Authors have studied the effect of Gordox-therapy on haemostasis after open heart surgery in a prospective clinical trial. Thirty seven patients (pts) undergoing cardiac surgery due to their valve disease were randomly assigned either to control-group (20 pts) or to Gordox-group (17 pts). The patients in the Gordox group were given Gordox according the(More)
We have studied the anatomical findings at operation on 67 patients with De Quervain's disease, 5% of whom had bilateral lesions, compared with published series of cadaveric dissections. There was division with a septum in the extensor compartment in 60%. The abductor pollicis longus had more than one tendon in 76% and extensor pollicis brevis was(More)
