OBJECTIVES The aim of our study was to determine a superior thrombolytic regimen from three: anistreplase (APSAC), front-loaded recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) or combination thrombolytic therapy. BACKGROUND Although thrombolytic therapy has been shown to reduce mortality and morbidity after acute myocardial infarction, it has not(More)
GP50, a Taenia solium protein diagnostic for cysticercosis has been cloned, sequenced, and characterized. GP50 is one diagnostic component of the lentil lectin purified glycoprotein (LLGP) antigens that have been used for antibody-based diagnosis of cysticercosis in a Western blot assay for nearly 15 years. GP50 is a glycosylated and GPI-anchored membrane(More)
Rescue percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) has been used to establish reperfusion after failed thrombolysis, and the goal of this study was to examine the angiographic and clinical outcomes after rescue PTCA performed for an occluded artery 90 minutes after thrombolysis. Four hundred two patients with acute myocardial infarction were(More)
The Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome is an uncommon condition of uncertain pathogenesis and cause. The classic triad of signs includes recurrent orofacial edema, recurrent facial nerve palsy, and lingua plicata. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 36 patients (24 women and 12 men) with elements of the Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome. The complete(More)
We have studied two-body charmless hadronic decays of B mesons into the final states ππ, Kπ, and KK. Using 3.3 million BB̄ pairs collected with the CLEO-II detector, we have made the first observation of the decays B → Kπ, B → Kπ, and the sum of B → ππ and B + → Kπ decays (an average over charge-conjugate states is always implied). We place upper limits on(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the level of a single transverse scan of intra-abdominal fat between L1 and L5 vertebrae that best predicts intra-abdominal fat volumes. SUBJECTS Sixteen male and seven female patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, aged 44-74 y. OUTCOME MEASURES Volumes and areas from single scans of intra-abdominal fat measured by(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to review the safety and efficacy of partial fistulectomy with 3-layered primary closure without postoperative intubation for persistent tracheocutaneous fistula (TCF). DESIGN This is a retrospective study. SETTING The study was conducted in a tertiary care pediatric hospital. PATIENTS Records of 49 children treated(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of 1550-nm (Fraxel SR1500 RE:Store; Solta Medical, Hayward, California) nonablative laser treatment of facial surgical scars. METHODS In this prospective clinical study, a volunteer sample of 13 adults with Fitzpatrick skin types I to III and facial surgical scars with a postoperative duration longer than 6 months(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the determinants of coronary blood flow following thrombolytic administration in a large cohort of patients. BACKGROUND Tighter residual stenoses following thrombolysis have been associated with slower coronary blood flow, but the independent contribution of other variables to delayed flow has not been fully explored.
