An infectious complication involving placement of a penile prosthesis is a disastrous event. A review of more than 300 devices placed between 1979 and 1984 at this center reveals an infectious complication rate of 8.3 per cent. Perioperative risk factors predisposing to infection included reoperation for technical failures, inadequate antibiotic coverage(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that hospital noise-induced subjective stress would interact with other subjective environmental and personal stress in a relationship with poorer patient sleep. METHODS A secondary data analysis was done using correlations and hierarchical multiple regression. Ninety-seven cardiac patients(More)
A technique is described for concomitant study of both arterial and venous penile blood flow during tumescence. Dual-isotope acquisition is started after labeling red cells in vivo with 99mTc. Xenon-133 in saline is then injected into the corpus cavernosum followed with vasoactive drugs to induce an erection. The resulting xenon and technetium time-activity(More)
A new radionuclear method of quantifying arterial and venous blood flow of the penis is described. The technique is based on the simultaneous recording of the change in blood volume and venous outflow in the flaccid and erect states, which is produced pharmacologically. The change in penile blood volume is determined by measuring the change in the(More)
Results are reported of four analyses of the distribution of REM sleep across nights of two subjects who slept for 50 consecutive nights on a regimented, but normal, sleep schedule. We found (a) a strong phase-setting effect of sleep onset on the distribution of REM sleep within nights, (b) no systematic change in the phase of the distribution of REM sleep(More)
BACKGROUND Induced premature menopause and cardio-toxic therapy increase cardiovascular disease risk in female cancer survivors. OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of a 12 month aerobic-resistance fitness center intervention to home based physical activity on cardiovascular function and metabolic risk factors. METHODS Subjects (N = 154) who had completed(More)
