We report on eight divers using a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) who developed acute pulmonary edema manifested by dyspnea, hypoxemia, and characteristic chest radiographic findings. All cases occurred in cold water. All scuba divers were(More)

During September and October of 1977, a total of 342,407 apparently healthy blood donors were screen for HBsAG by reversed PHA, and 6,342 (1.9%) asymptomatic carriers of HBV were identified. Prevalence of HBeAG and anti-HBe among HBV carriers was tested by our immunodiffusion method after serum samples had been concentrated threefold. The results were(More)
We previously described two unrelated patients showing characteristic facial and skeletal features, overlapping with the kyphoscoliosis type Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) but without lysyl hydroxylase deficiency [Kosho et al. (2005) Am J Med Genet Part A 138A:282-287]. After observations of them over time and encounter with four additional unrelated(More)

BACKGROUND An unstable slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) is associated with a high rate of avascular necrosis (AVN). The etiology of AVN seems to be multifactorial, although it is not thoroughly known. The aims of our study were to determine the rate of AVN after an unstable SCFE and to investigate the risk factors for AVN, specifically evaluating(More)

Children with GBS sometimes consult the orthopaedists because of limb pain and gait disturbance. The orthopaedists, however, are unfamiliar with GBS, since it has rarely been delineated in detail in the orthopaedic(More)
