A precise histologic and clinical delineation of infiltrating lobular carcinoma, including its variant forms, has been elusive. We studied 230 patients with stage I and II infiltrating lobular carcinoma treated by mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection. Included were 176 patients with the "classical" or "Indian-file" pattern (IFL) of infiltrating(More)
Central systolic blood pressure (SBP) may differ between individuals with similar brachial SBP, which may have implications for risk assessment. This study aimed to determine the variation and potential clinical value of central SBP between patients with similar brachial SBP. Brachial SBP was measured by sphygmomanometer and central SBP by radial tonometry(More)
CONTEXT Breast development in transwomen is an important issue, affecting general psychological functioning. Current hormonal therapies are imperfect, with 60% of patients requesting mammoplasty. INTERVENTIONS Interventions included the following: 1) comparing the effects on transwomen's requests for mammoplasty of estrogen valerate, ethinylestradiol, and(More)
We report the result of checking a scoring system for neonatal seizures in which information from the EEG, etiology, neurological examination, seizure type and birth weight are combined to predict neurological sequelae and to make decisions about treatment. The results for two samples are presented and compared. The first sample included 96 neonates; 103(More)
Twenty-two preterm infants with birth weights less than 1 400 g were measured weekly with transcephalic impedance and occipital-frontal head circumference. Mean caloric intake/kg/day was calculated weekly. All infants were assessed at one year of age with Bayley Mental and Motor Scales and neurological assessment. Univariate and multivariate analyses were(More)
The combination of mexiletine and a class IC antiarrhythmic agent (encainide, propafenone or flecainide) was evaluated by electrophysiologic testing in 14 patients with a history of sustained ventricular tachycardia whose tachycardia remained inducible during therapy with the class IC drug alone. During the control drug-free state, all patients had(More)
A client with dysphasia was treated during the first six months following onset. A cognitive neuropsychological model of language processing was used to establish the levels of impairment in auditory comprehension. Three separate phases of therapy were administered: a semantic therapy; a period of therapy where both semantics and auditory processing were(More)
We describe the evolution of a simplified method for the interpretation of serial EEG in preterm neonates which was tested in a first sample and revised and improved in a second sample of preterm neonates. There were 185 EEGs in the first sample and 206 EEGs in the second sample. The interpretation of the EEGs was related to mental, motor and neurological(More)
Results of renal transplantation in younger children have not been very encouraging in the past. We therefore studied the effect of newer immunosuppressive regimens on the outcome of renal transplantation of 5 children aged 2.9 +/- 1.3 years (range 1.6-5.0), and compared it to 10 children of an older pediatric patient group aged 11.4 +/- 4.4 years (range(More)
AIM To evaluate and compare the in vitro pH, buffer capacity and calcium loss from tooth enamel before and after calcium fortification of a packaged fruit juice. METHODS An approved brand of packaged mixed fruit juice was selected as a test drink on the basis of a pilot questionnaire. The test drink was fortified with 1,000 mg/l (0.1% w/v) of calcium(More)
