Mean resting pressure in the anal canal of patients was markedly decreased, particularly in the presence of incontinence, and unstable. The recording of a rectoanal inhibitory(More)

Patient tolerance was high with mild heat observed in 7 patients in the ioversol-320 group and 1 patient in the ioversol-240 group. Assessment of pain was(More)

Neonatal primary hyperparathyroidism is a life threatening disorder that is associated with severe hypercalcaemia, hypotonia, bone demineralization, fractures and respiratory distress. Treatment consists of total parathyroidectomy and without this affected infants will usually die by the age of three months. We report a patient with neonatal primary(More)
Motility of the anorectal area was studied in 19 patients with myotonic dystrophy and in 20 control subjects, before and after pudendal block. In patients with myotonic dystrophy, before anesthesia, resting pressure in the upper anal canal ( p less than 0.001) and duration and amplitude of relaxation of the rectoanal inhibitory reflex (p less than 0.01)(More)
A 65-year-old male (GM) was referred to the physiotherapy department of the regional limb fitting centre for outpatient rehabilitation following a right transfemoral amputation five weeks previously. He had been knocked down by a bus and suffered a crush injury to the right leg resulting in a stable fracture to the right pubic ramus, a fractured skull and(More)
