BACKGROUND Accurate and reliable laboratory methods are needed for estimation of HIV-1 incidence to identify the high-risk populations and target and monitor prevention efforts. We previously described a single-well limiting-antigen avidity enzyme immunoassay (LAg-Avidity EIA) to detect recent HIV-1 infection. METHODS We describe here further optimization(More)
The surgeon must ultimately accept the responsibility for any complications that occur as the result of a cochlear implant. Listening to the cochlear implant team members and responding to their needs may enhance the child's progress. Surgical complications, (i.e., skinflap problems, infection, and facial paralysis) are indeed infrequent, but nonsurgical(More)
This report presents 10 patients with Zenker's diverticulum who were evaluated with simultaneous solid-state manometry and fluoroscopy. With this method, intrabolus forces are determined. Each patient had abnormal intrabolus forces regardless of the size of the diverticulum and cricopharyngeal muscle dysfunction. In the literature, there has been(More)
Periorbital and orbital cellulitis are clearly two distinct disorders with different etiologies. Periorbital cellulitis is well-documented as a more common infectious process limited to the eyelids in the preseptal region. In contrast, orbital cellulitis represents a more severe, but less common, infection of the orbit posterior to the septum with or(More)
Periorbital cellulitis is a commonly occurring infectious process limited to the eyelids in the preseptal region. It occurs with greater frequency in the pediatric age group. It is important to distinguish this disease from orbital cellulitis, a potentially lethal infectious process involving the contents of the orbit. A retrospective study of clinical and(More)
