INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS The aim of the study was to describe effectiveness and safety of percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) at 2 years in women with overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome unresponsive to pharmacotherapy. METHODS Of 30 women who had initial positive response to PTNS, 23 continued to receive maintenance treatment and were(More)
Percutaneous fine needle aspiration (FNA) is the diagnostic method of choice for patients with a pancreatic mass. A positive cytologic diagnosis allows administration of neoadjuvant therapy in patients with resectable disease and avoids laparotomy in patients with locally advanced or metastatic disease. Ninety patients underwent computed tomographically(More)
Computerized transaxial tomography was carried out on 50 consecutive unselected patients referred to a neurologic practice for evaluation of focal epilepsy. Structural abnormalities were defined in 35.3 percent of these studies: porencephalic cysts in six patients, diffuse cerebral atrophy in five, cerebral hemiatrophy in three, focal cortical atrophy in(More)
A prospective, randomized, double-blind trial was designed to compare the duration of analgesia produced by intravenous morphine and methadone. Patients with intractable cancer-related pain were studied for 5-6 days. One-eighth of the patient's daily opiate requirement was supplied as an i.v. infusion of either morphine or methadone over a period of 15 min.(More)
A role for GH in the pathogenesis of diabetic retinopathy has long been postulated. Previous clinical studies, however, have been confounded by hyperglycemia. We have identified 2 cases of retinopathy associated with exogenous GH therapy in nondiabetic patients. Cases were identified through the MedWatch drug surveillance system of the U.S. Food and Drug(More)
Immature platelets—also termed reticulated platelets (RP)—are platelets newly released into the circulation, and have been associated with a variety of pathological thrombotic events. They can be assessed by flow cytometry after staining with thiazole orange (TO) or by using a module added to a fully automated analyzer that is currently in wide clinical use(More)
We studied electroencephalograms and computed tomographic scans of 54 patients with acute hemispheric strokes. Electrographic parameters evaluated included field, amplitude, frequency, persistence, and reactivity of focal or lateralized slow-wave activity. Ipsilateral and contralateral background activity were also assessed. Structural and clinical features(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the effect of 7 days nebulised fluticasone propionate (FP) with oral prednisolone on 24-h urinary-free cortisol excretion, systemic exposure and safety. This was a randomised, double-blind, double-dummy, two-way crossover study. Thirty-one children (19 male, 12 female, mean age 8 years) with stable asthma were randomly(More)
Dieulafoy's disease is a vascular anomaly characterized by the presence of a dysplastic artery that is related to an epithelial ulcer. While it is most frequently a GI condition, occurrence in the bronchus has been reported previously in six cases. We present the case of a 51-year-old man with severe hemoptysis and epistaxis. Chest radiographs showed(More)
