4 Couldwell, William T.Intracranial hypotension in the setting of concurrent perineural cyst rupture and subarachnoid hemorrhageAlthough most patients with intracranial hypotension typically present with headaches, the rest of the clinical spectrum is characteristically non-specific and often quite variable. In a patient with concurrent pathologies that can produce a similar clinical picture, a high index of suspicion must b...2013-01-01
5 Dwight, Zachary LawrenceHeterozygote PCR product melting curve predictionMelting curve prediction of PCR products is limited to perfectly complementary strands. Multiple domains are calculated by recursive nearest-neighbor thermodynamics. However, the melting curve of an amplicon containing a heterozygous single nucleotide variant (SNV) after PCR is the composite of four...2014-01-01
6 Griffiths, Marie M.; Sawitzke, Allen D.; Cannon, Grant W.Exacerbation of collagen-induced arthritis in rats by rat cytomegalovirus is antigen-specific.Collagen-Induced Arthritis (CIA) is an experimentally induced and genetically controlled animal model of chronic joint inflammation.

8 Capecchi, Mario R.Removing the vertebrate-specific TBP N terminus disrupts placental beta2m-dependent interactions with the maternal immune systemMammalian TBP consists of a 180 amino acid core that is common to all eukaryotes, fused to a vertebrate-specific N-terminal domain. We generated mice having a modified tbp allele, tbp(DeltaN), that produces a version of TBP lacking 111 of the 135 vertebrate-specific amino acids. Most tbp(DeltaN/Delt...Alleles; Animals, Genetically Modified; Binding Sites; Embryonic and Fetal Development; Evolution, Molecular; Female; Fetus; Immune Tolerance; Male; Mice; Mutation; ATA-Box Binding Protein2002-07-12
9 Drews, FrankNegative priming and stimulus repetition: a reply to Neill and JoordensNegative priming is reliably obtained with repeated items, but not with novel items. Here, we review why these stimulus repetition effects raise problems for memory based theories of negative priming. Furthermore, we provide empirical evidence casting doubt on Neill and Joordens's (2002) claimthat...Negative priming; Stimuli; Perception2002
10 Couldwell, William T.Thrombosed basilar apex aneurysm presenting as a third ventricular mass and hydrocephalusAneurysms presenting as third ventricular masses are uncommon; most are giant aneurysms arising from the basilar apex. We present a case of a thrombosed basilar apex aneurysm presenting as a third ventricular mass and hydrocephalus in a 55-year-old man. The case is unique in the literature as the an...Basilar apex aneurysm; Ventricular mass; Third ventriculostomy2005
11 Couldwell, William T.Petroclival meningiomas: surgical experience in 109 casesThe surgical removal of petroclival meningiomas has historically been associated with a high incidence of morbidity and mortality.

12 Poulter, Charles Dale; Davis, Darrell R.15N labeled e. coli tRNAMet, tRNAGlu, tRNATyr, and tRNAPhe. Double resonance and two dimensional NMR of H-N1 units in pseudouridineThe N1 imino units in Escherichia coli tRNAfMet, tRNAGlu, tRNAPhe, and tRNATyr were studied by 1H-15N NMR using three different techniques to suppress signals of protons not attached to 15N. Two of the procedures, Fourier internuclear difference spectroscopy and two-dimensional forbidden echo spectr...Escherichia coli; Magnetic resonance spectroscopy; Nucleic acid conformation1985-08-15
13 Couldwell, William T.Pituitary gland metastasis from adenocarcinoma of the prostateA case of prostatic carcinoma metastasis to the pituitary gland is reported. The presentation and rarity of such a lesion is addressed. The literature review yielded only isolated case reports of symptomatic brain metastases unassociated with bone disease from adenocarcinoma of the prostate. The man...Prostate; Pituitary gland; Adenocarcinoma; Metastasis; Transsphenoidal surgery1989
14 Kriesel, John D.Miliary Tuberculosis and the postpartum stateIn 1985, a resurgence of tuberculosis began in the United States. In conjunction with this resurgence, there has been an increase in the number of atypical presentations of the disease. We recently treated a patient who had disseminated tuberculosis that became manifest in the postpartum state. Wher...Miliary tuberculosis; Postpartum1995
15 Couldwell, William T.Hearing restoration after resection of an intracanalicular vestibular schwannoma: a role for emergency surgery?Patients with vestibular schwannomas (VSs) most commonly present with sensorineural hearing loss, which is often insidious or gradual. Up to 26% of patients may present with sudden hearing loss, however, which poses an important surgical challenge. Sudden hearing loss has been attributed to spasm or...Vestibular schwannoma; Hearing preservation2002
16 Olson, Randall J.Comparison of the effects of viscoelastic agents on clinical properties of the Unfolder lens injection systemPURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of 7 viscoelastic materials on the physical properties of the Unfolder lens injection system. SETTING: John A. Moran Eye Center, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

21 Kestle, John R. W.Sporadic osteochondroma of the cervical spineOsteochondroma is the most common benign tumor of bone, but axial skeleton involvement is uncommon and usually indicates a hereditary cause such as osteochondromatosis (hereditary multiple exostosis). 1 Approximately 7% of hereditary osteochondromas occur along the vertebral column, which is double...2006
22 Schmidt, Meic H.Thoracoscopic spine surgery for decompression and stabilization of the anterolateral thoracolumbar spineThe anterior thoracolumbar spine can be exposed via a variety of approaches. Historically, open anterolateral or posterolateral approaches have been used to gain access to the anterior thoracolumbar spinal column.

23 Capecchi, Mario R.Paralogous mouse Hox genes, Hoxa9, Hoxb9, and Hoxd9, function together to control development of the mammary gland in response to pregnancy.Although the role of Hox genes in patterning the mammalian body plan has been studied extensively during embryonic and fetal development, relatively little is known concerning Hox gene function in adult animals. Analysis of mice with mutant Hoxa9, Hoxb9, and Hoxd9 genes shows that these paralogous g...Embryonic and Fetal Development; Gene Expression Regulation, Developmental; Genotype; Mice, Knockout1999-01
