Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured during rest and cognitive activation in 21 patients with a major depressive episode and 21 healthy subjects. Depressive patients had significantly lower rCBF during rest in the right global, frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal regions and in the left global and frontal regions. During mental activation(More)
Retransplantation (re-TX) is the only available therapy for irreversible liver graft dysfunction. The outcome of a second procedure depends upon several factors, some of which are not defined at the time of the decision to retransplant. This study is an analysis of all re-TX of the liver performed at our unit between January 1995 and January 2004. Among the(More)
The behavioral phenotype and genotype of conduct disorder (CD) differ in males and females. Abnormalities of white matter integrity have been reported among males with CD and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Little is known about white matter integrity in females with CD. The present study aimed to determine whether abnormalities of white matter are(More)
INTRODUCTION Maintenance of high tissue oxygenation (PtO2) is recommended during surgery because PtO2 is highly predictive of surgical site infection and colonic anastomotic leakage. However, surgical site perfusion is often sub-optimal, creating an obstructive hurdle for traditional, systemically applied therapies to maintain or increase surgical site(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated limb perfusion with tumor necrosis factor alpha and melphalan (TM-ILP) has proven to be a successful option in treating advanced soft tissue sarcomas (STS), where amputation otherwise is needed to achieve safe surgical margins. METHODS From 2000 to 2009, 54 patients with locally advanced STS, who all were candidates for amputation,(More)
A previously reported theory for quantitative cerebral blood flow measurement for nondiffusible radiotracers has been applied to patients after stroke and to volunteers undergoing a mental stimulation exercise. Quantitative measurements of cerebral blood flow pattern in p-a and lateral projections of the brain are obtained using the short lived (30s)(More)
