Pathophysiologically, the non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI) results from reduced blood supply to the intestine, caused by "low cardiac output syndrome", or the use of certain drugs leading to intestinal vasoconstriction and stasis of the microcirculation. Regardless of the aetiopathogenesis, the patient's prognosis crucially depends on rapid(More)
Aneurysmal degeneration, or complete disruption of Dacron grafts (as opposed to anastomotic complications such as pseudoaneurysms), are not expected by vascular surgeons. We have noted two such cases. A 65-year-old male who had an aortobifemoral, double-velour Dacron graft in 1980, presented in 1995 with a large, pulsatile mass in the right lower quadrant,(More)
Antioxidants such as vitamin E protect unsaturated fatty acids of LDL against oxidation. In the ex vivo model used, LDL was exposed to Cu2+ ions, a potent prooxidant capable of initiating the oxidation of LDL. The lag time, indicating the delay of conjugated diene formation in LDL due to antioxidant protection, was measured in 54 cystic fibrosis (CF)(More)
The late organ complications in diabetic patients are associated with enhanced oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDL). The role of vitamin and trace metal concentrations in this process is not clear. Therefore, we compared the oxidative susceptibility and alpha-tocopherol concentration of LDL with the levels of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), copper and(More)
Transport of iodide into thyrocytes, a fundamental step in thyroid hormone biosynthesis, depends on the presence of the sodium-iodide symporter (NIS). The importance of the NIS for diagnosis and treatment of diseases has raised several questions about its physiological control. The goal of this study was to evaluate the influence of thyroid iodine content(More)
From September 1962 to May 1972 145 patients with acute or subacute deep vein thrombosis confirmed by phlebography were treated with streptokinase. During the same period 42 patients considered unfit for thrombolytic therapy were treated with herapin and oral anticoagulants. The results, assessed by repeat phlebography, in 93 of the patients treated with(More)
HISTORY AND ADMISSION FINDINGS Within a few weeks a 78-year-old woman presented three times in hospital with dramatic blood loss in need of transfusion. At her admission to hospital she complained about general weakness and painless melena. Within the last few years the patient had been treated with aspirin and phenprocoumon for chronic atrial fibrillation(More)
PURPOSE To look at the benefits and complications of different vena caval filters inserted prophylactically. Three temporarily implantable caval filter systems were used in 67 patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve Cook filters (six transjugular, six transfemoral), 11 Angiocor filters (one transjugular, 10 transbrachial), and 44 Antheor filters (three(More)
