Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) was employed using nasal prongs in 30 neonates with hyaline membrane disease (HMD). There was a significant improvement in mean PaO2 (from 47 to 80 mmHg;p less than 0.001) with no significant change in PaCO2 or pH within a mean 36 min of therapy. Use of the technique allowed reduction of FiO2 to less than 0.60 in(More)
A review of the described methods of attachment of flexor tendon grafts to the distal phalanx is presented. The authors advocate the previously described method of attachment consisting of passage of the tendon graft through the pulp with anchorage to the nail. A new modification of this technique is presented, facilitating accurate dissection and placement(More)
