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)
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)
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)
To measure the effects of tobacco smoke inhalation on capillary blood flow in human skin, 20 female tobacco smokers consented to smoke three cigarettes with nicotine levels of 0.50, 0.98, and 1.90 mg per cigarette, each on a separate occasion. Measurements of blood flow velocity and vascular diameter were made along the venous limb of capillaries within the(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)
Animals living around humans may habituate to us, but little is known about the consequences of this habituation. Some wildlife managers assume that habituation to humans makes individuals less likely to respond to natural predators, which is something to be avoided in captive breeding programmes where animals are destined for release. We conducted a(More)
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)
Segmental maxillary osteotomy is a useful adjunct in orthognathic surgery for the correction of vertical and transverse maxillary deformities, but we know of few published reports that document complications. We evaluated the complication rates associated with segmental maxillary surgery in our unit by retrospective review of medical records, radiographs,(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this prospective study was to compare MR angiography of the carotid artery from the aortic arch through the circle of Willis using maximum-intensity projection (MIP) and multiplanar reformation (MPR) images with intraarterial angiography in the depiction of extracranial carotid atherosclerosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The carotid(More)
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)
