We report 2 cases of severe intravascular hemolysis after mitral valve repair using a Duran annuloplasty ring. In both patients residual mitral regurgitation was present, hemolysis was severe enough to warrant a second operation, and hemolysis ceased immediately after the second operation. We believe that a high-velocity regurgitant jet directed toward the(More)
From 1975 to 1985, a total of 1596 coronary artery bypasses or valve replacements resulted in 18 gastrointestinal tract complications in 16 patients at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati. Twelve patients were treated surgically (hemorrhagic duodenal ulcer, one patient; perforated duodenal ulcer, one patient; cholecystitis: acalculous, gangrenous, two(More)
An epidemic of encephalitis occurred in the eastern, paddy growing districts of Haryana state between July and November 1990. One hundred and eighty-two patients with encephalitis were admitted to different hospitals in Haryana and 118 of them expired (mortality rate 64.8%); 88% of the patients were children. The male to female ratio was 2. 3. 1. IgM class(More)
The benign condition of isolated first rib fracture is compared with the severity of intrathoracic injuries resulting from first rib fracture associated with multiple rib injuries. Seventy-five patients with 90 first rib fractures were divided into two groups. Group 1 (n = 13) included those with isolated first rib fractures and Group 2 (n = 62), those with(More)
Adsorption, electrokinetic and flotation studies have been carried out to investigate the interaction of guar gum with chalcopyrite. The adsorption density of guar gum onto chalcopyrite shows a weak adsorption maximum at pH 9.5. The adsorption isotherms exhibit Langmuirian behaviour. The electrophoretic mobilities of chalcopyrite are decreased in proportion(More)
The interaction of dextrin and guar gum with pyrite has been investigated through adsorption, flotation, and electrokinetic measurements. The adsorption densities of the polysaccharides onto pyrite reveal a region of higher adsorption density in the pH range 7.5–11, with a maximum around pH 10 for both polymers. The isotherms exhibit Langmuirian behavior.(More)
In this retrospective study, we reviewed the records of 62 patients who were treated at a tertiary care community teaching hospital between 1977 and 1987 for major arterial injury caused by blunt trauma. Nearly half (45%, 28/62) of the injuries were to the thoracic aorta, 24% (15/62) were to arteries of the head and neck, 21% (13/62) were to the arteries of(More)
[structure: see text] Palladium and platinum complexes of conformationally flexible 1,3-butadiene-bridged diphosphines NUPHOS can be resolved with (S)-BINOL at elevated temperatures to afford diastereopure delta-[(NUPHOS)M[(S)-BINOL]] (M = Pd, Pt). The homochiral Lewis acid complexes delta-[(NUPHOS)M][OTf](2), generated by protonation of(More)
