We sought to determine sensitivity of the cortical impact injury model of traumatic brain injury (TBI) to severity of injury and to treatment. We examined the pattern of motor and cognitive deficits and recovery following TBI over a range of injury severities, and examined the efficacy of surface-induced moderate hypothermia at three disparate injury(More)

Pyogenic arthritis of the hip in neonates remains a serious problem. The sequelae of delay in diagnosis and treatment can be crippling. Five hips, in four neonates, with a presumed diagnosis of septic arthritis were examined with ultrasonography. In two hips ultrasonography found intracapsular effusion. In the remaining three hips there were no pathological(More)
W ith medical advances, mortality and morbidity rates associated with myocardial infarction (MI) have declined dramatically (1). Nevertheless, cardiogenic shock is the most common cause of death after an acute MI, followed by left ventricular (LV) rupture (2). A pseudoaneurysm, albeit rare (3), is more likely to rupture than is a true aneurysm and thus is a(More)
Epiaortic ultrasound is an imaging modality that is commonly used to evaluate the ascending aorta for atheroma and other mural lesions during elective cardiac surgery. Its use in contained aortic rupture has not been established. We present a case of thoracic trauma with contained pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta. At operation, the precise location of(More)
