22 common carotid to intracranial internal carotid artery bypass grafts with interposition saphenous vein were performed in 20 patients over a four year period. The distal anastomosis was end-to-end on the internal carotid artery at a site between the ophthalmic and posterior communicating arteries. Early occlusion (rendered patent with Urokinase) occurred(More)
Nine mercury-resistance plasmids isolated from river epilithon were assessed for their ability to retrotransfer the non-conjugative IncQ plasmid, R300B, derivatives of which have commercial uses that may result in accidental or deliberate release into the environment. Retrotransfer frequencies ranging from 2.1 x 10(-4) to 1.75 x 10(-5) were obtained for(More)
Background/aims High viscosity silicone oils are used as tamponade agents to increase the resistance to emulsification; however, this makes the oils more difficult to inject. Increasing the extensional viscosity is one way to reduce emulsification. This study aimed to evaluate how silicone oils with increased extensional viscosity behave in terms of their(More)
OBJECTIVES Triclosan is in widespread use in domestic, commercial and healthcare settings and is used to reduce methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) load in carriers. Triclosan resistance is uncommon, usually being due to mutation in fabI or overexpression of efflux pumps. This study investigated the ability of triclosan-containing silicone(More)
The effect of dilution rate on the instability kinetics of Escherichia coli RV308(pHSG415) during glucose-limited continuous culture is examined. Two nonlinear models are fitted to the data, both of which characterize the plasmid-host system in terms of the rate parameters R (for the plasmid segregation rate) and d mu (for the specific growth rate(More)
The authors report two cases of treatment by intraarterial papaverine of cerebral vasospasm complicating the resection of an arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Both cases had successful reversal of vasospasm documented on angiography. In the first case sustained neurological improvement occurred, resulting in a normal outcome by the time of discharge. In the(More)
The incidence and natural history of cerebral cavernous malformations remain poorly defined. MRI now provides anaccurate means of diagnosis and follow-up of these lesions. Hereditary cavernous angiomata have been reported in several racial groups, revealing asymptomatic family members with significant numbers of lesions. We report a family of Anglo-Saxon(More)
This is a case report of a 47-year-old man admitted with a 7-month history of disequilibrium, multiple reversible vertebrobasilar ischemic attacks, and one submaximal completed stroke in the left posterior inferior cerebellar artery distribution. Vertebrobasilar ischemic attacks continued despite anti-coagulation, and orthostatic symptomatology suggested a(More)
