Exercise during growth and adolescence increases bone mineral density (BMD) in weight-loaded skeletal regions. The development of BMD in unloaded or minimally loaded regions during activity is unclear. We measured BMD in one unloaded, one partly loaded and one highly loaded skeletal region in 67 active soccer players, mean age 22.7 years (range 17–35(More)
Central nervous system (CNS) - related symptoms occur in haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). To study the CNS and ophthalmic involvement in nephropathia epidemica (NE), the European type of HFRS, we included 26 patients in a prospective study. Most common CNS-related symptoms were headache (96%), insomnia (83%), vertigo (79%), nausea (79%), and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate a general school-based 1-year exercise intervention program in a population-based cohort of girls at Tanner stage I. Fifty-three girls aged 7–9 years were included. The school curriculum-based exercise intervention program included 40 minutes/school day. Fifty healthy age-matched girls assigned to the general school(More)
The quality of chronic kidney disease (CKD) care and the control of CKD progression factors and of comorbid conditions according to current recommendations in primary care were investigated in this retrospective cohort study of 127 consecutive CKD patients. CKD was advanced (glomerular filtration rate 21 +/- 10 ml/min). Fifty-seven per cent of patients had(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) for categorizing the severity of carotid disease relative to duplex ultrasound scan and cerebral contrast arteriography (CA) to determine if MRA imaging could replace the need for cerebral angiography in cases of indeterminate or inadequate duplex scan(More)
Higher bone mineral density (BMD) has been reported in weight-loaded skeletal regions and lower BMD in unloaded regions in active athletes compared with controls. These discrepancies remain the first decades after cessation of active careers in former athletes with no remaining discrepancies found after age 65 years compared with ageand gender-matched(More)
We describe the histopathologic findings of perineural invasion in orbital mucormycosis in a man with diabetes in ketoacidosis. Linear enhancement on MRI beginning at the orbital apex was correlated with fungal tracking of the trigeminal and lacrimal nerves. Mucormycosis can spread considerable distances from its primary focus of infection along peripheral(More)
AIMS To assess the impact of late referral (LR) for nephrological co-management compared with early referral (ER) on morbidity and mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and to identify individual factors associated with higher mortality in LR, correcting for lead-time and immortal time bias.
