BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Activation of endothelial cells and platelets is an important mediator of atherothrombosis. Markers of endothelial cell and platelet activation such as soluble adhesion molecules can be measured in plasma. We hypothesized that patients with acute ischemic stroke would have increased blood concentrations of soluble E-selectin and von(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal method of reducing the risk of surgical site infection (SSI) after dermatologic surgery is unclear. Empiric, preoperative antibiotic use is common practice but lacks supporting evidence for its efficacy in preventing SSI. Risk stratification for patients at high risk of postoperative SSI based on a nasal swab is a viable strategy when(More)
A 19-year-old Sudanese woman, who had lived for about a decade in Ugandan refugee camps, was referred for investigation of a 12-month history of a generalised rash. Two months later, her condition had deteriorated to include cachexia and drowsiness. Despite initial negative findings on investigation, human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) was suspected, and(More)
Malignant melanoma is a major contributor to Australian morbidity and mortality. In this era of resource rationalisation, we seek to address the issue of whether routine full-skin examination by a dermatologist, rather than focussed examination of flagged lesions, will increase melanoma diagnosis. A retrospective chart review was undertaken between 1 July(More)
An 88-year-old man presented to the dermatology outpatient clinic with an 11-month history of a rapidly growing mass overlying a clavicular fracture site. The lesion was 8 x 6 cm, painful, fixed to deeper structures and ulcerated. Superficial and deep biopsies yielded invasive basal cell carcinoma. Imaging demonstrated extensive soft tissue invasion into(More)
The significance of clear cell change (clear reticulated cytoplasmic change) in the secretory portion of eccrine glands remains an enigma. It has been postulated to be a product of defective cellular glucose metabolism and potentially a predictor of diabetes. A series of 61 specimens from 38 patients were assessed to establish any demographic, seasonal, or(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present statistical methods and models we used to find out factors that caused fatal car crashes and high damage cost. The benefit of our project is that the Virginia DMV can make some adjustments accordingly and reduce the number of crashes that are fatal and have high damage cost. The data we used is between 2010 and 2014(More)
