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)
The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze Apert and Crouzon skulls from three-dimensional (3-D) reconstructions of CT-scans. 12 Apert patients and 19 with Crouzon syndrome were included in the study. The age range was 0 to 23 years. All CT-scannings were carried out according to the same protocol with a slice thickness of 2 or 4 mm and 3-D(More)
Ninety-two stroke patients and 30 control patients participated in this study. Stroke patients showed a higher frequency of depression than controls. Stroke patients with the lesion in the right hemisphere were more depressed than patients with the lesion in the left hemisphere. No correlation was found between the degree of depression and the degree of(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)
Poor upper extremity function is often recorded in meningomyelocele patients. Only 2 of the 25 patients we assessed, 5 to 19 years old, showed normal upper extremity function in the clinical neurological examination and a timed hand function test simulating daily activities. Slow performance with unsystematic variability was typical. Poor hand function(More)
