The aim of this updated guideline is to provide comprehensive and timely evidence-based recommendations on the prevention of future stroke among survivors of ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack. The guideline is addressed to all clinicians who manage secondary prevention for these patients. Evidence-based recommendations are provided for control of(More)
Abnormalities of the occipital cranial suture in infancy can cause significant posterior cranial asymmetry, malposition of the ears, distortion of the cranial base, deformation of the forehead, and facial asymmetry. Over the past 2 years, we have noted a dramatic increase in the incidence of deformation of the occipital skull in our tertiary referral(More)
In nature, nuclear polyhedrosis viruses (NPV) are transmitted when susceptible insect larvae ingest viral occlusion bodies (OB). These dissociate in the alkaline environment of the midgut and release encapsulated virions (PDV) which bind to midgut epithelial cells and initiate an infection. A previous study showed that expression of the Autographa(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the kinetics of O2 uptake (VO2) and m. vastus lateralis [deoxyhemoglobin] ([Hb]) (near-infrared spectroscopy) for supramaximal intermittent cycling. METHODS Six males performed a ramp test for determination of VO2peak and lactate threshold. On different days, they completed four intermittent "work:recovery" tests (10 s:20 s, 30 s:60(More)
A respiratory therapist-driven weaning protocol incorporating daily screens, spontaneous breathing trials (SBT), and prompts to caregivers has been associated with superior outcomes in mechanically ventilated medical patients. To determine the effectiveness of this approach in neurosurgical (NSY) patients, we conducted a randomized controlled trial(More)
The aim of this updated statement is to provide comprehensive and timely evidence-based recommendations on the prevention of stroke among individuals who have not previously experienced a stroke or transient ischemic attack. Evidence-based recommendations are included for the control of risk factors, interventional approaches to atherosclerotic disease of(More)
UNLABELLED Previous investigations have reported that accelerometer counts plateau during running at increasingly faster speeds. PURPOSE To assess whether biomechanical and/or device limitations cause this phenomenon and the feasibility of generating oxygen uptake (.VO2) prediction equations from the combined use of accelerometry and heart rate during(More)
1. The effect of probenecid on striatal dopamine depletion in acute 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated mice was examined. 2. Mice treated with a single dose of MPTP (15 mg/kg, s.c.) showed a significant depletion of striatal dopamine throughout a time-course of 7 days. Interestingly, this MPTP-induced striatal dopamine depletion was(More)
Several studies have shown that diminution of the high-frequency (HF; 150-250 Hz) components present within the central portion of the QRS complex of an electrocardiogram (ECG) is a more sensitive indicator for the presence of myocardial ischemia than are changes in the ST segments of the conventional low-frequency ECG. However, until now, no device has(More)
Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors reduce the progression of atherosclerosis in animal models and reinfarction rates after myocardial infarction in humans. Although expression of components of the renin-angiotensin system has been reported in human coronary arteries, no data regarding their presence in carotid arteries, a frequent site for the(More)
