PURPOSE Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are medically serious skin reactions that are often drug induced. The mainstay of therapy and future prevention is to discontinue and avoid the use of the suspected inducing drug. However, many cases of SJS/TEN occur in patients who are taking multiple medications, and it is often(More)
Patients with hip disarticulation (HD) require high energy expenditure for successful prosthetic ambulation. Thus, older patients are rarely fitted with an HD prosthesis. To our knowledge there are no reports of gait analysis following successful prosthetic fitting of an elderly HD amputee patient with systemic cardiopulmonary disease. We report the case of(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to develop an automated causality assessment algorithm to identify drug-induced liver injury. METHODS The Roussel Uclaf Causality Assessment Method (RUCAM) is an algorithm for determining the causal association between a drug and liver injury. In collaboration with hepatology experts, definitions were developed for the(More)
Large-scale tree improvement programs began in the 1950s. Tree improvement is now part of operational silviculture programs in many companies and countries around the world and tree breeding programs have produced very impressive results: (1) realized gains in plantations being established today of some 40–50 % in volume yield above unimproved material for(More)
Internationally, the orphan crisis caused by the human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) pandemic remains a serious issue with long-term social consequences. At the end of 2001, an estimated 14 million children worldwide had lost their mother or both parents to AIDS or related causes. Sub-Saharan Africa is the most(More)

Electrodiagnostic consultation is a highly sensitive mechanism for the podiatrist to obtain functional information about the peripheral nervous system in the lower extremity. This article discusses the basic components of the electrodiagnostic consultation and the information that can be obtained through this testing. Additionally, it provides the(More)
This investigation examined the cortical somatosensory-evoked potentials (SEP) waveforms obtained from four sets of commercially available subdermal needle electrodes in 19 normal subjects. The composite materials of the four electrodes were stainless steel and a platinum/iridium alloy. Tibial nerve SEP peak latencies for P37 and N45 as well as P37/N45(More)
