Acute rejection episodes are the most common cause leading to loss of renal grafts in the early postoperative phase. Doppler sonography presents a noninvasive tool to detect increased arterial blood flow resistance as a result of rejection. This can be measured by the increase in the resistive index (RI) and the pulsatility index (PI). In a prospective(More)

Data on 64 rejection reactions in 108 consecutive patients after renal transplantation (61 males, 47 females; mean age 42.8 +/- 12.9 years) were analysed to test what Doppler sonographic measurements can be used to predict whether a given drug regimen is able to suppress rejection. Results were compared with renal function and histological evidence of(More)
In the United States, there are more than 35, 000 reported suicides with approximately 1, 800 of them being psychiatric inpatients. Staff perform intermittent or continuous observations in order to prevent such tragedies, but a study of 98 articles over time showed that 20% to 62% of suicides happened while inpatients were on an observation schedule.(More)
