The association between hyponatremia and osteoporosis was evaluated in humans. A significant association was found between low sodium levels, lower bone mineralization in the hip, and with several common conditions. Hyponatremia could be used as a marker of osteoporosis and systemic disease. The objective of this study was to evaluate the association(More)
An osseous plasmocytoma was masked by an excessive tumor-like deposit of amyloid to such an extent that the primary disease was only diagnosed after histological examination of autopsy material from a 62 year old woman. The 20 cm in diameter tumor originated from the manubrium sterni. Other tumors were found in the ribs, right clavicle, thoracic and lumbal(More)
To examine the influence of intra- and post-operative blood loss and operative trauma on erythropoietin (EPO) production we studied patients undergoing endoprothetic surgery of the hip. Immunoreactive plasma EPO was determined in ten patients (seven male, three female, aged 39–68 years), undergoing surgery for hip arthroplasty (n=8) or revision hip(More)
A reclassification study based on the W.H.O. nomenclature was made of 255 testicular germ cell tumours examined in the Department of Pathology of the District Hospital Schwerin between 1958 and 1985. Thereby some cases of bilateral and familial occurrence were found. 4 cases (1.6%) with bilateral tumours were observed. Only in one of the four cases both(More)
INTRODUCTION In cases of post-treatment periapical disease, retreatment may be necessary. To choose the most appropriate retreatment method, knowledge of the long-term prognosis is important. Surgical endodontic retreatment (SER) is a relevant treatment method. This study assessed changes in outcome from 1 to 6 years after surgery. METHODS SER was(More)
OBJECTIVES Traditionally, healing after surgical endodontic retreatment (SER); i.e. apicectomy with or without a retrograde filling, is assessed in periapical radiographs (PR). Recently, the use of cone beam CT (CBCT) has increased within endodontics. Generally, CBCT detects more periapical lesions than PR, but basic research on the true nature of these(More)
Report about 155 cases of germ cell tumors observed at the department of pathology of the district hospital Schwerin, GDR, from 1958 to 1979 in orchiectomy specimens (146 cases) and in autopsies (9 cases; primary diagnosis at autopsy). The reclassification of the tumors according to WHO-Classification resulted in orchiectomy specimens 54 seminomas (37%), 18(More)
