A possible way to circumvent the continuing decline in the number of autopsies is to perform computed tomography after death. The present study compares the pathologic findings of postmortem CT tomography (PMCT) in trauma fatalities with those disclosed upon conventional forensic autopsy. Within 6 hours of death, the bodies of 25 trauma victims underwent(More)
Gradual increase of CD38 on cells expressing CD34 characterizes the early cell differentiation pathway of normal human hematopoietic progenitors. In this study the coordinated expression pattern of CD34 and CD38 was assessed on leukemic blasts from bone marrow aspirates of 95 patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Expression was divided(More)
Dysplastic hematopoiesis is the morphological hallmark of myelodysplastic syndromes. Dysplastic features in one or more lineages are also found frequently in bone marrow aspirates from patients with de novo AML and have been associated with an unfavorable prognosis. We asked whether dyshematopoiesis is an independent prognostic factor or an indicator of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether new-onset transient postoperative atrial fibrillation (TPAF) affects mortality rates after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair and to identify predictors for the development of TPAF. METHODS Patients who underwent open aortic repair or endovascular aortic repair for a principal diagnosis AAA(More)
