The aim of this study was to investigate whether tumor-associated tissue eosinophilia (TATE) in early oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) would aid in predicting occult lymph node metastasis. Seventy-one patients undergoing elective neck dissection for T1 and T2 OSCC were evaluated for clinical features, prognosis, and TATE. The degree of TATE in OSCC was(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the immediate and midterm results of a modified method for transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSDs). BACKGROUND Transcatheter closure of pmVSDs has been associated with development of heart block due to impingement on the ventricular conduction system. Ventricular septal aneurysms (VSAs) are(More)
To determine outcome and predictors of restenosis after three or more PTCAs for the same coronary lesion we studied 23 patients (17 patients three PTCAs; five patients four PTCAs; one patient six PTCAs). The primary success rate was 100%. Myocardial infarction was seen in one patient; there was no emergency surgery or mortality. Duration of follow-up after(More)

We sought to investigate the cost effectiveness of resuscitation of infants born 23 0/7-23 6/7 weeks' gestation. DESIGN Decision-analytic modeling comparing universal and selective resuscitation to non-resuscitation for 5176 live births at 23 weeks in(More)
