We reviewed 150 patients who had common carotid ligations. All five patients who became hemiplegic at operation did badly following removal of the ligature and an early direct operation is suggested in those patients with reversible hemiplegia. Women, patients over 50, patients with spasm on angiography and those who were hypertensive did not have a significantly worse prognosis than men, those under 50, those without spasm on angiography and those who were normotensive. There was a significant difference in the outcome between the patients who received low-molecular-weight dextran and those who did not receive it and it is suggested that low-molecular-weight dextran is of value in patients having ligation of the common carotid artery.

    A number of arboviruses multiply in avian cells in tissue culture but fail to produce plaques in them when grown under an agar overlay. It has been shown that the addition of optimal amounts of DEAE dextran or of protamlne enables some such viruses to form clear-cut plaques to a high titre. The...
