AIMS Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) may be a risk factor for expansion of infarct size early after acute myocardial infarction (MI) by exposing the heart to repetitive oxygen desaturations and increased cardiac afterload. The objective of this study was to assess the impact of SDB on myocardial salvage and infarct size within 3 months after acute MI. (More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to prospectively evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of intraarterial (i.a.) and i.v. MR angiography (MRA) of the infrainguinal arteries in comparison with the reference standard selective digital subtraction angiography (DSA). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty consecutive patients with symptomatic peripheral arterial(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has been shown to allow accurate visualisation and quantification of aortic valve disease. Although bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) disease is relatively rare in the general population, the frequency is high in patients requiring valve surgery. The aim of the current study was to characterise the(More)
Clinical symptoms in descending perineum syndrome show considerable variations, ranging from obstructed defecation to combined fecal and urinary incontinence and including different types of prolapse. Differential diagnosis has to compete with this complexity. Common pelvic floor disorders associated with descending perineum are rectocele, rectal prolapse,(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with mitral regurgitation (MR), assessment of the severity of valvular dysfunction is crucial. Recently, regurgitant orifice area has been proposed as the most useful indicator of the severity of MR. The purpose of our study was to determine whether planimetry of the anatomic regurgitant orifice (ARO) in patients with MR is feasible(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated the reliability of various multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) parameters for diagnosis and severity assessment of pulmonary hypertension (PH) with consideration of World Health Organization (WHO) classification. METHODS A total of 172 patients were included in this retrospective study. One hundred fourteen patients had a(More)
Die steigende Verfügbarkeit leistungsstarker Computertomographen hat dazu geführt, dass die Anzahl inzidentell detektierter solitärer Lungenrundherde („solitary pulmonary nodule“, SPN) in den letzten Jahren deutlich gestiegen ist. Diese SPN müssen einem sinnvollen Management zugeführt werden, um einerseits frühzeitig auf maligne Läsionen reagieren zu können(More)
Atrial septum defects (ASDs), ventricular septum defects (VSDs) and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are the most common adult congenital heart defects. The degree of left-to-right shunting as assessed by the ratio of flow in the pulmonary (Qp) and systemic circulation (Qs) is crucial in the management of these conditions. This study compared phase-contrast(More)
GvHD is a serious complication in patients after allo-SCT, presenting with unspecific symptoms such as abdominal pain or cramps and diarrhea. Early diagnosis of GvHD, after differentiation from other causes leading to the same symptoms, such as viral or bacterial enteritis, is highly important because the time needed for diagnosing GvHD is directly(More)
AIM To compare the results of high-resolution ultrasound (HR-US) and magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) examinations in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). METHODS The reports of 250 consecutive cases with known IBD, who had an MRE and HR-US examination, were retrospectively analyzed. Using a patient-based approach we evaluated(More)
