PURPOSE To evaluate the success of lysis and clinical outcomes in patients treated with ultrasound (US)-accelerated thrombolysis for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-seven patients with 53 cases of DVT were treated with US-accelerated thrombolysis at eight centers in the United States. Sixty percent of the occlusions were in the(More)
Perioperative cerebrovascular accidents after general surgical procedures are rare, but devastating and often fatal. The purpose of this study was to identify the perioperative, intraoperative, and postoperative factors associated with perioperative strokes after general surgical procedures. Over a five-year period, 19 patients of 24,641 general and(More)
We describe a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus who developed osteonecrosis. The case is unusual because the osteonecrosis occurred in an unusual location, in the distal tibia. The patient had earlier developed recurrent pyarthrosis, and biopsy and culture were required to exclude osteomyelitis.
Elastase release by neutrophils has been implicated in the etiology of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The present study investigated whether neutrophils in patients with AAA actively synthesize the neutrophil elastase enzyme and the effect of elastin-derived peptides on neutrophil elastase release. Total neutrophil elastase in patients with AAA was(More)
Coagulopathy and massive bleeding plays a major role in the mortality of thoraco-abdominal aneurysm repair. Increasing supraceliac aortic cross-clamp time from 0 to 90 minutes increases the degree of disseminated intravascular coagulation, which occurs as a result of occlusion and reperfusion of the superior mesenteric artery. The purpose of this study was(More)
This report describes the results of computerized ultrasonic C-scanning of solid steel bridge pins using a raytrace model. The raytrace model was developed to facilitate interpretation of data obtained from an ultrasonic C-scanning system for the Virginia Transportation Research Council (VTRC). The report discusses the reasons behind the development of the(More)
A Java framework is described for creating an interface with legacy code through a Web browser. This interface was created in the development of modules for teaching courses on the Mechanical Behavior of Materials. Modules incorporate the results of state of the art simulation techniques. When appropriate, students studied structure property relationships(More)
A Java framework is described for creating an interface with legacy code on a Web browser. This interface was created in the development of modules for teaching a senior level (I) and first-year graduate level course (II) on the Mechanical Behavior of Materials. Both courses incorporate the results of state-of-the-art simulation techniques. The modules make(More)
