While much is known regarding the incidence and pattern of fractures during growth, information is sparse as to how many children fracture repeatedly and how many remain fracture-free during growth. The Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study, a birth cohort, whose members were questioned regularly throughout growth (at ages 5, 7, 9, 11, 13,(More)
The purpose of this report is to record a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) associated acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and leukemia cutis who had blast expression of the neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) and to review the world literature on prognostic implications of extramedullary myeloid cell tumors (granulocytic sarcoma, myeloblastoma,(More)
OBJECTIVES (1) For crashes on a public road, to compare serious cyclist crashes involving a motor vehicle with cyclist crashes not involving a motor vehicle, in terms of threat to life and length of stay in hospital. (2) To determine the proportion of all serious crashes involving cyclists on public roads which are recorded by the police. (3) To determine(More)
BACKGROUND Reticulocyte phenotyping is used for transfused patients, who have red cell antibodies, to match blood for subsequent transfusion. Current methods are labor-intensive and require a significant amount of sample. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS A simple dual-color flow cytometry method developed for antigen typing of reticulocytes in mixed red cell(More)
An asymptomatic man was found to have bilateral small pulmonary infiltrates on a preoperative chest roentgenogram. Over a 4-wk period there was rapid progression of the infiltrates with a clinical picture suggestive of adult respiratory distress syndrome. Open lung biopsy showed a high grade lymphoma filling and distorting the pulmonary parenchyma. Flow(More)
Periorbital masses are often referred to oculoplastic surgeons. We report a 20-year-old patient presenting with a tender supertemporal mass that on gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a prominent dural enhancement adjacent to the mass, the so-called "dural tail sign." This sign has been reported to be highly specific for a(More)
OBJECTIVE This study piloted procedures and obtained data on intervention acceptability to determine the feasibility of a definitive randomised controlled trial (RCT) of the effectiveness of a computer-based brief intervention in the emergency department (ED). DESIGN Two-arm, multi-site, pilot RCT. SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Adolescents aged 12-17 years(More)
We report a patient with a history of T-cell ALL in remission who presented with symptoms and laboratory values consistent with subacute thyroiditis but was found to have leukemic thyroiditis as the first clinical manifestation of leukemic relapse. Bone marrow examination at this time demonstrated recurrent ALL. After successful re-induction with(More)
Objective. This study explores the association of patient and emergency department (ED) mental health visit characteristics with wait time and length of stay (LOS). Methods. We examined data from 580 ED mental health visits made to two urban EDs by children aged ≤18 years from April 1, 2004, to March 31, 2006. Logistic regressions identified characteristics(More)
INTRODUCTION Procedural sedation and analgesia have become standard practice in paediatric emergency departments worldwide. Although generally regarded as safe, serious adverse events such as bradycardia, asystole, pulmonary aspiration, permanent neurological injury and death have been reported, but their incidence is unknown due to the infrequency of their(More)
