The authors studied the usefulness of hydrogen-1 T2 measurements and phosphorus-31 magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy as indicators of prognosis and monitors of response to therapy in a group of patients with soft-tissue sarcomas. All eight patients were treated with combined local hyperthermia and fractionated radiation therapy, followed by surgical(More)
Regional variations in metabolic parameters derived with multivoxel, localized phosphorus-31 magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy in spontaneous human-soft-tissue sarcomas were compared with variations in the same parameters in normal human legs. In addition, multivoxel P-31 MR spectroscopy of transplanted rodent sarcomas and microelectrode measurement of(More)
Autism, a neurobiological condition, having its origin in the disturbance of the cellular structure of the brain during pregnancy, at birth, affects 1 child in 100 according to the latest worldwide statistics. The condition affects boys, in a ratio of 4:1 more than girls. Generally speaking there is no “cure” for children on the Autism Disorder Syndrome and(More)

IN all the operations commonly performed for obstruction of the nasolacrimal duct, the side of the sac, and not the end, is used for the anastomosis (Fig. 1). The medial wall of the sac is incised vertically over the greater part of its extent to provide the anterior and posterior flaps. This radically alters the anatomy and destroys any chance of pumping(More)
DESPITE regional blocks, retro-bulbar injections, and pre-operative barbiturate sedation, intra-ocular surgery can still be a hazardous procedure. Apprehension and the accompanying general increase in muscle tone which enhance the risks of such operations as intra-capsular cataract extraction are only partially overcome by these methods. General(More)
