The initial survey of the unit suggested a low level of cross-infection involving Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Providencia stuartii. However, a longitudinal study of new admissions revealed that only 13 of 52 nosocomial(More)

An initial culture survey of the patients, ward staff, and environment was followed by a prospective sampling of 139 consecutive new admissions at(More)
Using colour coded duplex sonography in pre-operative diagnosis of insufficient perforant veins we succeeded in accomplishing a close correspondence between diagnostic methods and intraoperative findings. We examined 94 patients suffering from primary varicosis by duplex sonography and found 334 perforant veins in total, i.e. 2.4 per leg, which we marked(More)
Recombination – a mechanism of mixing genetic information – seems to be well understood. Recombination is usually seen as a process, which evolved to streamline the process of evolution. In this picture, high fidelity replication accounts for the genetic stability of an individual, whereas recombination creates some variability by mixing mutated products of(More)

Initially, a tumor was suspected because of an osteolytic destruction of the right proximal femur posing a high risk of fracture. Further diagnostic procedures detected a partially sclerosing(More)
