Relationship between Human Sperm Morphology and Acrosomal Function
Purpose: In this study, we investigated the relationship between functionality of the acrosome and sperm morphology. Methods: Acrosome reaction (AR) was separately determined in live and dead sperm and in those with normal, ...
Traumatic dislocation of the atlanto-occipital joint
We present four patients who had sustained a traumatic dislocation of the atlanto-occipital joint. The diagnosis was initially missed in two patients. One patient, who was neurologically intact, was treated non-operatively. ...
Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome in children surviving infancy: Clinical and radiological features
We report three children from two inbred Arab families with Stüve-Wiedemann syndrome who have survived the first year of life (ages are 6 years, 2.8 years and 2 years). All exhibited a characteristic phenotype resembling ...
Comparative efficacy of triptorelin pamoate and leuprolide acetate in men with advanced prostate cancer
OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of monthly administrations of the luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonists triptorelin pamoate and leuprolide acetate to induce and maintain castrate levels of serum testosterone ...
Problems with prostate specific antigen screening for prostate cancer in the primary healthcare setting in South Africa
OBJECTIVES: To assess the feasibility of detecting early-stage prostate cancer in the primary healthcare setting, and to investigate whether there is a higher incidence of prostate cancer in Black African men. PATIENTS AND ...

Accuracy of pleural puncture sites: A prospective comparison of clinical examination with ultrasound
Study objective: To assess the value of chest ultrasonography vs clinical examination for planning of diagnostic pleurocentesis (DPC). Design: Prospective comparative study. Setting: Pulmonary unit of a tertiary teaching ...
Diffusion MRI findings in Wilson's disease
Six patients having Wilson's disease were studied with diffusion MRI in order to characterize cerebral lesions. Diffusion MRI was obtained using the spin-echo, echo-planar sequence with a gradient strength of 30mT/m. The ...
Intragastric pH during Continuous Infusion with Pantoprazole in Patients with Bleeding Peptic Ulcer
OBJECTIVES: In managing patients with bleeding peptic ulcers, prevention of rebleeding is a particular challenge to hemostasis and fibrinolysis, both of which involve reactions that are impaired in acidic gastric environment. ...
Relationship between zona pellucida-induced acrosome reaction, sperm morphology, sperm-zona pellucida binding, and in vitro fertilization
Objective: To evaluate the possible relationships between sperm morphology, acrosome responsiveness to solubilized human zona pellucida, and sperm-zona binding potential among  consecutive andrology referrals and  ...
