Epidemiological data suggest a protective effect for estrogen replacement therapy on colon cancer. The estrogen receptor (ER) is required for the action of estrogen. The ER-beta isoform is functionally similar to ER-alpha but has a distinct pattern of expression and transcriptional response to selective estrogen response modulators. Our goal was to(More)
Breast cancer tissue has been shown to contain alternatively spliced estrogen receptor alpha (ER-alpha) mRNA variants, which have altered biological activities compared to the full-length ER-alpha. The development of endometrial cancer, as well as drug resistance in breast cancer patients undergoing tamoxifen therapy, may represent altered ER-alpha function(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to compare mortality and blood product use in patients who received recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) for traumatic hemorrhage to a matched historic control. METHODS Trauma registry data of bleeding trauma patients who received rFVIIa (40 microg/kg, repeated once if needed) included 28-day mortality; pre- and(More)
Peripheral artery disease (PAD), secondary to atherosclerotic disease, is currently the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the western world. While PAD is common, it is estimated that the majority of patients with PAD are undiagnosed and undertreated. The challenge to the treatment of PAD is to accurately diagnose the symptoms and determine(More)
BACKGROUND Although the presence, extent, and severity of obstruction in patients with lower extremity peripheral artery disease (LE PAD) affect their functional status, quality of life, and treatment, it is not known if these factors are associated with future cardiovascular events. We empirically created an anatomic runoff score (ARS) to approximate the(More)
OBJECTIVE Central aortic stiffness and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are associated with increased incidence of devastating aortopathies. However, the exact mechanism leading to elevated aortic stiffness in patients with COPD is unknown. The purpose of this study was to quantify flow and shear hemodynamic indices, known markers of vascular(More)
OBJECTIVE The incidence of morbidity and mortality for iliac vascular injuries in the literature are likely overestimated owing to associated injuries. Data for isolated iliac vascular injuries are very limited. No large studies have reported the incidence of morbidity for repair versus ligation of isolated iliac vein injuries. METHODS Patients in the(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment for symptomatic peripheral artery disease includes lower extremity bypass surgery (LEB) and peripheral endovascular interventions (PVIs); however, limited comparative effectiveness data exist between the 2 therapies. We assessed the safety and effectiveness of LEB and PVI in patients with symptomatic claudication and critical limb(More)
BACKGROUND Trauma is the leading cause of injury and death for individuals aged 1-44 years. Up to 8% of the US population participates in winter sports, and although vascular injuries are uncommon in these activities, little is published in this area. We sought to identify the incidence, injury patterns, and outcomes of vascular injuries resulting from(More)
