Whether human coronary arteries undergo compensatory enlargement in the presence of coronary disease has not been clarified. We studied histologic sections of the left main coronary artery in 136 hearts obtained at autopsy to determine whether atherosclerotic human coronary arteries enlarge in relation to plaque (lesion) area and to assess whether such(More)
The majority of primary testicular lymphomas are of B-cell type. Other primary lymphomas are rarely encountered in the testes. Natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphomas of nasal type are aggressive extranodal lymphomas associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection that are usually encountered in the upper aerodigestive tract. They also occur in the skin, soft(More)
This paper evaluates the use of radiofrequency (RF) magnetic field gradient echoes to provide contrast in magnetic resonance (MR) images of model tumors. Decay of RF gradient echoes as a function of evolution time was measured and sensitivity of the decay to changes in blood pressure was evaluated. Previous investigators have demonstrated that static field(More)
Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) produces a spectrum of biological and toxic conditions that are characteristic of polyhalogenated aromatic compounds. In humans, HCB is easily absorbed through the lymphatic system to accumulate in fat tissues, and persists for many years since it is highly lipophilic and resistant to metabolic conditions. With a view to assessing(More)
Menetrier's disease in infancy is extremely rare, and its natural course has not been studied in detail. The present case report describes an infant whose initial diagnosis was formula protein allergy and who developed gastric outlet obstruction by 3 months of age. The diagnosis of Menetrier's disease was suggested by characteristic radiological,(More)
We studied the relationships among intimal plaque area, lumen area, and artery size in 481 sections of the left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery taken at four standard sampling sites in 125 pressure-perfusion-fixed postmortem adult human hearts. The internal elastic lamina area was considered to be a measure of artery size or potential lumen area.(More)
