Enzyme replacement therapy has been successful in alleviating morbidity and improving endurance in Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type I, II, and VI, however little attention has been paid to the effects on bone mineralization. Brief case reports in MPS type III and IV suggest that bone mineral density (BMD) is diminished, but did not account for patient size.(More)
The mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in children and adolescents. As the MPS diseases are progressive in nature, it is essential that CTS in these children is readily diagnosed and treated, before damage to the median nerve becomes irreversible. Currently, no standards for diagnosing and treating CTS associated(More)
OBJECTIVES Using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), the authors compared outcomes by observed wire position (intraplaque vs. subintimal) achieved during successful chronic total occlusion (CTO) lesion treatment. BACKGROUND Recent successes in CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have used both intraluminal and subintimal wire tracking to improve(More)
As the scale and complexity of modern computer networks increases, administrators and operators of such networks need tools to accurately infer dependencies between different network services and applications. Such tools can aid in (1) detecting misconfigurations, (2) effectively scheduling major software and hardware maintenance operations with minimal(More)
OBJECTIVE Although the use of oral cholecystographic agents (OCAs) had declined due to limited availability, there is literature to suggest it is an effective medication for thyrotoxicosis in appropriate clinical situations. METHODS The authors performed a PubMed search and systematically reviewed all the English written case reports, original studies and(More)
OBJECTIVES We present the case of a 66-year-old woman who developed hypoglycemia following the prolonged infiltration of a high dose continuous peripheral IV insulin infusion. STUDY SELECTION Case report. DATA SOURCES AND EXTRACTION PubMed was searched for relevant literature on exogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. DATA SYNTHESIS The patient was(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW This study aims to describe bone marrow fat changes in diabetes and to discuss the potential role of marrow fat in skeletal fragility. RECENT FINDINGS Advances in non-invasive imaging have facilitated marrow fat research in humans. In contrast to animal studies which clearly demonstrate higher levels of marrow fat in diabetes, human(More)
