We hypothesized that agents very different from surfactant may still support lung function. To test this hypothesis, we instilled FC-100, a fluorocarbon, and Tween 20, a detergent, which have higher minimum surface tensions and less hysteresis than surfactant, into 15 full-term and 14 preterm lambs. FC-100 and Tween 20 were as efficient as natural(More)

Three patients are presented in whom massive intraperitoneal haemorrhage secondary to spontaneous rupture of HCC was diagnosed by computed tomography (CT). CT demonstrated a peripheral hepatic tumour and free intraperitoneal fluid with areas of(More)
