Surgical repair of craniosynostosis carries a high risk with large blood losses. Over a 2-yr period, we have managed 115 patients undergoing craniosynostosis repair with peroperative haemodilution to achieve a final PCV of 0.28-0.35. Measurements of PCV allowed calculation of estimated blood losses and transfused volumes in terms of red blood cell mass.(More)
BACKGROUND Stavudine continues to be used in antiretroviral treatment (ART) regimens in many resource-limited settings. The use of zidovudine instead of stavudine in higher-risk patients to reduce the likelihood of lactic acidosis and hyperlactatemia (LAHL) has not been examined.

The involvement of dopaminergic receptors in the responses of conscious, restrained spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) and Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats to cocaine was examined using antagonists selective for DA-1 (SCH 23390) or DA-2 (sulpiride) dopamine receptors. Following pretreatment with saline vehicle, SCH 23390 (50 mg/kg, SC), sulpiride (50 mg/kg, IP) or SCH(More)
