Complete atrioventricular block (CAVB) can be either congenital or acquired in children. Acquired CAVB is occasionally seen in myocarditis patients. To determine the etiology, natural history, and outcome of children with acquired nonsurgical CAVB, we retrospectively reviewed nine children who had suffered CAVB caused by suspected infectious myocarditis.(More)
In order to determine the species responsible for viridans-group streptococcal meningitis in adults in Taiwan, seven cases of culture-proven meningitis due to these organisms were studied. The cases were all identified at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital-Kaohsiung over a period of 3 years, and they accounted for 9% (7/78) of all cases of culture-proven(More)
The effect phosphinothricin (PPT), an inhibitor of glutamine synthetase (GS), on proline accumulation in detached rice leaves was investigated. During 12 h incubation, PPT inhibited GS activity and induced accumulation of NH4 +, and accumulation of proline in the light but not in darkness. Proline accumulation caused by PPT in the light was related to(More)
Ammonium ion accumulation in detached rice leaves treated with phosphinothricin (PPT), an inhibitior of glutamine synthetase (GS), was investigated in the light and darkness. PPT treatment increased NH4 + content and induced toxicity in rice leaves in the light but not in darkness, suggesting the importance of light in PPT-induced NH4 + toxicity in detached(More)
In large, long-term series of laparoscopic pediatric groin hernia repairs, the recurrence rate is commonly higher compared with the open herniotomy. Thus, we refined our laparoscopic technique from a simple hernia sac ligation into combined posterior wall repair for pediatric groin hernias. Between March 2010 and March 2013, 41 consecutive infants and(More)
