OBJECTIVE To measure the frequency dynamics of cervical and ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in healthy subjects and patients with Ménière's disease. STUDY DESIGN A prospective cohort study. SETTING A university teaching hospital. SUBJECTS Eight healthy volunteers (16 ears) and 12 adult patients with unilateral Ménière's disease (8 with(More)
Liver progenitor/oval cells differentiate into hepatocytes and biliary epithelial cells, repopulating the liver when the regenerative capacity of hepatocytes is impaired. Recent studies have shown that hematopoietic bone marrow (BM) stem/progenitor cells can give rise to hepatocytes in diseased/damaged liver. One study has reported that BM cells can(More)
We describe a case of a 59-year-old patient with intrahepatic arterioportal fistula secondary to blunt trauma sustained by a motor vehicle accident 36 years earlier. The fistula was demonstrated 36 years after the accident in a clinical work-up for diarrhea of 1 month's duration, using contrast enhanced three-dimensional breath-hold MRA. A communication(More)
The gerbil social interaction test has previously detected anxiolytic effects of nicotine and diazepam. In the present study, the high affinity substance P (NK(1)) receptor antagonist L-760735 (3 mg/kg) significantly increased the time spent in social interaction, whereas its low affinity analogue L-781773 (3 mg/kg) was without effect. Diazepam (0.1 mg/kg)(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe emergency medical service providers' experiences with family member presence during resuscitation, and to determine whether those experiences are similar within urban and suburban settings. METHODS We conducted a personally distributed survey of a convenience sample of urban and suburban emergency medical service (EMS) providers(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of electrode position on the amplitude and latency of ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMPs) produced by air-conducted (AC) sound with a view to optimisation of the recording paradigm. METHODS Eight otologically normal subjects (16 ears) were stimulated by 500 Hz AC tone bursts at 95 dBnHL; oVEMP traces were(More)
Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a complication that occurs in the luteal phase of an induced hormonal cycle. In most cases, the symptoms are self-limited, and spontaneous regression occurs [1]. Mild manifestations of OHSS include transient lower abdominal discomfort, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal distension. Life-threatening OHSS can(More)
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a common disorder caused by the dislocation of otoconia most commonly into the posterior canal. The primary symptoms are brief episodes of head-position related vertigo which may be accompanied by nausea and disequilibrium. BPPV is usually managed conservatively with excellent results, however in a small number(More)
