As leiomyomas enlarge, they may outgrow their blood supply, resulting in various types of degeneration: hyaline or myxoid degeneration, calcification, cystic degeneration, and red degeneration.

OBJECTIVES To examine whether polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) in hypercholesterolemia (HC) are activated to generate large amount of superoxide in vivo and hence impair endothelial function and, if so, whether statins, which possess anti-inflammatory properties, may restore PMN-mediated endothelial dysfunction. METHODS AND RESULTS At baseline,(More)
OBJECTIVES Accurate neurological diagnoses are often difficult to make due to the complexity of the neuroanatomy involved. This study was performed to evaluate the usefulness of a computer system with easily retrievable anatomical information as a support for arriving at more accurate anatomic diagnoses. PATIENTS AND METHODS Anatomical information from an(More)
PURPOSE In an effort to reduce patient radiation dose during selective fallopian tube catheterization, the diagnostic adequacy of fluoroscopic images was compared with digital radiographic images in both a phantom study and a clinical study. METHODS For the phantom study polyethylene tubes with inner diameters of 1.30, 0.95, 0.80, 0.57, and 0.45 mm were(More)
