The pancreatic duct or at least parts of this structure can be demonstrated today by sonography in 75-85% of all persons examined. In 84 persons we have now measured the caliber of the sonographically visualized pancreatic duct in the region of the proximal body of the pancreas with special attention to dependence on age. The diameter of Wirsung's duct(More)
Blood flow velocity of the anterior cerebral artery was investigated by Doppler ultrasonography in five time intervals up to 20 min after birth in 16 non-asphyxiated very immature infants (median birth weight 1,058 g, range 720-1,930 g; median gestational age 30 weeks, range 27-32 weeks) delivered by caesarean section and intubated after birth.

Venous occlusion plethysmography is widely used to assess forearm blood flow (FBF). We compared the established Hokanson system (HEC4) with a newly developed Filtrass 2001 system (F2001). The HEC4 uses mercury-in-Silastic strain gauges, whereas F2001 detects volume changes with a nonmercury linear displacement device. The aim of this study was to evaluate(More)
The vitreous body of the baby owl monkey (Aotus trivirgatus) exists as a highly elastic gel composed of a collagen-like network. The owl monkey vitreous liquefies completely within the first 2 years of the Aotus life, corresponding to a human age of 8-10 years. Thus, Aotus provides the only known primate model for the rapid and complete liquefaction of the(More)
The authors investigated the effect of prostaglandin F2 alpha infused into the pulmonary artery of an acutely atelectatic lung in dogs. Seven dogs were anesthetized with piritramid and pentobarbital and intubated with a Kottmeier canine endobronchial tube. Cardiac output, pulmonary arterial, capillary wedge, and systemic arterial pressure were measured via(More)

Primary intravitreous HA injections cause a great variation in ocular inflammatory response, ranging from slight Tyndall effect (LI-HA) to severe inflammation (HI-HA). Both slight and severe inflammation are transient and subside completely within 10-30 days (early inflammatory response), whereas multiple injections ( greater than 3 times) cause a(More)
UNLABELLED The investigation of 400 adult mice had the objective to find out 1. The influence of splenectomy on genesis and growth of a benzpyrene-induced sarcoma and 2. The behavior of B- and T-lymphocytes under the influence of splenectomy. RESULTS 1. A significantly lower number of tumors developed in splenectomized animals (28.5%) as compared to(More)
160 chickens hormonally bursectomized before hatching, and 160 controls were twice given a dose of 10 mg 3,4-benzo(a)pyrene 2 weeks and 6 weeks after hatching. After 24 weeks the controls had developed muscle sarcomas at a significantly higher rate than the bursectomized animals (49.6--32.1%). The tumors were identified as malignant polymorphocellular(More)
