SUMMARY Lhermitte-Duclos disease (LDD) is a rare cerebellar lesion with features of both malformation and benign neoplasm. However, the fundamental nature of the entity, its pathogenesis, and the exact genetic alterations remain unknown. We describe MR findings (including perfusion- and diffusion-weighted images) in two patients with LDD, as well as(More)
PURPOSE Pilot studies of combined therapies treating benign nodular goiters reported promising results. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of combined microwave ablation (MWA) and radioiodine therapy (RIT) with a special focus on thyroid function at the 3-month follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS 15 patients (median age: 55 years)(More)
AIM Goiters and thyroid nodules are an ongoing problem in healthcare. There has not been any treatment of goiters and thyroid nodules based on the combined therapy of microwave ablation (MWA) and radioiodine therapy (RIT) until now. In this study the potential benefit of a combined therapy versus single RIT is evaluated in order to achieve improvements(More)
Measurements of the canine skull are of main interest in brachycephalic dogs. They are suspected to have diseases associated with the shortened nose, which are summarized under the term brachycephalic syndrome. The relative length of the nose has become an important feature in breeding and research, although a definitive correlation to the brachycephalic(More)
Canine acute gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) is a life-threatening condition of multifactorial origin. The risk of developing GDV is influenced by a variety of factors, including breed, age, gender, temperament, diet and management. A relationship between seasonal variations and the frequency of GDV has been previously documented although no association(More)
In 32 male dogs colopexy, vasopexy, cystopexy and castration was performed for the treatment of perineal hernia. Recurrence rate in this study is 22%, what is comparable to other studies using different methods. The degree of severity and the number of complications is lower with this technique than with others. Enlargement of the prostate was evident in(More)
Ziel: Erste Studien zu verschiedenen Kombinationstherapien zur Behandlung benigner nodulärer Strumen überzeugten mit vielversprechenden Ergebnissen. Ziel der Studie war die Effektivität der kombinierten Mikrowellenablation (MWA) und Radiojodtherapie (RIT) zu prüfen, wobei die Schilddrüsenfunktion nach 3 Monaten im Fokus stand. Material und Methoden:(More)
1. Es wird über Ruhe- und Arbeitsversuche unter O2-Mangel mit Hilfe desKnipping-Spirographen und desKnipping-Ergometers berichtet. 2. Für Ruhe- und Arbeitsversuche ist die Wahl verschiedener Systeminhalte notwendig, um in gleicher Zeit eine gleiche O2-Drosselung bzw. gleiche Höhe zu erzielen. 3. Die Zeiten der O2-Drosselung entsprechen den Steigleistungen(More)
A dynamic fixation technique, that is technically easy and requires a minimal instrumentarium, is described for the treatment of subluxations, luxations and fractures of the thoracic and lumbar vertebral column in dogs and cats. Results of its application in 34 dogs and three cats are reported.
A Salter-Harris type I proximal femoral physeal fracture was diagnosed in a six-month-old Norfolk Terrier. The fracture was reduced using a ventromedial approach to the hip joint and fixation with two small Kirschner wires applied from the joint surface and countersunk below the cartilage. The ventromedial approach minimizes soft-tissue and vascular damage(More)
