The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of dental caries and the use of dental services in a pediatric population of Mexican-American migrant workers. The results were compared with the Mexican-American child population from the Hispanic Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (HHANES). One hundred thirty three-to-sixteen-year-old children(More)
Bilateral catamenial pneumothorax occurred in a 32-year-old parous woman. The 41 previously reported cases of catamenial pneumothorax occurred on the right side. This patient was treated with left-sided pleurodesis and, subsequently, with hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The pathologic mechanism of this peculiar syndrome has been attributed(More)
A study was made of the relation of brain blood flow and oxygen consumption to changes in perfusion flow rate during cardiopulmonary bypass at 20 degrees C in nine cynomolgus monkeys. Four perfusion flow rates varying from 0.25 to 1.75 L X min-1 X m-2 were randomly instituted, each for a 10 minute period. At the end of each period, brain arteriovenous(More)
Twenty-six patients with atrioventricular discordance and a variety of ventriculo-arterial connections have had appropriate intracardiac repairs. Seven of 26 patients (26.9%) died early postoperatively, but only two (11.1%) of 18 patients operated upon since May 1972 have died. Ten patients (40%) developed permanent complete heart block. Two patients died(More)
Whole body oxygen consumption (Vo2) and its relationship to randomly selected arterial perfusion flow rates (Q) during profoundly hypothermic (20 degrees C) cardiopulmonary bypass were determined in 17 adult patients undergoing routine coronary artery bypass operations. Vo2 falls progressively as Q decreases, from 33 +/- 8.2 ml . min(-1) . m(-2) at Q of 2.0(More)
Physicians who provide primary care for children are considered to be in a unique position to provide dental preventive care to their patients. No literature relates the amount of preventive oral health education that physicians receive during training. The purpose of this study was to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs of pediatricians and family(More)
We recently evaluated a premature infant with intralobar pulmonary sequestration which presented with signs of CHF. The infant initially underwent ligation of a PDA but subsequently developed tachycardia, tachypnea, and a continuous murmur which radiated to the back. The diagnosis of a pulmonary sequestration was suggested by Doppler echocardiography and(More)
Abnormality of white blood cell number or function has been viewed by some as a relative contraindication to operations done with cardiopulmonary bypass. We have operated upon three patients, each with a different white blood cell abnormality, with good results. We do not believe these patients should be denied operation.
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to determine the feasibility of early extubation of the neonate and young infant after surgical repair of congenital heart lesions. METHODS The records of all patients less than 90 days of age who had cardiac operations over a 1-year period were reviewed. During this time, all patients were managed as potential(More)
