Intra-ocular pressure changes during maximal isometric contraction: does this reflect intra-cranial pressure or retinal venous pressure?
- R. Dickerman, G. Smith, L. Langham-Roof, W. Mcconathy, J. East, A. B. Smith
- Neurological research
- 1 April 1999
Recent publications have suggested that intra-ocular pressure (IOP) may be an indirect assessment of intra-cranial pressure (ICP). Both IOP and ICP have similar physiologic pressure ranges and… Expand
Sudden cardiac death in a 20-year-old bodybuilder using anabolic steroids.
Anabolic steroid use is widespread and has been associated with a variety of pathological conditions. The subject of this case is a 20-year-old amateur bodybuilder who died of sudden cardiopulmonary… Expand
Anabolic steroid-induced hepatotoxicity: is it overstated?
- R. Dickerman, R. Pertusi, N. Zachariah, D. R. Dufour, W. Mcconathy
- Clinical journal of sport medicine : official…
OBJECTIVE There have been numerous reports of hepatic dysfunction secondary to anabolic steroid use based on elevated levels of serum aminotransferases. This study was conducted to distinguish… Expand
rh-BMP-2 can be used safely in the cervical spine: dose and containment are the keys!
Acute intracranial subdural hematoma following a lumbar CSF leak caused by spine surgery.
Posterior lumbar interbody fusion.

- Journal of neurosurgery. Spine
- 1 February 2007
Object. Previous studies of surgical complications associated with posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) are of limited value due to intrastudy variation in instrumentation and fusion techniques.… Expand
Basis of persistent and recurrent Cushing disease: an analysis of findings at repeated pituitary surgery.
OBJECT The goal of this study was to establish the clinical importance of occult dural invasion--invasion of the dura mater or cavernous sinus that is not evident on imaging studies and is not… Expand
Left Ventricular Wall Thickening Does Occur in Elite Power Athletes with or without Anabolic Steroid Use
Reports on the occurrence of left ventricular wall thickening in resistance-trained athletes have rejected the possibility for this physiological adaptation to occur without concomitant anabolic… Expand
Failure rate of frontal versus parietal approaches for proximal catheter placement in ventriculoperitoneal shunts: revisited
- R. Dickerman, W. Mcconathy, J. Morgan, Q. Stevens, M. Mittler
- Journal of Clinical Neuroscience
- 1 September 2005
Early studies on ventriculoperitoneal shunt malfunctions demonstrated that proximal catheter obstruction was the most common cause for shunt malfunction and choroid plexus was the primary culprit for… Expand
Middle cerebral artery blood flow velocity in elite power athletes during maximal weight-lifting
Abstract Cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) has been shown to significantly increase during dynamic exercise (running) secondary to increases in cardiac output. Static exercise (weight-lifting)… Expand
