An unexpectedly high frequency of ventral incisional hernia in our aortic reconstruction patients prompted us to review a recent three year period. Of 76 aortic reconstruction patients, 66 were evaluable for at least one year following their aortic procedure. In these 66 patients, ventral incisional hernias occurred in 14 (21.2%). Of statistical(More)
Erythromycin treatment failures and in vitro resistance of Bordetella pertussis have been reported on several occasions in the past few years, but the mechanism of resistance has not been described. One potential mechanism, genetic modification of the erythromycin-binding site on the 23S rRNA of the 50S ribosomal subunit, has been observed in other(More)
Transcutaneous oxygen tension (PtcO2) was used for noninvasive determination of blood supply in 25 patients evaluated for peripheral arterial disease. PtcO2 values were compared with segmental Doppler pressure, pulse volume recording, pulse reappearance time, and angiography in patients being evaluated for wound healing problems, amputations, and peripheral(More)
This study explores the role of membrane phospholipid peroxidation in the copper alloy mediated contact killing of Bacillus subtilis, a spore-forming gram-positive bacterial species. We found that B. subtilis endospores exhibited significant resistance to copper alloy surface killing but vegetative cells were highly sensitive to copper surface exposure.(More)
The formation of blood clots is a significant threat to individuals with limited mobility, whether in the hospital or recovering in an outpatient setting. Prevention of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism has been found to be cost-effective when compared with treating an existing thrombosis. Despite these positive findings, compliance with the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate Acinetobacter baumannii infection, colonization, and transmission related to a long-term care facility (LTCF) providing subacute care (facility A). METHODS We reviewed facility A and affiliated local hospital records for facility A residents with A. baumannii isolated during the period January 2009 through February 2010 and(More)
Aggressive revascularization of the ischemic lower extremity in atherosclerotic occlusive disease by femoropopliteal (FP) and femorotibial (FT) bypass or profundaplasty (P), as indicated, has been advocated by some authors for all patients. Others have recommended primary amputation, particularly for tibial occlusive disease. To clarify this clinical(More)
The advent of noninvasive screening tests has allowed the identification of an increasing number of patients with asymptomatic carotid stenoses. The management of these patients must be individualized, as the preferred method of therapy has not been established. Such a solution ultimately requires a prospective randomized trial to define the natural history(More)
