In this study of infants with isolated birth defects, 69 cleft palate only cases, 114 cleft lip with or without cleft palate cases, and 284 controls with noncleft birth defects (all born in Maryland between 1984 and 1992) were examined to test for associations among maternal exposures, genetic markers, and oral clefts. A significantly higher frequency of(More)

Functional tests of adrenal axis in children with measurement of plasma cortisol by competitive protein binding. The competitive protein binding assay is the method of choice for estimation of plasma cortisol in children. Resting plasma(More)
Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) survivors demonstrate handicapping sensorineural hearing loss up to 50 times more frequently than normal newborns, yet little is known about the etiology of the hearing loss. Theoretically, accurate identification and triage of a particular infant based on a clinical profile would be useful. Forty NICU graduates of The(More)
Influenza A (H3N2) viruses were isolated from outbreaks and epidemics of disease during the period December 1977 to March 1978. For the last two months of this period, H1N1 strains of influenza A were also responsible for epidemics. In some regions (e.g., Hawaii) co-circulation of H1N1 AND H3N2 strains occurred, whereas in other regions (e.g., Wisconsin)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of a midface seal drape in eliminating fire risk oxygen concentrations from nasal cannulated oxygen delivery compared with a standard open oculofacial surgical field. METHODS Controlled experiment using the SimMan patient simulator and an oxygen detector. Oxygen concentrations were measured at 9 facial surgical locations(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this article was to describe positive sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) findings in patients with periocular invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). METHODS This was a retrospective chart review of 5 patients with invasive SCC of the periocular region who underwent SLNB and were found to have regional metastasis. RESULTS All patients(More)
Electroneurography (ENoG) has demonstrated utility in adults with facial nerve paralysis. We wished to evaluate the possible usefulness of this test in children. Twenty-six patients, aged 3 months through 16 years, were studied. Initial measurements were obtainable in all but two patients; they were successfully tested on a second attempt. All subsequent(More)
A 40-year-old man presented with bradycardia, left eye pain, and intermittent nausea 1 day after blunt trauma to the left orbit. Imaging revealed a large orbital floor fracture with significant herniation of orbital contents but no obvious extraocualar muscle entrapment. Oculocardiac reflex was suspected, and the fracture was repaired surgically within 24(More)
THIS REVIEW OF ORBITAL FRACTURES HAS THREE GOALS: 1) to understand the clinically relevant orbital anatomy with regard to periorbital trauma and orbital fractures, 2) to explain how to assess and examine a patient after periorbital trauma, and 3) to understand the medical and surgical management of orbital fractures. The article aims to summarize the(More)
