Dying cortical neurons, identified by standard histologic criteria, were observed in the rat sensory/motor cortex after spinal cord transection. The peak incidence of these changes was 10 weeks after injury. At that time, spinal-cord-injured animals showed 10 times as many abnormal cells as were found in matched controls (p less than or equal to 0.05).(More)
Cell death of embryonic neurons which are unable to attain a proper target is well established. A delayed cell death of adult neurons permanently separated from their target tissue has been demonstrated for several cell groups. Cells of the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) are unique in that a single T-shape neurite has a peripheral branch which extends (for root(More)
In the setting of blunt trauma, the rapid assessment of internal injuries is essential to prevent potentially fatal outcomes. Computed tomography is a useful diagnostic tool for both screening and diagnosis. In addition to trauma, acute chest syndromes often warrant emergent computed tomographic angiography, looking for etiologies such as aortic aneurysms(More)
