Aerobic and nitrate respiration routes of carbohydrate catabolism. J. Bacteriol. 91:245-250. 1966.-The metabolic pathways of glucose catabolism were studied in Pseudomonas stutzeri under aerobic conditions and under(More)
We describe the modern operative technique of magnetic resonance (MR) image-guided stereotactic cingulotomy and discuss the indications, results, and complications of this procedure. A retrospective analysis of psychiatric outcome was performed for 34 patients with intractable major affective disorder and/or obsessive-compulsive disorder who underwent MR(More)
Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is considered a standard neurosurgical treatment for cervical degenerative disc disease, but the methods for determining fusion after ACDF that involves the use of a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) cage are not well defined. The authors examine an image finding called "PEEK double lucency" that may be useful in(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Tuberous sclerosis is associated with a wide variety of central nervous system abnormalities. Cerebrovascular anomalies are extremely rare, but a case of cerebral arterial ectasia and giant fusiform aneurysm formation in a young child is reported. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 5-month-old male patient with tuberous sclerosis presented(More)
A total of 207 bacterial cultures, isolated from environmental samples, was screened for ability to degrade methylmercury. Of these, 30 were found positive for aerobic demethylation. Twenty-two of these were shown to be facultative anaerobes and 21 of these degraded methylmercury anaerobically. All positive species volatilized methylmercury aerobically, and(More)
During the first 50 days of a long-term period of incubation of lake sediments with inorganic mercury (Hg(2+)), low concentrations of methylinercury were observed to build up. Upon continued incubation there was a rapid decrease in amount of methylmercury in the system and a concomitant evolution of volatile inorganic mercury (Hg(0)). Transfer of the mixed(More)
