One indication for suburethral sling procedures has been recurrent genuine stress incontinence after previous incontinence surgery. Patients with low urethral closure pressures (20 cm H2O or less) in association with genuine stress incontinence are at particular risk for failure of standard anti-incontinence procedures. Urodynamic evaluation was used to(More)
From January 1982 to December 1987, 114 hips of 80 patients underwent pinning for treatment of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). Three groups were differentiated based on the number of pins used. The average length of follow-up was 2 years 5 months. The mean time to physeal closure was 5.43 months in the single pin group, 5.54 months in the two pin(More)
STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study to determine the efficacy of posterior-only unit rod instrumentation and fusion in a skeletally immature neuromuscular scoliosis population. OBJECTIVE To determine whether the posterior-only approach to this population adequately addresses the concerns of correction of scoliosis and pelvic obliquity, maintenance of that(More)
Thirty-seven cerebral palsy patients were followed with measurements of the migration index (MI), infrapelvic obliquity, and suprapelvic obliquity over a mean period of 73 months to evaluate the development of the windblown deformity. The infrapelvic asymmetry was apparent before the suprapelvic obliquity; however, 65% eventually had both. The final pattern(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and carcinomas. The present study involved women who had an abnormal Papanicolaou smear and whose cervix contained acetowhite area(s) that lacked the histologic features of CIN. Sequences homologous to HPV DNA, determined by Southern blot hybridization analysis, were(More)
A human being is capable of learning how to control many complex systems without knowing the mathematical model behind such systems, so there must exist some way to imitate that behavior with a machine. A novel hybrid self-learning controller is proposed that is capable of learning how to control unknown linear and nonlinear processes incorporating a(More)
The authors correlated Papanicolaou smear diagnoses with the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) as determined by in situ hybridization in concurrent biopsy-proven cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs) in 132 women. Infection by HPV 6 or 11 was associated with a simultaneous normal Papanicolaou smear in 4 of 29 (14%) cases. This result was(More)
STUDY DESIGN A case report of a patient with autosomal dominant osteopetrosis and neuromuscular scoliosis who required surgical instrumentation and fusion of her spine. OBJECTIVE To illustrate the surgical technique and long-term outcome in this rare form of spinal deformity. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Osteopetrosis is a group of rare skeletal(More)
The diagnosis of a vulvar condyloma is made when perinuclear halos are seen with nuclear atypia and binucleate forms (koilocytotic atypia). These changes are most prominent in the granular layer and are associated with the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV). However, these changes may be absent or minimal in patients with papillary vulvar lesions; this(More)
