BACKGROUND By the use of conditional probabilities of survival, we studied the yearly survival rates for individual tumor survivors. METHODS Conditional survival rate was estimated in 114 consecutive patients with anaplastic astrocytoma or glioblastoma multiforme. Conditional probabilities of surviving some years given survival to a specific period of(More)
The regulation of the plasma membrane Ca2+ pump by hormones via phosphorylation in intact cells has not been clearly established. We now present evidence that the Ca2+ pump is phosphorylated on both serine and threonine residues in unstimulated and stimulated cultured rat aortic endothelial cells. Among the stimuli tested, the protein kinase C activator(More)
This paper describes the use of acupuncture needles as sphenoidal electrodes in the EEG studies of 648 patients. Among 87 cases of suspected psychomotor epilepsy, as compared with conventional electrodes, use of the improved sphenoidal electrodes could raise the incidence of abnormal findings by 25%. Among 327 cases of generalised epilepsy they raise the(More)
BACKGROUND Massive intracerebral air embolism is a rare pathologic state and never in association with meningitis and lumbar spondylitis. To the best of our knowledge, our presented case is the first of a massive intracerebral air embolism associated with meningitis and lumbar spondylitis of Klebsiella pneumonia. CASE DESCRIPTION A 55-year-old man(More)
To evaluate the incidence and influencing factors related to preoperative and postoperative seizures, a retrospective analysis was performed in 190 patients with astrocytic tumours. Preoperative seizures occurred in 50 (26%) patients and 27 (54%) of the m had recurrent seizures. Late-onset seizures developed after craniotomy in 11 (8%) of 140 patients.(More)
