The pharmacokinetics of 5-fluorouracil were studied over a 60-min period in rats that received 12.5, 25.0, and 50.0 mg/kg iv. The plasma concentration-time relationship and the detectability in bile and parotid saliva (a route of elimination heretofore given little or no attention) were examined. Protein binding of 5-fluorouracil at concentrations chosen to(More)
Patients (pts) may present for lead extraction with symptomatic or asymptomatic subclavian vein or superior vena cava thrombosis. Replacement of permanent pacemaker leads (PPLs) in these pts may be difficult and may require accessing a new site. We examined the utility of replacing PPLs through completely occluded vessels using extraction sheaths as(More)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), a decapeptide synthesized and released by the hypothalamus, regulates production and release of the gonadotropins luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the adenohypophysis. Parenterally administered GnRH was initially used diagnostically as a test of adenohypophyseal reserve of LH and FSH.(More)
A telectronics 330-801 atrial active fixation lead with multiple J retention wire fractures was extracted. Separation of the distal electrode occurred due to antecedent inner conductor fracture between the endocardial electrode pair. Techniques for removal of the free distal electrode are described, including use of biopsy forceps and a snare.
