In two patients full-thickness burns were grafted with cultured autologous epidermis obtained using the technique described by H. Green.

Better efficiency and more information about the long-term characteristics of the resulting skin are necessary before routine use can be recommended.

Permanent catheters proposed as an alternative to permanent AV fistulae are associated with a significant risk of infection. A subcutaneously implantable chamber connected(More)
The authors report a series of 16 patients with extensive burns partially treated by epidermal culture between May 1985 and July 1988. This series consisted of 9 males and 7 females between the ages of 6 and 88 years (mean age: 34 years). The mean surface area of the burns was 66% (range: 30% to 92%). The technique of epidermis culture used was derived from(More)
Postoperative pain was treated by epidural administration of 30 to 50 mg pethidine (5 mg X ml-1) in a group of 36 patients who had undergone retropubic prostatectomy. Surgery was carried out under epidural anaesthesia with lidocaine. Pain was assessed by means of the visual analogue scale. A general study of the effects of injections and reinjections showed(More)
