SETTING Dermatology and podiatry departments at a teaching hospital. PATIENTS Sixty-three adult men and women with a clinical examination highly suggestive of onychomycosis. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Sensitivity of each(More)
Child abuse by whiplash-shaking can lead to severe cerebral damage, neurological defects and mental retardation. Cerebral damage has been found with and without external evidence of head injury. We report the sonographic findings in two children after traumatization due to repetitive vigorous whiplash shaking. Cerebral sonography revealed cerebral edema at(More)
A prospective study including 63 adult Class II and Class III patients was carried out in order to examine short- and long-term effects of four different treatment methods on mandibular mobility. The patients were treated either (Group A, control-group) orthodontically alone or (Group B) by a LeFort I-osteotomy, a (Group C) mandibular advancement or (Group(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the hemodynamic effects of tolazoline and prostacyclin in infants with pulmonary vasospasm after cardiac surgery. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. SETTING Pediatric ICU. PATIENTS The cohort consisted of 42 infants and children with congenital heart disease and pulmonary hypertension who underwent corrective surgery and were(More)
Fifty-seven non-orthodontically treated young adults, judged as either clinically healthy or with only mild symptoms of TMJ-dysfunction, were divided into groups according to their sagittal molar relationship (Class I-, Class II-, and Class III-group).

In a practical setting, 4 different prophylactic methods were compared with regard to their effects on the incidence of decalcification during orthodontic fixed appliance therapy and on the frequency of premature debonding resulting from imminent or already manifest decalcification. This study showed that the use of a system in which selection and care were(More)
Recombinant human (rh) granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-SCF) is currently being tested in clinical trials for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemias with two main intentions: reduction of neutropenia and recruitment of leukemic blasts into cell cycle to enhance cytarabine (ara-C) mediated cytotoxicity. We report a case of a fatal(More)
The morphology of approximal enamel that has been stripped for therapeutic reasons was evaluated under the scanning electron microscope (SEM) twelve weeks and one year after treatment. In part one of the study the teeth were extracted before evaluation, in the second part replica were taken. For comparative reasons the morphology of the natural approximal(More)
In an in-vitro study the abrasive qualities of different orthodontic finishing strips were evaluated on the enamel surfaces of human teeth by means of a scanning electron microscope. As a result we can state that even the use of the finest finishing strip cannot eliminate the deep furrows that resulted from prior abrasion with a strip that is more coarse.(More)
