Coronary artery disease is associated with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. In this study, we evaluated the correlation of angiotensin l-converting enzyme (ACE) (I/D) and ApoE gene polymorphisms (E2, E3, E4 and g.-219G/T) with myocardial perfusion. We examined 410 patients using exercise-rest myocardial perfusion single photon emission(More)

Zentralvenöse Dialysekatheter sind für Akutdialysen als schnelle großlumige Zugänge zum Blutkompartiment unverzichtbar. Sollte ein solcher zentraler Venenkatheter mehr als 2 bis 3 Wochen notwendig sein, wäre schon initial oder sonst im Verlauf die Implantation eines getunnelten Dialysekatheters mit Cuff indiziert. Solche getunnelten Katheter können über(More)
