A retrospective analysis was undertaken in a consecutive series of 33 full-term infants (birth weight > 2500 g and a minimum of 37 weeks gestational age) with symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) admitted to a regional neonatal intensive care unit from January 1986 to December 1992. Eleven infants were born in our institution; 17 were male. The… (More)
From 1985 to 1991, 13 children were diagnosed at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Saint Francis Medical Center, with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) by magnetic resonance imaging scan. Ages ranged from newborn to 5 years. Six children were premature neonates, five were term neonates and two were 5 years old. In the premature… (More)
The authors report two patients with closed head injury who suffered laceration with rupture of the third portion of the vertebral artery. One patient died suddenly, with angiographic evidence of bilateral vertebral artery rupture. The mechanism of injury to the C1-2 segment of the vertebral artery relating to head and neck injury is discussed.
While fetal cranial sonography has been used for the sensitive detection of ventriculomegaly, ancillary imaging techniques may be needed for precise delineation of structural abnormalities. This report outlines the radiologic and clinical results using maternal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in ten patients with suspected fetal intracranial anomalies.… (More)
Five cases of the Dandy-Walker malformation are described using the magnetic resonance (MR) scan as a primary imaging technique. The patients' ages ranged from 34 weeks (in utero) to 41 years; their clinical and neuroanatomical characteristics encompassed the entire spectrum of the malformation. Clear visualization of the greatly enlarged posterior fossa,… (More)
Tide gates form a temporal barrier to fish migration, closing during the flood tide and opening during the ebb, primarily for flood prevention and land reclamation. Their impact on downstream adult migration of the critically endangered European eel, Anguilla anguilla, is unknown. The River Stiffkey, UK, has three top-hung tide gates (one counterbalanced,… (More)
Back-to-back hadron pair yields in d+Au and p+p collisions at √s(NN)=200 GeV were measured with the PHENIX detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Rapidity separated hadron pairs were detected with the trigger hadron at pseudorapidity |η|<0.35 and the associated hadron at forward rapidity (deuteron direction, 3.0<η<3.8). Pairs were also detected… (More)
Anthropogenic structures (e.g. weirs and dams) fragment river networks and restrict the movement of migratory fish. Poor understanding of behavioural response to hydrodynamic cues at structures currently limits the development of effective barrier mitigation measures. This study aimed to assess the effect of flow constriction and associated flow patterns on… (More)
