Pulmonary edema is among the least frequently diagnosed criteria for severe pre-eclampsia. A higher incidence of pulmonary edema was noted in older patients, multigravidas, and patients with underlying chronic hypertension that developed prior to delivery. The development of pulmonary edema was also associated with the administration of excess colloid or crystaloid infusion. Two hundreds and thirty millions people occupying Indonesia as tropical and coastal country gave rise the problem of highly maternal mortality rate of 225/100,000 deliveries where pre-eclampsia and eclampsia as most possible cause...

OBJECTIVE: Hypovolemia has occurs frequently in sepsis. Due to pathologically increased permeability of the capillaries, the fluid leaks to the interstitium. An adequate fluid therapy is the corner stone to achieve circulatory stabilization and sufficient tissue perfusion; on the other hand, according to the data from the literature a tissue swelling is associated with a risk of deteriorated function of the tissues. The study aimed to examine the effect of a positive fluid balance on muscular metabolism...

Induction of mild therapeutic hypothermia early after return of spontaneous circulation improves prognosis of cardiac arrest survivors. Rapid cooling of the patients and correct maintainance of the target therapeutic temperature followed by controlled slow rewarming can be achieved by several noninvasive and invasive methods of various efficacy. Elementary and the most frequently used methods are surface cooling via ice-packs and rapid intravenous administration of cold crystaloids. Mattress cooling systems and facilities for endovascular cathether-cooling are more sophisticated, manageable and ensure more precise titration of therapeutic temperature...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The vast majority of prostatic tumors developing in adult males are adenocarcinomas (ACP). Histological diagnosis of prostate cancer relies on the infiltrative growth pattern, presence of macronucleoli, and absence of basal cell layer. In the last few years a special attention has been focused on investigation of cancerous glands lumen content. The aim of the study was to determine the presence of intraluminal (crystaloids, blue-tanged mucinous secretions and distension of glands) and extracellular markers of pathological secretions in ACP, as well as the type of intraluminal and extracellular mucinous secretions...

Profound myocardial hypothermia (below 17 degrees C, and more often around 12 degrees C) is imperative in myocardial protection while the aorta is cross-clamped. Based on our experience in more than 800 open-heart operations, profound myocardial hypothermia can be achieved by very efficient topical cooling despite mild systemic hypothermia (30 to 33 degrees C) and a small, single dose of crystaloid K + cardioplegia. Very efficient topical cooling is achieved by a high flow (1 to 1(1/2) L/min) of continuously cooled fluid (+ 0...

INTRODUCTION: The piggyback technique was first described in adult liver transplantation in 1989, although it has been used in conjunction with venous bypass, with cross-clamping the vena cava, or both. In this study, the inferior vena cava was not occluded at any time during the liver transplant. OBJECTIVE: We compared the use of intraoperative blood products, fluid requirements, and vasoactive drugs among patients managed with bypass, without bypass, and with the piggyback technique...

The treatment with infusion fluids in perioperative period is a basic therapeutic method. Depending on clinical situation, the doctor has various fluids available, both blood-replacing, and blood-derived. The number of crystaloid and colloidal fluids used has been systematically growing in two last decades. Ever more importance, beside the 0.9% NaCl solution and Ringer's solution used, is gaining 7.5% NaCl solution and hydroxyethyl starch solutions. The production of hydroxyethyl starch solutions in Poland has created an alternative to the use of dextran and gelatin solutions...

The clinical significance of the BJ-protein is quite variable: from an asymptomatic course of the light chain proteinuria for a long period of time to specific tissue deposits with serious organ damages and dysfunction. On the basis of literature data a classification of the light chain diseases is proposed: 1. Essential (bening) BJ-proteinuria; 2. Smoldering BJ-myeloma; 3. Light chain disease--BJ myeloma; 4. Light (and heavy) chain deposition disease: LC granular thick deposits mostly k type on electron microscopy, belonging to the constant region of the polypeptide chain and actively reacting with antiserums, not possessing tincturial properties; 5...

BACKGROUND: Wound, mediastinal and intracardiac infections are still very serious complications of open-heart surgery. The incidence of it is still in the range of 0.4%-5%. The aims of our study were to assess the adequacy of regimen using ceftazidim (CTZ), ciprofloxacin (CPF) and clindamycin (CLIN) as prophylactic antibiotics and to verify whether cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) can modify the time of antibiotic serum concentrations. That is why the serum levels of them were measured during open heart procedures...

During 1990-1997 we investigated 201 children with gastrointestinal bleeding. Average age was 3.9 +/- 6 years; 57.2% were males. There were 129 (64.2%) cases of lower and 72 (35.8%) of upper GI bleeding. Complications of upper GI bleeding were more severe than those of the lower: 6 of 8 (75%) patients who deteriorated into hypovolemic shock had upper GI bleeding; 40 of 50 (80%) who required i.v. fluids (crystaloids and/or blood) had also bled from the upper GI tract; but anemia was more frequent (27.7% vs 17%) in lower GI bleeding...

At the University Department of Cardiovascular Surgery in Zagreb, Croatia, we treated 81 patients with primary intracardiac myxoma, in a period from January 1975 to December 1994. There were 55 female and 26 male pts, in age from 1 month to 80 years, mean 46+/-15 years. Clinical manifestations varied from no symptoms and very poor or no clinical signs to various manifestations of chronic or acute congestive heart failure, syncope and arrhythmias with or without systemic findings such as high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, anaemia, leucocytosis, elevated gamma globulin, thrombocytopenia or low grade fever, as well as cerebrovascular accidents due to tumour embolization...

Globule leukocytes (GLs) infiltrating in transitional cell hyperplasia and carcinomas of aged BDF1 mice were pathologically examined. The intracytoplasmic granules of globule leukocytes showed a variety of reactivity to histochemical staining for polysaccharides and were ultrastructurally composed of homogeneous electron dense material, occasionally containing crystaloids or vesicles. The GL infiltrating in tumor tissue is extremely rare.

Duplications of gastrointestinal tract are unusual anomalies, especially in the colon. We report a case with two colonic duplications in a 20 year old woman who complained of recurrent backache associated with left lower quadrant abdominal pain. Neither physical examination nor laboratory test alterations were detected. Roentgenographic examination showed organic scolinosis, no intestinal gas and a mass with central hyperdensity and thickened wall in the descending colon area on the CT scan. Laparotomy was performed in which 22 cm of ascending colon and terminal ileum sited on left side, was excised...

An inherited form of incomplete male pseudohermaphroditism was studied in two post-pubertal and one pre-pubertal sibling. All patients presented a 46XY karyotype infantile female external genitalia, lack of breast development and sexual hair. Persistently elevated serum levels of gonadotrophins with normal pituitary responsiveness to LRH were found. Serum 17-OH progesterone, androstenedione, and testosterone levels were extremely low before and after gonadal stimulation with hCG. Laparotomy revealed absence of Wolffian and Mullerian derivatives...

Operative hysteroscopy may result in profound hyperglycemia and hyponatremia when crystaloids containing glucose are used as a distention medium. Four patients undergoing operative hysteroscopy developed hyperglycemia in proportion to increasing operative time. None of five monitored patients undergoing diagnostic hysteroscopy developed clinically significant hyperglycemia.

Investigation into an outbreak of suspected photosensitivity in Boer goats grazing green oats (Avena sativa) led to the finding of microscopical parenchymal crystaloid material and biliary microliths in the livers of 3 ewes that were killed for necropsy. Neither Tribulus terrestris nor Panicum spp. occurred on the farm. Further investigation resulted in the isolation, from leaf spots on the oat leaves, of the fungus Drechslera campanulata, cultures of which have been shown to be highly toxic to sheep, goats and calves...

A double electronmicroscopical (EM) staining was developed which enabled the ultrastructural localization of cell adhesion molecules on the outer axonal membrane of horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labelled axons in the developing central nervous system (CNS). HRP was used to anterogradely trace outgrowing corticospinal tract (CST) axons in ten-day-old rats. After visualization of HRP using tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) as a chromogen and ammoniumheptamolybdate (AHM) as a stabilizer at pH 6.0 as described previously (Joosten et al...

Twenty-three adult sheep were subjected to hemorrhagic shock using a re-stress model. Eleven of the animals served as controls and were resuscitated with shed blood and crystaloid. The remaining twelve were resuscitated in the same manner with the addition of hypertonic glucose. There was a highly significant increase in survival of the animals given hypertonic glucose.
