BACKGROUND Bioabsorbable stents may offer advantages for the treatment of benign and malignant biliary strictures, including large stent diameter, decreased biofilm accumulation and proliferative changes, elimination of the need for stent removal and imaging artifacts, and prospects for drug impregnation. However, suboptimal expansion has hampered prior(More)
AIMS DDD-pacemakers are favoured in patients with sick-sinus-syndrome or AV-block. However, AAI-pacemakers for sick-sinus-syndrome or VDD-pacemakers for AV-block may provide similar benefit with lower costs. The aim is to show that a tailored approach (TA) with arrhythmia-specific pacemaker selection was equal to a standard approach (SA) regarding quality(More)
Amiodarone is the most important drug in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias and is widely used for atrial fibrillation. Thyrotoxicosis, a classical side effect, was thought to be iodine induced, but recent evidence suggests that other mechanisms play an important role (toxic effect on thyreocytes, immunological effects). Thyrotoxicosis due to(More)
