AIM To describe developmental aspects of the sympatho-vagal heart rate regulation in the human fetus by applying numerics to visual descriptions of fetal heart rate patterns throughout the third trimester of pregnancy. The focus is to determine potential benefits of this alternative means of assessing the maturation of the fetal autonomic nervous system by(More)
BACKGROUND Steroid administration to accelerate fetal lung maturation reduces neonatal morbidity and mortality in the case of preterm delivery. Behavioral observations suggest effects on fetal cardiovascular regulation. AIM We hypothesize that beat to beat heart rate variability (fHRV) derived from fetal magnetocardiography (fMCG) will reveal a direct,(More)
Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) remains a major problem in perinatal medicine because of the variety of its underlying causes and the prediction of its outcome. Characteristics of heartbeat interval patterns are associated with neuro-vegetative and humoral regulatory processes. Fetal magnetocardiography allows non-invasive assessment of these(More)
Histological analysis of the remodelling process of human hamstring tendon (HT) grafts after standardized anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) with an accelerated rehabilitation protocol. Sixty-seven patients underwent retrieval of mid-substance biopsies after clinically successful hamstring autograft ACLR. Samples were allocated to one of three(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of subgingival scaling versus subgingival pocket irrigation with 0.1% chlorhexidine or saline controls on the repopulation of subgingival periodontal sites with disease-associated micro-organisms following a single procedure of scaling and root planing. Additionally, pertinent clinical parameters(More)
Objective: Determine whether amniotic fluid volume (AFV) determination by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be compared with ultrasound based amniotic fluid index (AFI) and whether diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) of the fetal kidneys can be used as surrogate marker for the assessment of AFV and fetal kidney function. Methods: In the period from August(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the benefits of an initial periodontal therapy consisting of a single subgingival root debridement procedure followed by repeated monthly subgingival irrigations over a period of 6 months in 23 patients with multiple advanced periodontal lesions. The clinical and microbiological data of the test group indicated that(More)
