Fifty-four tumors or tumor-like conditions in bone were studied by numerically assessed 99m-technetium polyphosphate scintigraphy. The uptake was expressed as a ratio of the uptake in the tumor region to the uptake in a corresponding region in the contralateral part of the body. In the malignant tumors there was marked variation in the uptake within each(More)
Pitted erythrocytes counts are used in the quantitative assessment of functional hyposplenism and in the prediction of recurrence of splenic function in splenectomized subjects. Pitted erythrocyte counts were investigated in 16 patients splenectomized for hereditary spherocytosis, in 21 patients splenectomized for other reasons and in 23 healthy controls.(More)
In a randomized, double-blind study of 40 patients undergoing total abdominal hysterectomy, we have compared continuous subcutaneous infusion (CSCI) of morphine with discontinuous extradural injection of morphine for postoperative analgesia at rest and during cough. The CSCI group received a bolus of morphine 0.1 mg kg-1 i.v. at the end of the operation and(More)
OBJECTIVES The clinical classification of myocardial infarction (MI) into five types was introduced in 2007 as a component of the universal definition. A Type 5 MI was defined as a MI related to coronary artery bypass surgery. In a setting of patients undergoing elective coronary artery bypass grafting, we set out (i) to describe the pattern of multiple(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to evaluate the use of thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) in acute pain management after cardiac valve replacement and determine if the incidence of chronic pain related to the sternotomy was reduced by the use of TEA. This patient group was chosen to exclude pain related to the use of the internal mammary artery and(More)
The effects of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ) and captopril on functional capacity, hemodynamics and survival were studied in 154 rats that recovered after experimental myocardial infarction. Rats were randomized into four groups receiving either CoQ, captopril, a combination of the two drugs or 1 ml of tap water once daily for 12 weeks from the day of coronary artery(More)
Pheochromocytoma is a catecholamine-secreting tumour associated with varying symptoms ranging from episodic headache, sweating, paroxysmal hypertension and tachycardia to intractable cardiogenic shock. Cardiogenic shock is rare but well-described and the timing of correct management is crucial since mortality is high. Fifty per cent of pheochromocytomas are(More)
Numerical analysis of (99)Tcm polyphosphate distribution in 1 348 selected, non-pathologic joint pairs revealed a significantly higher right-sided accumulation in 37 per cent, a left-sided dominance in 21 per cent and no significant side difference in the remaining 42 per cent. The most common level of asymmetry was the shoulder joint.
Successful treatment of a case of post-transfusion purpura with high-dose i.v. human immunoglobulin is reported. A 62-year-old multiparous woman developed severe thrombocytopenia in the wake of transfusions given during and after vascular surgery. A platelet alloantibody with anti-Zwa-specificity was demonstrable by an indirect immunofluorescence technique.(More)
