Determination of human body burden baseline date of platinum through autopsy tissue analysis. (1/2516)

Results of analysis for platinum in 97 autopsy sets are presented. Analysis was performed by a specially developed emission spectrochemical method. Almost half of the individuals studied were found to have detectable platinum in one or more tissue samples. Platinum was found to be deposited in 13 of 21 tissue types investigated. Surprisingly high values were observed in subcutaneous fat, previously not considered to be a target site for platinum deposition. These data will serve as a human tissue platinum burden baseline in EPA's Catalyst Research Program.  (+info)

Wasting of the small hand muscles in upper and mid-cervical cord lesions. (2/2516)

Four patients are described with destructive rheumatoid arthritis of the cervical spine and neurogenic wasting of forearm and hand muscles. The pathological connection is not immediately obvious, but a relationship between these two observations is described here with clinical, radiological, electrophysiological and necropsy findings. Compression of the anterior spinal artery at upper and mid-cervical levels is demonstrated to be the likely cause of changes lower in the spinal cord. These are shown to be due to the resulting ischaemia of the anterior part of the lower cervical spinal cord, with degeneration of the neurones innervating the forearm and hand muscles. These findings favour external compression of the anterior spinal artery leading to ischaemia in a watershed area as the likeliest explanation for this otherwise inappropriate and bizarre phenomenon.  (+info)

Functional integrity of mitochondrial genomes in human platelets and autopsied brain tissues from elderly patients with Alzheimer's disease. (3/2516)

To determine whether pathogenic mutations in mtDNA are involved in phenotypic expression of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the transfer of mtDNA from elderly patients with AD into mtDNA-less (rho0) HeLa cells was carried out by fusion of platelets or synaptosomal fractions of autopsied brain tissues with rho0 HeLa cells. The results showed that mtDNA in postmortem brain tissue survives for a long time without degradation and could be rescued in rho0 HeLa cells. Next, the cybrid clones repopulated with exogenously imported mtDNA from patients with AD were used for examination of respiratory enzyme activity and transfer of mtDNA with the pathogenic mutations that induce mitochondrial dysfunction. The presence of the mutated mtDNA was restricted to brain tissues and their cybrid clones that formed with synaptosomes as mtDNA donors, whereas no cybrid clones that isolated with platelets as mtDNA donors had detectable mutated mtDNA. However, biochemical analyses showed that all cybrid clones with mtDNA imported from platelets or brain tissues of patients with AD restored mitochondrial respiration activity to almost the same levels as those of cybrid clones with mtDNA from age-matched normal controls, suggesting functional integrity of mtDNA in both platelets and brain tissues of elderly patients with AD. These observations warrant the reassessment of the conventional concept that the accumulation of pathogenic mutations in mtDNA throughout the aging process is responsible for the decrease of mitochondrial respiration capacity with age and with the development of age-associated neurodegenerative diseases.  (+info)

beta-amyloid load is not influenced by the severity of cardiovascular disease in aged and demented patients. (4/2516)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study was conducted to analyze the association between reported risk factors for Alzheimer's disease, apolipoprotein E epsilon4 allele, and cardiovascular disease and neuropathological changes essential for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. METHODS: Our data are based on clinical and postmortem evaluations of a cohort of nondemented (n=118) and demented (n=107) individuals. A cardiovascular index was calculated at autopsy to estimate the extent of cardiovascular disease. Neuropathological lesions such as senile/neuritic plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, beta-amyloid load, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, and the load of paired helical filaments were determined. RESULTS: The aforementioned neuropathological lesions did not show any positive significant correlation with cardiovascular index. In contrast, the extent of Alzheimer's lesions was significantly higher in those nondemented and demented patients carrying the apolipoprotein E epsilon4 allele than in those without this allele. CONCLUSIONS: Our results demonstrate that the apolipoprotein E epsilon4 allele, but not cardiovascular disease, indeed influences the extent of Alzheimer's lesions seen in the brain tissue of demented patients as well as asymptomatic controls.  (+info)

Opportunistic Pneumocystis carinii infection in red-bellied tamarins (Saguinus labiatus). (5/2516)

P. carinii infection in red-bellied tamarins (Saguinus labiatus), born and maintained in a laboratory breeding colony, was examined by histopathologic examination postmortem. P. carinii cysts were detected in 6 of 10 red-bellied tamarins examined, by using Grocott's, toluidine blue O and immunostaining with avidin-biotin complex using antisera for rat-, simian-, and human-P. carinii. The results obtained from the present studies imply that P. carinii may be an important pathogen in this species.  (+info)

Comparison of prenatal ultrasound and postmortem findings in fetuses and infants with congenital heart defects. (6/2516)

OBJECTIVE: Detection of congenital heart defects by prenatal ultrasound examination has been one of the great challenges since the investigation for fetal anomalies became part of the routine fetal examination. This prospective study was designed to evaluate the concordance of prenatal ultrasound findings with autopsy examination in a population consisting of both referred women and non-selected pregnant women. DESIGN: Criteria for inclusion were an ultrasound examination at the National Center for Fetal Medicine and an autopsy performed during the years 1985-94. Results from the ultrasound and autopsy examinations were systematized into categories depending on the degree of concordance. RESULTS: Of 408 infants and fetuses with developmental anomalies, 106 (26%) had congenital heart defects. In 63 (59%) of these 106 cases, the heart defect was the principal reason for the termination of pregnancy or the cause of death. Excluding five cases with a secundum atrial septal defect, there was complete agreement between the ultrasound examination and the autopsy findings in 74 (73%) of 101 cases. In 18 cases, there were minor discrepancies between ultrasound and autopsy findings. The main diagnosis was thus correct in 92 cases (91%). From the first time period (1985-89) to the second (1990-94), the detection rate of all heart defects increased from 48% to 82%. CONCLUSION: This study confirms a good correlation between ultrasound and autopsy diagnoses in fetuses and infants with congenital heart defects. A significant improvement in the detection of heart defects occurred from the first time period to the second and was probably due to increased experience and technical advances.  (+info)

Thromboatheromatous complications of umbilical arterial catheterization in the newborn period. Clinicopathological study. (7/2516)

Severe catheter-related thromboatheromatous lesions were found at necropsy in 33 of 56 infants who had umbilical arterial catheters passed during life. In infants dying within 8 days of insertion of the catheter, varying degrees of thrombosis of the aorta and its major branches were seen. With increasing thrombosis and aging of the thrombus, fatty deposits were seen first within the thrombus, and then in the intima and media. In addition there was evidence of proliferation of medial smooth muscle cells and of disruption of the medial architecture below the thrombus, characterized by the presence of abundant mucopolysaccharide. In infants who survived longer, varying degrees of organization of the thrombus could be traced, leading eventually to raised fibrous plaques with lipid and occasionally calcification. The lesions in the older infants were similar in many respects to experimental thromboatheromatous lesions produced in rabbits, and to some lesions of artheroma occurring spontaneously in humans. A wide variety of embolic phenomena were found, with features suggesting asynchrony of embolic episodes. The presence of thrombotic lesions could not be related to birthweight, Apgar scores at 1 and 5 minutes, age at catheterization, duration of catheterization, underlying disease process, age at death or the presence of hypothermia, acidosis, or anomalies in coagulation tests. There is a need for less hazardous methods of monitoring arterial oxygen tension.  (+info)

Short left coronary artery trunk as a risk factor in the development of coronary atherosclerosis. Pathological study. (8/2516)

The relation between the length of the main left coronary artery and the degree of atherosclerosis in its branches was studied by postmortem examination in 204 subjects aged 20 to 90 years. The findings suggest that in cases with a short main left coronary artery the atherosclerotic lesions in the anterior descending and circumflex branches appear earlier, progress faster at higher levels of severity, and lead more frequently to myocardial infarction, than in cases with a long left coronary artery trunk. In cases over the age of 50 years, where disease is expected to have developed, it was shown that the degree of atherosclerosis in the left anterior descending and circumflex branches was inversely related to the length of the main left coronary artery. The correlation coefficients were -0-527 and -0-428, respectively, and in either case a test for zero correlations was significant (P less than 0-001). The possible changes in the haemodynamic and mechanical conditions associated with the variations of the anatomical pattern of the coronary arteries and their influence in the development of atherosclerosis are discussed. It is suggested that the length of the main left coronary artery is a congenital anatomical and possibly hereditary factor influencing the rate of development of atherosclerosis in the branches of the main left coronary artery.  (+info)

The incidence and etiological classification of valvular diseases were examined on 358 cases from 3,000 consecutive autopsies of more than 60 years of age. The incidence of valvular disease was 11.9% (358 out of 3,000 cases). Mitral stenosis was found in 23 cases (6.4%), of which 21 cases were rheumatic and the remaining 2 were mitral ring calcification (MRC). Mitral regurgitation was observed in 126 cases (35.3%): 69 of papillary muscle dysfunction, 26 of mitral valve prolapse (MVP), 16 of MRC, 9 of ruptured chordae tendineae, 3 of rheumatic and 3 of congenital. Aortic stenosis was noted in 33 cases (9.2%): 27 of calcified, 5 of rheumatic and one of congenital. Aortic regurgitation was found in 169 cases (47.2%): 112 of degenerative, 47 of syphilitic, 7 of rheumatic and 2 of aortitis syndrome. There were 6 cases (1.7%) of tricuspid regurgitation. Etiological classification revealed 6 cases (1.7%) of congenital, 36 (10%) of rheumatic, 49 (13.7%) of syphilitic, 27 (7.5%) of MVP, 69 (19.3%) of ischemic

Y1 - 1993/1/1. N2 - This study was undertaken to obtain additional information about the incidence and characteristics of fetal parvovirus B19 infection in an unselected autopsy series, and to assess the distribution and quantitation of inclusions in various organs. Autopsy records from 673 fetal and neonatal autopsies performed at Women and Infants Hospital during 1985 through 1990 were reviewed. Thirty-two cases of hydrops fetalis were identified, and, of these, 5 had parvovirus infection. This gives an incidence of fetal parvovirus infection resulting in hydrops fetalis of 0. 7% among all autopsies, and a 16% incidence among cases of hydrops. Thirty-five percent of the cases of hydrops had malformations; a muscular ventricular septal defect was noted in one of the 5 cases of parvovirus infection. ...
Physician-coded verbal autopsy (PCVA) is the most widely used method to determine causes of death (CODs) in countries where medical certification of death is uncommon. Computer-coded verbal autopsy (CCVA) methods have been proposed as a faster and cheaper alternative to PCVA, though they have not been widely compared to PCVA or to each other. We compared the performance of open-source random forest, open-source tariff method, InterVA-4, and the King-Lu method to PCVA on five datasets comprising over 24,000 verbal autopsies from low- and middle-income countries. Metrics to assess performance were positive predictive value and partial chance-corrected concordance at the individual level, and cause-specific mortality fraction accuracy and cause-specific mortality fraction error at the population level. The positive predictive value for the most probable COD predicted by the four CCVA methods averaged about 43% to 44% across the datasets. The average positive predictive value improved for the top three most
Background. Verbal autopsy (VA) is a widely used method for analyzing cause of death in absence of vital registration systems. We adapted the InterVA method to extrapolate causes of death for stillbirths and neonatal deaths from verbal autopsy questionnaires, using data from Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Nepal.. Methods. We obtained 734 stillbirth and neonatal VAs from recent community studies in rural areas: 169 from Malawi, 385 from Nepal, and 180 from Zimbabwe. Initial refinement of the InterVA model was based on 100 physician-reviewed VAs from Malawi. InterVA indicators and matrix probabilities for cause of death were reviewed for clinical and epidemiological coherence by a pediatrician-researcher and an epidemiologist involved in the development of InterVA. The modified InterVA model was evaluated by comparing population-level cause-specific mortality fractions and individual agreement from two methods of interpretation (physician review and InterVA) for a further 69 VAs from Malawi, 385 from ...
We need not look far, the governor added, for examples in which public disclosure, media scrutiny, and good journalism led to positive changes to prevent tragedies, particularly in areas such as child neglect, abuse, and trafficking.. Indeed, a joint 2012 investigation by The Denver Post and 9NEWS, Failed to Death, led to reforms of the government system that is supposed to protect children. The news organizations were able to classify some deaths as abuse through access to autopsy reports, eventually showing that 72 of 175 Colorado children who had died of child abuse in the previous five years were known to case workers.. Autopsy reports on both minors and adults are excluded from a Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) provision that makes medical records confidential. If a county coroner believes that disclosure of a particular autopsy report would cause substantial injury to the public interest, he or she can ask a court for authorization to withhold all or portions of it..

MODESTO, CALIF. The autopsy report on the deaths of Laci Peterson and her unborn son will remain sealed -- for now -- even though portions already have been leaked to the media.. Superior Court Judge Al Girolami ruled Friday that releasing the reports could hamper the investigation into Petersons death and prejudice public opinion before her husband is tried for the murder.. Scott Peterson, 30, is accused of killing his wife and unborn son last December.. Laci Peterson, 27, was eight months pregnant when she vanished just before Christmas. Her body and that of the baby -- whom the couple had planned to name Conner -- washed ashore last month in San Francisco Bay, where Scott Peterson says he was fishing when his wife disappeared.. Girolami is scheduled to hear more arguments Friday from prosecutors, who had asked that the autopsy reports be released to the public.. Their request came after media reports described portions of the autopsy results.. Prosecutors said those leaks were biased toward ...

Molecular autopsy or postmortem molecular testing is a set of molecular techniques used in forensic medicine to attempt to determine the cause of death in unexplained cases, in particular sudden unexplained deaths (for example sudden cardiac death). About 30% of sudden cardiac deaths in young people are not explained after full conventional autopsy, and are classified as sudden unexplained deaths. The use of a panel of genetic markers for long QT syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia and cardiac channel miopathies elucidated around 40 to 45% of the cases. In todays day and age the use of Molecular Autopsy has come with its share of ethical issues. The issues are raised because there are no set laws that a Medical Examiner must follow. For instance it is not required for an examiner to get permission from a relative to go forth with a molecular autopsy. This has created many issues for families because they may not always want to know the results of why a loved one ...

In light of declining autopsy rates around the world, post-mortem MR imaging is a promising alternative to conventional autopsy in the investigation of infant death. A major drawback of this non-invasive autopsy approach is the fact that histopathological and microbiological examination of the tissue is not possible. The objective of this prospective study is to compare the performance of minimally invasive, virtual autopsy, including CT-guided biopsy, with conventional autopsy procedures in a paediatric population.. Foetuses, newborns, infants and children that are referred for autopsy at three different institutions associated with the University of Zurich will be eligible for recruitment. All bodies will be examined with a commercial CT and a 3 Tesla MRI scanner, and investigators will be blinded to the results of conventional autopsy. After cross-sectional imaging, CT-guided tissue sampling will be performed by a multifunctional robotic system (Virtobot) allowing for automated post-mortem ...

However, the few autopsy studies that have investigated the association of visceral fat with atherosclerosis had small sample sizes and focused on coronary arteries of young or middle-aged White subjects. We aimed to investigate the association of pericardial fat (PF) and abdominal visceral fat (AVF) with atherosclerosis in the aorta, coronary, carotid, and cerebral arteries in a large autopsy study. MATERIALS AND METHODS:We evaluated deceased subjects aged 30 years or above. We dissected and weighted the PF and the AVF and evaluated the atherosclerotic burden in the aorta, as
Autopsy reports have traditionally been used as part of the trauma performance improvement (PI) process. They are typically a tool to help determine preventability of death in cases where the etiology is not clear. Deaths that occur immediately prior to arrival or in the ED are typically those in which most questions arise.. The American College of Surgeons Trauma Verification Program includes a question on what percentage of deaths at a trauma center undergo autopsy. Low numbers are usually discussed further, and strategies for improving them are considered. But are autopsies really that helpful?. A total of 434 trauma fatalities in one state over a one year period were reviewed by a multidisciplinary committee and preventability of death was determined. Changes in preventability and diagnosis were noted after autopsy results were available. The autopsy rate was 83% for prehospital deaths and 37% for in-hospital deaths. Only 69% were complete autopsies; the remainder were limited internal or ...
What happens at an autopsy?. Whitney Houstons autopsy took place the day after the singer was found dead in a hotel room, The Los Angeles Criminal Law Blog reports. Toxicology tests, which are part of the autopsy, may take weeks to complete.. An autopsy begins with the dissection of a dead body. Details are a bit gory: A pathologist makes incisions, then removes and inspects vital organs like the heart, lungs, brain, stomach, and intestines, according to the Oxford Companion to the Body. Tissue and fluid samples are taken from these organs, especially if they appear diseased or injured.. When is an autopsy performed?. State laws vary in their autopsy requirements, but in general, a forensic autopsy must be performed after a suspicious, violent, or unexpected death, Oxford says. Thats why the death of an otherwise healthy Whitney Houston, who was just 48, led to a forensic autopsy.. Compare that to a hospital or medical autopsy, which generally follows a patients ostensibly natural death in a ...
The Douglas County coroner has released autopsy reports in three of the four deaths caused by a North Lawrence wreck, and the countys top prosecutor says shes nearing a decision on possible charges stemming from the accident..

According to the report, they were with friends drinking alcoholic beverages in a rural field after bars had closed.. According to toxicology tests, Longhats blood-alcohol concentration was .08, which is the point of legal intoxication, according to Kansas laws. Whitebull and Red Elk had blood-alcohol concentrations of .22, according to coroner Erik Mitchells report.. The three men were killed when they were ejected from the bed of a pickup truck driven by Manuel Brown, 20, on Aug. 29 in North Lawrence. The truck hit Union Pacific railroad tracks near Seventh and ...
The cause of death has been released in connection with the September murder of a Goldsboro teenager. Kennedy McLaurin, 16, who was kidnapped and murdered in 2012, had been beaten, burned and shot twice in the chest before being buried in a temporary grave, according to an autopsy report released Tuesday by the state Chief Medical Examiners Office in Chapel Hill. The body of Kennedy Fitzgerald McLaurin, 16, was discovered in a shallow grave on a farm south of Goldsboro more than a week after he disappeared. Leonard Eugene Joyner, 21, Jerome Jilah Butts, 19, Kevin Edward Smith, 18, and Curtis Etheredge, 17, all face charges of murder in connection with his death. The autopsy report indicated that McLaurins body was first buried in a shallow grave and then re-buried. He had been hit over the head with a shovel, the report said. McLaurin, 16, of Rose Street, was first reported missing to Goldsboro police by his mother on Sunday, Sept. 9. He was reportedly abducted by several men on Bain Street in ...

Our results show that the responses given by mothers and birth attendants to nearly all questions on the perinatal verbal autopsy questionnaire are highly concordant (80% or greater agreement) when the interviews take place within seven days after the perinatal death. This suggests that interviewing birth attendants instead of mothers may be a suitable alternative for collecting data for verbal autopsy. Using birth attendants instead of mothers as perinatal verbal autopsy respondents has potential advantages from the public health, economic, logistical, emotional and ethical perspectives. Current perinatal verbal autopsy methods are such that interviewers sometimes have to travel long distances to collect information for verbal autopsy from bereaved mothers living outside their communities.13,15,19 The process can take months, is relatively expensive and involves extensive logistical planning.18,24 Additionally, in the early stages of planning, community leaders often have to attend sessions ...

Purpose: Autopsy has been considered the gold standard for diagnosing the cause of death. Discrepancies between pre and post-mortem diagnosis continue to be reported, ranging from 4.1 to 49.8% of cases referred for autopsy examination. Methods and Materials: Retrospective study. It was included all autopsies of heart transplanted patients performed between 2000-2010. Clinical data of patients, medical cause of death and cause of death at autopsy were analyzed. Then pre-mortem diagnosis was confronted with the cause ofdeath at necropsy according to the criteria of Goldman et al. (N Engl J Med 1983;308:1000.) Results: 48 autopsies were analyzed; 29 (60.4%) had a nondiscrepant diagnosis, 16 (33.3%) had a discrepant diagnosis and 3 (6.3%) had uncertain autopsy diagnosis. Among the discrepant diagnosis, 15 (31.3%) had possible impact on survival and 1 (2.1%) had no impact on survival. Among those pre-morten diagnoses associated with discrepancies, infection (31.3%) heads the list, followed by ...
In this study, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and meningitis were the most common specific causes of death among adults. The study identified the rise in deaths due to non-communicable diseases. The majority of deaths occurred among those aged 50 + years. Tuberculosis and cerebrovascular diseases were the leading specific causes of death for adults 50 and older. Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS were the leading specific causes of death for those 25-49 years old. Meningitis and tuberculosis were the leading specific causes of death for those 15-24 years old. In rural dwellers, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and meningitis were the main causes of death, whereas in urban areas, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, cerebrovascular diseases, and meningitis were the major specific causes of death among adults.. Communicable and non-communicable diseases, and external causes were the leading broad causes of deaths in the study area. The finding is consistent with the evidence from Dodowa HDSS that the major causes of death were ...

The new autopsy protocol model report was designed as a fixed format to describe the cardiovascular diseases observed at our institution,...
Background: Glomerular filtration rate and decline in renal function can be improved by global cardiovascular prevention. However, the prevalence of nephroangiosclerosis in patients with stroke is unknown.. Methods: Using an autopsy data bank, we studied the prevalence of nephroangiosclerosis in 820 consecutive autopsies of neurologic patients.. Results: Among the 820 autopsies, 354 had pathologic evidence of stroke and 466 had other neurologic diseases. Nephroangiosclerosis was found in 39.8% (95% confidence interval [CI], 34.7-44.9) of patients with stroke vs 9.0% (95% CI, 6.4-11.6) in patients with other neurologic diseases. The odds ratio (OR) for nephroangiosclerosis, adjusted for age and sex, was 4.37 (95% CI, 2.92-6.52), and was 2.94 (95% CI, 1.83-4.74) after further adjustment for cardiovascular risk factors. Among the 354 stroke patients, the prevalence of nephroangiosclerosis was similar in patients with brain infarction and in those with brain hemorrhage, in patients with or without ...
PURPOSE: Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) incidence has been reported to have increased three- to 15-fold in the past few decades. It is unclear whether this represents overdiagnosis or a true increase in incidence. Therefore, the current study aimed to estimate the prevalence of incidental DTC in published autopsy series and determine whether this prevalence has been increasing over time. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science were searched from inception to December 2015 for relevant studies. Two authors searched for all autopsy studies that had included patients with no known history of thyroid pathology and reported the prevalence of incidental DTC (iDTC). Two authors independently extracted the data, and discrepancies were resolved by another author. The pooled prevalence of iDTC was assessed using a fixed-effects meta-analysis model with robust error variance. The time effect was studied using an inverse-variance weighted logit-linear regression model with robust error

Chimpanzee autopsy study reinforces urgent need for U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services to define and implement retirement criteria to get chimpanzees to sanctuary. Oct. 22, 2012 - Boston, Mass. - A Review of Autopsy Reports on Chimpanzees in or from U.S. Laboratories, in press for the October 2012 journal Alternatives to Laboratory Animals (ATLA), Volume 40, Issue 5, compiles data from 110 autopsies performed in the last 10 years on chimpanzees who died in or were from laboratories. The data show a full 64% of those chimpanzees suffered significant chronic illnesses and 69% had multi-organ diseases that should have rendered them too sick for research use. Yet, despite this knowledge on the part of the laboratories, many of these chimpanzees were held in labs for research despite their poor health and unsuitability for use.. The study raises concerns that labs circumvent their ethical and scientific responsibilities by not retiring chimpanzees who should be deemed no longer needed for ...

Results:. Of 285 patients, 47 underwent both virtual and medical autopsy. Of 196 clinical diagnoses made before death, 173 (88%) were identified by virtual autopsy and 183 (93%) by medical autopsy. Fourteen new major and 88 new minor diagnoses were detected by any autopsy method. The main diagnoses missed by virtual autopsy were cardiovascular events (9 of 72) and cancer (12 of 30). In contrast, medical autopsy missed 13 traumatic fractures and 2 pneumothoraces. Among 115 additional patients in whom only virtual autopsy was performed, 11 new major diagnoses were made. ...
BACKGROUND: It is difficult to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of biopsy for prostate cancer because men with negative biopsy do not undergo radical prostatectomy and thus have no confirmation of biopsy findings. METHODS: We performed 18-core needle biopsies on autopsy prostates from 164 men who had no history of prostate cancer. Six-core biopsies were taken from each of the mid peripheral zone (MPZ), the lateral peripheral zone (LPZ), and the central zone (CZ). We tested associations between age and tumor characteristics and analyzed the sensitivity of biopsies at each site. All statistical tests were two-sided. RESULTS: Prostate cancer was present in 47 (29%) prostates. Of the 47 cancers detected, 20 were clinically significant according to histologic criteria. Tumor volume was associated with tumor grade (P = .012) and with age (P|.001). The biopsies from the CZ did not detect any cancer that was not present in biopsies of either the MPZ or LPZ. The sensitivity of the biopsies taken from the MPZ and
An autopsy (also called a post-mortem examination) is a medical examination of a corpse to find out what killed it (disease or injury). Autopsies are done by specialised doctors, called pathologists. Autopsies are not done all the time. They are usually done either for medical reasons, or for legal ones. One of the legal reasons why an autopsy is done is to find out if the death was the result of a crime. A medical case is to find the cause of death when it is unclear. Sometimes autopsies are done to train new doctors. Sometimes, the cause of death can be found by simply looking at the corpse without opening it. In other cases, it may need to be opened, to find the cause of death. If it is opened, it is usually closed again; most of the time, corpses are buried. Before being buried, they are on display for some time. For this, they need to look acceptable. In certain cases, like when the corpse is opened, special permissions are perhaps necessary. These are usually given by the closest living ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of autopsy in death resulting from trauma. AU - Stothert, Joseph C.. AU - Gbaanador, Gbaranen B.M.. AU - Herndon, David N.. PY - 1990/8. Y1 - 1990/8. N2 - This study examined the difference between clinical impressions and autopsy findings in a group of patients dying on a university surgical service after blunt injury, penetrating injury, or thermal burns. Of 215 patients dying between the years 1984 and 1988, 212 were included in this study (autopsy rate, 98.6%). Major discrepancies in clinical diagnosis versus the anatomic diagnosis at autopsy were found to occur in approximately 30% of patients. The incidence of errors in diagnosis which may have impacted on survival in these groups of injured patients was quite low (5.1%). These data support the continued practice of obtaining autopsy in all patients dying from trauma. This information is clinically relevant, and, in todays atmosphere of quality assurance, absolutely necessary for a modern trauma center.. AB - This ...

The autopsy findings of a 66-year-old man who died of severe anemia caused by undiagnosed prostate cancer are presented. The findings suggested the condition of severe anemia. The infiltration and metastasis of the prostate specific antigen (PSA) positive adenocarcinoma was observed at the bladder, rectum and bone. Blood clot attached to the mucosal surface and trabeculation of the bladder and blood clot in the rectum was observed. Furthermore, the serum PSA level was markedly high, and thought to be valuable for a postmortem diagnosis of prostate cancer. The existence of rectal infiltration of the prostate cancer is a rare complication, and could indicate particularly advanced disease. The anemia found in this case was suspected to be caused by the combination of massive metastasis to the bone and active blood loss from the mucosa of the bladder and rectum. Moreover, the utility of postmortem measurement of serum PSA in the diagnosis of prostate cancer was suggested.

Most of the time, most of the clinical diagnoses for which the patient is being treated are correct, even after autopsy. However, 5-10% of autopsies disclose findings that would have changed treatment and perhaps resulted in a better outcome, had they been known. Physicians, especially at this academic teaching hospital, can directly benefit for knowing these results and this improves their practice. Often at autopsy a clinical mystery is solved, such as What was that shadow in the lung? or Why did he develop shock and die? Autopsy findings usually bring a degree of peace and closure to the next of kin. The next of kin often learn: 1) the clinical diagnoses and treatment were correct; 2) the patients disease was far-advanced and nothing more could have been done. Occasionally, autopsy findings may suggest a disease or condition that is inherited or contagious; the living may then be screened or tested for such a disease. Sudden, unexpected death is another event that may be better dealt ...

After an initial autopsy report came back inconclusive, medical examiners have revealed the official cause of death for Juice WRLD.
A source with knowledge of Wilsons statements said the officer had told investigators that Brown had struggled for Wilsons pistol inside a police SUV and that Wilson had fired the gun twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Later, Wilson fired additional shots that killed Brown and ignited a national controversy. The St. Louis medical examiner, Dr. Michael Graham, who is not part of the official investigation, reviewed the autopsy report for the newspaper. He said Tuesday that it does support that there was a significant altercation at the car. Graham said the examination indicated a shot traveled from the tip of Browns right thumb toward his wrist. The official report notes an absence of stippling, powder burns around a wound that indicate a shot fired at relatively short range. But Graham said, Sometimes when its really close, such as within an inch or so, there is no stipple, just smoke. The report on a supplemental microscopic exam of tissue from the thumb wound showed foreign matter ...
