Na+-Ca2+ exchanger (NCX) protein levels and activity were measured in myocardium from the basal region of the left ventricle of rabbit hearts with significant left ventricular dysfunction (LVD), 8-9 weeks after an apical infarction. NCX protein abundance was higher in the tissue homogenates (121 +/- 11%) and purified membrane fractions (143 +/- 12%) in the(More)
Ninety-two cases of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) were diagnosed in the Grampian Region of Scotland between 1978 and 1984, for a regional incidence of 2.2/1,000 live births. Twenty-seven cases (29.3%) required surgery, 19 acutely and eight for delayed stricture. Acute operative mortality was 10.5%. Disease-related mortality was 3.3%, and overall mortality(More)
Intravenous radionuclide cystography using a single intravenous injection of 99mtechnetium diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid, provides information on individual kidney function, coarse anatomy and vesicorenal reflux. This study investigates the effectiveness of intravenous radionuclide cystography in detecting reflux. In 58 children intravenous(More)
We report a case of hypercalcemia associated with congenital mesoblastic nephroma. Hypercalcemia was corrected preoperatively and a nephrectomy was performed. Postoperatively, the serum calcium returned to normal. The patient has been followed for more than 18 months, during which time he has remained free of disease with normal serum calcium.
OBJECTIVES Existing handheld glucose meters are glucose oxidase (GO)-based. Oxygen side reactions can introduce oxygen dependency, increase potential error, and limit clinical use. Our primary objectives were to: a) introduce a new glucose dehydrogenase (GD)-based electrochemical biosensor for point-of-care testing; b) determine the oxygen-sensitivity of(More)
There has been a resurgence of interest in the potential role of intravenous cholangiography with the advent of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A retrospective review of a historical group of 185 patients undergoing cholecystectomy in whom the results of both intravenous cholangiography (IVC) and routine operative cholangiography (OC) were available was(More)
