Subdural collections or hematomas are frequently observed after shunt placement [7–9, 13], but rarely after ETV [6]. A review of literature revealed 7 cases [1, 5, 6, 10, 12], of which only 1 was symptomatic [5]. We will discuss the causes, management, and methods of prevention of this complication and we will present a case of symptomatic subdural(More)
BACKGROUND Researchers have developed scales assessing adults' trust beliefs in physicians and found that those are associated with measures of health behaviour and physical health. The purpose of the research was to develop a Children's Trust in General Physicians Scale (CTGPS) and examine its relation to health behaviour: adherence to medical regimes. (More)
Induced hypotensive anaesthesia and isovolaemic haemodilution are well-established blood-sparing techniques in major surgery. This prospective study compared them for blood loss, transfusion requirements, and surgical field quality during standardized orthognathic operations. In a surgeon-blinded trial, 60 healthy patients requiring either Le Fort I(More)
Thirty-three consecutive patients treated surgically for "tethered cord syndrome" over a 3-three year period were reviewed. The main presenting complaints were back and leg pain, progressive lower limb and spinal deformity, and neurological deficits. Untethering of the cord was achieved in 32 patients, in whom the filum terminale was divided in 17. There(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether or not changes in serum concentrations of complement component C3 are of value in predicting the long term survival of the transplanted kidney. C3 was quantitated by radial immunodiffusion in fresh sera drawn immediately before transplantation and twice weekly thereafter from 10 recipients. Fourteen(More)
An integrated analysis of 15 patients with tracheobronchial abnormalities, bronchogenic cysts and pulmonary sequestration demonstrates that these diverse clinical conditions are expressions of basic embryologic maldevelopment patterns. The clinical conditions described are indicative of differences in degree of the embryologic disorder. In addition to the(More)
Smelt7 described several variations of the congenital anomaly which they termed tracheal lobe. Essentially, an otherwise normal right upper lobe bronchus originates above the tracheal carina or bifurcation and provides the customary three segmental divisions. There may, however, be a complete duplication of the right upper lobe bronchus by an ectopic(More)
1. The pharmacokinetics of single oral doses of 20 mg lisinopril and 0.25 mg digoxin, given alone and together, have been studied in 12 normal young male volunteers. 2. Peak serum conc of lisinopril occurred at 6 to 8 h and were slightly higher during combined treatment. Subsequent elimination proceeded moderately rapidly in both cases, concn declining to(More)
