MATERIALS AND METHODS To minimize delays in time to reperfusion in an urban-suburban North Carolina County, Guilford County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Moses Cone Hospital, Greensboro, NC, have collaborated to use the acquisition of 12-lead electrocardiographs and their paramedic interpretation to initiate the catheterization laboratory team and(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) uses the same hardware as MR imaging and allows us to analyse the biochemistry of tissues in vivo. Published data for gynaecological lesions are limited and are largely based on MRS carried out at the lower magnetic field strength of 1.5 Tesla (T). OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to determine whether staging primary ovarian cancer using 3.0 Tesla (3T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is comparable to surgical staging of the disease. DESIGN A retrospective study consisting of a search of the pathology database to identify women with ovarian pathology from May 2004 to January 2007. SETTING All(More)
On 18 February 1991 a bomb exploded on Victoria station, London. A total of 51 people were injured including one fatally. Of the most seriously wounded, 30 were treated at The Westminster Hospital.

Boerhaave's syndrome can present initially as a case of tension pneumothorax. Mortality rate with delayed treatment is very high, therefore diagnosis should be made rapidly in the emergency department. Multidisciplinary cooperation, immediate radiological confirmation, prompt aggressive resuscitation, and surgical intervention offer the best chance of(More)
Serum IgG responses to the cell envelope proteins (CEPs) from Capnocytophaga sputigena, Capnocytophaga ochracea, and Capnocytophaga gingivalis were examined in periodontally healthy and periodontitis subjects, both with and without type 1 diabetes (n = 60). Serum IgG responses to CEPs were determined by immunoblotting with biotin-goat anti-human IgG and an(More)
Recoveries of Clostridium difficile from stool specimens by using three media, cycloserine-mannitol agar (M-CMA), cycloserine-mannitol-blood agar (M-CMBA), and cycloserine-cefoxitin agar (M-CCA), were compared. Of 321 clinical specimens, 37 yielded C. difficile. Thirty-four were positive on M-CCA, 21 were positive on M-CMA, and 20 were positive on M-CMBA.(More)
