Prevention of radiographic-contrast-agent-induced reductions in renal function by acetylcysteine.
BACKGROUND Radiographic contrast agents can cause a reduction in renal function that may be due to reactive oxygen species. Whether the reduction can be prevented by the administration ofExpand
Evaluation of caffeine as a test drug for CYP1A2, NAT2 and CYP2E1 phenotyping in man by in vivo versus in vitro correlations.
Caffeine is used to phenotype subjects in vivo for the cytochrome P450 isoforms CYP1A2 and CYP2E1, and for N-acetyltransferase type 2 (NAT2). However, how much of the variation in phenotypingExpand
Optimized enhancement in helical CT: experiences with a real-time bolus tracking system in 628 patients.
AIMS Ultrafast detector technology enables bolus-triggered application of contrast media. In a prospective study we investigated the benefit of this new method with the intention of optimizingExpand
Multislice computed tomography angiography of the abdominal arteries: comparison between computed tomography angiography and digital subtraction angiography findings in 52 cases.
Since the introduction of multislice CT scanners, CT angiography (CTA) has become a powerful tool for imaging the vascular system. We compare conventional angiography to CTA in the diagnosis ofExpand
The strecker stent: Indications and results in iliac and femoropopliteal arteries
We have implanted more than 100 Strecker stents in the iliac and femoral arteries. In iliac arteries, follow-up is available from 8 to 48 months (mean 20 months) and in peripheral arteries, from 8 toExpand
Endovascular irradiation--a new method to avoid recurrent stenosis after stent implantation in peripheral arteries: technique and preliminary results.
PURPOSE A high dose rate (HDR) afterloading technique for prevention of vascular stenosis or occlusion after percutaneous transluminal arteriography and subsequent stent implantation caused byExpand
Five year follow-up after brachytherapy for restenosis in peripheral arteries.
Restenosis in peripheral vessels caused by intimal hyperplasia after stent implantation, PTA, atherectomy or laser treatment ranged up to 40%. In order to avoid the hyperplastic reaction withExpand
Magnetic resonance imaging of bone marrow metastasis with fluid-fluid levels from small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the urinary bladder.
Fluid-fluid levels have been reported as an extremely infrequent and non-specific condition in many benign and malignant bone lesions. We present the first reported MRI findings of bone marrowExpand
First experiences in CT-guided percutaneous transhepatic biliary decompression by means of real-time CT fluoroscopy
AbstractBackground: Computed tomographic fluoroscopy (CTF), also called real-time CT, is increasingly used in interventional radiology but has not yet been recommended to guide percutaneousExpand
Iliac and femoropopliteal vascular occlusive disease treated with flexible tantalum stents
Two hundred patients were treated with tantalum stents, 2 in the aortoiliac bifurcation, 114 in the iliac, and 84 in the femoropopliteal arteries. The indications for stenting were technicallyExpand
