It was possible for the patients to avoid surgical intervention in a number of complicated periapical endodontic situations by means of Nd:YAG laser-assisted sterilization. A WSR has only very good primary results and the long-term successes are very limited. Once a lesions has healed in the manner explained in this study, in other words, with regeneration(More)
The Apo E genotype of 86 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 77 age matched controls was determined by digestion of Apo E PCR products with the restriction enzyme CfoI. The frequency of the e4 allele was significantly increased in the patient group (0.33) as compared with controls (0.12). This effect was seen in patients with a family history and in(More)
Estrogens attenuate cardiac hypertrophy and increase cardiac contractility via their cognate estrogen receptors (ERs) ERα and ERβ. Because female sex hormones enhance global glucose use and because myocardial function and mass are tightly linked to cardiac glucose metabolism, we tested the hypothesis that expression and activation of the ERα might be(More)
Hyperinsulinemia, a condition with excessively high insulin blood levels, is related to an increased cancer incidence. Diabetes mellitus is the most common of several diseases accompanied by hyperinsulinemia. Because an elevated kidney cancer risk was reported for diabetic patients, we investigated the induction of genomic damage by insulin in LLC-PK1 pig(More)
Peri-cardial effusion is most commonly associated with tuberculous infection in the developing world. Peri-cardial effusion causes symptoms when it is large or when it has accumulated rapidly. Non-tuberculous causes of peri-cardial effusion include bacterial infections, uraemia, viral infections, rheumatic fever, connective tissue disorders, post -(More)
Radioguided sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is the standard of care in breast cancer and melanoma. Additional preoperative Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT/CT) for improved anatomical co-registration of the SLNs causes additional radiation exposure and is time-consuming and expensive. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate a(More)
UNLABELLED A novel (18)F-labeled tracer, LMI1195 (N-[3-bromo-4-(3-(18)F-fluoro-propoxy)-benzyl]-guanidine), is being developed for sympathetic nerve imaging; its high specificity for neural uptake-1 mechanism has previously been demonstrated in cell associative studies and in rabbit and nonhuman primate studies assessing heart uptake. The aim of this study(More)
Approximately 3-20% of all reticulocytes in blood of healthy persons are immature and transferrin receptor positive (Tf-Ret). Tf-Ret were measured by flow cytometry in 27 patients treated with three different radiopharmaceuticals labeled with (131)I and in 25 healthy controls. Patients were chronically exposed within 6 days to blood doses from 0.18-1.89 Gy(More)
One patient developed pneumothorax during laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The pneumothorax was immediately drained with an intercostal canula. A diaphragmatic lesion caused by the electrocoagulator was identified and closed, surgery was completed, and the patient was not seriously affected by the complication. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy has gained enormous(More)
