a b s t r a c t Canola meal is the second largest protein feed in the Northern latitudes and inclusion levels in dairy rations are expected to increase due to projected large increases in production of canola seed in Canada. However, a recent study (Swanepoel et al., 2014) showed that even though higher inclusions of canola meal (CM) had a positive effect on production when CM directly substituted for high protein corn based dried distillers grains (DDG), that there was an optimum point at 120–135 g/kg of diet dry matter (DM) after which animal performance seemed to decline. Only the amino acids (AA), methionine (Met), phenylalanine (Phe) and leucine (Leu) could have limited production based upon plasma AA concentrations at the highest CM inclusion level. Our objective was to determine if either Met or Phe, or both, was limiting performance of early lactation dairy cows fed a ration containing 180 g/kg of diet DM as CM, by supplementing a calculated target of 7.5 g of intestinally absorbable Phe/cow/day and/or 8.0 g of intestinally absorbable Met/cow/day in ruminally protected (RP) forms to four pens of ∼320 early lactation cows/pen in a 4 × 4 Latin square with 28 days experimental periods. Dry matter intake was not affected (avg.: 27.6 ± 0.4 kg/day) by feeding either of the RP AA, or the combination. Phenylalanine supplementation alone had no effect on milk production or composition, and body condition score (BCS) change compared to Control. Supplemental Met alone modestly increased (P

Spontaneous Rupture of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Mimicking ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction.

Thyrotoxicosis Mimicking ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction.
Hyperthyroidism is well known to be associated with cardiac disease. Delay in making the diagnosis and occurrence of complications are common and are associated with a worse outcome. A 54-year-old male, non-smoker, with no past medical history and no

Spontaneous intramedullary hematoma initially mimicking myocardial infarction.
Spontaneous intramedullary hematoma (IMH) is a rare condition. The initial clinical manifestations are variable. Early symptoms of high thoracic IMH include thoracocervical pain that can be mistaken for emergent cardiopulmonary conditions such as myo

Subarachnoid hemorrhage mimicking ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction after return of spontaneous circulation.
Electrocardiogram changes in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have been described as ST-T changes that mimic acute coronary syndrome and even acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Elevation of cardiac enzymes and abnormality of regional myoc

Spontaneous splenic artery aneurysm rupture: mimicking acute myocardial infarct.
Spontaneous splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is a rare but a life-threatening condition. Thus, early diagnoses may increase the chance of survival. A 52-year-old female patient was admitted to the emergency department with a pain that starts from the ch

Small Bowel Obstruction Mimicking Acute ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction.
We present a case of a 42-year-old female who presented to our institution with a small bowel obstruction and had emergent surgical decompression. Thirteen days postoperatively, the patient became tachycardic and had worsening epigastric pain. Electr

Subarachnoid haemorrhage mimicking transient ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
Patients often present to the emergency department with loss of consciousness. The differential diagnosis of such condition may be difficult because of limited clinical information. The authors present a case of subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) with in

Case report: Severe hypercalcemia mimicking ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
The identification of ST-segment elevation on the electrocardiogram is an integral part of decision making in patients who present with suspected ischemia. Unfortunately, ST-segment elevation is nonspecific and may be caused by noncardiac causes such

Spontaneous Rupture of Renal Metastasis from Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
We report a rare life-threatening case of spontaneous rupture of renal metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that was managed by emergent transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE). A 76-year-old woman diagnosed with HCC presented with acute

Spontaneous rupture of multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma: case report.
Hemoperitoneum due to nontraumatic liver rupture is rare. The most common cause of nontraumatic rupture of the liver is hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The other causes of nontraumatic liver ruptures are peliosis hepatis, polyarteritis nodosa, system
