The long-term effect of percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) on blood pressure and renal function was assessed in 100 consecutive patients with atherosclerotic renovascular hypertension. Technical success rates (complete plus partial) of a first PTRA averaged 76.2%, 74.1%, and 67.7% for the unilateral (n = 42), bilateral (n = 27), and solitary(More)
UNLABELLED After a single IV injection of the water-soluble propofol prodrug propofol phosphate (PP) in mice, rats, rabbits, and pigs, propofol was produced rapidly (1-15 min), inducing dose-dependent sedative effects. In mice, the hypnotic dose (HD(50)), lethal dose (LD(50)), and safety index (defined as a ratio: LD(50)/HD(50)) were 165.4 mg/kg, 600.6(More)
The clinical and angiographic features of cervical and ocular bruits were correlated in 50 consecutive patients with severe extracranial internal carotid artery occlusive disease. Cervical bruits, generally localized to the carotid bifurcation, were highly associated (P = 0.004) with "tight" (residual lumen less than or equal to 2 mm) internal carotid(More)
Nineteen stenotic arteries in 16 patients with severe renovascular hypertension of nonatherosclerotic nature (fibromuscular dysplasia in 13, neurofibromatosis in 3) were treated with percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty. The procedure was technically successful in 12 of 14 (86%) stenoses in the fibromuscular dysplasia subgroup but in only one of five(More)
Percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (P.T.R.A.) was performed in a 43-year-old woman with medial fibroplasia of the right main renal artery that was causing high-grade stenoses and severe hypertension. The procedure led to a virtually complete dilatation of the stenosing lesions and a prompt and lasting fall in blood-pressure to normal.(More)
Chylous is an extremely unusual cause of leukorrhea. The diagnosis is established by verification of the chylous nature of the discharge, documentation of its uterine origin, and lymphangiographic demonstration of dilated pelvic lymphatics with uterine reflux. Surgical excision of the incompetent lymphatic channels is the treatment of choice.
Percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) was performed in a group of 12 patients with marked renal functional impairment, severe hypertension, and critical renovascular stenoses in a solitary functioning kidney (ten patients) or bilaterally (two patients). The procedure led to least partial dilation in 11 of the 13 stenoses acted on and(More)
