We studied the biochemical discrimination of primary hyperparathyroidism from other causes of hypercalcemia. This potentially serious disorder is readily remedied, and because recent work has suggested that even very mild cases in elderly people derive substantial benefit from surgery, the correct diagnosis is crucial. A discriminant function is derived that ...

Oversensing and recycling due to a pacemaker stimulus after-potentials are recognized complications of non-competitive pacing. Often masquerading as T-wave sensing, after-potential oversensing may result in slowing or acceleration of pacing rate. We report two cases of after-potential oversensing in patients with R-wave inhibited (VVI) programmable pulse generators. In both cases, ...
Strauss J S - - 1981
Case records provide a vast resource of information for clinical research, yet their value has been limited by several methodological problems. One of these has been the absence of standardized approaches for making diagnoses and other clinical judgments from case record data. This report describes the Case Record Rating Scale, ...
Barritt J - - 1981
A series of 48 children with scaphocephaly has been reviewed. 44 had synostosis of the sagittal suture alone, and four had additional involvement of other sutures.
