BACKGROUND To evaluate the pathologic characteristics of the primary tumor relative to local control, survival, and freedom from distant metastases, an analysis was performed of 172 patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (intraductal carcinoma) of the breast treated with breast-conserving surgery and definitive breast irradiation. METHODS The clinical(More)
1. Four groups of New Zealand genetically hypertensive (GH) rats were treated with felodipine as follows: (A) from ages 4-12 weeks; (B) 4-20 weeks; (C) 4-12 weeks then withdrawn from felodipine till age 20 weeks; and (D) 12-20 weeks. 2. Effects on blood pressure (BP), left ventricular (LV) weight and the structure of myograph-mounted mesenteric resistance(More)
A technique is presented for the conservative irradiation of women with huge (size "EE") breasts. Patients are treated in a modified lateral decubitus position with an immobilization device. The technique is easily reproducible and allows favorable cosmetic outcome. The isodose plots for treatment with this technique are compared to treatment in standard(More)
The relative efficacy of three antihypertensive drugs in the prevention of further elevation of blood pressure (BP) and cardiovascular structural remodeling in 4-week-old genetically hypertensive (GH) rats was studied by means of two complementary methods, stereology and myography. Four to 10-week-old GH rats were treated with valsartan (10 mg/kg/day),(More)
Health care organizations are struggling to recruit information technology staff in a fiercely competitive market. Providers and insurers need more technology personnel to manage the growing number of systems their organizations are demanding.

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the results of peroneal bypass grafting for limb salvage with the results of other tibial and pedal bypass grafts performed concurrently. METHODS Thirty-four peroneal bypass grafts with autologous vein were performed for limb salvage between September 1986 and June 1992. These constituted 18% of an overall(More)
Ca sensitivity and sensitivity to diltiazem were studied in two strains of genetically hypertensive rat [spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and genetically hypertensive (GH) rats] and their normotensive control strains [Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) and normal Wistar (N) rats] at two ages before and after establishment of significant hypertension. Ca sensitivity(More)
