The elbow flexion test was investigated in 204 elbows in 102 normal volunteers. The effects of various wrist and shoulder positions were also studied. In 20 elbows in 15 persons (10%) flexion tests were positive with the wrist and shoulder in neutral position. In 27 elbows in 20 persons (13%) tests were positive with wrist extension and shoulder abduction.
The role of vasoactive intestinal peptide (V.I.P.) in nerve regeneration was investigated by assessing the changes in immunoreactive V.I.P. levels in rat sciatic nerves following injury and repair. 60 rats were divided into three surgical groups and one control group: In group I (primary repair), sciatic nerves were divided and immediately repaired; in… (More)
UNLABELLED A papillary fibroelastoma is a rare, avascular, cardiac tumour that is often found incidentally using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). Peripheral i.v. injection of a microbubble contrast agent is often used to characterize abnormal masses within the heart allowing further delineation of physical features, the area of attachment, and… (More)
Considerable pathophysiologic changes accompany cirrhosis. Elevation of portal venous pressure predisposes to esophageal varices and hematemesis. The physiologic changes associated with pregnancy may exacerbate these conditions. Medical management of cirrhosis-associated problems may fail, necessitating surgical intervention. The anesthetic management of a… (More)
We aimed to define normal ranges for vibration sense as measured by vibratory perception thresholds (VPTs) using biothesiometry. We performed biothesiometry in a community-dwelling sample of 901 people aged 55 to 85 years who did not have diabetes. We quantitated the variation between repeat measures using analysis of variance and Bland–Altman plots. We… (More)
Myopathy is a group of muscle diseases that can be induced or exacerbated by drug-drug interactions (DDIs). We sought to identify clinically important myopathic DDIs and elucidate their underlying mechanisms. Five DDIs were found to increase the risk of myopathy based on analysis of observational data from the Indiana Network of Patient Care. Loratadine… (More)
A 10-year review of stones in children at the St. Louis University Hospitals is presented. Stones related to infection were seen most often and urinary diversion secondary to congenital abnormalities of the urinary tract was the most frequent predisposing cause. The morbidity of stones in children is high.
The mechanisms underlying protamine-induced hypotension and bradycardia were the subject of this investigation. Six groups of dogs with intact circulation were tested in controlled circumstances with various drugs. The following parameters were observed: femoral arterial pressure, central venous pressure, left ventricular pressure and its rate of rise, left… (More)
