OBJECTIVE To determine the frequency and physiologic consequences of the face-straight-down (FSD) position, a postulated mechanism for the sudden infant death syndrome in prone-sleeping infants. STUDY DESIGN A survey of 151 infants, aged 1 to 7 months, in Montreal showed that 33% slept prone. Ten healthy prone-sleeping infants were studied in their homes(More)
Idiopathic orbital inflammation or orbital pseudotumor with intracranial extension is a rare condition. It consists of a nonspecific infiltrate of the fatty tissue of the orbit that extends through one or more foramina into the adjacent intracranial tissue. The lesion mimics an infectious or neoplastic lesion. The authors present a case involving the(More)
BACKGROUND We studied the incidence and clinical characteristics of persistent diplopia related to anaesthesia for cataract surgery in a general hospital. METHODS This was a retrospective review of anaesthesia for 3587 cataract surgeries. Of all the cases of diplopia referred to the ocular motility clinic after cataract surgery, those involving(More)
A newborn infant who suffered intra-uterine anoxia is described, whose mother inhaled butane gas accidentally during the sixth month of pregnancy. The infant was born at 39 weeks. Ultrasonography and neuroradiological studies (CT scan and angiography) showed an almost complete absence of both cerebral hemispheres. The thalamus, brainstem and cerebellum were(More)
This paper presents a new approach to represent the glucose and insulin levels on patients with diabetes type 1 based on the well-known minimal model. In this work a new mathematical model is proposed which attempts modeling properly the malfunction of the pancreas. The model takes into account both: the description of the glucose level in the subcutaneous(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the efficacy and safety of 5 mg and 10 mg mifepristone for emergency contraception up to 144 hours after unprotected coitus. METHODS This double-blind randomized clinical trial was carried out at Eusebio Hernandez Hospital (Havana, Cuba). A total of 2,418 women who requested emergency contraception after unprotected coitus received(More)
We report a case of gamma knife pallidotomy resulting in a permanent contralateral homonymous hemianopsia and transient contralateral hemiparesis with some improvement in contralateral parkinsonian symptoms. This case illustrates the risk of gamma knife pallidotomy which precludes physiologic target localization and can subject structures surrounding the(More)
