Seventy-eight patients with clinical findings pointing to possible polycystic ovarian disease (POD) were studied by ultrasound examination. The endocrine status of each patient was evaluated by assay of blood progesterone levels and gonadotropin luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone (LH-FSH), both under basal conditions and after luteinizing(More)
The authors report the principle data resulting from the study of 43 patients presenting pulsating abdominal masses: 21 aneurysms of the aorta have been documented, and the comparative results between echography and angiography compared with operatory findings in 15 patients. With echography, reliable diagnostic precision regarding the form and dimensions(More)
One hundred and eight patients presenting clinical symptoms of prostatic disease have been studied by suprapubic echography, with comparison of clinical and echographical diagnoses with the results shown by histological examination. The authors found the diagnosis by echography to be quite precise, not significantly differing from the results given by(More)
The size, shape, margins, and structure of the ovaries, as observed in 26 patients with polycystic ovarian disease were analyzed, and uterine/ovarian ratio (maximum antero-posterior diameter of uterine fundus divided for longitudinal diameter of ovary) was calculated. The maximum surface area of the organs ranged from 9.5 cm2 to 17.3 cm2 (average value 12.9(More)
Hemodialysis sessions are often complicated by the occurrence of intradialytic hypotension (IDH), mainly due to the decrease of central blood volume. Blood oxygen content may play a role in hypotension onset and can reflect changes in cardiac output and tissue perfusion. Currently, there is an increasing interest in intradialytic monitoring, through the(More)
