Intercarpal coalitions are well-known but poorly documented entities, resulting from incomplete cavitation of a common embryologic carpal precursor during the fourth to eighth weeks of intrauterine life. At our institution we have collected a series of 36 cases of carpal coalition in 24 persons. We found the condition to be much more common in American(More)
A retrospective study was done on a consecutive series of patients who had revision of a femoral hip prosthesis using a titanium-alloy implant with proximal fibermesh pads. Of 28 patients who had revision using a Harris-Galante (Zimmer, Warsaw, IN) femoral prosthesis between 1985 and 1989, 25 of them (25 hip arthroplasties) were followed for an average of(More)
Scleredema of Buschke is a rare disorder characterized by the development of areas of skin induration which usually resolve spontaneously. It is occasionally associated with a benign gammopathy, and rarely with myelomatosis. We describe a 60-year-old woman with extensive skin changes, who developed IgA myeloma. Unusually, her skin disease did not respond to(More)
The role of the renin--angiotensin system in the maintenance of blood pressure during halothane anesthesia and sodium nitroprusside (SNP)-induced hypotension was evaluated. Control rats received halothane anesthesia (1 MAC) for one hour, followed by SNP infusion, 40 microgram/kg/min, for 30 min, followed by a 30-min recovery period. A second group of rats(More)
There have been encouraging reports of symptomatic improvement in patients with low back pain following injection of a mixture of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid into the lumbar epidural space. However, there is a lack of animal or human studies which examined possible long-term effects of this combination on the exposed neural tissues. This study(More)
Remeshing is an important problem in variety of applications, such as finite element methods and geometry processing. Surface remeshing poses some unique challenges, as it must deliver not only good mesh quality but also good geometric accuracy. For applications such as finite elements with high-order elements (quadratic or cubic elements), the geometry(More)
