In two patients full-thickness burns were grafted with cultured autologous epidermis obtained using the technique described by H. Green. The grafts only took partially but produced satisfactory covering. Better efficiency and more information about the long-term characteristics of the resulting skin are necessary before routine use can be recommended.
Postoperative pain was treated by epidural administration of 30 to 50 mg pethidine (5 mg X ml-1) in a group of 36 patients who had undergone retropubic prostatectomy.

The most significant clinical sign of aortic rupture is the difference in blood pressure between the upper and lower limbs. The frequency of chest film findings is discussed. The aortography by arterial route must be performed at the sligh test(More)
