FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1973 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 15 Doctor Alvarez Dr. Walter C. Alvarez is emeritus consultant in medicine. of the Mayo Clinic and emeritus professor of medicine of the Mayo Foundation. 1 Hare lip In -a, release from the University' of Southern California, I read about the clinic in Ran- chp' Los Amigos in Downey, near Los Angeles. Specialists work with handicapped children -- plastic surgeons, children's specialists, expert dentists, nose and throat specialists, speech therapists, psychologists, also social workers and people who can teach the children -to/talk and 'to overcome the emotional and' psy-, chological '"needs associated with this handicap. Today, a hare lip can be closed surgically. Sometimes there is also a cleft in the palate (roof of the mouth). In this case, the child talks in a peculiar way. Sometimes a device must be fitted into the roof of the mouth to close the cleft, so that when a child uses a straw the liquid won't go up into his nose. At Rancho Los Amigos, social workers usually work with .'parents as soon as an abnormality in a child is discovered because it is distressing to parents to realize that they have a defective child. ' The first surgical procedure is:tp clpse.tlre. cleft lip. This is tiMie-'':as;rjsoon ''as the child welghs$ito'|K)unds. Later, plastic · sfi|gtry ;;c3n make the lip closure?, ^practically . undetec- ' : ' '· · If the soft palate (roof of the mouth) is open so that air can;not be! .directed either orally or nasally ""to produce' speech, surgery to close the.' soft palate usuaUjr; is^performed at abou£i8?ffiontiis; it -then may be possible for' the ; child to talk, but he will need a speech therapist',- to help? overcome speech abnormalities. Hearing difficulties may result from a cleft palate if the eustacnian tubes (which stabilize air pressure between the throat and the inner ear) become clogged. The person also can get middle-ear infections which can pioduce some heating loss. Sterilisation A while ago, a few. doctors feared that vasectomy (the tying of the tubes that run from the testes to the urinary bladder) could produce diseases. Soon, a number of other. physicians said they had never seen any such disaster, and could see no reason for fear. · In the ' American Medical News, published by the American Medical Association, Dr. William 'R.i Barclay said, "At the present time there is no epidemiological evidence that vasectomy can predispose a person to ..any 'disease. /There is no experimental evidence in the field of immunity to indicate that 'vasectomy might cause any., sorcalled auto-immune disease." · ··';, By auto-immune 'disease, we mean that a body turns against an organ or tissue and attempts/to ^destroy it as if it were a virus. Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease. - · . - ' · · ' Dr. Joseph E.' Davis, president of;; the Association .for Voluntary · Sterilization, said "No harmful effects have ever been proved to be due to vasectomy." · Dr. Alvarez gives information about symptoms, possible causes and efforts at treating MS in his booklet, "Multiple (Disseminated) Sclerosis."
