The first quantitative experimental data on growth dynamics of the primary cortical bone of young ratites demonstrate the following. 1) From hatching to 2 months of age, cortical thickness remains constant, thereby expressing equilibrium between periosteal bone deposition and an endosteal bone resorption. 2) Radial growth rates of the diaphyseal bone cortex(More)
The pharmacist shortage, increasing numbers of female pharmacy graduates, more pharmacy schools requiring faculty members, and a lower percentage of female faculty in academia are reasons to develop unique arrangements for female academic pharmacists who wish to work part-time. Job sharing is an example of a flexible alternative work arrangement that can be(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the addition of cilostazol to standard dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT) with aspirin and clopidogrel in patients receiving coronary stenting. DATA SOURCES Relevant information was identified through a search of MEDLINE (1966-November 2011), International Pharmaceutical Abstracts (1960-2011), and Cochrane Databases (publications(More)
BACKGROUND Despite several randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses, the ideal anticoagulant for patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains controversial. We performed an updated meta-analysis including recently reported randomized clinical trials that compare bivalirudin and heparin with or without provisional(More)
Diagnosis of deaths due to digestive disorders can be a difficult task. It is helpful if the carcass can be viewed for condition, position, and location before being moved from the pen in which it was found. A complete necropsy is absolutely necessary even though postmortem decomposition may be advanced. All thoracic and abdominal organs must be examined(More)
Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), originally developed as an alternative for vitamin K antagonists, are shifting the landscape of antithrombotic therapy. DOACs such as dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban offer enhancements in safety, convenience, and efficacy compared with warfarin. However, as choices for oral anticoagulation therapy have(More)
PURPOSE The activities of Memphis hospitals to meet National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) for warfarin therapy are described. SUMMARY In March 2008, leadership from the Mid-South College of Clinical Pharmacy (MSCCP), a local chapter of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy, commissioned a task force on anticoagulation, comprising pharmacy(More)
Ibutilide is an intravenous Class III antidysrhythmic approved for the treatment of recent onset atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. Pharmacological effect occurs within 30 min, and the efficacy approaches 40%. In contrast to DC electrical cardioversion, which requires anesthesia, pharmacologic cardioversion offers an alternative in which sedation can be(More)
BACKGROUND Data obtained during arrhythmia is retained in real-time cardiovascular magnetic resonance (rt-CMR), but there is limited and inconsistent evidence to show that rt-CMR can accurately assess beat-to-beat variation in left ventricular (LV) function or during an arrhythmia. METHODS Multi-slice, short axis cine and real-time golden-angle radial CMR(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of various doses of post-primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) bivalirudin infusion to prevent acute stent thrombosis (AST). BACKGROUND In several recent randomized controlled trials, bivalirudin infusion was continued post-PCI as either a full PCI dose (Biv-Full) or a reduced dose(More)
