PURPOSE We investigated the interexaminer reliability of transrectal ultrasound measurement of total prostate and transition zone volume among 3 examiners with various levels of experience. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 121 patients 39 to 82 years old (average plus or minus standard deviation 60.7 +/- 10.3) from a single urology clinic volunteered to(More)
A 62-year-old female with a history of progressive angina experienced an acute myocardial infarction. Seven days later, cardiac rupture ensued. She underwent surgical repair without the aid of extracorporeal circulation. A Teflon patch was glued over the myocardial tear with medical adhesive.

OBJECTIVES To study the variability of assessment instruments (symptom questionnaires and flow rate recordings) in healthy volunteers during repeat administration in short intervals. To study the effect of inclusion criteria-based censoring of patients during screening for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) treatment trials on the outcome of subsequent(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the interexaminer reliability and accuracy compared with transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) of a three-dimensional (3D) model and other scales to improve the estimation of prostate volume by digital rectal examination (DRE). METHODS Volunteers from a urology clinic (n = 121) were examined independently by three examiners with different(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the high incidence and the economic impact of the common cold, there are still no effective therapeutic options available. Although traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is widely used in China to treat the common cold, there is still a lack of high-quality clinical trials. This article sets forth the protocol for a high-quality trial of a(More)
INTRODUCTION Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major cause of morbi-mortality in early childhood and elderly. However, a test to measure the antibody responses after specific vaccination is not available in Colombia. OBJECTIVE An immunoenzymatic test was standardized for the measurement of serum IgG levels against 10 serotypes of S. pneumoniae in response to(More)
