In the present study intermediate-density lipoproteins (IDL) and very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) composition, structure, and mass were analysed in fasting uraemic patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) (n = 12) and on haemodialysis (HD) (n = 15), and in 15 healthy volunteers. All the groups were matched for sex, age, and time on(More)
Purpose To quantify initial changes in the vascular tumor burden (VTB), a measure of the area of vascularized tumor on computed tomographic (CT) images, and predict tumor response to antiangiogenic therapy in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Materials and Methods For this institutional review board-approved HIPAA-compliant secondary(More)
407 Background: The objective of this study is to predict progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in metastatic RCC on sunitinib therapy using initial post-therapy CT imaging changes as a biomarker. METHODS An IRB-approved HIPAA-compliant analysis of CT imaging and survival data from 213 randomly selected patients on sunitinib therapy(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the levels of the atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) and the renin system in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) with patients on chronic hemodialysis (HD). We studied three groups. The CAPD group comprised 10 patients (25-66 years); the HD group: 10 patients (35-69 years), before (pre-HD) and after(More)
Congenital abnormalities of the liver are rare with prior descriptions of lobar or segmental agenesis, Reidel's lobe, and ectopic hepatic lobes. Intrathoracic ectopic hepatic lobes have been reported in many instances; however, there is only one documented case of abnormally positioned liver tissue within the inferior vena cava (J Chapman-Fredricks, R(More)
This case involves the rare congenital disorder Sirenomelia, a diagnosis initially suspected during prenatal ultrasound and later confirmed by prenatal MRI. Sirenomelia, or mermaid syndrome, is mainly characterized by variable fusion of the lower limbs and by genitourinary anomalies. The vast majority of cases of this disease result in death secondary to(More)
Purpose To determine whether use of the liver surface nodularity (LSN) score, a quantitative biomarker derived from routine computed tomographic (CT) images, allows prediction of cirrhosis decompensation and death. Materials and Methods For this institutional review board-approved HIPAA-compliant retrospective study, adult patients with cirrhosis and Model(More)
