OBJECTIVE The purpose of this randomized pilot study was to collect preliminary data regarding the feasibility and effects of early initiation of milk expression on the onset of lactogenesis stage II and milk volume in mothers of very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. STUDY DESIGN Twenty women were randomized to initiate milk expression within 60 min(More)
A completely encapsulated intraocular pressure (IOP) sensor equipped with telemetric signal and energy transfer is introduced integrated into a silicone disc for implantation into the eye. After implantation into enucleated pig eyes and into rabbit eyes in vivo, the IOP was recorded and compared to established techniques of IOP measurement. Pressure chamber(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to develop surgical methods for the implantation of a wireless intraocular epiretinal retina implant (EPI RET3) in Göttingen minipigs. This animal model resembles closely the anatomical conditions in humans, and is thus suitable for investigating the EPI RET3 implant as designed for the application in humans. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous studies have shown reduction of periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) after hip replacement. The effect on the whole limb, however, is still unexplored. This study's objective was to analyse the postoperative development of BMD and muscle strength of the limb after total hip replacement (THR) and to determine links between these(More)
Monitoring of blood pressure and pulse rate offers diagnostical and therapeutical opportunities in hypertension disease and arrhythmia, respectively. This paper presents an intravascular pressure monitoring system consisting of an implantable silicone capsule, which can be placed in an arterial system via a catheter. The capsule contains a pressure sensor(More)
