The Mallampati classification is a commonly used means of preoperatively predicting a difficult endotracheal intubation. As the laryngeal portion of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) must sit over the larynx, we wondered whether the Mallampati classification also predicts difficulty in achieving adequate seating of the LMA. LMA positioning was assessed ...

Defining handedness according to the results of preference questionnaires is operational. Most often, handedness is defined according to the extremes of the handedness range or equal divisions of the entire handedness range. These definitions may exclude ambilateral (ambidextrous) subjects from analysis or may fail to separate out subjects with intermediate ...

We report a case of severe hyponatremia following hysteroscopic myomectomy for uterine fibroids. This new technique, which requires large volumes of irrigation solution (1.5% glycine in this case), is being more widely applied as an alternative to open surgery. Thus, nephrologists may expect to encounter such cases as the female ...

The psychology and psychiatry of interrogation, confession and testimony have recently become the subjects of considerable theoretical analysis, research and professional interest (Gudjonsson, 1992). A case study is reported involving a defendant whose testimony under police interrogation incriminated himself and 13 other defendants in a murder trial. Issues of intellectual ...

Laryngeal liposarcomas are rare, with only 13 previously well-documented cases (to our knowledge). We report an additional case, which documents the use of computed tomography for treatment planning. Laryngeal liposarcomas appear to have a better prognosis than nonlaryngeal liposarcomas; therefore, a critical analysis of reported cases enabled us to identify ...

If the results of LIMIT-2, the two meta-analyses reviewed and the cumulative meta-analysis by Lau et al. are viewed in aggregate, there can be very little doubt regarding the beneficial effects of i.v. magnesium on mortality in suspected acute MI. The results of ISIS-4 should strengthen these odds ratios and ...

We report a case of herpetiform pemphigus induced by thiopronine. Direct immunoelectron microscopy performed on peribullous skin showed IgG deposits predominantly located in the extracellular portion of desmosomes. By immunoblot analysis using bovine tongue extracts as the antigen, the patient's serum recognized a 160-kDa polypeptide which comigrated with desmoglein I. ...

We report 3 cases of bullous immunoglobulinic amyloidosis and review 25 published cases. In 2 of our patients, amyloid deposits were not detected with special staining, but by means of ultrastructural methods. Investigations of the skin lesions permitted the diagnosis of associated plasma cell dyscrasia in 2 patients. Unexplained bullous ...

Apractic agraphia is an impairment in writing in which the actual orthographic production of letters and words is abnormal despite normal sensorimotor function, visual feedback, and word and letter knowledge. We report one case and review the limited clinicoanatomical literature. Analysis of available cases supports the hypothesis that apractic agraphia ...

To objectively assess the linguistic complexity of radiographic reports, the authors retrospectively performed readability analysis on 10,361 reports dictated by seven attending radiologists in 1989. A commercial writing evaluation program was used to determine the Flesch-Kincaid readability index of each report. Four radiographic modalities were studied: general radiography, mammography, ultrasound, ...

The effect of phase quantization errors on the sidelobe level in a phased-array beamformer is considered. The theory of random and periodic phase errors is reviewed. Periodic phase errors occur for an unfocused array with uniform element distance and give rise to discrete sidelobes. The main result of the paper ...
Connelly J - - 1991
A case of pseudofungi in axillary lymph nodes is presented. They resembled septate hyphae and were stained with a periodic acid-Schiff stain. Gomori methenamine silver stain failed to stain them. Because of morphologic similarity to true septate fungi and positive staining with periodic acid-Schiff stain, these structures can be misinterpreted ...
Stevenson D V - - 1991
The author discusses the analysis of a woman with night terror, a condition rarely seen in adults.
