The records of 50 patients with isolated iliac artery aneurysms seen between January 1970 and January 1982 were reviewed. Forty-seven were men and three were women. Their ages ranged from 41 to 92 years (mean 69.7 years). Aneurysm diameter ranged from 2 to 20 cm (mean 4.7 cm). Seventeen patients had multiple aneurysms. Sixty-two percent of aneurysms were on(More)
Bronchogenic carcinoma is reported to be more rapidly fatal in young persons than in older persons. We wondered whether young patients experience a more virulent form of lung cancer or whether other factors might contribute to poor survival. We reviewed the records of 113 Mayo Clinic patients younger than 40 years with histologically proven bronchogenic(More)
Minimally invasive coronary artery bypass has primarily involved left internal mammary artery grafting to the left anterior descending coronary artery through a small left anterior thoracotomy incision. Harvesting of the mammary artery has been accomplished completely using a video-assisted thoracoscopic technique or incompletely to the second interspace(More)
The bioconversion of leukotriene (LT) C4 to LTD4 via gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase is clearly defined in guinea pig trachea. Acivicin, an inhibitor of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, was used to study the contractile responses elicited by either endogenously released or exogenously administered LTC4 and the antagonistic nature of LY 171883 and ICI 204,219,(More)
From 1970 to 1985, 246 consecutive patients with left ventricular (LV) aneurysm underwent repair and concomitant myocardial revascularization at Ochsner Foundation Hospital. The overall incidence of perioperative death was 7.3%. Although the deaths were mainly cardiac related (10/18) with congestive heart failure (CHF) as the leading cause (6/10), 8 deaths(More)
