In sweep-oar rowers, asymmetrical force production of the legs is a known phenomenon. The purpose of this study was to investigate the muscular activity of the legs that may cause this asymmetry even when oarsmen perform a symmetrical endurance task. Seven male young elite oarsmen performed an all-out 2000-m test on a rowing ergometer. During stroke(More)
In a series of 6 patients out of 47 cases with extrarenal hyperparathyroidism we investigated the clinical, laboratory and ultrastructural peculiarities of acute hyperparathyroidism. It was found that there are characteristic differences between both entities which, however, are fluid. Clinically more severe were neuromuscular psychiatric and mental signs.(More)
Progressive symptoms of caudal compression (flaccid paraparesis, sensory disorders), accompanied by severe pain and fever, developed over a few days in a 26-year-old man with Crohn's disease for 11 years. Spinal computed tomography, performed under the diagnosis of herniated disc, revealed intraspinal soft tissue, as well as gas in the spinal canal (L2-S3)(More)
In cadaveric organ transplantation there is a risk of transfer of infectious agents from donor to recipient. The consequences can be fatal for immunosuppressed recipients. This is illustrated by a case history in which an infection with the fungus Monosporium apiospermum was transferred from a donor to two cadaveric kidney recipients, of whom one died and(More)
Benign liver tumors are generally removed because of potential complications such as bleeding and malignant growth. Liver cell adenoma and focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) are treated surgically according to these criteria, although they frequently present extremely high operative risk. Specific criteria of indication should be established for these(More)
Patients after kidney transplantation were investigated for parameters for kidney function and calcium metabolism including a definitively characterized parathyroid hormone (PTH) radioimmunoassay, of which quality criteria have been documented. In 72 transplanted patients 3 months to 7 years after operation a close correlation between graft function and(More)
From 1972 to 1977, seven liver grafts were performed. Liver disease: 3 hepatocellular carcinomas, I metastatic liver, 3 cirrhotic liver failures. The tumor patients survived 2.5 — 30 months, the cirrhotic patient died within 2 weeks postoperatively. Conclusion: In tumor patients, depending on the individual case, long-term survival can be achieved. The poor(More)
At Hannover Medical School, 1000 shunt procedures have been performed, including anastomosis with the basilic vein (18 cases), interposition of the saphenous vein (23 cases) or of a bovine xenograft (21 cases), used straight or as a loop. Lately the authors have used xenografts instead of the autologous saphenous vein, thereby easing anesthesia and the(More)
Diagnosis of peritonitis by clinical signs is difficult in critically ill patients. Instead we found renal and pulmonary insufficiency to be of diagnostic value in 56 cases. The discriminating laboratory parameters were: creatinine clearance < 70 ml/min and/or arterial pO2 < 70 mm Hg or FiO2 > 0.5, revealing peritonitis in 75%. With patients suffering from(More)
