Slow arm movements were made over a smooth horizontal table at shoulder height. With visual cues excluded, target position was indicated by the index finger of the nonmoving arm touching the underside of the table. 11 students (mean age 21.9 yr.) and 24 children (mean age 10.3 yr.) were compared. Both groups showed an 'overlap effect': movements with the(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the phenotypes and penetrance of paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD), a movement disorder characterized by attacks of involuntary movements occurring after sudden movements, infantile convulsion and choreoathetosis (ICCA) syndrome, and benign familial infantile convulsions (BFIC), caused by PRRT2 mutations. METHODS We performed(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE High energy (20-50 MeV) electron beams, available from the MM50 Racetrack Microtron, can be used for the treatment of deep-seated tumors. A disadvantage is the increasing penumbra width as a function of depth. By the addition of a narrow (typically 1 cm wide) photon beam near the field edge, the 50-90% penumbra width of the electron(More)
Transurethral laser coagulation of the prostate has become an accepted treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The most common method is the use of a sideward-firing fiber that, once inserted in the prostatic area, irradiates the abundant prostatic tissue with Nd:YAG laser light. In this study, eight different side-firing fibers that are(More)
Prolonged clotting times were observed in a patient with spontaneous hemorrhage. Analysis showed severe factor X deficiency due to clearance by a noninhibitory antibody. Lymphadenopathy identified on imaging led to diagnosis of marginal B-cell lymphoma. Treatment of lymphoma with rituximab and chlorambucil resulted in complete disappearance of the bleeding(More)
OBJECTIVE Neonatal early-onset infection is a life-threatening disease, requiring early diagnosis and treatment. Newborns at risk are identified by a combination of risk factors, clinical signs of infection and laboratory parameters such as white blood cell count and C-reactive protein (CRP). This method is labor-intensive, time consuming and has a variable(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the influence of the electrosurgical generator on the vaporization efficacy during electrovaporization (EVAP) using different vaporization elements. METHODS Electrical properties of human prostatic (in vivo) and bovine myocardium (in vitro) tissue were measured under electroresection and electrovaporization conditions. The effective(More)
