OBJECTIVES To assess the blood loss accompanying TURP and investigate its association with the resected weight of prostatic tissue, type of anaesthesia, type of presentation, histology, different surgeons and their differing techniques, and thus to reduce the morbidity associated with blood loss and transfusion. PATIENTS AND METHODS All prostatectomies(More)
Recently, intradialytic hypertension was reported to be associated with increased mortality for hemodialysis patients. To determine whether volume status plays a role in dialysis-associated hypertension, we prospectively audited 531 patients that had volume assessments measured by multiple-frequency bioelectrical impedance during their midweek dialysis(More)
The ability to predict the occurrence of neonatal periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage (PVH-IVH) would be useful in the design of clinical trials to prevent its occurrence. Therefore, data were collected from 463 consecutive infants less than or equal to 1500 g birth weight delivered between March 1, 1982 and February 28, 1985. This large population(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) have a high rate of adverse cardiovascular events, particularly when undergoing surgery. We sought to determine the effect of surgery and vascular disease on platelet and monocyte activation in vivo in patients with CLI. METHODS An observational, cross-sectional study was performed at a tertiary(More)
The objective of this paper is a retrospective study of all infants treated for congenital chylothorax at the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH), Melbourne, Australia and King Fahad National Guard Hospital (KFNGH), Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The charts of all infants with congenital chylothorax admitted to RCH over a period of 13 years, June 1982-August(More)
Many reports of the occurrence of periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage (PVH-IVH) are biased by the inclusion of both inborn and outborn infants. To obviate this selection bias we examined a large inborn population of low-birth-weight infants to determine if the incidence of PVH-IVH changed over a 3-year interval from March, 1982 through February,(More)
The aim of this retrospective study is to assess the value of routine ultrasonography in the detection of renal abnormalities. Twenty-nine pregnancies (one set of twins) with suspected renal abnormalities (i.e. renal cystic spaces, oligohydramnios or hyperechoic kidneys) were delivered over a two year period (1.8.1987-31-7-1989) in a unit where 90% of(More)
AIM We describe the detection of right sided cardiac abnormalities by Doppler ultrasonography of the lower limb veins. We also attempt to quantify the degree of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) by analysis of the femoral vein Doppler waveform (DW). MATERIALS AND METHODS The DWs of the lower limb veins were examined in 276 patients over a 17-month period. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY By providing a superior hemodynamic profile, the stentless valve design allows ventricular remodeling and may improve patient survival after aortic valve replacement (AVR). Compared with stent-mounted prostheses, implantation is more complex and requires a longer ischemic time; this may adversely affect surgical risk,(More)
Sir, A recent review of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO)-associated pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) cautioned re-challenge with the same or alternative rHuEPO products in the face of continued anaemia in patients with end-stage renal failure [1]. The mainstay of treatment should involve withdrawal of epoetin therapy, immunosuppression and supportive(More)
