The presence of the nervous system-specific S-100 antigen has been tested by microcomplement fixation assay with a monospecific anti-S-100 antiserum in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of subjects suffering from psychiatric disorders or various neurological diseases. The antigen was detectable in the CSF of most of the patients with neurological diseases(More)
Thirty-four postmenopausal stress incontinence patients were divided in two groups: 17 were treated with 0.5 mg oestriol vaginal cream for 90 days, 17 controls were treated with moisturizing cream. All had low urethral pressures and dystrophy. Treated patients showed improvement of maximum urethral pressure, urethral closure pressure, and volume at first(More)

Transvaginal sonography can show partial urinary penetration in the urethra in patients with no clinical incontinence. The Fluid Bridge Test-Pressure urodynamically demonstrates the same phenomenon. We compared these two technics in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI). 49 patients underwent urodynamic testing and transvaginal sonography; 18 had(More)
Digoxin was assayed in maternal and neonatal sera and in the amniotic fluid in 14 pregnant patients chronically digitalized for mitral stenosis. Neonatal serum levels of digoxin are linearly correlated with maternal concentrations of the drug, and all are inversely related to maternal creatinine clearance. Amniotic fluid levels of the drug are not related(More)
One hundred forty three patients underwent hysteroscopy for abnormal uterine bleeding from January 1993 through December 1994. Sixty patients were postmenopausal. All but 3 of the procedures were performed on outpatient with no significant complications. Three groups could be identified on the basis of endometrial features (color, vascularity, thickness,(More)
