Radiographic studies to discriminate benign from malignant pulmonary masses have previously focused on the morphologic and, more recently, the computed tomographic (CT) attenuation characteristics of the lung mass. Experience with the use of an intravenously administered iodinated contrast medium in examining the enhancement properties of lung masses was(More)
The Gorham-Stout Syndrome (Gorham's massive osteolysis) is a rare condition in which spontaneous, progressive resorption of bone occurs. The aetiology is poorly understood. We report six cases of the condition and present evidence that osteolysis is due to an increased number of stimulated osteoclasts. This suggests that early potent antiresorptive therapy(More)
Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) can monitor changes in cerebral regional oxygen saturation (rSO2) and tissue hemoglobin content (HbT). The relation between cerebral NIRS readings and vital parameters has not been analyzed before at a fine temporal scale. This study analyzed this relation during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) surgery in 10 children (0-9(More)
One rare case of so-called massive idiopathic osteolysis Gorham-Stout is presented. In a 77-year-old female patient the whole right femoral head and neck of femur was resorbed within 2.5 month following trauma. As a histologic cause for the osteolysis, a marked stimulation of osteoclasts on the spongiosa, especially intracortically, was observed. The course(More)
GERHARD is a fully automatic indexing and classification system of the German WorldWide Web for integrated searching and browsing. A database-driven robot collects academically relevant documents, which are automatically classified with computer-linguistic and statistical methods using the Universal Decimal Classification. The generated metadata and the(More)
Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) allows to study cerebral hemodynamics and oxygenation in neonates, which may be useful for early detection of cerebral hypoxemia. So far this method is not reliable enough to be used clinically. Reproducibility is one of the prerequisites for reliable quantitative monitoring. The aim of this study was to assess the(More)
Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare benign bone tumor, accounting for less than 1% of all bone tumors. The peak age incidence is the second and third decade of life. Chondromyxoid fibrom occurs in the metaphyseal parts of the major tubular bones, predominantly of the lower extremity. Roentgenograms show, in most cases, a well-demarcated radiolucent lesion. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Diagnosis of Guillian-Barré Syndrome usually is not difficult, but diagnostic failure occurs for the variable initial presentation. Diagnosis is based on physical examination showing loss of motor strength in more than one limb and loss of deep tendon reflexes. Ventilatory assistance, pharmacologic maintenance of cardiovascular homeostasis,(More)
