He became energy was inexhaustible, and his collaboration a lecturer in anatomy at Columbia University in with Moore is an important landmark in the 1925 and ﬁnally discovered his calling in 1926, history of American orthopedic surgery. Bosworth made the New York area his home and orthope- dics his life’s work, to the beneﬁt of both. Bosworth joined the American Medical Association in 1921 and was chairman of its orthopedic section in 1949. A Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine, he served as chair- man of the orthopedic section in 1938. He was elected to head the orthopedic section of the Medical Society of the State of New York in 1943, and was a life member of the American College of Surgeons. In 1935 he became a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and he actively participated in meetings and instruc- tional courses. He was elected to membership of the American Orthopedic Association in 1939 and served as president of that organization in 1957. He was also active in the International Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology. Other honors conferred on him included membership David Marsh BOSWORTH of the Japanese Orthopedic Association, the 1897–1979 Howmet Hall of Fame Award, a Citation of Merit from St. Luke’s Hospital, and election to the Born in New York City on January 23, 1897, the Alpha Omega Alpha fraternity. Bosworth was son of a minister, David Bosworth attended City the only foreign recipient of the Japanese award, College of New York and graduated from the the Second Order of the Sacred Treasure, which 31 Who’s Who in Orthopedics was awarded to him in April 1968 for his contri- Perhaps best known for his work in the surgi- butions to orthopedic surgery.

He was also appointed to the Board of many a Sunday night was spent in his basement, Trustees of the Journal and served as treasurer for in a cloud of cigar smoke, with his staff, ironing his entire term as trustee. Many of his residents in Orthopedics at New York Polyclinic Medical can recall him quoting from memory during School, at Flower Fifth Avenue Medical School, long operations in the late afternoon—lengthy and as a lecturer in orthopedic surgery at passages from Hamlet or “Elegy in a Country Bellevue Medical College and the University Churchyard.

As a result, he has left us not only the fruits of his labors in the way of scientiﬁc accomplishment, but also the in- spiration that he so dynamically displayed during his lifetime. Through his efforts, surgery of the hand has been nourished and developed to the state of worldwide recognition it enjoys today. The acceptance of his scientiﬁc and surgical accomplishments came early, both in the United States and abroad, as evidenced by society mem- berships and awards. He was a licentiate of the American Boards of General, Plastic, and Ortho- pedic Surgery. He was an honorary member of the American Orthopedic Association, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the Western Orthopedic Association, the California Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Societal Latino-Americana Sir Stanford CADE de Ortopedia y Traumatologia, an honorary fellow of the British Orthopedic Association, 1895–1973 and a foreign corresponding member of the Societas Ortopedica Scandinavica. Petersburg, member of the American Surgical Association, received his early schooling in Antwerp, and American Association of Plastic Surgeons, entered the Medical School of the University of American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Brussels in 1913.

In the same year, on the resignation of Sir James Paget, he was elected Surgeon to St. Bartholomew’s Hos- pital and Examiner in Surgery to the University of Cambridge. He practiced in Queen Anne Street and held the appointments of Surgeon to the Charterhouse and Professor of Anatomy at the College of Surgeons. He claimed that septicemia was almost unknown in his wards and, though he did not refer to Lister’s theories of asepsis, the principle of his treatment was, in fact, a modiﬁed Listerism. His last publication, on “The Avoid- ance of Pain,” was delivered to the Section on Surgery at the Bath meeting of the British Medical Association.

Others conceptualize glossolalia as a form of automatic speech, usually of a pseudo-language which may be mistaken for a foreign tongue. Such happenings may occur in trance- like states, or in pathological states, such as schizophrenia. London: Arnold, 2001: 237-240 “Glove and Stocking” Sensory Loss Sensory loss, to all or selected modalities, confined to the distal parts of the limbs (“glove and stocking”) implies the presence of a periph- eral sensory neuropathy. If the neuropathy involves both sensory and motor fibers, motor signs (distal weakness, reflex diminution or loss) may also be present. Cross References Neuropathy Goosebumps - see ANSERINA Gordon’s Sign Gordon’s sign is an extensor plantar response in response to squeezing the calf muscles, also called the paradoxical flexor response. As with Chaddock’s sign and Oppenheim’s sign, this reflects an expansion of the receptive field of the reflex. Cross References Babinski’s sign (1); Plantar response Gowers’ Sign Gowers’ sign is a characteristic maneuver used by patients with proxi- mal lower limb and trunk weakness to rise from the ground. From the lying position, the patient rolls to the kneeling position, pushes on the ground with extended forearms to lift the hips and straighten the legs, so forming a triangle with the hips at the apex with hands and feet on the floor forming the base (known in North America as the “butt-first maneuver”). Then the hands are used to push on the knees and so lift up the trunk (“climbing up oneself”). This sign was originally described by Gowers in the context of Duchenne muscular dystrophy but may be seen in other causes of proximal leg and trunk weakness, e. Gowers was not the first to describe the sign; Bell had reported it almost 50 years before Gowers’ account.

Loss of this ability (agraphesthesia, dysgraphesthesia, or graphanesthesia; sometimes referred to as agraphognosia) is typically observed with parietal lobe lesions, for example in conditions such as corticobasal degeneration. Such a cortical sensory syndrome may also cause astereognosis and impaired two-point discrimination.

Once established, the patient is unable to release the grip (forced grasping), allowing the examiner to draw the arm away from the patient’s body. There may also be accom- panying groping movements of the hand, once touched, in search of the examiner’s hand or clothing (forced groping, magnetic movement). Although categorized a reflex, it may sometimes be accessible to mod- ification by will (so-called alien grasp reflex). The grasp reflex may be categorized as a frontal release sign (or primitive reflex) of prehensile type, since it is most commonly associ- ated with lesion(s) in the frontal lobes or deep nuclei and subcortical white matter.

Neurogenic constipation further com- pounds the problem of bowel movement management in MM generic 10mg lexapro fast delivery. The goal is regular buy cheap lexapro 10mg, predictable 5 mg lexapro mastercard, fecal evacuation in a manner that is acceptable and efﬁcient for the patient and family discount 5mg lexapro otc. In the ﬁrst few years of life purchase 5mg lexapro otc, the focus is on stool consisten- cy=bulk. First step interventions include the use of suppositories and enemas, along with stool softening and bulking agents. Evacuations should be done on the toilet to enhance later toilet training. Periodic bowel cleanouts may be required using either high volume enemas or osmotic solutions (Go-Lytely or others) delivered via naso- gastric tube. As the child becomes more independent, these procedures become less acceptable. The MACE procedure, which creates an abdominal conduit into the cecum for the delivery of high volume ﬂuids to the colon, has been very beneﬁcial in producing fecal continence. Cognition=Behavior=Family A detailed discussion of development, cognition, behavior, and mental health of chil- dren with MMC is beyond the scope of this chapter. Mental retardation is present in about one-third of children with MMC; generally in the mild range (IQ 55–70). Indi- viduals with normal intelligence and shunted hydrocephalus often have visual-motor and perceptional defects that lead to poor school performance. Behavioral and emo- tional issues are critical to the optimum functional outcome of an individual and need to be a component of all treatment plans. The impact of this condition on family functioning over the lifespan of the affected individual is profound and requires careful monitoring with interventions as needed; ideally from multiple perspectives in a longitudinal and coordinated manner. HOLOPROSENCEPHALY Holoprosencephaly (HPE) is another complex developmental malformation of the central nervous system that can lead to severe–profound impairment of global neu- rological function. The HPE is associated with two fundamental abnormalities; underhemispherization of the brain and cerebral underdevelopment with resultant microcephaly. The problems of HPE are typically more severe than those in MMC and include severe to profound cognitive impairment, oromotor dysfunction severe enough to inhibit growth and development, endocrine dysfunction, seizures, autonomic dysregulation (especially temperature instability), and disorders of motor tone. A motor dysfunction syndrome, classiﬁable as a mixed cerebral palsy, is usually present. Higher levels of neurological function can be seen, particularly in milder forms of HPE. Occasionally hydrocephalus is observed, even in the setting of severe microcephaly, and the presence of deteriorating function should prompt obtaining a head CT. Conﬁrming the Diagnosis The HPE is classiﬁed into three major types, although some investigators include a fourth type or middle interhemispheric fusion variant (MIHF). The most severe form, alobar HPE is characterized by a complete lack of cerebral hemispherization, Management of Myelomeningocele and Holoprosencephaly 11 resulting in a mono ‘‘hemisphere’’ with a single ventricle, and no evidence of an interhemispheric ﬁssure. Deep cerebral structures, such as the caudate, putamen, and lentiform nuclei, are also fused due to a lack of midline brain structures. The severity and extent of this anatomic underdevelopment correlate roughly with the severity of functional impairment. The milder semilobar and milder still lobar HPE are characterized by lesser degrees of midline underdevelopment in a caudal to rostral gradient. The MIHF variant involves nonhemispherization of just the region of brain adjacent to the Rolandic ﬁssure. Its characteristic MRI ﬁnding is underdevelopment or absence of the body of the corpus callosum with a seam of gray matter across the midline. The cerebral cortex rostral and caudal to the seam are either normal or exhibit neuronal migration defects. Misdiagnosis is common, since interpretation of neuroimaging (from fetal ultrasound to postnatal MRI) has tended to focus on ventricular architecture rather than on the presence of midline noncleavage of gray matter structures. For conﬁrma- tion of HPE, there must be some degree of cerebral hemispheric nonseparation (non- cleavage). Many cases of alobar and semilobar HPE are accompanied by the presence of a dorsal cyst in the caudal most part of the supratentorial compartment. Additionally, most cases of HPE are associated with signiﬁcant reductions in brain mass and microcephaly, unless hydrocephalus is present.
