Atherosclerosis in 50 nondiabetic patients undergoing hemodialysis was assessed at the time of renal transplantation by intraoperative examination and histologic evaluation of the iliac vasculature. Patients were grouped accordingly: minimal (group 1), moderate (group 2) or severe (group 3) atherosclerosis. Sixty-two per cent of the patients had(More)
A therapy aiming at pre- and postoperative radiotherapy with concomitant chemotherapy has been used in 19 patients with anaplastic giant cell carcinoma of the thyroid gland. Radiotherapy was administered twice daily, 5 days a week; the cytostatic drugs employed were bleomycin, cyclophosphamide, and 5-fluorouracil. Patients with advanced disease (distant(More)
Physiological myocardial uptake of 18F-FDG during positron emission tomography can mask adjacent abnormal uptake in mediastinal malignancy and inflammatory cardiac diseases. Myocardial uptake is unpredictable and variable. This study evaluates the impact of a low-carbohydrate diet in reducing myocardial FDG uptake. Patients attending for clinically(More)
Operative removal of an 80.3-kg ovarian mucinous cystadenoma of low malignant potential is described. The 30-year-old woman from whom the tumor was removed had many medical problems spanning several medical fields, including psychiatry and plastic surgery, as well as gynecology. The team approach to these problems is summarized in this case report.
An aqueous primary standard is needed for measuring cholesterol by enzymatic procedures. Sodium deoxycholate solubilizes cholesterol in water. Crystalline cholesterol (1.00, 3.00, 4.00, and 5.00 g/L), added to a solution containing 150 g of this compound per liter of a 9 g/L saline solution, was measured by a cholesterol oxidase procedure, with a(More)
Chemical etching for highly sensitive detection of defects in singleand polycrystalline silicon was investigated. Slow<lb>defect delineation was studied in a HF-HN0,-CH3C0,H system with CH3C0,H concentrations over 50% and micropit<lb>delineation etchants were developed. Micropit delineation etchants delineate defects with extremely small(More)
