Balloons, Krazy Glue
cure girl's medical woes

NEW YORK - A 2-year-old girl
whose life was threatened by a
malformed blood vessel in her spine
has been cured by a series of operations
using balloons and a medical Krazy
glue, doctors said yesterday as she left
the hospital for home.
"WE NEVER thought she's get this
far," said Sally Zellner, 31, of Phoenix,
as her daughter , Carrie, was released
from New York University Medical
The youngest patient ever to undergo
this procedure in the spinal area,
Carrie now is cured after three
operations over six weeks, said Dr. In-
sup Choi, a member of the surgical
Choi said Carrie was born with an ar-
terial-venous malformation of her
spinal cord - in effect, a hole in a vein
in her upper spine through which blood
could flow directly into an artery.
THE ZELLNERS were not aware of
the problem. "She was, in our eyes,
perfectly normal," said Zellner.
Then, in April, Carrie fell out of her
carriage. She began to hemorrhage;
her mother revived her with mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation and took her to the
Doctors at Phoenix Children's
1 Hospital who examined the child
determined that the birth defect, not

the fall, was the cause of the bleeding.
In August, she hemorrhaged again, and
"we thought she was going to die," said
her mother.
WHEN SHE was brought to New
York in September, Choi said, blood
was flowing through the vein very
quickly, and it had swollen.
The pain, he said, was "severe." Her
right side weakened so much that she
could not raise her right hand; if
nothing had been done, and she sur-
vived hemorrhaging in the future, a
lack of blood to her right side would
have stunted her growth, Choi
To block the blood flow, doctors in-
flated a tiny latex balloon in the vein.
The they tried to plug the hole with an
injection of a compound which is

"basically Krazy Glue," Choi said. The
hole was not closed, but they decided
not to risk another operation.
Phoenix. But 10 days ago she
hemorrhaged again, and again she was
taken to New York.
A second glue injection was made,
this time closing the hole.
Before the operation, doctors who
placed a stethoscope to Carrie's neck
could hear the blood rushing through
the vein, like water rushing through
rapids, Choi said. After the surgery,
the noise stopped.
The pain also stopped, and there was
no need for the painkillers that had rob-
bed her of her natural vivacity. Her
right side remained weak, but Choi said
she would regain her strength and could
expect to lead a normal life.

Andrea Lucchesini - Liszt:
Piano Music (Angel EMI)
In a new Angel EMI Digital release,
19-year-old Tuscan pianist Andrea Luc-
chesini makes his debut recording with
an album of all Liszt piano music
including the b minor sonata, La
Campanella, Ricordanza, Hungarian
Rhapsody No. 6 and the 4th Grande
Etude de Paganini.
The album is actually a mixed bag of
results. At times the Italian pianist's
performances suffer from a lack of
emotion and a tendency to treat the
works as mere technical vehicles, when

there are real emotional melodic
"meat" and heartthrobbing moments.
Then, at other points Lucchesini is right
on target with rich, con passione
elements and perfectly brought out left
hand melodic treatment with right
hand accompaniment. This is clearly
evident at many points in the b minor
Sonata. His careful attention to detail
in the melodic recapitualtion in the end
of the piece was fabulous. Throughout
the album, his precise finger work,
especially with regard to the fiendishly
difficult thirds scattered throughout the
piece, is fascinatingly spellbinding.
The other items on the disc bring
mixed results also. Lucchesini
provided two very enjoyable accounts
of two of Liszt's Paganini Etudes,
which are also extraordinarily difficult.
The Paganini Etudes are a set of six
showpieces for the piano which Liszt
composed upon themes from
Paganini's Violin Caprices, which in
their own right are equally difficult for
the violinist. Lucchesini played No. 4
commonly called "La Chasse" and No.
3 the very well known "La Cam-
panella." Both were played with im-

peccable taste. "La Campanella" was
a very refreshing new interpretation,
which lifted by spirits about the piece.
He seemed to play it almost as if it were
a set of variations, in sections, instead
of as one long thread, which is how most
pianists play it. He took it at a slower
tempo, which was fine. It wasn't
because his technique couldn't afford to
play it fast, Lucchesini certainly
doesn'tthave a thing to worry about in
terms of technical problems. It was
more in order to provide an original,
unique approach which is very com-
mendable, needed and helpful in Liszt.
One only wishes that the Hungarian
Rhapsody No. 6 was a successful. It
wasn't, and it may very well be due to
the fact that the music is so hackneyed
and shallow, full of clicheed phrases
and musical statements. Lucchesini
performed again technically proficient,
however the overall taste was one of
lackluster music making. It was dry
and restrained emotionally.

One or two flubs really isn't enough to
damage the overall enjoyment of this
album for the listener. The Paganini
Etudes, and the "good" moments in the
Liszt Sonata are enough to provide
more than adequate enjoyment.

"I was very reclusive and always
'highly emotional," she once remakred
4I didn't feel I was allowed to express
it, so I would cry and scream in front of
"the mirror and be very sexy. Acting

Her electrifying performance as a
young woman with 16 different per-

"I'm a low-profile person," she said.
"There are times when I seem more
visible, but I'm probably as low-key as
anyone in the business.
"The times when I seem to be high

profile are when I'm promoting a pic-
ture," she continued. "But my real life
concerns my home and my kids. Like
most people, the things I like to do are
read a book, watch TV or go to the
movies and eat popcorn."
