In a case of double outlet right ventricle in a cat, initial examination revealed a holosystolic murmur and right-sided heart enlargement, as deduced from electrocardiography and thoracic radiography. On cardiac catheterization, it was determined that pressure in the right ventricle equaled that of the left ventricle. Angiography revealed a large(More)
A major problem associated with vascular grafting employing an artificial graft is the inflammatory response provoked by the graft and subsequent complications of classical acute rejection phenomena when the graft is implanted subcutaneously into human volunteers. The favorable results obtained by a preliminary study of subcutaneous implantation of amnion(More)
A retrospective study of needle biopsy of the kidney of 163 dogs and 34 cats was performed to evaluate its clinical value and postbiopsy complications. Complications included microscopic hematuria (41 of 53 cases in which urinalyses were performed within 48 hours following the biopsy), gross hematuria (4 dogs), and hydronephrosis (3 of 82 dogs and 1 of 19(More)
The presence of Goodpasture's (GP) antigen in the glomerular basement membrane (GBM) of the kidney was evaluated by indirect immunofluorescence in nine patients with familial nephritis from five kindreds. The GP antigen was not detected in seven males but was present in an affected sister and mother, an unaffected brother, and 13 normal controls. The(More)
Hyperglucosylated and normal human and rat albumin were injected intravenously into control and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Binding of injected human albumin to renal basement membranes was not observed by immunofluorescence microscopy in the diabetic or control rats irrespective of the form of injected albumin. However, human albumin was found as(More)
A case of permanent atrial standstill is described in a 10-month-old dog with ascites as a presenting complaint. The patient had absence of P waves in all leads in numerous ECG's and had a regular idioventricular rhythm. Pathologically, the patient had multiple areas of atrial and ventricular myocardial necrosis and fibrosis, with chronic active myocarditis(More)
Within 20 min after i.v. injection or unilateral renal perfusion of rabbit anti-rat proximal tubular brush border antigens (RARFAXIA) into rats, fluorescence microscopy (FM) demonstrated rabbit IgG (RIgG) in a linear fashion along the endothelial region of the glomerular capillary walls. This finding was confirmed by immuno-electron microscopy (IEM) which(More)
