Between 1978 and 1992, 534 patients--including 35 (25 IDDM and 10 NIDDM) diabetics--were accepted to chronic hemodialysis (HD) at our Dialysis Center. The 1-year cumulative survival rate (CSR) was significantly lower in diabetic vs. non-diabetic group (66 +/- 8% vs. 78 +/- 2%), p < 0.05). At the onset of diabetes the mean age of IDDM patients vs. NIDDM(More)
Although various forms of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) account for up to 10% of patients requiring renal replacement therapy and severe complications may arise from these kidneys, no clear indications for pretransplant nephrectomy have been defined so far. A total of 104 renal transplants in three pediatric and 96 adult patients suffering from PKD were(More)
OBJECTIVES The eversion endarterectomy of the internal carotid artery was introduced in Hungary in 1991. The aim of this study was to define the long-term restenosis rate of this procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1991 and 1993, 171 operations, on 151 patients, were performed by single surgeon: with long-term follow up of 109 patients, which included(More)
To determine an in vitro marker of viability during pancreatic preservation, 12 pigs underwent total pancreas harvesting, and graft were stored in Euro-Collins or Belzer perfusion solution for up to 24 hours. Amylase concentration of the storage solution was analyzed in regular periods and tissue samples were taken for acridine-orange histochemical(More)
The surgery looking for new ways takes part in the treatment of the type I diabetic patients. The development of pancreatic transplantation in the last decades is discussed. Nowadays the procedure has become accomplished and widely used in the transplantation practice. According to the results of the clinical trials the pancreatic transplantation can(More)
OBJECTIVES The eversion endarterectomy of the internal carotid artery was introduced in Hungary in 1991. The aim of this study was to define the long-term restenosis rate of this new method. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1991 and 1993, 171 operations were performed by one surgeon on 151 patients: 109 patients had enough compliance to take part in(More)
In the surgical treatment of gallbladder cancer not only the traditional resections (right trisegmentectomy, lobectomy), but newer, parenchyma sparing multisegmentectomies, resection of 4B, 5, 6, that is transverse resection is also justified, as it is shown by demonstrating the 2 first cases in Hungary with transverse hepatectomy. World-wide there is a(More)
