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)

An autopsy is a medical examination of a dead body to determine the cause of death. It involves a thorough examination of the body, including internal organs and tissues, to identify any signs of disease, injury, or other conditions that may have contributed to the person's death. During an autopsy, the body is typically opened and the organs and tissues are removed and examined under a microscope or other specialized equipment. The pathologist who performs the autopsy will also take samples of tissue and fluids for further analysis in the laboratory. Autopsies can be performed for a variety of reasons, including to determine the cause of death in cases where the death was unexpected or unexplained, to investigate criminal or suspicious deaths, or to provide information for medical research. They are an important tool for advancing medical knowledge and improving public health.

In the medical field, the cause of death is the underlying reason or condition that directly led to a person's death. It is the primary factor that initiated the chain of events that ultimately resulted in the person's demise. The cause of death is typically determined by a medical examiner or a doctor who has been authorized to issue a death certificate. This determination is based on a thorough examination of the person's medical history, physical examination, and any relevant test results. The cause of death can be either an acute or chronic condition, and it can be related to a variety of factors, including illness, injury, genetics, environmental factors, or lifestyle choices. Some common causes of death include heart disease, cancer, stroke, respiratory failure, and accidents.

Coroners and medical examiners are officials who are responsible for investigating deaths that occur suddenly or unexpectedly, or deaths that are deemed suspicious. They are also responsible for determining the cause of death and making a ruling on whether the death was natural, accidental, or the result of foul play. Coroners are typically elected officials who serve in a county or district, while medical examiners are appointed by the government and serve at the state or local level. They are responsible for conducting autopsies, which involve examining the body and its organs to determine the cause of death. They may also review medical records, interview witnesses, and consult with other medical professionals as part of their investigation. The findings of a coroner or medical examiner can have important legal and medical implications, and their reports may be used in court proceedings or to inform medical treatment decisions.

In the medical field, "Death, Sudden" refers to an unexpected and rapid loss of life, typically occurring within minutes to hours of the onset of symptoms. Sudden death can be caused by a variety of factors, including heart attacks, strokes, sudden arrhythmias, severe allergic reactions, and other medical emergencies. It is often characterized by the absence of warning signs or symptoms, and can occur in both young and old individuals. Sudden death is a serious medical emergency that requires immediate attention and intervention to prevent further harm or loss of life.

Postmortem changes refer to the physical and chemical changes that occur in the body after death. These changes can be observed during a postmortem examination, also known as an autopsy, and can provide important clues about the cause and time of death. Some common postmortem changes include: 1. Rigor mortis: This is the stiffening of the muscles that occurs after death due to the buildup of lactic acid. 2. Algor mortis: This is the cooling of the body after death due to the lack of blood flow and metabolic activity. 3. Livor mortis: This is the discoloration of the skin and tissues due to pooling of blood in the lowest parts of the body. 4. Decomposition: This is the breakdown of the body's tissues and organs due to the action of bacteria and other microorganisms. 5. Autolysis: This is the breakdown of the body's tissues by the body's own enzymes. 6. Putrefaction: This is the advanced stage of decomposition, characterized by the production of gases and the release of foul-smelling fluids. Understanding postmortem changes is important for forensic pathologists and other medical professionals who are investigating deaths and determining the cause and manner of death.

In the medical field, burial refers to the process of disposing of a deceased person's remains through the placement of the body in a grave or tomb. This process is typically carried out after a person has passed away and their body has undergone the necessary procedures, such as embalming or cremation. Burial can be performed in a variety of ways, including traditional ground burial, entombment in a mausoleum, or scattering of ashes in a designated area. The specific method of burial may vary depending on cultural, religious, or personal preferences. In addition to the physical act of burial, there may be various medical procedures involved in preparing the body for burial, such as the removal of medical devices or the administration of medications to preserve the body. The medical professionals involved in these procedures may include doctors, nurses, morticians, and funeral directors.

"Abortion, Eugenic" is not a commonly used term in the medical field. However, it could potentially refer to the use of abortion as a means of eugenics, which is the practice of selectively breeding individuals to improve the genetic qualities of a population. In the past, eugenics was used to justify the forced sterilization of individuals deemed "unfit" or "undesirable" by society, such as those with disabilities, mental illness, or criminal records. Some proponents of eugenics also advocated for the selective termination of pregnancies based on the genetic characteristics of the fetus, with the goal of improving the overall genetic quality of the population. However, the use of eugenics is widely considered unethical and has been largely abandoned in modern medicine. Abortion is a legal medical procedure that is typically performed to terminate a pregnancy for a variety of reasons, including the health of the mother or the fetus, or as a means of family planning. It is not used as a means of eugenics.

In the medical field, the brain is the most complex and vital organ in the human body. It is responsible for controlling and coordinating all bodily functions, including movement, sensation, thought, emotion, and memory. The brain is located in the skull and is protected by the skull bones and cerebrospinal fluid. The brain is composed of billions of nerve cells, or neurons, which communicate with each other through electrical and chemical signals. These neurons are organized into different regions of the brain, each with its own specific functions. The brain is also divided into two hemispheres, the left and right, which are connected by a bundle of nerve fibers called the corpus callosum. Damage to the brain can result in a wide range of neurological disorders, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy. Treatment for brain disorders often involves medications, surgery, and rehabilitation therapies to help restore function and improve quality of life.

Fetal diseases refer to medical conditions that affect the developing fetus during pregnancy. These conditions can be genetic, infectious, or caused by environmental factors. Fetal diseases can range from minor abnormalities that do not affect the baby's health to life-threatening conditions that require medical intervention. Some common fetal diseases include chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome, neural tube defects such as spina bifida, and congenital heart defects. Fetal infections such as rubella, cytomegalovirus, and Zika virus can also cause fetal diseases. Environmental factors such as exposure to certain medications, alcohol, or tobacco can also increase the risk of fetal diseases. Fetal diseases can be detected through prenatal testing, such as ultrasound, amniocentesis, or chorionic villus sampling. Early detection and intervention can help improve the outcome for the baby and the mother. Treatment options may include medication, surgery, or other medical interventions, depending on the specific condition and severity.

In the medical field, bereavement refers to the emotional and psychological response to the loss of a loved one, such as a spouse, parent, child, or friend. Bereavement is a natural and normal process that involves a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, and confusion. The grieving process can vary from person to person and can take different lengths of time. Some people may experience a period of intense grief immediately after the loss, while others may feel a sense of numbness or detachment. In the medical field, bereavement is often treated as a mental health issue, and healthcare professionals may provide support and counseling to help individuals cope with their grief. This can include therapy, medication, or other interventions designed to help individuals manage their emotions and adjust to their new reality.

  • Although very few religions completely ban all autopsies, some religious traditions place a strong emphasis on the inviolability of human remains and view anything much more than ritual cleaning of the body as a desecration (see Religions and the Autopsy). (
  • When permission for an autopsy is declined for any reason, including religious objections, the autopsy is not performed. (
  • Many physicians, however, are much less comfortable approaching a grieving family after a patient's life has ended to ask for permission for an autopsy. (
  • [ 1 ] Thus, like many other tasks that are perceived as less desirable, the task of asking for permission for an autopsy often rolls downhill to the most junior members of the medical staff (see Autopsy Rate and Physician Attitudes Toward Autopsy). (
  • In short, there is any number of compelling reasons for a physician not to request permission for an autopsy. (
  • The causes of death in children under five years were studied using a structured verbal autopsy questionnaire. (
  • In recent years, the verbal autopsy questionnaire has been widely used for collecting such information, mainly in situations where the medical certification of death in childhood is incomplete [4,5]. (
  • The objectives were to determine the causes of death in under-fives in the Syrian Arab Republic using the verbal autopsy method, in order to assess the relative public health importance of those causes. (
  • When a death was reported, trained physicians visited the household on the following day and interviewed one member of the family, preferably the mother, on the conditions and cause of death using a standardized questionnaire which followed the method of verbal autopsy. (
  • Verbal autopsy standards : ascertaining and attributing cause of death. (
  • Verbal autopsy (VA) through face-to-face interviews with caregivers is a way to determine cause of death without medical certification. (

  • [ 6 ] In medicolegal cases, a death inquest and/or autopsy is ordered by a legal authority (most commonly a medical examiner or coroner) and permission from the next-of kin is not sought, although expressed opposition from the next-of-kin is considered on a case-by-case basis. (

  • Calculation method: This indicator is calculated as the sum of autopsies requested by the coroner and those autopsies undertaken by hospitals. (
  • A recent study in Annals of Internal Medicine discusses the benefits of virtual autopsies, in which common electronic medical imaging technologies - magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and surface scans - are combined to provide forensic insights that conventional autopsies are unable to catch. (
  • Forensic scientist Michael Tsokos thinks that half of homicides in Germany are overlooked due to resistance to traditional autopsy from both doctors and victims' families. (
  • The work consisted in the search and documentary review in physical collections and in databases of materials consisting of technical proposals or reports of psychological autopsy as a forensic technique. (
  • Do trace element concentrations in the tissues of autopsied WTCHR decedents correlate with interview-based estimates of exposure? (
  • Our findings, through mid-June 2014, are that unusual trace and major elements were present in autopsy tissues among individuals who died in 2008-2009 and that concentrations of these elements appear to be correlated with interview-based estimates of WTC exposure. (
  • The primary analyses contrasted post-mortem lung tissue concentrations obtained from autopsies in 2007-2011 of 76 WTC Health Registry (WTCHR) enrollees with those of 55 community controls. (
  • With this final rule, HHS amends existing regulatory text to allow compensation for pathologists who perform autopsies on coal miners at a market rate, on a discretionary basis as needed for public health purposes. (
  • Surprisingly, perhaps, many pathologists are no more interested in autopsies than their clinical colleagues. (
  • And, unlike surgical pathology specimens or cytology specimens, most hospital pathologists are not directly reimbursed for their work on autopsies. (
  • Under such an arrangement, a group of pathologists receives the same reimbursement whether they do autopsies daily or once a year. (
  • Religious objections to autopsy occur in both medicolegal- and hospital (clinical)-based autopsies. (
  • For clinical autopsies, the purpose is generally to investigate the cause of death and the extent of natural disease. (
  • Neither we nor the patients' physicians were able to identify from the clinical data the autopsies likely to have high yields. (
  • Not surprisingly, views about autopsies often parallel views about organ and tissue donation. (
  • The procedure itself, the selection of tissue for histology, the review of the slides, and the report writing involve a substantial investment in time (see The Autopsy Report). (
  • Autopsy tissue samples were evaluated by light microscopy , Warthin-Starry stain , immunohistochemistry , and PCR for B. burgdorferi, and immunohistochemistry for complement components C4d and C9, CD3, CD79a, and decorin . (
  • Were trace elements from WTC-contaminants released on 9/11/2001 still present in tissues of World Trade Center Health Registry enrollees who died and were autopsied in 2007-2012? (
  • To test this hypothesis, we are collecting tissues from ~88 WTC Health Registry (WTCHR)-enrollees who died in 2007-2012 in ways that required autopsy and from ~ 62 matched 'community control autopsies. (
  • In pursuit of this goal, we are measuring trace and major elements in tissues obtained from individuals enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Registry (WTCHR) who died and were autopsied in 2007-2012. (

  • This document presents an investigation that sought as objective to establish the reflection elements to propose the application of the psychological autopsy technique as an aid in the expert-epidemiological study in suicide cases and in police-legal and epidemiological research in femicide cases. (
  • As a result, it was found that although the denomination of Psychological Autopsy is a general conception, there are differences between proposals, from which the technique can be refined and approximations to protocols for cases such as suicide or femicides. (
  • [ 3 ] Certain religions have objections to autopsy (eg, Islam, Judaism) in that bodily intrusion violates the sanctity of keeping the human body complete, despite those religious doctrines not strictly forbidding it. (
