The use of ultrasound (US) in the diagnosis of renal vein thrombosis (RVT) remains ill defined because the classical features lack specificity. The authors report three cases of renal vein thrombosis with a common US pattern: hyperechoic streaks in the interlobulary spaces confirming previous reports with the same pattern. The pattern has been observed in(More)
Cell population kinetics was studied by bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) histochemical and 3H thymidine radioautographic labelling in dog thyroids. In-vivo labelling with BrdU and in-vitro labelling of incubated slices with 3H thymidine gave similar results. This validates the use of in-vitro labelling of slices for the study of cell kinetics in the thyroid.(More)
The acute effect of in vitro deendothelialization on the production of prostacyclin (PGI2) by the rabbit aorta has been investigated. The effectiveness of removing endothelium by rubbing it against filter paper or scraping it with a scalpel was demonstrated by scanning electron microscopy and en face examination after silver staining. Endothelium removal(More)
The authors describe the clinical and pathological observations of a thoracolumbar intramedullary ependymoma. A voluminous conus of collagenous tissue was located in the center of the tumor. This most unusual histological finding is compared to rare cases of the literature describing the presence of bone and cartilage in ependymomas.
The lysosomotropic amines are well-known inhibitors of lysosomal protein degradation. These drugs were used in dog thyroid slices to ascertain the role of the lysosome in thyroglobulin hydrolysis and in hormone secretion. NH4Cl (1-20 mM) and chloroquine (5-500 microM) inhibited, in a concentration-dependent manner, the TSH-stimulated secretion. The high(More)
Diagnosis of pneumoconiosis was made in 2 dental technicians presenting with interstitial lung disease. The occupational origin of inhaled dust was confirmed by mineralogic analyses, which disclosed mainly large amounts of chromium-cobalt-molybdenum particles originating from Vitallium prostheses, but also showed abrasives (silica and silicon carbide) and(More)
Anti-neutrophil-cytoplasm antibodies recently have been reported as serologic markers of Wegener's granulomatosis. We describe two cases in which this test appeared to be of great value in the diagnosis of Wegener's granulomatosis presenting as acute respiratory failure, a clinical setting in which it may be the only diagnostic test that can be safely and(More)
Eighteen sequential follow-up measurements of pulmonary function were obtained over a period of 21 months after heart-lung transplantation in a patient who had undergone surgery for end-stage pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis. In the early postoperative period, there was a moderate decrease in VC and TLC but gas exchange was maintained at essentially(More)
The proportions of various cells types were studied in the thyroids of a variety of dogs used for laboratory experiments. A remarkable constancy was found with epithelial cells accounting for 70% of the total number of cells. The relative proportions of luminal and epithelial cells spaces were also very similar in different animals (47% and 26%(More)
