The distance covered in 12 minutes' walking was used to test exercise tolerance in chronic bronchitis. The distance covered bore a poor relation to the forced expiratory volume in 1 second but a significant relation to the forced vital capacity and the maximum oxygen consumption and ventilation on a bicycle ergometer. The test may be a simple practical(More)
Thirty-seven children with fresh, displaced (more than 2 mm in any direction) fractures of the lateral condyle of the humerus were treated by open reduction and internal fixation with a partially threaded 4.0-mm diameter AO lag screw. They were reviewed at a mean follow-up of 4.8 years. Painless, full-elbow movements were obtained in 36 cases. Delayed(More)
A new radiographic angle, the medial epicondylar epiphyseal (MEE) angle, was studied in 100 anteroposterior (AP) radiographs of normal children aged 3-12 years. The mean value was 38.2 degrees +/- 4.17 degrees (SD) (range 25 degrees-46 degrees), and the MEE angle could be drawn satisfactorily in 96 radiographs. The MEE angle did not vary significantly from(More)
The results of 64 membranes diffusing capacity (Dm) and pulmonary capillary blood volume (Vc) estimations were analysed to assess the clinical significance of these measurements. These estimations were performed on 18 healthy subjects, 19 patients with mitral valvular involvement of rheumatic aetiology, 15 patients with chronic bronchitis and emphysema, 8(More)
Eighty-one patients with comminuted femoral shaft fractures were treated by closed unlocked Küntscher nailing and functional cast bracing for 1 to 4 weeks postoperatively depending on the degree of comminution. The mean follow-up period was 27.6 months. The average time required for fracture healing was 14 weeks. There was one delayed union. One fracture(More)
Twenty-four men with chronic bronchitis participated in a controlled trial of a physical training scheme. The training involved progressive stair-climbing exercises carried out over a three-month period unsupervised at home. The twelve men in the exercise group benefited significantly in terms of general well-being and reduced breathlessness. Their exercise(More)
Left ventricular filling pressures as reflected by pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) were measured in 20 adult subjects of chronic severe anemia before and after transfusing one unit of blood. The cases were divided into two groups of ten each. In both groups blood was transfused at a speed of 5 ml/mt; group II cases received, in addition, 40 mg(More)
