Let p > 2 be prime. We prove the weight part of Serre's conjecture for rank two unitary groups for mod p representations in the unramified case (that is, the Buzzard–Diamond–Jarvis conjecture for unitary groups), by proving that any Serre weight which occurs is a predicted weight. This completes the analysis begun in [BLGG11], which proved that all… (More)
Diagnosis of coin ingestion with esophageal impaction may be delayed if appropriate history is lacking. This delay may lead to mistreatment and complicate management. A series of illustrative cases are reported and relevant literature is reviewed. Guidelines for radiographic evaluation of potential ingestions are provided.
We investigated prospectively the radiopacity of 312 pills found on a university hospital formulary by first radiographing them through 15 and 25 cm of water to duplicate the radiodensity of the human body. The pills that were radiodense through water were studied in a human cadaver model, and their densities were quantified by computed tomography (CT).… (More)
OBJECTIVES Retrobulbar hemorrhage is a rare condition often necessitating immediate lateral canthotomy for preservation of vision. It is performed infrequently in emergency departments (EDs); therefore, a laboratory-based curriculum using a swine model was developed to teach emergency medicine (EM) residents and pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) fellows… (More)
We prove a portion of a conjecture of B. Conrad, F. Diamond, and R. Taylor, yielding some new cases of the Fontaine-Mazur conjectures, specifically, the modularity of certain potentially Barsotti-Tate Galois representations. The proof follows the template of Wiles, Taylor-Wiles, and Breuil-Conrad-Diamond-Taylor, and relies on a detailed study of the… (More)
A previously healthy nonepileptic 11-year-old girl presented with confusion and disorientation after an acute ingestion of valproic acid. Her serum concentration of valproic acid was 39.6 mcg/ml, a range normally considered "therapeutic" in the control of seizures. She recovered without sequelae despite the subsequent attainment of higher valproic acid… (More)
We study the possible weights of an irreducible 2-dimensional modular mod p representation of Gal(F /F), where F is a totally real field which is totally ramified at p, and the representation is tamely ramified at the prime above p. In most cases we determine the precise list of possible weights; in the remaining cases we determine the possible weights up… (More)
Let p > 2 be prime. We complete the proof of the weight part of Serre's conjecture for rank two unitary groups for mod p representations in the totally ramified case, by proving that any weight which occurs is a predicted weight. Our methods are a mixture of local and global techniques, and in the course of the proof we establish some purely local results… (More)
We prove the main conjectures of [Bre12] (including a generali-sation from the principal series to the cuspidal case) and [Dem], subject to a mild global hypothesis that we make in order to apply certain R = T theorems. More precisely, we prove a multiplicity one result for the mod p cohomology of a Shimura curve at Iwahori level, and we show that certain… (More)
We treated a 64-year-old man who recovered completely from a massive antifreeze ingestion with ethylene glycol levels well above those of previously described survivors. Rapid and aggressive treatment of the patient with recognized methods, including hemodialysis, resulted in the favorable outcome.
