The load-displacement-time characteristics of the lumbarspine were obtained undersimulated central posteroanterior (PA) mobilisation. The instrumentation(the spinal mobiliser) consisted of a motor-driven force applicator and a pair of displacement transducers. The PA mobility of the L3, L4 and L5 segments of 28 young normal subjects (14 males and 14(More)
Inclusion criteria The following characteristics of enuretics being studied should be included: * Age, including the range for acceptance in the study, and the mean and actual age range of those children enrolled * Number of boys and girls * Presence or absence of organic disease * Number of children with associated diurnal enuresis (such children may(More)
The 2-pool urea kinetic model has been developed analytically and applied to the description of the observed increase in blood levels of urea following dialysis (urea rebound), assuming that the dialyser urea clearance K less than 0.4X where X is the urea mass transfer coefficient between the intracellular and extracellular pools (volumes V1, V2(More)
High serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) values are consistent with ovarian failure. We studied the progress of 67 women aged under 35 years with oligomenorrhoea or secondary amenorrhoea in whom the serum FSH value was greater than 20 U/1. Twenty-four patients remained amenorrhoeic, but 17 ovulated and six conceived, two on two occasions. Coincident(More)
BACKGROUND Diarrhea-associated (D+) hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a common cause of acute renal failure in children. Progressive renal insufficiency has been documented on prolonged follow-up of selected patients. However, it is uncertain whether all children recovering from varying degrees of HUS require long-term follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS We(More)
Thirty-seven antibody-deficient patients who were participating in a multicenter trial evaluating home-based, self-administered IVIG therapy anonymously completed questionnaires regarding beliefs concerning health control, quality of life, and attitudes toward active participation in medical care. Their responses were compared with a group of 29 patients(More)
One hundred and fifty eight paired arterial and capillary blood samples were obtained from 41 sick preterm infants in their first week of life and the pH, and PCO2, and PO2 concentrations were measured. Half of the capillary samples were obtained from unwarmed heels and half from heels warmed to 40 degrees C. A potentially significant discrepancy(More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine the loads acting on the lumbar spine when traction therapy was given in the Fowler's position. The study had two parts: a theoretical analysis which showed that traction produced a flexion moment on the spine as well as axial distraction; and an experimental study which measured the flexion moment induced by(More)
