A technique of quantitative venography has been developed in which values are assigned to the deep veins of the calf, knee, thigh, and pelvis, based upon the calculated volume and degree of occlusion of these venous segments. A maximum score of 40 units reflects complete thrombosis of all segments. This technique has been applied to a randomized,(More)
We report 13 cases of ectopic pregnancy following tubal ligation out of 287 ectopic pregnancies seen during a six year period (1984-1989). These findings suggest that tubal sterilization does not invariably confer infertility. Ectopic pregnancy must not be disregarded in women who have undergone tubal ligation, especially if two or more years have elapsed(More)
With meticulous surgical technique, bleeding following vaginal hysterectomy and colporrhaphy is an unusual complication. With exteriorization of the stumps, any such haemorrhage is revealed in the form of vaginal bleeding. Two unusual cases of perivesical and broad ligament hematoma are presented and the possible role of vaginal packing in the development(More)
The cellular distribution of estrogen and progesterone receptors (ER and PR) in the human fallopian tube was investigated by immunohistochemical localization with specific monoclonal antibodies. Nuclear immunostaining was observed. Intense PR immunostaining was seen in tissues obtained at mid cycle and luteal stages of the normal menstrual cycle. On the(More)
A rapid calcofluor white (CFW) stain for detecting Pneumocystis carinii was evaluated prospectively. Eighty-nine bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) specimens, 21 open-lung biopsy (OLB) tissues, 2 induced sputums, 1 expectorated sputum, 2 tracheal secretions, and 1 bronchial secretion from 102 patients were examined for P. carinii cysts by both the CFW stain and a(More)
Ninety six cases of abnormal uterine bleeding were evaluated by both panoramic hysteroscopy and dilatation and curettage. The indications for hysteroscopy included postmenopausal bleeding, infertility with abnormal bleeding, abnormal bleeding and suspected leiomyoma with bleeding. Twenty three patients had abnormal hysteroscopy findings. Hysteroscopy(More)
3 In 1881, Kuchenmeister noted that calcification may involve either the foetus, the membranes or the placenta or a combination of any of the above. Giving the following classification : 1. Lithokelyphos (stone sheath or egg shell), membranes alone get calcified forming a hard shell surrounding the foetus. The foetus may undergo slight change only, or may(More)
