A method for purifying chromaffin cells from adult, bovine, adrenal medullae and the techniques for maintaining the cells in suspension culture for at least 14 days are presented. Perfusion of medullae with a collagenase-containing medium produced a cell fraction that contained, in addition to chromaffin cells, a significant percentage of non-chromaffin(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Dissection of the carotid and vertebral arteries is most accurately diagnosed with conventional angiography. MR techniques are sensitive for detecting the abnormalities associated with dissection but may lack specificity. We hypothesized that MR may be useful for serial monitoring of dissection and may therefore guide therapy. (More)
We report a four-generation kindred with a balanced 13q14q Robertsonian translocation. The proband had the Down sydrome, due to trisomy of chromosome 21; he also carried the balanced D-group translocation. S segregation analysis of 86 sibships was performed to examine the risk of t(13q14q) carrier parents having trisomy 21, 47,XXY, or trisomy 13 children by(More)
A family with three children with trisomy 21 in which the mother is a phenotypically normal, trisomy 21/normal mosaic was studied. Chromosome 21 fluorescent heteromorphisms were used to document that two of the three number 21's in two of the Down syndrome offspring were of maternal origin. Five cytogenetic surveys in which both parents of a child with(More)
Magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of the brains of 11 patients aged from 1 week to 12 years with a distinctive type of cerebral palsy were selected based on distribution of cerebral lesions, which were restricted to bilateral perirolandic cortical and subcortical regions, including frequent symmetric involvement of basal ganglia and ventrolateral nucleus of(More)
Data from the medical treatment group of the Aspirin in TIA study were reviewed, and prospective analysis of patients with asymptomatic bruits was performed to see whether carotid stenosis (0 to 49% or 50 to 99%) or ulceration produced an increased risk of ipsilateral TIA or infarct. In symptomatic arteries, greater than 50% stenosis without ulceration(More)
We report the unique combination of a mid anterior choroidal artery (AChA) aneurysm and ischemic stroke presenting as a movement disorder in a young man. The mechanism for stroke in the AChA territory may either reflect a cause or an effect of aneurysm formation. We provide evidence for both arguments and speculate on the anatomic basis for the initial(More)
