Late failure of autologous vein grafts often results from excessive subendothelial fibromuscular hyperplasia. Varying factors have been implicated in this process, but the exact etiology remains… Expand
Inferior vena caval obstruction from increased intra-abdominal pressure. Experimental hemodynamic and angiographic observations.
IT HAS recently been demonstrated that partial obstruction of the suprahepatic segment of the abdominal inferior vena cava may accompany abdominal ascites in patients with cirrhosis or severe… Expand

A patient presented with mitral valve prolapse, ruptured chordae tendineae, severe mitral regurgitation and congestive heart failure. Pathologic studies demonstrated myxomatous changes of both mitral… Expand
The surgical significance of chylous ascites.
CHYLOUS ascites, although rare, has been recognized as a clinical problem since the 17th century1-4and its uncommon occurrence is reflected by the infrequent publications which consist largely of… Expand
Left Ventricular Function and Adrenergic Hyperactivity before and after Saphenous Vein Bypass
Forty patients with severe angina pectoris were studied before and two weeks after saphenous vein bypass surgery (SVG) in order to assess the effect of this operation on left ventricular performance… Expand
Mechanism of obstruction of the infradiaphragmatic portion of the inferior vena cava in the presence of increased intra-abdominal pressure.
Hypertension following carotid endarterectomy.
Seventy-nine patients undergoing staged bilateral carotid endarterectomy were studied to determine the relationship of perioperative hypertension to postoperative neurologic deficits. Six of the… Expand
Nonpenetrating trauma to the thoracic aorta.
Twenty-seven patients underwent surgical repair for nonpenetrating injuries of the thoracic aorta. Emergency operation was performed in 19 patients with acute aortic injury and there were 12… Expand
Quantitative study of the rabbit aortic endothelium using vascular casts.
