The evaluation of excessive hemorrhage was carried out in 774 patients after cardiopulmonary bypass. Excessive hemorrhage was defined in any adult patient as chest tube drainage of more than 600 ml within the first eight hours after operation. Using the prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, fibrinogen level, and tri-F titer tests, it was possible(More)
The ultrastructure and maturation of avian pox particles is described in the rare case of a naturally infected hawk (Falco cherrug). As in other cells infected by fowlpox virus two types of inclusion bodies are encountered in the cytoplasm: firstly assemblies of fluffy filamentous material apparently giving rise to immature virions. They are thought to(More)
The present study defines excessive bleeding in patients who undergo cardiopulmonary bypass, and evaluates the use of coagulation testing to predict those patients that bleed excessively. Evaluation of 774 consecutive patients undergoing aortocoronary bypass surgery was carried out. Cardiopulmonary bypass consisted of a bloodless prime and a Harvey bubble(More)
Sir, Among the side-effects arising with a prosthesis, ®tting problems and dermatological complaints are the most frequent. The importance of prevention or early recognition of skin problems cannot be overemphasized to avoid bed rest and other handicaps (1). One major problem in leg amputees is stump hyperhidrosis. The use of silicone pads and other rather(More)
First, all known etiologic factors for the development of urinary bladder cancer and those being in discussion are summarized. Consideration is essentially given to industrial carcinogens, tryptophan metabolites, phenacetin, nicotine, coffee, artificial sweeteners, and chronic irritations of the bladder urothelium. In addition, the demographic factors known(More)
One hundred thirty-one consecutive patients who received 5, 6, and 7 bypass grafts are analyzed. Ages ranged from 31 to 74 years. The male-to-female ratio was 7:1. As an indication of severity of disease, 25% were classified as having impending myocardial infarction and 46.6% were classified in New York Heart Association Functional Class IV. Left(More)
Eighty patients with evidence of impaired ventricular function by ventriculography were reviewed. On the basis of the ejection fraction, these patients were divided into three groups. Those with ejection fractions less than 0.2 were considered in very poor condition, those with ejection fractions of 0.2 to 0.4 were considered in poor condition, and those(More)
Transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder was induced in rats by ingestion of 0.188% N-[4-5-nitro-2-furyl)-2-thiazolyl] formamide. During the induction period of 8 months, one animal group received systemic BCG treatment. After 12 months, the BCG-treated rats showed a significantly lower bladder tumor weight and stage than the corresponding(More)
