To determine whether exercise training has an effect on left ventricular diastolic dysfunction associated with the normal aging process, we studied a group of 20 normal healthy adult distance runners (mean miles currently run per week was 45 for an average of 15 years) and 20 normal healthy sedentary individuals (who currently walk less than 1 mile per day(More)
Epidemiologic studies of coronary artery disease have largely overlooked the role of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins circulating in the post-prandial state. We have conducted a case-control study in males which examined fasting plasma lipoproteins and lipoproteins circulating 4 h after ingestion of a test meal containing fat and cholesterol. The cases were(More)
Sialography, non-contrast computed tomography (NCCT), and CT sialography (CTS) were compared in 40 patients with parotid disease. While NCCT and CTS proved to be superior to sialography in most cases, with NCCT being as good as CTS for demonstration of parotid masses, sialography was preferred over both NCCT and CTS for evaluation of inflammatory disease.(More)
The effects of weight reduction and metoprolol (100 mg, b.d.) in the treatment of hypertension (diastolic blood pressure 90-109 mmHg) in 56 young, overweight patients were investigated in a randomized placebo controlled trial. After a 4-week baseline, subjects were followed up for 21 weeks. In the weight reduction group, the fall in systolic and diastolic(More)
Weight reduction was compared with metoprolol (200 mg daily) in a randomised placebo-controlled trial of first-line treatment of mild hypertension (diastolic blood pressure 90-109 mm Hg) in 56 overweight patients aged under 55 years. After 21 weeks of follow up the weight-reduction group had lost an average of 7.4 kg. The fall in their systolic pressure of(More)
Various techniques have been used for reduction of displaced radial neck fractures in children. Eighteen children with displaced radial neck fractures were treated by percutaneous reduction with a Steinmann pin after failing closed reduction. Reduction was successfully accomplished for 15 patients. The three patients failing percutaneous pin reduction had(More)
To define the nature and risk of complications associated with Kock pouch urinary diversion after high dose radiation (more than 4,500 rad), we analyzed the clinical course of 44 irradiated patients and a comparable group of 42 selected retrospectively from the nonirradiated patient cohort. Of the 42 patients in the irradiated group 18 had received 4,500 to(More)
