To investigate whether the abnormalities of antisaccades in schizophrenics could be explained by a dysfunction of the frontal cortex, we examined 10 patients with frontal cortical lesions and 22 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease with mild symptoms (Yahr I-II) using the same tasks, and compared the results with those obtained in schizophrenics.(More)
This study compared pathophysiological and biochemical indexes of acute lung injury in a saline-lavaged rabbit model with different ventilatory strategies: a control group consisting of moderate tidal volume (V(T)) (10-12 ml/kg) and low positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) (4-5 cmH(2)O); and three protective groups: 1) low V(T) (5-6 ml/kg) high PEEP, 2-3(More)
The effect of steady-state increases in abdominal pressure (Pab) on cardiac performance was studied in seven acutely instrumented swine with pneumoperitoneum (PP). The animal was placed on volume-preset ventilation, and PP was created by air insufflation. Cardiac output (CO), right atrial (Pra), left atrial (Pla), pericardial (Ppe), and abdominal inferior(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVE The authors present the case of a 14-year-old boy with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RSTS) presenting scoliosis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA There have been no reports on surgery for RSTS presenting scoliosis. METHODS The patient was referred to our hospital for evaluation of a progressive spinal curvature. A standing(More)
The effect of chronic cerebellar stimulation on respiratory muscle coordination has been evaluated using a relatively simple and objective target breathing test on one patient. Seven normal subjects were used as controls. Magnetometer recordings were used to determine whether abdominal and rib cage expansion were in phase. Subjects were asked to match their(More)
