We examined the occurrence of posttraumatic movement disorders after moderate or mild head injury with a three-level follow-up study including questionnaires, telephone interviews, and personal examinations 4-6 years after the trauma (mean 5.2 years). Sixteen of 158 patients (10.1%) for whom a detailed follow-up was available had developed movement(More)

Pulmonary edema following acute or chronic upper airway obstruction is a threatening complication. A case is presented in which a 15 year old boy developed a massive pulmonary edema after a acute endotracheal tube obstruction during emergence from anesthesia. Leading pathophysiologic cause for the formation of the edema is a markedly negative intrapleural(More)
This study was carried out with three aims: to assess the variations of receptors for beta-oestradiol and progesterone, and for epidermal growth factor (EGF), alpha-fibroblast growth factor (FGF) and beta-FGF, during a spontaneous cycle in normo-ovulatory patients, 2 days before, and 2 and 7 days after the day of ovulation; to compare the control group of(More)
The present study investigates the occurrence of post-traumatic movement disorders in survivors of severe head injury. We studied a series of 398 consecutive patients who were admitted to the hospital with a Glasgow Coma Score of 8 or less after they sustained a head trauma. One hundred thirty-four out of 398 patients (34%) died after they were admitted to(More)
The effects of end-tidal concentrations of 1.45% isoflurane and 2.12% enflurane on splanchnic blood flow (electromagnetic flow probes), oxygen (O2) extraction and surface PO2 (Clark-type electrode), and hepatic metabolism (organic acids) were compared in an animal model relevant to humans. Eighteen laparotomized, ventilated pigs, anesthetized and paralyzed(More)
To determine the therapeutic effect of two vasodilators, adenosine and diltiazem, in mesenteric ischemia, 13 dogs were treated with an intra-arterial perfusion of the drugs after digitalis intoxication. Blood flow was restored to the control value after a dose of 2 micrograms/kg/minute adenosine or 5 micrograms/kg/minute diltiazem. The advantage of(More)
As demonstrated by a case report, dangerous obstruction of armoured endotracheal tubes may occur when using nitrous oxide during anaesthesia. This is based on N2O diffusion into preexisting air bubbles of the inner part of the tube wall with consequent enhancement of the bubble volume. The bubbles in the tube wall arise during production as well as during(More)
The response of DNA-synthesis of human endothelial cells to sera derived from twenty-five patients suffering from 'sepsis' or 'shock' was measured by autoradiographic methods. In eight cases a constant decrease in proliferative response was found compared to that of sera from healthy donors. These proliferation values were shown to lie below the(More)
