Die Hüftarthroskopie stellt mittlerweile eine gut etablierte Methode zur minimal-invasiven Behandlung von Hüftgelenkserkrankungen dar,ist aber technisch anspruchsvoll und aufwendig. Es ist die Verwendung eines Extensionstisches zur Gelenkdistraktion mit einer exakten Patientenlagerung erforderlich. Das Gelenk selbst liegt tief unter der Haut, was zu einer(More)
Die Hüftarthroskopie hat sich zu einer gut etablierten Methode der minimalinvasiven Behandlung von Hüftgelenkerkrankungen entwickelt. Traumatische und degenerative Läsionen des Knorpels, Labrum acetabulare und Lig. capitis femoris sind dabei häufige Operationsindikationen. Für die Diagnostik von Knorpel- und Labrumläsionen konnte nachgewiesen werden, dass(More)
We have investigated the relationship among the HIV-1 biologic phenotype, replicative capacity of virus isolates, HIV-RNA copy number in plasma, p24 antigenemia, CD4+ T lymphocyte counts in peripheral blood, and the clinical status in a cohort of 13 HIV-infected children younger than 12 mo of age, born of HIV-1 seropositive mothers. Six out of 13 HIV-1(More)
OBJECTIVE Prematurely born infants are at risk for development of neurocognitive impairment in later life. Oxygen treatment has been recently identified as a trigger of neuronal and oligodendrocyte apoptosis in the developing rodent brain. We investigated the role of the Fas death receptor pathway in oxygen-triggered developmental brain injury. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE Oxygen toxicity has been identified as a risk factor for adverse neurological outcome in survivors of preterm birth. In infant rodent brains, hyperoxia induces disseminated apoptotic neurodegeneration. Because a tissue-protective effect has been observed for recombinant erythropoietin (rEpo), widely used in neonatal medicine for its hematopoietic(More)
This study was performed to assess the clinical results of meniscus refixation using biodegradable Clearfix meniscal screws. Between July 1999 and June 2001 this technique was performed on 65 patients, of whom 60 (27 women, 33 men; 92%) were followed up by clinical examination after an average of 18 months (range 8–34). The average age of the patients at(More)
This prospective study was performed to assess the influence of limited weight-bearing on the outcome of osteochondral drilling in the treatment of an osteochondritis dissecans tali. Of a total of 85 patients, 68 (80%; 37 male, 31 female, average age 28 years) were followed up after open or arthroscopic drilling between July 1990 and March 2000. The total(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate serum levels of circulating intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (cICAM-1) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) levels in HIV-1-infected children at different stages of infection in children treated or not treated with Zidovudine (ZDV). DESIGN Serum levels of cICAM-1 and TNF-alpha, determined by enzyme immunoassays, were(More)
