Supernumerary nostrils are extremely rare. A review of the literature revealed 21 published cases since 1906. We present a case of supernumerary nostril located above and to the side of the left nostril in a male patient. We discuss differences between published reports, surgical techniques proposed, and the outcome of our treatment approach.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the shoulder strength ratios obtained from college-level baseball pitchers and age- and sex-matched nonpitchers. Shoulder flexion/extension and externallinternal rotation strength ratios were assessed in 10 pitchers and 9 nonpitchers. Speeds selected for testing were 180 and 300 degrees /sec on the Cybex /I.@R(More)
The COBE-DMR 4-year maps displayed a strong non-Gaussian signal in the " inter-scale " components of the bispectrum: their observed values did not display the scatter expected from Gaussian maps. We reexamine this and other suggested non-Gaussian features in the light of WMAP. We find that they all disappear. Given that it was proved that COBE-DMR high(More)
