The myth of the Bernheim syndrome.
We describe a patient in whom the ventricular septum dramatically decreased the size of the right ventricular cavity and yet peak systolic pressures in both the right ventricle and pulmonary trunk were identical. Thus, it is difficult to view the Bernheim syndrome as a real entity. PMID: 24082420 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings)

Consults for conflict: the history of ethics consultation.
Abstract The very existence of ethics consultation reflects both the increasing complexity of modern medicine's ethical questions and our discomfort with the prospect of answering them alone. Two developments in the past century were instrumental in driving the development of ethics consultation-organ replacement therapy and intensive care. With the proliferation of extreme life-prolonging measures came the thorny difficulties in the withdrawal of such services or rationing when resources were poor. Insofar as "someone must," lamented Dr. Karen Teel (a pioneer of ethics consultation), the physician "...

Safety of rapid intravenous of infusion acetaminophen.
The objective of this retrospective chart review study was to show the lack of side effects of rapidly infusing intravenous acetaminophen. Charts of American Society of Anesthesiology (ASA) Class I-III ambulatory surgical patients who received only acetaminophen in the preoperative setting were reviewed for any infusion-related side effects. Using standard binomial proportion analyses and employing SAS/JMP software, all vital signs were analyzed for statistically significant changes between pre- and postinfusion values. One hundred charts were reviewed. Only one patient had pain on infusion, which lasted 10 seconds. No rep...

Development and evaluation of a treadmill-based exercise tolerance test in cardiac rehabilitation.
Abstract Cardiac rehabilitation exercise prescriptions should be based on exercise stress tests; however, limitations in performing stress tests in this setting typically force reliance on subjective measures like the Duke Activity Status Index (DASI). We developed and evaluated a treadmill-based exercise tolerance test (ETT) to provide objective physiologic measures without requiring additional equipment or insurance charges. The ETT is stopped when the patient's Borg scale rating of perceived exertion (RPE) reaches 15 or when any sign/symptom indicates risk of an adverse event. Outcomes of the study included rea...

During hospitalization, he experienced dark stools with an acute drop in hemoglobin. Upper endoscopy and colonoscopy were negative for an identifiable source of bleed. Capsule endoscopy was later done and subsequently an anteroposterior abdominal radiograph confirmed the presence of a retained capsule near the junction of the descending and distal transverse colon, likely contained within a colonic diverticulum. In the interim, the patient developed acute right-sided lumba...

Association between congenitally quadricuspid aortic valve and mitral valve prolapse.
We describe transthoracic echocardiograms in three patients with combined quadricuspid aortic valve and prolapsing mitral valve. None had symptoms of cardiac dysfunction. Two patients had precordial murmurs. A third patient was referred for evaluation of infective endocarditis. The fact that a quadricuspid aortic valve is clearly a congenital anomaly supports the view that mitral valve prolapse is a congenital anomaly that may be more strongly associated with quadricuspid aortic valves than once thought.

Coronary angiographic significance of hyperacute ST-T changes associated with regadenoson stress.
Abstract An abnormal electrocardiographic stress test is typically characterized by ST segment depression. In rare cases, ST segment elevation is observed, which, in the absence of diagnostic Q waves, has anatomic specificity for localized myocardial ischemia. Most instances of ST elevation occurring during cardiac stress testing have been observed with exercise, with only six cases reported with pharmacologic stress. Despite different physiologic mechanisms for inducing myocardial ischemia, development of ST segment elevation during pharmacologic stress, as illustrated by the present case, may also be indicative ...

Signet ring lymphoma: a potential diagnostic mishap.
Abstract Signet ring lymphomas are proliferations of malignant lymphoid cells containing cytoplasmic inclusions or vacuoles that displace the nucleus to the side, imparting a "signet ring" appearance. These signet ring cells, particularly those with cytoplasmic vacuoles, may be mistaken for an adenocarcinoma rather than a lymphoma, if sufficient material is not available to differentiate the case by immunohistochemical stains or flow cytometry. The pathologist must also be aware of this entity so that appropriate studies may be untaken. PMID: 23814396 [PubMed] (Source: Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings)

Saving lives, not sacrificing them: the inevitable clash between medical research and the protection of medical subjects.
Abstract Throughout history, medical practitioners have been admonished to do nothing in treating their patients that might result in harming them. It was not until the 20th century that such teaching was codified in specific legislation. Spurred on by the perversity of Nazi doctors during the Holocaust, world leaders produced the Nuremberg Code in 1947 and the Declaration of Helsinki in 1964. Revelations about other egregious acts in the guise of legitimate medical research led to other measures to prevent such mistreatment. Regulations to ensure physician competency and responsibility have mushroomed in the succ...

Clinical utility of positron emission mammography.
Abstract Several imaging modalities have been introduced over recent years to better screen for and stage breast cancer. Positron emission mammography (PEM) has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and introduced into clinical use as a diagnostic adjunct to mammography and breast ultrasonography. PEM has higher resolution and a more localized field of view than positron emission tomography-computed tomography and can be performed on patients to stage a newly diagnosed malignancy. Review of mammograms together with magnetic resonance or PEM images improves detection of disease. PMID: 23814402 [...

Abstract Although it varies from center to center, the frequency of temporal artery biopsy in patients suspected of having temporal arteritis (TA) is relatively small. Most commonly, patients suspected of having TA are placed on prednisone for varying periods of time, and if symptoms disappear or lessen the diagnosis is made. During a recent 13-year period at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas, 15 patients with TA had the diagnosis of TA confirmed by histological examination of a biopsy of one temporal artery.

The trimodal mortality model (immediate deaths, early deaths, and late deaths) is utilized as the early research describing trimodal distribution is discussed. Also covered is the successive work as trauma systems matured, showing a shift toward a bimodal distribution with a decline in late deaths. Finally, studies of long-term outcomes are highlighted. Deaths occurring within minutes or a few hours of injury are largely unchanged, which underscores the enormity of injuries to the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. Lat...
