PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of formocresol in the plasma of children undergoing oral rehabilitation involving pulp therapy under general anesthesia. METHODS Thirty 2- to 6-year-old preschool children were enrolled in the study. Preoperative, intra-operative, and postoperative peripheral venous samples were collected(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this retrospective study was twofold: a) to examine the behavior and physiology of pre-school children each sedated with 1 of 3 drug regimens based on patient age, dental needs, and pre-operative clinical impression; and b) to determine the association between pre-operative behaviors to the behavior and physiology of the sedated(More)
In neurosurgical patients with hyponatraemia (plasma sodium less than 130 mmol/l) and natriuresis, increased antidiuretic hormone (ADH) secretion may be appropriate rather than inappropriate. Ten such patients were studied prospectively to assess circulating ADH concentration and body fluid volumes. Compared with a control group, the mean plasma ADH level(More)
We have measured the optical properties of cancer and normal whole cells and lysates using light transmission spectroscopy (LTS). LTS provides both the optical extinction coefficient in the wavelength range from 220 to 1100nm and (by spectral inversion using a Mie model) the particle distribution density in the size range from 1 to 3000nm. Our current work(More)
The effects of mechanical stimuli on preserving muscle mass while transforming them into slow, fatigue resistant muscles have been studied in the rabbit. When combined, stretching and electrical stimulation (10 Hz) induce rapid and marked growth of muscles. This procedure also more rapidly activates the transformation process(es) than when either stretching(More)
Eu-, hypo- and hyper-thyroid rats were studied 12 days postpartum. Hypothyroidism was induced by administering propylthiouracil (PTU) via the mother's drinking water between late gestation and throughout lactation. This procedure effectively blocked the normal early postnatal surge of T3 and T4. In contrast, hyperthyroidism was induced in the young pups by(More)
