The effect of 80% oxygen on pulmonary complications has not been well defined. OBJECTIVE To assess whether use of 80% oxygen reduces the frequency of surgical site infection without increasing(More)
BACKGROUND A high perioperative inspiratory oxygen fraction may reduce the risk of surgical site infections, as bacterial eradication by neutrophils depends on wound oxygen tension. Two trials have shown that a high perioperative inspiratory oxygen fraction (FiO(2) = 0.80) significantly reduced risk of surgical site infections after elective colorectal(More)

We therefore investigated estrogen and androgen status in 63 men admitted to our clinic with the diagnosis of osteoporosis over a period of 2 years. The diagnosis was based on the presence of either low-energy fractures of the spine or a BMD T-score <-- 2.5 in the(More)
