Total body Tc-99m pyrophosphate scintigraphy was performed on 11 "ultramarathon" runners to assess the ability of nuclear medicine techniques to evaluate skeletal-muscle injury due to exercise. We found increased muscle radionuclide concentration in 90% of the runners. The pattern of muscle uptake correlated with the regions of maximum pain. The detection(More)
The effects of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) treatment in 69 prepubertal, non-GH deficient children born small for gestational age (SGA) were evaluated over 2 years. At start of the study mean age was 5.1 years, mean bone age was 3.8 years and mean height SDS was -4.0. The children were randomly allocated to 3 groups receiving no treatment or(More)
This study was designed to determine the ambulatory arterial blood pressure profile in hypertensive patients with end-stage renal disease during and following hemodialysis. Blood pressure was noninvasively monitored at 15-min intervals for 24 h using a fully automatic portable recorder, while the 10 patients studied followed their customary activities and(More)
The results of studies performed by the authors show that time measurements of proprioceptive muscular reflexes (triceps surae and tibialis posterior reflexes) may be considered a valuable addition to methods of topical diagnosis of radicular disturbances in the lumbosacral region. The reflexes were tested in twenty normal subjects. There were found an(More)
The activity of LDG, ACE and CE was determined in the lumbar CSF and blood serum of patients with sustained mild concussion of the brain. As compared to healthy persons the diseased demonstrated a significant rise of the LDG activity in the CSF while the mounting activity of 2 other enzymes, observed in individual instances in the CSF, lacked statistical(More)
In brief: Bone scans were obtained on 37 entrants in the Western States 100-Mile Endurance Run between 24 hours and one week after the race. Laboratory tests were also performed. The purpose was to determine the degree of muscle and bone damage sustained. The scans of runners who complained of muscle pain showed regions of increased tracer concentration; in(More)
INTRODUCTION Clenbuterol has been used to alleviate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and elicit an anabolic response in muscles. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of muscle mass variation on physical capacities in rats. METHODS The left hindlimbs of Wistar rats were immobilized for 20 days in plantarflexion with a splint and then(More)
Lung transplantation in adults is an accepted therapeutic option, whereas in children there is ongoing debate on its positive impact on survival. We report our experience of the first twenty years of pediatric lung transplantation at a single center in Austria. Patient survival, organ survival and freedom from bronchiolitis obliterans were estimated by(More)
