BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The centrality-index (C-Index), preoperative aspects and dimensions used for anatomic (P.A.D.U.A.) classification, and radius.exophyic/endophytic.nearness.anterior/posterior.location (R.E.N.A.L.) nephrometry schemes were developed as standardized scoring systems (SS) to quantify anatomic characteristics of kidney tumors. The objective(More)
Three methods are presented which provide statistically acceptable estimates of mean transit time of opacified blood during angiography. While the methods vary in precision, the selection of the method appropriate for any particular experimental model depends on the degree of precision required to demonstrate the effect under investigation. As the day(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that the proinflammatory cytokine macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is elevated in the circulation of patients with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI) relative to uninjured subjects, and secondarily to identify additional immune mediators that are elevated in subjects with chronic SCI. DESIGN Prospective,(More)
This is a study of the metabolic and distal cardiovascular/cerebrovascular outcomes associated with the use of second-generation antipsychotics (SGAs) compared to antidepressants (ADs) in adults aged 18-65 years, based on data from Thomson Reuters MarketScan® Research Databases 2006-2010, a commercial U.S. claims database. Interventions included clinicians'(More)
Meglumine iothalamate (280 ml I/ml) and sodium iothalamate (400 mg I/ml) in doses of 700 mg I/kg bw, were injected i.v. as a bolus in dogs. Renal size, urine flow rate, arterial pressure, renal blood flow and mean transit time and renal blood volume were measured before and after injection. All changes were qualitatively and quantitatively identical for(More)
BACKGROUND The annual incidence of urothelial carcinoma continues to increase, and it is projected that greater than 70,000 new cases will occur in the year 2015. However, as much as 23% of cytologic specimens will demonstrate some degree of atypia without meeting the criteria for urothelial carcinoma and thus will be reported as atypical. METHODS The(More)
