On global assessment after one month of start of therapy, 19 (95%) out of 20 patients treated with ketoconazole shampoo were cured while one case had mild residual(More)
AIM To evaluate the functional and radiological outcome of primary total hip replacement (THR) using modular total hip system at 2-10 years follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS The cohort comprised 100 operated cases for total hip replacement using modular hip system, with an average follow-up of 6.02 years ranging from 2-10 years. In 61 cases cemented THR,(More)
To measure the potency of pancuronium at the diaphragm and adductor pollicis in infants and children, train-of-four stimulation was applied to the ulnar and phrenic nerves under N2O-halothane anesthesia. The force of contraction of the adductor pollicis was measured and compared with the diaphragmatic electromyogram (EMG). Cumulative dose response curves(More)
UNLABELLED Dislocation of the head of the radius may be either congenital, an isolated injury or more commonly part of a complex injury to the elbow such as the Monteggia fracturedislocation.
