Intracranial hypertension can occur with induction of anesthesia; however, the clinical significance of this is unclear. We used transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography in neurosurgical patients during induction of anesthesia and endotracheal intubation to assess the incidence of high intracranial pressure (ICP) waveforms and to correlate TCD(More)
Reanimation of the paralyzed face in patients who have coexisting lower cranial nerve palsies is a difficult management problem. Classic hypoglossal to facial nerve anastomosis may be devastating in these already compromised patients. We describe a technique of partial hypoglossal to facial anastomosis that can preserve hypoglossal nerve function and(More)
A strategy employing moderate hypothermia for replacement of the aortic arch is proposed to avoid the complications of profound hypothermic circulatory arrest. Two patients underwent complete replacement of the aortic arch using three pumps (Figure 1a - one to perfuse the brain, one for the thoracoabdominal aorta and the third for the heart). There were no(More)
UNLABELLED The present clinical study was undertaken to determine the effects of splinting overunsplinted mobile teeth following periodontal surgery and compared the efficacy of two splinting materials, i.e. Ribbond ribbon + Composite with Stainless steel wire + Composite. MATERIALS AND METHODS Total of 30 patients (20 experimental and 10 control) formed(More)
An unusual case of adult-onset aqueduct stenosis is discussed. The patient presented with a 3-year history of bowel and bladder incontinence without associated dementia, gait disturbance, headache, visual loss, or hypothalamic dysfunction. The absence of the midportion of the sylvian aqueduct in this patient is verified by magnetic resonance imaging.
