OBJECTIVE This report describes the extended follow-up of a cohort of 46 399 automobile manufacturing workers with potential exposure to metalworking fluids (MWF). The outcomes of interest were cancers of the esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum, liver, pancreas, larynx, skin, prostate, and brain, as well as leukemia. Additional follow-up increased the power(More)
OBJECTIVE Results are presented for a registry-based study of hepatobiliary cancer (liver and biliary tract) nested in a cohort of workers from three automobile manufacturing plants with potential exposure to metalworking fluids. METHODS Altogether 63 cases of hepatobiliary cancer were identified from the cohort by the Michigan cancer registries. Each(More)
Of 456 consecutive carotid endarterectomies performed at the University of California, San Diego, 127 were in patients who had sustained a previous completed stroke and had recovered with minimal but permanent neurologic deficits (PNDs). Operative mortality for the entire series was 0.9%, but it was 3.1% for the stroke group. A postoperative PND was(More)
Selective intra-arterial infusions of streptokinase (SK) were made in 50 arteries of 45 patients with a variety of acute thromboembolic conditions. The most common regimen was 5,000 units of SK/hour for 24 to 48 hours with a simultaneous heparin infusion of 250 to 500 units/hour. Significant lysis occurred in 80% of cases, with 74% of the patients(More)
Because simultaneous noninvasive noncontrast imaging of cervical and cerebral vasculature and brain is possible with magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and imaging (MRI), the following study was undertaken from July 1990 to January 1992. One hundred twenty-eight patients were examined with General Electric 1.5 Tesla MRI systems. Axially acquired(More)
At the New York University Medical Center from January, 1969, through December, 1973, esophagogastrostomies were performed in 56 patients. In 30 (Group A), fundoplications were combined with the esophagogastrostomies; in the other 26 (Group B), esophagogastrostomies only were performed. These two groups have been compared in an effort to determine the(More)
Until recently aortography was performed routinely for elective abdominal aortic aneurysm at our institution. A death resulting from this procedure prompted us to evaluate this policy by a retrospective study of 105 elective aneurysm patients. These studies identified 21 renal artery stenoses, 2 renal artery aneurysms, 2 cases of multiple renal arteries, 8(More)
Inferior vena caval obstruction is an unusual but important clinical problem for which adequate treatment previously has not been available. Recently, a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) graft with external rigid spiral supports was developed that appeared particularly applicable to the venous system. In 18 dogs a 15 cm length of Impraflex was placed from the(More)
Results are presented from a case-control study of 97 cases of pancreatic cancer nested in a cohort of workers from three automobile manufacturing plants. Risk was examined for lifetime exposure to straight, soluble, and synthetic metalworking fluids, as used in specific machining or grinding operations, as well as for constituents of the fluids. Pancreatic(More)
