Between 1962 and 1976, a one-stage surgical procedure was performed on 328 cases of cleft lip and palate or isolated cleft palate. From 1977 to 1986, a two-stage surgical procedure was performed on 192 patients. After one-stage repair, 22 (6.7%) required a pharyngeal flap at the age of 6 years, and 13 (7%) required a flap after two-stage repair. When the(More)
Using the experiences achieved by experimental studies on cauliflower ear, protruding ears have been operated on with a technique involving the neochondrogenic potential of the perichondrium. The underdeveloped or absent conchoscaphal angle is restored to a normal antihelix in a posterior approach by a perichondrioplasty, gently folding the cartilage. The(More)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) stimulates normal neutrophil function both in vitro and in vivo Stimulation was also achieved by subcutaneous administration of HA to patients with extreme susceptibility to bacterial infections. Clinical improvement of some patients was obtained in connection to the administration. It is premature at this time to conclude any(More)
In five patients with long-standing facial palsy we have tried to improve the possibility of elevating the angle of the mouth by bringing regenerating axons from the facial nerve on the normal side through a sural nerve graft to a transplanted free muscle in the paralyzed cheek. In order to expect clinical improvement a sufficient number of axons must grow(More)
Functional recovery after nerve lesions seems to depend on peripheral as well as central factors. To investigate the central neuronal loss after transsection of a pure motor nerve, the middle branch of the facial nerve on one side was transsected and immediately repaired microsurgically by epineural suturing. After a period of 6-15 months, a quantitative(More)
Because it is difficult to estimate the extent of deep tissue injury clinically, angiography was carried out in 28 patients with signs of damage from current flow through the body. Eight of the arteriograms showed normal extremities, 6 showed changes of small arteries, and 38 showed injury to the main arteries. In the latter group there were 24 total(More)
A human fibrin glue was used in patients with burns for fixation of skin grafts on slightly infected wounds in the axillas, perineum, and the gluteal folds. These areas had been left open after previous skin transplantations. There was stable and safe adhesion and little inflammatory reaction between the graft and the recipient area, resulting in favorable(More)
The argon laser is now a well-established method of treating port-wine stains (PWS) in the face and neck areas. Satisfactory results are reported in 44 to 75 percent of cases, but criteria for that classification and the patients' perceptions of the result are seldom given. In the present paper, a sample of 58 patients was used to assess the patients' own(More)
To evaluate electrically stimulated muscle grafts for augmenting ventricular function in cardiac insufficiency, dynamic cardiomyoplasty was performed in nine sheep, using latissimus dorsi (LD) muscle wrapped as a pedicle around the left ventricle. Beginning 2 weeks postoperatively, LD was stimulated synchronously with the heart. After 6 and 12 weeks of(More)
The formation of neuromuscular junctions in free heterotopic muscle transplants in the rat has been studied quantitatively and compared with the reinnervation of the muscle in situ. The AChE-containing area and the nerve terminal were stained in the same longitudinal section and the length of end-plate, the average number of nerve terminal branch points(More)
