A slightly cystic pigmented tumor was present in the right lateral ventricle infiltrating the thalamus and striatum. Metastatic implants were found in both temporal lobes and the cerebellum. The spinal cord was covered by black(More)
Cardiac rupture complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains a serious diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The authors present 27 consecutive patients who died from cardiac rupture following AMI. These included 22 patients from 1975 through 1983 (prethrombolytic era) and 5 patients from 1984 through 1992 (postthrombolytic era) and all had(More)
Mucoid impaction is defined as the obstruction of proximal bronchi by mucous plugs and exudates. There are striking similarities between patients with mucoid impaction and those with allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), often referred to as "mucoid microimpaction."

Ten pairs of mongrel dogs had bilateral femoral artery reconstruction using the femoral veins from the other of each pair. Four grafts failed in the first two weeks and 16 grafts failed in pairs within two to four weeks of each other up to 15 months. Five dogs died with patent grafts between 15 and 42 months and five dogs were sacrificed at 42 months with(More)
The angiographic appearances of histologically proven hepatic infarction without vascular occlusion has not, to our knowledge, been previously described. A case of non-occlusive hepatic infarction in a diabetic patient is presented and correlated with scintigraphic and microscopic findings. It would appear to be the first recorded case of hepatic infarction(More)
