Hypophosphatemic encephalopathy in a CAPD patient.
Severe refeeding hypophosphatemia has been reported in infants and adults on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. We report an episode of transient encephalopathy and cardiac suppression in a diabetic, malnourished ...
Lateral lakes of Trolard: Anatomy, quantitation, and surgical landmarks - Laboratory investigation
Object. There is scant and conflicting information in the literature regarding the lateral lacunae, or lateral lakes of Trolard. As these venous structures can be encountered surgically, this study aimed at further elucidating ...
Contributions of the fourth spinal nerve to the brachial plexus without prefixation: Laboratory investigation
Object. The intradural contributions of the C-4 nerve rootlets have not been previously evaluated for their connections to the brachial plexus. The authors undertook a cadaveric study to evaluate the C-4 contributions to ...
Right medial internal jugular vein: A reversed carotid sheath
Venous access is often essential in critical care medicine. The internal jugular vein (IJV) often provides reliable blood flow when subjected to cannulation. However, anatomical variations of the IJV have been reported as ...
Suprascapular nerve as a donor for extracranial facial nerve reanimation procedures: A cadaveric feasibility study: Laboratory investigation
Object. Facial nerve injury with resultant facial muscle paralysis is disfiguring and disabling. To the auhtors' knowledge, neurotization of the facial nerve using a branch of the brachial plexus has not been previously ...
Hindbrain herniation: A review of embryological theories
Herniation of the hindbrain outside of the setting of intracranial hypertension, trauma, and brain tumors is an uncommon phenomenon with estimated incidence of less than 1%. In the late 1890's, Hans Chiari, a German ...
Parvovirus B19 microepidemic in renal transplant recipients with thrombotic microangiopathy and allograft vasculitis.
Parvovirus B-19 (B-19) can lead to various clinical scenarios in renal transplant recipients. Here, we report a B-19 microepidemic that occurred between January and March 2007, involving renal transplant recipients from a ...
Peri-hilar branching patterns and morphologies of the renal artery: a review and anatomical study.
The peri-hilar (extra-parenchymal) branching pattern of the renal artery is important for surgeons to know prior to kidney transplantation. The aim of this study was to identify the variations in peri-hilar branching pattern ...
Do mechanical fluid laws dictate the branching pattern of the renal artery?
Anatomy of the renal artery is an important issue in the renal transplantation era. Multi-detector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) is an accurate modality for the preoperative assessment of live renal donors, and ...
