A multicentered prospective trial to investigate the usefulness of the AO spinal internal fixator for the treatment of thoracolumbar fractures and fracture-dislocations was undertaken. This pedicle screw-rod system was effective in stabilizing a variety of unstable fracture patterns. It was effective in decompressing the canal of retropulsed bony fragments(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate carboplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin (JEB) in children with malignant extracranial germ cell tumors (GCTs). PATIENTS AND METHODS Malignant GCTs in children aged 0 to 16 years were excised without major morbidity or otherwise biopsied. Stage I testicular and some ovarian GCTs were resected and monitored with alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)(More)
A 19 month old Indian girl with tyrosinaemia developed a severe generalised neuropathy involving both phrenic nerves. Treatment with haemarginate failed to improve her condition. After liver transplantation the raised concentrations of the neurotoxin delta amino-laevulinic acid returned to normal and gradual but complete neurological recovery occurred over(More)
Of 254 adults admitted over a period of two years to the Head Trauma Service, 29 (11%) had ten previously undiagnosed fractures and/or dislocations and 29 had previously undetected peripheral neuropathies. The average delay in diagnosis was 57 days. Only one fracture, a fracture-dislocation of the thoracic spine, was of major consequence. Median, ulnar, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe clinical and radiographic characteristics of vascular loops occupying the internal auditory canal. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING A retrospective review of patients with lesions initially suggestive of neoplasm, such as acoustic neuroma, who were subsequently found to have vascular compression of the facial and/or cochleovestibular nerves.(More)
Eight patients with end-stage renal failure on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), who developed peritonitis, received an intraperitoneal dose of vancomycin (30 mg/kg body weight) with 6 h of peritoneal dwell and then resumed their routine CAPD schedule. Vancomycin concentration in serum, peritoneal dialysate (PD) from an overnight dwell and(More)
Behavioral changes in male Sprague-Dawley rats during early and late withdrawal from morphine were investigated. Morphine-treated subjects (M) were implanted (SC) with osmotic pumps containing 2.0 ml of a 159 mg/ml morphine sulfate solution while control subjects (C) received sham implants. Implants were removed after 7 days. M subjects exhibited a(More)
The efficacy and tolerability of acarbose was studied in type 2 diabetic patients eating a typical Jamaican diet. The study was an open label parallel group study without placebo control. Of the 51 subjects recruited, five (9.8%) did not complete the study and were excluded from further analysis. Six (13%) of the remaining 46 had adverse side effects and(More)
With increasing use of computerized tomography and ultrasonography, asymptomatic lesions of the adrenal gland are frequently detected. One such tumor is the adrenal myelolipoma, composed of adipose and hemic elements histologically resembling bone marrow. This tumor can be diagnosed by its characteristic appearance on CT scan, and fine-needle biopsy guided(More)
BACKGROUND Acute gastrointestinal disease occurs commonly in horses. Novel biomarkers might improve the understanding of SIRS and aid diagnosis and determination of prognosis. HYPOTHESES Increased plasma concentrations of the biomarkers HMGB-1 and nucleosomes are associated with severity of gastrointestinal lesions in horses; concentrations of these(More)
