Predictions concerning development, interrelations, and possible independence of working memory, inhibition, and cognitive flexibility were tested in 325 participants (roughly 30 per age from 4 to 13 years and young adults; 50% female). All were tested on the same computerized battery, designed to manipulate memory and inhibition independently and together,(More)
The proximally porous-coated, modular S-ROM femoral component was used in 52 complex total hip revisions done in 48 patients. These patients had severe bone loss, leg length inequality, and instability. Twenty-two patients required structural femoral allografts; 8 had previous resection arthroplasties for sepsis. The mean number of previous hip operations(More)
Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is a successful and recognised treatment option for patients with a number of haematological and non-haematological malignant and non-malignant conditions. Pulmonary complications both infectious and non-infectious are common after BMT. Multiple factors are thought to contribute to pulmonary complications, including the(More)
Although progress has been made in the diagnosis and management of respiratory complications after BMT, such complications are still frequent and are a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The use of CMV-negative marrow and blood products, surveillance bronchoscopies, and prophylactic use of antivirals have significantly reduced the incidence of CMV(More)
A laboratory animal technician experienced undulating fever, chills, and myalgia 3 days after he was bitten by a laboratory rat. The clinical symptoms subsided with antibiotic therapy, but recurrent fever, malaise, and joint pain occurred when therapy was discontinued. Streptobacillus moniliformis was cultured from the patient's blood.
Gastric foreign bodies were induced in laboratory rabbits by orogastric infusion of a liquid latex containing radiopaque dye which polymerizes in the acid environment within the stomach to form a solid mass. The rabbits were monitored clinically and radiographically for 6 months at which time gastrotomies were performed to remove the masses, followed by a(More)
The interactions of 2 capsular serotype A and 4 serotype D strains of Pasteurella multocida with rabbit polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) were compared in vitro, using a PMN phagocytic and bactericidal assay. Bacteria and rabbit PMN were incubated for 15 minutes. The suspensions were subjected to differential centrifugation and the percentage of(More)
Bleeding gastric ulcers were a major cause of morbidity and mortality in young swine subjected to surgery, chronic catheterization, and daily experimental manipulation. Some of the animals died suddenly due to exsanguination into the gastrointestinal tract, while others survived for several days following the onset of clinical signs. These signs included(More)
