OBJECTIVES Our institution treats about 30 patients per year with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA). Between 2002 and 2007, our 30-day mortality averaged 58%. In July 2007, we implemented an algorithm to promote endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) when feasible. This report describes the outcome with this approach. METHODS Data on patients(More)
The Kaessmann compression device was employed in 26 patients with fractures of the long bones. In 15 fractures of the tibia, prompt healing occurred, even in fractures in the distal one-fourth of the tibia. Most of these cases were treated without external plaster support, and were permitted early ambulation, with partial weight-bearing. The technique for(More)
The benefits derived from intervertebral body fusion using a posterior surgical approach were studied in 500 patients. The cases were reviewed during a 25-year period, with an average follow-up period of more than five years. Only eight patients did not return for adequate postoperative evaluation. Seventy-five percent of patients underwent primary excision(More)
Generalized arteriolar vasospasm and subsequent damage to vascular endothelium are fundamental to the development of preeclampsia. A possible mechanism underlying this involves increased deportation of trophoblast cells into maternal venous circulation with 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin, 5-HT) release as a consequence of platelet aggregation onto these(More)
Measurement of carcinoembryonal (CEA) levels in pleural fluid are suggested to improve the unsatisfactory sensitivity of pleural cytology in the differential diagnosis of malignant pleural effusions. We evaluated simultaneously determined pleural and serum CEA levels in 117 patients with pleural effusions of different aetiology (74 malignant, 30(More)
