The administration of long-acting GnRH analogs (GnRH-a) results in gonadotropin and androgen suppression in hyperandrogenic women. Nonetheless, no randomized studies are available comparing GnRH-a with currently used treatments for hirsutism. We have hypothesized that the greater degrees of androgen suppression achieved with GnRH-a therapy could result in a more rapid ...

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative hypothermia initially results from internal redistribution of heat facilitated by anesthesia-induced vasodilation. Preinduction skin-surface warming minimizes postinduction hypothermia in anesthetized volunteers. However, its efficacy might be reduced in surgical situations, because of multiple sources of heat loss. METHODS: Intraoperative core and mean skin temperatures were measured during total ...
