Five captive moose calves each infested with 42,000 larval Dermacentor albipictus, six calves each infested with 19,000-21,000, and five control moose were observed for changes in hair-loss, body condition and number, stages, and distribution of the tick. Winter hair-loss was observed only in moose infested with ticks and was correlated positively with the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in objective assessment of prostatic cryosurgery and the role of MR imaging in the modification of prostatic cryosurgical technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight consecutive patients with localized (T1-3, N0, M0) prostatic adenocarcinoma treated with(More)
Marked subgross differences in the distribution of the bronchial artery in 10 mammalian species and in humans were found using thin-slice latex injection preparations. Described are variations in distribution to the pleura, interlobular septums, distal airways, alveoli, and the presence of bronchial artery-pulmonary artery anatomoses. The bronchial artery(More)
Assuming the maximum copper level 210 g per cent was administered to the patient, the copper dose administered would be approximately 3.15 mg/day, normal copper intake as quoted by the authors 2-3 mg/day.2 The authors suggest that a dose of six times this amount (20mg) is acceptable. If one takes into account that the average expired copper level was 134 g(More)
Postmortem and biopsy lung samples were examined with a dissecting microscope and classified into three categories: no overdistended air spaces visible, mild destruction and some fenestration of the septa with minimal confluence of air spaces, and more advanced breakdown of alveolar walls with at least a sixfold increase in air space to a 1300 mu diameter.(More)
A lung biopsy obtained from a patient following a second occurrence of idiopathic spontaneous pneumothorax was studied by electron microscopy. A remarkable increase in septal mass was a notable finding. Proliferation of the interstitium was due to an abundance of collagen and elastic fibers. In additon, a proliferation of type 1 and type 2 epithelial cells(More)
