of the tests. Results indicate that the simpler tests, requiring a minimum of equipment and technique are as effective as certain of the more(More)
The purpose of this paper is to show, by noninvasive measurements, previously undocumented effects on cardiac work of the nitrate coronary vasodilator Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate (Peritrate). The chew-and-swallow 40-mg tablets of this drug were given to 10 patients of type II AHA classification. The Diastolic Time Tension Index/Systolic Time Tension Index(More)
