Numerous uses of fibrin glue as a sealant, hemostatic agent, and adhesive have been reported. We developed a simple method of preparing autologous fibrin glue for skin-graft fixation. Fifty patients have undergone the autologous fibrin glue technique for trauma, burns, and difficult wounds. The mean area grafted was 237 cm2 (range 50 to 700 cm2), and grafts(More)
Flow modulation epitaxy (FME) has been employed previously to synthesize III-V arsenides and phosphides. However, the ability of FME to extend growth to lower temperatures than those required for conventional organometallic vapor phase epitaxy (OMVPE) has only recently been explored for the synthesis of nitride based semiconductors. Because, in part, of the(More)
The thin film growth of GaN, AlGaN, and AlN on GaN/SiC substrates by molecular beam epitaxy ~MBE! has been studied. The GaN/SiC substrates consisted of 3-mm-thick GaN buffer layers grown on 6H-SiC wafers by metal organic vapor phase epitaxy ~MOVPE! at Cree Research, Inc. A radio frequency plasma source was employed to generate active nitrogen species for(More)
Two types of nitrogen plasma sources, an electron cyclotron resonance ~ECR! plasma source and a radio frequency ~rf! plasma source, were used for the growth of GaN by molecular beam epitaxy ~MBE!. GaN film quality was correlated with the optical emission characteristics of each type of nitrogen plasma source employed. The best quality GaN films were those(More)
Carpal tunnel compression syndrome caused by a retracted divided sublimus tendon has been presented. The case presented here represents another cause of carpal tunnel compression syndrome. With resection of the space-occupying retracted and scarred sublimis tendon, the symptoms of median nerve compression remitted. Considering the large volume of hand(More)
Since modern tissue expansion was introduced in 1976, it has proved to be a safe and effective technique for obtaining extra tissue where traditionally distant flaps and grafts had been used. However, the lengthy expansion times and prolonged gross deformity of conventional expansion protocols have often deterred both physician and patient from choosing(More)
