There have been only a few small studies of patients with an infected shoulder replacement treated with a single-stage exchange procedure. We retrospectively reviewed 35 patients (19 men and 16 women) with a peri-prosthetic infection of the shoulder who were treated in this way. A total of 26 were available for clinical examination; three had died, two were(More)
The hypothesis that in hypertensive patients with renal parenchymal disease sympathetic activity is "inappropriately" elevated and that this overactivity is a feature of renal disease and not of a reduced number of nephrons per se is addressed. Fifty seven patients with renal disease (various causes, no diabetes, all on antihypertensive medication) were(More)
Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality importantly influence live expectancy of patients with chronic renal disease (CKD). Traditional risk factors are usually present, but several other factors have recently been identified. There is now evidence that CKD is often characterized by an activated sympathetic nervous system. This may contribute to the(More)
The vascular endothelial growth factors VEGF-C, VEGF-D and its receptor, VEGFR-3, are overexpressed in different malignancies and associated with lymph node metastasis and poor prognosis. We analysed these factors in clear cell (ccRCC) and papillary (pRCC) renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The results were correlated with various clinicopathological parameters(More)
BACKGROUND Sympathetic hyperactivity has been associated with adverse clinical outcome and is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARB) have been shown to reduce sympathetic activity in CKD patients. The present study was performed to investigate whether(More)
Although clindamycin is recommended for prophylactic use in oral and maxillofacial surgery, there is little data available regarding its ability to provide sufficient tissue concentrations at the operative site. We investigated tissue samples from 31 patients, who had to undergo oral and maxillofacial surgery and who received at least one dose of 600 mg(More)
Enalapril and losartan reduce but not normalize sympathetic hyperactivity in patients with hypertensive chronic renal failure (CRF). This study assessed the effect of chronic eprosartan on BP and sympathetic activity, and assessed the effect of moxonidine during chronic eprosartan treatment. In 11 stable patients with CRF (creatinine clearance 47 +/- 10(More)
We studied 58 childhood B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) in Brazilian sample patients at the time of diagnosis to investigate the prevalence of the cryptic t(12;21)(p13;q22). All bone marrow specimens were G-band karyotyped, and commercial dual-color DNA probes were used to search for fusion signals in nuclei. The karyotype analysis showed(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Hypertension is common in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. It may contribute to cardiovascular risk and to progression of renal failure. RECENT FINDINGS Apart from fluid overload and renin activation, hypertensive patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease also have increased sympathetic(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) p24 antigenemia was assessed in a longitudinal study of 52 homosexual men who developed serum antibody to HIV. Antibody seroconversion to HIV as defined by a positive HIV enzyme immunoassay (EIA) confirmed by Western (immuno-) blot was associated with three major patterns of HIV antigenemia. In the first pattern, a(More)
