INTRODUCTION Organophosphate poisoning by oral or inhalation routes is characterized by a typical time-course of clinical features. CASE PRESENTATION We report a case of subcutaneous chlorpyrifos self-injection leading to a delayed cholinergic phase, prolonged coma, and severe permanent neurologic injury with electrophysiological patterns suggestive of(More)
Ringer's solution prime reduces colloid osmotic pressure and causes edema during cardiopulmonary bypass, while hydroxyethyl starch (HES) can be used to attenuate this effect. Fifty patients were classified into five equal groups: Group I (preoperative patients) is the control group and the other four groups (II, III, IV, V) received different volume ratios(More)
To identify predictors of brain death after successful resuscitation of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), with the goal of improving the detection of brain death, and to evaluate outcomes of solid organs harvested from these patients. Prospective observational cohort study in a medical and surgical unit of a nonuniversity hospital. Patients with(More)
Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) contribute to postnatal neovascularization. We identified the cytochrome P450 4A/F-20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (CYP4A/F-20-HETE) system as a novel regulator of EPC functions associated with angiogenesis in vitro. Here, we explored cellular mechanisms by which 20-HETE regulates EPC angiogenic functions and(More)
This is an attempt to establish the normal stretched penile length and prevalence of male genital anomalies in full-term neonates and whether they are influenced by prenatal parental exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals. A thousand newborns were included; their mothers were subjected to the following questionnaire: parents' age, residence, occupation,(More)
In order to standardize techniques and limit the effect of human factors on the results of analyses of biological fluids, automation seems to be mandatory. In an attempt to automate semen analysis, computer assisted sperm analysis (CASA) system has been developed, however its use is still limited and its practical applications have many criticisms. In a(More)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic demyelinating disease of the CNS with assumed autoimmune etiology. Human herpes viruses have probable effects on relapsing-remitting MS pathogenesis presumably through molecular mimicry and/or bystander mechanisms. In this study we probed the possible contribution of the two herpes viruses, human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6)(More)
Pediatric patients undergoing surgical correction of congenital heart diseases using cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are subjected to hypothermia. Core temperature is cooled down to 26-28 degrees C during CPB. Postoperative hypothermia in these patients remains a source of long-intensive care unit (ICU) stay. Therefore, this study was performed to build a(More)
The first brachial block was performed in 1884 by RJ Hall [1,2] by injecting cocaine to provide anaesthesia. Since then many methods have been described [1,2]. Several approaches have also been described for brachial blockade; these included interscalene, supraclavicular, infraclavicular, and the axillary approaches [3]. The access to the brachial plexus(More)
We report the case of a 72-year-old patient presenting in our ICU with persistent postoperative coma in a context of recent unexplored neurological dysfunction. Detailed medical history taking from the patient's family revealed he recently suffered from gait instability, urinary incontinence, and slight cognitive impairment. These constituted the clinical(More)
