A case of an anterior interosseous nerve palsy associated with a Monteggia fracture-dislocation is presented. The fracture of the ulna was reduced and stabilized with a plate, and the proximal radioulnar dislocation was also reduced. The nerve recovery was spontaneous and complete. A satisfactory result was obtained, without pain or functional sequelae.

Females receiving estradiol benzoate (EB) at the age of 5 days had greater body weight than… (More)
The effect of discrete lesions of the Anterior Medial Preoptic Area of the Hypothalamus (MPOA) in the control of pituitary gonadotropins in the adult male Wistar rat has been studied. Electrolytic lesions were made by passing an anodal current through tungsten electrodes. Electrodes were oriented stereotaxically into the MPOA and lesion placement was… (More)
