Records of patients having TP from 1997 to 2005 were reviewed. Patient presentation, etiology of disease, and the indication for TP(More)
OBJECTIVES The extracellular signal-regulated kinase pathway of the mitogen-activated protein kinase signal transduction cascade has been implicated in the neuronal and endothelial dysfunction witnessed following cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. Extracellular signal-regulated kinase is activated by mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular(More)
OBJECTIVES Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) are important intermediates in the signal transduction pathways involved in neuronal dysfunction following cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. One subfamily, extracellular regulated kinase 1/2, has been heavily implicated in the pathogenesis of post-ischemic neuronal damage. However, the contribution of(More)
We report a case of a bronchial carcinoid tumor extending from the right upper lobe into the left mainstem bronchus in a 30-year-old woman. Diagnosis was established by preoperative bronchoscopy and biopsy. After extensive debulking with seven sessions of bronchoscopic neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser therapy, the tumor was resected by right(More)
