First-trimester growth restriction has been reported in certain aneuploid pregnancies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate this association further by comparing the crown-rump lengths (CRLs) and growth rates from 196 chromosomally abnormal fetuses with a control population of 1929 euploid fetuses. The mean CRLs and growth rates were significantly(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the epidemiology of perineal streptococcal infection and recurrence rates following amoxicillin treatment. STUDY DESIGN We used laboratory logs in a single pediatric practice to identify patients 0-18 years of age with perineal cultures positive for group A Streptococcus (GAS) and reviewed their medical charts. We described(More)
BACKGROUND Five-centimeter needles at the second intercostal space midclavicular line (2MCL) have high failure rates for decompression of tension pneumothorax. This study evaluates 8-cm needles directed at the fourth intercostal space anterior axillary line (4AAL). METHODS Retrospective radiographic analysis of 100 consecutive trauma patients 18 years or(More)
Interleukin-2 (IL-2) therapy leads to clinically relevant responses in 10–16 % of patients with metastatic melanoma (MMEL) or 10–30 % of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC). To date, no biomarkers have been validated to identify patients who are likely to respond. We hypothesized that changes in T cell subset distribution in patients(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Drug induced liver injury (DILI) is challenging because of the lack of biomarkers to predict mortality. Our aim was to describe miRNA changes in sera of subjects with acute idiosyncratic DILI and determine if levels of miRNAs were associated with 6 month mortality. METHODS Clinical data and sera were collected from subjects enrolled in(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cadaveric model. OBJECTIVES To compare the effect of PEEK versus conventional implants on scatter radiation to a simulated tumor bed in the spine SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA.: Given the highly vasculature nature of the spine, it is the most common place for bony metastases. After surgical treatment of a spinal metastasis, adjuvant radiation(More)
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) calibration service for voltage transformers and high-voltage capacitors is described. The service for voltage transformers provides measurements of ratio correction factors and phase angles at primary voltages up to 170 kV and secondary voltages as low as 10 V at 60 Hz. Calibrations at frequencies(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of chronic liver disease is increasing in the United States. Malnutrition is common as liver disease progresses. However, an accepted method to screen these patients for malnutrition is lacking. The 6-question undernutrition screening tool was developed for professionals without nutrition training to identify a decline in the(More)
It is important that brief consideration be given to the background from which the vitamin hypothesis has evolved, not only for the information thus conveyed but also because such an account will clearly illustrate the evolution of one phase of the science of nutrition and will indicate the current tendency of thought in this field. It is, of course,(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to determine the extent of clinical inertia and the associated patient and provider factors in patients with type 2 diabetes on metformin monotherapy (MM) at a large integrated health care system in the United States. METHODS The study cohort included patients with type 2 diabetes aged 18 to 85 years, on MM between January 2009 and(More)
