The surgical treatment of superior oblique paresis is most gratifying to the patient and to the surgeon. Whereas the large range of vertical fusion may make it difficult to bring out the total deviation, this same fusion is the surgeon's best ally postoperatively. In addition, while there are multiple choice as to which muscle or muscles to operate upon,(More)
Mineralogical and chemical investigations of deposits from superheaters and economisers from a MSWI plant in Mannheim, Germany, lead to a classification system which provides information about the most critical parameters leading to fouling and corrosion. With the help of this classification system parameters like the geometry of boilers and the waste input(More)
Summary form only given. Over the last few years, numerous 1D and 2D MHD simulation studies of deuterium (D) based double-shell gas-puff Z-pinch implosions driven by the Sandia ZR accelerator have been carried out to assess the Z-pinch as a pulsed, thermal fusion neutron source. In these studies, an ad-hoc time-dependent shunt impedance model was used(More)
Our case of cutaneous leishmaniasis clinically resembles the atypical form "infiltrees en nappes" that was described by Photinos in 1930. A subsequent biopsy of the lesion was performed more than one year after its onset and after a full course of stibogluconate sodium and the specimen showed multiple organisms in multinucleated giant cells as well as in(More)
Thirty-four patients (49 eyes) who had dissociated vertical deviation were treated with faden operation of Cüppers. The median follow-up period was 14 months. The operation produced good results in 23 of the patients, some improvement in seven, and did not help four. The posterior fixation suture was placed 14 mm behind the superior rectus muscle insertion(More)
One of the most distressing problems that one encounters is a large disfiguring squint persisting after repeated surgical interventions. This is usually the result of: (1) inadequate surgery, (2) an over looked A or V pattern or al~t ignored vertical muscle palsy, (3) a lost muscle, or (4) scar tissue. In this paper I shall only discuss scar tissue which(More)
