OBJECTIVE Poststroke hyperglycemia is common and is associated with increased risk of death and dependence, but appropriate management remains uncertain. Glucose potassium insulin (GKI) infusion did not benefit patients with moderate poststroke hyperglycemia in a recent trial. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), previous studies identified a(More)
Left Ventricular Noncompaction (LVNC) is a genetic cardiac disease of emerging importance with a distinct clinical and pathophysiological presentation. The most common clinical manifestations include heart failure, arrhythmias and embolic events, and in children it may be associated with facial dysmorphisms and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. The diagnosis(More)
In the UK an accelerated schedule for immunisation against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (injections at 2, 3, and 4 months of age) was introduced in 1990 to replace the more widely spaced schedule of 3, 5, and 9 months.

Two hundred and twenty seven children with a height below the 3rd or above the 97th centile were seen consecutively in the Oxford growth clinic. Their referral ages were analysed to determine the pattern of referral. Eighty seven per cent of the children had short stature. In 40% of these there was an organic reason for abnormal growth--the most common(More)

In the last few years neuroeconomics, which combines imaging with multiplayer behavioural economic paradigms, has been used to study the neural substrates of(More)

The long term outcome is almost always excellent for the child with a psychogenic cough, but as the symptoms may persist for months-or even years-an early remission will benefit both the child's education and the family's sanity. Usually the cough(More)
