Polymicrobial bacteremia increased from 6% in 1970 to 13% in 1975 in patients with bloodstream infections. This type of serious infection most commonly complicated genitourinary (27%) and gastrointestinal (26%) conditions, frequently followed invasive procedures (68%), was more common in hospitalized patients (73%), and was often associated with(More)
Polymicrobial endocarditis was very uncommon until ten years ago. However, since that time, at least 21 cases were reported, and 10 patients with this mixed infection were seen at our hospital. All, except one of these infections, occurred in patients who had undergone heart surgery or abused intravenous drugs. Although, generally clinically(More)
The epidemiological typing schemes based on serotyping, antibiotic susceptibility pattern, plasmid DNA profile, and protein patterns determined by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) were evaluated for their usefulness in typing clinical isolates ofPseudomonas aeruginosa. The serotypability was lower (45%) than reported in(More)
Improvements in human-machine interaction may help overcome the unstable and uncertain environments that cause problems in everyday living. Here we experimentally evaluated intent feedback (IF), which estimates and displays the human operator's underlying intended trajectory in real-time. IF is a filter that combines a model of the arm with position and(More)
Diagnostic cholangiopancreatography is a useful procedure which is attended by a relatively low incidence of immediate or delayed complications. Perforation of the esophagus or gut, myocardial infarction, hemorrhage, cholangitis, and pancreatitis are the most commonly reported morbid or fatal events. This paper reported a case of retropharyngeal abscess(More)
We analyzed the clinical and laboratory findings of 19 patients with tuberculous meningitis seen between 1966 and 1974 at the Henry Ford Hospital. Eighteen patients were adults at the time of diagnosis. In eight patients, the history suggested that the infection with the tubercle bacillus had occurred in the remote past. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis was(More)
The combination of sulfamethoxazole (SMZ) and trimethoprim (TMP) in a 5: 1 ratio has not previously been evaluated as the sole antimicrobial agent in treatment of bacterial endocarditis. Bacteremia was suppressed in three patients with Streptococcus viridans endocarditis; however, one patient relapsed three days after cessation of therapy. Two patients(More)
