To compare the results of epineurial and intrafascicular perineurial nerve repair techniques, ulnar nerves of 20 domestic cats were severed proximal to the medical humeral epicondyle. One nerve was repaired with No.8-O nylon by standard epineurial technique with the aid of three to five magnifications; the other nerve was repaired with No. 10-O nylon by(More)
Twenty-three patients with severe open tibial fractures complicated by established deep infection and delay or failure of union were treated with posterior tibial bone-grafting.

Spider capture silk is a natural material that outperforms almost any synthetic material in its combination of strength and elasticity. The structure of this remarkable material is still largely unknown, because spider-silk proteins have not been crystallized. Capture silk is the sticky spiral in the webs of orb-weaving spiders. Here we are investigating(More)
This study investigated whether teeth and dorsal fin spines could be used as non-lethal methods of age estimation for a vulnerable and highly valued tropical fisheries species, coral trout Plectropomus leopardus. Age estimation of individuals from 2 to 9 years old revealed that dorsal spines represent an accurate ageing method (90% agreement with otoliths)(More)
A 70-year-old female developed hemorragic neuropathy, involving the sciatic, femoral and obturator nerves, secondary to infection and trauma. Function returned adequately in one year in the manner of neuropraxia. Hemorrhagic neuropathy of the proximal lower extremity has been associated with hemophilia, anticoagulation therapy, trauma, hip surgery and(More)
