Teaching anatomy with surgeons' tools: Use of the laparoscope in clinical anatomy
The purpose of this study was to establish the feasibility of laparoscopy in embalmed cadavers to teach abdominal gross anatomy and to allow first‐year medical students to learn the anatomy while exposing them to the technology currently used in surgical practice. Expand
Postmortem blood tests for HIV, HBV, and HCV in a body donation program
A retrospective analysis of the results of blood tests conducted on body donors received by the Anatomical Gift Registry of the Medical College of Wisconsin found blood testing prior to the use of the body donors is an effective and reasonable way of identifying the presence of these infectious agents, thus reducing the risk to those who work with cadavers.

The purpose of this study is to delineate with high frequency ultrasound imaging the normal growth and development of the chick embryo throughout its incubation period. White Leghorn chick embryos… Expand
Pharmacology of dextroamphetamine-induced cardiovascular malformations in the chick embryo.
It is speculated that the embryonic chick is capable of responding to the alpha and/or beta properties of dextroamphetamine sulfate, and these properties may be causally related to the malformations observed. Expand
Elevated blood pressure in the embryonic chick induced by a teratogenic dose of dextroamphetamine sulfate.
Elevation of embryonic blood pressure during a critical period of aortic arch and ventricular septal morphogenesis is suggested as an etiological factor in the genesis of malformations of these structures. Expand
Computerized grading of anatomy laboratory practical examinations
A procedure was developed to allow computerized grading and grade reporting of laboratory practical examinations in the Clinical Human Anatomy course and greatly reduced faculty grading time, reduced grading errors and provided faster performance feedback for students without changing overall student performance.

The role of dysrhythmic heart function during cardiovascular teratogenesis in epinephrine-treated chick embryos.
It is concluded that the production of specific malformations and decreased probability for survival in epinephrine-treated embryos are related to dysrhythmogenesis and bradycardia. Expand
Reduction of catecholamine-induced cardiovascular malformations in the chick embryo with metoprolol.
Dopamine, as well as the other sympathomimetic amines, is a potent teratogen and most likely produces these cardiovascular malformations by primarily stimulating the beta 1-adrenoreceptor in the embryonic chick. Expand
Amphetamines reduce embryonic size and produce caudal hematomas during early chick morphogenesis.
It was found that both dextroamphetamine and methamphetamine treated embryos frequently exhibited a significant decrease in crown rump length and cross-sectional area of the notochord, neural tube, dorsal aortae and whole body section, when compared with unopened or saline injected controls. Expand
Microbubble contrast imaging of the cardiovascular system of the chick embyro.
Microbubble contrast ultrasound imaging in the chick embryo greatly expands the ability to study cardiovascular development and the two natural embryonic A-V shunts provide an excellent model to study the bioeffects of microbubbles in the arterial system. Expand
