1. Neu-Laxova syndrome: a case report and review of the literature.
Match Strength: 6.441
Neu-Laxova syndrome (NLS) is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome, characterized by severe intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), microcephaly, abnormal brain development, oedema and ichthyosis. It was first reported in 1971 by Neu et al. (Pediatrics 47: 610-612) and since then no more than 60 cases have been reported. A newborn girl delivered from a 29-year-old healthy mother was admitted to hospital with a thick membrane covering her body and dismorphic appearance. The diagnosis of NLS was made according to characteristic features. The syndrome is known to have a poor prognosis and the baby ... Read More »

3. The diagnostic accuracy of 64-slice computed tomography coronary angiography compared with stress nuclear imaging in emergency department low-risk chest pain patients.
Match Strength: 3.756
STUDY OBJECTIVE: We compared the accuracy of multidetector computed tomography (CT) coronary angiography with stress nuclear imaging for the detection of an acute coronary syndrome or 30-day major adverse cardiac events in low-risk chest pain patients. METHODS: This was a prospective study of the diagnostic accuracy of myocardial perfusion imaging and multidetector CT in low-risk chest pain patients. The target condition was an acute coronary syndrome (confirmed >70% coronary stenosis on coronary artery catheterization) or major adverse cardiac events within 30 days. Patients were low risk ...

4. Mechanism of injury influences quality of life in survivors of acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Match Strength: 3.485
OBJECTIVE: Growing evidence suggests that acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) occurring as a consequence of primary (direct) lung injury differs from that resulting from secondary (indirect) lung injury in terms of radiographic appearance, response to interventions, and outcomes. We examined whether there are differences in quality of life (QOL) in survivors of ARDS attributable to the mechanism of underlying lung injury. DESIGN AND SETTING: Prospective observational cohort study in 54 intensive care units in Canada and the United States. PATIENTS AND PARTICIPANTS: Survivors of ARDS (n ... Read More »

5. Laser epiglottopexy for laryngomalacia: 10 years' experience in the west of Scotland.
Match Strength: 3.181
OBJECTIVES: To determine the results of laser epiglottopexy and to compare them with other surgical techniques for severe laryngomalacia. DESIGN: A retrospective 10-year case note review of laser epiglottopexy for severe laryngomalacia. SETTING: Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow, Scotland. PATIENTS: The study population comprised 52 male and 24 female children who underwent surgery for laryngomalacia between January 1, 1993, and December 31, 2002. In all children except 2, the indication for surgery was stridor associated with poor feeding and failure to thrive. The age at presentation ... Read More »

6. Utility of plasma free metanephrines in diagnosis of factitious pheochromocytoma.
Match Strength: 3.064
OBJECTIVE: To report a case of epinephrine-induced factitious pheochromocytoma in a young woman with a past medical history of Conn's syndrome. METHODS: We present a case report with clinical and laboratory details, review related reports in the literature, and demonstrate the usefulness of plasma free metanephrine levels in facilitating the diagnosis of factitious pheochromocytoma. RESULTS: A 34-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for confirmation and localization of an occult pheochromocytoma. After thorough investigation, we discovered that the patient was surreptitiously injecting ... Read More »

7. A decremental PEEP trial identifies the PEEP level that maintains oxygenation after lung recruitment.
Match Strength: 2.746
OBJECTIVE: To assess the ability of a decremental trial of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) to identify an optimal PEEP level that maintains oxygenation after a lung-recruitment maneuver. DESIGN: Prospective clinical trial. SETTING: Surgical intensive care unit of a university hospital. PATIENTS: Twenty sedated patients with acute lung injury and/or acute respiratory distress syndrome, ventilated for 1.2 +/- 0.4 d. INTERVENTION: Each patient received up to 3 lung-recruitment maneuvers with continuous positive airway pressure of 40 cm H2O sustained for 40 s to increase the ratio of P(aO2 ... Read More »

8. Influence of mode of delivery on neonatal mortality and morbidity in spontaneous preterm breech delivery.
Match Strength: 2.719
OBJECTIVE: To study the association between mode of delivery and neonatal outcome in singleton pregnancy with breech presentation and preterm birth, due to premature labour (PTL) and/or preterm premature rupture of the membranes (pPROM). DESIGN AND METHODS: Information on preterm (gestational week 25-36) singleton births in breech presentation in Sweden during 1990-2002 was obtained from the Swedish Medical Birth Registry and the Swedish Hospital Discharge Registry. The study groups included 1975 caesarean and 699 vaginal deliveries with a diagnosis of PTL or pPROM, without pregnancy ... Read More »

9. Role of poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation during human spermatogenesis.
Match Strength: 2.559
OBJECTIVE: Genomic stability of cells is known to be linked to their poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation capacity. We aimed to demonstrate, for the first time, the patterns of poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation during human spermatogenesis. DESIGN: Retrospective case-control study. SETTING: Teaching hospital. PATIENT(S): Azoospermic men who underwent testicular biopsy for sperm recovery. INTERVENTION(S): Testicular biopsy evaluation by immunohistochemistry for the expression of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) enzyme and of poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR) (an indicator for PARP activity.) MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): The ... Read More »

10. ANN-based mapping of febrile subjects in mass thermogram screening: facts and myths.
Match Strength: 2.415
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is a highly infectious disease caused by a coronavirus. Screening to detect potential SARS-infected subjects with elevated body temperature plays an important role in preventing the spread of SARS. Thermography is being used with ANN/AI to analyse the data collected from the designated SARS hospital in Singapore, and conclusive results are drawn. The current work evaluates the correlations (and classifications) between facial skin temperatures, including eye range and forehead, to aural temperature using a neural network (NN) approach, namely training ...
