Because of its high caloric density, intravenous fat emulsions have been suggested as useful sources of calories and essential fatty acids in patients with serious heart disease in whom fluid restriction must be closely monitored. Previous studies in the experimental animal have suggested a myocardial depressant effect of intravenous fat emulsions at high(More)
A group of patients with failed angioplasty who then required emergency coronary bypass was compared with a historically matched group of patients who had had elective bypass grafting. The two groups were well matched in age, sex, ejection fraction, and New York Heart Association classification and in the incidence of diabetes and hypertension. Significant(More)
One hundred consecutive adult patients undergoing cardiac operations at a single institution were evaluated preoperatively with regard to their nutritional status. Anthropometric, biochemical, and immunologic characteristics were evaluated in addition to cardiac biopsy specimens to determine right atrial glycogen concentration. Although some positive(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the diagnostic quality of paper prints with film copies in a sample of observers who were trying to detect small coin lesions on radiographs of a phantom. MATERIALS AND METHODS The phantom consisted of 60 high-contrast and 60 low-contrast test objects, half of which had holes in them. Diameter and depth of(More)
Vasoactive drugs were infused through catheters in the right atrium and then the left atrium of 34 patients who required either vasopressor or vasodilator support following cardiac operation to determine if the route of infusion affected the aortic blood concentration of these agents. Drugs were given through the right atrium for one hour and then the left(More)
The mineralocorticoid receptor knock-out mouse (MR–/–), resembling inborn pseudohypoaldosteronism, dies 8–12 days after birth in circulatory failure with all the signs of terminal volume contraction. The present study aimed to examine the functional defects in the kidney and colon in detail and to attempt to rescue these mice. In neonatal (nn) MR–/– the(More)
PURPOSE Detection of pulmonary metastases is still a challenging task for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It was the aim of this study to evaluate the potential of a free-breathing move-during-scan turbo inversion recovery magnitude sequence for the detection of pulmonary nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sensitivities and positive-predictive values of(More)
Two intravenous fat emulsions (Liposyn 10%, Abbott Laboratories, North Chicago, IL, and Intralipid 10%, Cutter Laboratories, Berkeley, CA) were evaluated in 13 adult patients following cardiopulmonary bypass procedures in a randomized, prospective, double-blind study to determine their overall hemodynamic effects. The fat emulsions were administered for 30(More)
