Retrospective clinical data from 496 eyes of 256 children attending a low vision clinic were analyzed to determine the relation between disease states which involve visual image degradation and refractive error. Refractive data from 1023 normal vision children were used as a control. The low vision children were grouped according to their disease(More)
We reviewed the records of 154 children who received 207 renal transplants for end-stage renal disease from 1965 to 1987, and discovered that 48 (31%) had had convulsive seizures, some before transplant surgery, others only after transplant, and some during both before and after transplantation. The majority of children had minimal long-term problems, and(More)
Ten cases of bipolar forearm fracture-dislocation are presented. Recognition of the full extent of the skeletal, articular, and soft-tissue injuries is essential. Treatment consists of an anatomical reduction and proximal and distal stabilization of the skeleton to achieve control as well as maintain the position of the floating radius segment. The forearm(More)
Solitary congenital or infantile (desmoid-type) fibromatosis is a benign, but potentially locally aggressive lesion that is best treated by wide local excision. It has been confused with congenital fibrosarcoma and other soft-tissue malignant tumors. To our knowledge, ossification has not been reported previously in this lesion. A case of ossifying solitary(More)
High-powered negative and positive contact lenses have been used to produce a state of continuous retinal defocus in the eyes of 11 kittens in an attempt to induce a predictable amount of axial lengthening and myopia. Another group of six kittens had one eye continuously atropinized and a third group of four animals had the lids of one eye sutured. The(More)
The objective of this study is to evaluate disease modifying efficacy and safety of a standardized extract of Trigonella foenum-graecum L, Fenugreek (IBHB) (family Fabaceae) as a nutritional adjuvant to Levo-dopa (L-Dopa) in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. We conducted double-blind placebo-controlled proof of concept clinical study of IBHB capsules (300(More)
Retrospective clinical data from 496 eyes of 256 children attending a low vision clinic were analyzed to determine the relation between different classes of disease that involve visual image degradation and astigmatism. Control data comprised refractions from 79 normal vision children. Children were classified into groups according to the category of(More)
Soft extended wear contact lenses were designed for and fitted to 12 eyes of 11 infant semiwild cynomolgus monkeys. The lenses were satisfactorily worn over observation periods of up to 465 days, the longest continuous period of lens wear being 69 days. However, some of the corneas were subject to a pattern of complications analogous to that in human(More)
AIM To evaluate the whether screening for cerebral metastases in neurologically intact patients with potentially resectable non-small cell lung cancer patients is both worthwhile and cost-effective. METHODS We prospectively performed computed tomography (CT) of the head in 105 consecutive patients with potentially resectable lung cancer over an 18-month(More)
