AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Human complex metabolic traits are in part regulated by genetic determinants. Here we applied exome sequencing to identify novel associations of coding polymorphisms at minor allele frequencies (MAFs) >1% with common metabolic phenotypes. METHODS The study comprised three stages. We performed medium-depth (8×) whole exome sequencing in(More)
In parallel with but completely independent from Harvey Cushing, Norway had its own giant in the establishment of the special field of neurological surgery. Vilhelm Magnus (1871-1929), born in the United States in Fillmore County, Minnesota, was Norway's pioneering neurosurgeon. Following graduation in Oslo, he started his clinical training in neurology and(More)
The histopathology of the inner ear in a patient with hearing loss caused by the p.L114P COCH mutation and its correlation with the clinical phenotype are presented. To date, 23 COCH mutations causative of DFNA9 autosomal dominant sensorineural hearing loss and vestibular disorder have been reported, and the histopathology of the human inner ear has been(More)
Artificial subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) produced by injection of autologous blood into the cisterna magna in dogs gave rise to considerable narrowing or spasm of the basilar artery and its branches, including the posterior cerebral arteries, as demonstrated by cerebral angiography. Repeated cisternal injections of blood at various intervals produced more(More)
This is the report of the Committee on Neurosurgical Education of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies, which report was presented at the Seventh International Congress of Neurological Surgery in Munich in July 1981. The Committee was charged to conduct a survey of neurosurgical training requirements and certifying mechanisms throughout the(More)
Olof af Acrel, the father of Swedish Surgery, operated in 1768 upon a young nobleman who had experienced an increasing swelling on the skull, due to a tumour which also turned out to be growing deep into the brain parenchyma. The patient survived the operation for 3 days. Edvard Bull in 1877, after diagnosing a ruptured internal carotid artery aneurysm in a(More)
