Rupture of an acute ascending aortic dissection into a surrounding cardiac chamber or pulmonary artery is an uncommon occurrence, and is often only diagnoses post mortem. Although fistulization (aortopulmonary and aorta-right atrial) after acute aortic dissection has been well documented in the literature, acute aortic dissection fistulizing into both the(More)
In a retrospective study of 185 patients with transitional cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis and ureter, of whom 127 were treated by total nephroureterectomy and 58 by conservative resection, the survival of those with superficial well differentiated tumours was greater than 90% in each group. When urothelium was left behind after conservative resection,(More)
The turnover of (125)I-high density lipoprotein (HDL) was examined in a total of 14 studies in eight normal volunteers in an attempt to determine the metabolic relationship between apolipoproteins A-I (apoA-I) and A-II (apoA-II) of HDL and to define further some of the determinants of HDL metabolism. All subjects were first studied under conditions of an(More)
The kinetics of apolipoproteins B and C were studied in 14 normal and hyperlipoproteinemic subjects after injection of exogenously (125)I-labeled very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles. Plasma radioactivities of apoB and apoC were determined over a period of 4 days in VLDL (d < 1.006) and total radioactivity in intermediate (IDL) (1.006 < d < 1.019),(More)
To identify patients at risk and assess management strategies, nine Datascope intraaortic balloon (IAB) ruptures in 8 patients were reviewed. This is a 2.4% incidence for this complication (382 insertions over 75 months). Time to initial rupture was 4.7 days, range 1.1 to 6.8 days. This was 1.3 days after the average intact device was removed. Women were(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate nutrient composition, voluntary DMI, and apparent DM digestibility of teff hay cut at 3 different stages of maturity to evaluate its potential as a preserved forage for horses. Six mature Quarter Horse mares (12 +/- 3 yr; 553 +/- 39 kg of BW) were used in a replicated balanced Latin square design with 3 periods(More)
