OBJECTIVE Both helical CT and fiberoptic bronchoscopy are used in the staging of pulmonary tumors for therapeutic decision making. The improved resolution offered by helical CT has led to the clinical use of three-dimensional reconstruction techniques such as virtual bronchoscopy. We tested this new simulated endoscopic view of inner organ surfaces and(More)
OBJECTIVES To present a single centers' 7-year experience in the endovascular treatment of acute traumatic lesions of the descending thoracic aorta (ATL of the DTA). MATERIALS & METHODS Between March 1999 and December 2006, 34 consecutive acute traumatic lesions of the descending aorta (23 men, mean age 44 years) were treated endovascularly. Stentgrafts(More)
Preoperative diagnostic procedures in the treatment of non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) include fiberbronchoscopy (FBS) and CT scanning of the thorax and abdomen. The introduction of double-detector helical computed tomography has led to improved image resolution which allows three-dimensional reconstruction of the bronchial tree. A special computer(More)
From 1971 through 1996, 16 patients were operated on for atypical aortic coarctation. Three of them (two women, 18 and 27 years old, one boy, 13 years old) had typical signs of neurofibromatosis type I (NF1). All had renovascular hypertension due to suprarenal and/or interrenal aortic stenosis. Two had additional bilateral renal artery stenoses, one with a(More)
Changing financial incentives have strongly influenced dosing patterns of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) since its introduction in 1989. Although guidelines for prescribing rHuEPO exist, the extent to which they are adhered to is unknown. Using a retrospective cohort observational study design, the factors influencing the initial dosing of rHuEPO(More)
For arterial reconstructions veins or alloplastic vascular prostheses are used. Nonanastomotic pseudoaneurysms of vascular protheses are a rare event. Breaks of the suture material, structural defects of the transplant fabric or degenerative modifications in the recipient vessel can cause nonanastomotic or anastomotic pseudoaneurysms. Such pseudoaneurysms(More)
Current and future legislation demand improved efficiency in the medical services. The aim of this study was to analyse the costs of vascular surgery in order to reveal potential ways of reducing expense. Taking into account the staff, equipment and operating theatre supplies, we analyzed 58 elective operations comprising 47 conventional and 11 combined(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevention of hepatolithiasis and biliary stricture post choledochojejunostomy using choledochoscopy technique and evaluate feasibility and efficacy of choledochojejunostomy and artificial valve of efferent loop in preventing reflux. METHODS To analyze the data of 47 patients with hepatolithiasis who had been operated with(More)
