Chylothorax diagnosis: can the clinical chemistry laboratory do more?
Background Chylothorax is a rare anatomical disruption of the thoracic duct associated with a significant degree of morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis usually relies upon lipid analysis and visual… Expand
Bone-specific alkaline phosphatase by immunoassay or electrophoresis: their use in clinical practice
Background Measurement of bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BALP) may be useful in diagnosing and monitoring metabolic bone disease. This study aimed to evaluate the BALP immunoassay and compare it… Expand
CSF xanthochromia: correlation with brain imaging and its usefulness as an out-of-hours test
Background Subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is a spontaneous bleed into the subarachnoid space which is investigated by CT head and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) xanthochromia. The aim of this study was to… Expand
