OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of presurgical nasoalveolar molding therapy in the treatment of patients with bilateral cleft lip and palate. DESIGN A prospective study with blinded measurements. SETTING The Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic at the University of Texas at Houston Medical School, Houston, Texas. PATIENTS Eight patients with bilateral(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term effectiveness of presurgical nasoalveolar molding (PNAM) in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP). METHODS Twenty-five patients with UCLP treated by either PNAM or non-PNAM therapy between 1998 and 2003 were recruited in the study. During the clinical examination and data(More)
Differential growth of the epithelial diaphragm is needed for the formation of multiple roots in the primary and permanent dentitions. In most instances, the mandibular premolars possess a single root. It is a very unusual event to find a case of bilateral multi-rooted first and second mandibular premolars. This paper presents such a case.
We have observed V751Cyg with the ROSAT HRI in a target-of-opportunity mode during its recent optical low state and clearly detect it at a count rate of 0.015 cts/s. The X-ray intensity is a factor of 7–19 (depending on the exact X-ray spectral shape) higher than the upper limit obtained with the ROSAT PSPC during the optical high state, thus suggesting an(More)
Colour polymorphism is a recurrent feature of natural populations, and its maintenance has been studied in a range of taxa in their native ranges. However, less is known about whether (and how) colour polymorphism is maintained when populations are removed from their native environments, as in the case of introduced species. We here address this issue by(More)

We present the statistical evaluation of a count rate and area limited complete sample of the ROSAT All-Sky Survey (RASS) comprising 674 sources. The RASS sources are located in six study areas outside the galactic plane (|bII | >∼ 20◦) and north of δ = −9◦. The total sample contains 274 (40.7%) stars, 26 (3.9%) galaxies, 284 (42.1%) AGN, 78 (11.6%)(More)
