The autometallographical technique has been used to determine the distribution and cellular localization of mercury deposits in the Wistar rat CNS after exposure to elemental mercury vapor (50–550 μg Hg/m3 of air for 4–24 h). In animals exposed to 50 μg Hg/m3 for 8 h, silver-enhanced mercury grains were confined to the capillary walls. Increasing the(More)
A method for light and electron microscopic demonstration of mercury sulfides and mercury selenides in mammalian tissue is presented. Silver ions adhering to the surface of submicroscopic traces of mercury sulfides or selenides in the tissue are reduced to metallic silver by hydroquinone. Physical development thereupon renders deposits of mercury sulfides(More)
BACKGROUND In children with angulating deformities of the lower limbs, hemiepiphysiodesis can be used to guide growth to achieve better alignment at skeletal maturity. Traditionally, this has been performed with staples. The tension-band plating technique is new and it has been advocated because it is believed to reduce the risk of premature closure of the(More)
OBJECTIVES The goals were to study the association between neonatal jaundice and disorders of psychological development in a national, population-based cohort and to study whether gestational age, parity, and season of birth influenced that association. METHODS A population-based, follow-up study of all children born alive in Denmark between 1994 and 2004(More)
Adult male Wistar rats were exposed to mercury vapor, 50 micrograms Hg/m3, 6 hr/day, 5 days/week, over 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 6-, and 8-week periods. Sections from the spinal cord and dorsal root ganglia from spinal levels C1, C5, T6, and L1 were stained with the autometallographical technique and the distribution of mercury deposits described at light and(More)
In a prospective study lasting 6 months, all missed injuries in patients visiting the casualty department or admitted to the orthopaedic department of Aarhus Amtssygehus were registered and analysed. A total of 15,806 patients attended the casualty department and 783 patients were admitted to the orthopaedic department. Eighty-four injuries were missed in(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the skeletal effects of alimentary zinc depletion and supplementation in an animal model of intact, growing rats. The study was planned as a dose-response study. Thirty-six male Wistar rats, 4 weeks old, were divided into three groups of 12 rats each. The rats had free access to a semisynthetic diet with different(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Current techniques for epiphysiodesis involve opening of cortical windows; use of staples, screws, and tension devices; and fusion with curettes or drills. Complications may have serious consequences. There is a need for a more reliable, precise, and less traumatic procedure that overcomes the known complications from existing(More)
Autometallography was used to localize mercury in rat spinal cord after intraperitoneal administration of methylmercuric chloride (200 micrograms CH3HgCl daily). The technique permits small amounts of mercury sulfides and mercury selenides to be visualized by silver-enhancement. Mercury deposits were observed by light microscopy only in neurons. In all of(More)
During 1986, all sports injuries (n = 5222) were prospectively recorded at the two casualty departments in Arhus, Denmark. Volleyball injuries (n = 278) accounted for 5.3% of all sports injuries. An evaluation of the rehabilitation period and the consequences of the injuries was undertaken by questionnaire three years after the injury. The injury incidence(More)
