A Prospective Study of Sudden Cardiac Death among Children and Young Adults.
TLDR
The addition of genetic testing to autopsy investigation substantially increased the identification of a possible cause of sudden cardiac death among children and young adults. Expand
Sudden death due to aortic rupture complicating undiagnosed coarctation of the aorta in a teenager - a case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
The case of an adolescent male who at autopsy was noted to have coarctation of ductal type with aortic dissection and haemopericardium is reported, suggesting the presence of this condition should be considered by the forensic pathologist confronted with aortal dissection, particularly in a young person. Expand
Distal Trapezius Musculocutaneous Flap for Upper Thoracic Back Wounds Associated With Spinal Instrumentation and Radiation
TLDR
The authors review their series of the upper back radiated wounds reconstructed with the trapezius musculocutaneous flaps, immediately at the time of the spinal surgery and secondarily after the incisional wound breakdown, to cover the exposed hardware. Expand
Issues in child homicides: 11 cases.
TLDR
Eleven cases of fatal child abuse are presented to illustrate and briefly discuss particular difficulties and reference is made to interaction with the legal process and parallel difficulties the law has with fatal child Abuse. Expand
THE AUTOPSY: LEGAL AND ETHICAL PRINCIPLES
TLDR
The legal and ethical issues with respect to postmortem examination in Australia are reviewed and potential offences and penalties should such obligations be breached are contemplated. Expand
"Buckle" rib fracture: an artifact following cardio-pulmonary resuscitation detected on postmortem CT.
TLDR
Recognition of buckle rib fractures and their characteristics on postmortem CT is of benefit to the forensic pathologist in evaluating the possibility of CPR and the differentiation of resuscitative artifact from forensically significant visceral injury observed at autopsy. Expand
Post-mortem pathologic and genetic studies in "dead in bed syndrome" cases in type 1 diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
This study is the first to investigate potential pathogenic mechanisms underlying the dead in bed syndrome in type 1 diabetes with the results substantially adding to knowledge of this condition. Expand
Postmortem concentrations of citalopram.
TLDR
The postmortem concentrations of citalopram in blood, bile, liver, and vitreous humour were investigated in 14 cases using a specially developed high performance liquid chromatography assay to determine a postmortem therapeutic and toxic range. Expand
Fatality due to amisulpride toxicity: a case report.
TLDR
A case of fatal amisulpride toxicity is reported where the post-mortem blood concentration was 48 mg/L, and a knowledge of the ability of antipsychotic agents to induce fatal cardiac arrhythmias should inform the approach to the autopsy. Expand
