Continuous retroperitoneal bleeding may be an immediate life-threatening complication of pelvic fractures. While surgical control of the bleeding vessels has been advocated in these cases, today angiographic embolization of the branches of the internal iliac arteries is proving to be the treatment of choice. This is a relatively simple, safe, prompt and(More)
Seventeen women with prolactin levels of 100 ng/ml and above suspected of harboring prolactin-secreting pituitary adenoma, from the basis of this study. Ten patients had radiological signs of an adenoma while in 7 the radiological criteria for such a diagnosis were not fulfilled. Ovulation and pregnancy were induced with bromocriptine in all 17 patients.(More)
The application of the mass spectrometer to the continuous monitoring of blood gases in humans is described. At the heart of the system is an intravascular catheter consisting of a cannula impermeable to gas tipped with a membrane whose special gas permeability characteristics permits accurate calibration. Expressions are presented which describe gas flow(More)
Angiographic and pathologic findings are presented and correlated in a case of renal cavernous hemangioma, and considered in relation to 3 other cases published previously. A normal angiogram does not exclude a cavernous hemangioma. Those tumors with a large arterial component may be demonstrated in the arterial phase of the angiogram. A discrete tumor may(More)
Pelvic angiography was performed in 12 cases of amenorrhea and hypomenorrhea which developed following curettage of abortion and in the puerperium. Six cases of similar age and obstetric history with normal menstrual cycles served as control. Pelvic angiography revealed widespread vascular occlusion of myometrial arteries, in seven of the twelve cases.(More)
The following paper assesses the results of pluridirectional tomograms in 50 normal females of reproductive age, as reflected by the opinions given by 4 different radiologists with major interest in the pituitary fossa. Only 16 of the 50 tomograms were uniformly read as normal. The study has merit in highlighting the 'abnormalities' of the pituitary fossa(More)
