We have examined the effect of remifentanil on the haemodynamic response to orotracheal intubation in a randomized, double-blind study. We studied 40 patients allocated to one of four groups of 10 each, to receive the following immediately before induction of anaesthesia: remifentanil 1 microgram kg-1 bolus over 30 s, followed by an infusion of 0.5(More)
Multiple surgeries are often required to manage segmental bone loss because of the complex mechanics and biology involved in reconstruction. These procedures can lead to prolonged recovery times, poor patient outcomes, and even delayed amputation. A two-stage technique uses induced biologic membranes with delayed placement of bone graft to manage this(More)
BACKGROUND The management of unruptured aneurysms is controversial, with the decision to treat influenced by aneurysm characteristics including size and morphology. Aneurysmal bleb formation is thought to be associated with an increased risk of rupture. OBJECTIVE To correlate computational fluid dynamic (CFD) indices with bleb formation. METHODS(More)
We report a 41-year-old male who presented with a partial Brown-Sequard syndrome and Horner's syndrome following a penetrating drill bit injury to his mid cervical spine. As the injury was not a complete hemisection of the spinal cord, the patient presented with ipsilateral motor deficit and hyperesthesia and diminished contralateral fine touch sensation;(More)
How blood was able to reach the heads of the long-necked sauropod dinosaurs has long been a matter of debate and several hypotheses have been presented. For example, it has been proposed that sauropods had exceptionally large hearts, multiple 'normal' sized hearts spaced at regular intervals up the neck or held their necks horizontal, or that the siphon(More)
The authors report a case of a 22-year-old otherwise healthy female who presented following a head injury during a bar altercation, with no associated loss of consciousness and an unknown mechanism of injury. Examination revealed an isolated 1cm laceration on the right upper eyelid, superior to her medial canthus. She experienced diplopia on right(More)
We report a man with biparietal foramina secondary to Potocki-Shaffer syndrome. This is due to incomplete ossification of parietal bones secondary to haploinsuffiency of ALX4 gene. He presented with multiple episodes of concussion following minimal head trauma. Cranioplasty was performed to close the skull defects with the aim of preventing further(More)
