BACKGROUND Undercorrection has recently been found to enhance the rate of progression of myopia. This result was thought to be controversial as it contrasted with expectations based on animal studies, as well as the results found wearing progressive addition lenses. The aim of the present study was to again determine the effect of undercorrection on the(More)
Intraneuronal inclusions, consisting of polyglucosan and having histochemical and ultrastructural features identical to Lafora body of familial myoclonic epilepsy (Unverricht-Lafora disease), have been found restricted to the lateral pallidum in five patients. Two of these patients were also found to have status marmoratus of the basal ganglia. These(More)
OBJECTIVE Non-union of osteoporotic vertebra fractures are a seldom entity. However, when back pain persists in the course of conservatively treated osteoporotic vertebra fractures, a non-union should be considered. We thus sought to validate our diagnostic algorithm in patients with known osteoporotic vertebra fractures presenting persistent back pain and(More)

Sixteen patients with end stage squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck were admitted to a phase II study of alternating courses of cisplatinum (100 mg/m2) and VAC (vincristine 1.4 mg/m2, adriamycin 50 mg/m2, cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m2) given at three weekly intervals. Only two patients achieved a response (12 per cent). The median survival time was 62(More)
Epidural anaesthesia, used for pain relief, is based on blocking the sensory and the sympathetic nerves in the lower part of the body. Since the sympathetic nervous system regulates blood vessel diameter, the sympathetic block is also associated with several haemodynamic changes. In the current study photoplethysmography (PPG) was measured on toes and(More)
