Effectiveness and Prognostic Factors of Radiotherapy for Painful Plantar Heel Spurs
Background and Purpose:The efficacy of radiation treatment (RT) for plantar heel pain has been reported repeatedly. Yet, the results referring to the pain relief rate, to long-term effects andExpand
C-reactive protein, severity of pneumonia and mortality in elderly, hospitalised patients with community-acquired pneumonia.
BACKGROUND increasingly, markers of systemic inflammation like C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and white blood count (WBC) are being used for assessing the prognosis of patients withExpand
Successful treatment of intimal hyperplasia in renal arteries by endovascular brachytherapy.
PURPOSE The present study shows the possibility of preventing restenosis of renal arteries by endovascular brachytherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS We present a patient suffering from rapid restenosisExpand

[Case reports of operative management of very large, benign phylloid tumors--is a safety margin necessary?].
The phylloid tumor (PT, formerly called cystosarcoma phylloides) is a rare neoplasia of the female breast. Usually the PT is treated with breast-conserving surgery. In spite of progress in earlyExpand
