Twenty-seven patients in whom a diagnosis of sinus of Valsalva aneurysm had been made during life were re-examined and the results have been evaluated. The clinical symptoms are not diagnostic. Routine radiological examination may also fail to show any significant findings. Large sinus of Valsalva aneurysms may show an atypical prominence of the right upper(More)
1. A new method of destroying thrombi in blood vessels by ultrasound and simultaneously removing them is reported. 2. Experiments were performed in twenty dogs with artificial thrombi in the iliac and femoral arteries and veins. The length of the thrombi ranged from 4 to 5 cm and the age from 12 h to 10 days. The unit used consisted of a generator, a(More)
A new method of thrombotic material by ultrasound is reported. Preliminary experiments first showed that it is possible to destroy fresh thrombi of different size and to remove them simultaneously. With the same method thrombi of the vena iliaca communis of the dog were completely removed. Till now, important and limiting side-effects were not seen Es wurde(More)
By ultrasound it is possible to destroy thrombi intravascular and remove them by a hollow flexible probe at the same time. Experiments were now performed in 6 dogs with 2-9 days old thromboses in the femoral or iliac veins, to detect embolisation during ultrasound-thrombolysis. Parameters were pulmonary angiograms and lung scans. Only in one dog with a(More)
Intravenous digital subtraction angiography is often used for evaluation of the extracranial and major intracranial vessels. The information obtained by this examination concerning cerebral perfusion is usually judged visually. In 50 patients a time-density curve at a specific point was analysed using 128 X 128 matrix. The level of grey scale at the moment(More)
Dynamic cerebral scintigraphy is a widely used, non-invasive procedure for the diagnosis of haemodynamic changes in the supra-aortic arterial territory. Eighty examinations have been carried out using a new method, which depends on demonstrating the time of arrival of the bolus within certain parameters. A definite advantage of the simultaneous(More)
