Background: Circumferential mucosectomy with stapled proctopexy (CMSP) was first introduced in 1993 as a less painful and highly effective alternative to traditional operative hemorrhoidectomy. Although CMSP has many advantages over traditional hemorrhoidectomy, some authorities and insurers continue to regard it as an inpatient procedure and others have(More)
Twenty-four patients with a clinical diagnosis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulae who were assessed by MR are reported and the literature reviewed on the use of MR in the evaluation of CSF fistulae. Thirteen patients presented with rhinorrhoea, three had otorhinorrhoea and two had recurrent meningitis. Six patients had a combination of symptoms. Nine(More)
The absorption and disposition kinetics of HI-6 were determined in Beagle dogs given single doses (25 mg kg-1) of the drug by the intravenous, intramuscular, and oral routes. Concentrations of the oxime in plasma and urine were measured by HPLC. A two-compartment open model was used to describe the disposition curve following intravenous drug administration(More)
Our purpose was to investigate three-dimensional (3D) gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (Gd-MRA) in the evaluation of renal transplant arteries. Eleven MR angiography examinations were performed in nine renal transplant patients. Gd-MRA, three-dimensional phase contrast (3D-PC) post-gadolinium, and two-dimensional time-of-flight (2D-TOF) MR(More)
The dermal absorption of niclosamide, a drug shown to prevent Schistosomiasis by blocking the dermal penetration of cercariae, has been examined in Sinclair minipigs and rats. Radioactivity in the urine and feces collected daily for 7 days after application of 14C-niclosamide accounted for less than 2 per cent and 10 per cent of the labelled compound(More)
Patients with gastroesophageal reflux (GER) frequently have a decreased lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure that increases after surgery, although variable results have been noted in children. LES pressures were measured in 80 patients > 3 months of age with symptomatic GER and in 20 control patients. The esophageal probe was a triple lumen catheter(More)
The discrete Fourier transform of a sequence, which can be computed using the fast Fourier transform algorithm, represents samples of the ztransform equally spaced around the unit circle. In this letter, a technique is discussed and illustrated for transforming a sequence to a new sequence whose discrete Fourier transform is equal to samples of the z(More)
