The complications of 2,179 dialysis access procedures of various types have been reviewed in an effort to determine their possible prevention and management. Scribner arteriovenous shunts or central venous catheters were preferred for temporary dialysis. Infection was a common complication of central venous catheters, but responded well to removal of the(More)
Because of the unacceptably high mortality rate associated with aortoenteric fistula, we have constantly re-evaluated our experience with this lesion. A study of 31 cases of aortoenteric fistula proven at operation has provided a better understanding of the prevention and management of aortoenteric fistula. Prevention remains the primary goal, as the(More)
We reviewed extracranial carotid studies in two groups of patients. The first group consisted of 200 patients who had been evaluated by both duplex scanning (DS) and direct arch-selective carotid arteriography (SCA). The second group consisted of 100 patients who had been evaluated by both intravenous digital subtraction angiography (IDSA) and conventional(More)
We have analyzed our eight year experience with more than 200 instances of extra-anatomic bypass and have made certain observations. Extra-anatomic bypass provides an acceptable alternative to extensive direct intra-abdominal and intrathoracic vascular reconstructive procedures. This is particularly true in high risk patients and in the presence of(More)
A series of experiments have been conducted to evaluate the magnetotransport properties of RF diode sputter deposited giant magnetoresistive (GMR) multilayers with either copper or coppersilver-gold nonferromagnetic (NFM) conducting layers. The study revealed that RF diode deposited multilayers utilizing Cu80Ag15Au5 as the NFM conducting layer posses(More)
In brief: A panel of physiologists, orthopedists, and a physical therapist discuss hockey performance, training, injuries, and equipment. Heart rate monitoring, muscle biopsies, and analyses of the physiological demands of hockey show that training with short work/rest ratios and practicing skills before endurance will optimize performance. Most injuries(More)
