INTRODUCTION Universal infant heptavalent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV-7) immunization, dosed near to the originally recommended schedule of a 3-dose series in the first 6 months of life, then a booster between 12 and 15 months, should reduce nasopharyngeal (NP) carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae (Spn) PCV-7 types. The reduced availability of PCV-7(More)
The repair of a ventral hernia in an obese patient presents an interesting clinical challenge. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 55 patients who, over a 12-year period from 1983 to 1995, concomitantly underwent both ventral herniorrhaphy and panniculectomy or abdominoplasty. In six of 55 patients, the hernia was recurrent. Forty-six patients had(More)
We studied the efficacy of coronary angioplasty (PTCA) of the infarct-related artery in 54 patients with recurrent myocardial ischemia in the zone of prior infarction. Our patients had recurrent ischemia 10 +/- 7 days after infarction, with 75% experiencing rest angina and 15% having evidence of reinfarction. Angiography of the infarct-related artery(More)
Patients undergoing coronary angioplasty who have had a prior transmural myocardial infarction in the distribution of a contralateral coronary artery are considered a high-risk group because of potentially severe left ventricular dysfunction if an ischemic complication occurs. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of coronary(More)
