Bacterial Epididymitis In Two Stallions, J Held, S Adair, M Mcgavin, William Adams, R Toal, J Henton Dec 2013

Bacterial Epididymitis In Two Stallions, J Held, S Adair, M Mcgavin, William Adams, R Toal, J Henton

Henry S. Adair, III MS, DVM, DACVS

Two stallions had unilateral bacterial epididymitis attributable to S zooepidemicus infection. Diagnosis was based on bacterial isolation, WBC in the semen, higher than normal blood fibrinogen concentration, and leukocytosis with regenerative left shift. One horse had high seminal pH. Ultrasonography of the involved epididymides revealed changes consistent with the appearance of abnormal accumulation of exudate in the tail of the epididymis. Treatment included unilateral orchiectomy and antibiotic administration. In stallion 1, the infection persisted despite treatment. Treatment result was not available for stallion 2.


Ascorbic Acid As Suspected Cause Of Oxalate Nephrotoxicosis In A Goat, H Adair, William Adams Dec 2013

Ascorbic Acid As Suspected Cause Of Oxalate Nephrotoxicosis In A Goat, H Adair, William Adams

Henry S. Adair, III MS, DVM, DACVS

Oxalate nephrotoxicosis was determined, by renal biopsy, to be the cause of azotemia in a goat. The origin of the oxalate was determined to be a high concentration of ascorbic acid that had been administered parenterally to the goat. Ascorbic acid has been documented as a cause of oxalate nephrotoxicosis in human beings.


Primary Jejunal Osteosarcoma Associated With A Surgical Sponge In A Dog, A Pardo, William Adams, M Mccracken, Alfred Legendre May 2013

Primary Jejunal Osteosarcoma Associated With A Surgical Sponge In A Dog, A Pardo, William Adams, M Mccracken, Alfred Legendre

Alfred M Legendre DVM, MS, DACVIM

Primary jejunal osteosarcoma was diagnosed in association with a surgical sponge in a dog. The tumor was biologically aggressive, resulting in widespread metastasis throughout the abdomen within 2 months of surgical resection. Microscopic examination of the resected osteosarcoma revealed strands of gauze material throughout the tumor mass. It was theorized that the presence of a sponge foreign body may have resulted in malignant transformation of adjacent tissues similar to what has been reported to occur after internal fixation of some long-bone fractures.

Neonatal Exposure To Thymotropic Gross Murine Leukemia Virus Induces Virus-Specific Immunologic Nonresponsiveness, Johnathan M. Korostoff, Marian T. Nakada, Susan J. Faas, Kenneth J. Blank, Glen N. Gaulton Dec 1990

Neonatal Exposure To Thymotropic Gross Murine Leukemia Virus Induces Virus-Specific Immunologic Nonresponsiveness, Johnathan M. Korostoff, Marian T. Nakada, Susan J. Faas, Kenneth J. Blank, Glen N. Gaulton

Departmental Papers (Dental)

Neonatal exposure to Gross murine leukemia virus results in a profound inhibition of the virus-specific T and B cell responses of adult animals. Animals exposed to virus as neonates exhibit a marked depression in virus-specific T cell function as measured by the virtual absence of in vivo delayed type hypersensitivity responses and in vitro proliferative responses to virally infected stimulator cells. Further, serum obtained from neonatally treated mice failed to either immunoprecipitate viral proteins or neutralize virus in an in vitro plaque assay, suggesting the concurrent induction of a state of B cell hyporesponsiveness. The specificity of this effect at ...


"Black Knight Checks White King": The Conflict Between Avery Brundage And The African Nations Over South African Membership In The Ioc, Shayne P. Quick Dec 1990

"Black Knight Checks White King": The Conflict Between Avery Brundage And The African Nations Over South African Membership In The Ioc, Shayne P. Quick

Shayne Quick

Extract: During the 1960s, the conflict within the International Olympic Committee (IOC) over South African participation and representation in Olympic affairs reached such heightened stage that tension existed for the greater part of this decade. The intensity and significance of the debate directly related to the power struggle within the IOC during this time. The IOCs conservative hierarchy, led by the organisation's president Avery Brundage, was the leading force seeking to restrain the larger movement to expel the South African National Olympic Committee (SANOC). While the Brundage led group was initially able to ward off this challenge the newly ...

The Effect Of Locus Of Control On The Procrastination Behavior Of College Students, Eileen Debra Rudnick Dec 1990

The Effect Of Locus Of Control On The Procrastination Behavior Of College Students, Eileen Debra Rudnick

Electronic Thesis Collection

The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between locus of control and the Procrastination behavior of individuals in an academic setting. Investigated in this study was the relationship between the two aspects of procrastination, the delaying of a task and the psychological distress that results from that behavior, and locus of controls in terms of an internal or external generalized belief.

The Adult Nowicki - Duke Locus of Control scale and the Procrastination Assessment scale - Students were given to 267 undergraduate students between the ages of 17 and 48 at Pittsburg State University. The data were analyzed ...


A Redefinition Of The Problem Of Homelessness Among Persons With A Chronic Mental Illness, Donald M. Linhorst Dec 1990

A Redefinition Of The Problem Of Homelessness Among Persons With A Chronic Mental Illness, Donald M. Linhorst

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

Two definitions of the problem of homelessness among persons with a chronic mental illness are examined, along with their implied solutions and ramifications for policy. Homelessness among this group is first viewed as the result of deinstitutionalization, and secondly, as the outcome of a critical shortage of low-income housing. Solutions stemming from the deinstitutionalization definition of homelessness, reinstitutionalization or improvement in the mental health system, are seen as inadequate to deal with the problem of homelessness among the mentally ill. Instead, state departments of mental health are called upon to provide a leadership role in the development of affordable housing.

Psychometric Profiles Of Patient Populations With Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, Edward J. Stepanski, Jon J. Markey, Frank J. Zorick, Thomas Roth Dec 1990

Psychometric Profiles Of Patient Populations With Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, Edward J. Stepanski, Jon J. Markey, Frank J. Zorick, Thomas Roth

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Patients with narcolepsy have more psychiatric symptoms than normal controls as measured by psychometric tests. However, it is unclear whether these findings are specific to narcolepsy, as some studies have suggested, or related to excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) or to chronic illness. We compared a group of 56 narcoleptics to age- and sex-matched controls with EDS. A group of 48 individuals with normal sleep architecture was also used as an additional control group. Both the narcoleptic group and the EDS-control group had significantly greater scores on Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory scales hut were not different from each other. Our data ...


Nutritional Implications Of Liver Transplantation, Jeanette M. Hasse Dec 1990

Nutritional Implications Of Liver Transplantation, Jeanette M. Hasse

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Malnutrition is a common problem of patients undergoing liver transplantation. To treat malnutrition, it must first be identified through a nutritional assessment. Because many objective nutritional assessment parameters have limitations in end-stage liver disease, subjective nutritional indicators may be used as an alternative. Nutritional needs following transplantation are categorized as short and long term. The short-term nutritional goal, anabolism, can be complicated by the nutritional status of the patient, surgical procedures, and necessary medications. The increased nutrient needs during the early posttransplant phase require particular nutritional support. Nutrition-related problems following transplantation may include obesity, hyperlipidemia. hypertension, diabetes mellitus. hyperkalemia, edema ...

The Ketterer Stress Symptom Frequency Checklist: Anger And The Severity Of Coronary Artery Disease, Mark W. Ketterer Dec 1990

The Ketterer Stress Symptom Frequency Checklist: Anger And The Severity Of Coronary Artery Disease, Mark W. Ketterer

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Recent research suggests that the most potent feature of the Type A behavior pattern for prospectively predicting cardiac disease is aggravation, irritation, anger, and impatience (AIAI). The present study examines psychometric properties of a new AIAI measure and its relationship to the severity of coronary artery disease (CAD). Subjects included 61 males undergoing coronary angiography. Comparisons were made of mean psychometric scores across groupings, defined by number of vessels occluded. These comparisons showed that the normal or subclinically occluded coronary angiographic group had high levels of depression and anxiety. Higher levels of AIAI were observed in patients with multivessel CAD ...

Neuropsychological Sequelae Of Brain Tumors, John L. Fisk, Jerel E. Del Dotto Dec 1990

Neuropsychological Sequelae Of Brain Tumors, John L. Fisk, Jerel E. Del Dotto

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Investigation of the neuropsychological sequelae of brain tumors is extremely complex largely because the neurobehavioral consequences of brain tumors depend upon complex interactions among disease and treatment variables as well as patient characteristics. To illustrate some of these complexities, we present case studies of two patients in whom the behavioral outcome was not easily predictable on the basis of our current understanding of brain-behavior relationships in tumor patients. The case studies do illustrate how neuropsychological evaluation aids in identifying cognitive deficits which have implications for subsequent quality of life. Recommendations for future experiments and statistical analyses of neurobehavioral data of ...

Response To Cpap And Uppp In Apnea, Frank J. Zorick, Timothy Roehrs, William Conway, George Potts, Thomas Roth

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Ninety-two consecutive patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) were studied before and six weeks after treatment with either nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) (n = 46 per group). Assignment of patients to treatment was based on clinical considerations and patient preference. Patients were assessed by nocturnal polysomnography and performance on the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT) the following day. Before treatment, the CPAP and UPPP groups did not differ in sleep-related respiratory disturbance, oxygenation during sleep, fragmentation of sleep, or the level of excessive daytime sleepiness indicated by the MSLT. Both treatments produced significant improvement on ...

Do Tournaments Have Incentive Effects?, Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Michael L. Bognanno Dec 1990

Do Tournaments Have Incentive Effects?, Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Michael L. Bognanno

Articles and Chapters

Much attention has been devoted to studying models of tournaments or situations in which an individual's payment depends only on his or her output or rank relative to that of other competitors. Academic interest derives from the fact that under certain sets of assumptions, tournaments have desirable normative properties because of the incentive structures they provide. Our paper uses nonexperimental data to test whether tournaments actually elicit effort responses. We focus on professional golf tournaments because information on the incentive structure (prize distribution) and measures of individual output (players' scores) are both available. We find strong support for the ...


Effects Of Age, Neuropsychological Impairment, And Medication On Regional Cerebral Blood Flow In Schizophrenia And Major Affective Disorder, Perry C. Goldstein, Gregory G. Brown, Andrew Marcus, James R. Ewing Dec 1990

Effects Of Age, Neuropsychological Impairment, And Medication On Regional Cerebral Blood Flow In Schizophrenia And Major Affective Disorder, Perry C. Goldstein, Gregory G. Brown, Andrew Marcus, James R. Ewing

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Reports of abnormalities of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in patients with schizophrenia and major affective disorder are contradictory. To gain a better understanding of the possible sources of these contradictions, the rCBF and neuropsychological functioning of 15 schizophrenics, 15 patients with major affective disorder, and 15 age-matched controls were studied. No group differences in overall rCBF, percent frontal devialion in flow, or rCBF asymmetries were observed. Both overall rCBF and percent frontal deviation of rCBF were reduced with greater age and with increasing neuropsychological impairment. Dosage of neuroleptic medication was associated with reduced whole brain flow, not with percent ...

Allogeneic Whole Pancreas Transplantation In Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, José Goldman, Heung K. Oh, Mark G. Webb, Martin Mozes, Nancy Turza, Warren L. Kupin, K. K. Venkat, Ramón Del Busto

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

A clinical whole organ pancreas transplantation program for patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus complicated by end-stage renal disease was initiated at Henry Ford Hospital in 1987. Five patients have received pancreatic allografts after a previous kidney transplant (phase 1), and six patients had simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplants (phase 2). Ten patients had functioning pancreatic grafts after surgery, and all of them had normal carbohydrate tolerance with appropriate plasma free insulin responses to an oral glucose tolerance test three months after transplantation. As long as 28 months postsurgery six patients remained free of insulin requirements; however, one patient rejected the pancreatic allograft ...


The Physiologic Basis For Nutritional Support In Hepatic Failure, John J. Fath Dec 1990

The Physiologic Basis For Nutritional Support In Hepatic Failure, John J. Fath

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Hepatic failure is often perceived as a unidimensional progression from near normal clinical function (Child's class A) to overt clinical failure (Child's class C). As this view fails to distinguish between patients who are capable of using exogenous protein and those who cannot, it hinders the nutritional support team in determining protein supplementation. This report addresses the physiologic basis for variable findings in hepatic failure and proposes a simple definition of hepatic faliure based upon ability to utilize amino acids.

Passive Inhalation Of Cocaine By Infants, Sabrina M. Heidemann, Mark G. Goetting Dec 1990

Passive Inhalation Of Cocaine By Infants, Sabrina M. Heidemann, Mark G. Goetting

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Cocaine abuse has increased greatly in recent years, creating important medical, legal, and social problems. Urine drug testing is used to diagnose cocaine ingestion. The presence of the cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine (BZ) is commonly believed to be proof of recent cocaine intoxication. However, oral ingestion of even a minute quantity of cocaine can result in a positive test result. BZ was detected in the urine of four nonbreast-fed infants aged 6 weeks to 14 months who were admitted with diagnoses unrelated to cocaine poisoning. These infants were exposed to cocaine by passive inhalation of vapors generated by adult caretakers smoking ...


Lipohyperplasia Of Ileocecal Valve, Causing Recurrent Intussusception, Lacey Walke, Adrian J. Christie Dec 1990

Lipohyperplasia Of Ileocecal Valve, Causing Recurrent Intussusception, Lacey Walke, Adrian J. Christie

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Lipohyperplasia of the ileocecal valve is a fairly common entity that occasionally behaves as an intestinal tumor, causing obstruction, sometimes with intussusception, or bleeding, which may be acute or chronic. Most often occurring in middle-aged or elderly women, it may be mistaken clinically and radiologically for carcinoma or other neoplasms. Its differentiation is best made by endoscopy, confirmed if possible by biopsy. Differentiation is important, as the treatment is a limited ileal and cecal resection, instead of a blind hemicolectomy. A recent study suggests possible associations with other medical conditions. We describe the clinical and pathological findings of this entity ...
