A study of normal locomotion requires an understanding of both the movements and the force actions involved. This is equally true in appreciating the problems of pathological gait. The gait cycle is described in terms of the significant events which occur during both the stance and swing phases. The basic principles underlying the analysis of force actions(More)
Patients with carotid occlusive disease may develop a variety of symptoms and signs secondary to chronic ocular ischaemia. We report six cases affecting nine eyes and review the findings of teichopsia, anterior segment ischaemia, venous stasis retinopathy, and ocular neovascularisation. The assessment and surgical management of carotid obstruction are(More)
Relevant factors determining the management of inaccessible retained lead airgun pellets are discussed in relation to 11 orbital cases. Although the injuries were of between one month's and 26 years' standing, serum lead levels were normal at under 350 micrograms/l in all instances. This is attributable to the modern alloy composition of the ammunition in(More)
We have compared the anti-inflammatory efficacy of 5% tolmetin sodium dihydrate, 0.5% prednisolone disodium phosphate, and 0.1% betamethasone disodium phosphate in 71 consecutive patients presenting with acute endogenous non-granulomatous uveitis randomly assigned to one of these treatment groups. Inflammatory symptoms and signs were scored during the(More)
A report of 11 cases of solar retinopathy is given. Particular emphasis is laid on the mechanism of light hazard with protective measures available, symptoms including scotomata with visual prognosis, and the clinico-pathological correlation of the findings. These are divided into mild, with early retinal oedema, and moderate, with later development of(More)
Escherichia coli infection is very common cause of early onset septicemia especially in very low-birth-weight newborns, but E. coli endocarditis has not been described in newborns. E. coli endocarditis, even in the adult population, is a rare and not well-characterized disease and is associated with high mortality. We report a very unusual presentation of(More)
