Since 1979 a prospective randomized trial was done to examine the efficacy of intravesical doxorubicin as prophylaxis against recurrence. After complete transurethral resection of the tumor, patients were divided into 3 groups at random: group 1-no further treatment after transurethral resection, group 2-doxorubicin twice weekly for 6 weeks and group(More)
PURPOSE A randomized multicenter trial was done to compare transurethral resection only to transurethral resection plus adjuvant mitomycin C and bacillus Calmette Guerin (BCG) instillation for treatment of superficial bladder cancer (stage pTa/1 grades 1 to 3 except primary stage pTa grade 1). MATERIALS AND METHODS Included in the study were 337 patients(More)
In a clinical study with a modified shock wave generator supplied by Dornier Medizintechnik for the Dornier Kidney Lithotripter HM3 the requirement of analgetics decreased significantly during Opioid-Analgesia. It could be shown that Extra-corporal Shock Wave Lithotripsy is possible without a central acting drug. Furthermore, a reduction of perioperative(More)
BACKGROUND We measured frequency and epidemiologic, clinical, and hematochemical variables associated with respiratory tract infections (RTIs) in foreign-born and national patients hospitalized with fever with a history of international travel, and compared the final diagnosis of RTI with the presence of a respiratory syndrome (RS) at presentation.

Free perforation of the bowel due to cancer in Crohn's disease is very rare. One case found among 75 cases of Crohn's disease is reported. The perforation occurred in a mucinous adenocarcinoma of the ascending colon in a 54-year-old woman with a 17-year history of Crohn's disease, who had undergone two previous operations of small bowel and colonic(More)
In a retrospective study of 33 patients the influence of different anamnestic, clinical and laboratory parameters on the progression of renal failure was investigated. The analysis of progression of renal failure was evaluated in terms of a reasonable criterium intuitively suggesting itself which is based on a non-linear fitting of the serum creatinine(More)
Before surgical treatments, sera of 54 pts suffering from gastric cancer, histologically typed and clinically staged (from stage 0 to 4), were assayed to evaluate CEA, TPA, CA 19-9 and Ferritin versus a new tumoral marker called TAG-72, in order to determine the biological behaviour and the relation to the clinical stage of this last one. Starting from(More)

The encouraging results obtained using pulsed Doppler sonography for antepartal diagnosis gave cause to use the method during labor. For this purpose a group with normal course of pregnancy was examined by Doppler sonography. This group was compared with a similar group examined by the same method at onset of labor with the cervix beginning to dilate, or(More)
In the first half of pregnancy ultrasound investigations was made on women with known gestational age by regular menstruation or conception. In 221 cases of single pregnancies fetal crownrump length was measured. Biparietal cephalometry was performed in 198 single fetuses. All examinations were done with a Kranzbühler Linearscanner using an ADR 3.5 MHZ(More)
