Compared to extraperitoneal laparotomy, the transperitoneal approach is associated with increased enteric morbidity. Recently, transperitoneal laparoscopy has been employed as a method to surgically stage patients with gynecologic malignancies. The objective of this study was to investigate pelvic adhesion formation in a porcine model after pelvic(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine whether there is a difference in adhesion formation after pelvic and paraaortic lymphadenectomy with transperitoneal laparoscopy compared with both extraperitoneal laparotomy and transperitoneal laparotomy in a porcine model. STUDY DESIGN Ninety female hogs underwent pelvic and paraaortic lymphadenectomy: 40 with(More)
White-nose syndrome (WNS) has had a devastating effect on North American bat populations. The causal agent of WNS is the fungal pathogen, Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd), which has been shown to persist in caves after the eradication of host populations. As nonpathogenic Pseudogymnoascus spp. display saprophytic growth and are among the most commonly(More)
In winter 2006, the bat population in Howe Cave, in central New York State, USA, contained a number of bats displaying an unusual white substance on their muzzles. The following year, numerous bats in four surrounding caves displayed unusual winter hibernation behavior, including day flying and entrance roosting. A number of bats were found dead and dying,(More)
Ice water tests (IWT) and gas cystometrograms were performed on 30 consecutive spinal cord injury in-patients on an intermittent catheterization program over a 6-month period. The tests were used to determine the presence of bladder reflex activity. A three-step grading system was formulated to clinically determine the degree of detrusor reflex activity on(More)
In fungi, distribution of secondary metabolite (SM) gene clusters is often associated with host- or environment-specific benefits provided by SMs. In the plant pathogen Alternaria brassicicola (Dothideomycetes), the DEP cluster confers an ability to synthesize the SM depudecin, a histone deacetylase inhibitor that contributes weakly to virulence. The DEP(More)
We report the case of a patient with confirmed Duchenne muscular dystrophy who lived a useful and improved life until age 34. He was first seen in our Muscular Dystrophy Clinic when he was 14; at that time he was functionally quadriplegic and required assistance for all activities of daily living. At age 17, ventilatory insufficiency developed and the(More)
