Ewing's sarcoma, which is regarded as one of the most lethal primary bone tumors, lies in the domain of the orthopedic surgeon because it occurs most commonly in the shaft of the long bones, especially in the lower extremities. Pain, leukocytosis, fever, anemia, and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate are commonly seen. We are presenting a case of(More)
We derive general analytical formulas for assessing risks in a problem domain where the<lb>risk depends on three interrelated variables. More specifically, we derive general analytical<lb>formulas for propagating beliefs in a network where three binary variables, A, B and C, are<lb>related to a fourth binary variable Z through an ‘AND’ relationship.

This investigation retrospectively studied relationships between survival in human immunodeficiency virus-seropositive outpatients receiving recent therapies (n = 77) and two markers of nutritional status, serum albumin and percent of usual body weight. Subjects were observed for an average of 186 +/- 8 days; 19% died within the study period. Kaplan-Meier(More)
Congenital hypothyroid dwarfism was diagnosed in a family of Giant Schnauzers. Three female and two male puppies from different litters were evaluated for dwarfism, lethargy, somnolence, gait abnormalities, and constipation. On physical examination, disproportionate dwarfism (n = 5), macroglossia (n = 3), hypothermia (n = 3), delayed dental eruption (n =(More)
The efficacy of mefenamic acid, aspirin, and a placebo for control of postendodontic pain was compared in a double-blind, randomized study of 150 patients. Medication was begun immediately prior to the endodontic therapy and continued for a total of eight doses. The results were analyzed in terms of the patients' assessments of postendodontic pain, the need(More)
BACKGROUND As long-term vascular access becomes more prevalent among patients with AIDS, it is becoming more important to consider their potential complications. METHODS One hundred two central venous access devices placed in 84 patients with AIDS were reviewed for septic and mechanical complications. Catheters were inserted by one surgeon by means of the(More)
Acute pancreatitis is observed in patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) (4-22%), and is reported with increasing frequency as a complication of therapy in human immunodeficiency virus-spectrum disease. The cause is multifactorial (virus, neoplasm, drugs), and the natural history generally mild and uncomplicated. 2',3'-Dideoxyinosine(More)
The pharmacokinetic parameters for 50 patients undergoing continuous extravascular perineural bupivacaine infusions for the treatment of their chronic pain were studied. The total plasma clearance (CL), volume of distribution (Vz), and elimination rate (lambda z) were estimated from two blood samples. These parameters were compared to values obtained from(More)
The analgesic effectiveness of meclofenamate sodium (Meclomen) at two dose levels, 200 mg and 100 mg, was compared with the effectiveness of a placebo and aspirin, 600 mg, in a double-blind study of 174 adult outpatients who had undergone removal of impacted third molars. When compared with the placebo, meclofenamate sodium at either dose level produced a(More)
