gamma-radiolysis of aqueous solution of proline.gamma-radiolysis of 0.05 m neutral proline solution was investigated. as the main reaction of proline radiolysis in oxygenated solutions, the hydroxylation reactions leading to hydroxyproline formation and the reactions leading to the total destruction of the pyrrolidine ring were shown. in oxygen-free solutions the yield of these reactions decreased; in this medium combination reactions giving rise to higher molecular weight combination products (up to approx. 1500) belong to the most important ...2002126589
psychodynamics of the young handicapped person.psychodynamics of personality and ego development are related to motor development. the body image concept, important for normal psychologic performance is often impaired by somatic or cerebral defects. adolescents are particularly depressed by loss of self-esteem and thwarting of future career goals. sexuality is an important consideration for the handicapped.2002127532

neurocristopathy syndrome: review of four cases.aberrant embryologic development of the neural crest may clinically result in one of several patterns of malformation. four examples of the neurocristopathy syndrome are described that collectively feature a very broad range of expression in these infants. because of the many expressions, the syndrome may not be recognized. we believe that greater familiarity with the disorder will aid in the discovery of unsuspected anomalies and provide clues about predisposing etiologies.20082359735

implantation of the duromedics bileaflet cardiac valve prosthesis in 400 patients.from september, 1983, to april, 1986, 451 duromedics bileaflet cardiac valve prostheses were implanted in 400 patients at our institution in vienna. aortic valve replacement was done in 190 patients, 157 underwent mitral valve replacement (1 patient also underwent tricuspid valve replacement), 52 underwent double valve replacement, and 1 patient underwent isolated reoperation for tricuspid valve replacement. concomitant procedures were performed in 86 patients (21.5%). sixty-one patients (15.2%) ...20133632116
effect of membrane additives on vesicle fusion.a large variety of alkyl derivatives were found to either slow or block the low-temperature induced fusion of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine small unilamellar vesicles (dppc suv) when incorporated into the suv bilayer at five mol%. only corn oil was fusogenic.20062758525
quality of life in end-stage renal disease: a reexamination.a self-administered questionnaire assessing both objective and subjective quality of life was completed by 489 end-stage renal disease (esrd) patients in a representative sample of an entire network. patients differed in both objective and subjective quality of life when examined as a function of treatment modality. the quality of life is similar for successful transplant and home hemodialysis patients; these patients appear to fare better than other treatment groups on both objective and subjec ...20082493190
retroperitoneal approach to aortic surgery.the retroperitoneal approach has been recently advocated as an alternate approach to abdominal aortic surgery rather than the traditional transperitoneal approach. a comparative analysis of these two approaches was undertaken to clarify the differences. from june 1984 through june 1986, 172 patients underwent elective infrarenal abdominal aortic surgery on the vascular surgery service at eastern virginia medical school. one hundred nineteen were operated through a transperitoneal approach, and 5 ...20092708431

biological and clinical features of recurrent brief depression: a comparison with major depressed and healthy subjects.recurrent brief depression (rbd) has recently been proposed as a new subtype of affective disorder characterized by episodes of major depression which last less than two weeks. the aim of this study was to further evaluate the validity of this putative subtype by means of clinical and biological data. dst, tsh response to trh and sleep eeg variables were compared in 25 rbd patients sex- and age-matched to 25 major depressed (md) and 25 healthy subjects. family history, age at onset, and psychiat ...20061479136
temperature changes caused by mr imaging of the brain with a head coil.tissue heating caused by exposure to rf radiation is a primary safety concern in mr imaging. therefore, to determine temperature changes caused by high field strength mr imaging of the brain with a head coil, we measured body and skin temperatures in 35 patients immediately before and after clinical mr imaging. mr imaging was performed with a 1.5 t mr system using a 28-cm, open-bore rf transmit/receive head coil specifically designed for examinations of the brain. the average body temperature wa ...20113128077
