A number of biochemical events accompany the development of chronic liver disease and its evolution into hepatic cancer. Low plasma zinc and high plasma copper levels have been observed in individuals with advanced hepatocellular liver disease. Moreover, many investigators have demonstrated an increase in serum estradiol levels in individuals with chronic(More)
Medical emergencies involving the gastrointestinal tract include bleeding, abdominal pain, diarrhea, toxic megacolon, pancreatitis, and hepatic failure. Each can be a cause for admission to an intensive care unit or occur de novo in a patient hospitalized in such a unit. The clinical presentation, management, and consequences of these varied(More)
OBJECTIVE AND BACKGROUND Orthotopic liver transplantation is both a difficult and a demanding surgical procedure. It is not unexpected that cardiovascular dysfunction is present in some individuals being evaluated for liver transplantation. Thus, all potential liver transplant recipients seen at this center undergo a full cardiac evaluation prior to being(More)
In an analysis of multihadronic events recorded at LEP by DELPHI in the years 1992 through 1994, charged hadrons are identiied using the measurement of their energy loss and their Cherenkov angle. Rapidity correlations of-, proton-proton, and-proton pairs are compared. The agreement with the string and cluster fragmentation models is tested. For those pairs(More)
A search for unstable heavy fermions with the DELPHI detector at LEP is reported. Sequential and non-canonical leptons, as well as excited leptons and quarks, are considered. The data analysed correspond to an integrated luminos-ity of about 48 pb 1 at an e + e centre-of-mass energy of 183 GeV and about 20 pb 1 equally shared between the centre-of-mass(More)
