OBJECTIVE To compare the elution characteristics of ceftiofur and liquid and powdered gentamicin and amikacin from polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and from hydroxyapatite cement (HAC). METHODS PMMA and HAC beads in triplicate were impregnated with various amounts and formulations of antibiotics. Beads were immersed in 5 mL of phosphate buffered saline that(More)
To determine whether postmenopausal individuals being treated with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) have an increased risk for lesions that predispose to breast cancer, 156 women with benign breast lesions were retrospectively studied. Their ages ranged from 43 to 88. Each patient underwent a breast biopsy from 1991 to 1995. It was determined from chart(More)
We sought to identify a simple bedside method to predict successful extubation outcomes that might be used during rounds. We hypothesized that a direct 2-minute unassisted breathing evaluation (DTUBE) could replace a longer spontaneous breathing trial (SBT). Data were prospectively collected on all patients endotracheally intubated for >48 hours nearing(More)
Purpose: To characterize the relationship between tumor uptake of 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab as measured by PET/CT and standard, immunohistochemistry (IHC)-based, histopathologic classification of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status in women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Experimental Design: Women with biopsy-confirmed MBC and not given(More)
BACKGROUND Although it is assumed that obese patients are naturally protected against anterior abdominal stab wounds, the relationship has never been formally studied. We sought to examine the impact of body mass index (BMI) on severity of sustained injury, need for operation, and patient outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a review of all(More)
