We studied the time course for the reversal of rifampin's effect on the pharmacokinetics of oral midazolam (a cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 substrate) and digoxin (a P-glycoprotein (P-gp) substrate). Rifampin increased midazolam metabolism, greatly reducing the area under the concentration-time curve (AUC(0-∞)). The midazolam AUC(0-∞) returned to baseline with(More)
(ABSTRACT) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) has recently gained a lot of attention and is a potential candidate for Fourth Generation (4G) wireless systems because it promises data rates up to 10Mbps. A variation of OFDM is Multi-Carrier CDMA (MC-CDMA) which is an OFDM technique where the individual data symbols are spread using a spreading(More)
AIM To analyze patient demographics, pathology, surgical procedure and outcome in initial 24 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy in our department. METHODS Twenty four patients underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy between September 2000 and August 2005. There were 12 males and 12 females with a mean age of 44.6 years (range 25-68(More)
Emergency cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis in critically ill patients with organ failure and sepsis carries a high risk of morbidity and mortality. Temporizing interventions such as laparoscopic cholecystostomy can help the patient to recover from the critical illness by deferring the definitive procedure to a later, safer period. We describe our(More)
