Two cases are reported of recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis that followed thoracic manipulations in paediatric patients. Possible aetiological factors in relation to anaesthesia and operation in paediatric and adult patients are reviewed. These include: forceful endotracheal intubation; direct surgical trauma; compression of the nerve in the neck by a(More)
INTRODUCTION The highest estimated prevalence of HCV infection has been reported in Egypt, nearly 12% mostly type 4. Currently, a commercial vaccine to protect this high risk population as well as global HCV infected patients is not available.

Tim LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation), was first introduced into medicine about a decade ago, and within this relatively short time, has added a new dimension to medical science. A variety of substances (solids and gases) can stimulate laser emissions. Lasers vary in wavelength and physical properties. These variations make(More)
Fifty-one patients underwent 71 carbon dioxide laser procedures under general anesthesia for various intralaryngeal pathology. Anesthesia was induced with thiopental sodium, followed by succinylcholine to facilitate endotracheal intubation. For maintenance of anesthesia, 70% nitrous oxide was supplemented with halothane, enflurane or small doses of(More)
AIM Assessment of neutralizing activity of the human monoclonal antibodies against HCV and also study its safety in experimental small animals (Swiss mice). MATERIALS AND METHODS Assessment of neutralizing activity of the human monoclonal antibodies against HCV envelope regions (E1, E2) by two methods (by HCV cc infectious system and by using positive HCV(More)
