A common pattern of hypoxic-ischemic cerebral injury in the term newborn involves predominantly cerebral cortex and subcortical white matter. We describe 20 term newborns with moderate or severe acute hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy who exhibit a different pattern of abnormalities on computed tomography, with evidence of decreased tissue attenuation(More)
BACKGROUND Biomarkers are potentially useful in assessment of outcomes in patients with cirrhosis, but information is very limited. Given the large number of biomarkers, adequate choice of which biomarker(s) to investigate first is important. AIM Analysis of potential usefulness of a panel of urinary biomarkers in outcome assessment in cirrhosis. (More)
INTRODUCTION Hyponatremia is a marker of poor prognosis in patients with cirrhosis. This analysis aimed to assess if hyponatremia also has prognostic value in patients with acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF), a syndrome characterized by acute decompensation of cirrhosis, organ failure(s) and high short-term mortality. METHODS We performed an analysis(More)

A retrospective series of orbital, axial, and coronal computed tomography scans from 24 orbital floor fractures was studied to define the anatomic location of the fracture. Floor fractures without rim involvement, which are referred to clinically as blowout fractures, were located medial to the infraorbital nerve or extended on both sides of the nerve.(More)
