Rf is a new mu-receptor opioid agonist, acting through the activation of pain inhibitory mechanisms. We conducted a prospective trial on the analgesic effects of Rf in 20 children less than 1 year of age(More)

The Authors report on their experience with 36 cases of traumatic lesions of the diaphragm. Such lesions should be suspected in all cases of thoraco-abdominal trauma. The possibility of a preoperative diagnosis depends entirely on thorough chest x-rays and administration of contrast medium via a nasogastric tube. In emergency surgery, lesions of the(More)
