There is considerable controversy over whether nutrition in early life has a long-term influence on neurodevelopment. We have shown previously that, in preterm infants, mother's choice to provide breast milk was associated with higher developmental scores at 18 months. We now report data on intelligence quotient (IQ) in the same children seen at 7 1/2-8(More)
CONTEXT Home monitors designed to identify cardiorespiratory events are frequently used in infants at increased risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), but the efficacy of such devices for this use is unproven. OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that preterm infants, siblings of infants who died of SIDS, and infants who have experienced an idiopathic,(More)
To assist in distinguishing patients with truly decreased hand grip strength from those deliberately not gripping the dynamometer at maximal capacity, a rapid exchange grip strength test was devised and tested under four conditions. Part I, 100 normal subjects undergoing static grip testing and the rapid exchange grip test. Part II, 45 patients chosen at(More)
Infant polysomnography (IPSG) is an increasingly important procedure for studying infants with sleep and breathing disorders. Since analyses of these IPSG data are subjective, an equally important issue is the reliability or strength of agreement among scorers (especially among experienced clinicians) of sleep parameters (SP) and sleep states (SS). One(More)
An anomalous muscle is uncommonly associated with ulnar nerve compression at the wrist. Anomalies of the palmaris longus, abductor digiti minimi, flexor digiti minimi, and flexor carpi ulnaris have been described. Another case is presented in which the anomalous muscle would appear to be a duplication of the palmaris brevis. This muscle has been named the(More)

Based on our research, we understand community engagement to be " people working collaboratively, through inspired action and learning, to create and realize bold visions for their common future. " We want to focus on process(es) that bring people together; the broad engagement of organizations and people. We believe these processes can enable collective(More)
In 12 dissections the extensor digiti minimi tendons inserted into the abductor tubercle of the proximal phalanx. In eight of the 12, the tendons passed to the ulnar side of the abductor-adductor axis of the metacarpophalangeal joint. A separate tendon from the extensor digitorum communis to the little finger was found in only one dissection, with all(More)
In six cases of thumb hypoplasia, a muscle arose from the anomalous flexor pollicis longus tendon in the region of the metacarpophalangeal joint, passed across the narrowed first web space, joined the lumbrical belly of the index, and inserted into the extensor hood of that digit. Traction on the muscle at its origin in the thumb produced extension of the(More)
In ten cases, including five rod placements, four tenolyses, and one immediate tendon graft, 15 pulleys have been reconstructed using a strip of extensor retinaculum 6 to 8 cm long and 8 mm in width. Placed around the phalanx, overlapped, and sutured, the 15 mm segment formely over the fourth dorsal compartment has been positioned over the flexor tendod.(More)
This study investigated whether the sensory-to-motor reinervation of the muscle flap provides a better sensory recovery of an overlying skin graft. Fifty-four animals were studied in three groups of 18 rats each: group I (control): 1 cm of the gastrocnemius muscle motor nerve was excised and no repair was performed; group II (motor-to-motor repair): the(More)
