The purpose of this study was to characterize the outcome of attempted endovascular intervention in patients with acute embolic or thrombotic superior mesenteric artery (SMA) occlusion. The records of 21 patients during a 3-year period between 2005 and 2008 were retrieved from the in-hospital registry. The first group included 10 patients (6 women and 4(More)
PURPOSE To describe a technique of aortic clamping during endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in patients with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and circulatory collapse. TECHNIQUE A balloon catheter is inserted percutaneously from the femoral artery and inflated in the suprarenal aorta. An introducer sheath must support the balloon. The(More)
During routine autopsies and anatomical dissections the anatomy of the iliolumbar ligament was studied and determined. In previous studies and literature, the ligament has been described to consist of three to five parts. We found the ligament to consist of only two parts: the anterior part and the posterior part, both attaching to the L5 transverse(More)
We have recently described a new method for measurement of tyrosinase activity in small amounts of human serum (100 microliters), where the purification of tyrosinase is obtained by adsorption of the enzyme to concanavalin A sepharose. The method, which measures stereospecific dopa oxidation, was used in the winter of 1992-93 for the measurement of activity(More)
Serum samples for the analysis of tyrosinase activity were obtained from 10 healthy subjects in autumn, winter and summer. Tyrosinase was purified from 100 microl serum by adsorption to concanavalin A sepharose, the tyrosinase adsorbed to the gel being separated from other components by centrifugation. The gel was suspended in a buffer containing(More)
PURPOSE To review midterm results and morphological changes following endovascular treatment of acute complicated type B dissection and to study the relation between extent of dissection and treatment outcome. METHODS Between February 2001 and March 2008, 52 patients (38 men; median age 67 years, range 40-82) received thoracic stent-grafts for acute(More)
Part of the process of rehabilitation after a brain injury is the relearning of various daily tasks such as preparing food, managing finances, getting from one place to another and so forth. These tasks require learning on all levels from physical to cognitive. Remembering a PIN code for a bank card, for example, can become automatic and ‘in the fingers’(More)
