We describe a newly developed multi-function video image analysis system for the computer-aided evaluation of capillaroscopic findings in microcirculation research. The Cap image analysis system comprises an IBM-compatible PC with a Matrox image processing card and real-time video tape digitalization. The video recorder is driven by a personal computer to(More)
The new scanning laser technique allows one to quantify the retinal microcirculation. A digital image analysing system was used to study capillary blood flow velocities and morphological parameters of perifoveal intercapillary areas and foveal avascular zones in normal and diabetic subjects. Diabetic patients showed a significant reduction in capillary(More)
Cardiovascular implants are increasingly important in regenerative medicine. To improve the safety and function of blood-contacting implants a major need exists for new polymer-based biomaterials that avoid adverse reactions, particularly thrombotic events. This review is aimed to summarize the multi-stepped and interlinked processes leading to a thrombus(More)
For the first time, a weak clinical efficacy of a 12-week therapy with garlic powder (daily dose, 800 mg) is demonstrated in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease stage II. The increase in walking distance in the verum group by 46 m (from 161.0 ± 65.1 to 207.1 ± 85.0 m) was significantly higher (P<0.05) than in the placebo group (by 31 m, from(More)
The scanning laser technique in combination with digital image analysis allows direct objective measurement of flow velocities in perimacular capillaries. In addition, the complete macular network of capillaries can be observed. By means of digital frame-to-frame picture analysis of digital recordings, blood flow velocities and morphologic data have been(More)
Significant positive effects could be achieved in a placebo-controlled double-blind study through the administration of 800 mg of garlic powder over a period of four weeks. Spontaneous thrombocyte aggregation disappeared, the microcirculation of the skin increased by 47.6% (from 0.63 +/- 0.13 to 0.93 +/- 0.22 mm/s), plasma viscosity decreased by 3.2% (from(More)
Video fluorescein angiography, combined with a picture analyzing system, is a clinically applicable, objective method of evaluating the retinal blood-flow parameters. Optical density measurements were performed on videorecordings of fluorescence angiograms by means of a picture-analyzing system in order to determine the circulation parameters of the retina.(More)
PURPOSE To assess the rheologic findings in acute central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) with respect to associated risk factors, the clinical appearance of ischemic or nonischemic CRVO, and to elucidate the etiology of possible changes. METHODS The authors enrolled 173 patients with acute CRVO (ischemic, 33%; nonischemic, 67%) in this prospective study.(More)
AIM To establish the extent to which contrast enhancement with SonoVue in combination with quantitative evaluation of contrast-medium dynamics facilitates the detection of hepatic tumors. METHODS One hundred patients with histologically confirmed malignant or benign hepatic tumor (maximum size 5 cm) were analyzed. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (bolus(More)
