In a cross-sectional study we investigated the relationship between muscle and bone parameters in the mid-thigh in older people using data from a single axial computed tomographic section through the mid-thigh. Additionally, we studied the association of these variables with incident low-trauma lower limb fractures. A total of 3,762 older individuals (1,838… (More)
A tumour-associated trypsin inhibitor (TATI) and the cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) were measured pre- or peroperatively in 30 patients with mucinous ovarian tumours (10 malignant, two borderline and 18 benign) to investigate the separate and combined use of the two markers as a diagnostic tool. In the malignant and borderline cases considered as a whole, TATI… (More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous work has shown that despite preventive measures, intraoperative contamination of joint replacements is still common, although most of these patients seem to do well in follow-up of up to 5 years. We analyzed the prevalence and bacteriology of intraoperative contamination of primary joint replacement and assessed whether its… (More)
Cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) and cancer-associated serum antigen (CASA) were measured in 24 women with pelvic masses before and after a gynaecological examination and ultrasonography. CA 125 decreased median 16% after manipulation (P < 0.0001) and CASA decreased median 8% (P = 0.0077). The decline was found in patients with benign tumours as well as in… (More)
