Repetitive Long-Term Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) Administered after Experimental Traumatic Brain Injury in Rats Induces Significant Remyelination and a Recovery of Sensorimotor Function
TLDR
Protective long-term HBOT effects following brain injury is mediated by a pronounced remyelination in the ipsilateral injured cortex as substantiated by the associated recovery of sensorimotor function. Expand
Intrathoracic insertion of the VAC device in a case of pleural empyema 20 years after pneumonectomy.
TLDR
Surgical management of a 72-year-old man suffering from pleural empyema after pneumonectomy due to nonsmall cell lung cancer included partial resection of the chest wall followed by insertion of the vacuum-assisted closure system into the thoracic cavity. Expand

From January 2003 to June 2006, 6 patients with leakage of the cervical esophagogastrostomy after esophagectomy and gastric pull-up underwent endoscopic stenting using the self-expandable coveredExpand
Solid organ transplantation: Technical progress meets human dignity a review of the literature considering elderly patients’ health related quality of life following transplantation
TLDR
The number of elderly patients placed on waiting lists has increased dramatically and will further grow, however, data concerning quality of life and related parameters in elderly transplant recipients are rare. Expand
Hyperbaric Oxygen in Tinnitus: Influence of Psychological Factors on Treatment Results?
TLDR
The therapeutic effects of hyperbaric oxygenation for subjective tinnitus may be substantially influenced by psychological mechanisms. Expand
Traumatic pericardial rupture with cardiac herniation.
TLDR
Two patients with unexplained, persistent hemodynamic instability have multiple trauma with pericardial rupture, which was missed in the preoperative diagnoses of both patients, in spite of suggestive signs on computed tomographic scans. Expand
Extracellular concentrations of fosfomycin in lung tissue of septic patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that fosfomycin achieves antimicrobially effective concentrations in infected lung tissue in septic patients by utilizing the microdialysis technique. Expand
Hyperbaric Oxygenation in the Treatment of Life-Threatening Isobutyl Nitrite-Induced Methemoglobinemia—A Case Report
TLDR
The case of a 35-year-old female patient with severe life-threatening isobutyl nitrite-induced methemoglobinemia of 75% of total hemoglobin is described, and Toluidine-blue was administered as first-line antidotal therapy immediately, followed by hyperbaric oxygenation. Expand
High extracellular levels of cefpirome in unaffected and infected lung tissue of patients.
TLDR
Under steady-state conditions, the median concentrations of cefpirome in plasma, unaffected lung and infected lung exceeded the MICs of the majority of relevant bacteria over the entire dosing interval of up to 12 h after intravenous administration of a dose of 30 mg/kg total body weight. Expand
Photodynamic therapy for esophageal carcinoma*
TLDR
Local endoluminal palliation with the aim to improve swallowing, decrement of dysphagia and therefore improvement of the patient's quality of life are the main therapeutic goals of PDT in case of inoperable esophageal cancer. Expand
