Although measurements of trunk flexibility are an important part of a clinical examination, subjective methods are usually used to assess spinal mobility. We studied three easily performed objective techniques for determining trunk flexibility (the common "fingertip-to-floor" test, the modified Schober and Moll tests, and the Loebl inclinometer method) and(More)
BACKGROUND Neurological complications following bariatric surgery are rare. Whereas nutritional deficiencies are the most common cause of neurological symptoms, the unmasking of previously subclinical metabolic disorders can also lead to significant morbidity. OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical presentation, serum biochemical fluctuations, and(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to examine predictors of ammonia exposure and hyperammonemic crises in patients with urea cycle disorders. METHODS The relationships between fasting ammonia, daily ammonia exposure, and hyperammonemic crises were analyzed in >100 patients with urea cycle disorders. RESULTS Fasting ammonia correlated strongly with daily(More)
BACKGROUND Elevated plasma homocysteine is a risk factor for arterial and venous thromboses in adults. Homocysteine is increased in cystathionine beta-synthase deficiency, a treatable amino acid metabolic disorder that may be missed on newborn screening placing children at risk of thrombosis and strokes. PATIENT We present a 3-year-old girl with normal(More)
Given two distinct primes p and t, let X(p) be a modular curve and let (s,) Ct (P = (P) be a Hecke correspondence. We study the action of this correspondence on the cohomology of X(p) by studying the topology of Ct(p). Specifically, using s and t we lift a triangulation A(p) of X(p) to two cell decompositions of Ct(p) We then construct a space, the(More)
