A canine model simulating Meckel's diverticulum was used to evaluate the effects of pentagastrin, glucagon, and a combination of the two hormones on the gastrointestinal localization of 99mTc. Pentagastrin produced accelerated uptake of the radionuclide in both the stomach and the ectopic gastric mucosa but resulted in early visualization of the duodenum(More)
Presented is a case report of a 52-year-old male heat stroke victim. The patient presented in deep coma with a temperature above 42 C. Following rapid assessment, the patient was intubated, rehydration was begun, and he was externally cooled with ice bags and internally cooled with ice water gastric lavage.

It is important to have a high index of suspicion for the existence of a urinary tract infection in infants and children with any nonspecific generalized illness. Once a UTI is documented, appropriate antibiotic therapy must be started and continued(More)
PURPOSE Treatment of long-gap esophageal atresia challenges pediatric surgeons. Dr. Foker described utilization of external traction sutures to promote in-vivo growth through tension-induced lengthening, but reproducibility of this technique is difficult. We describe a safe and reproducible traction system using transduction of hydrostatic pressure as a(More)
The equine hoof and foot are the most commonly affected anatomic sites of lameness encountered during purchase examination of the performance horse.
