Radiotherapy Of Metastatic Seminoma In The Dog, R Mcdonald, M Walker, Alfred Legendre, R Van Ee, Rebecca Gompf Jul 2012

Radiotherapy Of Metastatic Seminoma In The Dog, R Mcdonald, M Walker, Alfred Legendre, R Van Ee, Rebecca Gompf

Alfred M Legendre DVM, MS, DACVIM

Four dogs with metastatic seminoma were treated with cesium 137 teleradiotherapy. Minimum total tumor dose ranged from 17 to 40 gray (Gy) and was usually given through bilateral opposing sublumbar ports in eight to ten fractions, with three fractions given weekly. The tumor regressed in all four dogs. The first dog (case 1) was free of tumor and died of non-tumor related causes at 57 months. The second dog (case 2) was free of tumor but was euthanatized at 37 months for a limb fracture. The third dog (case 3) was euthanatized for undertermined pulmonary disease 43 months after radiotherapy ...

A Comparison Of Nurses' Attitudes Concerning Therapeutic Ward Atmosphere With Those Of Other Members Of The Multi-Disciplinary Treatment Team, Barbara Brown Dec 1988

A Comparison Of Nurses' Attitudes Concerning Therapeutic Ward Atmosphere With Those Of Other Members Of The Multi-Disciplinary Treatment Team, Barbara Brown

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The atmosphere of a psychiatric hospital ward has been found to have an influence on patient behavior and on treatment outcome. The ward atmosphere is affected by the patients, the multi—disciplinary team and the nurse who is the team member who spends the greatest amount of time on the ward. A multi-disciplinary team which shares similar attitudes concerning ward atmosphere is more likely to create a therapeutic ward atmosphere.
The multi-disciplinary teams of three adult psychiatric units at a midwestem psychiatric hospital were subject of a research study regarding their attitudes concerning therapeutic ward atmosphere. The scores, of team ...

Setting Up An Adolescent Clinic In A Suburban Pediatric Office Group Practice, Patricia K. Stoltz, Kathleen B. Blumer Dec 1988

Setting Up An Adolescent Clinic In A Suburban Pediatric Office Group Practice, Patricia K. Stoltz, Kathleen B. Blumer

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Teenagers in the United States experience significant mortality and morbidity because of high-risk behaviors. Adolescents need routine health supervision aimed at reducing these risks. A Teen Clinic within the Pediatrics Clinic at the Henry Ford Hospital Fairlane Center offers separate facilities, longer appointments, and an emphasis on adolescent issues. This plan is a model for practitioners in various office settings who seek to improve adolescent care.

A Cross-Cultural Analysis Of Psychiatric Symptom Expression Using Langner's Twenty-Two Item Index, Robert Nishimoto Dec 1988

A Cross-Cultural Analysis Of Psychiatric Symptom Expression Using Langner's Twenty-Two Item Index, Robert Nishimoto

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

An analysis of psychiatric symptom response using Langner's twentytwo item index was conducted across three cultural settings. Respondents were Anglo-American, Vietnamese Chinese, and Mexican. Some similarities did exist in response patterns and in those symptom items highly correlated with the total psychiatric screening score. Close examination revealed between-group differences indicating that not all twenty-two items were valid indicators of psychological disorder across cultures. The study highlights issues in the development and use of symptom checklists to measure and assess mental health constructs across cultures.


Introducing The Living With Illness Group: A Specialized Treatment For Patients With Chronic Schizophrenic Conditions, Thomas G. Plante, Stephanie L. Pinder, David Howe Dec 1988

Introducing The Living With Illness Group: A Specialized Treatment For Patients With Chronic Schizophrenic Conditions, Thomas G. Plante, Stephanie L. Pinder, David Howe

Psychology

This paper introduces a specialized psychotherapy/psychoeducational group treatment for patients with chronic psychotic symptoms who receive only partial benefit from psychotropic medications, psychotherapy, and milieu/activities therapy. The goal of the group is to assist patients to accurately identify the feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that are dysfunctional symptoms of their disability and then use the functional aspects of their brain as well as learned coping strategies to compensate for their disability. The group format, philosophy, procedures, and typical topics of discussion are detailed.

Community Mental Health: A View From American History, Mary Ann Jimenez Dec 1988

Community Mental Health: A View From American History, Mary Ann Jimenez

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The limitations of the movement for deinstitutionalization of the chronically mentally disordered have been the subject of a repeated series of investigations and analyses in the last 10 years. These critiques can be summed up in the undeniable observation that the chronically mentally disordered have by and large failed to benefit from deinstitutionalization in the ways that the original advocates and planners of this policy had hoped. The promise of community mental health, at least as articulated by the scores of witnesses before Congressional committees in the early 1960's, has not been realized for this population.


Calcium/Diacylglycerol-Dependent Protein Phosphorylation In The Nervous System, Katherine Ann Albert Dec 1988

Calcium/Diacylglycerol-Dependent Protein Phosphorylation In The Nervous System, Katherine Ann Albert

Yale Medicine Thesis Digital Library

Calcium/diacylglycerol-dependent protein kinase, most often referred to as protein kinase C, is of interest to research groups across many scientific disciplines for two major reasons. First, protein kinase C is of general importance in signal transduction because its second messenger activator, diacylglycerol, is generated by phosphoinositide metabolism in response to a host of biologically active molecules. Second, protein kinase C has been identified as the cellular receptor for tumor-promoting phorbol esters. Protein kinase C is of particular interest to neuroscientists because its highest activity is in the nervous system. The studies described in this dissertation were undertaken to analyze ...


Isolated Cataplexy: A Familial Study, Kristyna M. Hartse, Frank J. Zorick, Jeanne M. Sicklesteel, Thomas Roth Dec 1988

Isolated Cataplexy: A Familial Study, Kristyna M. Hartse, Frank J. Zorick, Jeanne M. Sicklesteel, Thomas Roth

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Four members of a family, a mother, her two sons, and the mother's second cousin, presented with a history of isolated cataplexy without excessive daytime sleepiness or other symptoms typical of narcolepsy. They were polygraphically monitored during one night followed by a day of multiple nap tests. No subject manifested objective daytime sleepiness as measured by short latencies to sleep onset during daytime naps, and no subject exhibited periods of sleep onset rapid eye movement sleep in either the night or nap recordings. The incidence of isolated cataplexy in this family was traced by history through six generations. We ...

Duplication And Deletion 11q23-Q24 Recombinants In Two Offspring Of An Intrachromosomal Insertion ("Shift") Carrier, Miriam G. Forsythe, Hugh Walker, Lester Weiss, Jacquelyn R. Roberson, Maria J. Worsham, V. Ramesh Babu, Daniel L. Van Dyke Dec 1988

Duplication And Deletion 11q23-Q24 Recombinants In Two Offspring Of An Intrachromosomal Insertion ("Shift") Carrier, Miriam G. Forsythe, Hugh Walker, Lester Weiss, Jacquelyn R. Roberson, Maria J. Worsham, V. Ramesh Babu, Daniel L. Van Dyke

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Few examples of intrachromosomal insertions have been described. These usually result from deletion of a segment of chromosome material, with insertion of the deleted material elsewhere on the same chromosome. Previous insertional translocations have been identified through a proband who has either a deletion or a duplication of the inserted segment. We describe a family which has two probands, one with a duplication and one with a deletion of the inserted segment. The unbalanced chromosomes probably resulted from an uneven number of crossovers between the breakpoints in the chromosome 11 of the father, who carries a balanced intrachromosomal insertion of ...


Perinatal Idiopathic Hemochromatosis, Usha B. Raju, Sudhakar Ezhuthachan, Chan K. Ma Dec 1988

Perinatal Idiopathic Hemochromatosis, Usha B. Raju, Sudhakar Ezhuthachan, Chan K. Ma

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

We report the clinicopathologic features of an infant who died of a rare form of perinatal cirrhosis associated with idiopathic hepatic and extrahepatic parenchymal siderosis. The infant appeared normal at birth but soon became severely ill, following a progressively downhill course associated with hypoglycemia, metabolic acidosis, bleeding diathesis, jaundice, and shock. The infant died at 7 days of age. The manifestations were those of hepatic failure but mimicked sepsis and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Cirrhosis, giant cell transformation, and parenchymal iron deposition characteristic of perinatal idiopathic hemochromatosis, a recently emerging clinicopathologic entity of unknown etiology, were present in this infant. These ...


Serum Creatinine Concentrations In Healthy Newborns: Reference Ranges During The First Five Days Of Life, Jennie Andreson, Jaime Alfredo Zegarra, Carlos Alberto Estrada, Francis Dumler Dec 1988

Serum Creatinine Concentrations In Healthy Newborns: Reference Ranges During The First Five Days Of Life, Jennie Andreson, Jaime Alfredo Zegarra, Carlos Alberto Estrada, Francis Dumler

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Serum creatinine concentrations were studied in 52 healthy, full-term infants (29 males and 23 females) during the first five days of life. At birth, mean serum creatinine concentration was 0.76 ± 0.13 mg/dL. At 6 hours of life, values increased to 0.97 ± 0.11 mg/dL (P < 0.001) and remained elevated for 24 hours. Values then returned to baseline so that serum creatinine concentrations were 0.81 ± 0.15 mg/dL at 48 hours and 0.6l ± 0.15 mg/dL at 3 to 5 days of age. At birth, serum creatinine concentrations were higher in males than in females (0.80 ± 0.13 versus 0.71 ± 0.11 mg/dL, respectively; P < 0.009). However, the increases in serum creatinine concentration observed after birth were similar in both sexes. This is the first report of a prospective longitudinal study of serum creatinine concentrations between birth and 3 to 5 days of age in a Hispanic population. In addition, data were analyzed by sex. The results are a useful reference for normal serum creatinine concentrations in early life.


The Pediatrician's Guide To Food Allergy, John A. Anderson Dec 1988

The Pediatrician's Guide To Food Allergy, John A. Anderson

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Food allergy occurs in as many as 5% of infants less than 1 year old. Most food sensitivities disappear by age 3 to 4. Most immunologically mediated food allergy reactions are due to type I IgE mechanisms, with skin, gastrointestinal, and respiratory signs and symptoms the most common manifestations. U sing the double-blind, placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) technique and atopic dermatitis as a model, the most common foods to which children are allergic are cow's milk, eggs, peanuts, wheat, fish, and soy proteins. Anaphylactic sensitivity in older children often involves crustacean seafoods (eg, shrimp), nuts, peanuts, fish, and eggs ...

Pediatric Emergency Care: A Survey Of Michigan Emergency Departments, David J. Treloar, Gregory Preston, Fred Lamb Dec 1988

Pediatric Emergency Care: A Survey Of Michigan Emergency Departments, David J. Treloar, Gregory Preston, Fred Lamb

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Recent studies suggest a lack of preparation in emergency medical systems for pediatric patients. Michigan emergency departments were surveyed to determine their degree of preparedness regarding equipment, space, and pediatric on-call coverage. More than 50% of responding emergency departments did not have a pediatrician on call and lacked a pediatric "crash cart," and 34% had to send their personnel to other areas in the hospital to obtain pediatric equipment during resuscitations. This survey suggests a lack of preparation for pediatric emergencies in Michigan.


Prevalence Of Respiratory Symptoms And Allergic Sensitivity In Multiply Handicapped Children, Dennis R. Ownby, Mary Logan, Ruth Ann Belfi Dec 1988

Prevalence Of Respiratory Symptoms And Allergic Sensitivity In Multiply Handicapped Children, Dennis R. Ownby, Mary Logan, Ruth Ann Belfi

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Among the many challenges of providing care for children with multiple physical and developmental handicaps is the proper management of their respiratory difficulties. This study was designed to evaluate the prevalence of respiratory symptoms in children attending a multidisciplinary clinic for handicapped children. We also used several methods to estimate the prevalence of allergic sensitivity in children with respiratory complaints. Questionnaires concerning respiratory symptoms were completed by the parents of 104 patients. The most frequent complaint reported was snoring in 41% of the children. Of the 39% who had multiple respiratory symptoms, 85% had detectable allergen- specific IgE to cat ...

Adolescent Pregnancy And Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Case Report, Ruby L. Holloway, Richard Smith Dec 1988

Adolescent Pregnancy And Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Case Report, Ruby L. Holloway, Richard Smith

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

More than 1 million teenagers become pregnant every year in the United States. Nearly one-half of the pregnancies are carried to term, while a similar number end in abortion. In Michigan this amounts to approximately 34,000 teenage pregnancies (ages 15 to 19). These adolescent patients have a high incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Of the pregnant teens at Henry Ford Hospital. 60% present with one or more STDs. We discuss the case of a 13-year-old pregnant girl who presented at five weeks estimated gestation with gonorrhea, chlamydia, and appendiceal perforation, resulting in subsequent spontaneous abortion. Further discussion focuses ...
