OBJECTIVE To describe a patient with hyponatremia associated with venlafaxine therapy. CASE SUMMARY A 92-year old white woman who was receiving venlafaxine for management of depression was found to have hyponatremia. A detailed workup confirmed the diagnosis of syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). A temporal relationship(More)
Platelets from dogs with Basset Hound Hereditary Thrombopathy (BHT) initially displayed a thrombasthenia-like aggregation defect but have been shown to have normal amounts of platelet membrane glycoproteins IIb and IIIa (GPIIb-IIIa), and therefore are more accurately described as thrombopathic. The presence of normal quantities of GPIIb-IIIa, however, did(More)
The aggregation of blood platelets is a crucial step in normal hemostasis for all mammals. Circulating platelets are sensitive to a large variety of physiologic and non-physiologic stimulants, some of which are formed or exposed in conjunction with vascular damage or endothelial cell denudation. In addition, drastic pressure changes activate human(More)
Basset Hound Hereditary Thrombopathy (BHT) is an autosomally inherited disorder of platelet function characterized by a thrombasthenia-like defect in aggregation but normal clot retraction. Glycoprotein IIb-IIIa (GP IIb-IIIa) is detectable in BHT platelets but may be functionally defective. In order to further characterize this potential model for human(More)
Because of a thrombasthenia-like platelet aggregation defect, platelets from dogs affected with Basset Hound Hereditary Thrombopathy were compared to normal control dog platelets by three different techniques in order to assess platelet membrane glycoprotein content. Crossed immunoelectrophoresis (CIE), two-dimensional nonreduced-reduced electrophoresis(More)
There are numerous genetic diseases influencing reproduction and periparturient care in dogs including such disorders as anasarca, cleft palate, swimmers, congenital heart disease, and the various conditions that cause excessive bleeding. It is probable that all breeds of dogs are at risk for these or other traits that influence whelping and neonatal care.(More)
Quantitative methodology for the simultaneous high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) resolution and determination of the enantiomers of carvedilol, a new multiple-action antihypertensive agent exhibiting both vasodilator and beta-blocking activity, and its active metabolite, O-desmethylcarvedilol, in human plasma is described. The method involves(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine the acute-phase central hemodynamic and respiratory effects of raw, filtered, filtered and boiled, and meconium-containing amniotic fluid. STUDY DESIGN Pregnant goats (Capra hircus) in the last one third of pregnancy were given freshly collected autologous amniotic fluid in a volume of 2.5 ml/kg of body weight.(More)
