First-parity 305-d milk yield and intervals between first and second kiddings from 1975 through 2005 were analyzed to estimate genetic and environmental parameters for United States Alpine, LaMancha, Nubian, Saanen, and Toggenburg dairy goats. The data set included 43,612 does with first-parity milk yield and 25,863 does with first kidding interval.(More)
We sought to determine whether Tourette syndrome (TS) was related to attentional disturbance independent of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obsessive-compulsive symptoms (OCS), two comorbid conditions associated with attentional problems in other populations. Participants were 74 children [21 with uncomplicated TS (TS-Only), 14 with TS(More)
The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of nondepolarizing muscle relaxants and waiting time on muscle fasciculations after succinylcholine in anaesthetized patients. Adult men and women, 60-80 kg, received pretreatment doses of atracurium 5 mg (n = 160), pancuronium 1 mg (n = 123), d-tubocurarine 3 mg (n = 97), or vecuronium 1 mg (n = 62).(More)
A 40-year-old man fell on his outstretched arm and suffered a fracture of the index metacarpal base with subluxation of the thumb basal joint. The small fracture fragment at the base of the index metacarpal was attached to the base of the thumb metacarpal by a strong ligament, as noted at the time of surgery. This pattern of injury, a ligament-reversed(More)
Recent Food and Drug Administration estimates indicate that the anabolic steroid market has reached the $100 million level. Although the news media report steroid-related deaths, there is little in the medical literature communicating the clinical implications concerning these drugs. Electrolyte disturbances, coagulopathies, hypertension, and dysrhythmias(More)
To aid in improvement of breeding programs for production and reproduction traits of US dairy goats, breed differences over time were documented and genetic parameters were estimated. Data were from herds with ≥2 breeds (Alpine, LaMancha, Nubian, Oberhasli, Saanen, or Toggenburg), but only purebred data were analyzed. Three kidding periods were examined:(More)
Linear or nonlinear genetic relationships between productive life and functional productive life at 72 mo, with final score (SCO), stature, strength, dairyness (DAI), teat diameter, rear legs (side view), rump angle, rump width (RUW), fore udder attachment (FUA), rear udder height, rear udder arch, udder depth (UDD), suspensory ligament (SUS), and teat(More)
