The incidence of fractures in the trochanteric region is high in the elderly, and early stabilization is required that allows immediate weight bearing. Older patients with low bone quality, limited compliance and strength, and the inability for partial weight-bearing, benefit from intramedullary stabilization of these fractures. The choice of implant and(More)

The composition of cutaneous lesions from 158 patients with confirmed cutaneous T cell lymphoma, 91 patients with suspected cutaneous T cell lymphoma, and 145 patients with lymphoid disorders other than cutaneous T cell lymphoma was quantitated in situ with the use of commercially available murine monoclonal antibodies that identify the Pan T,(More)
OBJECTIVE Simpson-Golabi-Behmel (SGBS) syndrome type 1 and type 2 represent rare X-linked prenatal overgrowth disorders. The aim of our study is to describe the prenatal sonographic features as well as the genetic work-up. METHOD Retrospective analysis of four cases with a pre- or postnatal diagnosis of SGBS in a single tertiary referral center within a(More)
Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus-strains, isolated from 1994 to 1997 from patients of the traumatic surgery hospital Tübingen, were compared using lysotyping and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Both typing methods detected two clones causing an outbreak 1994 in 6 patients and a third endemic clone of MRSA, which was isolated from 5 patients(More)

Pathological fractures and osteolyses with impending fractures of long bones impose a severe problem in patients with advanced cancer. For palliative treatment between June 1993 and October 1995 intramedullary nailing was performed in 19 patients with 13 femoral, 7 humeral and 1 tibial lesions; AO unreamed nails were used for this purpose (unreamed femur(More)

Methicillin-resistente Staphylococcus-aureus-Isolate (MRSA) der Berufsgenossenschaftlichen Unfallklinik Tübingen (BGU) aus den Jahren 1994–1997 wurden mit Hilfe der Lysotypie und der Pulsfeldgelelektrophorese verglichen. Beide Typisierungsmethoden zeigten, daß 1994 ein Ausbruch von 6 Infektionen auf 2 verschiedene Klone zurückzuführen war. Sie wiesen(More)
