To develop an experimental standing hand-assisted laparoscopic splenectomy (HALS) technique, report the associated peri-operative complications and document the short-term surgical outcomes.
A cadaver study to estimate the prevalence of dental disorders in horses presented at an abattoir in Queensland, Australia.
To determine the risk factors for canine neural angiostrongylosis in dogs domiciled in Sydney, Australia; geographic location, age, sex, neuter status, weight and breed were assessed.
Retrospective evaluation of the efficacy of isolating bacteria from synovial fluid in dogs with suspected septic arthritis.
To evaluate the efficacy of synovial fluid culture in obtaining the causative organism from dogs with suspected septic arthritis.
To prospectively compare the sensitivity and specificity of 16S rRNA PCR with culture for identifying the causative organism in synovial fluid obtained from dogs with suspected septic arthritis.
This report documents an outbreak of acute renal failure in a flock of 9-month-old White Suffolk-cross ewe lambs. The mortality rate was moderate but the morbidity was high. The lambs had grazed a wheat stubble paddock in which there were several weed species, including Amaranthus spp.
To identify measures that most closely relate to hydration in healthy Brahman-cross neonatal calves that experience milk deprivation.
Use of developmental temperature and gastrointestinal tract location to isolate pure Trichostrongylus vitrinus from mixed, naturally acquired trichostrongylid infections in sheep.
To isolate Trichostrongylus vitrinus from naturally-acquired mixed trichostrongylid infections (predominantly Trichostrongylus spp. and Teladorsagia circumcincta) in sheep using differential larval development temperatures and the anatomical location of adults.
Ethylmalonic acid (EMA) accumulates in tissues and biological fluids of patients affected by short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (SCADD) and ethylmalonic encephalopathy, illnesses characterized by neurological and muscular symptoms. Considering that the mechanisms responsible for the brain and skeletal muscle damage in these diseases are poorly known, in the present work we investigated ...
Kisspeptins, the products of the KISS1 gene have tumor suppressing and antimetastatic properties. We aimed to study KISS1 and KISS1R expression in colorectal cancer. We analyzed KISS1 and KISS1R expression using immunohistochemistry and image analysis in normal and malignant tissue samples from 111 patients with colorectal adenocarcinoma. KISS1 expression was much higher in the normal than in the ...
We have investigated the effect of line shaped topographical defects on the motion of water drops across superhydrophobic wax surfaces using a high speed camera. The defects are introduced onto the superhydrophobic wax surfaces by a scratching procedure. It is demonstrated that the motion of a drop interacting with the defect can be approximated by a damped harmonic oscillator. Whether a drop pass...
The effect of interventions aimed at improving participation outcomes for children with disabilities: a systematic review.
Enhancement of participation has been described as the ultimate outcome for health and educational interventions. The goal of this systematic review was to identify and critically appraise studies that aimed to improve the participation outcomes of children with disabilities.
Massive Air Trapped in the Left Atrial Appendage During Catheter Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation without a Symptomatic Air Embolism.
A 78-year-old woman with paroxysmal symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF) was referred for ablation of AF. Massive air appeared in the left atrial appendage (LAA) when exchanging the double-loop mapping catheter for a single-loop catheter to perform the pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) (Figure 1A). The volume of air in the LAA was approximately 10 ml estimated from the enhanced CT. No neurological se...

Squamous Cell Neoplasm of the Ocular Surface in a Patient With Psoriasis Treated With Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha Inhibitors.
To report a case of conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma in a patient with psoriasis treated with tumor necrosis factor-alpha inhibitors.
