A population-based case-control study of bladder cancer was conducted in 10 geographic areas in the United States. Risk of bladder cancer was not related to overall alcohol intake, nor to amounts of wine, beer, or spirits consumed. Alcohol also did not interact with known or suspected bladder carcinogens to increase risk, and no evidence was found that(More)
BACKGROUND The current treatment standard of infected infrainguinal prosthetic vascular grafts includes total graft explantation and autologous vascular reconstruction. In the absence of appropriate autologous venous graft material prosthetic grafts with increased bacterial resistance can be used, whereas reinfection rates are still higher than after(More)
OBJECTIVES To demonstrate the feasibility and safety of proximal sartorius muscle rotational flaps in patients with peripheral occlusive artery disease. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 53 patients with 56 proximal sartorius muscle flaps. Indication for a flap procedure was postoperative calcitrant lymphorrhea in nine, graft at risk in 13, and graft(More)
Recently, we have proposed a new concept for analyzing EEG/MEG data (Uhl et al. 1998), which leads to a dynamical systems based modeling (DSBM) of neurophysiological data. We report the application of this approach to four different classes of simulated noisy data sets, to investigate the impact of DSBM-filtering on source localization. An improvement is(More)
BACKGROUND This pilot study was set up to examine the effects of a continuous postoperative wound infusion system with a local anaesthetic on perioperative pain and the consumption of analgesics. PATIENTS AND METHODS We included 42 patients in this prospective observational pilot study. Patients were divided into two groups. One group was treated in(More)
The agreement between self-reported consumption of several drugs and laboratory tests used to detect their use is examined. Post-partum women (N = 108) enrolled in a research study participated in a detailed interview covering alcohol and caffeine ingestion, tobacco smoking and use of marijuana and other psychoactive drugs. They also kept a 4-day record of(More)
BACKGROUND Many centers choose endovascular intervention as their first-line treatment for crural occlusions in patients with critical limb ischemia (Rutherford 4-6). However, unsuccessful interventions often result in major amputation. Therefore, pedal bypass surgery should be considered as an alternative first-line treatment. We reviewed the impact of a(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular recanalization has become the accepted first-line treatment strategy for most lower extremity arterial occlusions, especially in patients with critical limb ischemia (Rutherford 4-6). Prior endovascular interventions have been described as risk factors for the outcome of subsequent lower extremity bypass surgery. The effect on(More)
BACKGROUND We examined short- and long-term outcomes of tibial and peroneal venous and heparin-bonded expanded polytetrafluoroethylene bypasses in patients with critical limb ischemia who were unsuitable for endovascular revascularization. METHODS A retrospective analysis was done for all patients who underwent tibial and peroneal bypass surgery in our(More)
