OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether combined assessment of autonomic tone plus cardiac electrical substrate identifies most patients at risk of serious events after myocardial infarction (MI) and to compare assessment at 2 to 4 weeks versus 10 to 14 weeks after MI. BACKGROUND Methods to identify most patients at risk of serious events after(More)
SummaryRenal cell cancer is the main malignant tumour of the kidney and has an increasing incidence. This type of tumour has a poor prognosis and shows intrinsic resistance to several anti-cancer drugs. The CYP3A P450 family, which consists of three closely related forms, is involved in the oxidative activation and deactivation of a variety of carcinogens(More)
The Kodak Ektachem (Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, NY) is a new clinical chemistry analyzer that uses an enzymatic method to measure creatinine. The authors report the case of a patient with falsely elevated creatinine levels that were caused by the presence of 5-fluorocytosine. A review of the literature confirmed that this can occur, but well documented(More)
BACKGROUND Pedal fat pad atrophy is associated with pain, decreased tissue thickness, and increased foot pressures. To date, no objective studies investigating the use of fat grafting to the forefoot have been performed. The authors hypothesize that pedal fat grafting can reduce pain, increase tissue thickness, and decrease pedal pressures. METHODS A(More)
Clinical and histopathologic material from 42 patients with peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) was reviewed. The median age was 63.5 years (range, 11-97 years). The male:female ratio was 2.8:1. Prior immune or lymphoproliferative diseases occurred in 36% of the patients. PTCL was advanced at presentation with B symptoms (67%), generalized adenopathy (69%),(More)
INTRODUCTION: Pedal fat pad atrophy is associated with pain, decreased tissue thickness, and elevated foot pressures. To date, no objective studies have investigated the utility of injecting fat into the forefoot to treat this costly and debilitating form of lipoatrophy. We hypothesize that pedal fat grafting can reduce pain, improve function, increase(More)
