BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although new, large, double-blind, randomized studies are needed to establish the efficiency of intravenous thrombolysis, open trials of sufficient size may also provide novel data concerning specific outcomes after thrombolysis. METHODS An open study of intravenous rtPA in 100 patients with internal carotid artery (ICA) territory(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To describe a group of patients who acquired pulmonary edema at a moderate altitude of 1,400 to 2,400 m. DESIGN Observational, retrospective chart review (1992-2000) of a series of 52 consecutive patients admitted for high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) that occurred at 1,400 to 2,400 m. SETTING Emergency department of a community(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Pilot studies using early thrombolytic therapy in stroke have suggested that recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rTPA) might be effective. While large, double-blind, randomized studies are needed, open trials could generate hypotheses concerning (1) the clinical correlations of outcome, (2) the significance of CT scan data(More)

The laser megajoule (LMJ) and the National Ignition Facility (NIF) plan to demonstrate thermonuclear ignition using inertial confinement fusion (ICF). The neutron yield is one of the most important parameters to characterize ICF experiment performance. For decades, the activation diagnostic was chosen as a reference at ICF facilities and is now planned to(More)
An atomic clock based on x-ray fluorescence yields has been used to estimate the mean characteristic time for fusion followed by fission in reactions 238U + 64Ni at 6.6  MeV/A. Inner shell vacancies are created during the collisions in the electronic structure of the possibly formed Z=120 compound nuclei. The filling of these vacancies accompanied by a(More)
A case of delayed splenic rupture occurring 18 days after external cardiac massage is reported. A 30 year old woman underwent mitral valve replacement. Two cardiac arrests in the immediate postoperative period were successfully treated by external cardiac massage. Recovery was uneventful until the 18th day, when the patient began to suffer from dizziness.(More)
