Postoperative ultrasonographic assessment as a result of unremitting fever after cesarean section depicted a large pedunculated thrombus within the inferior vena cava at the level of the right renal vein. Subsequent imaging studies revealed that this thrombus was the distal extension of right ovarian vein thrombosis into the inferior vena cava.
We report a case of sarcoidosis with an unusual radiological appearance. The patient was a 41-year-old asymptomatic woman who presented for a baseline screening mammogram, which revealed an asymmetric, slightly increased density in the upper outer quadrant of her left breast. Ultrasonography failed to demonstrate any mass. Her past medical history was(More)
A low-noise transducer based on a fiber Fabry-Perot (FFP) cavity was used as a pickup for an acoustic guitar. A distributed feedback (DFB) laser was locked to a 25 MHz-wide resonance of the FFP cavity using the Pound-Drever-Hall method. The correction signal was used as the audio output and was preamplified and sampled at up to 96 kHz. The pickup system is(More)
This study was designed to investigate the importance of risk factors such as hyperglycemia and elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressures on the progression of renal insufficiency in diabetics suffering from diabetic nephropathy. Seventeen patients with Type I, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) (8 women and 9 men) undergoing chronic(More)
PURPOSE Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability worldwide. The absence of more effective interventions in the chronic stage-that most patients stand to benefit from-reflects uncertainty surrounding mechanisms that govern recovery. The present work investigated the effects of a novel treatment (selective cyclooxygenase-1, COX-1, inhibition) in a(More)
Brain plasticity following focal cerebral ischaemia has been observed in both stroke survivors and in preclinical models of stroke. Endogenous neurovascular adaptation is at present incompletely understood yet its potentiation may improve long-term functional outcome. We employed longitudinal MRI, intracranial array electrophysiology, Montoya Staircase(More)
