OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical presentation, cause, and outcome of central venous catheter (CVC)-related pericardial effusions (PCE) in infants. METHODS A retrospective case review was conducted of CVC-related PCE at university and private neonatal intensive care units. Data from our cases were combined with published case reports and included(More)
In 1973, standardized blood pressure measurements were obtained in 837 high school students in Bourbon County, Kentucky, a rural county with a high prevalence of individuals with systemic hypertension. In 1978, follow-up measurements of blood pressure were performed in selected individuals who were in the high, intermediate, and low ranges of the initial(More)
SUMMARY Serial microscopic sections of the left ventricular myocardium were examined in 12 autopsy specimens of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Multiple ventriculocoronary arterial connections, thick-walled coronary arteries, prominent endocardial fibroelastosis, myofiber disarray and focal calcification/ scarring of the myocardium were noted in the cases(More)
Kimura's disease is a rare, chronic inflammatory disease characterized by subcutaneous nodules in the head and neck regions associated with regional cervical lymphadenopathy. Following its recognition as a pathologic entity, numerous reports have been published detailing the pathogenesis, radiologic manifestations, and treatment modalities. An extensive(More)
PURPOSE Late development of myocardial dysfunction years following successful treatment of childhood malignancy with anthracyclines is well documented. There have been few studies of late cardiac performance in children in whom serial monitoring during treatment suggested normal cardiac performance, and those studies that do exist rely on the results of(More)
Uterine infections are a major reproductive problem in livestock. We conducted two experiments to investigate factors that may modulate uterine responses to infectious bacteria. In Exp. 1, ewes received intrauterine inoculations of either saline or bacteria (75 x 10(7) cfu of Actinomyces pyogenes and 35 x 10(7) cfu of Escherichia coli) on either d 0 or 7 of(More)
Previously reported echocardiographic abnormalities in patients with mucopolysaccaridosis and the Hunter-Hurler phenotype have stressed the similarity to calcific mitral stenosis despite the fact that mitral stenosis is a relatively uncommon manifestation of this disease. The purpose of this report is to describe the echocardiographic abnormalities in five(More)
This paper presents and evaluates a method for the construction of long-range and wide-area temporal spatial datasets of daily precipitation and temperature (maximum and minimum). This method combines the interpolation of daily ratios/fractions derived from ground-based meteorological station records and respective fields of monthly estimates. Data sources(More)
A useful method for the separation of labetalol into its two racemic diastereomers, as well as a stereoselective synthesis of its four stereoisomers, is described. The absolute stereochemistry of each isomer was determined by analysis of the DC spectra and confirmed by X-ray analysis. The alpha- and beta 1-adrenergic blocking properties, as well as the(More)
