rates of the three methods. In all, 71 bacterial isolates were obtained by all three methods of which 42 were Gram positive: coagulase negative staphylococci (25); Staphylococcus aureus (14); and Streptococcus viridans (3); 29 Gram negative: Enterobacteriaceae (18); Pseudomonas spp (9); and Campylobacter spp (2). Retrospective analysis of patient records showed that all isolates were considered to be clinically important.

Primary cardiac tumors causing sudden death: a review of the literature.
The most common intracardiac lesion causing sudden death, endodermal heterotopia of the atrioventricular (AV) node, may not be discovered unless the AV node is microscopically examined. Expand
Nontraumatic prehospital cardiac arrest ages 1 to 39 years.
Clinical and autopsy records were retrospectively reviewed for 105 patients between the ages of 1 and 39 years who came in to the emergency department with nontraumatic cardiac arrest and an etiology of primary cardiac dysrhythmia for arrest were statistically significant factors related to favorable outcome.
