The purpose of this study was to examine the separate effects of contraction force and frequency on postexercise hyperemia in the human calf muscle. Nine male subjects were used. Each was seated in a chair with the right foot on a pedal coupled to a load cell and the knee secured. Calf muscle blood flow, measured by a Whitney gauge, was determined before(More)
One-hundred patients undergoing radial forearm flap reconstruction in the head and neck over a 2-year period were followed prospectively to assess complications and morbidity associated with the radial flap donor site. Eighty-six patients were available follow-up at 3 months and 74 at 1 year (49 fasciocutaneous, 25 composite). Partial loss of the donor-site(More)
Ninety-eight patients with acute myocardial infarction were randomly allocated to receive sulphinpyrazone 200 mg four times daily or placebo on admission to a coronary care unit. Twenty-four-hour electrocardiogram tape recordings showed no significant reduction in serious arrhythmias in the sulphinpyrazone-treated group. In addition to the expected all in(More)
An 11 year old girl developed hypertensive encephalopathy and renal failure from reflux nephropathy. Resection of her shrunken left kidney did not control her hypertension. Two selective arterial embolisations of the scarred right lower pole produced only transient benefit, but a heminephrectomy gave good control. Embolisation may delay definitive treatment.
Sacrifice of the facial nerve during surgery for parotid malignancy is rarely necessary, but the sequelae of facial nerve paralysis necessitates some form of facial re-animation. The technique which achieves the best results is that of immediate nerve grafting. This paper records our experience with 14 cases of extra temporal reconstruction of the facial(More)

Six male subjects within the age range of 20-35 yr consented to perform static calf muscle contractions at 7.5, 15, and 30% of their maximum voluntary contractile strength (MVC) for a period of 2 min each. Isometric contractions were performed in a sitting position by pressing the knee against a solid support plate via plantar flexion. Calf muscle blood(More)
Twenty-one patients undergoing distal pancreatectomy from January 1980 through April 1987 were studied retrospectively. Group I (n = 10) had distal pancreatectomy with splenectomy, and Group II (n = 11) had distal pancreatectomy with splenic preservation. The groups were comparable in mean age and extent of pancreatic resection. Operative time in Group I(More)
Two patients developed gaze-evoked tinnitus in the year following removal of a cerebellopontine angle mass. The eighth nerve was transected in both cases. The noise was present with saccades, pursuit, and vestibuloocular eye movements. We postulate the tinnitus was due to an abnormal interaction between the vestibular nucleus and the cochlear nucleus,(More)
Reshaping of the forehead and fronto-orbitlal bandeau in the correction of craniosynostosis requires careful attention to the ideal craniofacial proportions. Osteotomies guided by standard templates have been described to correct deformities of the fronto-orbital bandeau and forehead. We have used an individualized template as a guide to correction by(More)
