BACKGROUND To define the immunologic status of patients undergoing splenic embolization (SE) after traumatic injury. This information may lead to the development of immunization protocols based on scientific data. METHODS Patients with traumatic splenic injury, treated at one level II Trauma Center were eligible for study. SE patients were compared with(More)
The present section presents further observations regarding cavernosometry and cavernosography, emphasizing the value of intracavernosal injection of a papaverine-phentolamine combination. Subsequent pharmacocavernosometry during fluid infusion then enables (1) precise quantitation of cavernosal leak by the pharmacologic maintenance erection flow (PMEF)(More)
OBJECTIVE Concern about respiratory depression may lead to underuse of postoperative narcotic analgesia in neonates. The authors compared continuous infusion of fentanyl with bolus dosing in infants after surgery to determine whether continuous infusion is associated with less respiratory depression. STUDY DESIGN In the first phase of the study, 16(More)
When a single oral dose of 5 or 25 mg/kg of the substituted triazole R151885 [1,1-di(4-fluorophenyl)-2-(1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)-ethanol] was administered at midday on diestrus-2 to rats with regular 4-day estrous cycles, the subsequent ovulation was delayed by 24 or 48 hr, respectively. There was no evidence of toxicity at the doses used. The only morphological(More)
Several studies have identified beneficial effects of butyrate on rumen development and intestinal health in preruminants. These encouraging findings led to further investigations related to butyrate supplementation in the mature ruminant. However, the effects of elevated butyrate concentrations on rumen metabolism have not been investigated, and(More)
Humic acid (MFG) and fat-protected butyric acid (BA) has been shown to modulate energy metabolism and inflammation. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to determine the effects of MFG and BA, alone and in combination, on growth performance and response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced inflammation in young pigs. An experiment was conducted using(More)
