OBJECTIVE Echocardiography is an important tool in the diagnosis and management of critically ill neonates. The authors hypothesized that live telemedicine guidance and interpretation of neonatal echocardiograms from underserved areas would improve management, prevent unnecessary transports, enhance sonographer proficiency, and result in monetary savings.… (More)
Adopting a network perspective, the structural connectome reveals the large-scale white matter connectivity of the human brain, yielding insights into cerebral organization otherwise inaccessible to researchers and clinicians. Connectomics has great potential for elucidating abnormal connectivity in congenital brain malformations, especially axonal… (More)
A 38-year-old male with terminal transferase positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia experienced fever, polymicrobial bacteremia, gastrointestinal bleeding, abdominal pain during induction therapy, and remission. Cecal perforation, Aspergillus peritonitis, and subsequent disseminated aspergillosis were successfully managed with colon resection, drainage, and… (More)
Disseminated cryptococcosis developed as the first manifestation of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome in a previously healthy Haitian man. Following presentation with a febrile illness that included massive mediastinal and peripheral lymphadenopathy, the patient died of overwhelming pulmonary, visceral, and meningeal cryptococcosis.
A case of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome complicated by a severe myopathy is reported. All efforts aimed at documenting an infectious etiology for the myopathy were negative. The relationship of myopathy to AIDS is discussed.
Splenic hamangiosarcomas are rare tumors, usually discovered at autopsy. In a few instances the diagnosis was made premortem, at the time of splenectomy for spontaneous rupture. The tumors usually present with abdominal pain, left upper guadrant mass and tenderness, and occasionally with a microangiopathic type of anemia. The histogenesis of the tumor is in… (More)
OBJECTIVE To test the ability of a modified pulmonary artery (PA) monitoring catheter to detect distal catheter migration. DESIGN Prospective nonrandomized trial. PATIENTS Surgical ICU patients requiring invasive hemodynamic monitoring. INTERVENTIONS Eight patients received PA catheters modified to include a right ventricular (RV) pressure monitoring… (More)
UNLABELLED The development of hemispheric lateralization for language is poorly understood. In one hypothesis, early asymmetric gene expression assigns language to the left hemisphere. In an alternate view, language is represented a priori in both hemispheres and lateralization emerges via cross-hemispheric communication through the corpus callosum. To… (More)
