Of 212 patients undergoing total hip replacement who were tested preoperatively for sensitivity to nickel, chromium, and cobalt, fourteen showed sensitivity. No sensitivity to the bone cement was recorded. Of 173 patients who had never had a metal implant before, 5.8 per cent showed a positive reaction. Two patients out of fifteen with a failed McKee-Farrar(More)
In 1988 we reported a ten-year review of 83 surviving patients from a group of 135 (146 prostheses) who had undergone primary hip replacement using the Stanmore prosthesis. We have now reviewed 44 of these patients at 15 to 16 years. Four patients had undergone revision, but the other 40 were all satisfied with the result of their hip replacement, 36 having(More)
A current debate on the surgical management of patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) focuses largely on primary repair vs initial shunt in younger and/or smaller patients. To characterize practice patterns throughout the United States with respect to the choice of initial surgical procedure in patients with TOF, we analyzed data from a multicenter(More)
From a series of 135 patients (146 prostheses) who had had primary hip replacement in 1975 and 1976 we reported the outcome at ten years in 83 surviving patients in 1988 and that at 15 years in 44 surviving patients in 1994. Now, 22 years after the operation, we have reviewed the 21 patients who are still alive. Nineteen (20 hips) of these 21 patients (22(More)
Ebstein anomaly is a rare congenital heart defect that most often occurs sporadically within a kindred. Familial cases, although reported, are uncommon. At this time, the genetic etiology of Ebstein anomaly is not fully elucidated. Here, we describe clinical and molecular investigations of a rare case of familial Ebstein anomaly in association with a likely(More)
Between February 1975 and August 1976, 195 total hip replacements using Stanmore components were performed; of these, 146 were in 135 patients who had not had previous hip surgery. At review 52 had died, but none of the others was lost to follow-up. Of the 52, two had had a second operation, one for infection and one for recurrent dislocation. In the(More)
Pemphigus vegetans was diagnosed in a 12-year-old boy based on clinical, histopathological and immunohistological findings. To our knowledge, this is the first case of juvenile pemphigus vegetans to be published in the literature. Suggested treatment with prednisone and azathioprine was refused, and the patient was treated with a decoction of herbs(More)
Sixty-six patients who had to undergo total hip replacement by means of a metal-to-plastic Stanmore prosthesis, were patch-tested prior to and 6 to 12 months after surgery with the standard ICDRG all allergens series and with acrylic monomer 5% in acetone. In 62 patients the history of metal allergy as well as the patch tests to all tested allergens were(More)
We present a case of congenital complete atrioventricular block in a preterm microcephalic male with multiple additional congenital anomalies, including spinal and rib abnormalities. The heart was structurally normal, and maternal tests for autoimmune disorders were negative. The brain had an immature lissencephalic appearance, suggestive of an insult early(More)
