Seventeen commercial and research laboratories participated in two comparison tests under the auspices of the International Society for Animal Genetics to develop an internationally tested, microsatellite-based parentage and identification panel for the domestic cat (Felis catus). Genetic marker selection was based on the polymorphism information content(More)
The full picture of functional ulnar deficiency, following suture or grafting, was studied and analyzed by two of the authors, who followed this series of patients on a long-term basis. The patients were tested using sphygmometric rubber bulbs in other to determine the overall closing force of the hand (making a fist), and the force of the pinch between the(More)
A rare case of simultaneous dislocation of the interphalangeal and metacarpo-phalangeal joints of the thumb is reported. The displacement was first reduced conservatively and the ligaments of the metacarpo-phalangeal joint repaired surgically at a later date. The result was satisfactory.
The authors report their experience in dealing with 43 cases of secondary surgery on the flexor pollicis longus tendon between 1970 and 1982. After an anatomical and biomechanical survey, the results of the different techniques used are analyzed: tenolysis (12 cases). tenodesis (one case), one- (3 cases) or two-stage (4 cases) grafts, flexor digitorum(More)
Cold sensitivity often occurs after upper limb nerve injuries. 82 patients were reviewed retrospectively with an average follow-up of 42 months. Cold sensitivity occurred after 50% of median nerve injuries and after 75% of ulnar nerve injuries. Symptoms are localized to the damaged sensory nerve territory, and are related to the level of the lesion after(More)
77 patients with an isolated traumatic ulnar nerve lesion were operated on between 1972 and 1982. 40 patients with more than 18 months of follow-up were reviewed with a new clinical quoting. 37.5 p. cent of satisfactory results were achieved with nerve sutures done in emergency, 56.3 p. cent with secondary nerve grafting. Factors influencing the results(More)
