Clinical studies have provided evidence that the progression of HIV-1-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) involves alterations in dopamine (DA) systems. Drugs of abuse that act on the brain DA system, such as cocaine (Coc), may exacerbate HIV-1 infection and consequent behavioral and neurological manifestations. In the present study, we used the(More)
PURPOSE In the search for calf deep vein thrombosis (DVT) with color-flow duplex scanning (CFDS), most vascular laboratories investigate only the posterior tibial and peroneal veins. Few laboratories assess the soleal and gastrocnemial veins. This study was designed to determine the patterns and distribution of isolated calf DVT, including the soleal and(More)
BACKGROUND Since elements of the Dialysis Outcome Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) were implemented a decade ago, there has been a reduction in mortality for patients on hemodialysis. As patient longevity has increased, AV access site preservation by salvaging failed arteriovenous (AV) accesses has become increasingly important. However, efforts to salvage an AV(More)
PURPOSE Following a Soave pull-through for Hirschsprung disease (HD), some children struggle with obstructive symptoms. We hypothesized that these symptoms could result from a functional obstruction of the pull through caused by the Soave cuff, and that cuff resection might improve bowel emptying. METHODS We reviewed patients referred to our center from(More)
Our objective was to review the results of carotid endarterectomies (CEAs) with Dacron patch angioplasty and intraoperative color-flow duplex scanning (CFS). In a 3-year period, patients who underwent CEA with Dacron patch angioplasty and intraoperative CFS were studied. We excluded patients who had primary closure, vein patch, and redo endarterectomy.(More)
PURPOSE The results of intraoperative and early postoperative carotid color-flow duplex scanning (CFS) after endarterectomy were reviewed to determine whether any perioperative studies could be eliminated. METHODS Patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy with intraoperative CFS between 1986 and 1997 were identified. Early postoperative CFS was performed(More)
