Microwaves were used to induce chorioretinal scar formation in normal rabbit eyes. We have developed a directional 6.8-gigahertz microwave applicator with a rectangular aperture. It was designed to mimic the shape and function of a T-shaped scleral depressor For many years, only two methods of epilation for the permanent destruction of the hair root were available: electrolysis and diathermy. Both methods were found to be effective [4]. However, since epilation by diathermy acts more rapidly and was found by most patients

Objective To evaluate the benefits, as well as the possible complications, of the use of diathermy scissors in parotid gland surgery. Design Prospective study of the surgical procedures of the diathermy scissors and a retrospective comparison with a In No. 6: 217-219 of your Journal, the paper" Diathermy haemorrhoidectomy", by HI Sharif, Ling Lee and J. Alexander-Williams describes very satisfactorily our technique, which we have been using for thirty years. We would like to make some comments on it. In their Abstract The effects of monopolar and bipolar diathermy systems were studied in 12 male Sprague-Dawley rats. Fulguration was achieved by application of a standard current (13 W for 1 s) on the foreskin. Tissue damage was assessed by light microscopy. Results As early as 1887, Wagner-Jauregg had observed that following fever produced by attacks of some intereurrent disease such as typhoid fever or pneumonia, patients suffering from general paralysis frequently showed clinical improvement. These observations led to
