A 55-year-old male was admitted for evaluation of severe dyspnoea and hypoxaemia. Physical examination upon admission showed elevated jugular venous pressure and an accentuated second heart sound. Chest radiograph showed cardiomegaly with increased bibasilar markings. Arterial blood gas analysis while breathing room air showed marked hypoxaemia. High resolution computed tomography angiography of the chest showed modestly enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes with discrete diffuse ground-glass attenuation especially at the lower lung zones...

OBJECTIVE: The metabolic outcome of islet cell transplants in type 1 diabetic patients is variable. This retrospective analysis examines whether differences in recipient characteristics at the time of transplantation are correlated with inadequate graft function. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Thirty nonuremic C-peptide-negative type 1 diabetic patients had received an intraportal islet cell graft of comparable size under an ATG-tacrolimus-mycophenolate mofetil regimen...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the extent to which prostate HistoScanning (PHS), a new ultrasound-based technology that uses computer-aided analysis to quantify tissue disorganization induced by malignant processes, can identify and characterize foci of prostate cancer compared with step-sectioned radical prostatectomy (RP) specimens. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between September 2004 and February 2006, 29 men had PHS before their scheduled RP. A three-dimensional ultrasound raw-data file was acquired, and PHS analysed regions of interest (ROI) corresponding to tissue volumes of approximately 0...

Recently the presence of somatostatin receptors on human renal cell carcinomas has been demonstrated by autoradiographic techniques on surgically removed kidneys. In a prospective study we evaluated, by means of 111In-labelled octreotide scintigraphy, the in vivo tumour imaging in a group of patients with biopsy proven renal cell carcinomas at different tumour stages. Seven patients were studied. In three of them (43%) pathological tracer accumulation was demonstrated. In these patients 20 out of 23 known tumour localizations were clearly visualized...

The late luteal phase endometrial biopsy is an important part of the evaluation of patients with recurrent spontaneous abortion or infertility. The procedure can be painful and, if an adequate amount of tissue is not obtained, may have to be repeated. In this report, the results of endometrial biopsies performed in the late luteal phase with either the Novak curette or the PIPELLE Endometrial Suction Curette were analyzed retrospectively. The two techniques did not differ in the number of biopsy specimens found to have inadequate tissue for diagnosis; however, patients who underwent biopsy with the PIPELLE recalled significantly less pain associated with the procedure...

Twenty-four-hour continuous esophageal pH monitoring has become the preferred test to quantify acid gastroesophageal reflux. Agreement has been achieved that acid gastric content reflux into the esophagus constitutes a major cause of reflux esophagitis; we therefore calculated the "area under pH 4" (A) in 560 consecutive pH monitorings in infants 1-12 months old and related this parameter (A) to the reflux index (RI): RI less than 10%: A 185 +/- 295 (mean +/- 1 SD); RI 10-19%: A 1,046 +/- 1,206; RI 20-29%: A 1,967 +/- 2,038; RI 30-39%: A 3,307 +/- 2,955; RI greater than 40%: A 7,977 +/- 7,227...
