Altered renal hemodynamics and impaired myogenic responses in the fawn-hooded rat. (1/617)

The present study examined whether an abnormality in the myogenic response of renal arterioles that impairs autoregulation of renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular capillary pressure (PGC) contributes to the development of renal damage in fawn-hooded hypertensive (FHH) rats. Autoregulation of whole kidney, cortical, and medullary blood flow and PGC were compared in young (12 wk old) FHH and fawn-hooded low blood pressure (FHL) rats in volume-replete and volume-expanded conditions. Baseline RBF, cortical and medullary blood flow, and PGC were significantly greater in FHH than in FHL rats. Autoregulation of renal and cortical blood flow was significantly impaired in FHH rats compared with results obtained in FHL rats. Myogenically mediated autoregulation of PGC was significantly greater in FHL than in FHH rats. PGC rose from 46 +/- 1 to 71 +/- 2 mmHg in response to an increase in renal perfusion pressure from 100 to 150 mmHg in FHH rats, whereas it only increased from 39 +/- 2 to 53 +/- 1 mmHg in FHL rats. Isolated perfused renal interlobular arteries from FHL rats constricted by 10% in response to elevations in transmural pressure from 70 to 120 mmHg. In contrast, the diameter of vessels from FHH rats increased by 15%. These results indicate that the myogenic response of small renal arteries is altered in FHH rats, and this contributes to an impaired autoregulation of renal blood flow and elevations in PGC in this strain.  (+info)

Resetting of exaggerated tubuloglomerular feedback activity in acutely volume-expanded young SHR. (2/617)

One purpose of the present study was to evaluate the ability of 7-wk-old spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) to reset tubuloglomerular feedback (TGF) activity in response to acute volume expansion (VE). Second, we evaluated the contribution of ANG II, via its action on AT1 receptors, to TGF control of glomerular function during VE. TGF was assessed by micropuncture methods and proximal tubular stop-flow pressure (SFP) determinations in SHR, Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY), and Sprague-Dawley rats (SD). During euvolemia SHR exhibited enhanced TGF activity. In the same animals acute VE was achieved by infusion of saline (5 ml. h-1. 100 g body wt-1). VE led to resetting of TGF in all three strains. Maximal SFP responses, elicited by a 30-40 nl/min loop of Henle perfusion rate, decreased from 19 to 12 mmHg in SHR and, on average, from 11 to 5 mmHg in WKY and SD (P < 0.001). Tubular flow rate producing a half-maximal response (turning point) shifted to higher flow rates during VE, from 12 to 14 nl/min in SHR and from 15 to 19 nl/min in WKY. Administration of the AT1 receptor blocker candesartan (0.05 mg/kg iv) during sustained VE decreased TGF-mediated reductions in SFP in SHR and slightly increased the turning point in WKY. Nevertheless, other parameters of TGF activity were unaffected by AT1 receptor blockade. In conclusion, young SHR possess the ability to reset TGF activity in response to VE to a degree similar to compensatory adjustments in WKY. However, TGF remains enhanced in SHR during VE. ANG II and its action on AT1 receptors are in part responsible for the exaggerated SFP responses in young SHR during VE.  (+info)

Primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty performed for acute myocardial infarction in a patient with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. (3/617)

A 72-year-old female with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) complained of severe chest pain. Electrocardiography showed ST-segment depression and negative T wave in I, aVL and V4-6. Following a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), urgent coronary angiography revealed 99% organic stenosis with delayed flow in the proximal segment and 50% in the middle segment of the left anterior descending artery (LAD). Subsequently, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for the stenosis in the proximal LAD was performed. In the coronary care unit, her blood pressure dropped. Hematomas around the puncture sites were observed and the platelet count was 28,000/mm3. After transfusion, electrocardiography revealed ST-segment elevation in I, aVL and V1-6. Urgent recatheterization disclosed total occlusion in the middle segment of the LAD. Subsequently, PTCA was performed successfully. Then, intravenous immunoglobulin increased the platelet count and the bleeding tendency disappeared. A case of AMI with ITP is rare. The present case suggests that primary PTCA can be a useful therapeutic strategy, but careful attention must be paid to hemostasis and to managing the platelet count.  (+info)

Body piercing medical concerns with cutting-edge fashion. (4/617)

OBJECTIVE: To review the current information on medical complications, psychological implications, and legislative issues related to body piercing, a largely unregulated industry in the United States. METHODS: We conducted a MEDLINE search of English language articles from 1966 until May 1998 using the search terms "body piercing" and "ear piercing." Bibliographies of these references were reviewed for additional citations. We also conducted an Internet search for "body piercing" on the World Wide Web. MAIN RESULTS: In this manuscript, we review the available body piercing literature. We conclude that body piercing is an increasingly common practice in the United States, that this practice carries substantial risk of morbidity, and that most body piercing in the United States is being performed by unlicensed, unregulated individuals. Primary care physicians are seeing growing numbers of patients with body pierces. Practitioners must be able to recognize, treat, and counsel patients on body piercing complications and be alert to associated psychological conditions in patients who undergo body piercing.  (+info)

Cecal ligation and puncture peritonitis model shows decreased nicotinic acetylcholine receptor numbers in rat muscle: immunopathologic mechanisms? (5/617)

BACKGROUND: Although systemic inflammation is believed to cause upregulation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAchRs) in muscle, chronic infections such as Chagas' disease occasionally are complicated by myasthenia gravis. The authors investigated how a nonlethal cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) peritonitis model in rats could affect muscle nAchR. METHODS: On day 1, 4, 7, 14, or 21 after CLP or sham operation, nAchR binding was assayed in the anterior tibial muscle and diaphragm using [125I]alpha-bungarotoxin. The presence or absence of weakness, in vivo dose-response relationships for d-tubocurarine, and serum anti-nAchR antibody titers were assayed in separate experiments. RESULTS: Systemic inflammation was most severe during the first 4 to 5 days. Numbers of nAchRs were decreased in anterior tibial muscle on days 7, 14, and 21 after CLP, and in the diaphragm on days 7 and 14 (P < 0.01). Both 50% and 90% blocking doses of d-tubocurarine) were lower in CLP rats than in sham-operated rats on days 7, 14, and 21 (P < .05). Weakness was overt in approximately half of CLP rats at these times. Serum anti-nAchR antibody (0.7-1.4 nM) was detectable beginning on day 4 and continuing throughout the 21-day observation period in 58-67% of CLP rats. CONCLUSIONS: During the recovery phase of injury, nonlethal CLP peritonitis resulted in downregulation of nAchR. However, further study is needed to determine the role of anti-nAchR antibodies in the development of decreased receptor numbers and impaired neuromuscular function.  (+info)

Is gut the major source of proinflammatory cytokine release during polymicrobial sepsis? (6/617)

Although studies have shown that the gut is capable of being a cytokine-producing organ and that the proinflammatory cytokines TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 are upregulated following the onset of sepsis, it remains unknown whether the gut is indeed the major source of the increased cytokine production under such conditions. To determine this, male rats were subjected to cecal ligation and puncture (CLP, a model of polymicrobial sepsis) or sham operation followed by the administration of normal saline solution subcutaneously (i.e., fluid resuscitation). Systemic and portal blood samples were taken simultaneously at 2, 5, 10, or 20 h after CLP or sham operation. Plasma levels of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 were determined using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. In additional animals, the small intestine was harvested at 10 h after CLP or sham operation and examined for TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 gene expression by RT-PCR. The results indicate that the levels of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 in both systemic and portal blood samples were significantly elevated during sepsis with the exception that the increase in IL-1beta was not significant at 2 h after CLP. However, there were no significant differences in the levels of those proinflammatory cytokines between systemic and portal blood at any points after the onset of sepsis. Moreover, there were no significant alterations in the proinflammatory cytokine gene expression in the small intestine at 10 h after CLP. Since the levels of TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 were not significantly increased in portal blood as compared to systemic blood and since there was no upregulation of gene expression for these cytokines, it appears that organs other than the gut are responsible for the upregulated proinflammatory cytokines during polymicrobial sepsis.  (+info)

Eukaliuric diuresis and natriuresis in response to the KATP channel blocker U37883A: micropuncture studies on the tubular site of action. (7/617)

1. Systemic application of U37883A, a blocker of ATP sensitive potassium (KATP) channels, elicits diuresis and natriuresis without significantly altering urinary potassium excretion. 2. To elucidate tubular sites of action upstream to the distal nephron, micropuncture experiments were performed in nephrons with superficial glomeruli of anaesthetized Munich-Wistar-Fromter rats during systemic application of U37883A (1, 5 or 15 mg kg-1 i.v.). 3. The observed eukaliuric diuresis and natriuresis in response to U37883A at 15 mg kg-1 was accompanied by an increase in early distal tubular flow rate (VED) from 10 - 18 nl min(-1) reflecting a reduction in fractional reabsorption of fluid up to this site (FR-fluid) of 13%. The latter proposed an effect on water-permeable segments such as the proximal tubule which could fully account for the observed reduction in fractional reabsorption of Na+ up to the early distal tubule (FR-Na+) of 8% and the increase in early distal tubular Na+ concentration ([Na+]ED) from 35 - 51 mM whereas [K+]ED was left unaltered. 4. In comparison, furosemide (3 mg kg-1 i.v.), which acts in the water-impermeable thick ascending limb, elicited diuresis, natriuresis and kaliuresis which were associated with a fall in FR-Na+ of 10% with no change in FR-fluid, and a rise in [Na+]ED from 42 - 117 mM and [K+]ED from 1.2 - 5.7 mM with no change in VED. 5. Direct late proximal tubular fluid collections confirmed a significant inhibition of fluid reabsorption in proximal convoluted tubule in response to systemic application of U37883A. 6. These findings suggest that the diuretic and natriuretic effect upstream to the distal tubule in response to systemic application of U37883A involves actions on water-permeable segments such as the proximal convoluted tubule.  (+info)

Neurointerventional experience with an arteriotomy suture device. (8/617)

We describe our experience with an arteriotomy closure device that has become a routine tool for the management of most patients in our neurointerventional service. In our experience, this device contributes significantly to patient comfort by allowing mobilization within 2 hours of a procedure, even with anticoagulants. Efficacy and safety of this suture device requires proctoring during initial experience.  (+info)

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after femoral arterial access is a rare complication of left heart catheterization (LHC). The reasons for paradoxical venous clot formation after arterial access are identifiable in some cases but less clear in others. Here, we present one case of provoked DVT after femoral access followed by a second case in which clot formation appears to be spontaneous. Additionally, though each of the patients presented here demonstrated thrombus resolution, only one received anticoagulation. These cases highlight the complex pathophysiology of DVT following femoral arterial access and the challenges of management strategy selection.
A system for sealing a percutaneous puncture in a blood vessel in a living being and method of use thereof. The system includes a hemostatic closure, a blood vessel locator device for determining the position of the blood vessel via the percutaneous puncture, and a deployment instrument for deploying the closure within the puncture to seal the puncture. The vessel locator includes means for enabling blood from the vessel to flow therethrough so that the position of the vessel can be rapidly determined. Once the vessel has been located the deployment instrument, which includes a tubular carrier storing the closure, is extended into the puncture to deploy the closure. The closure basically comprises a radiopaque rigid anchor for location within the blood vessel, a compressed collagen plug for location within the puncture tract leading to the vessel, and a thin filament connecting the two in a pulley-like arrangement. The deployment instrument also includes a tamper which is used to mechanically deform the
Innate immunity is the first line of defense in human beings against pathogen infection; monocytes/macrophages are the primary cells of the innate immune system. Recently, macrophages/monocytes have been discovered to participate in LPS clearance, and the clearance efficiency determines the magnitude of the inflammatory response and subsequent organ injury. Previously, we reported that artesunate (AS) protected sepsis mice against heat-killed E. coli challenge. Herein, we further confirmed that AS protected cecal ligation/puncture (CLP) sepsis mice. Its protection on sepsis mice was related to not only reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines and serum LPS levels but also improvement of liver function. Based on the fact that AS did not directly bind and neutralize LPS, we hypothesized that the reduction of serum LPS level might be related to enhancement of LPS internalization and subsequent detoxification. Our results showed that AS increased FITC-LPS internalization by peritoneal macrophage and liver
analysis. It is a common procedure in the hospital to allow assessment of pulmonary gas exchange. Compared with vein puncture, arterial puncture is more difficult, requires deeper needle insertion and is more painful for the patient. Cryoanalgesia would offer a noninvasive, nonpharmacologic, inexpensive and readily available tool to reduce pain associated with arterial puncture. This study sought to determine whether cryoanalgesia in the form of ice application could be an effective analgesic when applied before arterial puncture. Methodology:This was a prospective study with a convenience sample of intensive care unit patients on oxygen therapy with a physician order for an ABG test. The intervention group had a plastic bag of ice applied to their wrists for 3 min before drawing an ABG sample from the radial artery. The control group had an ABG sample drawn from the radial artery without the application of ice. Pain from the arterial puncture was measured with a pain rating scale. Results: ...
Aftercare. Maintain pressure over the arterial puncture site for several minutes. This action can be delegated to an assistant, while the person who performed the procedure disposes of the sharps, labels the specimen, and organises for it to be analysed.. Check the patient several minutes after the procedure to make sure that the perfusion of the extremity is adequate and the arterial puncture site is not haemorrhaging or forming a haematoma.. Send the sample for analysis immediately, labelling and documenting the inspired oxygen concentration clearly.. Normal values for arterial blood vary slightly in each laboratory and machine, and these values should be cross-referenced when interpreting the results of arterial blood gas analysis. Some blood gas analysers also need the patients temperature.. An unexpected or very abnormal result may indicate serious pathology or indicate that a venous sample was taken. ...

Perform venipunctures carefully and only as required. Fatal cases of hemorrhage associated with traumatic intubation in patients administered Activase have been reported. Aspirin and heparin have been administered concomitantly with and following infusion with Activase in the management of acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary embolism. The concomitant administration of heparin and aspirin with and following infusions of Activase for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke during the first 24 hours after symptom onset has not been investigated. Because heparin, aspirin, or Activase may cause bleeding complications, carefully monitor for bleeding, especially at arterial puncture sites. Hemorrhage can occur 1 or more days after administration of Activase, while patients are still receiving anticoagulant ...
Minimize the need for (repeated) arterial punctures. Arterial blood gas analysis is an important tool in assessing patient status, and in departments of pulmonary medicine. Arterial blood is typically sampled via arterial puncture. These patients, such as COPD patients, often experience repeated arterial punctures needed for, e.g. adjustment of oxygen therapy and non-invasive ventilation (NIV).. Using v-TACTM, the need for arterial punctures can be minimize or even obviated.. In situations where the patient already has a venous line (such as a vacutainer holder w/needle or butterfly), this access can be used to draw venous blood for blood gas testing, and combined with the corresponding SpO2 measurement, v-TACTM software can calculate the arterial acid-base and blood gas values.. The benefits include:. ...

I keep getting punctures with road bike tires riding the street in Baltimore. I know they are not the cleanest but I should not be getting a flat every single time. Using Continental Gator Skin and Continental 28mm tubes on my Trek hybrid, which I converted to dropbars to make as many improvements without blowing the bank on a road bike.. I typically keep the PSI around 80-90. These are new tubes and tires as I thought the first flat was related to having tubes and tires that hadnt been replaced in 5 years. However, that was not the issue. I was able to identify one cause being a 3-4mm glass shard that punctured the tire and tube. This most recent puncture shows no sign of puncture on the tire for a very tiny circular puncture on the tube.. Can anyone suggest a couple reasons why I would be consistently getting flats other than road conditions?. Should I consider getting some commuter tires instead?. ...
A method of closing a puncture in a blood vessel wall, including: positioning a suture placement device in a tissue tract and into a puncture in the blood vessel wall, the placement device having a length of suture with a first end, a second end and a bight between the first and second ends with the bight being prearranged on the device to define a pre-tied knot when the first end of the suture passes through the bight; advancing the first end of the length of suture in a distal direction from the device through a first penetration in the blood vessel wall adjacent to the puncture; guiding the suture length from the first penetration across a proximal side of the puncture to a second penetration adjacent to the puncture opposite the first penetration; and advancing the suture length in a proximal direction through the second penetration, through the device, and through the bight so that the two ends of the suture length are accessible external to the tissue tract for securing the suture across the

The puncture closure for closing a blood vessel with a puncture, in particular an artery, a vein short circuited with an artery, a shunt or a prosthesis, etc. has a pressure chamber in which an overpressure may be created, provided with an opening for receiving a pressure medium and fastenable to the body in the area of the puncture. The part of the pressure chamber that faces the body is extensible. In order to create a puncture closure that reliably closes the puncture of a blood vessel without too much blood loss, without forming significant hematomas nor completely collapsing the blood vessel, the opening for receiving the pressure medium is located above a piercing channel of the puncture hole and the blood that flows out of the blood vessel is used as a pressure medium.
A depth and puncture control system for a blood vessel hemostasis system includes a blood vessel puncture control tip which, when positioned in the lumen of a blood vessel, can inhibit the flow of blood out of the puncture site. When used together with a pledget delivery cannula and a pledget pusher, the control tip and the delivery catheter can both inhibit blood loss out the puncture site and inhibit the introduction of pledget material and tissue fragments into the blood vessel. The system also includes a handle which releasably connects together the control tip, pusher, and delivery cannula to permit limited longitudinal motion between the control tip and the delivery cannula, and between the pusher and the delivery cannula.

Since many of the patients in an intensive care unit suffer from disorders of hemostasis, bleeding is a main concern applying central venous catheters. Even if there are some data indicating elevated international normalized ratio may not increase the risk of bleeding no clear cut-off has been defined so far. An INR , 1.5 is generally considered to increase the risk of bleeding. Furthermore, many authors consider platelets below 50 x 109 /l as a contra-indication to CVC cannulation, since there are some data this may increase the risk of bleeding. Therefore platelet transfusion before venous puncture is suggested. In our clinical experience INR , 1.5 and platelets , 50 x 109 /l do not correlate with increased risk of bleeding. The aim of this study is to demonstrate, that coagulopathy, defined by INR and platelet count, is not decisive for bleeding ...
Tyres - Use tyres that give you that little bit of extra grip. Yes Im afraid you may lose some of that top speed or range on an ebike, and it may also feel harder to ride, but ultimately anything you can do to help improve your bikes grip is surely a good thing? You can also try reducing tyre pressure by a few lbs to improve grip. Remember wet leaves, mud and puddles could be just around the corner! You may want to think about fitting puncture resistant tyres as well, these are great for reducing the risk of punctures with the increased debris found on roads during the winter months.. ...
Currently the most popular method to evolve black-hole binaries is the moving puncture method. It has recently been shown that when puncture initial data for a Schwarzschild black hole are evolved using this method, the numerical slices quickly lose contact with the second asymptotically flat end, and end instead on a cylinder of finite Schwarzschild coordinate radius. These slices are stationary, meaning that their geometry does not evolve further. We will describe these results in the context of maximal slices, and present time-independent puncture-like data for the Schwarzschild spacetime.. ...

A cholesterol test is a blood test, usually done in the morning since youll need to fast for the most accurate results. Blood is drawn from a vein, usually from your arm.. Before the needle is inserted, the puncture site is cleaned with antiseptic and an elastic band is wrapped around your upper arm. This causes the veins in your arm to fill with blood.. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood is collected into a vial or syringe. The band is then removed to restore circulation, and blood continues to flow into the vial. Once enough blood is collected, the needle is removed and the puncture site is covered with a bandage.. The procedure will likely take a couple of minutes. Its relatively painless.. ...

Others have already suggested some likely explanations, which I agree with. If youre not already doing this, I suggest that you line up the labels on your tires with your valve stems. Aside from looking more pro, this has a real benefit: when you find the punctured spot in the tube, you can map that back to the tire. This is important, because a tiny shard of glass can get lodged in your tire and cause repeated flats. Finding these even when you know where to look is hard enough.. When you get a flat, remove the tube and find the puncture by airing it up a little. You can usually get pretty close by listening for the leak, and I find it helpful to hold the tube close to my lips, which are more sensitive, to find the exact spot. (This is also helpful for diagnosing flats caused by protruding spokes on the inside. If you have the luxury of doing this at home, you can also roll the tube through a bowl of water to look for bubbles.) Mark that spot and hold the tube up to the wheel, aligning the ...

TRAVERSE-LA is the first randomized comparison of an RF versus conventional needle for transseptal puncture. The RF needle significantly reduced time to transseptal LA access, resulted in less failure of the assigned needle, and produced fewer visible plastic shavings from introduction of the needle through the dilator and sheath. Procedural complications did not differ between needle groups.. Transseptal puncture for LA access is becoming more common because of the growing adaptation of catheter ablation and structural heart procedures involving left-sided access.1-7 However, the transseptal puncture procedure can be time consuming13-14 and can result in important complications.15-16 Prolonged transseptal procedures may increase total procedure times and ionizing radiation exposure to the patient and operator because of the high-intensity fluoroscopy that is often employed. Finally, personnel and electrophysiology laboratory time may become both clinically and financially relevant at the ...

BACKGROUND: Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) is a potentially life-saving but high-risk emergency procedure in patients with haemorrhagic shock. Lack of physicians with competence in the procedure is a barrier to implementation of REBOA. It is currently unclear how training and assessment of competence should be done.. OBJECTIVES: To report and evaluate research in training and assessment of competence in REBOA and femoral arterial access with the aim to investigate the effect of simulation-based training in the procedure and to provide suggestions for the future design of training programs and assessment tools.. METHODS: Following PRISMA guidelines, PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for studies on training or assessment of competence in REBOA and femoral arterial access. Bias assessment was done using the Medical Education Research Study Quality Instrument. Evidence level was assessed using GRADE.. RESULTS: Sixteen studies were ...

If you need intravenous fluids or medicine directly into the vein, a needle attached to an intravenous (IV) catheter is inserted into the vein. There may be a slight amount of redness and swelling at the puncture site. The vein may become irritated. This irritation is called superficial phlebitis. After a vein is irritated, it may feel hard or stiff for up to 7 days. This is not a symptom of infection. Redness and warm skin moving along the vein from the puncture site towards the trunk of the body is more serious. If you have this symptom, call your doctor. Removing the catheter when the vein becomes irritated usually relieves the symptoms. IV sites usually heal without any problems and do not need further care. ...

That we found a statistically significant difference between arterial and venous sampler filling times and a statistically significant relationship between MAP and filling times was not surprising, and we believe the difference between arterial and venous sampler filling times to be clinically important. Our results are consistent with a previous laboratory study, although our times differed from theirs.4 Our arterial group had a normal estimated MAP of 91 mm Hg and a mean filling time of 15 s/mL, whereas Johnson et al created a normal group using a simulation with a MAP of 93 mm Hg and measured a filling time of 16 s for a 2 mL sample. When filling time is converted to s/mL, the filling time equals 8 s/mL for the laboratory study, which is nearly twice as fast as our human group. This difference illustrates the importance of performing this study using human subjects. Some reasons for this difference may include various differences between human subjects and a laboratory simulation, such as ...

Internal Arteriovenous (AV) fistulae have gradually replaced external shunts for maintenance dialysis in recent years. The internal AV fistulae are generally superior to the external shunts. One of their few undesirable side effects, however, is prolonged bleeding from the puncture sites at the end of dialysis. This usually requires lengthy compression of bleeding sites, which is not only time consuming but also damaging to the vascular access.. During the past 4 months I have conducted several double-blind studies to investigate the efficacy of topical thrombin in the control of bleeding from the puncture sites in dialysis patients. I present ...
For a heel stick blood sample, several drops of blood are collected from the heel of your baby. The skin of the heel is first cleaned with alcohol and then punctured with a small sterile lancet. Several drops of blood are collected in a small tube. When enough blood has been collected, a gauze pad or cotton ball is placed over the puncture site. Pressure is maintained on the puncture site briefly, and then a small bandage is usually applied.. A heel stick must be done carefully to prevent contamination of the sample from lead on the skin. If a heel stick blood sample comes back positive for lead, a sample of blood from your babys vein will be tested to confirm the results.. ...
