Twelve of the 32 patients with acute episodes of massive variceal bleeding responded to the administration of IV vasopressin alone. Of the 20 patients who did not respond to(More)
The pitfall of several reviews of noninvasive venous assessment has been the expression of the test data solely in terms of diagnostic accuracy (the number of correct tests in ratio to all tests performed), where results of a test will vary according to disease prevalence.

Thrombolytic therapy is an effective method for reopening an occluded venous segment, but little is known about the long-term results of thrombolysis via direct intravenous route for axillary subclavian vein thrombosis (ASVT). Our experience with 13 cases of primary ASVT illustrates the possible advantages of a protocol consisting of lytic therapy, surgical(More)
Aortofemoral (AF) and axillofemoral bypass grafts (AXFG) are alleged to have similar patency rates, but little is known of their comparative functional results. In 91 limbs clinically selected for AXFG or AF, pulse volume recording amplitude (PVR) and Dopper systolic ankle/brachial artery pressure ratio (DSP A/B) were measured before and 6 months after(More)
