The tau tangle ligand (18)F-AV-1451 ((18)F-T807) binds to neuromelanin in the midbrain, and may therefore be a measure of the pigmented dopaminergic neuronal count in the substantia nigra. Parkinson's disease is characterized by progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons. Extrapolation of post-mortem data predicts that a ∼30% decline of nigral dopamine(More)
BACKGROUND Alzheimer's disease copathology is common in PD at autopsy. In non-PD subjects with mild cognitive impairment, tau depositions can be detected using 18F-AV-1451 PET. We hypothesized that 18F-AV-1451 PET would show tau aggregation in PD with mild cognitive impairment and correlate with cognitive dysfunction. OBJECTIVES To describe tau(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Guidelines recommend carotid endarterectomy (CEA) within 2 weeks from an ischemic event. However, previous studies have shown that only a minority of patients undergo CEA within this period. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of a multidisciplinary nationwide initiative aimed at reducing time to CEA after acute ischemic(More)
In 61 cases of spontaneous pneumothorax treated with thoracotomy and pleurodesis, sometimes with resection of bullous lung tissue, the records were reviewed. There were few postoperative complications and no treatment-requiring recurrences. The postoperative drainage time was significantly longer in patients with, than in those without, chronic obstructive(More)
The effect of initial elective arterial reconstructive surgery was evaluated in relation to employment and social status. Ninety patients with intermittent claudication were followed for a period of 3.5 years. The male to female ratio was 1:12. At the time of operation, all the patients were under the age of 60 years and potentially professionally active.(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of intraarterial low-dose recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) in patients with acute or subacute thrombosis of the native arterial system or in an arterial artificial or venous by-pass graft. Twenty patients with 22 cases of thrombosis received intraarterial thrombolysis during the period(More)
AIM The Danish Vascular Registry (DVR), Karbase, is monitoring arterial and advanced vein interventions conducted at all vascular departments in Denmark. The main aim of the DVR is to improve the quality of treatment for patients undergoing vascular surgery in Denmark by using the registry for quality assessment and research. STUDY POPULATION All patients(More)
Twenty-one profundaplasties were performed as the only reconstructive procedure. All of the patients had severe ischemia of the lower extremity with serious symptoms, such as rest pain or gangrene, or both. There was no postoperative mortality. Two patients had a crural amputation, and one patient, a femoral amputation performed during the first three(More)
