We treated 15 patients with atrophic nonunion of a diaphyseal fracture of the humerus with an associated bony defect using an autogenous cancellous bone graft and a plate to bridge the defect. There were nine men and six women with a mean age of 48 years. The mean length of the bony defect was 3 cm. At a mean follow-up of 30 months only one fracture failed(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Pediatric acute liver failure is a rare disorder which results in death or the need for liver transplantation in 25-50% of cases. The adults scores are unable to predict survival without liver transplantation of pediatric patients. The present study assessed the use the of indocyanine green plasma disappearance rate as a tool to predict(More)
The effect of cross-regional or cross-cultural differences on color appearance ratings and memory colors of familiar objects was investigated in seven different countries/regions - Belgium, Hungary, Brazil, Colombia, Taiwan, China and Iran. In each region the familiar objects were presented on a calibrated monitor in over 100 different colors to a test(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the immunogenicity of a vaccine against this virus in a prospective cohort of transplanted pediatric patients without previous influenza infection who received one dose of MF59®-adjuvanted pandemic H1N1/2009 vaccine. Seventeen patients who were being regularly followed up at the Outpatient Clinic of the Children's(More)
We have studied nine male patients (age 18 to 68 years) with radiographic and physiologic evidence of an abnormally small lung on one side (three right and six left). All had had a childhood pneumonia or bronchiolitis and eight had chronic or recurrent bronchitis and exertional dyspnea. Radiography showed two of the small lungs to be hypolucent while seven(More)
To assess the safety and efficacy of conversion from twice-daily tacrolimus to once-daily tacrolimus in pediatric liver transplant recipients. Conversion from twice-daily to once-daily tacrolimus was made in stable pediatric liver transplant recipients. Doses and serum levels of tacrolimus, liver, and renal function were recorded on the day before the(More)
All artificial lighting devices undergo some color shift over the course of their useful lifetime. Unlike incandescent and halogen lamps, which display a gradual shift along the Plankian locus, energy-efficient lamps degrade Color-Correlated Temperature (CCT), in a non-blackbody manner. This exacerbates a generally poor appearance, and can impede public(More)
 Abstract--The use of the LED technology has been increasing in the last years due to the advantages of this technology with respect to the current lighting technologies; one of these advantages is his rapid on-off commutation ability allowing the data transmissions using the light as channel. In this work we will determine the state of art of Visible(More)
Laryngeal papillomatosis is one of the first diseases where interferon (IFN) was found to be effective. In 1983, a programme for the treatment of all such cases started in Cuba. Up to December 1991, 125 patients (92 children, 33 adults) have been treated: 102 with leucocyte IFN-alpha, 12 with recombinant IFN-alpha-2b, and 11 have received both preparations.(More)
