Effects of alcohol on body-sway patterns in human subjects
TLDR
A comparison of the sway pattern of subjects after acute ethanol ingestion with the data of patients with permanent cerebellar lesions suggested that the acute effect of alcohol resembles that of a lesion of the spinocerebellum, which is consistent with a dose-related biphasic action of alcohol.

Ketoacidosis and lactic acidosis – frequent causes of death in chronic alcoholics?
TLDR
Ketoacidosis and lactic acidosis can be the cause of death of chronic alcoholics in a considerable number of cases where no pathomorphological or toxicological changes are present. Expand
Sudden death due to giant cell coronary arteritis
TLDR
An 89-year-old woman was found dead lying in her bed with a pronounced thickening of all coronary arteries except for the first 2–4 cm. Expand
The application of selected histochemical and immunohistochemical markers and procedures to the diagnosis of early myocardial damage
TLDR
The results show that selected application of a single criterion to the diagnosis of early myocardial infarction and/or ischemic fibre damage cannot resolve the diagnostic problem and a selected set of HIS/IH methods and the synoptic interpretation of all findings will improve the detection of earlyMyocardial Infarction/ischemic damage.

Fatal neglect of the elderly
TLDR
Risk factors of victims and caregivers were analysed in the context of the social history and in both cases, the victims had a dominant personality and the abusers had been strictly controlled and formed by the parent. Expand
Fatal intoxication due to excessive dichloromethane inhalation.
TLDR
Toxicological analysis showed excessive concentrations of DCM which are inhaled due to exposure of extreme air concentrations which were inhaled because of exposure ofextreme air concentrations. Expand
Fatal hepatic haemorrhage in a child—peliosis hepatis versus maltreatment
TLDR
The cause of death was determined to be exsanguination due to hepatic haemorrhage from peliosis hepatis instead of from mechanical trauma, and this is the youngest casualty of peliosis reported so far. Expand
Identification of mechanical asphyxiation in cases of attempted masking of the homicide.
TLDR
Lung histology and electron microscopy revealed acute emphysema, the development of a haemorrhagic-dysoric syndrome and a microembolism syndrome, and the complex pattern allows to compile the diagnosis of mechanical asphyxia even if there is no corresponding injury. Expand
Immuuohistochemical alterations after muscle trauma
TLDR
The degree of expression of these proteins can therefore be used to differentiate between vital and postmortem muscle damage as well as the estimation of wound age in the early antemortem time period. Expand
Detection and analysis of tracers in experimental drowning
TLDR
The detection and analysis of tracers in organs of the systemic circulation originating from the immersion fluid can assist in understanding the pathophysiology of drowning and in some selected cases, in making a more definitive diagnosis. Expand
