At the present time, syndesmotic screw fixation is recommended when there is a tibiofibular diastasis, a Maisonneuve fracture, or syndesmotic instability after fixation of distal tibia-fibula fractures. The aim/purpose of this study was to demonstrate the optimal level of syndesmotic screw placement before creation of a Maisonneuve fracture. Legs of 17(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether implementation of a therapeutic hypothermia protocol on arrival in a community hospital improved survival and neurologic outcomes in patients initially found to have ventricular fibrillation, pulseless electrical activity, or asystole, and then successfully resuscitated from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. DESIGN A(More)
Cardiac changes often culminating in cardiac failure are at times a dramatic cause of death in patients of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. These changes are probably invariable in such cases though they may escape detection in early stages by clinical examination or radiological investigation. Electrocardiography serves as a sensitive, non-invasive and(More)
BACKGROUND Angiotensin II may prove useful in treating regional anesthesia-induced hypotension in obstetric patients, because it causes less uterine vasoconstriction than do other vasoconstrictor drugs (such as phenylephrine). This study compared (1) maternal blood pressure and heart rate and (2) fetal status at delivery in parturients given either(More)
Paroxysmal facial neuralgia, typified by classical tic douloureux, may be secondary to intermittent compression of the trigeminal nerve by pulsating vascular structures. The critical area of compression, at least for producing true trigeminal neuralgia, is felt to be the dorsal root entry zone. One case of paroxysmal facial neuralgia, secondary to more(More)
OBJECTIVE In this case report the authors discuss a technique occasionally employed at their institution to aid in identification of the epidural space in morbidly obese parturients. CASE REPORT A 29-year-old primagravida, with a body mass index of 90 (155 cm tall, 215 kg) presented for induction of labor. A 27-ga. Sprotte spinal needle was intentionally(More)
681 Background: Differentiating primary breast tumors that are prone to develop metastasis (Group-I) from those that are not (Group-II) is critical to design appropriate treatments. Previously we isolated several metastasis associated DNA sequences (MADSs) and recently published that MADS-IX and -XI are informative in more than 60% of cases by PCR(More)
We evaluated the efficacy of Compound R emulsion on wound contraction in fuzzy rats. While the rats were under anesthesia, two mirror-image burn wounds were inflicted on the depilated back skin of each. Wounds were assigned randomly to treatment or placebo (oil), and the wound-scar areas were measured when they healed. A second set of wounds was created by(More)
