The antiepileptic effect of lamotrigine (Lamictal) was assessed in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial in 56 adult patients with refractory partial seizures. Lamotrigine or placebo was added to the patients' existing antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). The dose of lamotrigine varied from 75 to 400 mg daily. Thirty-eight patients completed the trial(More)
Initial clinical application of a system for digital subtraction angiography (DSA) to the human cardiovascular system in 88 patients is reported. The equipment consisted of a specially designed computer system integrated with a fluoroscopic and radiographic apparatus for digitization, manipulation, and display of data. After intravenous injection of(More)
This study examined the anatomy of the infrapatellar fat pad (IFP) in relation to knee pathology and surgical approaches. Eight embalmed knees were dissected via semicircular parapatellar incisions and each IFP was examined. Their volume, shape and constituent features were recorded. They were found in all knees and were constant in shape, consisting of a(More)
SUMMARY We describe a technique for interruption/modification of atrioventricular conduction using a direct current shock delivered from a defibrillator to the atrioventricular junctional tissue by means of a conventional electrode wire. The method was used in three patients with refractory supraventricular tachycardia. After the procedure two patients(More)

Observer accuracy in the identification of low-contrast objects in computed tomography (CT) was studied. Thresholds were established for detection of lesions of various sizes and attenuation differences in CT images produced at different radiation doses. Noise reduction was important in identifying certain types of lesions. Detection was not accurate when(More)
