In an experimental animal study using rabbits, growth phenomena were simulated which are comparable to craniosynostosis in humans. The radiological and histological findings after surgical management of these artificial craniosynostosis by means of strip ostectomy or radical ostectomy were compared with the findings obtained in control animals. Following strip ostectomy, ...

Successful pharmacological arrest of haemorrhage might avoid the risk of aspiration associated with tamponade and early studies have suggested that the vasoactive agent somatostatin may be as effective and perhaps safer than tamponade in controlling variceal haemorrhage. In our view, vasopressin has not established a role in management but we ...

Managing COSHH is like managing anything else: define the issues; evaluate the priorities; select management options; implement them and monitor the outcome. In COSHH terms this means inventories, assessments, control measures and auditing.

Tetanus is often accompained by autonomic instability, rendering hemodynamic management difficult. Death is frequently secondary to an inability to control this instability.

In any organization, the manager's bosses, peers, and subordinates--in return for their active support--impose some requirements, just as he imposes upon them some of his own where they are drawing upon his support. These demands on him constitute so much of the manager's time that successful leadership hinges on his ...
