Specimens of hoof horn from 187 horses were examined for a possible relationship between clinically affected hooves and the occurrence of pathogenic fungi. Specimens were taken from the coronary band and from the stratum externum and medium of the coronary horn and transferred on to Sabouraud dextrose agar, with and without cycloheximide, and incubated at(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was tested for evaluation of the soft tissue structures of the equine digit in 16 limbs, derived from three adult warmblood horses and two newborn warmblood foals. The following measuring sequences were used in sagittal, transversal and coronal planes: spin echo, gradient echo, inversion recovery. The images were made with a(More)
Between January 1975 and December 1984, 239 patients after breast conserving surgery were referred to the University Clinic for Radiotherapy and Radiobiology of Vienna. Of these patients 214 were available for analysis with regard to loco-regional control and cosmetic outcome. The breast received supervoltage irradiation from two tangential fields, in 82%(More)
UNLABELLED The results of a prospective study on breast conserving therapy in early stage breast cancer are presented. From January 1983 to June 1987 165 patients were treated by a standardized therapy-protocol. The criteria for entering the trial were stage T1 to T2 and N0 to N1. Surgical breast conservation was achieved by segmental resection in 148 cases(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors evaluate the role of low-field strength magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compared with sonography in the evaluation of degenerative changes of tendons, with histologic correlation, based on investigations of horse cadavers. METHODS Low-field MRI and sonography was performed in 42 hours specimens for the evaluation of(More)
In seven sound horses histamine plasma levels were evaluated by means of a radioenzymatic method using the enzyme histamine-N-methyltransferase (mean = 4.46 nmol/l, SD = 1.55 nmol/l). Histamine levels of laminitic horses were significantly higher (n = 11; mean = 12.46 nmol/l, SD = 3.24 nmol/l). In three sound horses plasma histamine levels were determined(More)
