OBJECTIVE To define the anatomic limitations and advantages of the middle cranial fossa and the retrosigmoid transcanal approaches in the exposure of the fundus of the internal auditory canal (IAC). STUDY DESIGN A series of 15 cadaver temporal bone specimens were dissected and the measurements of the lateral recess of the IAC were made with a millimeter(More)
Restoration of grip function was achieved through transfer of the recovered biceps tendon to the long digital flexors using a fascia lata graft in seven patients with complete brachial plexus palsy. Initial nerve repair was followed by biceps transfer with stabilising wrist and hand fusions. The biceps recovered to Medical Research Council (MRC) grade 4 in(More)
Cleft hand is a rare and complex malformation in which the central part of the hand is missing. Since the nineteenth century, a very small number of dissections in cleft hand have been reported and very few reports describe the soft-tissue abnormalities. We report a case of an elderly cadaveric specimen with bilateral cleft hand. X-ray, CT-scan with 3D(More)
Fifty-two consecutive infants who received intravenous indomethacin, 0.2 mg/kg, were reviewed to determine factors associated with the occurrence of oliguria. Serum creatinine and concentration prior to indomethacin did not predict the occurrence of oliguria. A mean urine output of less than 4.5 mL/kg/hr prior to the administration of indomethacin was the(More)
We have assessed the anatomical feasibility of a transfer of the first intercostal nerve to the supra- and infraspinatus muscles and report on the first clinical application. Ten fresh cadavers were dissected for this study. Histomorphometric analysis showed the fascicular surface area of the first intercostal nerve at its origin (0.38 mm(2)) to be(More)
