A patient with severe maxillofacial trauma had a nasogastric tube inserted into the intracranial cavity. Two such case reports were found in the literature and in both instances the patients expired. The present patient is believed to be the first who survived intracranial passage of a nasogastric tube.
A case is presented in which a patient who had suffered severe facial fractures erroneously had a nasogastric tube placed in the intracranial cavity. It is believed that no such complication of nasogastric intubation has been reported previously.
Quantitative measurements of the epidural space between T-7 and L-4 were made in the sagittal and coronal planes utilizing x-ray films made after the injection of iodized oil into the epidural space in the low thoracic and upper lumbar areas. These data reveal a 1-mm ventral epidural space and a 2-mm lateral epidural space, with a sawtooth shape to the… (More)
Over the last 4 years, the authors have had experience with epidural analgesia for a variety of spinal operations in 24 patients. It has proved to be safe, reliable, and effective. No patient has had a new neurological deficit as a result of the epidural technique, and 18 of 22 patients with neurological deficit improved. Thus, epidural analgesia should not… (More)
Corneal surface laser ablation procedures for the correction of refractive error have enjoyed a resurgence of interest, especially in patients with a possible increased risk of complications after lamellar surgery. Improvements in the understanding of corneal biomechanical changes, the modulation of wound healing, laser technology including ablation… (More)
AIMS To evaluate the efficacy of 50% autologous serum drops against conventional treatment in ocular surface disorders refractory to normal treatments in a prospective randomised crossover trial. METHOD Patients fulfilling ophthalmological and haematological entry criteria were randomised to either 3 months of autologous serum 50% followed by 3 months of… (More)
A case is presented in which fracture of the right anterior superior iliac spine occurred 2 weeks after the right iliac crest had been used as the donor site for a two-level anterior disectomy and fusion.
Digital techniques are becoming well established as costeffective for vascular imaging in neuroradiology [1, 2]. Pediatric application of this technology is also under development . Futhermore, there has been increasing use of more efficient, less invasive methods of evaluating pediatric spine problems through newer-generation computed tomography (CT),… (More)
This study of 20 patients undergoing elective cataract surgery was performed to investigate the change in intraocular pressure that accompanies extraconal peribulbar anaesthesia. We have demonstrated that each injection during peribulbar anaesthesia causes a small rise in intraocular pressure. The routine use of conventional external ocular compression… (More)
Six Medtronic 1743 dual-channel cerebellar stimulators were implanted in 4 patients between September 1977 and January 1979. Evaluations were conducted in both a blind and nonblind fashion. Significant differences between the evaluations occurred. The operating surgeon, physical therapists, referring neurologist and the patients' families all overestimated… (More)
