Twelve cryptorchid patients had sonographic evaluation of the inguinal region prior to surgical orchiopexy. When the testis was within the inguinal canal, the gonad was localized preoperatively by sonography in eight of nine patients. One patient had an associated inguinal hernia in which loops of bowel concealed the gonad. There were no false positive(More)

Considerable investigation has been devoted to the gastric dilatation-torsion complex. An adequate explanation of its cause has yet to be made, or a means of prevention described. We do know of its highly lethal nature, especially if not aggressively treated, of the high incidence of recurrence, and of the associated pathophysiology. As surgeons, we must(More)
Ring annelation of the [(aminomethyl)aryloxy]acetic acids produced a series of substituted 6,7-dichloro-2,3-dihydrobenzofuran-2-carboxylic acids. Pharmacologic evaluation of these compounds in rats and dogs indicated that several congeners are extremely potent salidiuretics. Clearance and micropuncture experiments in rats for compound 5a confirmed the(More)
High-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) is commonly encountered on prostate needle biopsies and, based on epidemiologic, molecular, and animal models, has proven to be the most significant risk factor for prostate cancer and likely represents the premalignant phase of prostatic adenocarcinoma. This lesion is characterized by cellular(More)
Small quantities of the non-toxic residue of phenol-killed, acetone-washed, and methanol-extracted tubercle bacilli of the BCG strain conferred a high degree of resistance on mice against otherwise lethal experimental infection with Klebsiella pneumoniae and with a number of other pathogenic bacteria. The heightened resistance reached a peak within 24 hours(More)
A series of substituted 5,6-dihydrofuro[3,2-f]-1,2-benzisoxazoles was prepared and evaluated for their saluretic and uricosuric properties. Pharmacological evaluation of the title compounds was carried out in mice, rats, dogs, and monkeys. The diuretic/saluretic nature of these compounds was observed in all species, whereas the uricosuric activity was best(More)

In this paper, I argue that bioethics suffers from a masculinist approach--what I call "ethical androcentrism." Despite the genesis of other legitimate approaches to ethics (such as feminist, narrative, and communicative ethics), this masculinist tradition persists. The first part of my paper concerns the problem of ethical androcentrism, and how it is(More)
