Hyperlactaemia was induced by means of a standard exercise test in 10 diabetics receiving normal treatment with biguanides (either buformin, metformin, or phenformin) in combination with either a sulfonylurea or insulin. The treatment regimen was then continued without biguanides for 3 weeks and the exercise test was repeated at the end of this period. All(More)
BACKGROUND A lack of data exists on the long-term magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings after surgical repair of tibial plateau fractures (TPFs). We evaluated the MRI findings 13 to 31 years after surgical repair of TPFs, focusing especially on the pathological changes in the ligaments, menisci, and cartilage. METHODS Twenty-three patients with 24(More)
Endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) is regarded as an alternative therapeutic approach to the surgical treatment of choledocholithiasis. To clarify the indication for each of these two methods, a prospective study has been performed comparing patients with calculi of the common bile duct who had undergone endoscopic or surgical treatment. Mortality, morbidity(More)
The initial radiographs of 42 split-compression fractures of the lateral tibial condyle were studied. The breadth of the wedge-shaped fragments, measured at the level of the articular surface, was found to decrease with increasing severity of osteoporosis. Ranks were assigned to the breadths and average ranks to the grades (low ranks for normals).(More)
We examined the development of osteoarthritis (OA) and post-traumatic bone loss after surgery for tibial plateau fractures (TPF). Patients who had participated in previous follow-up (FU) examinations after TPF and primary reduction and internal fixation were re-evaluated. At the first FU, a median of three years after the accident (short-term FU), the(More)
