Ectopic calcification occurred in two patients as a late sequela of compartment syndrome. The clinical and roentgenographic appearance are sufficiently typical that the diagnosis should be made without difficulty. Leaving the wound open after incision and drainage of these lesions may lead to secondary infection. Closing the wound after decompression over(More)
Forty-three fractures of the shaft of the femur secondary to low-velocity gunshot wounds were evaluated to determine healing time, fracture alignment after healing, complications, and fracture characteristics. This study confirmed the previous reports of low infection rates and the need for minimal debridement for such fractures. The healing time was faster(More)
Two hundred and three patients, 148 males and 55 females, who during the last month before admission had experienced at least one reversible cerebral ischemic attack of less than 72 hours duration, were randomly assigned to treatment with either acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) 1000 mg daily (101 patients) or placebo (102 patients). The average follow-up period(More)
A retrospective follow-up study of 243 patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIA) is reported. The long-term mortality of the patients was higher than that of the corresponding general population. It is demonstrated that the excess mortality over the whole period of observation, irrespective of the age and sex of the patients, can be characterized by a(More)
Eighty-three children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) were examined with cranial CT. In 56 cases the CT findings were abnormal. The most frequent abnormality was atrophy, present in 44 patients. The frequency of pathologic CT increased with severity of the CP. Patients with CP of postnatal aetiology more often had abnormal CT than patients with other known(More)
A gift was delivered at term by vacuum extraction necessitated by bradycardia during labor. During the procedure the cup slipped and was replaced. There was moderate perinatal asphyxia, apgar scores being 5/1, 7/5, 9/10. On the second day of life cranial CT was performed because of seizures in left arm and leg. CT showed widening of the fight coronal suture(More)
After the introduction of cranial computed tomography (CT) it is now possible by an atraumatic procedure to evaluate the pathophysiological findings in children suffering from cerebral palsy (CP). The aim of this study is to describe the cranial CT findings in children with CP and relate these to CP-type, grade of handicap, aetiology, and presence of other(More)
