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

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 ...
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 ...
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.. The autopsy reports for Yancy Longhat, 20, of Zuni, N.M.; Albert Whitebull, 25, of Kenel, S.D.; and Ray "Mike" Red Elk, 24, Anadarko, Okla., indicate all three had been drinking alcohol before 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.

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

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 ...

However, the court held that the error was "harmless" because "ample additional evidence established appellants guilt" and Dr. Miltons testimony "was mostly undisputed." Further, "although the autopsy report might have added credence to Dr. Miltons testimony that wounds caused by appellants rifle, standing alone, could have caused complainants death, that determination was not important to appellants liability as a party." Though IANAL, their conclusion seems a bit odd to me since Dr. Miltons conclusions, which the court said were allowable, were based on Dr. Florezs report. But Im never surprised when a Texas appellate court overlooks constitutional errors as "harmless" to uphold a conviction ...

Zika virus testing on formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissue specimens is conducted at CDCs Infectious Ailments Pathology Branch (IDPB) and incorporates Zika virus RT-PCR on placental and fetal/toddler tissues. Zika virus IHC may be done on placental tissues into the 2nd trimester, fetal tissues from any gestational age, and infant autopsy tissues. † Placental tissues incorporate placental disc, umbilical twine, and fetal membranes. Zika virus RNA is usually focal within just placental tissues, and tests of three sections of placenta, one particular section of umbilical wire, and a person area of fetal membrane is recommended (). For pregnancy losses and infant deaths, submission of placental tissues As well as fetal or infant autopsy tissues, if accessible, is chosen, but Otherwise obtainable will likely not preclude placental screening. § Achievable Zika virus publicity includes travel to or home in a place with threat for Zika virus transmission () in the course of pregnancy or even the ...

Chemicals. Chemicals were obtained from Sigma (St. Louis, MO) unless noted otherwise. Tritium-labeled and unlabeled BTA-1, and BTA-1 derivatives, were synthesized and characterized as described previously (Klunk et al., 2001; Mathis et al., 2002).. Postmortem tissue. Autopsy tissue was obtained from the University of Pittsburgh Alzheimer Disease Research Center Brain Bank. Clinical and postmortem diagnoses were made by standardized procedures as described previously in detail (Lopez et al., 2000). Clinical characteristics are shown in Table 1.. All nine AD brains represented fairly advanced stages of pathology as is typical of postmortem tissue. The eight control and six NAD brains were selected for having no significant evidence of neuritic plaques or cerebrovascular amyloid. In addition, there were no NFTs in the frontal cortex of any control or NAD case. Samples of medial-frontal cortex gray matter, medial-frontal cortex white matter, entorhinal cortex (EC), or cerebellum were dissected at ...

Our reviewed data demonstrated that Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) is an important pathogen and death of pyogenic meningitis, pneumonia, and other infectious diseases in children. The distribution of serotypes of S. pneumoniae showed great diversity in several studies. The penicillin nonsusceptibility rates demonstrated an increase over time in China. The prevalence of resistance to erythromycin was very high. A total of 202 paraffin-embedded lung autopsy tissues of children aged 1 month to 5 years old who died of CAP were selected at random from a hospital. Conventional PCR, southern blotting and ISPCR were used to detect S. pneumoniae in lung tissues for a mouse pneumonia model and in 202 autopsy samples from fatal childhood CAP cases, 1 month to 5 years old, between 1953-2002. Southern blotting and ISPCR detected S. pneumoniae in 107/202 (53.0%) and 106/202 (52.5%) human samples respectively. A combined total of 116/202 (57.4%) samples were found to be positive by both methods. ...
If the autopsy report is inadequate, and medical witness accounts contradictory, then what about the "hard" evidence - autopsy photographs and X-rays? Shouldnt they provide clear evidence of how many bullets there were and from what direction they came? Unfortunately it is not that simple. The extant photographs and X-rays are limited and poor-quality, and have been subject to varying interpretation. There is for instance no photo clearly showing the fatal entrance wound, though there is testimony that one was taken. Other photos, including one of the chest and one or more with a probe through Kennedys body illustrating a bullet path, were testified to but are not present in the collection. The release of the House Select Committee on Assassinations files in the 1990s, and new interviews with autopsy participants, have added to concerns that the photographic and X-ray record of the autopsy has been tampered with. Saundra Kay Spencer, the woman who processed autopsy photos after the ...
A trend in the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Japan was studied from the data of the Osaka Cancer Registry (population, 8,512,351 in 1981) for the period of 1963-1983, the Vital Statistics of Japan, Ministry of Health and Welfare, and the Japan Autopsy Registry which contained 594,132 individually filed cases in the 26-year period from 1958 to 1983. Both cancer registry data and autopsy records showed a more than 2-fold increase in HCC incidence, particularly in the last 10 years or so, among males and a less pronounced increase in females. The same trend was borne out by the cancer registries of Nagasaki City and Miyagi Prefecture and the Vital Statistics. When studied with the autopsy data, it was found that the numbers of autopsies for cirrhosis without HCC and autopsies for HCC (with and without cirrhosis) were about the same in 1958-1961 and that currently (1980-1983) the latter is about 2 times the former. As one of the possible causes of increase in HCC incidence other ...
An interesting developing story in autism research is the immune/inflammatory connection. In her senior resident thesis, Dr. Anne Comi, a former JHU colleague, along with Dr. Andy Zimmerman, reported, the increased prevalence of autoimmune disease in families of autistic offspring. Interesting, Hannah also has a maternal family history of autoimmune disease. Dr. Carlos Pardo, another one of my former chief residents, along with Andy and Dr. Vargas, published a beautiful study in the Archives of Neurology, demonstrating neuroinflammation on autopsy of brain samples and inflammation cytokine markers in the CSF of individuals with Autism. The interesting thing was that inflammation was demonstrated in autopsy specimens from adults as old as 44 years of age. The conclusion was that further research would be required to determine if inflammation was a primary disorder in autism or; alternatively, if inflammation and microglial activation was secondary to neurodegeneration. Dr. Sudhir Gupta at UC ...

However, page 5 of the autopsy report states according to her clinical history, Ms. Reaves had "an intrauterine pregnancy of 16 weeks estimated gestational age.". According to the Medical Examiner, Planned Parenthood performed an incomplete abortion on Tonya Reaves at 11:00 AM on Friday morning, July 20th. She was not transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital until 4:30 PM, where they performed a second "suction D & E" at 5:30 PM. At the hospital, Reaves complained of pain and the staff noted abdominal swelling and fluid accumulation. An ultrasound revealed a perforation on the left side of the uterus. At 10:12, Reaves was taken back into surgery for a hysterectomy, at which point they discovered an "uncontrollable bleed." She did not regain consciousness and was pronounced dead at 11:20 PM in the operating room-twelve hours after her first surgery at Planned Parenthood. The Autopsy Report indicates that her left uterine artery/vein was possibly transected, which caused the uncontrollable ...
Autopsy study correlating degree of osteoarthritis, synovitis and evidence of articular calcification.: Inflammation has been suggested as a component in the os
Guenter Breithardt from Muenster, Germany, underlined the importance of the final postmortem diagnosis to establish the mechanism of SD, whether arrhythmic or non-arrhythmic. When autopsy is negative, even after histology, by exclusion, a hereditary disease is highly probable, so that management of family members is mandatory, including genetic testing of both the victim and the family members. Molecular genetic analysis facilitates the identification of the disease carriers in the family. This procedure raises crucial problems in terms of availability, costs as well as legal implication of genetic analysis.. Conclusion: In conclusion, autopsy is useful and necessary. It may explain or not the SD. If SD remains unexplained, primary inherited arrhythmias are highly probable and genetic investigation is mandatory. The use of standardized postmortem protocols in SD cases is strongly recommended ...
Background: Recent studies raised questions about the severity of cognitive impairment associated with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). However, there have been few analyses of large, multicenter data registries for clinical-pathologic correlation.. Methods: We evaluated data from the National Alzheimers Coordinating Center registry (n = 5,813 cases meeting initial inclusion criteria) and the University of Kentucky Alzheimers Disease Center autopsy series (n = 527) to compare quantitatively the severity of cognitive impairment associated with DLB pathology vs Alzheimer disease (AD) and AD+DLB pathologies.. Results: Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) scores showed that persons with pure DLB had cognitive impairment of relatively moderate severity (final MMSE score 15.6 ± 8.7) compared to patients with pure AD and AD+DLB (final MMSE score 10.7 ± 8.6 and 10.6 ± 8.6). Persons with pure DLB pathology from both data sets had more years of formal education and were more likely to be male. ...

The bill severely limits access to autopsy photos. An identical bill in the Senate is expected to advance rapidly.. TALLAHASSEE -- With little debate or opposition, a bill that would close public access to autopsy photos passed the Florida House on Thursday night, 91-12. Rep. Randy Johnson, R-Celebration, one of the sponsors of the bill, denounced the states news media for seeking access to the autopsy photos of NASCAR racing hero Dale Earnhardt as he urged approval of the bill. "Imagine dealing with a lost husband and trying to deal with the ghoulish requests of the media for autopsy photos," Johnson said as he described the plight of Earnhardts widow after the Orlando Sentinel requested the photos. The request set off howls of outrage from racing fans around the nation who sent thousands of e-mails to Gov. Jeb Bush and members of the Legislature in protest. Johnson, Senate Majority Leader Jim King and other legislators quickly cobbled together bills to cut off access to autopsy photos. The ...

With any of the above methods for analyzing live systems and devices there is still the problem that your Autopsy case wont be very useful after you disconnect from the drive. It will refer to a device that no longer exists and, more importantly, you may not have a copy of any files of interest that you observed during the triage.. To solve this problem you can choose to make a "sparse VHD" as Autopsy is processing the device. This will save a copy of every sector that Autopsy reads, which will include file system structures (such as Master File Tables) and files that passed the ingest filters (such as all pictures).. VHD is a file format used by Microsoft Virtual Machines that is readable by Windows and other forensic tools. The VHD will grow in size as Autopsy reads more data from the target drive.. To create a sparse VHD, check the box for "Make a VHD image..." when selecting the disk to analyze.. ...

Chagas disease is a tropical disease that is prevalent in Latin America. Described herein is an autopsy case of the sudden death of a 48-year-old Brazilian man who had stayed in Japan for 7 years. The man, who had a history of Chagas disease, collapsed unexpectedly at work. Because the cause of death was unknown, forensic autopsy examination was performed. As gross findings, the heart was dilated and rounded with an increase in size and weight. The esophagus and large intestine were dilated moderately, with extensive interstitial inflammatory infiltration in the cardiac muscle, but no apparent parasite nest was observed in various tissues ...
Until recently, learning from autopsy was vibrant in Auckland. Many medical students from third year and above voluntarily attended daily autopsy teaching, and were enthusiastic about this method of learning. However, in early 2002, students were banned from attending coronial autopsies under an interpretation of New Zealands Coroners Act. The decision was made in the environment following widespread media coverage of the discovery that childrens hearts removed at autopsies had been retained for teaching without the familys consent in past decades.1 Media reporting of body organ retention has … ...

Balaji Krishnan, Ph.D., and colleagues have proposed two types of studies to explore the role of phospholipase D1 in synapse degeneration and Alzheimers disease. For the first type of study, the researchers will obtain samples of tissue from autopsy specimens and use biochemical methods to measure the activity of phospholipase D1. The team will study how the activity of this protein changes in people who have mild cognitive impairment, a condition that sometimes precedes Alzheimers, and those that go on to develop Alzheimers disease. For the second study, Dr. Krishnan and colleagues will use mice that have been genetically altered to have an Alzheimers-like condition. The researchers will treat the mice with a drug known to inhibit phospholipase D1, and then measure how such treatment affects the onset or progression of Alzheimers like changes in brain function and behavior.

Symptomatic congestive heart failure has been described as part of the spectrum of human immunodeficiency virus (HlV)-related cardiac disease (1-3). Echocardiographic studies have further documented dilated cardiomyopathy in 11% to 22% of HIV-infected adults (4, 5).. The direct etiologic role of HIV infection in cardiomyopathy is controversial. In-situ hybridization studies have failed to show HIV genomic material in endomyocardial biopsy samples taken from patients with HIV-associated myocarditis and clinically established congestive heart failure (6). Rare infected myocytes have, however, been shown using similar techniques in autopsy specimens from patients without heart disease (7). Other etiologies should be considered, such as ...
The present autopsy study revealed a positive association between the abdominal type of body fat accumulation and the severity of coronary artery pathology in ante mortem healthy women from 19 to 49 years of age. Advanced coronary lesions with lipid cores and large amounts of macrophage foam cells were seen in women with high WHR, even women in their twenties and thirties.. Previous autopsy-based studies have brought out some positive associations between obesity and coronary atherosclerosis in younger individuals, but mainly in men. Significant associations between the extent of intimal fatty streaks and raised lesions in the RCA and both BMI and the thickness of the panniculus adiposus in men younger than 34 years of age were reported by McGill et al,19 but they used only visual estimation of the RCA. We have previously found a positive association between increased WHR and clinically silent coronary lesions in men younger than 40 years of age.13 Our other previous autopsy study on females ...
The wall of the temporal bone separating the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) from surroundings organs, can be very thin and also have development defects. Distortion effects in the radiographic reproduction of these bone walls can result in misinterpretations when exanimating suspected pathologic changes in the region. These areas need to be radiographic identified prior to taking any invasive measures. Incorrect assessment of bone thickness may lead to serious sequelae due to the risk of penetration injury during invasive investigation or treatment of the TMJ or ear. The purpose of this project was to gain more detailed knowledge about the anatomy and topography of the TMJ with special reference to its bone demarcations regarding adjacent organs and to evaluate the tomographic and computed tomographic (CT) depiction of these bone walls. To obtain a basic analysis of the tissue anatomy and tomographic and CT reproduction of the TMJ region, autopsy specimens were studied. After CT and conventional ...

How might one structure such a study? I am at a loss to conceive this. What would be the controls? Obviously if there some gross anatomic finding (ruptured aorta, large thrombosis in a key structure), this could be viewed as definitive, But what of more subtle findings? One would need to know the frequency of such findings in different clinical contexts. I am reminded of the perception of anatomic pathology as an invariant gold standard and how this has tended to break down. What do you do when the gold standard is not so golden?

Alien Autopsy is a humorous film that looks at the incidents surrounding the release of the infamous "alien autopsy" video from 1995. That year, mysterious top-secret black-and-white footage, supposedly filmed during the 1947 Roswell incident, was broadcast around the world. It showed the autopsy of an alien lifeform. The men responsible for the discovery of the footage, buddies Ray (Declan Donnelly) and Gary (Ant McPartlin), are thrown into intense media scrutiny. But the guys have an even bigger secret. And its not very pretty. Based on true events, Alien Autopsy is the alternately bizarre and frequently quirky story of the two unlikely lads from London who become icons in UFOlogy with a discovery that stunned millions whove long searched for evidence of extraterrestrial life. Bill Pullman and Harry Dean Stanton also star. Watch a clip from the film ...
BACKGROUND:Stroke is a leading cause of mortality and disability worldwide and the economic costs of treatment and post-stroke care are substantial. The Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) provides a systematic, comparable method of quantifying health loss by disease, age, sex, year, and location to provide information to health systems and policy makers on more than 300 causes of disease and injury, including stroke. The results presented here are the estimates of burden due to overall stroke and ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke from GBD 2016. METHODS:We report estimates and corresponding uncertainty intervals (UIs), from 1990 to 2016, for incidence, prevalence, deaths, years of life lost (YLLs), years lived with disability (YLDs), and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs). DALYs were generated by summing YLLs and YLDs. Cause-specific mortality was estimated using an ensemble modelling process with vital registration and verbal autopsy data as inputs. Non-fatal ...
Since Mikhail Lesin was found dead in a D.C. hotel room in 2015, one question has persisted: did the onetime Kremlin insider really die of blunt-force trauma caused by drunken falls? Multiple forensic experts who studied autopsy records obtained by RFE/RL raise suspicions -- and new questions.
Of greatest concern to me at the moment is the Autopsy Report.. At a glance, the report does not contain all of the standard elements, descriptions of organs and body are not specific, organ weights are inaccurate and appear to be rounded guesstimates rather than actual, signature of pathologist is on page 2 of a 6 page report and no where else, authenticity of physicians signature is questionable… and finally, the report is not on appropriate letterhead nor is the agency/physician conducting autopsy identified.. Additionally, an independent physician reviewed the report and discovered numerous errors that he was "…surprised a competent physician would make.". ...

Abstract Introduction: A pathologist doing a pediatric autopsy will commonly assess childs development by comparing the postmortem data to standardized population parameters using body and organ measurement charts. Although a number of resources are available, many are outdated and have significant limitations. Objectives: To create Ontario population-specific organ and body measurement mean charts for infants and to explore relationships between body measurements/organ weights and cause of death, age, and gender of the deceased. Methods: A database of 900 cases of infant and neonatal deaths that were investigated by Ontario coroners from 2000 to 2010 was retrospectively analyzed. Results and Conclusions: No differences were found between the cause of death groups in relation to the body weight, heart, and pancreas weights. Lungs, brains, livers and spleens tended to be heavier in SIDS and SUDS cases compared to Control group while adrenal glands and kidneys had a tendency of being smaller.
Accessory spleen or splenule is a common congenital anomaly in which an ectopic focus of normal splenic tissue is found separate from the main body of the spleen. They occur in approximately 10% of the population1,2. In the majority of cases these are located at or near the splenic hilum. The pancreatic tail is also a common location for these lesions occurring in approximately 16% or 61 of 364 in a large autopsy series by Halpert and Gyorkey1 and 21.8% on large CT series3. Splenules may range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters however they are most typically less than 2cm1,3. They are usually single but may be multiple. The majority are asymptomatic incidental findings usually on CT or ultrasound of the abdomen. Rarely, they may become symptomatic because of rupture, hemorrhage, torsion or cyst formation3. The primary clinical significance of these lesions resides in their mimicry of neoplasm.. Differentiation between splenule or splenic lobulation and neoplasm may be ...

The new Hong Kong Coroners Ordinance was published in April 1997. It introduced an expanded set of guidelines for reporting deaths to the coroner as well as the threat of criminal proceedings for non- compliance. The Ordinance is due to be implemented in early 1998. The aim of this study is to determine the likely effect of the new law on the relative proportion of coroners and hospital (consent) autopsies. A total of 352 consecutive autopsy cases were reviewed; 170 (48.3%) were referred for coroners autopsies and 182 (51.7%) for hospital autopsies. By applying the criteria of the current ordinance, there should have been 213 (60.5%) coroners autopsies and 139 (39.5%) hospital autopsies-that is, 43 hospital autopsies should have been coroners autopsies. Under the new Coroners Ordinance, there would be 300 (85.2%) coroners autopsies and only 52 (14.8%) hospital autopsies. The new Coroners Ordinance is likely to result in a greater number of requests for coroners autopsies with a ...

Lymphomas arising in the central nervous system (CNS) of immunocompromised hosts are most commonly non-Hodgkins lymphomas and are highly associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Here we report an autopsy case of EBV-associated CNS diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in a host suffering from systemic lupus erythematosus who underwent immunosuppressive therapy. After autopsy, EBV-associated CNS DLBCL as well as pulmonary mixed aspergillosis and Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia were added to the cause of clinical manifestations of complicated pneumonia and cerebral hemorrhage in this immunocompromised patient. In conclusion, complex disease processes were revealed by autopsy in this case, indicating that the clinicopathological correlations observed through autopsy can improve our understanding of disease progression and contribute to the management of similar patients in the future. ...
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is a clinically effective neurosurgical treatment for Parkinson disease. Tissue reaction to chronic DBS therapy and the definitive location of active stimulation contacts are best studied on a postmortem basis in patients who have undergone DBS. The authors report the postmortem analysis of STN DBS following 5 years and 11 months of effective chronic stimulation including the histologically verified location of the active contacts associated with bilateral implants. They also describe tissue response to intraoperative test passes with recording microelectrodes and stimulating semimacroelectrodes. The results indicated that 1) the neural tissue surrounding active and nonactive contacts responds similarly, with a thin glial capsule and foreign-body giant cell reaction surrounding the leads as well as piloid gliosis, hemosiderin-laden macrophages, scattered lymphocytes, and Rosenthal fibers; 2) there was evidence of separate tracts in ...

Ventricular drainage was instituted, and the tumor mass was reduced by partial resection and local irradiation. A ventriculoperitoneal shunt was then placed. However, the tumor recurred 16 months later, with extensive ventricular seeding and peritoneal metastasis through the shunt tube. The child died 22 months after onset. Histological study of surgical specimens of the primary tumor and autopsy specimens of the brain and peritoneal metastic tumors revealed poorly differentiated, small, round cells with numerous mitotic figures. In addition, autopsy specimens of the brain tumor contained areas of ependymal, oligodendroblastic, and ...

ERLWANGER, K H; COSTELLO, M A and MEYER, L C R. Uterine torsion in a Sprague Dawley rat (Rattus norvegicus). J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.3, pp.183-184. ISSN 2224-9435.. Uterine torsion is a twisting of the uterus or uterine horn perpendicular to its long axis. We report a case of uterine torsion in an adult breeding Sprague Dawley rat. The rat died a month after her last recorded delivery. Post mortem examination of the rat revealed 270º torsion of the right uterine horn. The uterus contained a single foetus. The liver was pale and enlarged. The rest of the viscera appeared normal. Histopathological examination showed acute hepatic necrosis and pulmonary congestion with mild lymphocytic infiltrates peribronchially. The acute hepatic necrosis may have been associated with septicaemia due to compromised blood vessels following the uterine torsion. The presence of a single foetus could have resulted in foeto-maternal disproportion with resultant uterine torsion. Torsion of the ...
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on RCA ostial stenosis after re-do AVR. Coronary ostial stenosis after AVR is rare and occurs most often in the left main coronary artery, but the RCA can also be affected. An autopsy report revealed that thickened tissue in the aortic root and proximal coronary artery showed fibrosis and intimal thickening and no evidence of atherosclerosis on histological examination [1]. This phenomenon has been proposed to be due to turbulent flow around the prosthetic valve leading to obstruction of the coronary ostia. Fibrotic thickened tissue protrusion was also observed in our case, which was confirmed with homogeneous low echogenicity on IVUS.. Although the pathophysiological mechanism of coronary ostial stenosis after AVR is not well understood, various mechanisms could have mutually influenced this case according to previous studies. First, there could be micro-injury and local hyperplastic ...
Reports of gliomas presenting with signs and symptoms of leptomeningeal spread are rare.4 Although estimates of the incidence of leptomeningeal dissemination of gliomas in autopsy series vary, such tumor spread usually develops as a late complication in patients who have been previously treated.2 3 Our patient presented with clinical evidence of a disseminated CNS process involving multiple areas of the neuraxis. Because initial neuroimaging and angiographic studies showed evidence of acute infarctions and a diffuse vasculopathic process, a diagnosis of CNS vasculitis was entertained until subarachnoid glial tumor was demonstrated on open brain biopsy. At autopsy, a relatively small primary glioblastoma was identified in the right basal frontotemporal region, and widespread leptomeningeal metastasis was confirmed. This pattern of a small primary focus with extensive leptomeningeal spread corresponds to the type A pattern of malignant glioma described by Onda et al.1 The neuroimaging findings in ...

Autopsy of a FuneralAutopsy of a Funeral

If politics makes for strange bedfellows, perhaps photo opportunities at funerals make for something even stranger. As President Bush approached the supine body of John Paul II in St. Peters Basilica - hoping that some of the popes charisma would rub off - the close proximity of the two men was deeply disturbing. On one hand, there was the pope, a man who was faithful to the message of the Sermon on the Mount: Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Beside him stood the president, a man who had violated that teaching by launching an unprovoked war.. Out with the Ten Commandments, In with Regime Change. To make things worse, the president was the leader of a faux-religious pro-war gang that unilaterally had taken upon itself the mantle of an unrecognizably twisted version of Christianity. In so doing, it had violated six of the Ten Commandments in a very short time. In addition to substituting a nationalistic worship of the all-powerful state in place of the ...
