STUDY DESIGN In this study, 14 conservatively treated patients were reviewed who had eosinophilic granuloma of the spine, which had been diagnosed on the basis of histologic study of the vertebral lesion or of specimens from other sites in patients with multiple involvement. The remodeling of the vertebral body was studied in an average follow-up of 5.6(More)
In the period from October 1986 to November 1988 in the Medisch Spectrum Twente of Enschede, 25 patients were treated for a tibial plateau fracture by means of arthroscopic surgery. The mean hospital stay was 18 days. Active movement of the leg was prescribed from the fifth day. The results were very good in 23 and poor in 2 patients. Complications such as(More)
Because of its fibrinolytic action, streptokinase is believed to reduce the severity of the postthrombotic syndrome in patients with deep vein thrombosis. A prospective and a retrospective study have been undertaken in an attempt to determine when this therapy is useful for patients with deep vein thrombosis. The prospective study included 15 patients with(More)
The interaction between Botrytis cinerea Pers. and grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) was studied in a model system of reduced complexity. Cultured plant cells and fragments of fungal cell wall were used to simulate some of the processes taking place upon infection of grapevine with B. cinerea. A soluble glucan elicitor was prepared from the fungal cell wall by(More)
A 17-year-old patient with pre-existing grade II spondylolisthesis of L5/S1 sustained a partial disruption of the left sacroiliac joint with haematoma of the iliac muscle after a fall. The haematoma probably led to occlusion of the left ureter, resulting in a urinary tract infection. After initial conservative treatment the patient developed fever and(More)
The treatment of axillary-subclavian vein thrombosis is still controversial. Development of a post-phlebitic syndrome in patients treated conservatively occurs in many patients. Therefore more aggressive treatment is advocated. We report six patients treated with selective low-dose streptokinase infusion with excellent short-term results. Major(More)
Based on the case histories of six patients with carcinoma of the thyroglossal duct, the literature on the origin and treatment of this disease was reviewed. As to the treatment of papillary adenocarcinoma there is some controversy, although in most cases treatment is limited to local excision as described by Sistrunk, provided that tumor growth is(More)
The indication for operative treatment in spondylolisthesis results from pain, progressive sliding and, in up to 60% of the patients with progressive dislocation, from radicular malfunction. The posterolateral fusion in situ is a safe procedure, but the deformation remains and in spondyloptosis plastic deformation of the fusion mass can lead to further(More)
