In an effort to identify the role of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in the treatment of patients with medullary sponge kidney, a retrospective review of our experience with the Dornier HM-3 lithotriptor is presented. From 1986-1991 17 patients with medullary sponge kidney ranging in age from twenty-eight to fifty-eight years received 31(More)

DESIGN Consecutive assessment of the three forms of care was completed. SUBJECTS The study included three groups of 25 stroke inpatients on the stroke(More)
We bring together those systems of hydrodynamical type that can be written as geodesic equations on diffeomorphism groups or on extensions of diffeomorphism groups with right invariant L 2 or H 1 metrics. We present their formal derivation starting from Euler's equation, the first order equation satisfied by the right logarithmic derivative of a geodesic in(More)
Thrombocytopenia of the type found in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is described in a family with a deficiency of antihaemophilic factor, and a capillary abnormality. The propositus (father) has thrombocytopenia and abnormal platelet morphology, together with a plasma deficiency of antihaemophilic factor, but normal capillaries. His two daughters each(More)
Long-term effects of extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) on female fertility remain a concern. Thirty-nine women of childbearing age who were treated for distal ureteral stones were surveyed. The mean age of these women was 33 years, and the average stone size was 6.9 mm. The mean calculated radiation exposure to the ovaries and the uterus was 7.53(More)
