OBJECTIVES Patients starting highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) may have a suboptimal CD4 increase despite rapid virological suppression. The frequency and the significance for patient care of this discordant response are uncertain. This study was designed to determine the incidence of a discordant response at two time-points, soon after 6 months(More)
Atracurium besylate, a nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, was administered as an infusion to 8 anesthetized cats in which neuromuscular blockade was assessed, using the train-of-four response. Once 50% depression of the first-twitch (T1) response was achieved, the infusion was held constant for 60 minutes before being discontinued and the(More)
Hypotension, hemorrhage, and acute hepatic congestion were common complications during surgical correction of intrahepatic portosystemic venous anomalies in 13 dogs. Acute splanchnic congestion and hyperthermia were the most serious postoperative complications. Three dogs died within 24 hours; 10 dogs are alive and well after 12 to 46 months.
Atracurium besylate, a nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, was administered by infusion to 10 cats that were anesthetized with isoflurane and oxygen to allow transplantation of a myocutaneous flap. Five of the cats were given cyclosporine (20 mg/kg of body weight, PO q 12 h in divided doses) for 2 days prior to anesthesia, and prednisolone (0.25(More)
